Advantages: Suction power, great tools, bagless, 5 year guarantee.
Disadvantages: Storage method, static.
I have been using Dyson's 1400 watt DC19 vacuum cleaner for about a year now. It is without doubt a superb product, but there are still a few things that could be improved with the design.
I tried out several other brands of compact vacuum cleaner before buying this model and always ended up taking them back. None of them had the DC19's suction power.
The DC19 is light (17.75lbs) and easily manoeuvrable. It's four tools include a flat head attachment, which is great for reaching under cupboards and beds.
Like other Dyson cleaners, it is bagless and easy to empty. Tapping the clear cannister seems to remove most of the dirt that has been collected. More stubborn marks can be removed by wiping with a damp cloth.
The DC19 also has a five year guarantee and unlike many brands, Dyson provides a user friendly online facility which helps solve simple fault-finding issues that can arise.
Despite the cleaner's many positive features, it does have some draw backs. When stored, the flat head attachment has to be seated in a relatively flimsy plastic slot. (I believe Dyson's more expensive 'stowaway' model resolves this issue.)
I have also had problems with the amount of static generated by the cleaner when in use. After receiving numerous static shocks, I called out a Dyson engineer (who visited free of charge) to take a look at my machine. But he was unable to identify any particular problem.
Despite these minor flaws I highly recommend the DC19. It's a quiet, good-looking machine that does the job.
Thanks for reading and rating my review.
Summary: A good product. Well worth the extra cost.
