I recently purchased a Dyson Dc18 Allergy from bargain crazy. I received the machine within 7 days of the online order.
However, I am not sure that I made the correct choice as I am finding the machine completely opposite to what was mentioned in the online reviews.
Here are the noticeable differences I found:
1 In most of the reviews it was mentioned that the machine is very silent. However, I noticed that the DC18 makes more noise than my previous vacuum cleaner.
2 The thing which might be wrong is that I have laminate (hard-wood) floors in my house, but the machine I am using is the Dyson DC18 Allergy. Actually, I did notice the DC18 All-floors version on Dyson's website, but looking at the product details of Dc18 Allergy and DC18 All-floors I could not make out any difference. Also, the DC18 allergy was the only Dyson upright machine available on Bargain Crazy so I did not have much choice.
Although the machine makes a lot of noise, but while cleaning the laminate floor in my house I noticed that the machine was not able to suck everything on the floor and I had to use the machine a number of times to clean the same portion of the floor in order to clean every bit of dirt on it. Still I could see small bits of dirt here & there on the floor while after I thought I have finished cleaning.
Either I have purchased the wrong version/model of the machine OR I am doing something wrong OR the machine is faulty.
Kind help as I have spent a fortune on the DC18 Allergy.
