OK I need to ask maybe a stupid question but what makes a vacuum cleaner worth over £200? I mean all they do is suck up dirt, it's not rocket science and there are loads on the market under £100 that get excellent reviews. Serious question here and looking forward to being educated.
You get what you pay for, pay under a hundred quid and it'll be fine i'm sure, but perhaps heavy, inefficient and crap build quality amongst other things. Find me a Comparable item for a lesser price, please, but you can't, the investment is soon recuperated in time, energy, effort, ongoing costs etc. People realise this and that's why even the DC41A at £400 sells thousands of units every week in and out in the U.K.
Dysons have a few things that justify their 50% (+) share of the market.
Firstly, Guarantee... the fact that the company are so confident in their product they can cover all parts and labour for 5 times longer than other reputable brands such as Hoover, speaks volumes. Their aftersales service is also excellent.
Secondly they Capture more dirt than ANY other cyclone technology...(Having had a henry, this is pertinant- going back to using one is like using a straw!) Dyson has been continually refining vacuum cyclone technology since inventing it more than 20 years ago (The technology other brands such as Vax areusing is literally copies of Dysons expired Patents of such technology!) Dyson cyclones spin at over 40G force per cyclone...means it captures more dirt and microscopic dust than ANY other. No bag to clog so No loss of suction! FurthermoreDyson’s patented Root Cyclone™ technology
Traps allergens and expels cleaner air-Approved by both the British Allergy Foundation and Service Allergie Suisse.
Thirdly No extra costs, Other machines are still designed to need replacement bags and filters. Over 5 years these items can cost up to £175. Dyson vacuums are bagless and have washable lifetime filters – so there are no extra costs.
Then build quality wise, the machines are incdibly durable. All Dyson vacuums are made from ABS and polycarbonate – the same material used in riot shields and crash helmets- I can Jump up and down on the bin and it not break!!! Every single component is relentlessly tested to last!!!
Lastly, this model ...It has the Dyson Ball- meaning cumbersum bitty awkwardness clutter has been reduced. Motor, power cable and air ducts are all housed in the ball itself. It makes the machine easier to steer along edges and lowers the centre of gravity - giving greater stability. It flows really well and is much smoother than traditional vacuums. AND recommended by The UK College of Chiropractors who commends Ball technology for its potential to prevent musculoskeletal discomfort during vacuuming.
Also The cleaner head self-adjusts to maintain optimal contact with all floor types. It lowers on hard floors to remove more dust and pet hair from crevices and corners. On carpets, the base plate raises or lowers automatically, allowing the brush bar to remove pet hair and particles caught in the carpet fibre. It's designed for outstanding performance across all floors - not just carpets, but the whole of your house.

Hope that's some help.
I used to think the exact same thing beergoggles, but you need to use one of these beauties on your own carpet to appreciate how superb they are! The suction is phenomenal, when I first used it on our cream carpets the amount of dust it collected was shocking! No word of a lie, my other half and family thought I'd used a vax/Bissell type carpet cleaner. With a dyson you don't need to exert yourself to get the vacuum to do it's job. This is just my opinion but as you can see I highly recommend them!

Great price for the DC40 animal. I couldn't find one of these for less then £380 when I was looking earlier in the year and ended up with a lesser model. Maybe these have come down in price as there's now Dysons with a dual layer of cyclones.

Are you a Dyson Salesman and any facts/evidences to back up claims like 50% market share and catches more dirt than anyother Vaccum cleaner?

I dont think 50% of UK households will be doshing out on expensive vaccums cleaners like these. I have a smaller Miele one and does a very good job for half the money.

No I'm not & Yes, for claims See Dyson website to corroborate. Furthermore every vacuum is labelled with the "Captures more dirt" sticker, so it's not a whim.

& Miele vacuums are Bagged- Porous material which clogs and compromises suction and diminishes performance. Furthermore increases ongoing costs with needing to buy replacements. They also retail around £200 so hardly a different league.
Just ordered (didn't need to wait til 8am?) so fingers crossed its good,worried a lil as this thread didn't get much heat...
