My wife and I have the Dyson Ball (not sure on the model number, I think its the DC25, the ball is purple for whatever that is worth).

It does a bang-up job. I like the bagless mechanism. It does a bang-up job with the attachments, especially the upholstery attachment. We have two long-hair cats that tend to hang out on the couch (more than I'd like them too). A few sweeps of the upholstery attachment and the hair is all gone. I think it was worth the extra money.

Bought a Dyson Animal on sale at Target for $225. I know, amazing price. It does a great job and feels like a quality product. My only complaint is that its a bagless. I prefer bagged vacuums over bagless because ALL bagless vacuums make some sort of mess when emptying it. Even this one with the snazy little push button trap door on the bottom of the canister.

I think it's a matter of your habits. I never emptied my bagged vacuum often enough, I think. I always opened the back and felt that the dirt was not up to the refill line and kept using it. Sometimes the damned bag broke or just broke loose. I must be a dunce at these things.

The Dyson, though, I empty often and before it reaches the empty line. I remove the canister and place the whole thing inside a plastic shopping bag that has no holes in it. I shake the canister a bit while releasing the bottom latch and continue shaking while pulling the canister upwards. Before it leaves the plastic bag I manually close the bottom with my hand on the outside and the bottom of the canister on the inside. I then tie the bag in a knot and vacuum the floor around where I did this.

I do the entire procedure as low as I can so whatever dust I have does not wander about.

I find this procedure a lot cleaner and less smelly than my old vac. It might have something to do with the size of the dust particles. We have clay soil over here. Again, most household 'dust' is our own dead skin cells.

I have had a Dyson for over 10 years now and I will never buy another brand unless Dyson goes out of business... Absolutely brilliant machine, the suction is as good as it was when we first bought it, and we had no problem with it at all apart from having to buy a new "bin" when we broke it .

I do love the fact that it is bagless, I don't find it creates any mess at all but then again I empty it inot our compost bin in the garden. I am always amazed at how much dust and dirt the thing picks up and when we clean the fliter every six month ,how disgusting it is. I vaccum every day as well....

Default Dyson Rocks

I cannot tell you how much money we have spent on vaccum cleaners. We have a chow and trying to keep up with the hair being everywhere seemed impossible. We went through three vaccums within a year. Bissell, kenmore, etc., and finally decided to give Dyson a try. Well I have to say the money was well worth it. We bought the Dyson for pets at Sears and I love it! In fact I will never buy any other brand. I have not had one issue with this vaccum and its power is incredible. It is true it does not lose its suction and handles the mounds of hair easily. Go for the Dyson!
