There are several reasons this is currently the best Dyson vacuum you can get. So, let’s get into it…

It’s an upright vacuum which is the type that most users are most comfortable using; and while we encourage you to look at the canister and stick options on this list, if you’re happiest with an upright, that’s good too.

As far as full-size upright vacuums go, this is a couple of pounds lighter than many models, making it easier to haul up and down the stairs - and if you’re going to pay this much for a vacuum, you probably don’t want to splurge on more than one.

On that note, you should also consider the pricing; even the MSRP puts this ahead of other models - and you can usually find it cheaper than that on Amazon. For a Dyson, this is more than reasonably priced.

The cleaning head is self-adjusting and wide enough for fast cleaning, plus the suction is wonderfully strong without being overpowering.

Between the accessories and brushes, you can clean just about every surface with ease, though the extension hose is a little on the crazy powerful side. (It does, however, store within itself to minimize storage space.)

The cord is wonderfully long, so you can get your work done quickly without having to stop every couple of minutes to reposition yourself. And, the dirt canister is large and easy to empty.

When you add it all together, you’re sitting with a powerful yet reasonably-priced vacuum that’s more than capable across floors and living conditions. Plus, it comes with the warranties and customer service that Dyson is known for.
