Why Has it Scored 71?

It has very good user reviews with 83% of buyers recommending this vacuum to others. Numatic vacuum cleaners also have excellent reviews in general.

This Dyson vacuum cleaner has an energy efficiency rating of B, and its running costs of £75 over 10 years are typical compared to the other 1,383 vacuums that we have compared it to. View all energy saving vacuum cleaners.
Customers report it is a good size, it is easy to use and good suction. However they also report poor technical guidance.
The DC50 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
A hard floor cleaning performance class
Has a washable filter
Very loud noise level
Quite low maximum input power

    Witch (Argos.co.uk) - January 2014
  • A long lead, convenient to use on stairs, very easy to empty dust container, in sharp contrast to a different vacuum cleaner of another manufacturer which was very difficult to empty the dust container, Easy to clean filter and to wash…

  • It's lightweight and very well made, we've had a few vacuums that haven't lasted long…
  • Waste of money already broke not picking up correctly piece fell off…
    Z2002 (Argos.co.uk) - November 2014
  • This is a very well made and efficient machine…
  • Not sturdy enough…
  • The whole thing is like a cheaper, less well made and certainly less robust cleaner…
  • Where the other one's have been strong robust etc this one yes is a lot less in weight…
    Stevie008 (Argos.co.uk) - September 2014
  • Furniture because of the hose is not long very long and the way its built it buckles easily - depending of the use…

    Rif1 (Argos.co.uk) - August 2014
  • Suction is bad feels cheaply made…
  • Its lightweight, compact and is good value for money…
  • The plastic design of the actual vacuuming bit with the brushes feels cheap and every time you open the plastic levers to clean the brushes it feels like they can snap off at any moment…
    JMol (Argos.co.uk) - November 2014
  • Bought the tangle free turbine attachment separately as it makes it equivalent to the animal variant for £100 cheaper, bargain!
