The Dyson DC50: Good, but not good enough

CNET
11 October 2013
  • Summary: You can buy a better-performing vacuum for far less money, making the Dyson DC50 a poor value.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: The DC50 didn't outperform other vacuums the way you'd expect it to for its price.

Dyson DC50 Animal Review

Vaccum Cleaner Advisor
10 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Dyson DC50 Animal is the latest upright in the Dyson stable. Consumer ratings are quite good to date, but bear in mind the vacuum has only been on the market in the US for a few short months.  The DC50 is compact compared with previous Animal uprights and this results in a very lightweight and maneuverable machine.  The vacuum also uses Dyson Ball Technology and includes several tools, such as the new tangle-free turbine tool.
  • Pros: Assembly is easy and quick, Lightweight, Many owners feel the “Ball” improves maneuverability, Reasonably good suction for its size, Dust canister is easy to empty, Compact and easy to store, Attachments generally work well, Good looking machine, Gets fairly good grades from owners for dealing with pet hair
  • Cons: Assembly is easy and quick, Lightweight, Many owners feel the “Ball” improves maneuverability, Reasonably good suction for its size, Dust canister is easy to empty, Compact and easy to store, Attachments generally work well, Good looking machine, Gets fairly good grades from owners for dealing with pet hair

  • Conclusion: 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 with its competitors. You just have to ask yourself, how much are you willing to pay for the ultimate in sucking strength? Only you have the answer.
  • Pros: Putting it to the test on a battleground recently invaded by a newborn, the first observations are just how light - 5.4kg - the Dyson DC50 is, and how the clever ball system allows for easy maneuvering into nooks and crannies. The majority of tech progression lies in the cleaning brush that has two types of bristles, nylon for your carpet and carbon-fibre, an innovation aimed at stopping the static on harding floors and making it easier to suck up dust. And it really ...
  • Cons: Because Dyson is packing so much into such a small package the only criticism is that for the price, it doesn’t feel expensive. In fact, it feels cheap. So much so that you're a little worried it could crack at any minute. For that sort of cash you expect a vacuum cleaner to feel a little more robust. Oh, and pro tip: be sure to clean the filters and the heads regularly, or else you will shorten its life span as well as lose valuable suction strength. Which makes the ...

Dyson DC50 review

Pocket Lint
30 November 2012
  • Conclusion: As with all Dyson vacuum cleaners, the Dyson DC50 is expensive - like £360 expensive. However it works, works well, and is compact and bijou at the same time. We cleaned a number of surfaces from original floorboards, carpets, fluffy rugs and slate tiles. Given that we had cleaned only a couple of days before with a previous Dyson model, we were surprised at how much extra dirt the DC50 picked up. If you like clean, this will get things clean.
  • Pros: Small, powerful, compact, light, gets spiders like no other
  • Cons: Hose attachment is long, making it hard to do close -up work, expensive
