About This Brand

Colorful styling, innovative features, and a splashy advertising campaign featuring its namesake owner and designer have helped Dyson quickly become a major player in the U.S. Ranging in price from about $300 to $600, Dyson vacuums have helped increase the average price paid for uprights. Canisters have joined that lineup. Hand vacs are also part of the mix. The brand is available nationwide through major mass merchants such as Target, Best Buy, and Sears.

Comment:
The dyson handles extremely well and is really light. Carpet cleaning is nothing spectacular. Canister is small and must be emptied frequently. The plastic construction feels somewhat cheap. Had to return it to the store after 3 weeks due to the brush bar stopped working. The hose and attachements aren't very useful. Not worth the money. I've had better vacuums for a fraction of the price.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I love my new Dyson. I actually checked out some of the higher rated vacuums that were even less money but after 'test driving' all of them, I kept coming back to this model. My main criteria was picking up what I don't want on my floor; dirt and dog hair and it had to be powerful enough to raise the pile on our thick carpets. This Dyson passed on all three. I am very happy with this unit. Incidentally, the Kompressor was rated #1 but the 'end users' reviews were really low. I am really glad I bought my new Dyson before I checked out the CR ratings. (sorry CR- I know you are an excellent resource but we just had different opinions on this product).

Comment:
Hard to believe Dyson got such a low rating. I have had mine for 4 years and works just as good as the first day I got it. you clean filters so don't have to buy new ones. Great with pet hair. Great customer service.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
