Advantages: great build quality, fantastic performance
Disadvantages: no ball may make it an issue for some
My Mom has her own cleaning company and I have been going on jobs with her for a minimum of 2 hours per week for about 7 years. Therefore, I have been able to test a variety of different vacuum cleaners and can make experienced comparisons between many different models. Out of all of the different models I have used, both Dyson and non-Dyson, this vacuum cleaner is one or the best and also one of the latest.
We bought this vacuum cleaner for our own personal use at home as the other vacuum cleaner we had was mainly used for work and therefore, when used at home the smells associated with those places tended to be wafted around the house. We now have a separate house vacuum cleaner and work vacuum cleaner.
We definitely saved the best vacuum cleaner for ourselves.
The build quality on Dyson vacuum cleaners is always excellent, but these seems even better than usual. It is so sturdy and has many small but handy features which makes using it so much easier. For example, to use the built-in hose, on many models you would have to press in a button to lift up the metal rod high into the air, then press the button again to release the entire hose - on this model you simply lift the rod and the entire hose comes along with it by automatically undoing a clasp and then redoing it for you as you pack it away. It comes with many other unique features like this which sets it apart from other models and other brands.
The performance is great, as it is the animal version of the model it is superb at picking up pet hair. Now we only have a cat, but it was amazing when we first used the vacuum cleaner around the house and found out just how much our old Dyson wasn't picking up from the carpet, most of it being cat hair. Even though we onyl vacuum cleaned a couple of days ago with the old one, vacuuming with the new one meant that we had to empty the collection tank twice to complete the clean!
Cleaning out all of the modern Dyson cleaners is quick and easy as the bagless container detached at the press of a button and empties by opening the base over a bin with a second press. There are also filters which have to be cleaned out every 6 months but have a lifetime guarantee on them so you will never have to buy a replacement!
The vacuum is very easy to maneuver despite not having Dyson's famous ball technology. We purposefully bought a non-ball vacuum cleaner as we do not see much point in the ball, it doesn't seem to make it any easier or harder to move a vacuum cleaner with one or without one in our opinions.
Overall, one of the best I have ever used!
Summary: I use many vacuum cleaners and this is amongst the best
