please don't buy it, it's a waste of money, my husband still moans at me for buying it, as I'm pregnant he does the hoovering. I'ts heavy, has soo many tacky bits you have to clean, one sponge bit you have to clean which we have recently discovered, you have to be an engineer to work out all the bits you have to clean. It was expensive, I would have made my life easier by just getting a simple hoover, that is easy to clean and lightweight. I wish I had not bought it, cause it was expensive... (read more)

If you can get the hose attachment out, the dyson machine attaches itself to your leg as you use the hose attachment. Have fought this machine as i use it and i would never recommend it to anyone. The only good thing? I havent bought it, I was using someone elses and it made my blood boil!!!!! (read more)

Purchased this machine less than four years ago, and the motor has burned out.
The cost of a new motor is £60 and PCB board is £40 +VAT, and labour so its not really worth repairing.
Would have expected the machine to have lasted longer.
However have no complaints regarding the function of the machine.
Have to decide on a replacement. (read more)

very disappointed, paid top dollar here in France 399euros 2yrs ago, compared to my DC01 its rubbish, I keep it for upstairs as my other is too heavy to lift upstairs. It won't even pick up a piece of cotton. I suffer from arthritis severely and was relying on this product to make life easier instead of more difficult.........shame. (read more)

I spend more time with a screwdriver than I do hoovering. To be honest you would need some qualifications in electrical repairs and a great deal of patience with this machine. Yes the ball helps you whizz around great! Then you spend another hour taking the bloody thing apart to clean and unblock often resulting in all the hoovered dust ending on the floor againn. I then get my old hoover out to hoover it up, A complete disgrace, I want my money back. (read more)

I am selling this monster by the name of DC15 The Ball All Floors at a cut rate and buying the Dyson canister. Also the hose is awful--not long enough by far, so that when you're trying to use a floor attachment you have to bend over, plus the fact that the hose is more like a sling shot! And the floor attachment, which I bought separately, is awful! (read more)

The coolest hoover ever - keeps carpets looking like new. My carpets are old and I find I don't even need to get them shampooed as the Dyson does such a fab job. Consistent suction - even after owning mine for a few years now I find the performance is just as good as the day I bought it. Absolutely worth every penny! It picks up every bit of cat hair - my cat has hair over one inch long - she is long haired and black and all my carpets are cream/off white. The cat hair is not a problem to me... (read more)

The Dyson DC15 "The Ball" seems pretty much to be a gimmick, it is heavy (very heavy), loud (very loud) when you use the front brush. I loved the "lifts the carpet from the floorboards" effect of the older Dyson models, but this doesn't quite match the performance. To get this thing around the house you'll need to be a weight lifter.
The machine is great from under the beds due to the design of the front brush. Overall there are better Dysons out there for much less money. (read more)

Have had 3 Dysons now, the latest being this one with the ball and one of the most expensive and I can say with confidence that Dyson has had the last of my money. Don't believe the hype about how a Dyson doesn't lose suction after about 6 weeks of sucking up the carpet. They suddenly die then you are stuck with a vacuum that won't even pick up paper until you bite the bullet and write off the latest one. Fell for it 3 times, no more. (read more)
