I love dyson, this vacuum is perfect for tile and wood flooring and area rugs. I use this for my bathroom and kitchen and I love it. It picks up the dirt with ease and I love the hanging charge station. I was skeptical due to lots of reviews saying the battery doesn't last long enough but I have never ran into that issue. I wouldn't recommend for rugs except small ones my dyson ball works better on thick carpet but when I do my sons area rug the v6 seems to work better leaves the rug in place. I definitely recommend buying this but having a dyson ball vacuum as well.
I purchased this to replace another brand stick vac that was slightly less than adequate. What a surprise to find this much power in a stick vac. I have a very messy parrot and I vacuum around his cage and perch several times a day. This is hard floors mostly but I run a quick vac on some of the carpet. The reason I say quick is because I keep it on max. I did read the run times and was okay with that. I realize this wasn't meant to do the entire house. I have a full size canister Dyson for that. Love this, glad I purchased. I recommended to a friend and she purchased one as well. She loves hers too.

I was so excited to get a cordless Dyson that was for pet hair. I read the reviews and took a chance. It has powerful suction on Max. Unfortunately if the surface is uneven the beater bar just stops. It lasts only 20 minutes or less as others say on max. While its great on suction for particles and hair, it does not do pieces. Such as cat food, pieces of paper or strands of thin cardboard. You will need to pick these up by hand. Medium to shag carpeting just makes it overheat and the beater bar to stop. Its just brushes. Nothing real substantial. I was hoping to be overwhelmed and currently the only parts i really like is the cordless feature and suction of hair on solid surfaces. I use my traditional vac on the mattress and ottoman and it works great going around the sides. This not so much. I am not real happy and considering exchanging for a shark to try. If you have flat surfaces, low pile carpet this is great. Furniture and more then dust particles :(

I recently received a DC59 through the Amazon Vine program. It is a wonderful engineering and technological feat. The modular design is very convenient and the various attachments and cordless format makes it versatile. It is quite powerful for a compact cordless vacuum and works well on many surfaces from rugs to bare floors. It is also very easy to empty and clean. Here are the reasons I don't give this 5 stars. I feel the DC59 is overpriced. Yes, it is a premium cordless vacuum. But it is still a cordless vacuum and would hopefully be more affordable. Also it is loud, does not stand up on it's own, has a small waste canister that needs frequent emptying, and the 20 minute charge isn't very long considering the time it requires to recharge. For a large house it may not be an ideal option. If expense is not a primary factor and you have a small space that does not need longer than 20 minutes to vacuum, then the flexible Dyson DC59 Animal might be perfect for all of your vacuuming needs.

Best vacuum on Earth, so easy to use and store, charges quickly and never any electrical cords to worry about. Our cordless Dyson is as powerful as any expensive corded upright we've ever owned. Now for the disappointing bad news. The vacuum does light duty as we have mostly tile floors with a few area rugs but after only 3 months the vacuum stopped working, no big deal right because its warranted right ? No Wrong ! No stores honor the warranty, even if you purchase the extended store warranty ! So one must go through a tedious process of creating an account here on the Dyson website and registering their specific product and then filing a warranty claim and waiting a long time for Dyson to send you a mailing box to ship the malfunctioning product back to them in, and then waiting forever for them to fix it and send it back to you. So even if this VERY EXPENSIVE vacuum breaks down the same day that you bought it you will be without a properly functioning vacuum for over a month !
