I love this vacuum! I swept my floor with my old Bissell and then went over the same area with the Dyson. It picked up as much as it had with the Bissell. Then I realized I hadn't even turned the brushes on. Love how i can manuever it around and under furniture i never could before. Only con: Directions are pretty awful.

To the first reviewer of this vacuum: If you want a canister vacuum, go buy the Dyson Canister vacuum. Honestly, you complained about everything that has to do with an upright vacuum. I will admit, the vacuum does blow hot air from the vent on it. Have you ever owned a vacuum that does not blow hot air? I haven't. I have previously owned two Hoover vacuums and a Bissell Clean view I just purchased in February. The Hoover lasted just 4 year sweeping the floor once a week being a single male. I literally got this vacuum and swept the floor with my Bissell vacuum I purchased no more than 4 months ago, then I swept with the Dyson. I was SHOCKED!!! I couldn't believe how much dirt was left over in the carpet. I am being serious, you would not believe it unless you saw it. The ball technology design is a dream come true, talk about getting under everything. The coat rack, just glides right underneath and along the edges of furniture. It is amazing! I admit I thought Dyson vacuums were overpriced. My sister always says her 6 year old Dyson works like the day she got it. These vacuums are incredible. And no I don't work for Dyson, I wish I did!

This is my second dyson machine. I LOVED my old animal. This is not the machine the old one was. After only a few months, the hose ripped. All in all a good machine, just not sure it was worth the money.

I'm loving this vacuum. First time I used it, we thought it made the carpets look like they'd been cleaned. It got a LOT of dirt & dust...yuck. So easy to maneuver (love the way it turns), very light. My favorite thing is it adjusts to different floors (we have carpet, rugs, wood floors, and linoleum). So easy to empty the canister. I'm happy there are no filters to replace (just have to periodically clean it). Easy hose for cleaning up high. I'm VERY happy. It was expensive, but worth it. I was tired to replacing cheaper vacuums every year! I feel like this one will last a long time.

I have been shopping around for a new vacuum cleaner.I have a Hoover Windtunnel that I have had for several years. I always felt that it did a good job,but it is very heavy which did'nt used to be a problem,but as I have gotten older it was just too heavy for me. I had always heard that Dyson made very good vacuums. I shopped several stores online and found that Wallmart had the best deal.I saw that the DC40 only weighs 12.5 Lbs and I read the reviews and decided to order it.I am totally amazed at the amount of dirt and dog hair that it pulled out of my carpet. It is much more powerful than my Windtunnel. It was simple to assemble. I still need to get used to using it,but I think that the hose might not be long and flexible enough. Cord could be a little longer also.

I just love my Dyson DC40. I have a dog and to vacuum is no longer a chore. I love the push buttom to empty the canister! I really like how easy it is to move around, and I love that the edges pick up real well. This is a great vacuum!

Let me start by saying I've always had a canister vacuum cleaner (Hoover to be exact). I have used uprights in the passed but don't like them because they can't get everywhere. I saw the Dyson DC40 on QVC and was impressed. The rep said it was only 14 lbs. and she kept holding it up above her head. I've heard about the great suction so I took the plunge and bought one. I am returning it. If you are used to the weight of an upright vacuum, the 14 lb weight of the Dyson may not be an issue. I am used to a lightweight pole with a powerhead on the end so the Dyson seemed very heavy. Also, with a canister the cord is behind you between the canister and the wall. With an upright, the cord is right there and you have to hold it or trip over it. This is a pain. This Dyson is great for carpet but has no crevice tool, which I used often with my canister. Even with the tools it does have, there's no place to attach them to the upright so mine are in a closet and I constantly have to keep track of them. This is a pain. Also, this upright is difficult to use on stairs. You pull out a wand and a hose. The hose on my Dyson is sooooo tight, even after stretching, that I can not keep the upright from being right behind me. On the Dyson infomercial, it shows a rep cleaning 6 steps up while the upright is sitting at the bottom of the steps. I could not do this because the hose was so "tight" I had to bring the unit with me because there was so much tension, I could only go 2-3 steps from the unit. If I pulled too hard, it would fall over. The hose is so tight that it hurt my back after I used it. Also, it's great on hardwood flooring but .... the hose has so much tension and pulls the upright behind you at such close range, that you trip over the unit. And the wand is too short, and I am only 5'6". When I do my hardwoods, I find I only get results if I CARRY the upright with one hand while I bend partway over and use the wand with the other hand .... and of course the cord is there all the time to trip over. That's 14 lbs of carrying. This is a pain. My bathroom tiles are also a problem because, even with the hardwood attachment, the suction is so powerful that sometimes I have to PULL the head off of the floor. There's no place to adjust the suction. Again, dealing with the suction, the short wand and the fact that the hose has so much tension #oh and the cord# .... Oh and this vacuum blows out very hot air from the back, all over your feet and legs. You will be in a sweat by the time you finish your chores. If you look on the Dyson webpage for reviews and questions from owners, you will see many people ask about that hot air because they don't like it. I contacted Dyson and told them about these issues. First I was told to get another person and help me stretch out the hose. My sister-in-law has another Dyson and said in three years her hose hasn't stretched out. Then I sent them an e-mail - and was told to call the customer service number. I have decided to return my Dyson DC40 to QVC for a $10.95 return fee. I don't know if I can match the suction of a Dyson, but I'm sure I can find something more user friendly and certainly more worth my money. I think this unit is way too high priced for what it lacks compared to a high quality canister-style vacuum cleaner.

we bought the vacum on black friday 2012. our other vacum only last 2 years so we figured we would bit the bullet and buy a dyson... it works great but feels like it might break. it seems to pick stuff up pretty good but my wifes hair and our dogs tail hair seems to get tangled up on the brush....it got so bad it quit spinning, and our other vacum we have had for 2 years have never had that problem, kindof thinking we maybe should have got the anaimal on but it was so much more costly and looks like it would do the same thing....i was wondering maybe the suction hole is to small for hair to be sucked up...but all in all i am somewhat please love the way it drives. kindof thinking maybe to take it back and try the animal dc 41, plus the cord is longer on the dc41....dc40 multi floor cord is a few feet shorter then out old one so i have to plug it in in 2 different spots in the room to cover everything

I am in love with my new Dyson! I was amazed by how much dirt it picked up when I had just vacuumed 2 days prior. I was also impressed with the fast delivery and reduced price through WalMart!

Put vacuum together and had no suction. Husband tinkered with it until he got it to suck. Very poor performance picking up dirt and kitty litter. Vacuumed up a mess of box elder bugs and the canister was a complete mess, I had to wash the entire thing (it would have been quicker to simply have swept up the bugs instead). The third time I used it it had again completely lost suction. Will be attempting to return it. Went and bought a fabulous Simplicity vacuum from a reputable dealer for less money.

I was shopping for vacuum cleaners because my old one broke. I planned to replace it with the same brand. When I saw the price of my replacement vacuum cleaner, it seemed a poor value because I had to purchase a three- year warranty. By comparison, Dyson cost includes a 5-year warranty. And, it looks sturdy, which is important. I am a "klutz". I got more than I bargained for! It picked up the fine dust from my kitchen floor. The floor looks like I washed it. And, I was stunned by the amount of dirt it picked up from my carpet -- I have allergies and vacuum often. I am disabled and happy to find that weight doesn't matter. This maneuvers easily. When it is not in use, I tip it onto small casters and roll it from room to room. The large handle makes it easier to lift than my old, lighter-weight vacuum. This is gross -- but, my dog is constantly licking his paws. The excess saliva leaves an intolerable odor on the carpets. Dyson vacuum eliminated the odor on first use. I do not have to wash it -- at all! Summary: Don't let the price and weight fool you. It's a good value and well-designed structurally as well as functionally. Final word -- I already dropped it. No harm done.

This is the lightest, most powerful vacuum I've ever owned. Great suction power and not as heavy and bulky as my previous vacuums. Well worth the price. Quick delivery too.
