Excerpt: Overall a great vacuum. Canister was a bit smaller than expected. We have a small apartment but still needs to be emptied during the weekly cleaning. The tool wand is great for over head reachs but when you need to do corners or lower sections of baseboard the wand is awkward due to how short the hose is.
Excerpt: I must admit this is our second Dyson and I am disappointed with this model. It vacuums okay -- but you need to roll over things a couple of times in some cases for the vacuum to pick them up. Also the attachments are fairly useless and the detachable hose is too short. I will use this for small jobs but will revert back to my original Dyson model (DC 14) for most of my vacuuming.
Excerpt: I was amazed at the results and the amount of material it collected. I felt the hose with the attachments was a bit hard to handle and would twist and pull back into the unit. Unfortunately the DC50 can not go under low tables or furniture, like beds.
Excerpt: We are very happy with our new Dyson 50 Animal. We have three dogs and the amount of hair it extracts from our carpets is amazing. It also cleans our hardwood floors and keeps them looking great. We had been wanting anew vacuum for quite a while and we're glad we decided to get a Dyson.
