It’s a colorful, visually appealing hunk of plastic parts, complete with the requisite cyclone technology and ball-wheel contraption designed for optimal maneuverability.
While Dyson products do tend to look cool, we haven’t always reviewed them favorably. We did like the V6, the V6 Absolute and the V6 Motorhead stick models, as well as the filter-free Cinetic Big Ball Animal Allergy upright vacuum, but nearly everything else we’ve tested has lost points due to questionable value. Yes, the models often performed well, but they’re extremely expensive compared with the competition and they don’t feel particularly durable.
Ry Crist noted that, “the vacuum clicks into its upright position, but it doesn’t always stick and can come crashing to the floor” in his review of the Dyson Ball Energy. That’s a pretty standard sentiment when it comes to the brand’s upright vacuums.
