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 Multi Floor Vacuum Cleaner

 

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

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

Heavy ; Hose is stiff and awkward ; Ball head can't get under low furniture

Whether it's an allergen-free environment or just a super-clean floor that you're seeking, the Dyson DC40 Allergy is a fiend of a machine that does a magnificent job of picking up dirt you never even knew you had.

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

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...

awesome...

 

This is the most amazing vacuum I ever owned. I was amazed at the dirt it picked up. I swept the day before I recieved it, and I got so excited I swept again, the amount of dirt that it picked up looked as if i'd not swept in a week or more. If you are...

Love this Vacuum...

 

I've had a Kirby for 20 years. The Dyson DC40 is soo much easier to use. It does not have quite the suction as my Kirby, but again, it is just soo much easier to use. The attachments make cleaning blinds, lamp shades, ceiling can lights, etc. a snap!...

Lovin' it!

 

Surprisingly slender and lightweight. I have used it nearly daily for the last month and love it. The maneuverability of the ball is awesome. It does take a bit to get used to its "kickstand." This vacuum sucks!
