Have a Dyson upright that is about 6 years old, so we were expecting very good to excellent results. We liked the HEPA filtration of our old vacuum, but when my wife questioned Dyson about this machine she got the run-around as it is apparently not a true HEPA filter (it can be washed with water which was odd). More than that, bare floor performance was awful. It would not even pick up a couple pieces of dry cat food. The pieces would just fall out of the machine when it was turned off. Wife complained that is was difficult to maneuver. Carpet performance was very good however. Animal attachment was sub-par. When trying to vacuum off our cat tree, hair just accumulated on the entrance to the tool and was not sucked in. Pretty much worthless for our use. Other attachments were flimsy and cheap (we like our older Dyson attachments better). Overall pretty disappointed and had to return it. Considering a Eureka to replace it (at less than half the price).
