Not so great on some rugs

I am a professional housekeeper. I waited to write this until I had used the vacuum awhile. This picks up pretty well on most rugs, but on some tightly woven rugs and mats it doesn't pick up fur and lint that isn't even attached to the carpet. I think that this is because the height is not adjustable, and it needs to be closer. It does not get near the edges--prepare to use a tool for that. You have to be careful that it has clicked when you stand it up because sometimes it doesn't catch and falls over (this is really annoying). I don't use the tools on this because they are frustratingly awkward to use. I don't think that this is worth the price. I have used much cheaper vacs that are better. On the up side, on some rugs this picks up great. It's light. It works pretty well on hard floors. You can turn the brush roll off and on.

Hi there, this is Joe with Dyson. Thank you for your review of our DC40. DC40 is our midsized vacuum and although not our most powerful machine, it features over 200 air watts of constant suction which should be plenty to tackle even the most stubborn pet hair on your rugs and carpeting.<br /><br />The active baseplate is designed to maintain optimum contact across multiple floor types without having to bend over and manually adjust the cleaner head. <br /><br />For help with your machine, please send us an email to askdysonUS@dyson.com and we will be in touch.<br /><br />Best wishes,<br /><br />Joe <br />Dyson Customer Service

I deal with MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity) and a host of allergy-type health issues. When it came time for us to buy a new vacuum, I did hours of research and pricing to make sure we were getting an allergy-friendly, affordable vacuum. The Dyson DC40 did just that for us! We were originally going to buy a larger size but the DC40 has turned out to be perfect for us - small enough to fit in a little coat closet yet has a powerful suction and motor. I compare this to my parents' expensive European made vacuum and the Dyson is just as wonderful. I'm always amazed at how much dust and dirt this little vacuum can pull out of the carpet and off the wood laminate floors (and yes, I am a very clean housekeeper!). I was initially concerned about the bagless system, but have been pleasantly surprised at how neat and easy it is to dispel and replace on the vacuum. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone who is needing an allergy-friendly, affordable and compact vacuum. We LOVE our Dyson!!!

I am really satisfied with my DC40-- it has all the high standards of a Dyson, is very light and easy to maneuver. The filter is a snap to clean-- speaking of which, I love how the air in my house smells so much cleaner after I vacuum-- not just the floors, but the air! And it cleans exceptionally well. My mom had one of the original Dyson models that was built like a brick house. I heard about all the improvements to the design, with the ball technology and everything, so I decided to go for it. There are advantages as far as weight and maneuverability, but as a person who tends to crash the vac into the corners of walls at any given opportunity, I sometimes feel like I might break it (I have Not broken it though). One other minor annoyance is that I had to take off the bottom part (the sucker, the sweeper, the register, whatever you call it) and clear the tubing by hand the other day. If I hadn't a pair of hemostats on me I don't know what I would have done! Overall, though, great product!

My boyfriend picked his mom's 5 year old Dyson up after a warranty repair and brought it back to our house until we could get it back to her. (Her repair was minor and covered completely.) We decided to test it out in our house and I fell in love immediately. We searched around online and found an amazing deal online for our very own. We purchased from an authorized retailer to make sure we received the 5 year warrant. The first time I used our new Dyson I couldn't believe how well it worked. I had just used our old vacuum and then went back over it with our new Dyson. I was amazed at how much the Dyson picked up that our old vacuum did not. We have been using our new Dyson for a couple of weeks now and I feel like our carpet even feels different now. It feels so clean on our feet. I have and will continue to recommend Dyson to every person I know. My parents have a DC35 and love theirs as well. I can't wait until I am able to get one to help out with the smaller messes around the house.

LIKE: lightweight efficient packaging, easy and intuitive to assemble; I pre-read reviews complaining about "cheap plastic" but was armed with the knowledge that parts are made from polypropylene reinforced with 20% glass fibres and high-impact PC-ABS. Using these materials means greater strength from less plastic – so the machine is lightweight - love that! Also like: design improvements from my last machine including easier access to clean the bar brush and longer more durable cord, cord head is weightier so it doesn't fall out of the socket - THANK YOU! LOVE: the suction and performance; I have 2 golden retrievers and this vacuum picked up better than my previous animal model, no clogging, no bar brush problems, just 3 full canisters of golden hair and dirt with no exhaust or filtration issues, just clean carpets and clean air Dislike: the non-lingual pictorial instructions - it's like playing charades by yourself - when it's time to clean the filter I'll have to go online and find some videos

I am very happy with my Dyson. It has excellent suction. The first time I used it there was a lot of fine dirt and much pet hair in the clear canister. I had used my old machine the day before, so I did not expect to pick up so much dirt and hair from my rug. I also like its light weight and easy maneuverability. My old machine weighed twice as much and was too wide to move between the legs of chairs and coffee tables. Cleaning the canister is a snap. It detaches easily and empties fully. And, when i vacuum I cannot smell a musty odor from the machine. I have used my machine every day for two months and the filter is still white. As for the hose, it is susceptible to tearing where the hose meets its handle, so I am very gentle when I use the hose. On the other hand, the handle and its attachment is very suitable for reaching high into the corners of walls and removing cobwebs. Second, the cord is ten feet too short for my liking. Overall, I like my Dyson very much. I definitely would buy one again.

Blown away by this vacuum

I am absolutely blown away by this vacuum. I have wanted one for years but couldn't afford it until now. I was under the impression that my previous vacuum was working but I was wrong. After using my Dyson just once in my home it sucked up all kinds of disgusting fine dust and hair out of my carpets. I had replaced the carpets in my home just 2 years ago and I was horrified to see that my old vacuum hadn't really kept them clean. My carpet literally looked brand new again, I was shocked. I vacuum more frequently now because I love to see how much dirt I can prevent from building up in my house. I have a mixture of wood floors, carpet and rugs and this vacuum works wonders on all of my surfaces. If you want a cleaner and healthier home this is a no brainer. The ball design is easy to use, the unit is relatively lightweight and the attachments are awesome and provide just as much suction as the rest of the piece. I can't say enough good things, this really is a great product.

I have a dog and 2 little boys, living in Florida with lots of bugs, sand, dirt, and them dragging them inside all the time, I have used this almost on a daily basis. Had another popular brand before but the hoses kept falling apart. I love the fact that the hose is straight up and down although it is a little different than the traditional vacs that have the wrap around, but again, different in a good way (like otheres mention it is sort of stiff to pull the hose out) I love the transition from rugs to tile as my house has lots of little rugs, all different sizes on top of tile so it zooms smooth and quick from each one without having to adjust anything! It works well and does a good job. So far so good, I love it, I just don't think I can afford another one if this one dies :( That is my only downfall as a mommy my pockets are stretched thin but keeping a home clean for my children is very important to me and this Dyson allows me to do just that, thank you Dyson!

I have read some reviews of this model complaining that it is not as powerful as the old Dysons. I think that may be true. I had an older model that seemed more powerful (was certainly louder) but I eventually burned out the motor out with all the dog hair. I went from that to a canister which was okay but can be a pain to maneuver around the house and after having abdominal surgery I was unable to carry it. I wanted something lighter weight and for me this is just about perfect. I do not have any carpeting in this house. Just hardwood floors with a couple of area rugs. I also have two dogs that shed so I need to sweep and vacuum a lot. Because this model is lightweight and easy to maneuver it makes the task easy so I do it more often. Going from floor to rug is simple as well and I appreciate that the brush on/off is very simple to reach (on the canister vac it was a pain). I have not used all the attachments yet but the set up is simple. Overall I am very pleased.

When it was time to replace my old canister vacuum, I was not sure which vacuum to purchase, there are so many on the market and it had been years since I had shopped for one; my mind was made up to replacing it with another canister, until I saw a demonstration of the Dyson DC40 on television. I liked the upright performance and the ability to convert to the hose and wand for certain areas. It is so easy to carry about, only weighs about 14 pounds. The attachments work very well, the one for stairs, the mattress tool, the brush-all of them work well. The vacuum stays at the bottom of the stairs, and the wand and hose reach to the top of the stairs. I couldn't believe what my old vacuum did not pick up-and what I vacuumed up the first time was shocking! I love the bag less feature, and the ease in emptying the canister. The Dyson is powerful, and my vacuuming chores are less than before. I enjoy this vacuum, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thank you!
