To Dyson or not to Dyson?

Postby clothmama » Sat Mar 29, 2014 11:30 am

I was thinking about vacuums today as some of you had been talking about your vacuum. I've yet to own a vacuum that I've been happy with but never actually gone and bought a new one other than some cheapy ones at various times. Some of you seem to love your Dysons but I've also heard bad things - that they aren't worth the price and that there are other ones that are as good / better and cheaper.

So what do you have and do you like it / what would you rather?

I have a dyson cylinder vacuum. I love it and will never buy another brand again. I've just bought a dyson handheld too. It's fab,

Im loving it at the moment but a few minor issues that may be resolved in time. We got tge dc25 -on offer £240. Its amazing for picking up grub. Our lounge has never been so clean. But we have a few small rooms and corners which are difficult to get into as the hose bit isnt v flexible. It may loosen in time or it nay be detachable. ... I dont really do instructions!! Its quite heavy to move too. I wouldn't recommend for an elderly person or if you have back/wrist weakness. Again it may be that I m.just not very adept with it yet. We had a dirt devil before on offer at £50. Suction was awful, hose pipes broke v quickly and filters had to be replaced often at great expense.

Mine is ok but I think I would do a different model next time one which you pull round with the hose doing the work rather than an upright one if that even makes Sense!

I just can't cope with the noise of the Dyson's. The newer ones may be a bit better now but I did hear one the other day and I thought was is that noise? I have a Miele and I love it.

We have a dyson animal upright- and it gets well used, I must Hoover 4 times a day!
I like them as they come with a 5 year guarantee.

I love Dyson's. Although we only have a handheld here because we don't have carpets so its not really worth spending the $$$ for a couple of rugs. But the handheld gets absolutely hammered. Our upright we have just doesn't do the same job as a Dyson.
