These are 2 bagless stick vacuum cleaners that can also be converted into a handheld vacuum cleaner.
One of the main differences between them is the power source. The Shark Rocket is corded while the Dyson DC59 is cordless. The corded one limits the area you can reach so you might have to change outlets to clean your home while the battery powered one have a drawback on running time. And the cost is another thing you should consider, DC59 is about $150-$200 more expensive than the Shark Rocket at this moment.
