Lasted 5 months

Craig McHugh, Amazon
22 June 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this non-OE brushroll because it got overall good reviews. It lasted for 5 months of normal use, (vacuuming once a week) and then failed. The worst part is when it seized up it burned up the new belt I had replaced at the same time. The return policy is only 30 days so beware.

If you want a work out and a headache buy it

Pickycustomer99, Amazon

  • Summary: If you want a workout and a headache buy it. This vacuum cleaner is very bulky. It's very loud. It's heavy. The fan blows very strong on the left and you're chasing dirt and hair that it blows. The wand sucks too hard. Could use a brake when using the wand. The hose is too tight.

Disappointed!

  • Summary: I bought the Dyson DC17 in 2009 from another site. My Dyson has broken down twice in about 20 vacuums of my house. We have no pets and only three of us living in our home. I find myself going back to my old reliable vacuum everytime I sweep.

marketing triumph but crappy overpriced vacuum

Comparative Anatomist, Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: I've had a DC17 for a couple of years and we have a 2800 square foot house with LOTS of carpet, hardwood floors, and area carpets so I put this beast through its paces. Where to begin? First, the vacuum is better at spewing dust than sucking it up.

Never stops breaking

Madro, Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: I will never again buy a Dyson. Their "customer service" is non existent. The vacuum is a poor product and I can not recommend. I have had to have it fixed 5 times in the last 2 years. Do yourself a favor and do not buy a Dyson.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY - Motor is made in China

Average Customer, Amazon
27 December 2010
  • Summary: Our Dyson was used at a second home whom we visited on average one weekend per month. So 14 months old and used, at the very most, 28 times before breaking - not acceptable. It basically cost us $44.99 per vacuum of 1200 square foot home. The Vacuum (Dyson 17) was great, for about 1 year.

  • Summary: I fell for the Dyson sales pitch and saved up to buy this one. I have had this model vacuum for a year and a half now. For about the first 7 months I loved it. Now every time I have to use it I cringe. I have 4 pets and quite a bit of fur.
