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.

Worst purchase ever!

Pros
Long Power Cord
Cons
Clogs constantly
Poor Design
Best Uses
Comment:
The power head that was sold as being great to turn off the rotating bristles to use on hardwood floors leaves marks on my hardwood. Not scratches - just marks that have to be cleaned up. Dyson sent new little wheels and the same thing is happening. I called and they said to use the hard floor attachment, which I have to lift up every few minutes because the stuff isn't sucking up. It stays on the bristles. Worst product ever and biggest waste of money. My 20 year old Kenmore does a better job and has NEVER marked my floors.

What a waste of money! The floor/carpet attachment is impossible to use. It fails to pick up anything but dust, like crumbs or clumps of dirt. Very disappointing purchase.
