Dyson Vacuum Ratings


James Dyson had been inventing since childhood and his big breakthrough came in 1978 when he founded the Dyson company and began to design vacuum cleaners.  Dyson vacuums use “cyclones” that produce centrifugal force to remove dirt and debris from the air pulled into the machine.  This approach also eliminates the need for a bag.  After thousands of prototypes the first Dyson vacuum appeared on store shelves in 1993.

We have reviewed most Dyson vacuum cleaners and in general they get fairly good consumer ratings. Their most popular machines seem to be the uprights however their stick vacuums have been garnering a lot of attention recently.  The table below provides a list of all our Dyson vacuum reviews and the dates they were posted.  Also the configuration and rating is provided.  The ratings have been determined by averaging the consumer scores found on reputable retail & review sites (like Amazon, Walmart, etc.).  The closer the score is to 100 the better the vacuum rating.  We also have an overall vacuum cleaner ratings table.
