Dyson Gen5outsize - A mix of portable and power


I have been both impressed and thoroughly enjoyed using the Gen5outsize. I had an older cordless Dyson and this one blows that one out of the water in more ways than one. The amount of battery life and the second battery really makes a difference when using the unit on your entire house and has finally got me convinced that a cordless vacuum can be your primary vacuum rather than just for something here or there. The gen5outsize has a few features that I have been very impressed with. The one that stands out the most for me personally is the HEPA filter. The way the vacuum can ramp up or down depending on how much the filter is sensing is not only neat, but helps prolong battery life while still being able to handle heavy dirt/grime. The ability of the filter to tell you what you are vacuuming up and also the size of it has helped me out a lot more than I guessed it would have. I have pretty bad allergies and the interface showed me that I would sucking up a lot of small particles - allergens - out of my carpet in my bedroom. I went over the carpet many times until the numbers dropped and my allergies have been better than ever in my current apartment. The attachments the gen5outsize comes with range from pretty neat to really helpful. The hardwood floor attachment comes with a light that illuminates debris on the floor clearly for you to see. The anti-tangle attachment has been great for removing cat hair from my furniture. When you take the tube off of the main vacuum, there's a little attachment inside ready to go that you can use which I thought was really cool! All in all the Dyson Gen5outsize has to be the best cordless vacuum out there for general purpose vacuuming to date.
