I love my dyson, just hate the vacuum head on it!! We have floorboards with just a couple of mats. If I do floorboard then change to carpet setting to do a mat it's fine, but if
I try to change it back to floorboards the suction stays TOO strong and scratches the boards.. I have to turn the machine off then back on to re set grrrrr.
It gets an amazing amount of dirt though! Must get the mattress head for it...

We have this one, its 5 years old & still works great. My only complaint is having to lug it upstairs (carpet) & downstairs (floorboards), but when you see how much is in the barrel even when you think the floors 'aren't that bad' it's worth it!

Yeah, I love our Dyson- for 2 reasons, it does such a great job of the carpet, and DH is the only one who uses it

I love my Dyson! It is almost 7 years old and still going strong. I only have a basic model as I was given it as a wedding present, but it does a great job of picking up fluff and dust from the carpet that you can't even see!

I love my Dyson. I have a 10 yr old barrel model with the Motörhead and floor tool. The floor tool is great for all kinds of floors! So much quicker than sweeping!

Yes! I'll never buy another brand again. I've had a Motörhead model for 5 years and recently got a handheld Animal. Both are fantastic.

See I am the same as you OP.
We have a miele cat dog vacuum and its great. But we're moving and there's stairs with carpet and a couple of carpeted bedrooms downstairs and a couple upstairs. I'm really wanting the stick dyson but DH would hit the roof!! The miele is only 6 months old and before that we had a Hoover stick thing that was useless so DH said no more stick vacuums. Really wish I could do it but I think I'll have to stick with my miele which really is very good.

We only have two carpeted bedrooms and a couple of rugs - we have the barrel, the mini sized one - still has a motor head and a hard floor head...plus we got the asthma kit free with it at the time of purchase which is great for mattresses, blinds etc.
we've given ours a real beating - with house renos etc (really shouldn't have vacuumed some of the stuff we vacuumed) but is it still going strong and when it eventually dies we'll replace it with another Dyson.
The upright is best for homes with majority carpet and the barrel for a mix of hardfloors and carpets - well that's what the sales dude told us.

I have a Miele full vac which i have retired to the garage. A couple of months ago I got the stick dc44 Dyson when we moved into this house. It's only a 3 bed house, carpet in bedrooms, floor boards everywhere else but not alot of storage as we are a big family of 6 and the laundry is under the house. I use the Dyson stick vac every day. With the plug in vac I sometimes never got to do the vacuuming or it would lay around taking up space in between uses. The dyson is super easy to wiz over the floor, takes no plugging in or cords to drag around, and neatly can be stored in my bedroom. My husband was not fond because of the price tag but he loves it too now because of the utter convenience and it sucks as good as the full size vac. I can easily vacuum window seals, spider webs, the car etc. The kids love to use it and do their own rooms as it so easy. It was expensive ($450) but now that we have it we couldn't go back.

I recently agonised over spending that much on a vacuum.... I ended up with the stick dc44 animal.
Besy investment ever.
When I got it I hsd just vacuumed with my old one and went over the rug again and I hsd to empty it 3 times.
Its so easy to use and I seriously would be lost without it... even my dd and dh use it.
It was $470 at good guys and I haggled down to $420 bargain.
