    • This little vacuum makes vacuuming fun!
      Verified Purchase

      I purchased this DC50 for my newly installed wood floors. My DC14 was having difficulties transitioning from the floor onto the rugs. Between that and the constant having to turn off the brush bar made maintaining my new floors and rugs a chore. The DC50 solved all those issues and cut my vacuuming time in half. It also reaches places the DC14 can't go. And don't let the size fool you; this little vacuum covers 1000 square feet of wood floor and a 1000 square feet of carpet effortlessly. I give this well thought out little vacuum a solid 5 stars and strongly recommend it.

    • Compact= Smallest vacuum ever
      Verified Purchase

      Pay attention to the word COMPACT.... First off I would like to say I have owned dyson vacuums before. I ordered this one because my other one after many years of service died. This one came promptly in the mail. My first warning should have been the tiny box it came in, I figured I just had to put it together. However, after light assembly, I died laughing at the small size. The canister is so small, I'm not sure what "animal" dyson was thinking about when they made this. Suitable for perhaps rabbits and hamsters. This vacuum is no match for the dog fur my lab produces. I vacuumed a 2ft square and the canister was full. I am going to have to carry a trash bag around as vacuum my 3000+sq ft house. At least the suction is excellent as with all dyson vacuums.

    • As Good As New
      Verified Purchase

      This Dyson DC50 Animal Compact Upright Vacuum (Refurbished) is powerful and great for my short haired Terrier. I have a one bedroom apartment and this is a perfect size. I love how easily it pivot, twist and turns and I don't need to pull everything out every time I vacuum. It is easily emptied and cleaned. It is indeed compact which is a real plus when every inch counts. I lose no power, just bulk. It very cleverly contains all the bells and whistles of larger units. I would recommend this to everyone.

    • Works as advertised
      Verified Purchase

      After reading positive reviews regarding Overstock's fabulous customer service when it comes to their refurbished items, I purchased the Dyson DC50 Animal Compact Upright Vacuum. Out of the package: There were signs of wear: scuffs on the wheels, but overall, the item was intact. After three months of owning this refurbished vacuum, I confidently give it five stars. It amazes me how much is picked up every time I use it, and I vacuum two to three times a week in my one bedroom apartment that is all carpeted. I have one long-haired cat, one short-haired, and one Chihuahua. It's very satisfying to see all the dirt and fur that's picked up every time that I use it. Best investment I have spent.

      I have a Himalayan and the Dyson DC50 Animal Compact Upright Vacuum helps me keep her fur from taking over my house. The attachments that are included with the vacuum get all of the tough to reach corners.

    • I love my Dyson
      Verified Purchase

      I have wanted a Dyson Vacuum for years but the price put me off. Black Friday I woke up and received an email from Dyson (DC50) for roughtly $***, still a bit much in my humble opinion. I googled Dyson DC50 and the first result was Overstock.com showing this refurbished vacuum for just over $*** after a $** discount; SOLD! I received the package via UPS, it was repackaged well, a note inside stated this was a refurbished item but anything that needed to be replaced was and it should work like new, same manufacturer warranty applies. It was easy to assemble, and works just fine.....actually, I lied, it's amazing. The dirt this vacuum picks up is crazy, put my old vacuum to shame. I have a long haired cat, the Dyson handled all of the stray hairs like a pro. I have a black couch which tends to get dusty, the furniture attachment cleaned it up so it looks almost new. I'm really pleased with my Dyson DC50.

    • Dyson DC50 Animal Upright Vacuum
      Verified Purchase

      This is an excellent vacuum cleaner. It cleans up all pet hair and it's dandruff. Dust does not come out of the machine. Light weight. The 'not so good thing' about it...is that it is so aggravating to disconnect the hose part...when you want to clean along the baseboards or vacuum out the car. Dyson makes a 'Dyson Animal DC100' it is a bigger machine, just a bit heavier to work with...but the 'Dyson Animal DC50' is light weight & easy to handle. You will be surprised to see how much dirt&dust your 'other' vacuum cleaner left behind.

    • It's disgusting.
      Verified Purchase

      The first time I used this vacuum, I hated it. The cyclones whirred to life and the lights came on and all was as it should have been. We wanted to ease the device into its work, so we picked a clean patch of rug on the floor and rolled the Dyson over it. Suddenly hair and dust and all manner of flaky dirt crusts spun in the collection chamber. It revealed to us an unknown world of filth living in our carpet. We went to the area by the cats' litter box. We knew this would be a challenge. What we didn't realize is that the floor underneath it wasn't beige, as we previously thought, but a pleasant off-white. Another revelation from the Dyson. Over the next 30 minutes we filled and emptied the chamber six times. We have a small, three-bedroom apartment. This shouldn't happen. No way can a relatively clean-looking place have so much invisible cat hair, dust, pollen, litter, and things too specific to mention here. We hated the Dyson because its bristled roller combed through our floor and reflected our filth to us. It taunted us. The handheld suction tube, which was almost comically easy to unhook from the main unit to clean our baseboards, exposed a gray line of lint and debris that collected at every junction of wall and carpet. We hated the Dyson and we loved it. Now we are clean.

    • Great Little Vac
      Verified Purchase

      We have only had it for 4-5 days but have used it throughout the house. Suction is excellent and love the big ball technology. My wife loves how easy it is to take up and down stairs. I is refurbished but there is no way you can tell. I rather save the cost difference. Also, people at Overstock have been wonderful if I had questions. As someone else mentioned. When doing floors if there is a large item on the floor it tends to push it. This is because of the self leveling floor that keeps suction constant. It is no big deal. Just lift a little and it will vacuum it right up. If the machine holds up over time it will be a great vacuum. John

    • My new Dyson delivers as promised
      Verified Purchase

      This Dyson vacuum has powerful suction that doesn't lessen as the dirt cup fills. It is lightweight & flexible, easily maneuvering around and under furniture. The compact head makes vacuuming my 3 flights of carpeted stairs SO much easier. Love my new vacuum!

    • vroom......vroom....
      Verified Purchase

      The best vacuum ever - light, powerful, quiet, and purple! Who could ask for anything more? In a more serious vein, I read reviews complaining the refuse bin is too small. My house is attached to my stable, we track lots of animal related "stuff" into the room that attaches one to the other. This vacuum takes care of it all, and if I have to dump the bin every day......well I'm OK with that. Great vacuum.

    • Excellent vacuum buuuut...
      Verified Purchase

      This vac is all I wanted accept the hose, which I use for 50% of my vacuuming time...I love the attachments but the hose barely stretches and it is VERY hard to maneuver without knocking the unit over. It only reaches about three feet without a good amount of difficulty. The long straight extension makes it hard to get where I want if it isn't somewhere high.

    • The best!
      Verified Purchase

      Have had a Dyson for years, and this one is the best, seems to pick up better than my older one. I love the small size, but it's still very powerful!

    • Very disappointed in Dyson Refurb
      Verified Purchase

      Totally disappointed in Dyson "refurb". It came in a plain brown box (but split open with shipping tapes holding) which I could understand but an used, old and dusty vacuum? That's unacceptable!! I read some reviews complaining about the quality of refurb, still decided to give a try. What a waste of my time! Overstock, please work with your supplier Dyson to address this issue. Dyson did NOT refurb their returned products, they simply pull it out, didn't replace any used parts, empty the dust bin, put it in a brown box then resell it. Seriously, you are still charging $*** for a so called refurb. Please treat your customers right, stop getting products from suppliers that are not up to par in quality. Thank you.

      The machine stopped working after 4 months. I did buy a refurbished so it was a chance. This gets 4 stars because I got a full return after the return time because I am a loyal customer and the product stopped working. Good customer service goes a long way!

    • Small and perfect
      Verified Purchase

      For my small one bedroom apartment with my large german shepherd who constantly sheds long white hairs, this is perfect. Picks up all of his hair and works great on the microsuede couch cushions. Only drawback is that it is small so I have to empty it out after each room, but again I have a small apartment so its not such a big deal right now. Later when I have a larger house I will probably replace it with a full size one like my mother-in-law's.

      Just what I wanted it's awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Verified Purchase

      I love this dyson. I didn’t realize how small it would be, but it does a great job on our 4 bedroom, 1600 square foot house. It also does a great job keeping up with our three dogs, one rabbit, and family of 7. I use it every other day and have had zero problems. My only complaint is that the cord isn’t as long as on a regular dyson so I have to put it into two outlets when vacuuming the downstairs. Works great on our carpet, tile, and hardwood.

    • Verified Purchase

      I've used the Dyson brand for 15 years and my previous machine was so sturdy. I was sad when I was told it couldn't be repaired. So, I found this one and selected it because of the brand and the animal filter, (I have 2 fur babies). It is not the sturdy machine to which I m accustomed. The handle seems like something is missing and it slips out of place during use. I would pass on this model.

    • Verified Purchase

      Love it! Very lightweight and powerful. The canister is a bit small but it forces you to empty it and keep it clean so it’s not a deal breaker.

      It works awesome, this my second dyson and for it to be refurbished, it looks brand new and works really good

    • Verified Purchase

      So far so good! I couldn't believe the price on the fusion vacuum, almost half the price refurbished vacuum. It came in well packed and it looked brand new. I love it!

      It's smaller that was I've had in the past. But since most of my house is wood floors. I just needed it for the area rugs and stairways. It's powerful and gets the job done

      My old vacuum works much better. Total waste of money and I didn’t get the 15% discount that convinced me to purchase it in the first place. Really doubt I will purchase another item from overstock.

      We have now had this vacuum for over 4 years and it has been working great. You need to clean it out every now and then because of the buildup in the roller head and some of the hoses. Also, the roller brush will break apart after a few years and need to be replaced because all the bristles break off. But it still sucks just as good today as the day we bought it!

      Second one bought for vacation home. There is no better!

      Had this vacuum for maybe 8 months and it broke. It was not worth the money spent on it. We ended up throwing it away in the trash. We bought a shark and love love love it! This dysen was a waste of money.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "I can’t seem to make sense of the hose. I feel like when I want to use the hose I have to pin the vacuum back, it seems to retract. I get very little use of it and the directions don’t help either. Why won’t the hose stay fully extended when powered on?"

    • Q:

      "Comments complain about the short hose. I live in a two-floor, high-ceilinged condo. Can I buy another longer hose separately? Also, for the Refurbished models, how/where to I go if it needs repair? I've seen these same questions of repair come up in other comments. Thanks."

      • A:

        This is Dyson's compact vacuum. Therefore, the actual bin and hose are much shorter than some of the other models. I would recommend going with a different model if your ceilings are higher.

      • A:

        You would take it to a Dyson service center if it needs repair while it is under warranty.

    • Q:

      "how often does the filter need to be replaced? Are the filters washable?"

      • A:

        Filters are washable. I wash mine every 3 months. Make sure they are completely dry before putting back in machine.

    • Q:

      "does this vaccum come with the filters? or do i have to buy them seperately?"

      • A:

        Filters are already included in the machine

      • A:

        The filters are such that you can easily take the machine and clean every part, including filter.

      • A:

        It comes with the filters
