Advantages: When you see how much dirt collects in the cylinder you realise how much was in your carpet!
Disadvantages: Expensive filters and fiddly to clean
Just before Christmas I was lucky enough to win a Dyson DC02 cylinder cleaner. Although initially we were very impressed with it, a few things have since become slightly annoying.
1)The filters are expensive (about £6.00 for two) and as the machine has two filters that's obviously 6 quid every couple of months!
2)The cylinder that collects the dust etc fills up really quickly and needs emptying every couple of days.
3)The cylinder has a conical piece that attracts the dust and this needs to be properly cleaned by wiping with water which is quite time consuming.
Having said all this, we are generally quite pleased with it. We have three cats and so we decided to invest in a special head which claims to remove pet hairs. This cost us £35 but has been worth its' weght in gold. Overall I would recommend the Dyson Dco2, but will definitely be interested if they bring out a filterless model!
