    Terrible suction, tiny barrel. A lemon

    published

    The suction is terrible, will barely work on wooden floors and not at all on carpet. Worked maybe ok (but never amazingly) for 6mo but now it's actually faster to sweep and use a dustpan. This is despite cleaning all the filters and washing everything out. Not to mention the tiny barrel which requires emptying before half our tiny apartment is cleaned. And emptying the barrel is a filthy messy job. I bought this vacuum because we live in a small space with minimal storage and vacuum regularly and it's not been fit for purpose. I have purchased a Mila vacuum with a bag and although it's bulkier, it actually works and doesn't redistribute a heap of dust when it needs emptying. I'll never buy Dyson again.

    Useless… Minimal suction.

    published

    This Dyson has hopeless suction, would be quicker to pick up pieces by hand. I thought it was never supposed to lose suction, well this one did. Cord is far too short and hardly ever retracts fully. Have to go over carpet or floors several times to get it slightly clean, just terrible.
    Nothing.
    Minimal suction, short cord, cord never retracts fully. Waste of money.

    Hi Shan,
    I contacted the helpline on two occasions and they did not want to help me at all. Very disappointing. Went through some trouble shooting but still a useless machine, seems to be a lemon.

    This is fantastic

    published

    Just got a Dyson D26. The reviewer who said there was no suction must have a dud. It picks up everything, even cat hair from the carpet. The cord is actually longer than my old vacuum, so don't know why people complain. Wish I'd got one years ago. Even if it has to be emptied often, the pros far outweigh the cons. Light enough to pick up to do curtains and blinds.
    Light, easy to manoeuvre, doesn't take up much room in the cupboard.

    Thanks for this review. I was thinking of getting a dyson i have a 1 bedroom apartment, and don't want to pay 600-800 for a vacuum

    Horrible.

    published

    There are 4 adults living in our house, a 2 year old (who brings home half the sandpit from childcare) and 2 dogs. It takes 30min to do each bedroom floor, going over and over the same spot until its moderately clean, sometimes ill have to use a carpet rake first to get the hair up from carpet first but you can still run your finger nails over the carpet and seen the sand jump and hair still in the carpet.
    Light weight and easy to empty
    No suction! Doesn't work on carpet at all.

    perfect for me

    published

    I bought the dc 26 because of its small size. I like to "vacu dust" because of allergys.This cleaner is light enough to hold in one hand while dusting everything from micro venetian blinds to furniture shelves and even ornaments. Especially good for dusting books. I bought the soft dusting brush from Dyson accessories. Well worth the extra money. Also makes a good job of all our floors both hard surfaces and carpet.
    small size and amazing suctionnot
    not sure why the hose is fixed to the right as it comes out from the machine. It seems to prevent the machine from following easily when being pulled along.

    Doesn't live up to expectations

    published

    From my experience the Dyson DC 26 is a dud: stiff plastic hose and side hose mounting makes it hard to manoeuvre (it constantly topples over); similarly press the on/off switch and it lurches over; a short power cable means continually having to plug and replug; and, connecting the attachments is no easy matter (again, the inflexible hose makes this a struggle. Suction is OK but no better than my 15 year old Sanyo which was also bagless and featured an on/off switch conveniently located on the handle.

    expensive, poor design, hard to use

    highly recommended, only need tiny space to store
    car, timber floorboards, carpet, tiles... this baby can handle any surface and so easy to move around. I like the fact that it is so small but has the same big suction as the bigger models. I didn't like vacuuming before, but now I like doing it so much!
    light, small, easy to move around, strong suction, fun to use
    cord is too short, needs to plug and unplug a few times
