“No More Baggage”

published 19/09/2012

ProBagless, powerful

ContraHeavy, bullky and hard work

This has been our family vaccuum cleaner for around 10 years now although it has almost been replaced on occasion due to either faults or the appearance of a fancy new model that took dad’s eye but was swiftly rejected by mum. Whilst at home we share the vacuuming “equally”, and so I have had...

“SUCK ON THIS”

published 11/04/2004

ProDesign lives up to its promise.

ContraPrice.

When you have animals in the house, one thing that you need in order to make your house smell fresh and clean is a good system of cleaning, and when I looked into which Hoover to buy, I kept being drawn to the Dyson, a little because of the advertising, and a little because of the design, though...

'Upright cleaners are best suited to carpets and cylinder cleaners are better for hard floors'. Yes, good advice, but I have hard floors, carpets and rugs, and was getting sick of storing two vacuum cleaners. I just don't have the space. I struggled for ages, using my old upright Dyson to do my...

Pro Superb suction

Contra Very pricey

My love affair with the Dyson vacuum began many years ago when as a poor student I spent my summer holidays working as a cleaner in an old folks' home. In those dark days, the Dyson cleaner was the only ray of light in my otherwise gloomy days of dusters, dishes, toilet cleaner and mops. Now...

Proamazing cleaning machine. no competition

Contratool holder loose, no on/off on handle

To those who know me, the fact I know where the vacuum lives, let alone being willing to write a review of one should give a clue that I either was amazed or totally disgusted by this product. Well, I was totally blown away the first time I used it. First thing... it's expensive. We'd bought (and...

I've had two cats and a crap hoover for far too long. Well, nine months. Nine months of hoovering a carpet with just the sucky tube of the hoover on my hands and knees, and still the cat hair clung fast. I decided it was time to make a change: and so I went straight to the fridge, where we write...

“Kings of Suckers”

published 05/01/2004

ProDesign, suction

ContraCan't think of any

I bought my Dyson 2 years ago, at that time it costs £250 and I felt it was money well spent. First of all, I live in a flat which, for good or bad, is fairly big and was, until recently, carpeted throughout. This basically means that there is a lot of hoovering to do. A few years ago, I decided...

ProIt's easy to use and works brilliantly

ContraA bit of a pain for use on Stairs

As the title suggests, this is exactly what I said to my partner, ‘If we split, I get custody of the Dyson’. Now being a lady with 3 cats, 1 dog and 2 children vacuuming shouldn’t be a favourite past time. In fact it never was, till the day my faithful vacuum cleaner died and my partner suggested...

“Waging War on Pet Hairs”

published 15/09/2004

ProCleans brilliantly

ContraA bit cumbersome

I swore I’d never buy a Dyson. Not at that price. How good could a vacuum be to warrant such a whopping monetary difference? No matter what I read, or how good people told me a Dyson was, I didn’t believe the price could possibly be justified. A classic case of paying for the name. But then 6...

Contratrying to find some

Well I've finally bit the bullet and bought what I call and expensive hoover considering I normally only spend about £50 on one. My previous hoover sprint had almost had its day so it was time to get a new one. Reading many reviews on ciao I decided on a Dyson, but which one is best ? well I saw...

OK, I’ve not really covered household items before, in fact, I’ve not written much for a while. So, whilst doing the housework the other week (music blaring), I was pondering my next Ciao opinion… And low & behold, whilst whizzing round the house with my funky purple Dyson Animal, there shineth...

I have had many hovers including the classic brand as well as various other makes. However, in the end due to the unreliability of them, when my last cleaner broke down I decided that this time I would get a quality make. I have owned a Dyson before, the 01 model right when the company set up...

Pronothing

Contrahose too short and complete lack of suction

I've aways had Dyson upright cleaners and found them very heavy. So I thought for a change I would buy a cylinder cleaner and with owning two dogs and being owned by three cats I thought this cylinder cleaner would be the perfect answer. However I now wished i'd never bothered. A bit about the...

Patented cyclone technology - you just can't beat it - or so Dyson say and I have to agree.
