For cleaner expelled air, the unit comes with a washable lifetime HEPA filter that traps microscopic allergens such as pollen and bacteria. In fact, the air expelled from a Dyson has up to 150 times less bacteria and mold than the air you breathe, and all Dyson uprights are certified asthma friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. The unit's hygienic 1/3-gallon bin quickly empties without ever having to touch the dust--just press the button and dust empties from the bottom; the clear polycarbonate bin also allows for easily viewing the cleaning progress and gauging when it needs to be emptied. Other highlights include fingertip controls, a constant suction power of 220 air watts, a 24-3/5-foot cord, a maximum reach of 40-2/7 feet, and a lightweight design at only 16-1/8 pounds. On-board accessory tools include a combination tool and a stair tool attachment. The vacuum cleaner measures 12-1/5 by 15-2/5 by 42-2/5 inches and carries a five-year parts-and-labor warranty.

Some background- we are a family of 3, with 2 Shiba Inu's that are adorable but shed year round, -especially- in the summer. I don't mean there is a little hair here and there, I mean there is literally hair wafting through the air, it is EVERYWHERE, and it never lessens or ends despite hours of "furminating". Beyond that, we are not overly zealous when it comes to cleaning and tend to value our time together over time spent vacuuming/dusting. We also are not the kind of family that can throw around $400-$500 willy nilly. So if we're going to spend it, it better be worth it. That said, we had spent over $300 on vacuums over the last 3 years. Some were nice (Hoover Windtunnel), some were Walmart brands, etc. But all of them broke, -multiple- times, all of them clogged, and none of them were easy, or even began to help solve the hair problem. Recently, the latest model went to vacuum heaven, so my husband and I began a very long, tiring search into all the available brands and models and which would be best for us. Obviously, my biggest hesitation here was the money. The reviews for Dyson are generally good, but what I wanted to know was, is it such a good product that it's worth a downpayment on a car?Read more ›
Assembly was fairly easy, suppose to be 3 snaps with no tools. But I had a heck of a time getting it out of the box, and being not mechanically inclined I would have liked better instructions.
I have never reviewed a product before, but this vacuum cleaner has me so excited that I had to share it with someone. I really love this machine!
* Great suction in both the vacuum and the wand
* Lightweight and maneuverable
* No bags or filters to replace, and no belt to break. As an aside, I've noticed some people complain that the belt has broken. Either they're not sure what they're talking about, they're reviewing the wrong model, or they're lying.
* Decent set of tools
* Bin is really easy to empty
* 5 year warranty
A few negatives, which are minor:
* Bin is somewhat small; we have a fairly small house but still sometimes have to change the container in the middle of cleaning
* The wand is a bit awkward to detach
As I said before, I wish I had done a bit more research into Dyson's product line before buying this particular vacuum.
The regular Animal, the DC17, has several advantages over the regular Dyson, the DC14: It has a motorized brushbar, it has a mini turbine head attachment, a low reach floor tool attachment, and more "cyclones." I'm not sure how well the extra cyclones work, but Consumer Reports says the DC17 has much better suction than the DC14. Presumably, the extra cyclones have something to do with that.
The DC25 Animal (the vacuum I'm reviewing here) does not have any more "cyclones" than the regular DC25. In fact, I believe they both have fewer cyclones than the DC14. Again, I'm not sure how well the extra cyclones work, but Consumer Reports seems to like them. Furthermore, both the DC25 Animal and the regular DC25 have a motorized brushbar. Neither of them have the low floor attachment.Read more ›
