I purchased the Cinetic Big Ball Animal about a month and a half ago as a replacement for my DC-14 that I purchased in 2006. I constantly raved about the DC-14 and it's still going strong, but I wanted a second vacuum for another level in my home. I was still expecting to absolutely love the Big Ball Animal despite the not-so-stellar reviews I had read. I thought maybe the reviewers had simply not owned a Dyson before, given some of their issues. I thought the assembly of the machine was qucik and easy. The power of the machine is what you have come to expect from Dyson. The weight of the machine is a bit much for 63 year old woman, but ok so far. Now for the features that have me scratching my head a bit as far as design/ergonomics... First, the collection bin is smaller than on my DC-14. I have five cats in my home and the smaller circumference of the new model makes the bin fill faster over the same area I used to vacuum with my DC-14. If I vacuum the same area as with my old machine, I definitely have to physically pull the debris from the bin and sometimes detach the the bin from the handled top in order to remove the debris. Inside the bin there are plastic protrusions (for stability?) that catch the cat hair and, it seems, prevents the debris from just falling out of the bin. I could try to empty more often and see if that helps the debris fall out on its own, but it seems a step backward in convenience. Not sure why the bin had to be smaller on this model, but I'm not an engineer. Second, the machine is a bit heavy to maneuver easily. I thought the Big Ball was going to help, but I find I'm torquing my wrist in odd ways trying to get the machine to go where I want it to. Maybe I don't have the hang of it yet or maybe it's the weight of the machine and a stronger person wouldn't have an issue. For me, the action of vacuuming is somewhat awkward and uncontrolled. I admit to having a carpal tunnel issue in my right wrist, so perhaps that contributes. Third, I don't really have the issue with getting the machine to stand upright that others have complained about. However, it is not easy to roll the machine on the two back wheels without the brush part of the base falling into place as if you were vacuuming. The rollers seem too small for the job somehow, or the latching mechanism not sufficient. I've oftentimes ended up just carrying the machine back to its closet which is not ideal. Fourth, not sure if you're like me, but I usually grab the cord of the machine in my left hand while vacuuming to keep the cord out of the way. It's a minor complaint, but the cord is so far down the shaft, it is not easily reached. Perhaps I shouldn't complain about the extra "exercise," but I am looking for a way to keep the cord attached at the top hook for cord storage. I'm hopeful my issues with the Cinetic Big Ball Animal will fade over time as I adjust to its features. I certainly have no issues with its cleaning power. That's awesome. However, right now, I do feel it takes me longer to do the job than it did previously, and is a bit tougher to accomplish, physically. I am very brand loyal and I didn't even consider another brand when buying this new vacuum, just trusting that Dyson continued its reputation for innovation and convenience. I wish I could say I am not disappointed, but I can't. There's more points to consider in purchasing a machine than just its suction power. Maybe in a few more months, my issues will be moot points. Her's hoping.

The good: -Long cord that lessened the amount of times I had to replug to closer outlet -Automatic adjustment to different surfaces -Ability to turn off roller function Various tools The bad: -While it did well at picking up pet hair it performed rather poorly at other pet messes such as toy stuffing -I have mostly hard wood floors but when operating on the few very low pile rugs the rollers stopped working several times. -While it was nice to have easy access to the wand: a) not all of the tools have housing on the unit. This doesn't seem to big of a deal to most but to me it is. I don't like having to stop what I'm doing to go hunt something down. b) the hose which connects to the wand made using it awkward. Had to give several hard yanks at it each time I wished to use it. I was really excitied about this purchase and maybe it just needs some "run in" time but so far I can't say that it was worth the price or the hype

Cleans well

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

I upgraded to this from an older Dyson that failed, but was still covered under the 5 year warranty. This vacuum is far easier to move and turn. It does a nice job riding walls for tight vacuuming. It does tend to grab loose carpeting more than the old unit probably because the brush and suction are better. My biggest knock is the release mechanism design. You tip the unit back slightly and push down on the handle to vacuum, its very efficient. The issue is that it is virtually impossible to roll the unit forward to another location without disengaging the upright locking mechanism. I'm surprised Dyson did not put a secondary locking device on it. That is the reason I could not give it 5 stars

Strong vacuum

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

I bought this vacuum a few weeks ago and I am more than pleased with my purchase. I had another brand vacuume that claimed that it was better than a Dyson .....just not true! I have two long haired dogs that I love �� but create a lot of work Due to shedding . I vacuume everyday but the other vacuum just could not pick up all the strands of hair from my living room carpet. The day I received my Dyson I revacumed my carpet and the Dyson picked up so much dust and hair that I did not even realize that was still there! Love �� my Dyson! Tina

Best vacuum ever. 2 large flurry dogs and 6 cats can't kill it. Our old vacuum, supposedly a pet fur specialty vacation can't touch it for getting dirt and fur up out of the carpet.
