Occasionally I will feed my Dyson a cotton ball that has been sprayed with essential oils - I personally like spearmint. This leaves the room smelling fresh and clean without being overpowering.

I have this dyson too for about a month now and love it! I have 3 dogs and 1cat.

Yeah. I have always had cats. I have berber carpeting. For a very long time whenever I vacuumed with my new Dyson I would get these curly cat hairs that were deeply imbedded into the carpeting.

I don't know what's the matter with Consumer Reports. I used to trust them, but they never do well with the Dyson for some reason.

This is the first vacuum I ever had that has the air smelling cleaner after I vacuum. Like another post here, I keep it plugging in all the time and use it often. I love the convenience of the attachments and adore the clear canister so I can see the junk I am picking up. Instant gratification!

My Dyson is one of the older ones. We must have had it for about 7 years. Never a complaint. The newer ones are supposed to be even more powerful.

It is so great not to need belts and bags.

All my floors are carpeted, so I cannot comment on the floor problem that was mentioned except it seems to pick up fine in the kitchen.

My friend actually has a Dyson upright vac and after I used his I was sold instantly! This thing is amazing at the suction power it has to remove dirt and residue at the base of the carpet fibers. Many vacuums also leave deep vacuum trails. I find the Dyson minimizes this as well.

Will be purchasing mine very soon!

I just got a DC14, reconditioned (so only about $259.), from overstock.com, today. It is a bit hard to push, so if this is an issue for you you might not like it, but I'm embarassed at how much dirt it pulled out of my carpet. This vacuum really sucks up the dirt.
It feels awesome when you know you're really getting the dirt out.

I've had all sorts of vaccums over the past 47 years (that's not my age - it's my married years).....my husband is obsessed with vacuums and always looking for a better one.....which is a good thing because we live in the country and he is not prone to taking his shoes off coming out of the garden and also not prone to kicking the cats out of the house. But since we got our Dyson Animal he has quit searching for a better one - he thinks he's found the best there could be. It's super - he even uses it himself just to admire what it can do.

I've had a Dyson for a few years and I love it. It's the best vacuum I've ever had. It's the purple pet machine and it really picks up the cat hair. Plus I have not lost one single attachment because they all click in so easily.

Just got our Pet Dyson (whichever purple one) with all the little attachments a few weeks ago and I just am amazed at how much hair it pulls up every time I use it (we have dogs). I can vacuum just after two or three days and fill up the canister. Hair will fly from across the floor and into this vacuum.

I think I've become a little obsessive since I got mine. I'd rather see how much dirt I can see going into the clear canister than go to the movies.
One little complaint is that it's too big to go under things like beds and sofas very well.

I'm a Dyson convert too. When they first came out, I scoffed at them, thinking they were too cutesy and plasticky to be proper vacuum cleaners. But it's amazing! Got a Golden Retriever who sheds like crazy and the Dyson sucks it all up.

Yes, when we first got ours this would happen and then it happened less and less. We feared it was losing suction, then we realized it was pulling the old hairs out of the carpet that the old vacuum missed.
I think that the reason why it may seem hard to push is that the vacuum is so good with the floor surface.
