We have an urban-style 2 story house with about 1100 sq ft each floor. Downstairs is all wood floors, upstairs all carpet. One charge will allow a full sweep of the lower floor; may take more than one 15 minute go-round for the carpeted areas. It's light, flexible, easy to dump the dirt and relatively easy to remove, clean and replace the beater bar when it gets full of hair and threads and such.
We did have a series of frustrations for a time when the thing was acting up and was very temperamental. Dyson sent us replacement parts 3 times and after replacing the culprit batter pack, we're back in business. The customer service was efficient, both on the phone and on-line. Frustrating to go through the same series of questions each time I called back with the bad news that things were not yet working right, but fully within what I would expect from a Customer Service department protocol. All's well that ended well!
If your spaces are smallish or you need quick and easy touch up cleaning of carpet or hard flooring, this is an excellent little "Hoover."
This wonderful little puppy is NOT intended to replace your full-size vacuum. A full charge lasts about 15 minutes BUT it weighs almost nothing and goes anywhere. And that's what it does for us. Great for spot cleaning where the kids and dog were playing. Magical on stairs. There are dozens of jobs where you don't want to lug around the big guy then unwind and rewind 30-ft of cord.
Today I noticed that the roller bar had become wrapped with hair and gunk. Slip a quarter in the Unlock slot on the side - out pops the entire roller bar - cleaned and reinstalled in minutes.I appreciate that kind of thoughtful engineering. Thanks Dyson!
I bought this item about a week or so ago and I absolutely love it. I use it everyday. It has more suction than other handhelds I've used. I've seen people's complaints about how long the battery lasts, but if your using it to vacuum your entire house it's a waste. We have wood floors so ill sweep first and then use the vacuum to get EVERYTHING that I swept up. I ordered the wall mount for it from Dyson since i don't like plugging it in and leaving it sitting around. we have s curious 2 year old.I think Dyson makes great products and I would definitely recommend this.
Lightweight and powerful
Makes it easier to keep my house clean bc it is so handy
Suction significantly better than other handhelds
Value got a 4 since it's 5-10 times the price of other handhelds
This is a keeper and makes others look disposable
