We have a Dyson DC-25 ball and bought this vacuum as a "backup". What we found out pretty quickly is that the Bissell cleans better than the Dyson, and is quieter. The Dyson handles much better around chair legs etc because of the ball. Have had the Bissell a month now, with no problems at all. We like the placement of the power and brush on/off switches, being right below where you hold the handle. Someone said they didn't like the big back wheels, but I think they make the vacuum easier to push, as it is very easy to push. It probably does make it a little harder to get around chair legs etc. This vacuum feels a little lighter than the DC-25, but if all the attachments were on it, it would likely weigh about the same. We thought of the Shark before buying this, but the Shark has a much smaller dirt container, and vacuums a much narrower area with each push. I do wish that it had a longer crevice tool, and it would be nice if you could put all the attachments on the vacuum itself but, of course, that would add weight, so it's not all that important. Very happy so far, with the purchase.
