We'll have a full review just as soon as it hit sthe streets!

Consumer review by: Reggie M. (

I love this vacuum cleaner.


This vacuum cleaner is wonderful. I've had it for almost 3 years and I'm still not sick of it. It is very, very powerful. There is nothing worse than dragging around a vacuum cleaner that doesn't pick things up, but this little baby really does know...

Useless… Minimal suction.


This Dyson has hopeless suction, would be quicker to pick up pieces by hand. I thought it was never supposed to lose suction, well this one did. Cord is far too short and hardly ever retracts fully. Have to go over carpet or floors several times to get...


Minimal suction, short cord, cord never retracts fully. Waste of money.

This is fantastic


Just got a Dyson D26. The reviewer who said there was no suction must have a dud. It picks up everything, even cat hair from the carpet. The cord is actually longer than my old vacuum, so don't know why people complain. Wish I'd got one years ago. Even...

Light, easy to manoeuvre, doesn't take up much room in the cupboard.

Consumer review by: Philly (



There are 4 adults living in our house, a 2 year old (who brings home half the sandpit from childcare) and 2 dogs. It takes 30min to do each bedroom floor, going over and over the same spot until its moderately clean, sometimes ill have to use a carpet...

Light weight and easy to empty

No suction! Doesn't work on carpet at all.

Consumer review by: happy cleaner71 (

perfect for me


I bought the dc 26 because of its small size. I like to "vacu dust" because of allergys.This cleaner is light enough to hold in one hand while dusting everything from micro venetian blinds to furniture shelves and even ornaments. Especially good for...

small size and amazing suctionnot

not sure why the hose is fixed to the right as it comes out from the machine. It seems to prevent the machine from following easily when being pulled along.

Consumer review by: Quanda (



Very good cleaning performance just like all Dysons - I've owned a few going back 7 years and they all still work. The DC26 is very light, compact and easy to use. To be honest, I haven't used any other vacuum cleaner since buying this one however, I...

Easy to use

Short cord, can be unstable

Consumer review by: crisp (

Doesn't live up to expectations


From my experience the Dyson DC 26 is a dud: stiff plastic hose and side hose mounting makes it hard to manoeuvre (it constantly topples over); similarly press the on/off switch and it lurches over; a short power cable means continually having to plug...

bagless design

expensive, poor design, hard to use

Great, but...


This model replaces both our upright DC25 and DC30 handheld. Gave it a quick run new from the box just now. It came with three other accessory heads in the packaging - swivel hard floor tool, combo tool, stair tool. Although the Dyson guide lists that...

Lightweight enough for the missus to carry while vacuuming.

Flimsy wand rest and floor tool. Blowy.

Consumer review by: moshi (



highly recommended, only need tiny space to store car, timber floorboards, carpet, tiles... this baby can handle any surface and so easy to move around. I like the fact that it is so small but has the same big suction as the bigger models. I didn't...

light, small, easy to move around, strong suction, fun to use

cord is too short, needs to plug and unplug a few times
