Dyson vacuum cleaners

Dyson vacuum cleaners are different from other vacs as they use patented Root Cyclone technology, which Dyson claims ‘spins the air so fast that centrifugal forces up to 150,000 times the force of gravity fling dust and dirt out of the air and straight into the clear bin.’

We've put 22 Dyson vacuum cleaners through our expert lab tests, from cylinder vacuum cleaners to upright vacs such as this one. Visit our vacuum cleaner reviews to find out how effective this upright vacuum cleaner was in our tests.

How we test vacuum cleaners

When testing vacuum cleaners in the lab, we look at how well each one picks up dirt – our Which? Best Buy vacuum cleaners pick up twice as much dirt as the average. We also test how loud each machine is – we've found noises ranging from 70db to 90db. As 60db is the level of a normal conversation, you could talk over a 70db cleaner but you'd struggle with one nearer 90db.

See our expert lab tests in action in our video on how we test vacuum cleaners.
