For me it's Dyson everytime. It's Simply The Best

I have a dyson and would never buy another - we paid over £200 for it and its rubbish - give me a henry any day!
#5
we went through two consecutive Hoovers (the brand) in a month before getting a Dyson. five years on and we've only just got rid of it. although we went for a VAX this time as we got a good price (40% off). Definitely recommend Dyson.
#6
There is a good reason Dyson have to bundle deals with retailers and give 5 year warranties, because they are not well built and do not last that long most of the time.

My parents are still using a 10year old Henry like many offices and workplaces use.

Dyson is brand kudos over actual build quality.
#7
Dyson DC07 are a really great vac. I know that they don't last forever but they give you a warantee.
My first dyson broke down towards the end of its 2 year warantee (This was when they only gave 2 year warantees) and I called dyson whom sent out an engineer within 2 days and he fitted a new motor, new brush bar and other new bits. This was over 3 years ago and since then it has been running very well although I now only use it to vac my cars and garage as I purchased a new dyson DC07 Hepa (White and grey model) as thats when they first introduce the 5 year warantee for £150.
#8
Avoid!

Out of all the products I sell I get more Dysons back then anything else.

Dyson have Great Marketing, Great Design

BUT what counts though

Poorest build and material quality in the market place of any product, you get 5 years because they dont want people to know how BAD they actually are.

The headache is people bring them back but I cant send them back I have to send the people away saying YOU have to contact Dyson for any repairs or returns, Dyson have no system at all in place for retailers to return product simple as.

I acutally only sell them because people want them I would love to aviod them but cant because of demand, but if there is a problem people realise and get angry with Dyson thats why they handle it all 'inhouse'

Oh forgot to say trade cost price for this model is £106 retails at £179 check their profit margains out and the higher up you go the margins are higher, says it all how cheap they sell them to trade and you HAVE to sell them at THEIR prices else they will close your account, you cant chose what to sell them at they decide for you.

Good find voted hot.
Its hard to say whom makes the best vac's. But when someone offers you 5 years warantee included in the price, surely its peace of mind for 5 years. I don't know any other manufacturer whom offers this 5 year deal.
#10
Oh design fault on Dysons make sure you reguarly check the post motor filter, this gets filled with carbon from the **** motors they use. Dyson tried to hide this by not making it available as a spare for FIVE years!, Dyson are not allowed to use the 'No Loss of Suction' anymore because it was a load of Marketing 'Bull' its always lost suction unless you clean it fully everytime you use it, oh just like every vacuum ever made LOL

Dyson are the Microsoft of the Floorcare world
#11
Just out of interest, KanKan101 what do you currently have and what do you currently recommend the instead?
#12
"The DC07 is the original classic."

Oh no it's not - the DC01 is the original "classic" - I have one. :-D
#13
Having worked for Currys and sold my fair share of vacuums, I CANNOT recommed Dyson at all.

We had so many come back for repairs.


I had a DC01 that lasted for ages, that's because they were built in the UK and used quality parts. Then James Dyson decided he wasn't interested in quality, just his bottom line, so they are now bult in the Philipeens using cheap parts.

I think the new Mach 2 range from Vax come with a 6 year guarantee (but i dont know the exact details).

Surely having a 5 year guarantee that people have to take you up on is counterproductive, why would you make something that will break and you'll have to spend MORE money getting an engineer to fix and repair (just to save a few quid on the initial price?)
#15
DYSONS are rubbish! It's all gimicks!

When it comes to actual cleaning ability and quality parts a Miele or Henry are by far the best.

Reasonable price though, but voted cold. Rubbish product...AVOID!
#16
I was on the look out for one of these, cheers

I have DC01 that has lasted 8 years, with 1 call out to repair the power lead and put a little yellow rubber sleeve over it to stop the casing and cable rubbing again, and its still going now. It would probably be ok now if I stripped it down, cleaned it out and replaced the belt and filters but I cant be bothered when I could have one of these for £118 with a 5 year g/tee
#17
THE ONUS IS ON THE RETAILER TO FIX/REPAIR/REPLACE ANY ITEM THAT IS SOLD AS NEW WITHIN 12MONTHS OF PURCHASE ACCORDING TO UK LAW.

So for the subsequent 4years after that you need bug Dyson directly and in the 1st year the retailer MUST sort you out.

I suspect the bean counters think not alot of people would complain after 2/3years and most would forget about the warranty, and they are right, look how successfull Dyson is, as was said above great marketing instead of decent build quality.
#18
My last Dyson served me well and lasted a long time then packed in so needed a new one

I bought a Dyson 2 weeks ago in the currys sale a DC14 paid around £179 for it, used it twice, and it was giving off a burning smell - the Dyson engineer came when it was a week old and offered to replace the motor. Not happy with this I took it to Currys to get a replacement but then discovered the sale had ended and the one I bought had been discontinued.

I ended up buying the DC07 and paying £179 but as a goodwill gesture they gave me £80 worth of accessories for it. I hope this one lasts us well

James Dyson transferred his Vacuum cleaner manufacture overseas due to the lack of foresight of the local planning department ! He was refused planning permission to expand his existing plant (creating new job in the process) when he was developing new products - washing machines, hand driers, robotic vacuum cleaners etc.

Due to market saturation there was a certain inevitability that it would eventually move to a lower cost geography but at the the end of the day don't knock british engineering and invetiveness.

I agree Dyson's may not me the most robust of cleaners but they knock spots off anything else in the price range. Many of them fail prematurely due to owners not following basic maintenence - i.e. clean the damn filters regularly !
#21
What screwed dyson is the shinny speckle they put into the plastic which made it 'brittle' the slightest knock cracked it, cost them quite a bit to resource as the plastic became illegal to use and they had to use standard ABS.

For info if your machines does go within the first year, retailers are instructed to inform consumbers to contact Dyson for repairs, retailers are not allowed to accept appliances back for return or replace them with another appliance, retailers are not allowed to instruct a Dyson engineer to carry out repairs at any location other than the consumers home, consumer must produce receipt as proof of purchase. To qualify for the 5 year warranty you have to register your Dyson with them, else you are only eligable for 1 year.

They may be, but that is illegal. Your contract for purchase is with the retailer, not Dyson. It is up to the retailer to sort out the problem using whatever methods they choose - but not to palm it off onto you.
#23
My parents had the DC01 for years and had a few fan belt problems which I had to sort out for them in the first 2 years. They retired their DC01 late last year after nearly 10 years of otherwise faultless service.

I've had a DC04 zobster for 8 years and have not had any problems.

Maybe I've been lucky? I would not hesitate to buy another one. In my experience, Dyson do offer very good suction.

have a read of any Dyson user manual, warranty card, sticks on the box and the machines they plaster it allover the place, any problems contact Dyson not your retailer. As long as a OEM stipulates this within a manual or on a warranty card then it is legal.

Its a way of hiding the poor quality of the product.
#25
But all of that is trumped by your "statutory rights", which mandate that you can seek redress from the party with whom you made the contract to purchase, i.e. the retailer.

I wasn't knocking "invetiveness" as you put it.

Dysons suitle hint in the paper work

"The guarantee provides benefits which are additional to and do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer."

ive just checked my records within 12 month fo purchase 37 Dysons faulty out of 77, of these 12 who waited 21+days for replacement product, these got fedup waiting and contacted Dyson themselves. Only 1 was returned to Dyson because the customer wanted a new machine not a repair that way took 3 months 18 days to obtain a replacement through Dyson.

all other 24 went straight through Dyson for repair all by customer arrangements.
#28
We've had a DC01 since 1993 and it still works perfectly... OH is very handy (sparky by trade)and has kept it running nicely :thumbsup:
#29
The other thing most people over look is that you need to clean the filters. Dyson instructions say every 6 months but a dyson engineer told me that you should check it every 3 months.

The above quote does make sence and haveing an engineer come out to you must cost more than the vac in the long term. Lets say you had a unlucky machine which broke down everyyear, i'd estimate the engineers cost would be about the £50 per call out and including parts and labour. So £50 for 5 years = £250.

Therefore The way I see it is that this vac works out at £25 per year for 5 years once the five years is over simply get a new one.

I have had an Oreck for 15 yrs never let me down can pick up with one finger worth the extra money, my sistyer is on her third dyson
#32
To maintain performance filters should be cleaned after every other use, performance does drop if you dont with Dysons.

Vax are the same as Dyson, plastered on stickers all over the vacuums and literature "Got a problem, breakdown ?, dont go to where you brought it contact us on 087something"

Vax are the same as Dyson but they dont send an engineer out to repair them all you get is a collect and replace service so you get a new vacuum your old vacuum is then resold as graded stock on Ebay through an agent, Vax's are cheap and made in China and again its a quality issue though I dont get near enough problems with Vax machines as I do Dysons and I sell heaps more Vax's, 6150SX is a really good machine from them.

End of the Day avoid Dysons totally, if you want a quality vacuum that will last forever and still beat new desing 10 year down the lead for performance then the Germans are what you need Miele & Sebo make the best vaccums in the world, expensive/ugly but they absolutely wipe the floor with any Dyson vacuum in quality & performance, never had a complain or return on Miele/Sebo only compliments.

Ah you're a retailer - it's in your interest not to make customers aware of the law and how it gives them the right to expect you to sort out faults on a product you have sold them... ;-)
#34
After all these bad reviews of Dysons I'd like to say we've had our DC01 since about 1995ish with absolutely no problems so far (I bet it catches on flames when I plug it in tomorrow because I wrote this).

Your just gutted that you can't sell an extended warranty on it................ and make more commision.

By giving a five year guarantee it stops sales people lying and pressuring people into buying something that is over priced, and gives poor cover.

I think that by giving a five year guarantee shows confidence in the product.....

utter poo, called dyson and and engineer turned up and fixed it there and then although this was years ago and it was a DC01 maybe they have changed

LOL

Nice a Retailer trying to help consumers and people moaning about it, Many Thanks!

1. I would never offer a extended warranty on a Dyson would never ever be cose effective, never have done never will do, those that do are STUPID faulty product figures talk for themselves. Oh and my company only off erextended warranty when the manufactuers warranty is expiring and not at point of sale.

2. If it was a "Quality" product and suggesting they are giving 5 year warranty for piece of mind and confidence in it is not how the white goods trade work, they wouldnt need to offer an extended warranty in the first place if it was a quality product.

3. Oh and janz70 you need to re-read what I wrote, I said Dyson do Vax are the ones that dont.

The only product thats been worth buying from Dyson was the orignal DC01 or it you can find one even better the black DA001 which was their very first vacuum. They wend down hill them then on.

Oreck vacuums are awesome sadly no UK distribution import only.

Now there's a comical statement. While you're about it, why don't you also argue that black is white and get run over on the next zebra crossing?
#39
pibpob take it as you will, unless youve worked in the trade for 30 years then you cant really comment, Im an Authorised DAD Dyson dealer, this came straight from the horses mouth the Dyson Rep, tehy do have a

Miele offer 10 years warranty on on their products, their machines will last 10 years without any service calls, 1.7% of Miele products sold require a repair in that 10 years.
