Dyson DC38

Want to find out how the latest Dysons did? We’ve got full test results for the DC38 and DC40 Animal and Multi Floor Dyson vacuum cleaners, alongside eight other vacs from manufacturers including Panasonic, Bosch, Shark, Morphy Richards, Oreck and Bissell.

When buying a vacuum cleaner, you’ll want to be confident it's good at cleaning and will last. That’s why Best Buy vacuum cleaners must not only deliver an outstanding performance, but have a good brand reliability rating provided by Which? members' feedback – or provide a free five-year warranty as standard.

Our test lab results of the much anticipated new Dyson DC38 and DC40 are now online, alongside eight other vacuums.

Lightweight, no loss of suction, quiet vacuum

Our latest test results have revealed some good-looking models with impressive-sounding claims. The Bosch Pro Power BGS52200GB claims to be ‘super silent’, the Dyson DC38 says it won't lose suction and the Panasonic Eco-Max light MC-UG614 claims its lightweight construction and high suction power will ‘take the effort out of cleaning’.

We’ve also done some extra testing of the Morphy Richards ‘Lift Away’ cylinder vacuum cleaner. This is an upright vacuum cleaner with a canister that detaches from the main body, so you can vacuum stairs and upholstery without lugging the whole machine around.
