Dyson Vacuum Cleaner

Updated on December 5, 2014

Need a new vacuum cleaner? Look no further.

So, I needed a new vacuum cleaner.

Plenty choices out there now. We've been through a few brands over the years, but I have to say that my last vacuum cleaner has survived the test of time. In fact it has survived for 12 years, and to be fair, it is still going. Apart from now looking like something left over from an army yard sale, it has done the job admirably. It was a DYSON, and that is why I will be looking at sourcing another DYSON vacuum cleaner.

So if it is not completely broken, why am I looking for a new vacuum cleaner? (No jokes about the cylinder now being full!!! I do clean more often than once or twice every 12 years). - Well, after all these years, the hose is just beginning to rip and the brushes are beginning to look a tad threadbare. So I could argue that a few spare parts would get it back up to the front line, but I like the idea of any excuse to shop (or at least get to look for a new Dyson).

So, I'm looking for a new DYSON and I'm very pleasantly surprised by what has evolved over the last 12 years.

Time and the efforts of the good engineers and designers at DYSON have progressed. Basically the same innovative engineering design though. No bag, no loss of suction, well-engineered and actually built to last. Our current Dyson is testement to that.

So it just comes down to which DYSON design will fit our needs and budget.

I'm actually tempted to go for the smaller shorter one with a roller ball, as it not only looks good, it will also easily be moved around the nooks and crannies as well as being much easier to store in a closet. It will do the same job! Sooking up the dust and dirt and with the aid of the health filters make my life easier and cleaner. (Of course, added bonus - the DYSON health filters are important if you have allergies or pets).

To be honest, I would probably go for the cheapest DYSON available, as I am quite happy that the engineering of the DYSON brand will not let me down. As long as it does the job well and can last another 12 years. It's peace of mind.

Everyone could benefit from making the cleaning chores as happy and cheery as possible, (can you see me forcing a smile at that thought?), so I am still please to see the DYSON range coming out in even more bright and adventurous colors. It also looks a bit glamorous to the neighbours when we are out vacuuming the car at the weekends.

Like all my Amazon purchases, I'm more than happy with their delivery and guarantee policy. Great service all round. Thoroughly recommend for an easy life and peace of mind.

      Sure sounds heavy duty!

      Oh, it is with such a heavy heart that I read this. My beloved Dyson suffered a similar decline as yours recently and despite printing the details of it's replacement model for my husband to replace it with, he returned with a completely inferior lime green contraption that has let me down all three times I've used it! Beware cheap imitations!

      Thanks for this awesome review. If I ever have to shop for another vacuum, I'll probably be looking at a Dyson. :)

      Nice lens :-) Never figured reading about vacuum cleaners would be interesting, but with a product like Dyson, it's good reading. The higher end ones are a bit pricier than what we typically go for, but the innovations in technology are certainly worth looking into. Thanks for sharing

      @francescajohnston: I agree, the initial outlay is expensive but they last for so long.

      I have had my DC25 for about 3 years now, after having to buy a regular vacuum every year due to inferior models/brands breaking.

      I LOVE my Dyson DC25. If anything causes it to "break" I have been able to fix it myself.

      Dyson also has AMAZING customer service and will tell you how to fix your vacuum right over the phone. That's if you couldn't find a video on Dyson's website of your exact problem - which is unlikely.

      They are expensive, but so is $200 per year for a new vacuum and having to pay the garbage company to haul it away. ($25 with mine)

      My husband and I have looked into getting a Dyson. Right now, with the economy so bad, it's just not financially feasible to get one. We bought a vacuum cleaner about 3 years ago (a Dyson knock off) that was cheap ($129) and it works like it is a cheap knock off. My husband swears at it almost every time it's used. We got a smaller Shark vacuum to pick up what the big vacuum won't pick up. Long story short - we definitely would buy a Dyson but shelling out $300 + on the low end is too hefty at the moment. Still, one day we hope to get one!

      I am actually in the market for a Dyson so your lens is very, very helpful.

      @TransplantedSoul: Absolutely! ideal if you have pets. Some dysons are actually marketed 'for pet' households. The power and the filters make the job easier and quicker. Thoroughly recommend.
