Dyson DC14 All-Floors Cyclone Upright Vacuum Cleaner Review


The Dyson DC14 All-Floors comes with a motorized brushbar, the standard Dyson Root Cyclone technology (ensuring strong and continous suction) and a lifetime HEPA filter. Coupled with a 5-year warranty this makes for a decent vacuum cleaner and consumer...

Strong suction (like most Dysons)- Ergonomics are good- Dirt Container very easy to empty- Easy to maneuver - Long cord- HEPA filter

No retractable cord- Extendable hose is stiff and awkward to use- Pricey- Attachment quality and functionality only average

Consumers also comment that the DC14 is, in general, an improvement over the DC07 - being generally much more user friendly. However it does have a slightly shorter power cord and a smaller dirt container (there seems to be disagreement as to whether...

Absolutely the best in suction even when full of dirt

A bit bulky and awkward at first. No light options for dark

Grea vacuum, but big design flaw


1) This vacuum has AMAZING suction ; 2) The power cord is so long, I can vacuum almost my whole house without unplugging from the center room in the house ; 3) Cleaning out the collector bin is very convenient, and it is easy to operate

1) The handheld accessories use an accordion tube that is as springy as car shocks. The vacuum would have to be bolted to the floor to take advantage of all 17' of the tube ; 2) There's a clutch on the motor to prevent burning it out or breaking the...

Love this vacuum


The only problem with this vacuum, is the same problem with all vacuums, they are too loud. But we love this vacuum, we had have it over 3 years now, and the suction is the same as day one.

I used to swear by Oreck for years but this machine is far and away the better choice and the absolute best to be found on the market! I tried it out at a department store and then at a friend's who told me she's never seen anything like it and bought...

This Dyson has tremendously powerful suction and easy, one touch cleanup of the cartridge/filters

I can't think of any cons except to those who haven't tried it, except price

Best Vaccuum on the market!
