Advantages Great suction, easy to use, picks up loads, not as heavy as other Dysons, does well on pet hair
Disadvantages Filters need cleaning more often than stated, doesn't fit under low furniture, still quite heavy
I bought my DC14 origin from Argos in 2010, I cannot remember the exact price but believe it was around £180, I bought it to replace an electrolux bagless cleaner which died a fiery death after trying to clean the whole house in one go with it.
The Dyson comes with a 5 year guarantee as standard which you have to register for either by phone, online or post. The Dyson has 2 filters, one above the cyclone assembly, to acess this you pull the little blue catch that says filter on the clear handle and flip it open, there is a sponge filter in a plastic and fine mesh type holder - this filter does not seperate the dirt from the air like on imitaion cheaper cyclone cleaners, it is there to stop any fine dust missed by the cyclones getting in to the motor - Dyson reccomends this is washed every 6 months but I'd say more like every 3 months depending on how much you use it and how many people/pets are in your house. There is also another filter underneath the bin assembly which filters the air coming out of the cleaner, this is acessed by popping open 3 catches with a flat headed screwdriver and Dyson say this should never need replaced but eventually it will turn black and block the air that comes out of the motor so after 2-3 years this will need replaced.
