I love it my life is easier

I have both tiles and carpet. This vac was purchased for me by my OT based on the fact it would be easier for me to use post car accident  Show details

CANT BE WITHOUT IT

Its the best product I've ever bought! One stroke of this machine on the carpet tells the whole story! there is no other vacuum like it. The Hepa filter is great, no smells or dust flying out of the machine. Its durable easy to clean, picks up every solitary particle on carpet and floor. The rug attachment is great too, makes life easier.  Show details

Handy stick vac

Dyson stick vac that is really useful on stairs when you dont want the hassle of getting big vac out, would never replace big vac for carpet . Use on tiles, carpet & soft furnishings picks up all types of fluff, dirt, crumbs etc easy to manoeuvre. There is a handy you tube on how to dismantle vac for cleaning, which I recommend you do regularly as the filters make it easier for the vac battery not to loose power or wear down. Also has a max button to lift stubborn dirt. All in all an happy with it.  Show details

Love everything about it, apart from the battery life

I use this on my whole home, mixed for floor boards and carpet. Highest strength on carpet and lower on the floor boards. Highest picks up so much dust its amazing.
Battery is short, probably 15 mins on highest setting. I get about 25 mins on lowest. Its quit heavy but you aren't using it for long periods at a time so isn't too but.
Love that its cordless, love the strength of the suction.  Show details

Literally use this hand held vaccum daily

I resisted getting a hand held vacuum for so long. Finally my husband convinced me, and I’m a complete convert.

I cannot stand dirty floors, and use this vacuum often multiple times a day. It is powerful, and power levels can be adjusted as needed.

It is a light and easy to manoeuvre appliance, negating the annoying power leads of larger vacuum cleaners. I can give my entire home (4 bed rooms) a run over, and the battery holds up to the test. I find it works well on both tiles and carpet.

Another great feature is it uses bagless technology - super easy to empty the barrel straight into the bin.  Show details

Quick and easy to use

This stick vacuum is easy to use and maneuver around furniture. Great for those quick clean ups and day to day tidy up. Does well at picking up fur and everyday dirt. Easy to empty, but need to aim to avoid mess. A bit more effort to clean the bin and filters. Battery doesn’t last as long as I thought, but enough to do a few rooms. Show details

Doesn't stay charged long

When I received my Dyson I fell in LOVE with it! But it doesnt stay on for long, I manage to do most of my downstairs floor (pretty big down stairs) and it dies just as I start to go up stairs and do the laundry. It picks up most of my crap on my floor and I clean out the filter regulary.

Would not buy one again unless they change the design of how long it lasts!!  Show details

Not what I expected

Heard so much about the Dyson brand. Bought v7 as a Christmas present to myself 2019. Have persevered but it is just no good on my tiled floors. Have reverted back to a broom and dust pan. Carpet comes up pretty good. Maybe the top of the range models perform but in my experience v7 does not pick up anything other than tiny dust particles and does not get into the corners.
UPDATE Dec 2023. Well my Dyson is still going and I have learned to use the maximum suction on my tiled floors for better result. Although it means that it needs recharging sooner. The fact that it is still going after three years has to be a positive. Show details

I received a used vacuum cleaner

I purchased a brand new Dyson V7 Animal vacuum cleaner from Dyson's website. But I received a used vacuum cleaner. I emailed the photos to Dyson, Dyson replied it is normal and it's their new way of package. It will be in the same condition if they exchange a new one to me. Show details

Doesn't suck up the dirt

The vacuum spits the dirt back out and doesn't clean my laminate floor. After spending $400 on this cleaner I am very dissatisfied. I have been reading so many bad reviews about this vacuum cleaner and I think that they should discontinue this model and not waste people's money. Show details

TERRIBLE !

Best result is to remove filter which defeats the purpose of having a filter .  Show details

2 Dyson's now and quality is terrible

I've bought 2 Dyson's in the past and each of them - after 2 years end up breaking (and I always looked after them). Dyson's are overpriced and are not 'made' to last - many friends have discussed the same thing with me. My sister bought a Dyson v10 and needed 2 new parts after 10 or so months and the vacuum cost almost $1000! Not good enough. I will now buy a cheaper vacuum and I will probably have it for years to come. It's a big thumbs down for me. Very disappointing. Show details

Very overrated

I have a polished timber floor-have moved house and had tiles and carpet previously-both results the same. Only sucks up some of the dirt and blows the rest around. Had a no name cordless previously and it was so much better! Not even 18 months old and battery needs replacing!!! Can’t believe it has been such a waste of money-paid $449- Lynne Smith  Show details

Disappointed product compared with our Dyson product that we had previously

Recently bought a brand new replacement. Used for the first time to clean my tile flooring, not used in MAX mode, when finished and when charging, a solid amber indicated. It only disappeared when you unplug and plug back in again after a few minutes. Now it becomes a routine, quite disappointed. Show details

How many bad reviews does this product need?

Battery life is so obviously poor, not only my experience but every review says so. Not only do you have to pay through the nose for a replacement battery, (should be replaced for postage costs only, as they’re clearly faulty), but they’re so poor you can’t even buy one, as they’re permanently out of stock! Der, wonder why? Will never buy Dyson again. This was a Christmas gift so do not have proof of purchase, so this will probably not be posted as won’t be verified as a “genuine” customer. Great reviews for xiaomi-dreame-v9. That’s going to be my next purchase. Show details

Very good

Great cordless. Upgraded from the v6absolute after having that a few yrs the battery deteriorated. V7animal much quieter than the v6, dustbin empties very easily, batt lasts over25mins, powerful, extra attachments useful for vacuuming crumbs off sofa. Much cheaper when on sale vs newer models and does the job for a quick vacuum which is what i needed the cordless for. Show details

Dissatisfied

Overrated for sure. Bought this because we have a large dog and a small house mostly carpet. It quit working almost 2 years to the date we bought it. I’ve done all the recommendations for troubleshooting. It runs 10 seconds then shuts off. So bummed.  Show details

The Best Ever

I use this Dyson on both floorboards and carpet. I have to say, that so far this is the best vacuam I have ever used. You can see and feel the difference on the carpet especially. It's quite surprising how much dust ect it picks up. I can highly recommend Dyson and I'm an asthmatic so removing dust is very important to myself. Show details

Defective motorhead... Would recommend against purchasing

Brand new out of box today. Motorhead spins for 2-3 seconds then stops. Carpet or tiles or hard floors doesn’t matter. Can’t see any blockages or reasons. Literally vacuumed about 2 square metres and it discovered issue and now wasted like an hour trying to troubleshoot. Based on questions and reviews seems like this batch is defective or deficient.

Battery lasts MINUTES

Very light, great suction but the battery life makes it a full day job... and I'm in an apartment.

I don't think it's worth the money. I am pretty disappointed for my first Dyson experience. Show details

Waste of money

Bought this Dyson handheld as we have a corded vac as well. Have had nothing but trouble with the battery not staying in place and have had it repaired under warranty 3 times. Still having same problem and will only work for about 8 mins if that. The head stops working even after it has been cleaned. Show details

Light and powerful suction but battery doesn't last long

Very light and easy to use.
Works well on carpet and hard floor, with a powerful suction. The brush attachment will help get sand and pets hair out of carpet and rugs.
The only issue is the battery only last for 8min at full power. It would be great if the battery was easily removable so that you can have a second battery on stand by. Show details

Best Vacuum Cleaner so far!

This is by far my best vacuum cleaner. I use if for carpet and wooden floor and it works perfectly in both types of floorings. Nevertheless, the MAX option only lasts for 10 minutes. So I will normally use the normal mode for vacuuming which is already sufficient for me to clean my house. Show details

What a surprise

I must admit that I was sceptical the battery would last long enough to do a e bedroom house but it does it with ease on the normal setting. You get at best 20mins on the max setting. But have found it still woks fantastic on tbe normal setting even with pets so a massive thumbs up from me. Show details

Great Performace

Very happy with this vacuum cleaner! I use it to clean wooden floor and carpet. Both works fine. It has two power modes. I use MAX mode to clean carpet for stronger suctions. (MAX mode only works for around 6 minutes until the battery dies). It just works perfectly. It is also easy to clear the dusts/rubbish in the vacuum cleaner. I would definitely recommend this product! Show details

Happy customer

I have a Dyson core vacuum already. This is an extra for easy handling. I suggest this won’t be big enough for a big area carpet vacuum job as you will need to empty the bin each time after cleaning. In terms of the performance, it’s as good as all other Dyson products I am using. Show details

STILL IN LOVE

Thanks Mr DYSON for my second Dyson in 12 years. Loved my original barrel vacuum and it gave us 12 years of faithful service, but now we have had to replace it and just bought the new Animal cordless 7. What a delight it is to have this machine. We have dogs and I have tried other Vacuums. NO comparison for suction and performance. JUST LOVE IT. Show details
