TONS of very good reviews (4.6 out of 5.0) over at lowes.com
Previous sales available, can’t dig for more recent one now.
Want a really old sale from 2011:
maybe back later, bye
Of course this is up the day after i buy a vacuum. Thanks obama.
yeah because woot doesn’t have vacuums for sale very often.
I had the Dyson DC24 but got rid of it. It has low suction, fills the tank too fast, does not work very well on rugs, and is only good for small jobs. It was a disappointment and waste of money.
There is an oval house that gets a hole and suction is lost. When I called Dyson, they knew exactly the problem so it is a common problem.
The specs say it comes with a warranty card, but does not say the length of the warranty. Any help on this woot? It could be a deal breaker.
Bought one of these a while back. It’s been broken twice. Same problem - the button that turns on the beater bar has broken. Total time used…maybe 20 hours.
The specs say 6 months, from Dyson, same as previous woot with 98 comments August 2, 2012 (and same price $199.99)
First time vacuum shopper. I live in a small studio apartment by myself, with some carpet and hard floors. Is this vacuum an overkill for me? Which vacuum would you guys recommend to me? I don’t usually have a whole lot to clean.
We own a dyson a like ours a lot. However in your situation I may look at something like this:
It’s rated well by consumer reports and considered one of their best buys. In my experience hoover doesn’t have the best longevity, however it should give you a good number of years of light use.
To be fair their quality could have improved in the last six years since we last owned a hoover.
If cost is not an issue I would lean towards the Dyson. It would take up the same space and do a mighty fine job of cleaning.
We have two Dyson’s. A standard upright DC?? similar to the DC40 and this one, the DC24. Our DC24 has required servicing twice; the beater motor burned out both times. We rarely us this vacuum these days otherwise, I suspect it would have been in for repair even more than it already has. The DC24 has very little suction while the standard upright does a pretty good job. At 200 bucks, the price isn’t bad and this is a very light and thus seemingly easy to operate cleaner which many would find appealing. Personally, I prefer one with more suction that actually performs the job you’re trying to accomplish; the upright performs this pretty well.
Also, I assume like any bag-less vacuum, keep in mind that these things need cleaning pretty often if you expect them to function properly. Unlike a bag vacuum, I would recommend emptying the canister about every time you use it. My wife hates the thing and does not like emptying it due to the resulting dust storm… so much for having HEPA filters as it gets you back each time you empty it, unless you wear a mask to do so. Again, this can be said for any bag-less system and is not unique to a Dyson.
I wrote a short review when this model was up for sale previously. Unfortunately, there are a pretty good number of Dyson groupies out there who seem to believe nothing can be wrong with a Dyson. So, take it for what it’s worth. If you have a small apartment and the need for a small, lightweight vacuum take presidence over the need for a powerful vacuum, this may be right for you. Otherwise, I’d stick with an upright or get a Royal http://www.royalvacuums.com/or Kirby http://www.kirby.com/. I don’t currently own either, but I want one!
I have had my Dyson for about four years and I love it. It is lightweight and easy to carry and does a very good job at vacuuming. I used to have a Kirby, which was very heavy, although it had wonderful suction. By far, this Dyson is the best, even though I had to pay full price for it, when I got it from Sears.
I don’t know why, but in my area there are always at least a half-dozen vacs at Goodwill or Salvation Army that are intact and working. You might try one (either upright or canister) for $10 and see what style you prefer…then invest in a new one if needed. Never seen a Dyson there, though!
I will not be home next week . Want to purchase the deal .Is there anyway to delay the shipping till next week ? Anyone know ?
This would be big-time overkill. Go to Wally world and get something for about $69. That’s all you need.
