What customers say about "Key Specs"
Dyson Ball Multi Floor Upright Vacuum
  • Bagless, washable filters, easy to maneuver, lightweight, sturdy & decent attachments/accessories.
  • Suction is great, it'll pull dirt into it that I see next to it on the wood floor.
  • Powerful vacuum when it's free of clogs and has clean filters
  • This is fantastic for normal vacuuming on flat surfaces. I’m always amazed at the amount of dirt and animal hair it picks up.
  • Bagless- you can see all the dirt and dust you pick up
  • The ball and wheels are large so it is hard to get under furniture like coaches and beds.
Dyson Ball Animal Upright Vacuum
  • Easily maneuverable. Easy to empty
  • It does have good suction and it's easy to clean out the canister.
  • I like the Dyson Ball vacuum no bag system and you don't have to clean the filters every time the unit is used.
  • All the canister parts, including Hepa filter, are washable so when things start to get too clogged with dust, just rinse under the faucet, dry it all off, and off you go.
  • This vacuum clogs incessantly. When you pull it apart to clean the filters, it is very noticeable why clogs happen so readily.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Dyson Ball Multi Floor Upright Vacuum
  • Easy to maneuver. Easy to assemble
  • Too heavy for my mother. (She is 60 as of now)
  • Heavier than I expected
  • This sucker feels like a workout, hard to push, hard on wrists with the twisting ball
Dyson Ball Animal Upright Vacuum
  • The ball design does seem to make it fairly easy to move around
  • It's easy to empty the dirt out of this vacuum, it is light weight, moves from carpet to tile floors easily.
  • I wouldn't say it's light weight but its not difficult to move around even if you want to lift it rather than push it.
  • It feels like cheap plastic. In fact, the casing around "the ball" cracked randomly one day, without being banged into anything, so it actually is cheap plastic.
  • The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because of the weight of the unit.

What customers say about "Features"
Dyson Ball Multi Floor Upright Vacuum
  • Pretty flexible with you try to get those corners.
  • Self adjusting height (goes from wood floors to different carpet heights)
  • Small form floor brush allows it to go under couches and chairs with ease, and gets along the walls very well.
  • Easy to empty canister with the push of a button
  • Extension hose (when extending) is pretty stiff. Might be a design thing in order for it to retract properly. But it works great.
  • The hose is really awkward to use and get back in place
Dyson Ball Animal Upright Vacuum
  • Wand and attachments work great
  • Waste bin is easy to empty and clean, so are the filters
  • This vacuum seems much easier to push and the tilt feature works with the wrist rather than a foot pedal, which is much easier for me.
  • No on board storage for attachments
  • Removing the hose and placing it back in are not that intuitive and it takes me longer to do this (perhaps I'll get more use to it).

What customers say about "Power"
Dyson Ball Multi Floor Upright Vacuum
  • Love the long cord
  • The cord is easy to handle and the right length - it gives you plenty of length to vac the whole kitchen or LR w/o replugging into an outlet.
  • The power cord just flat out sucks. No automatic cord retractor ends up being SUPER annoying on this machine because the cord does not have any texture to the casing, so it gets tangled very easily and gets hard twists often.
  • The cord is not retractable, so it is every where on the floor when vacuuming
Dyson Ball Animal Upright Vacuum
  • The power cord is long and comes with a better little clip for keeping it attached to the cord once you wrap it all up.
  • The suction power is beyond amazing it gets up so much gunk!
  • The suction power on this thing is insane! I have wood floor in my hallway and in my kitchen, transitioning over between carpet to hardwood required zero effort at all and the vacuum self adjusted to the height of the wood floor.
  • The cord seems like an afterthought. The hook for it towards the top of the handle spins around on its own. So, I inevitably end up with the ENTIRE cord unwound and at my feet when I'm vacuuming.
  • The power cord does not retract into the unit. Instead, you need to wrap it around the hooks supplied at the rear of the handle.
