Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal + Allergy Upright

Sunday, 01 February 2015
Dyson Cinetic Big Ball
Dyson Cinetic Bag Ball Animal +Allergy

We recently got our hands on the new Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal + Allergy upright vacuum cleaner.  Dyson is known for pushing the boundaries of technology and this machine is no exception.  Not only is it bagless, but it also has no filters to clean or replace. All you have to do is empty the dust canister once in a while.

At the present time the vacuum has no average consumer rating because its limited release has resulted in very few consumer ratings. However it will be widely available shortly.


Hoover Sprint QuickVac UH20040

Avg. consumer rating = 81/100 

This is a compact, lightweight vacuum that is designed for smaller homes.  It is bagless, has washable filters and is inexpensive.  It also has respectable suction, and this, combined with the aforementioned characteristics, elicits reasonably good ratings from owners.  However, owners who are not aware that this machine is about 2/3 full-size sometimes report being disappointed. They highlight that the unit has less power, a shorter power cord, and a smaller dust canister than expected.


Miele Alize Canister Vacuum Cleaner

Avg. consumer rating = 96/100 

The Alize is a fantastic canister vacuum but it is important to understand what you are buying before you purchase.  Miele makes a wide range of canister vacuums each with a host of different features and attachments.  The Alize is a great machine for cleaning smooth surfaces like hardwood floors, tile or vinyl.  It is also effective on flat weave rugs and low pile carpet.  However with its existing set of attachments it may not be the best choice for homes with lots of carpet (especially medium to deep pile carpet). 


Sebo Automatic X4 Upright Vacuum

Avg. consumer rating = 93/100 

The Sebo X4 is a bagged upright vacuum cleaner designed and manufactured in Germany.  It has hospital-grade filtration and is approved by the British Allergy Foundation. It is well-built and reliable but expensive.  The X4 is noted for being powerful, capable on both carpet and bare floors and excellent at pulling up pet hair.  It is a tad on the heavy side however and the machine, while highly effective, looks a bit dated.


Dyson DC39 Animal Canister Vacuum

Avg. consumer rating = 87/100 

Never has a vacuum cleaner elicited so many I love it and I hate it consumer comments at the same time.  There are many 5 star ratings but also quite a few 1 or 2 star reviews.  Owners praise the vacuum for its strong suction, ability to pick up pet hair, easy maintenance, and low profile nozzle, however there are also comments that the dust canister has to be emptied frequently, the hose is short and the nozzle is hard to move on bare floors. 


Hoover Air Cordless Upright Vacuum BH50140

Avg. consumer rating = 87/100 

The Hoover Air Cordless Series 3.0 was just released in April of this year.  It is a cordless, lightweight upright that is somewhere between a stick vac and a full size vacuum - perhaps best described as a mid-size, cordless upright.  It comes with 2 long-life batteries so run time is excellent and the machine is very easy to maneuver.  The hose and wand assembly is awkward however and a few owners report that the tools are not particularly high quality.


Oreck Quest MC1000

Avg. consumer rating = 68/100 

Weve looked at several Oreck upright vacuums in the past and weve run into some pretty good machines - some even made our list of best upright vacuums.  So we wanted to see what Oreck was doing with respect to canister vacuums.  The Oreck Quest MC1000 is unfortunately quite underwhelming.  Consumer ratings are low and many owners feel the machine is cheaply made and not well designed.
