Hi Joe here, and welcome to my Dyson Vacuum Reviews blog.
You’re about to read my unofficial and completely uncut Dyson vacuum review. You are going to find out which model I found best and exactly why.
But take note that this is a complete review site, so if you are only looking for a site to buy a Dyson vacuum at the best price just click on your favorite model in the “I Recommend” box on the right.
You probably wonder why I decided to write this blog. Well, when I first started thinking about buying a new vacuum cleaner I went online to find some good reviews. Problem was I couldn’t find any.
There were plenty of reviews but none of them were very current or any good. So I decided to create this review blog on Dyson vacuum cleaners to help people who find themselves in a similar position.
Just to be clear, I am going to cover both the positive and negative points. So if you have already decided to purchase a Dyson and don’t want to hear anything bad about them, then you might just want to leave now.
Dyson Vacuum Reviews Top Pick
The winner is the Dyson DC25 Upright Ball Vacuum. This model comes in both the All-Floors and Animal versions. The Animal version is aimed at people who have problems with pet hair. It is slightly more expensive because it includes an additional mini turbine head attachment to help remove pet hair from your carpet and upholstery. If you don’t have pets just get the All-Floors model.
The Dyson DC25 has Root Cyclone Technology combined with an impressive 220 constant air watts of suction power. What does this mean? It means great performance. The reason is because this patented Dyson technology literally created a mini cyclone inside your vacuum cleaner and slings the dirt and debris out of the airflow and into the clear dust bin. So you don’t need bags which tend to decrease suction as they fill up.
The DC25 also uses the trademarked Dyson ball technology which provides unparalleled maneuverability by eliminating the limited back and forth motion of other vacuum cleaners. This means you will spend less time and effort, move around obstacles more easily, and have fewer missed angles.
This model also includes the lifetime washable HEPA filter that removes over 99% of harmful small allergens like pet dander, pollen, dust mites, and bacteria. It was even certified by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
The 2 most common complaints with the Dyson DC25 are that it’s too expensive and the cord is too short. I think you get what you pay for, and Dyson makes models both more and less expensive than this one. But don’t forget the cost of this unit is greatly offset by the savings you will receive by never having to purchase expensive replacement filters or bags. And I have never seen a vacuum that had a long enough cord. They are always too short.
Dyson Reviews Alternatives:
When Dyson Vacuum Reviews looked at the Dyson DC24 we felt like it was the little brother to the DC25. In theory it’s a good idea. It still has all the benefits of Root Cyclone Technology and the great maneuverability of the Dyson Ball. And it even includes the washable HEPA Filter. All in a package that is 12″ shorter and 4 1/2 lbs lighter than the DC25. And it costs less.
Unfortunately the DC24 only has about half of the suction power of the DC25 and just over half the bin capacity. For these 2 reasons alone I would go with the Dyson DC25, unless weight or a modest price savings are extremely important to you.

Dyson DC28 Animal
The DC28 Animal used to be the top of the line and most expensive of the Dyson vacuums. Although it has a slight advantage in power over the DC25, it lacks the Dyson ball technology. This unit weighs a whopping 9 lbs more than the DC24 and is extremely heavy. A difficult machine to maneuver with the extra weight and lack of the Dyson ball. What the DC28 does have is enormous bin capacity and great cord length.
I think this unit might be better suited to commercial or industrial use, where weight and maneuverability are not as important and the oversized bin capacity and cord length could be utilized. Bottom line is I think the additional power over the DC25 is marginal and not enough of a factor to overcome the negatives of this machine for most people’s needs.
Dyson DC41 Animal
If you have deep pockets check out the new kid on the block in my full review on the all new Dyson DC41 Animal. If price is no problem then this might be the one for you.
The Dyson Vacuum Reviews Top Pick is still the Dyson DC25. It has the best of all the Dyson models rolled into one easy to handle unit that really performs well and is priced right. There’s good reason this model gets more positive customer reviews than any other vacuum on the market.
