We love our Dyson! DC50 is nice, compact size but does a great job for a 3 bedrooms and 2 living rooms house. The first time we used Dyson it picked up so much dust that our old vacuum was living behind. It’s light weight and great maneuverability makes it very easy to use. We are so happy with Dyson that we just purchased a Dyson V6 Absolute cordless vacuum to add to our DC50. Its great for cleaning up every day mess that kids make and also the car and reaching up to high places .
