Dyson DC40 Origin Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Over the last few years, you may have seen a variety of vacuum cleaners that have mimicked Dyson. From "cyclonic super sucking" technology to "bagless vacuums with amazing see-through plastic," the field is officially crowded with imitators. Even with all these knock-offs, it is still easy to pick out the real thing, and there is none more real than the Dyson DC40 Origin upright. While the name may remind of a bad Hollywood prequel, the DC40 is anything but. Instead, the DC40 marks a homecoming, a return to the hallmark features of the Dyson brand. Patented Ball maneuverability and Radial Root Cyclone technology, washable filters, and a truly unique design are all features that have made Dyson vacuum cleaners nearly as popular as internet cat memes and frozen yogurt shops. In a sense, this is the perfect analogy. From chocolate sprinkles to pet hair, the DC40 lifts and retains the mess, soil, pet hair, and allergens that can quickly turn your neat and tidy home into your mother's worst nightmare.

In the box there is a new DC40 Origin vacuum (of if you prefer the name, DC40 All Floors, you can call it that too!) and two accessories - a stair tool (which most of you will recognize as an upholstery tool) and a combination tool (dusting brush/crevice tool). This set gives you the tools you'll need to banish the dust bunnies while removing allergens and keeping your home clean. Don't settle for a toothless shark or any other imitator when you can have the Origin(al)!

  • Ergonomically designed handle for comfort.
  • An in-line drive motor means no belts to replace.
  • As a mid-size Dyson vacuum cleaner, the DC40 has 40 feet on total cleaning reach.
  • Lifetime washable pre and post microfilters & a clear dust bin saves you money on replacement filters and dust bags.

Customer Q & A

Q1: What is the difference between the dc40 multi floor and the dc40 origin?
A: These "should" be the same thing except for the name. Their names have varied some from Origin to Multi Floor to All Floors, but have often been used interchangeably. So whether you see DC40 Multi Floor or DC 40 Origin, it's the same vac. Hope that helps!

Dyson DC40 All Floors Vacuum Reviews
Dyson DC40 Origin (All Floors) Vacuum Cleaner

Let's face it. Most vacuums suck, as well they should! I just so happens that Dyson sucks harder than most. All kidding aside, Dyson vacuum cleaners originally made a big splash when they first appeared on the market. Features like the lack of dust bags, a clear bin to see what junk you've vacuumed up off your floors, a completely unique design, and washable filters have all been things that set Dyson apart. With the DC40 Origin, Dyson goes back to their roots with a vacuum cleaner that stays true to these core features while improving upon each of them. And, as wheels gave way to the Ball, so too do older Dyson models make way for the midsize DC40. How do you know if this model is right for you? A closer look at the DC40 may clear things up.

What I like about the DC40 Origin Upright

Root cyclone technology is something pioneered in vacuum cleaners, and with each generation of vacuum cleaner, small changes improve and further this design. The DC40 is one of the latest iterations of cyclonic suction and again makes gains. More powerful than older models but lighter and more compact, the Radial Root Cyclones separates the air and forces more particulate out as it passes through the system. Small changes to the design make this Dyson cyclone one of the most efficient systems ever built. What that means for you is better airflow, greater suction, and better filtration.

The Dyson DC40 Origin splits the difference when it comes to size. It's not as large nor quite as powerful as the full size models, but you will save money with DC40. It's also larger than the compact models and features better suction. It's the "just right" of Dyson vacuums. Not too big, not too small, but sized right for most homes.

Even up until last year Dyson still offered vacuums that had traditional wheels, but now all have switched over the Ball design. While it may look somewhat odd, you quickly notice a difference between it and traditional wheeled vacuums the moment you begin to clean. The DC40 glides along, and turns with very little effort. This ease of movement, combined with a slimmed down cleaning head makes navigating around appliances, edging, and cleaning under low furniture an easy task. Unlike the bulky vacuums I grew up with, you won't have to ask your children to lift up the edge of the table or couch to clean around it. (Thanks mom!)

The brushroll control of the DC40 is always a nice feature. Why? Because while traditional uprights were downright awful on smooth flooring, with the DC40 you simply push a button and the brushroll disengages. You use just straight suction to clean smooth floors with no brushroll throwing dirt and debris all around. This is all possible because of the two motor setup that Dyson employs - one to create the powerful suction and a different, smaller one dedicated to powering the brushroll.

The self-adjusting cleaning head is also a great feature for most of use. If you have carpet of varying heights or even just rugs, switching between them means adjusting the height of the cleaning head. The Dyson cleaning head floats, which means it will adjust itself up or down depending on the surface you are cleaning. There are no dials or knobs to turn and pedals to push. It's all done for you.

Tired of replacing dust bags, filters, or belts on your old vacuum cleaner? With the Origin upright, you will no longer have to do worry about these expenses. The dust bags have been permanently replaced with Dyson's clear dust bin, and the filters are washable, saving the expense of replacement. As for belts, the design of the Dyson DC40 motor "in-line" which means there is no longer any need for replacing drive belts. These may not seem like much, but they add up over time, and so too does the savings.

Lastly, you'll a variety of standard features that are common with Dyson vacuums like a five year warranty, two additional cleaning tools (stair tool and combination tool), Quick Draw wand, and the unique design that is exclusive to Dyson.

What I do not like about the DC40 Origin Upright

There traditionally been a few drawbacks with Dyson vacuum cleaners, and they are the same for nearly any model. First is the filtration. While it is robust, and Dyson vacuums do actually fare well in independent filtration testing, they do lack true HEPA filtration. Now, unlike less expensive brands, they do have a sealed system, which helps to maintain airflow and suction. Next is the noise level. Call me spoiled, but they do seem loud. I temper this statement though with the fact that I'm comparing them to a Miele vacuum, which is exceptionally quiet. In reality, they are on par with other brands in terms of noise.

Overall, the DC40 Origin vacuum cleaner represents versatility and a "just right approach." While it's not the largest or the smallest, the most powerful or the most expensive, the Dyson DC40 upright showcases some of the best Dyson has to offer. As one of Dyson's most well rounded vacuum cleaners, it offers some of the best value for the cost, and it this blend of features, performance, and value that have made this vacuum one of the most popular choices.
