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.

I have the canister one they called the "animal" that I bought about 3 years ago. It has wheels, not a ball on it. There are so many design flaws to this thing that I am convinced the R&D people didn't ask ANYONE who actually vacuums to try it out. Because the hose is too short, pulling the machine along causes it to "stand up" like a dog on ts hind legs, the floor attachment has the suction holes on the sides (whoever heard of that?) instead of in the front where most dirt is when you vacuum, the small curtain attachment has the rubber edge coming unglued all the time. The actual wand itself is definitely not long enough . Within a week, the floor attachment broke causing the head to keep swiveling around. The only good thing I can say about this thing is the length of the cord. I can't wait for this to break down so I can send it to the dump. I will never again buy a Dyson product. I'm glad I kept my other make of vacuum because even though it is several years old, it still does a better job than this machine. Next time, ask an actual customer to try out your machines in their home for a week and get their feedback. Don't depend on a bunch of men in your R&D department who have never done any housework to know what actual users will think about your product

Awesome Customer Service!!!

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I wrote a poor review a few weeks ago about this vacuum and although I still feel firmly about my review of this vacuum, I have since contact their customer support about my issues and they have been exceptional! Customer Support quickly and easily exchanged ( at no cost to me) my vacuum for a larger Multi-Floor vacuum that works wonderfully. I couldn't be more please with their quick response and the results. I now have the proper vacuum for my household and I am thrilled to be a Dyson customer!

Dyson Ball Compact Animal

By CGSX

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

Nice size, compact, easy to move around. I switched from the full size Dyson animal to the compact. The few complaints I have; the cord. The cord is always twisting and difficult to roll back on to the machine. The extension seems flimsy and doesn't extend as far as the regular Dyson animal - not as sturdy. I wouldn't buy this model again.

Can't stand up against an Animal

By rdnn

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

We have a Samoyed, which is a long-haired dog that sheds a lot. Our hope was the "Animal" would live up to it's name... It fell short. I routinely have to de-fur the roller brush (no big deal), but more than that, fur actually gets stuck in between the roller and its axle, which is a huge pain to clean out. In short, my experience with each time I vaccuum involves emptying it 6+ times, de-furring the roller every other empty, and de-furring the axle each vaccuum busting out a screwdriver. This vaccuum could be ok for other people with less furry animals, but it just doesn't cut it for my needs.

Clogs easily

By Jervs

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I've owned this vacuum for 3 months. Worked well for about a week, but with 2 dogs (Labs) the canister fills within 5 minutes and clogs easily. We are constantly emptying the canister and pulling dog hair from the suction hoses. The suction is incredible and picks up fine dirt very well, but larger particles (greater in size than sand) increase the likelihood of clogs with pet hair. I don't think this vacuum is truly designed for animals as it advertises.

Worst Ever

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

We have owned two previous Dyson vacuums. This vacuum is horrible. I have a video of trying to vacuum up pine tree droppings and even a feather and it does not do it. There is no suction on the side of the brush. If you try to pick it up to do stairs, it's like the whole thing is going to fall apart. I am so disappointed. I guess they produced a few good vacuums early on and now are skimping on the quality.

Great, But could be better

By Touski

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

The Vacuum itself works great! I don't think you can really compare anything with weight to power ratio this thing has! The only issue I have with this is the Vacuums tube attachment. Part of the tube is flexible and the other is not. It makes it hard to Vacuum medium height things. For an example if something is on a countertop. They really should of make the flexible hose fully flexible and longer! Dyson really dropped the ball no this feature of the vacuum!

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

Purchased the animal machine instead of the yellow original machine, I feel this doesn't have a lot of suction as i think & heard Dyson should. We were going back & forth on which one & decided on this one but wishing we went with the yellow original one. My parents have 2 that they love. I Would buy another Dyson. Also bought the pet hair attachment. I wish that this picked up more hair off my furniture. & had more suction.

Giving it a chance

By NewReviewer

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

My mother has a Dyson and loves it, so she bought me the Dyson Ball Compact. I despise emptying the canister. It is a mess and you have to vacuum the area where you empty it. And invariably I have to touch the clumps to get them out. Bags are so much more sanitary. The on switch would be much more convenient if it were on the handle. The tube for attachments is very awkward to pull out and is too long for just reaching the floor. Its fine if you are aiming for the ceiling. It is definitely light-weight and the suction seems good as advertised although it did not pick-up a lemon seed. It is convenient that it adjusts automatically from carpet to floor. I'm going to give it a chance since it was a gift.

amazing power from a small unit

By drozelman

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

The DC50 is amazing! I was a little unsure about its power when I first assembled the product; the vacuum is rather small in size and is mainly plastic. I was fearful that I just spent a lot of money on cheap plastic. However, as soon as I plugged the DC50 into the wall, the results were amazing. I could not believe how much dog hair and dust this vacuum picked up after we had recently cleaned with our Shark. Though compact in size, this vacuum is big on value and power and effectiveness. I have routinely recommended this vacuum to friends and family.

We purchased this unit for my mother-in-law and have been very happy with this unit. It is our third Dyson (our other two still running like new) and we love all of the improvements with the current model. We will continue to purchase Dyson products as long as the quality remains the same. Dyson Lovers for Life.

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

This new owner likes the performance but found it physically difficult for this senior citizen to use. Called customer service and got a quick fix. Works great. The operating manual is somewhat challenging but it works. We have a cleaning service that comes in every 2 weeks. They prefer to use our Dyson instead of their own vacuum.

Best Vacuum

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

This compact vacuum is still powerful while being easy to store and carry upstairs/downstairs. It is easy to assemble and troubleshoot. All of the included attachments are wonderful for cleaning those hard to reach places, stairs, and baseboards. It picks up so much hair and dust leaving our home feeling fresh and clean.

Great vacuum

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

It still amazes me how much this vacuum really picks up. Its gotten plugged up once in the bottom of the hose, causing a much louder whirring noise. I took it apart and cleaned the filters and found the source of the problem: lots and lots of dog hair. This was about 6 months in to owning it, averaging vacuuming once per week. So, not bad at all! Still love this vacuum. I still recommend it 100%. My dog sheds like its going out of style, so I honestly wasn't surprised that happened, so it didn't change my opinion of the vacuum.

Great for pet hair!

By dwally

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

This vacuum works great as long as you don't want to use the pull out wand-type thing very often. The vacuum itself cleans really well, is light, and is easy to move around. It is also EXCELLENT in removing pet hair from carpet or fabric (i have a dog and a cat). However, when you want to use the extension wand, you have to remove the electrical cord from where it is kept (coiled around the back of the machine) in order to get it out. The wand/tube extension is also not very long; you basically need the vacuum next to you and then have to keep your foot on it to be able to pull the extension to it's full length (probably because the machine itself is so light). I am OK with this as I also have a cordless Dyson and therefore do not use the extension wand on this very often (usually just for vacuuming the couch), but if you would use the extension often, this is probably not a good choice for you.

I absolutely love it!!

By happymotherof2catsand1kid

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I used this for the first time today and I must say that i am very impressed. The suction on it out of this world. I had no idea how much pet hair was in my carpet. The actual assembly of it was a little unclear but once i figured it out I was set. The only down side to it is getting it to lock back in place or setting it back when your done. I had a few problems with it falling down on its own. But I love how light wight is it. I carried it up my stairs with no problem at all! I am truly happy with this product. The little issues are well worth how amazing of a job it does.

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

Love the compact animal, very light weight and easy to use. Great for people with arthritis, very easy to push on carpeting and even easier on wood flooring. Love the attachments for cleaning the cat hair off of the furniture. Worth every penny. This is our second Dyson, got the second one for the compactness and the light weight. Highly recommend!!

It does the job!

By Loominous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dyson Animal Upright Vacuum (DC50):

I've had this vacuum cleaner for about 6 weeks, and am quite pleased with it for these reasons: 1) I can't believe how much cat hair this machine picks up. I didn't even know my 3 cats were shedding that much. 2) It is 1/2 the size of the last vacuum I had, so easier to store. 3) It is lighter and nimbler, too. 4) I could have bought a less expensive vacuum, but I don't have to buy bags and belts ever again, so for the life of this machine, I think I'll come out even or better. 5) I thought it would be a pain to wash the filters, but it really isn't any more work than changing the bag on my old machine. I can't think of any negatives.
