No More Baggage

AdvantagesBagless, powerful

DisadvantagesHeavy, 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 plenty of experience using it. The extra appeal when buying this product was the fact that it claimed to be particularly good for getting rid of allergens. It ..." Read review

SUCK ON THIS

AdvantagesDesign lives up to its promise.

DisadvantagesPrice.

"...a little afraid that the Dyson would not live up to its promises, and that I would be stuck with a gadget that looked pretty rather than an effective cleaning system. CLAIMS MADE BY THE MANUFACTURER. The Manufacturer claims to have invented Cyclone technology which sounds very fancy, but what in fact does this mean to the average housewife ? It meant nothing to me when I bought the machine. They were empty words. Cyclone technology is supposed ..." Read review

Dirt and Dust Die with Dyson!

Advantages Superb suction

Disadvantages 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, anyone who has ever visited my flat, been in my car or even seen my desk at work for that matter, will know that I'm not the world's tidiest person and might ..." Read review

Why I'm in love with this vacuum...

AdvantagesFunky looking, powerful, and suitable for all floor types

DisadvantagesDo you really want to be looking at all the dust you've picked up off your floor?

"...ages, using my old upright Dyson to do my carpeted rooms, then using my little cylinder cleaner to clean the laminate floors in my other rooms, and it was becoming madness. So, after doing a bit of research, I found this model... Ok, so the rotating brush on the upright cleaner is what makes them so efficient at picking up the dust from carpets, but it is this rotating brush which makes the upright unsuitable for hard floors. If the brush picks ..." Read review

There's a new sucker in town Diamond review

Advantagesexcellent suction and power, clear bin so you don't lose stuff, you don't have to buy new filters, vast array of attachments

Disadvantagesarray of attachments initially offputting, attachment for hoovering the cat not yet invented

"...crumbs are beneath it. The Dyson DC08 Animal** is going to set you back £299 at most electrical stores and is widely available. It looks just like this picture, except the colours are different. It's purple where the turqoise is, and silver where the blue is. The cheapest price I could get was £257.99 from www.electricaldiscountuk.co.uk. If you find it cheaper elsewhere, don't tell me!! This included delivery within 48 hours - very impressive. ..." Read review

Now that is a Sucker...... Review with images

AdvantagesGreat suction, great quality.

DisadvantagesNone as yet

"Dyson DC08 Origin Dark Steel/Yellow Cylinder Cleaner. ---------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ----------- ------------ ----------- As far as luck with household electricals go with me it is all or nothing at all as when one seems to come to the end of its life cycle all the others soon follow in its footsteps. Any way that is my little moan out of the way, back to the reviewing. I recently found myself having to replace my ..." Read review

Kings of Suckers

AdvantagesDesign, suction

DisadvantagesCan'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 to swap my old carpet - lovely pink - to a new one and made the awful mistake to get a dark blue carpet which means that EVERY specs of dust can be seen ..." Read review

If we split, I get custody of the Dyson

AdvantagesIt's easy to use and works brilliantly

DisadvantagesA bit of a pain for use on Stairs

"...my partner suggested getting a Dyson like his mum has. So, there was me thinking, ‘They can’t be ‘That’ good’. But yes, oh yes, they really are. The advantages of a Dyson, especially the DC08 HEPA Cylinder Cleaner are numerous. Firstly, it’s bag less. Yes, no more changing the bag! No more looking for replacement bags and having a nightmare trying to find them. This saves money no end. Especially if (Like me), you do have animals and pet hair ..." Read review

Waging War on Pet Hairs

AdvantagesCleans brilliantly

DisadvantagesA bit cumbersome

"...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 months ago yet another vacuum cleaner broke on me after not much use and I decided to face the ‘told you so’s’ and splash out. After a lot of reading, researching and online price comparisons, I decided on the DC08 Animal cylinder model. I thought that maybe it was the cat hairs that had buggered my previous ..." Read review

This cleaner sucks.... and it's a good thing !

Advantagesamazing cleaning machine. no competition

Disadvantagestool 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 returned, and returned the return) a cheaper (about a third of the price) look-alike which was poorly built and frankly didn't work, and out of sheer ..." Read review

The Dyson DC08 Origin Review with images

AdvantagesMany

Disadvantagestrying to find some

"...and decided to get it. ~ Dyson ~ The Dyson brand is a very well know brand when it comes to vacuum cleaners and a few people I know have them and swear by them. So what's the big deal ? - cleaning power and no loss of suction, robust and reliable. Dyson also make quite a lot of different models for which ever purpose you require. Apparently Dyson only make dry hoovers which is fine for us. ~ The DC08 Origin ~ Bought it, put extra ..." Read review

Down Boy... what an Animal!

AdvantagesYou'll know if you have pets

DisadvantagesNot found one yet...

"...house with my funky purple Dyson Animal, there shineth the light. My mum bought myself and my husband a Dyson Animal for Christmas, and as the ‘primary housekeeper’, I have to say that it is a truly wonderful invention. To place a little background to it… James Dyson is an inventor by nature. Early potterings brought about the sea truck, wheelboat, and most famously (pre hoover) the ballbarrow – you know the wheel barrow with one big basketball ..." Read review

Dust Annihilating Animal

AdvantagesPowerful suction that never fails

DisadvantagesFlimsey support for the hard pole due to small clip

"...make. I have owned a Dyson before, the 01 model right when the company set up years ago in the UK. After a lot of pondering I finally decided to get the DC08 Animal Vacuum Cleaner. Not only for the alluring purple colour, to also suck up all of those pet hairs from every knack and cranny in the house with the special attachment tools. Also at £219.99 from my local Dixons store it was hard to resist. Enough of my life story now and lets get ..." Read review

Sucker!!

AdvantagesGreat suction - fairly lightweight - easy to move around - good customer support

DisadvantagesNone

"...beat it - or so Dyson say and I have to agree. When I moved into my new place the one thing I had completely forgotten about was a vacuum cleaner and this lead to much rushing around when I realised that my cough and wheezing was down to the amount of animal hair left by the previous owners. Not being well off enough to pay for new carpets I decided that I had to go forth and buy a Dyson - after all everyone I had spoken to raved about them. I ..." Read review

No loss of suction?

Advantagesno running costs, performance, after sales

Disadvantagesprice, storage, power!! (see review for explanation)

"...having to this. A fact Dyson are obviously aware of as they provide a sticker to remind you to do this! The downside of this power is that if you have any loose rugs/carpets/lino you will not be able to move the machine very easily as it will literally stick itself to the floor! This would be a concern to me if i had any back probs or was older. Another problem (and one I belive later models have addressed) is that of storage, the hose and wand ..." Read review
