Hands-on preview of Dyson Cinetic Big BallWe've taken Dyson's Big Ball home for a spin
16 February 2015
Dyson’s new Cinetic Big Ball upright vacuum has a whopping £460 price tag, so we were keen to try it out at home so we can bring you our expert first impressions.
The Cinetic Big Ball is the upright version of the Cinetic DC54 cylinder vacuum cleaner, which we've tested. Both come with Dyson's patented Cinetic technology, where tips on the end of each cyclone help to separate fine particles from the air. Dyson says this prevents the filters from clogging, which removes the need to wash or change them and means your vacuum will never lose suction.
At £460, this Dyson is the most expensive in their range. But does a premium price mean premium performance?

Like other Dyson vacuum cleaners, this model comes with some of Dyson's patent features and tools, such as the ball to help with manoeuvring, which is bigger on this model making it apparently even easier to steer.
The Big Ball also comes with Dyson’s dual mode floor head, which has a spinning brush bar to help get deep into carpet, and can be switched off when moving to hard floors for optimum performance on both surfaces.
When Which? vacuum cleaners expert Matthew Knight tried this out in his home he found this a useful feature: 'You can switch the spinning brush bar on and off using a handy button on the body of the upright. When on carpet the turbo brush really digs in to the pile and picks up dust and fluff you didn't even know was there. It also aids with the forward motion of the vac so it is easy to move around on carpeted surfaces.'
