Dyson DC40 Origin

 

The Dyson DC40 Origin is the least expensive model in the Dyson line of upright vacuums. It's a sleek-looking vacuum with all of the attributes you expect from a Dyson product such as the ball technology and bright coloring, a yellow-orange in the case...

The DC40 Origin is a good-looking vacuum that functions well, but it’s not a showstopper in terms of performance.

Fragile-feeling hardware makes it hard to feel confident in the DC40’s durability and staying power.

You could do a lot worse than the DC40; however, you could also do better and spend less.

Dyson DC40 Multi Floor

 

The DC40 has new technology, but performance isn't enough to warrant $500 price tag.

Almost perfect on hardwood; Good on debris pickup

Struggles on high pile; External tools aren’t great

Dyson DC40 Allergy

 

Whether you have allergies or just like a really, really clean floor, the Dyson DC40 will make sure every nook and cranny is pet-hair and dust-mite free.

Powerful suction ; Lots of attachments for a variety of surfaces ; Easy to figure out ; Space-age design ; Easy-to-find controls

Dyson DC40 ORIG

 

when it did work the suction was okay

it the assembled machine wasn't as structurally sound as I expected from Dyson ; suction hasn't worked for months and tech support is difficult to reach

Dyson is the BEST!!!

 

My friends own a Dyson, older model than this one. I have used theirs before and I loved it so much that I wanted my own. I love this vacuum and I know it will last me for years to come, unlike other vacuums that I've owned. As soon as I got it I...

After a month of use I still like the vacuum

 

I was somewhat apprehensive about buying an expensive vacuum but this Dyson seems to be worth the money. I like how easy it is to switch from having the brushes on or off when vacuuming carpets and wood floors. The telescoping hose is great and it...
