We have a Dyson that seems to be losing its suction after about five years. We still thought it was doing a very good job until we tried this Dirt Devil.
Background: Dirt Devil, truthfully, doesn't sound like a powerhouse of a vacuum. I've always had that impression. Like Bissell.
Test: So to fully test it, we ran the Dyson once over the most highly dog-trafficked area: My side of the bed. They sleep there, they hide there and they shed a lot. In a 7' x 10' area with the first pass of the Dirt Devil (after we already ran the Dyson there), the container was full. And there were bright shiny streaks on the carpet like it had been professionally fluffed and cleaned.
I'm very happy with this Dirt Devil and I sincerely hope it doesn't lose the suction the way my Dyson has over the years.
