Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Like most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar age and spec to the DC55, the Dyson DC55 does not have a brush tool.

Alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool that you might also want to look at include the AEG Ergorapido AG 18PLUS[plb_2442032_price] which is also higher rated.

Not Good in Terms of Size

A few people who purchased the Dyson DC55 agreed that it was not heavy and bulky. In October this year Customer said “I do not find the 'Ball Technology' is easy to manoeuvre and is heavy to use”. Customer also wrote “It has less steering than the older versions and is heavy to use”. Jenny Webster wrote in her Dyson DC55 review “Fit back into position easily, is temperamental at best and often needs heavy handling to ram it back into place”.

Poor Design

One customer who bought it concluded that it was not a good design. Jenny Webster scored it 60 out of 100 and she mentioned on Amazon “Whether a design fault or a fault specific to this model”.

A Bit Expensive

A number of customers who bought the Dyson DC55 concluded that it was not good value for money. Customer said in their review a few weeks ago “I paid £279 for this hoover from a high street store and is a similar price on a few on-line sites” . Zen_sunrise wrote in their review of this vacuum cleaner on Amazon “It would have cost £99 to repair it” however they still rated the product 5 stars.

Not Cordless

The Dyson DC55 is not cordless. Most of the other vacuums that came out around the same time as the DC55 are also not cordless.

Vacuum cleaners which are cordless that might be worth considering include the AEG Ergorapido AG 18PLUS[plb_2442032_price], or the Dyson DC45[plb_1720117_price] which also has a higher rating.
