Dyson dc25, You Get What You Pay For
After initially going to purchase the Dyson dc14, we did some research and finally decided on the Dyson dc25 and it was worth the upgrade.
The main reason that we are so pleased with the Dyson dc25 is the ease of using the attachment tools. With the Dyson DC25, you just extend the telescoping pole, and, voila! you’re ready to go. Other models require plugging/unplugging to use the attachment tools. I found myself having fun using the Dyson dc25 to attack every corner and groove with specks of dirt,cobwebs, dust bunnies and pet hair in it. The Dyson dc25 also works great for cleaning the ac intake grates and the fins of our air filters, most of them without ever having to bend over.
Of course there is the fantastic suction that you expect from Dyson’s reputation. Our carpet was absolutely disgusting and what the Dyson dc25 got out of our carpet the first time was absolutely incredible.
If you don’t think you’ll be using the attachment/tools on the Dyson dc25 much, the cheaper models might work for you, but if you enjoy being able to easily clean the tiny corners and grooves that no upright can fit into, then you will absolutely love the Dyson dc25 model vacuum cleaner. The Dyson dc25 is so easy to handle and maneuver around difficult objects like couches, chairs, tables, etc.
The “Ball” feature makes turning and getting into weird corners with the Dyson dc25 a breeze, although it may take you a while to get used to but with a little practice you will be cleaning like a pro in no time. Cleaning with the Dyson dc25 is similar to using a swivel-head mop and the way it handles.
I found the cheapest discount on the Dyson dc25 at Amazon.com and even got free shipping with Amazon Prime.
The Dyson dc25 works great and looks cool
We had needed a new vacuum for a long time and wanted something lightweight, high quality, and easy to transport up and down stairs. As I researched vacuums, I found that several brands were 25-30+ lbs., the Dyson dc25 is only 16 lbs and my back and arms are loving it. My children are old enough to start to helping with chores and the Dyson dc25 is a very easy vacuum for them to use. The Dyson dc25 pivots so easily around table legs, toys, etc. so you don’t have to take the time to move everything which saves me and my family tons of time, bruised arms, and lots of aches and pains from moving furniture.
The hand held hose on the Dyson dc25 is so easy to take out and use. There are 2 attachments that can click on. One is so cleverly designed that it has a brush feature that slides up and down over the hard plastic, so it is like having 2 attachments on one!
The Dyson dc25 bagless feature is one of my favorite things about this vacuum . The unit just pops right off, then you press a button and everything falls right into the trash. One thing I love is that the rubbish unit is clear so you can retreive something if you vacuumed it up by mistake. The only drawback I noticed is that the outside of the dust chamber does get a little dusty after letting the dirt out. I just wipe it down with a wet paper towel and pop it back on the Dyson dc25.
With the Dyson Dc25 you don’t need to select a carpet height or anything. Just flick a single button to turn off the spinning brush to clean your hardwood or laminate floors . The brush does slide out so that you can clean it too.
My husband was a bit skeptical in that the whole Dyson dc25 vacuum is made of plastic but he has since come around to agreeing with me that we made a wise investment. I think the Dyson dc25 works great and it is so cool looking! I love the ball design and how easy it is to use. I am so glad I did some research on the Dyson dc25 and decided to purchase it.
The Dyson dc25 gets a 5 star rating
When I first saw lots and lots of 5 star reviews and heard people raving about the Dyson dc25, I became quite curious about such an expensive vacuum. I checked out Consumer Reports reviews of the Dyson dc25, and found it odd that other vacuums that CR recommends have a lot of negative reviews while the all of the Dyson model vacuums and especially the Dyson dc25 were much more positive.
Out of the box, the Dyson dc25 vacuum requires very little assembly. You have to snap the roller brush head into place and with one click you’re done. No tools. The Dyson dc25 attachment wand/handle must be clicked into place and finally, the two wand attachments included must be snapped onto the body. That’s it. No more assemble required. Four clicks on the Dyson dc25 and you’re done. I would barely consider this assembly.
As many have stated, the Dyson dc25 vacuum has amazing suction. In our closet, we vacuumed the edge of the carpet where it meets our hardwood floors. The edge of our carpet wasn’t tacked down very well during installation, and we could see the Dyson dc25 literally and physically sucking the carpet up, lifting it from the floor.
We conducted a test by vacuuming a roughly 4×8 section of carpet that sees mostly average traffic. The canister on the Dyson dc25 was half-filled with very fine grey and brown dust and lots of dog hairs. It was nasty and disgusting. We had been using an Oreck XL, which stank terribly when in use. The Dyson dc25 was clearly pulling up a lot of old dust and dirt from the carpet that our old vacuum missed completely.
We have a Jack Russell terrier dog with fine white sharp hairs who sheds constantly, but the Dsyon DC25 took care of all the hair on our hardwoods, irregular slate tile, and carpet. We were told about the Bissell Pet Pack attachments that work with the Dsyon DC25 and although they don’t snap-fit, they still work just fine with pressure fitting. Using the pet roller and rubber head, I was able to quickly clean our dog’s pet bed. Initially I thought I might be wasting my time, because hairs were so imbedded into the bed’s fleece covering. However I am happy to say that I had the entire bed looking like new in less than a minute with the Dyson dc25, and the canister on the Dyson dc25 looked like I was making cotton candy with all of the hair swirling around inside. Incredible what this vacuum can do.
I find the cord length on the Dyson dc25 just right and I would think a lot of cord would be a pain to manage. I don’t mind plugging it in after each room. And like others have stated, if this is a problem, you can always buy a drop cord.
The attachments on the Dyson dc25 work very well, and my only complaint is that I wish Dyson had included a swivel/flexi head standard, and an angled brush attachment would make using the wand easier. Still, the simple lift-off action of the wand is great and I realize these complaints about the Dyson dc25 are very minor and nit picky. Flip open the top cap, pull up on the wand, and it disconnects from the Dsyon dc25 vacuum and suction diverts to the wand. Or, you can simply disconnect the wand and use the hose directly. The expanding hose is a little stiff, but the one I tried in the store was much looser, so I expect it to loosen up with age and become a little easier to use. If there is any area I would like to see improved on the Dyson dc25, it is that I wish the wheels could lock on the body when using the hose. I guess having it roll prevents the vacuum from tipping over if the hose is pulled too tight, but it would be handy to have the option to lock the wheels and prevent the vacuum from rolling at times.
I am very happy with my purchase, and I would highly recommend the Dyson dc25 to anyone interested in a quality vacuum that will last a lifetime.
