Dyson's DC59 competes well enough as a high-end stick vac, but poor battery life and a tendency to clog with large particles hold the DC59 Motorhead back from replacing your full-size upright.
The DC59 is an elegant, customizable vacuum that performed well on a variety of flooring surfaces and with an array of debris types. If you're not looking for a budget-friendly model, you can count on the DC59 to make vacuuming as enjoyable as possible.
