Dyson Has Good Vacuum Cleaner Reviews

Dyson vacuums have good ratings on average and across all vacuum cleaners Dyson is one of the superior brands.

Good Suction

Some people concluded that it had good suction. Jenny Webster mentioned on Amazon “The best function is the suction on the attachment arm for overhead cleaning” but in spite of that she only gave the Dyson DC55 a rating of 3 stars. Jenny Webster also wrote “Sadly not enough to compensate for the dreadful suction in the floor-cleaning upright position”.

Good Product Quality

A number of people who purchased the product considered that it was good quality. Amazon Customer wrote “A Good Quality Vacuum Cleaner” in their review.

Robust

One person who reviewed the Dyson DC55 reckoned that it was strong and durable. Two years ago Rebecca scored the product very highly and she mentioned on Amazon “Anyone who is looking g for a high quality robust vacuum will definitely be happy with this one”.

Easy to Use

A few Dyson DC55 reviewers concluded that it was easy to use. Book Mad Me wrote in their review of the Dyson DC55 “Not worth the money and so hard to use and clean” nonetheless they only gave the product a score of 1 stars.

One person who bought it mentioned that it was comfortable and easy to hold. Customer mentioned “The hooks that retain the cable when not in use are only just wide enough to hold the amount of cable it comes with” in their review of this vacuum cleaner.

Chart Edit

A Carpet Cleaning Performance Class

The Dyson DC55 has an A carpet cleaning performance class which is better than the D carpet cleaning performance class found on most vacuum cleaners that were released around the same time as it.

This vacuum cleaner's carpet cleaning performance class (A) is in fact the best carpet cleaning performance class amongst all similar spec vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as the DC55.

Chart Edit

Fairly Long Cord Length

At 11 meters, the Dyson DC55 has a quite long cord length compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this spec and age. Across all the vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the DC55 the cord lengths range from 0.6m to 16m, and the average cord length is 7.2m.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Dyson DC55 does not have a brush tool. Most of the other vacuums of this age and type also do not have a brush tool.

It is worth considering alternative vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool including the Bosch Athlet BCH625KTGB[plb_2665395_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not Good in Terms of Size

A number of people who reviewed it agreed that it was not heavy and bulky. Customer mentioned on Amazon “I do not find the 'Ball Technology' is easy to manoeuvre and is heavy to use” in their review of this vacuum cleaner and gave the Dyson DC55 a score of 3 stars. Customer also mentioned “It has less steering than the older versions and is heavy to use”. Jenny Webster wrote in her review last year “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 reviewed it considered that it was not a good design. Jenny Webster said in her review of the Dyson DC55 on Amazon in January last year “Whether a design fault or a fault specific to this model”.

A Bit Expensive

Several people who reviewed it agreed that it was not good value for money. Customer said on Amazon “I paid £279 for this hoover from a high street store and is a similar price on a few on-line sites” in their Dyson DC55 review. Zen_sunrise mentioned on Amazon “It would have cost £99 to repair it”.

Not Cordless

Like most of the other similar spec vacuums that are a comparable age to the DC55, the Dyson DC55 is not cordless.

Vacuum cleaners which are cordless that might also be worth considering include the Bosch Athlet BCH625KTGB[plb_2665395_price].
