Dyson DC28 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner Reviews

Dyson DC28 Animal reviews have good overall, with 64% of reviews we've found being 4 or more stars (out of 5).  But, there are also a fair number of negative reviews of this particular model.

Sample Customer Reviews

Positive Customer Reviews

this is the by far the best vacuum I have ever used. It's really worth every penny.  The 5 year warranty is such peace of mind as Dyson will replace or repair any parts or capabilities that malfunction or break. If you are searching for an outstanding vacuum, look no more.
-- D.C.

This vacuum cleaner is crazy good. The DC28 is super light weight and very easy to move around, the suction is so powerful the vacuum does most of the work, is almost self-propelled, and all you have to do is steer it around the room.
-- B.H.

Negative Customer Reviews

Nearly 25% of all reviews of the DC25 are 2 stars or less. Many of the negative reviews complain about the weight of the unit (it's heavier than the previous ball technology model, DC25).  There are also a few reports of the unit being loud and complaints about the bagless design.  Finally, a couple reviews talk about the vacuum not working after a few weeks of use (however Dyson does offer a 5 year warranty).

This is a great vacuum and worth even penny - when it works. Unfortunately my vacuum has rarely worked. One of the machine's strengths is its powerful suction, but on my vacuum it always fails to turn off the suction to the wand leading to lower suction to the head.
-- B.W.

My biggest problem with this vacuum is the bagless is messy, messy, messy. It is impossible to get all dust/dirt out of the canister efficiently.
