Tried out my new Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal + Allergy today. OMG! I love it. First I vacuumed my living room with my old vacuum. I know it picks up stuff because obviously the bag gets full (but I can vacuum the house twice before it's full and have to change the bag). Then I used my new Dyson.
This is from my living room after already vacuuming it with my old vacuum! Yikes. I did the rest of the house. Had to empty it several times, but it's easy to do. And second best of all is that it is sooo much easier to push/pull then my old vacuum. With my bad back, when I was done vacuuming the house my back always hurt and I'd have to rest it a good half hour or so to get the pain to stop. My back doesn't hurt one bit right now. I am really, really happy with this purchase.
