Rated 5 out of 5 by gasawaye Dysons are worth it!
I've had a Dyson for quite a while now, and I believe that they're worth every penny. They are beautifully designed, and more durable than you might think to look at them. Replacement parts are also available, so you can keep them for years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jawalsh75 Disappointed
I have owned three Dyson's and this one will be my forth. I upgraded to this vacuum because of the excellent reviews and I just had new carpet installed. Well, I wish I didn't sell my old one because I HATE this vacuum. First the design, it's all plastic. I'm thinking for $500 how is it going to last? Then there is function. It's like pushing a tank. Awkward, it doesn't move well I have to pick it up to physically move it. Then there is the lovely squeaking noise from the plastic rollers. It does pick up well, but my back will never be the same. Save your money, and find another vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JeanClaudeshopper Great product , fast delivery
We have 6 animals in the house and all the associated hair, dander, and feathers. The Dyson picks up all of this plus the dirt and dust from our normal activities. We have to empty the canister twice per cleaning session but that is a minor inconvenience. We hope that it lasts a long time; we'll see.
We received the product within 5 days of ordering it, Thanks JCP.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pokey This product far exceeds the description of its cleaning abilities!
I thought my house was fairly clean. Vacuumed with the Dyson and the finest dirt and silt and dog hair was captured and easily disposed of. Was amazed at what had accumulated using another brand name of cleaner. Would not trade it for machine costing much more money as I cannot imagine it doing a better job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Serendipityma Collapsible and easy storage!!
I've been using my DC50 for several months now, and I LOVE IT!!!! I have a small(ish) house with limited storage, mostly laminate floors, but a few rugs, and carpet in one of the bedrooms.
Being that this is a small capacity vacuum, and I've got a total of 5 critters that think shedding is a sport, the bin fills up quickly, but it cleans like a boss!
Pros: Small, collapsible, and very easy to store, picks up mess easily on both hard floors and rugs/carpet, no kickback from the brush (particularly when vacuuming kitty litter scatter from rugs - the seal around the brush is excellent!), leaves carpet and rugs feeling soft and clean! When needed, it's easy to take bits apart to clean things.
Cons: Obviously, the bin fills quickly and must be emptied more frequently, the filter is small (and well hidden) so may need to be rinsed more often. Takes a couple of passes to pick up carpet cleaning/deodorizing powder completely.
I still have my original Dyson (it's 10+ years old and still going strong, but rather bulky), and I've never had any vacuum other than a Dyson, so I can't really compare it to any other brand, but I can't imagine that I'll ever buy any other brand!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DonnyMac Well Designed Appliance
Our Dyson DC50 works very well. It is light, is easy to maneuver and carry and has very powerful suction. It's nice that there is a separate switch for the rotating bush in the floor nozzle. The brush even stops rotating if you pick it up to avoid an obstacle.
The only downside to this model it that is is a bit difficult to vacuum long stairways with the crevice attachment. The hose and attachment are not long enough to reach from either stair landing past 4 or 5 steps. so you must carry the unit with you. This can be awkward.
It is also a bit tedious to have to keep pulling the handle up and removing the inside tube to use the attachments. It would be nice if there was a quicker way to hook up the attachments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimmy70 Best vacuum cleaner
This is by far the best vacuum cleaner I've yet to use. I live in a home with two dogs who both shed lots of hair. This machine handles the hair with ease, both on carpeting and wood floors. The hand held accessories are perfect for furniture and small areas. Don't be fooled by the size. This machine has more power than other larger models and makes I've owned. I've tried the competitors in the past and have found the this vacuum is built much better and it's functioning is superior. It's worth a few extra dollars for this type of quality. I've had no issues with this machine. Simple maintenance is all that's required. I will definitely always own a Dyson. Thanks for making a quality machine at an affordable price.
