Difficult to Empty

M. Kiya Z. Byers said “The bin fills very rapidly - which is understandable, given the unit's size - and then, worse, is difficult to empty; much of the debris gets compacted”.

Very Small Dust Capacity

The Dyson DC49 has one of the smaller dust capacitys (only 0.5 liters) amongst vacuum cleaners of this age. Across all the comparable spec vacuums that have been on the market for a similar time to the DC49 the dust capacitys range from 0.3L to 100L.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Like most of the other vacuums that are a comparable age to the DC49, the Dyson DC49 is not cordless.

Vacuum cleaners which are cordless that might be worth considering include the VAX Life U91-LF-B[plb_2665551_price], or the Black & Decker Stick Vac SVFV3250L-GB[plb_2981498_price] which is also cheaper.

Quite Short Cord Length

At only 5 meters, the Dyson DC49 has a fairly short cord length compared to most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been around for more than two years. The shortest cord length of vacuums that were released more than two years ago is 0.6m, the longest is 16m, and the average cord length is 7.2m.

Chart Edit

Expensive

The cheapeast vacuums of a similar spec and age that we found costs £34 and the most expensive costs £654. We think that this vacuum looks expensive for a vacuum of a similar age and spec.
