You can buy a better-performing vacuum for far less money, making the Dyson Ball Compact Animal a poor value.
The updated $300 price of the newly named v6 makes it stand out as one of the best stick vac buys we've tested.
You could do a lot worse than the DC40; however, you could also do better and spend less.
You don't need to pay $649 to own a vacuum that cleans at this level, and if you are paying that much, you deserve a machine with a better design than this.
As usual, Dyson produced a competent product that costs too much. At $600, the Absolute isn't worth the upgrade over the Linx or even over other Dyson sticks.
Dyson's v6 Motorhead competes well enough as a high-end stick vac, but poor battery life and a tendency to clog with large particles hold the v6 Motorhead back from replacing your full-size upright.
The 360 Eye by Dyson is a very good robot vacuum, but competitors offer similar features and better performance for less.
The DC41's design disappointed us, and the Ball Allergy's isn't any better. Despite the strong performance scores, this pricey Dyson is still difficult to recommend.
Dyson reinvents the wheel with the Cinetic series, and though the filterless approach works, it doesn't add enough practical convenience to justify the price jump over similarly capable competition.
The trio of new models are built to be Dyson's most powerful stick vacuum cleaners yet.
The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball turns on a dime as you navigate your house and rights itself if it gets knocked over.
Dyson's new lightweight vacuum is more powerful than its predecessor, while the company's new stand-up vacuum can't be pushed over.
The Small Ball is a mini version of Dyson's standard upright vacuum, but also promises at least one key update.
