Smaller & more compact than I expected but clever design & sturdy. excellent suction & great for getting up dog hairs. Does a real good job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by flashfolly Good, but...
Good because it sucks very well in upright mode, but is not as powerful when using the wand ... a bit disappointing. Also, it seems very clunky and clicky at first to use (not good), but I've been using it now for 9 months and it's still seems in robust order, so perhaps it's stronger than it seems.
I think the manual is ridiculous!!! Confusing drawings and little explanation... could be a lot better.

Excellent machine. A little heavy to lug upstairs but the results are brilliant so I don't mind the twice weekly workout :)

I love my Dyson but the only problem is the brush attachment,I use it for dusting but it slips down from the tube and I find it scratches my furniture which is most off putting...the brush itself does not stay locked in place which is very annoying...I think it's a bad design fault,

I love my Dyson. It is quieter, more powerful, easier to handle and move around the home and has actually made vacuuming more pleasurable - which is a major achievement. I don't have to search about for attachments - everything I need for day-to-day cleaning is attached to the handle. My carpets look and feel cleaner, and there is a great deal of job satisfaction when emptying the dust cylinder.
The machine fits together so well and cleaning the filters is a simple task. The 'Reminder to clean your filters' email is an excellent idea.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sunnyjim DC40 Multifloor - Multidisappointment
The only good thing to say about this cleaner is that it sucks brilliantly, sometimes too brilliantly and there is no control over the amount of suck. We replaced our old DC04 with a DC40 Multifloor as the salesman said it was perfect for us, he was wrong. The hose is too short and only just reaches seven stairs high. When using the hose on the ground it pulls the cleaner too close or pulls it over. The power cord is also too short as well as being too stiff, I keep getting tangled up in it. For a smaller cleaner this one seem to be quite heavy. The power head is a good idea but quite often I have to release a speck on the carpet before the cleaner can cope. I also like the ball technologhy. Overall, I wish we had not been sold the DC40 Multifloor.

The second Animal Dyson in our household - I'll never get to drive an Aston Martin, but the Dyson quality finish and build come pretty close! We've downsized this time and have not been disappointed albeit the "bag" does need emptying more frequently, but that said the ease and manoeuvrability of this product is right up there.........keep on with the quality engineering.
