Comments about Dyson Origin Upright Vacuum:
Sadly, my DC14 tank-of-a-machine was out of warranty and wasn't working so instead of repairing that wonderful machine, I purchased the DC40. Absolutely detest this machine. The hose and cord are shorter, the suction forces me to run over a piece of lint multiple times, the attachment brush at the end of the hose is very difficult to remove (and is necessary because it's essentially useless). The good points are it's a Dyson machine that is very easily cleaned and taken apart.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I replaced an older model with this DC 40 last year. It is not as durable and feels like cheap plastic. I cannot roll it on its wheels without having the handle portion flop backward into vacuum position. It does have good suction but I worry about the attachments and the extension wand since that is what broke on my older model.
We love our vacuum it has ...
We love our vacuum it has worked better than any other brand we have had. We used to go through vacuums every 6 months or so. They would lose their suction. We have had this one for 9 months and its still working great! it's not heavy so its easy for me to take up and down the stairs. I would recommend buying this one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This is my 2nd Dyson, have an Animal model DC41 purchased in 2010. I don't like that you have to pull down handle to use, I prefer the way it was before that you put your foot on the red bar to release the lock to vacuum. I find that it releases when going from tile to carpet & vice versa. It works well but does tangle more than the older model. I like that it's light weight. I feel like Dyson is not making the machines as durable as they used to which is unfortunate because I really like the vacuums
My old vacuum quit, which used a bag. I wanted a bagless vacuum. After much research about Dyson vacuums, I decided I wanted one. Our home has hardwood and carpet. In one room we have a 12x12 area rug on hardwood. After assembly of my new Dyson DC40 Origin, I vacuumed the 12x12 which had been vacuumed a few days earlier with the old bag vac. It was AMAZING the lint and crud that was in the Dyson canister. Such a small area had this much dirt. I then rolled it onto the hardwood and turned off the brush bar. It was also amazing how it maneuvered. I could have pushed it with one finger. Yes, it is just a vacuum cleaner but if you want a cleaner home, buy a Dyson.
I love my dc 40!
I wanted to wait until I had my dyson for awhile to review it. Ive had many vacuums and also professionally cleaned businesses and homes for many years. I put my vacuum through the ringer. I have a Siberian husky which requires daily vacuuming. I love the ease of the hose release for getting in edges. I also really like the pet attachment for my furniture. The ease of taking it apart for maintenance is splendid. everything comes apart at the right areas and easily. I accidentally sucked up a neck tie the other day with the hose ( don't ask) and no problem. just popped it apart and pulled it out. It has great suction. The only thing it is not great for is my hardwood floors doesn't pick up as good as Id like. I use another vacuum on my hardwood floors.
Best Vacuum EVER
Very Pleased with this product. The product has always been true to it's brand. Don't use the pull out extension much because I own a cordless as well but wouldn't hesitate to use if if needed. LOVE IT.
my second dyson
i purchased my first dyson when they first came out. absolutely loved it!! the plastic wasn't as great as it should be and i noticed when my kids bought theirs that it had been reinforced. i was really sad when it broke beyond repair and i had to get a new one. this one is taking some getting used to. it does fit into more spots as an upright, but i find it cumbersome in some respects. the container needs emptied way more often and i find i need to put my hands in the dirt often because it gets stuck in there.. gross. also it has so much suction when using the attachments that its impossible to vacuum any throw rugs.. it just sucks them up. In other words... i miss my dyson :-(
Remanufactured and mind blowing!
In my small apartment, in one cleaning, this vacuum filled the container. I was blown away. Never have I seen a vacuum cleaner work so well. And it being a remanufactured product goes to show me the serious of Dyson and its products. They just made a loyal customer.
This machine has been wonderful to pick up animal hair from my carpeting and hardwood floors. It is used weekly and with cats and dogs that are indoor/outdoor, I needed a machine that would do the job. This one does it. It is easy to use and clean and has been a big help in keeping the floors clean.
