Advantages: Great cleaning
About two years ago we decided to invest in an expensive Dyson DC03, mainly beacuse I suffer from house mite and pet hair allergies. I have never been so pleased with a product!
Having three dogs, there is usually quite a bit of hair in the carpets, which past vaccum cleaners have not removed. I always used to be down on my hands and knees with a dog brush to get them up. The Dyson does it for me, cutting right down on house work time (yippee!)
The filters do seem to have helped my allergies, so I am also pleased with it on that score.
The Dyson is not perfect, although when we bought it, it was a relatively new model, so maybe teething problems have now been ironed out.
Main problems with it are that it is very heavy, the cylinder is quite narrow and gets quickly full, and also when using the attatchments, if the Dyson is standing on a fairly thick carpet, it has a tendency to fall over.
Main advantages are the super cleaning power, great filters, no bags and easy emptying of cylinder.
