Normally, above the dust bin, you'd find Dyson's cyclone that spins dirt out of the air. The Cinetic vac uses hundreds of tiny cyclones to not only capture dirt, but break it down into fine particles.

Those particles will never cause clogs, so you won't have much cause to pop open the lid of the compartment.

We tested this new filterless approach with 10 pounds of the fine joint compound that makes up dry wall.

We sucked up half a pound at a time and measured the suction at each interval.

The new Dyson was put to the test to see if it stood out from top filtered models. Here they all are, definitely a bit worse for the wear after this rigorous trial.

The Dyson held strong. Every other vacuum struggled after a few pounds. The Dyson made it through all 10 without losing any suction.

Dyson's new vac bears a lot of similarities to their old models, but the inside makes it a whole new animal.
