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

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

I live at the beach and mangroves of South FL with 2 cats and a dog. There is always dust because of the mangroves at my door, unusual amounts of dust everyday. I had the competition brand for years before, that was a mistake. The first day I used my Dyson on the area rug I was in shock how much brighter in color and cleaner the rug was after one use. Nothing cleans like this machine from animal hair, kitty litter and dust it's a beast my animal. I may give it away for the canister so I can do my stairs easier. I wish you could trade up on these! The only thing I would change is the way some of the dirt gets stuck when you dump it out at the hinge area, still worth it. Mine is two years old now still strong.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

We purchased this vacuum about 10 days ago. We love it! We just moved into a rented townhouse and we have a dog that sheds so we wanted a good vacuum to take care of his hair. The amount of dirt and debris that this vacuum picked up was amazing! We are so happy with it. I wish we would have bought it sooner!

Best vacum cleaner we ever owned

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner:

We just got this machine today. We have only used it once, but my wife simply loves it. We have a dog and a cat, both short haired animals, the reason for purchasing this model. We could not believe how easy it is to operate and maneuver. The vacuum this one replaced was another manufacture and it was also designed for a home with animals. After one use, the amount of hair and dirt that this machine picked up was unbelievable, and disturbing at the same time. Knowing how much dirt was being left behind by our previous vacuum left us feeling, well, kind of dirty. At first use we are very happy and pleased with our purchase. A little pricy but well worth it...
