9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

It is worth considering other vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Miele Complete C3[plb_2415561_price] which also has a higher rating.

A Bit Expensive

Poor Power Cord

One person who reviewed the product considered that it did not have a good power cord. A.a. mentioned in their review on Amazon “The power cord is very messy” and gave it a score of 2 stars.

Heavy

Across all the vacuums of a similar age and spec to the DC25 the weights range from 660g to 11kg, and the average weight is 6.1kg. At 7.3 kilograms, the Dyson DC25 is quite heavy compared to most of the other similar spec vacuums that are a comparable age to the DC25.

If you would consider a vacuum with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Miele Complete C3[plb_2415561_price] (5.4kg and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Most vacuums of a comparable spec and age to the DC25 are not cordless. The Dyson DC25 is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Chart Edit

Very Small Dust Capacity

At only 1.38 liters, the Dyson DC25 has a fairly small dust capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that were released around the same time as the DC25. The smallest dust capacity of vacuum cleaners of a comparable spec and age to the DC25 is 0.5L, the largest is 32L, and the average dust capacity is 5.5L.

Chart Edit

Very Loud Noise Level

The quietest noise level of vacuums that have been around for a similar time to the DC25 is 59dB, the loudest is 89dB, and the average noise level is 76dB.

Vacuum cleaners with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Miele Complete C3[plb_2415561_price] (73dB) which is also higher rated.
