    My damning review of the Dyson Bladeless Fan is getting 100 page views a day.... it was previously getting about 5 per day.... unfortunately I tell people not to be so stupid and that they are a waste of money.

    Expect some serious hubs next April from me selling Tower fans! Should I decide to change my opinion about the Dyson Bladeless Fan for a week or two? lol

      Dyson!!?? don't get me started on his effing contraptions, his cylinder vacuums are shite. we got one from a catalogue and had to send 4 back after a week as they didn't work after 4 or 5 times!!!!

      Dyson maybe a millionaire, but his vacuums are arse!!!

        Personally I like the Dyson vacuums. Though last time I got it serviced I did use it and something fell off underneath and it ain't doing what it's supposed to be doing, at least not properly. I'm about to send it back for them to look over it.

          Maybe I got 4 off the reject line, but then again some friends and family have them and they have a different vacuum aswell just in case the Dyson goes kaput.....

          I'll put a Gypsy curse on Dyson if I know how they work!

          when my vacuum cleaner needed repair, I took it to a local, privately owned vacuum cleaner store. The owner sells Dyson, but he said they're definitely not worth the price. He showed me the vacuums he had in for repair and over half of them were Dysons.  He recommended Riccar which I had never heard of.

        They are effective UW, in fact they are very effective. But no more effective than the fan that I bought recently for the equivalent of $30. The smallest Dyson Bladeless Fan costs $329. So my verdict was based solely on the ridiculous amounts of money that some appear willing to spend. My understanding is that they didn't sell many at all. Launching a $329 fan in the Northern Hemisphere winter, in a global recession, was simply ludicrious. They effectively limited their market to Australia.

          I figured they would be expensive...

            Apologies, the smallest fan costs $299, but still! A lot of wonga to spend on something which just blows air into your face! You wouldn't need too much more to install basic aircon!

              It costs a lot more to run the air-con though.

              I much prefer ceiling fans, and even pedestal fans, to keep me cooler in the Australian summer.

              Fans are a lot cheaper to run. I'm wondering if the Dyson is even cheaper than that. It would have to be to justify the price. Though checking out your hub and the videos, maybe people will pay for it because it looks all sci-fi.

                I don't think they have sold many at all. On Amazon.com, for the search phrase 'table fan', the 10" Blue Dyson Air Multiplier is the 26th best selling product, and the white version is the 28th best selling.

                I know that is actually quite high, but number 9 is branded 'Air King' and costs $29! I would be interested to see the differences in their marketing budgets!

      Go on - change the review to a good write-up for the money - that is how the system works and why we are paying too much for everything and most of it is cr@p !  You may as well join them, or you could keep your self respect I suppose, its not worth much in money terms big_smile

    they're nice. my son has one in his bedroom.

    they sure need them in the northeast right now with the heatwave.

    you could probably sell them year round. it's always hot somewhere in the world.
