Loud in looks and loud in function.

Disadvantages: Very loud and not very robust
The Dyson range are certainly colourful and kind of funky. Never before had I ever considered buying a Vacuum cleaner based on looks but here I was under duress buying a purple and pink job lol. So much is claimed by Mr Dyson and co that I find the actual unit slightly disappointing in terms of performance and a poor show in terms of the cheap brittle plastic bits it's made from. Has some good design features like the tool/hose/handle set up which provides great long reach cleaning but not as good as I was expecting given the hype. It trades off the "no loss of suction" mantra but I lost all its suction in a single use when the motor filter completely clogged with fine dust out of my loft.
It definitely over promises and underperforms on all fronts; "much ado about nothing" is a term that springs to mind. The concept of it is fine; bagless cleaner with no loss of suction. But who really wants to be able to see all the dirt and dog hair it picks up festering away in the clear plastic tub. Bagless it may be but you still have to regularly clean out the tub and make sure it is COMPLETELY dry before you use it again or you'll have dust sticking all over it. Cleaning this filter and that filter is a real pain and must be done to maintain suction. Components have sharp edges so beware!
I find it very noisy and it tends to whistle upsetting the baby and the dog at every use. The clear tub lets you see what it does pick up but your eyes let you see what it doesn't. I find that it is no better than my old Hoover, hoover and my guess is that it will fall to pieces long before my old one rusts away to nothing in the dump.
I think that Dysons will be held in regard and remembered as the style icons they most definitely are for much longer than they will for their practicality and longevitym as Vacuum cleaners.
Definitely a case of style over function, inspite of the manufacturers claims. Not sure I'd buy another one unless they very much improve.
Summary: Style over function when you really need more function.
