Great vacuum with one little problem

Cincinnatimomof4, Viewpoints
14 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Love love how this vacuum sucks up everything with ease. It is the best vacuum I have owned, but I couldn't give it a perfect score because it doesn't fit under my cabinets. What a disappointment. I clean my kitchen floor, and then I have to get out the attachment to get under the cabinets.

Too pricey for what you get

Kayna M. Popnoe "Z", Amazon
9 May 2011
  • Summary: I've now had this vacuum for 2 years and my overall assessment is as follows: 1) As previous reviewers have stated, the suction is very powerful and works wonders on thick carpet and hard surfaces; however, it cannot be used on thinner throw rugs because the suction will suck up the rug or chew away...

  • Summary: I owned a Dyson and lasted for less than 2 years when I finally took it to the dump. The thing is I have 3 dogs and 5 cats. The hair is aweful. The dyson hose would clog up and almost impossible to clean out.

  • Summary: Short Story: Broke a few days after I received it.. Had it repaired. Same issue happened again after warranty.. Dyson says tough luck. Would cost $125 to have it fixed. Not terribly happy.

Dyson Absolute

T. Miller, Amazon
11 December 2009
  • Summary: Impressed at first, but not so much after a few years. Highlights include: 1) Bagless system saving landfills and pocketbooks on bags. 2) Pretty good job on hard floor surfaces. 3) Got to give it props for style and advertising. 4) Does better than our Hoover Windtunnel on hardwood and tile floors.

My new vac

D. O'shaughnessy, Amazon
9 November 2009
  • Summary: I bought a remanufactured Dyson vac from Amazon. Delivery was great. When I received the vacuum, it came broken. I realized it was remanufactured, but normally they fix it before they re-sell it. I called Dyson, and they led me to a repair facility 7 or 8 miles from my house.

If You or Your Children Have Dust Allergies or Asthma, BEWARE!!!

KT, Amazon
28 December 2008
  • Summary: First, let me say that I owned the Dyson DC17 "Absolute Asthma and Allergy" vacuum cleaner for about a week, and LOVED the way it cleaned. The various attachments added to the versatility of the unit. If I wasn't holding onto my hat, that would have been sucked into its clear canister.

Good suction BUT.....

Tilaran Rita "Rita", Amazon
17 October 2008
  • Summary: This is a well functioning vacuum and I like the ease of emptying the canister. I paid the huge price for this vacuum because it was supposed to be perfectly engineered. It certainly is compact and efficiently designed. I'm not sure they consulted a person who actually vacuums a house.
