Summary: Had it two years, most frustrating thing is that is basically an excellent product but that it could be SO MUCH BETTER with a few minor adjustments - wait for the upgraded version!!! Pros: This vacuum lives up to one key feature that Dyson uses as a selling point: the filtration is HEPA filter grade - excellent. Also, no bags or throw away containers (hard to believe any vacuums are made otherwise) is a plus.
Summary: I have had this vacuum for three years now and the very first problem is the cord. It's too short and the attachments are very clumbsy and don't get close enough to the surfaces and tend to fall off easily. Now the suction is not the best . The filters are fine but the carpets are getting matted down it's not really fluffing up.Maybe the design of the interior carpet head should be better?
Summary: It works very well but I strongly dislike the design of various tools and how to attach/detach them. It's a bit like a doing jigsaw puzzle without a picture! Sent Dyson an email about this but no reply. Not very good to use if one has arthritis in fingers and wrists.
Summary: I chose this Dyson to replace my old DC05 animal. It does not do as good a job and I wish I had kept my old Dyson (I loved that machine!) and had it repaired by Dyson (I didn't know that could be done until after I had disposed of it). The DC22 is actually heavier than I expected and takes a bit of lugging about for a cylinder vacuum. It seems less robust than the DC05 and I have not found it to be as user friendly or as efficient on suction.
Summary: I have had a panasonic bagless vacuum cleaner for years and it has been excellent. However the plastic clips on the dust bin had recently become brittle with age and broken, a replacement would have cost over £150, so after using duct tape for a few weeks I finally gave in and bought a dyson DC22, as it was the right size to fit in my cupboard. I so wanted to be impressed with it but unfortunately I am not.
Summary: We own a Dyson DC14 Overdrive upright cleaner with a number of extra tools. However I was not happy using this to clean the car as to the risk of it falling over and damaging the car! So I did some research on Dyson's own website searching out the part numbers of the tools for the DC14 we had and matching them up to the DC22. They all tied up so ordered the DC22. It arrived today and, yep you guessed, it not one of the DC14 extra tools fit it!
Summary: OK - We all know Dyson's are powerful and that they could suck a golf ball through a hose pipe, but when I spend this much on a hoover I expect it to be a quality item. Sadly, this Dyson isn't. It feels really cheaply made, and you can see the lack of build quality and quality components almost everywhere you look.
