I previously had a higher-end traditional vacuum for my 3 bedroom condo. A friend mentioned the superior cleaning of Dysons and I thought they were very expensive for a routine task such as cleaning the floor. Was I wrong. I put the sales assistant through her paces about the differences between the various models, and finally decided on the DC50 Animal. My best friend is constantly leaving little black dust bunnies all over the floor and hallway. From the moment you open the box, you can see how well designed this product is, but when I used it, I was amazed at the difference. Compared to my old unit, my stone and stone tile floors and rugs (deep shag, woven and medium pile) were so - so much cleaner. The self adjusting head saves so much hassle with figuring out the right height adjustment for various surfaces. Me and the dog were also pleased that this sweeper seems about 10 per cent of the noise decibels of the unit I replaced. The size is perfect. Compact, but with a long cord -- I can get into so many places that were difficult before with my heavy, bulky sweeper. Again, the difference in clean is just amazing. Add the ease of cleanup - no filters to replace, the handy attachments and the ease of using them with one button, and I could say to anyone that you should buy this unit of you live in a condo. With every penny and then some.

OK, I just finished using this item again and HAVE to write the review now. Previously (and still do) have a Dyson DC14 Animal which has worked well for many years. Unfortunately, there are too many tradeoffs with a compact version of the same/similar. This item is way under-designed, very disappointing in performance and suction is not sustainable and is substandard. I am really surprised that Dyson marketed this product. Being smaller, lighter can have its problems also. Going from different floors (carpet/rug to flat floor and back again) can be a shock when the plastic/light weight parts jump and snap back. Dang near thought I broke the thing already and I was not even using force. The "wand" (hose) is way too short. I cannot even reach the top of my dresser/desk with it using the brush attachment. I have to place the whole unit on the bed/chair to even get close to cleaning what I want. Awkward. The "wand" suction is definitely NOT the same as the regular upright...nearly useless. Still have dust on my desk and monitor. Bottom line, not recommended! I would seriously considered sticking with a full sized upright. Suggestion to Dyson...do not market substandard equipment. It really hurts your reputation.

By Skeptic10

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

First off I was a skeptic about spending this much on vaccum. But I understand now. It is extremely powerful and clean the carpet very well. Pro: Weight Suction Cleaning abilities Manuverability Attachments to get in all area of the house Does great on hardwoods with floor attachment recommend to purchase Cons: Hose is is short, hard and akward to use on everything (may need to be broken in) Struggles on shag carpet 1" or longer

Animal is one

By Ark7

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I am very happy with my new machine. It picks up so much more than any other vacuum I have ever had. Very lightweight. Even with a shoulder issue I can carry up and down stairs and much easier to maneuver. I have two long hair cats and it picks up fur great. On the negative side small canister must be emptied at least three times to do my house, wish on/off button was higher up and that there was a cord holder on handle to keep cord up while vaccumming. But these are minor compared to p,uses and I would recommend it and buy it again.

AMAZING!

By BetsyEES

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

This vacuum is AMAZING! We have 3 dogs (2 Golden Retrievers and a Rat Terrier), so that means we have a lot of dog hair floating around. After using the Dyson Ball Compact Animal for a year, we have decided we will never own any other brand of vacuum. We are constantly asked how we keep our house so clean with 3 dogs and our only answer is because we own a Dyson. It is so simple to use! Money well spent!

Great Purchase!!!

By Anonymous

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I am so happy that I decided to finally purchase a Dyson vacuum! I had vacuumed all the carpet in my house recently and then when I got my new Dyson out and vacuumed for the first time it came up with so much dirt! I know that it's truly cleaning my floors. This model also works wonders for picking up all the dog hair on the floors and also on the couches with the non-tangle attachment. I definitely recommend this vacuum!

Works great but needs frequent cleaning

By AHART

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I love this vacuum and it does really well. No more German Shepherd hair everywhere. I will say though that we recently moved to Texas and it's very sandy here, so even with frequent cleaning/maintenance the sand has etched up the vacuum and its parts (like plastic connections). You can't really help that though. Love this vacuum!

Giant in a small package

By linthoms

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

As soon as we got it, did my husband try it in our bedroom, yup got carpet! After a very small run, about a two square foot area, did we have so much dog hair and stuff in the vacuum, we had to empty the canister. It was really wonderful to see what this little giant could do on such a small area.

Unbelieveable

By Chatlga

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

A friend pestered me to ditch my fairly new and expensive vacuum and get a Dyson. I still can't believe that a vacuum could make such a difference. The amount of dirt the Dyson pulled out of my carpet was unbelievable. Despite regular vacuuming by myself and a housecleaning service, the carpets never really looked bright. After using the Dyson just the first time, the carpets were two shade lighter and looked practically new. Now, I am a complete believer, and I think Dyson ought to make my friend an honorary sales manager. I think he has sold about five Dysons to his friends.

best vacuum ever

By mamasweetp

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I bought this vacuum today after I felt like my old vacuum (not a dyson) wasn't performing well enough. I was skeptical about spending the money on a dyson because I thought it was just a vacuum. I have 2 dogs and once I vacuumed my bedroom, I was so pleased with my purchase. I did 3 rooms in my house and has to empty the canister after each room. To say the least I wanted to vomit. I am thrilled with my purchase and if you are on the fence like I was, I suggest buying the dyson now! They are worth every penny.

DC50

By glennt

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

Just got this machine from BBB in Palm Springs. Great build quality, clear instructions and useful additional tools; especially the 'Tangle Free' tool. The DC50 does EXACTLY what Dyson claims it will do, never (ever) loses suction, gets deep into carpet pile to remove even the smallest particles of dirt and dust and DOES NOT re-circulate them back into the air; even though this is a compact cleaner it is no less effective than a full-size machine (I have a DC54 back in the UK). I have owned Dyson machines since my DC03 and have nothing but total confidence in the technology and build quality. I did have an issue with the motorized head unit on my DC24 but this was replaced by a Dyson engineer within a day of reporting the fault and have never had any issues with any of my Dyson machines since!

Very good

By book

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

This is a great vacuum. It cleans well, which is the most important thing. I like the retractable handle for storage. I gave it only 4 stars because it is not as easy to clean the stairs as I had hoped it would be. The stair attachment is very small, and the long wand makes it difficult to cover a large area. I ended up having to carry the whole vacuum on each step, and not use the attachment, defeating the whole purpose of the stair attachment. And stairs was a main reason I bought this vacuum. Another problem is that sometimes the machine does not lock upright into place (I don't push it far enough) and the machine looses balance and falls over.

THE BEST EVER!

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I have wanted a Dyson forever! I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy one. MAN O MAN was I pumped when i first put it to work. I have two dogs and a cat. To say that I have hair in my house is an understatement. It sucked up everything in sight, even dog toys. I couldn't believe the filth i was living in, GROSS. The canister does fill up relativity quick but that means the vacuum is doing its job!! If you don't buy this your crazy!

Must have for pet owners!!!

By Anonymous

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I own two samoyeds who are constantly shedding. I had purchased a Dyson canister vacuum on Groupon 2 years ago and was very impressed on how much hair it got up and it wasnt an animal vacumm. We ended up moving to a nother appartment with thicker carpet and my cannister vacuum was starting to leave hair behind and my dogs hair was getting stuck in the brush so I was having to stop in the middle of vacuuming to cut the hair out and finish cleaning. I was finally fed up and decided it was time to upgrade. I AM SO GLAD I DID!!! This vacuum is so light and small but it picks up everything!!!! I vacuumed my 1100 sq ft apartment in like 10 min and was amazed that my dogs hair never got stuck in the brush! If you have long hair dogs or dogs that shed alot I recommend spending the extramoney and buying this vacuum! It is worth the investment and I now want to vacuum every day!

Dyson Ball COMPACT Animal vacumn

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

We have had Dyson's for the last 15 years and love them. We have a huge dog with tons of hair so the Dyson's have worked well for us. Our last Dyson died last week and we replaced it with this compact one. It works well but it is a smaller vacumn so be aware of that. What I do like about it is it is a lot lighter to carry up and down the stairs. Our old one was a lot heavier. Since we only have 2 rooms with wall to wall carpet this vacumn is fine for us. The other rooms are hardwood floors so the vacumn is fine. It still has all the great options and suction but on a smaller scale.
