Love my Animal
Comments about Dyson Big Ball Cinetic Animal Canister Vacuum:
Best vacuum I have ever had! Superior suction and ease of use. Only one problem I have had. The head has a piece of velvet across the bottom for gliding purposes and assist with suction to hard floors. It has come off and I am now without a vacuum until it can be repaired.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great cleaning, messy emptying
I don't know how I ended up with a vacuum that doesn't have an easy-empty canister, but that's what this is. It cleans wonderfully, is easy to use and pretty quiet to boot, but when it came time to empty (which is real soon, since the fill line is only an couple of inches from the bottom) I was shocked to see the canister bottom drop open and half the dirt remain in the canister even after shaking it. I thought I must be missing the magic lever that drops all the dirt effortlessly into the trash. So I went back to their mind-boggling Website. Guess what -- I didn't buy that vacuum after all. You will not find a video of how to empty this vacuum because it is a mess to empty. I re-read the instructions and saw, "Clean the cyclone shroud with a cloth or the provided brush ..." and looked again through all the attachments for anything that looked like the "provided brush." Anything that would make emptying the canister -- which will be needed every couple of rooms -- easier than it is. Dang! Well, at least my house will be clean now ...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Sweeps well, small waste bin, bad emptying desigh
Bought this model about a year ago as I could no longer manage our larger one due to shortness of breath. First I noticed it really picked up the dirt better than our in use Dyson model. The kitchen floor actually felt clean and crumb free! My problem is with the smaller dust bin and the emptying process. With the dog hair, I found there was too much hands on to empty it. To avoid this, I use my Dyson upright to "empty" it by sweeping it out This makes it not as easy to use as I had hoped. I do like the blind attachment I purchased. It works better than any attachment or gadget I've had.
Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal vs DC 39 Animal
I am a big fan of my Dyson vacuum... because I have two Samoyeds, and a lot of fur on my floor. The DC 39 has served me very well for 5 years and is still going strong. And then Dyson gave me the opportunity to try the Cinetic Big Ball Animal. Here's why I like the Cinetic Big Ball better: 1. It's quieter. Not a whole lot quieter, and the DC 39 is already a nice level of quiet for a vacuum, but it was noticeable. Even the dogs noticed, and cared even less that i was running around picking up all their shed mess. 2. It is more stable. I didn't have a lot of complaints about the DC 39, but it will tip. This new Cinetic Big Ball is seemingly impossible to tip. 3. The handle is improved. I never thought that would even be something I noticed until this articulating handle came and showed me how to improve on a handle. It's easier for vacuuming, it's easier for storage. 4. The brush head collects fewer hairs inn the bristles and more in the canister. That means I spend less time untangling long dog hair from the brush head. So to me, that's an efficiency improvement. What I don't like: 1. I liked the way the canister empties on the DC 39 better than on the Cinetic Big Ball animal. I'm sure I'll grow to enjoy it just fine, but I do think the DC 39 style was less messy. (caveat: the canister on the Big Ball Animal reattaches easier than the DC 39, so that's a plus). That's the only thing I don't like as well or better than the DC 39 Animal. Overall, the Cinetic Big Ball Animal canister does a great job of removing pet fur, dirt and small debris from any surface I ask it to - carpet, tile, area rug. It's not a shop vac, and I don't use it like one. I use it to keep my floors clean and the air quality nice in my home. For what I want out of a Dyson pet vacuum, it more than meets my already high expectations.
I was deciding between this Cinetic Animal Canister Vacuum vs. the Upright Animal Vacuum and I settle with this one because after i tried using my sisters upright I felt that it was heavy. First, I've never really owned a nice vacuum and thought that shoppers were paying for the brand vs. the quality. Boy was I wrong, We purchases a new house so we have a lot of dust re-settling on our floors. After the first 10 minutes of use I had to stop the vacuum because I wasn't sure that it was working because it was so light to the hold. But then when i looked at the canister there was so much Fine dust that was filling up. Then, I knew this vacuum was amazing. I like to clean but now I'm afraid that I'm going to be OCD because of this vacuum. That's how good it is in my opinion. I love that the canister is easy to move around and that the handle is so light! I would recommend this vacuum!
You will be amazed at the dirt!
I love the Dyson Cinetic Animal! It is the first Dyson I have ever owned. It's so lightweight and compact, yet amazingly strong. We have an indoor dog who sheds terribly. The Animal has made the pet hair more manageable. It is also very easy to store. I was blown away the first time I vacuumed wit it.
Love my new Dyson!
Cant say enough great things about this vacuum cleaner. Very easy to move around. I have 16 stairs leading to my upstairs and dreaded vacuuming them. Until now, its no longer the chore it was. I don't have to move furniture around as much as I did with my upright. Easy to vacuum under beds, sofas. One of the biggest thing I noticed was that it doesn't blow dog hair around my house. My old vacuum did, I always felt like I had to chase the dog hair to vacuum it up. This vacuum is awesome although I've only had it a few weeks. Cant see us owning anything else but a Dyson. Well worth the price.
We were skeptical of getting a Dyson, having never used one or seen it in action, just relying on what we had heard and read. The good reviews swayed us to try one and we are very grateful that we did. The unit is light weight but powerful. The attachments are ergonomically designed and effective. The Dyson seems to pick up much more pet hair, dirt, and dust than our old bagged vacuum (although no way to quantify that opinion). It is easy to handle and maneuver, the collection bin is easy to empty, and the cleaning effectiveness is superb. We are very pleased with our purchase.
I am so pleased with this vacuum. I have a 10 year old Dyson upright that is still going. The extra tools for this vacuum make cleaning the house easy and quick.
Everything I Expected
I had heard only great things from my friends who own Dyson upright vacuums so I expected this vacuum to perform well. Since I have primarily hard floors, I needed a canister style vacuum. When I found this one by Dyson I knew I had to try it. It has not disappointed. It has amazing suction and maneuvers easily. The slim profile makes it easy to reach under furniture. The attachments are SO much easier to use than with any upright I've ever owned. But keep in mind that if your floors are primarily carpet, your best option is probably an upright vacuum.
