Dyson DC50 Animal

 

Editors' Note, October 17, 2013: Confusion between models prompted us to revisit this review. We have now factored the collapsible handle and added a point to the design sub rating. We also retested on hardwood with the brush roll engaged, as...

The Dyson DC50 Animal performs well on carpeted surfaces with most types of debris. The canister is easy to empty and the vacuum itself is simple to use.

The DC50 didn't outperform other vacuums the way you'd expect it to for its price.

You can buy a better-performing vacuum for far less money, making the Dyson DC50 a poor value.

Dyson DC50 review

 

Houses are getting smaller, our time is more precious, and yet we still have to do the vacuum cleaning. Something's wrong we agree, and it is something that Dyson wants to fix with two new vacuum cleaners; the DC50 and the DC47.

Small, powerful, compact, light, gets spiders like no other

Hose attachment is long, making it hard to do close -up work, expensive

As with all Dyson vacuum cleaners, the Dyson DC50 is expensive, like £360 expensive, however it works well and is compact and bijou at the same time.

Dyson's latest upright sweeps the floor with the competition.

Powerful cyclone suction ; Easy to manoeuvre ; Hygienic bagless cleaning

Expensive ; No handle release

Whilst the cord catching on furniture or falling under foot is an issue that affects all cabled cleaners, the cable storage arms on the Dyson DC50 Animal feel slightly too small for comfortable and swift storage of the 7.6m power provider. That said,...

The Dyson DC50 is the next evolution of the famous bagless DC01, shrinking two tiers of dirt guzzling cyclones into one compact package that can be easily stored away, without taking up too much of your precious living space. It's the vacuum cleaner...

For £360 you have to really want the best vacuum cleaner on the market. And, while the Dyson DC50 is the Roller of floor suckers, it does require a fair bit of care and attention. It’s a high maintenance piece of gadgetry but it simply wipes the floors...

Must have for pet owners

 

I love this. I needed a lightweight vacuum to use in my house that wasn't a pain in the but to get up and down the stairs with and would pick up the pet hair. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats at home, so hair pick up is a must for me and this does a wonderful...

Lightweight and picks up the pet hair

It took me a bit to learn how to detached and reattach the handle from the hose

Consumer review by:

This vacuum exceeded my expectations!

 

I would recommend this vacuum to anyone, even though I had bought this at a great discount, it would have been worth the retail price. The proof is the lack of dust that I find on my furniture and we have construction nearby, but yet the dust is...

I was amazed at just how much dirt my old vacuum left behind

Nothing that I can say negative about this product

Consumer review by:

Great vacuum and just the perfect size and weight

 

I had an older Dyson (only a few years older), but the pull out wand broke off of the extension. It was under warranty so I upgraded to a newer model that was a few pounds lighter and this vacuum also stores more compactly. The fact that it is lighter...

It stores compactly and it isn't too heavy

Can't think of any drawbacks

Love it

 

Best on the market! I have a dog and it does perfect picking up all the loose hair. I would recommend to anyone that i know

Consumer review by:

Great vacuum with superior performance

 

The vacuum is a great stand up vacuum that has strong suction and glides over all flooring types. The Dyson ball helps to navigate through turns and corners with ease and the smart sensing head knows what type of floor you are on. I would say that this...

It is very easy to navigate around a room

The handle house feature is a bit clunky

Consumer review by:

Great Vaccum, but pricey!

 

Over all I am very satisfied. Works a great canister vacuum. I use it every week for cleaning hard wood floors and some carpet areas. I has good suction to pick really tiny pieces of dirt but I does not have the power to pick big pieces like paper bits...

Picks microscopic dirt particles

Cannot pick big pieces of dirt
