"It is Amazing!"5.0 starson by shanalynn79
Pros: Ease of Use, Suction... everything?
Cons: My husband isn't a fan of it being purple but I like the color
Summary: I'll keep this short. We had a shark vacuum (not a shark vac)... rather large and very heavy (over 40 lbs). My husband loved it and thought it was great. Finally, after 2 years of waiting the DC25 Animal went onsale for black Friday and I made my move "we are getting the vacuum or you can vacuum". We got the vacuum. Now, I used the old vacuum Wednesday evening... it got up stuff and the floors looked ok to the eye. I brought home the new Dyson ball on Friday morning (just 1.5 days later). Took it out of the box, put it together, and used it. In our very small living room you would have thought I had not vacuumed in the last year. The canister filled just from that room... filled with disgusting thick dust (it looked like volcanic ash it was so thick). Same thing with our bedroom which is only 13x13. The old vacuum was leaving all of that behind for us to breath in. This vacuum is amazing. It gets up more dust than I even could have imaged was in the carpeting... and it does it so easy. The ball makes it super easy. It's also not a very heavy vacuum at only about 16 lbs. Very easy to lift to put it away. I could not recommend this vacuum more!
