    It's ok. Good on tiles and good on one of my rugs but one of the other rugs I have its so ineffective it give me the sh*ts.
    I also don't like the fact that it only is effective on the forward stroke, when you are pulling it back it does nothing.

    I have the Dyson animal too. Upon purchasing I was disappointed as I was hoping it would become my only vacuum. But it doesn't do nearly as good of a job as my Miele plug in. However, over the last 2 years it's still used from quick car clean, quick clean up after meals and in between big vacuums. I think it's the best stick vacuum on the market but doesn't take over a plug in. It has its place and I couldn't live without it now ... although I paid a hefty $450 I would have to replace it shall it die as it is such a convenient tool for me to have. 😊

    I have a Dyson stick as well and I love it. In fact I haven't used our big Dyson since we got it as its so much lighter and easier to manoeuvre. I've found mine to do a really good job on pretty much all surfaces. We have a cat that drops hair everywhere and the pet hair attachment works a treat.

    The only (slightly) painful things about it is that I need to empty it halfway through vacuuming as the barrel is small and fills up quickly, and sometimes if I'm doing a lot of vacuuming, like I need to spend a lot of time vacuuming the couch because my cat decided that was his favourite spot that week and left hair everywhere, I can't get everything done on one charge. But generally I can do all my floors on one charge.

    I've got a Dyson ( I don't know the model, it is purple and silver). It was the first expensive vacuum I purchased (usually got $90 cheapies) and honestly it is crap. We have all polished floors and its fine for dust, but anything remotely chunky it does not suck up, dried peas, a bit of onion skin, a bead etc etc. I always end up picking stuff up off the floor and putting it in my pocket as I go around.

    Maybe my expectations are too high but for $400 I should not have to bend down and pick up a pea from the floor.

    I have a DC45 and I love it. I'm not that fanatical about cleaning but I find it great for quick clean ups when I don't want to lug out the plug in Dyson. I wouldn't recommend as the only vac but as a convenient extra it's great.
