"WASTE OF MONEY!!!"on by maxinek8
Pros Agree with Schultz-easy to move, light weight coz of the "ball"
Cons Very fragile and breaks down easily. Only used it for light cleaning and still broke down - twice!
Summary Sent it for repairs (hepa filter stopped and hardly any suction)-seems that it was because we used vacuuming powder- a no no. So we stopped. Treated it with special care and only used it for light vacuuming whilst we bought the Electrolux to do the main job. Again, hepa filter stopped working and no suction. Total waste of $525...DON'T BUY!
"Way Overrated !"on by Schultz26
Pros The "ball" is it's best quality. Easy to move, light weight, looks great!oug
Cons It's the worst vacuum I've ever owned. Very fragile, the lack of height adjustment is terrible. (You can't vacuum up a Cheerio)
Summary I've gone through two in 70 days. The first one stopped "sucking" on day 60, luckily I was still within return policy and was able to exchange it on the final day of policy. Now it is day 11 and my second BRAND NEW DYSON has literally just stopped sucking. Completely turned off ! I've never been more disappointed in a $400 purchase. DO NOT BUY ! Stick to Kirby !
Pros Well built. Uses modern plastics that is flexible but doesn't break
Cons Price is higher. It like most things you get what you pay for.
Lack of storage for attachements
Summary Best vacuum cleaners we've ever owned. Had the first one for 5 years without a problem and just recently bought a second so we would t have to haul it. Ack and forth between the house and motorhome. They are easy to use, suck up amazing amounts of dirt, and are durable. Owners need to realize that something doesn't need to be as heavy and stiff as steel to be durable. Look how the wings on airliners flex in flight! We recommended the Dysans to many of our friends and most have bought them without regret. You often get what you pay for and in the case of vacuums ( and most mechanical devices ) it's definitely true.
