What customers say about "Key Specs"
Dyson DC41 Multifloor Bagless Silver Ball Vacuum Cleaner
  • Very strongest suction ever. use less time on vacuum now. but the issues are the cord and remove the dirt due to bagless filter.
  • Many plusses to this product. I enjoy the fact that you can empty the dirt ben so easily. It is very easy to us and has really good pickup. The attachment are on board and easy to access. The filters are also easy to clean.
  • This vacuum has more suction than any vacuum I have ever used and it is very easy to maneuver on my hardwood floors. The attachments are cleverly designed and very easy to use and stow away.
  • So glad I bought this. I've been tired of buying the cheap vacuums that don't pick anything up. Spend a little more for a Dyson. It's worth it in the long run. The suction is awesome. Get this vacuum!
  • This vacuum does an amazing job on any floor surface and picks up hair and dirt. Easy to clean out as well!
Dyson DC50 Multi Floor Compact Upright Vacuum Cleaner
  • I love this vacuum cleaner. It's by far the best vacuum cleaner.
  • This small ball Dyson vacuum is the best. Its lightweight and powerful for a small vacuum. It gets the job done both on my hardwood and carpet floors.
  • We love how well this vacuum works, but a piece of plastic broke off easily when we purchased it which was a bummer. Even super glue wouldn't hold it back together
  • I going to have to admit that the Dyson vacuum are a bit overpriced. However, it really is the best vacuum I have ever owned. The engineering is really innovative and everything works really well.
  • This is a great vacuum with the agility and light weight needed for vacuuming the stairs and hard to reach areas.

What customers say about "Features"
Dyson DC41 Multifloor Bagless Silver Ball Vacuum Cleaner
  • Purchase to replace an older vacuum. No height adjustment with Dyson is a nice feature. This model utilizes two washable air filters. Currently seems to work well.
  • I love the technology this vaccume cleaner has. However sometimes I wonder how I clean up stairs because it's heavy to do so.
  • This vacuum is the best,and the technology for make are wok easy, thanks I love this.
  • Turning in tight spots is a bit challenging even with the ball technology.
  • I'm not too crazy about the ball vs previous technology, I don't think it's as easy to maneuver ,but I stand by and recommend it the less
Dyson DC50 Multi Floor Compact Upright Vacuum Cleaner
  • The price is on the expensive side, but with the technology that went into building this I think it is well worth it.
  • The tools are cumbersome to use as you need to take the handle completely off turn it over and pull out the extension hose. Need an easier system for that
  • Has the hose and the accessories withi it for the tight spots
  • It has some nice tools with an extension hose that works well. I love the lightweight of this model.
  • Also, the wand tool took some work (i.e., an hour of searching the internet to finally learn). You take the wand tool (the part that pulls out or extends) out of the hose, flip it upside down, click the handle part into the hose.

What customers say about "Power"
Dyson DC41 Multifloor Bagless Silver Ball Vacuum Cleaner
  • The long cord allows me to reach almost the entire house
  • I can do pretty much my entire downstairs out of one outlet which is awesome but the cord is cumbersome. Still amazing product though!
  • Great vacuum but the only thing I don't like is the cord. The cord always seems to get in the way. Otherwise it's a great product
  • Wish that it had a retractable cord though.
  • Easy to assemble,very good suction, extension cord could be longer.
Dyson DC50 Multi Floor Compact Upright Vacuum Cleaner
  • Great vacuum, strong suction, nice long cord.. Only complaint is there’s no foot release, so the slightest bump will drop the brush when trying to wheel it around
  • The power cord is long enough to get the cleaner to the bottom of the stairs and the machine itself is small and light enough to either carry on the stairs or perch on a stair.
  • The wand can only be used with the power cord completely uncoiled.
  • Only problem is the cord - it is a little long and easily tangled. Small price to pay for a great vacuum, though.
