Dyson DC17 Review Pros and Cons
MSRP$499 This vacuum is more expensive than average and is priced in the top 13% of upright vacuums.
Premium Features9 This vacuum cleaner has an above average number of premium features and ranks in the top 15% of upright vacuums.
Variable Suction ControlNo Power and suction levels cannot be adjusted when vacuuming diffferent surfaces such as delicate rugs, deep soiled carpets, or bare floors.
Detachable CanisterNo Detachable canisters are not a common feature, but they are handy for using your attachments on furniture, stairways, or narrow areas.
Noise ReductionNo Special noise reduction features have not been incorporated and noise levels are typical of your standard vacuum cleaner.
Enhanced SteeringNo Uses standard steering which is generally constrained to pushing the vacuum back and forth across the flooring.
HEPA Filter True or absolute HEPA filters are best. They can capture 97.99% of particles down to 0.3 microns including dust, pet dander, and allergens.
Absorb OdorsNo Charcoal filters are not common, but if you're a cat or dog owner, they do help absorb odors out of the carpet.
Auto Cord RewindNo Manually rewinding the cord takes a little more time and effort, but the vacuum can still look neat and organized.
Special Features This vacuum has other special featues that are unique to this brand, and which help to make it more user friendly and effective.
Indicator Lights Includes indicator lights that alert you to required vacuum maintenance such as filter cleaning or bag changing.
Edge Cleaning Designed with side brushes and / or air suction to vacuum flooring all the way to the edges. Prevents dust and dirt from accumulating against the baseboards.
Longer Cord Length Cord length is greater than 25 feet which is adequate for most room sizes in a standard home and reduces the frequency of switching outlets.
HeadlightNo It's not a must-have feature, but if you vacuum in the evenings, or have a darker home interior, consider other models that come with a headlight.
Longer Warranty This vacuum is backed by a warranty that is two years or longer. The standard vacuum warranty is only one year and is one of the indicators for design and quality.
Brushroll On / Off Having the option to turn off the brushroll as you transition from carpet to bare floors helps keep the dirt from being pushed away from the vacuum.
Automatic Height Adjustment The vacuum height is automatically adjusted as you transition between different carpet piles, or to rugs and bare floors.
Turbo Brush Includes a turbo brush attachment that helps remove pet hair, dust, and dirt from furniture, stairways, and window coverings.
Weight (lbs)20.8 This vacuum cleaner weighs about average when compared to other upright vacuums.
User Reviews4.2 Dyson DC17 Review - Based on user reviews, this vacuum is rated higher than average by 684 users and ranks in the top 29% of upright vacuums.
