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 (206031-01):

This is my 4th Dyson animal, and it is my favorite. My only complaint is when vacuuming throw rugs it is too powerful and the only choice is to turn off the beater bar and then I don't have enough sucking power to get it clean.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

This is my 2nd Dyson. I am just as happy with this one as I was with my first. I need 2 vacuums for home and camper. The newest has better suction and is quieter. I like the idea of no filters. I read in one review that it did not hold as much dirt and hair. I find it holds more. Much more. Also not mentioned in any review is the length of the cord. I am not sure how much is added but I do know it goes a lot farther than the older Dyson. I really like this vacuum.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I bought this vacuum 2 months ago. I wanted to use it awhile before I wrote a review. Love the suction; this thing gets out a lot of dirt! My cat who is currently shedding is no match for the pick up of this vacuum. Who thought of the power hand tool ,,, Thank You! I both love and dislike the hose. It is hard to manipulate around to clean, but hose is very long and very easy to put away. So this issue is a wash for me. This vacuum is hard to maneuver on thick rugs yet also turns on a dime however this takes awhile to master. I love the brush off switch which makes cleaning hardwood floors a snap. Additionally I like how attachments snap on and off.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I have had this vacuum over a year and I love using it now just as much as I did the first day I bought it! I have a 1 year old Boxer and it picks up all his hair, you wouldn't know had a dog by looking at my carpet or furniture. I recommend Dyson products to everyone, after using mine a couple times my mom had to go get one as well.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I bought this model December 2016 because the handle on my DC15 broke after 10 years. I loved my DC15 Ball. I would never own another vacuum other than Dyson! I even have a smaller ball version at my cabin. I got this model for the larger vacuum head and ball. I was mistaken. This model is very hard to maneuver and the suction isn't as strong. I would have taken it back but I thought it was me and wanted to give it a chance. I should have gone by my first instinct and returned it. I really feel let down by Dyson with this model.

I have used my new machine for a week and am absolutely amazed at the amount of "invisible" dirt that it has cleaned up. The Dyson moves like a sports car, is quiet, and cleaning the bin is easy. . The attachments are a cinch to use. Cleaning the floors might be my new favorite thing!

it works good when its brand new and then it starts to not suck anything up. As son as it does this we just take it back to the sore and get a new one. It usually start acting up about 2-4 months after we get a brand new one.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I LOVE this vacuum! I bought it a couple months ago because I have dogs and my boyfriend is allergic to their hair & dander. This machine is so easy to disassemble and clean. I use my vacuum 3-5 times per week and the canister is at least half full every time. The filter is incredible. I thought we would have to get air filters for every room, but this vacuum has really eliminated his sensitivity to the dogs.

I have owned several Dyson vacuums over the years and used one for my personal use and the other for my housekeeping business. However this is my favorite Dyson so far! It works better than any I have ever had. Hope this one last 11 years like my first one did! It is a little harder to push but the suction power makes up for that.

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

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

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

Excellent Suction!

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

We purchased our Dyson a couple weeks ago (my first Dyson), and I couldn't be happier. It has fantastic suction. We even gave it "the test" by vacuuming our sun room, which seems to always be covered with dog hair and has thus turned into more of a mud room because we could never get the black carpet free of dog hair. This vacuum sucked up EVERYTHING! I love it. We've tried at least two different vacuums in this room before this, and it always looked like we never actually did anything when we were done. This is the first to grab everything. I find myself vacuuming more often than needed just because I like just how well it actually works. Very easy to empty. I am not disappointed at all. Great buy!

My First Dyson Gets an A-

By GinaJ

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

I requested my Dyson Animal for Christmas and got it! I had gone through 2 other animal vacuum cleaners by another company, so I was looking for a quality product that I won't have to replace every year. I began using my Dyson Animal on Christmas Day and was super pleased with the performance! The suction is fantastic (it made me look like I had not vacuumed in years). It glides easily and I love the rolling ball. I use my Dyson every day (I have a Labrador that sheds a lot) and I love my Dyson! I love that it fluffs up my carpets, making them look new! (I had been using a carpet rake to fluff my carpets after vacuuming with my other machine, and I have not had to rake the carpets since Christmas Day when I received my Dyson)! My husband tells me, "You love that vacuum cleaner"! Now to what pains me about my Dyson Animal: 1. It is heavy, so taking it up and down my stairs is difficult. 2. Vacuuming stairs with the attachment is not easy, even with the hose extension. 3. The canister fills up VERY quickly, requiring me to stop every few minutes to empty it. 4. The canister does not completely empty on its own, so I still have to reach in to pull dog hair out = meaning this is not hands-free emptying. 5. My roller keeps getting clogged with dog hair and carpet fibers, which reduces the brush spinning action. 6. Turning the brush feature off has not done a good job of vacuuming runners/rugs. It still sucks them up and I have to turn the vacuum off. Overall, this is a fantastic vacuum cleaner. I give it an A-, due to the 6 pains about this product. Fix those and I'd give this an A+!

Best Dyson yet!

Comments about Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Upright Vacuum (206031-01):

This baby is powerful. I was skeptical at first. I previously owned the dc25 animal ball and if you compare the two it appears that the dc25 would have more suction capabilities, but that is not the case this machine is much more powerful and better constructed! The new technology works different than than the old and because there are no filters there is no suction loss to account for. I use both machines and the cinetic out proforms the dc25 in every way! The front head is also designed better and does not catch as much hair in the beater bar. It has a firmer suction to the carpet than the dc25... bottom line if you are comparing any of the other machines to this one do not hesitate buy the cinetic big ball you won't be sorry!
