Delightful Product
The cons are that the beater bar is maybe 2/3 or 1/2 the length of an upright's, so it takes longer to vacuum, and the canister really is small. The canister is rated at 2 cups, but it only takes less than a cup of dirt. You don't want so much dirt collecting that you need a stick to clean out the canister because the fuzz is stuck in there.

The pros are ease of use & maneuverability, GREAT CLEANING, and washable filters. I was surprised that I had to rinse out the filters "every month." But after filling the canister 4x, I checked the filters and they were hardly dirty and didn't need cleaning. So I think I will go every 3 months before cleaning the filters.

I bought this Dyson for the allergy rating and because I needed a vacuum that would reach under my queen size bed with only a 4 1/2" clearance. This product height at the ball is only 3 1/4 inches.

5-year warranty.

Great product and I'm very happy!GreenThumbSDs

I have two dogs that are medium and long haired. I have "killed" a few vacuums over the years due to all of the dog hair. This one has been great! It's easy to put together and very easy and comfortable to use. When I first received it I intended to try it out on just the living room, but I ended up vacuuming the entire house and my car. I love it! I really like the washable filter feature since those are the objects that get clogged so often.TwoDumbDogs
LOVE this vacuum...BUT
I really love this vacuum and it did an amazing job getting up the dog hair that had taken up seemingly permanent residence in my old carpet. It is super lightweight and has amazing suction. I thought I would be disappointed that the head was smaller and would take what seemed twice as many strokes to vacuum but instead it was way better than my old one. Because it was smaller I could get into more cracks and crevices. plus it was so light it did not matter that I had to go over more times.

Two small things though - I am a little taller (5ft 8in) and I have to stoop a little because the handle on the brush head is just a little too short. Not a big deal because my house is not too big but if I had a lot of space to do I would get tired. Second for all you pay, they couldn't put a light on the brush head? Now I can get into all of these places that I couldn't before because of the awesome design, but I can't see if I am about to suck up something really bad.NCBree
My lil sugar
I named my little dyson Sugar, since suga means suck in Swedish and I thought the name appropriate since these smaller canister vacuums are so cute! But don't let the looks fool you, this lil thing is a beast.

I bought my DC47 recently but haven't used it at home yet since I just moved, however I did take it to work and cleaned my office which I don't think has been vacuumed for years. I think I could taxidermy a small animal out of the amount of hair it pulled and we're talking about only a cubicle sized office. I'm so impressed with the weight, how easy I can get to every little nook and cranny by the way the nozzle rotates. There were some long hairs that did get tangled up in the nozzle but since I'm easily able to remove it, it took but a minute to get it clean again. It's really quiet too and just overall makes me want to use it more often. I don't see vacuuming so much a burden anymore! Highly recommend this model if you hate upright vacuums like me, got a small place, and have tight spots you need to get to.redsawdust
DC47 Animal
I like this so much better than my upright Dysons, which have many faults. This DC 47 is lightweight--which I wanted for stairs, furniture, etc. It is smaller than I anticipated but still has good suction. It is great for stairs. The upright is awful for stairs. DC47 cord is much too short but I realize it needs to retract into that little machine. The cord is flexible--the upright cord is a nightmare. The upright is stiff, cannot straighten where it bends when put back on machine and is the most annoying part. Also, the hose on the upright is so stiff that it will not expand more than a foot or so. The DC 47 cord is short but great. My daughter has the DC3? Animal and loves it. I used it at her house and decided to buy the DC47 even though I said I would never again buy a Dyson. So, I have only had this machine for a month, but so far I like it and it does remove cat hair along with dirt and dust from most every surface.Julescat
