Advantages: Great cleaning power, washable filter
Disadvantages: A bit tricky to manoever
We recently purchased this hoover, after our last hoover (a Dyson we had for almost 10 years) finally packed up. Considering the length of time we had our previous dyson, and the excellent cleaning power it had there was no other choice when it came to the brand of hoover we would buy again.
We decided to keep with a cylinder hoover, as my Mum has the strong belief that there is a bigger suction vent, therefore it picks up more dirt and makes for a more effective clean of your carpets. After using an upright hoover at uni, I would have to agree however they are not as easy to store away as uprights.
I noticed the design of the DC19T2 had varied alot from our previous model. Firstly, it was pink! Secondly, the on/off button is marked with a red button, separate to the uncord switch which in the previous model I sometimes would hit the wrong one, giving me the fright of my life when it suddenly turned itself on again!
Gone is the fold-down lid with all your tools/hoover accessories. Instead, all the attachments clip onto the back of the hoover which so far hasn't caused us any problems and makes for a smaller hoover.
One dislike I have with this hoover, is the fact that the hose is only partially flexible, as it contains a solid plastic coating from the handle until about halfway down. I'm not sure why they did this, other than for storage perhaps, as it's quite annoying when your trying to go around corners, or when transporting the hoover through a door. I also find you need to extent the cord a little more because of this.
In terms of the noise factor, I would say this hoover is fairly average. It's not a quiet hum, nor is it a motorbike engine. As with many of the Dyson hoovers, it is also bagless and you can see the contents clearly so you know how much you have picked up and when it needs emptying. The hoover is also really easy to empty, and requires a press of a button and then it should lift right out. Although I must admit I tend to leave this job up to my Mum on most occasions!
Perhaps most importantly, the performance of this hoover is really impressive. As a design student I'm usually cutting and sticking alot, therefore making mess wherever I go and so a hoover such as this is superb at picking up even the smallest of speckles out of my carpet. It leaves our carpets and floors looking clean, and there is always a very noticeable difference before and after use.
At around £200, it certainly is a pricey investment. However for the sake of dust mite reduction and the really effective cleaning properties this hoover has, it's a worthy investment for your home. I know we will certainly continue to buy Dyson in the future as it's never let us down before. With a 10 year life span to look forward to, this equates to £20 a year on a really outstanding hoover, and one me and my Mum would recommend!
Summary: A superb hoover that will last the test of time
