which Dyson to buy
looking to buy a dyson upright but can't seem to decide which is best. Have read reviews and the dc40 and dc55 seem ok so far.
Any help from owners on which they would recommend would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

I read somewhere that there is a warehouse that sells returned , unwanted or rejected vacuums, and that 80% of them are dysons. Doesnt that tell you something!

Hmmm ok. Everyone in my family has dysons and they all say they're brilliant. Unfortunately all have different models. That's y I'm undecided

We've owned a DC1 (one of the very first 100 Dysons ever made) and a DC27. We had the DC1 for 8 years and sold it for half of what we paid for it and it looked and worked as new when sold. The DC27 after a year looked and worked as if it had been used in a factory environment, it's only 2-3 years old and we are already looking to replace it this year.

A sign of just how shocking the build quality and design is, despite being told over the phone by Dyson that the pre motor filter was not replaceable we managed to source a replacement but was advised by the supplier to "take extra care removing the cover as the clip is prone to breaking, so much so 1 of every 3 people who buy a pre filter come back to order a replacement cover" and after having replaced the filter I can see just how badly designed and made the access to this filter is. What I don't understand is why Dyson claimed it couldn't be replaced as once it had been replaced the suction improved vastly.

I can't comment on the DC40 or 55, but I'm defiantly hesitant to buy another Dyson.

If you have friends or family with a Dyson that is a year or more older go and take a look at it and if it isn't all scratched and scuffed up, the pre filter is easily accessible and the attachments are in good nick, I'll eat my own words. I'm not in a position to comment against the competition but comparing the DC1 to the DC27 I would say the DC1 was a £250+ machine and the DC27 was worth £100 at best.

I have just bought a Dc40 animal upright , purchased Boxing Day from Argos for £198. This will be my third Dyson , think our first was a Dc07 , then a DC14 animal. Both the first two lasted for over 8 years each. Dc40 comes with a 5 year parts and labour guarantee, so will last you at least 5 years, have always found their customer service great when replacing / fixing anything.
Good points about the DC40, it's remarkably lightweight compared to some of the older vacs, the ball takes a bit of getting used to but is fine after a couple of goes, suction is fab, it has a sliding scale , I find on max it's too much and makes it harder to move as well, minimum picks up everything just fine. Mini turbine tool is brilliant for picking up pet hair.

Bad points, the cord is shorter than my last one so I have to plug it in in different rooms as it won't reach from one side of house to the other. The old tools don't fit the new machines, and the combo tool is a bit useless, not a great brush and then the pointy bit can't get in all the gaps as the brush gets in the way. But you can buy an adapter on eBay for £4.99 ( not via dyson) and then you can use all the old tools . Also a fairly small canister , but enough to do my three bed semi twice before needing emptying.
Hope that helps , if you need any more info give me a shout.

The filters in the Dyson are the key to keeping it working to its best.. clean them as recommended and you should get 8 years out of it.. guess with the 5 year warranty you are guaranteed a minimum of 5 anyway.. don't see that with a Henry do you...

Granted Henry hoverer's aren't what they once were but my Cira 1990's fully functional metal bodied Henry has been abused to the extreme and is still the most powerful non commercial vacuum I have ever used.

We have a DC40 Animal and it's great. Dyson's customer service has been excellent as we've had the hose replaced a couple of times for free. It's about 4 years old now and is still going strong - we clean the filters once a month or so and we're happy with it still.

The Henry is very basic. but great a what it does.. I wrecked a Dyson whilst restoring my house.. it just couldn't cope with brick dust and rubble. the Henry is just fantastic for that.. but on a carpet the Dyson would win every time and also filter out the dirt..

My dc02 is still working brilliantly. Donated to my Scout Troop. The DC25 bought to replace it already scrapped. Same care taken with both. Bought a Bosch instead.

Dysons are fine as long as you service them. The pickup brush wears down and stops picking up so replace it. I abuse the hell out of mine with plaster dust, broken tiles, glass etc and then wash it out and service it. You can buy everthing on my DC07. I just swapped the motor for £15 as it started to spark. If you want a solid vac then buy a henry, I sucked so much dev and toner into one of those it melted into back tar on the bushes and still kept going. Filthy beast got kicked around the workshop and still sparked up ok.
