Having been made to hoover at my parents house on many occasion i have used their own dyson an earlier model to this one. When i recently purchased my new house my folks offered to get me some bits and pieces as a house warming gift one of which was a hoover.
We purchased the hoover from Tesco in store for £199.99 (can not believe hoovers were so expensive!!). The following is my review of the Dyson DC33.
Un-packaging the hoover was easy with very little assembly required, all of the peripherals such as extra parts were packaged seperatly and all fitted neatly to the main hoover itself. I was amazed at just how light the hoover was carrying it upstairs and out to my car it is certainly a lot lighter than you would expect when lifting it clean off the ground.
Hoovering is easy with the dyson the cable is long enough for me to vacume my entire ground floor and upstairs from one plug and it glides well on the floor surfaces i have tiles, laminate wood and carpet. The difference to a white carpet after hoovering is insane and judging by the amount of dust in the hoover compartment either i have a dirty floor or this thing is picking up dirt that is not really visible. The hoover comes with a long thing pipe that can connect to the telescopic hose to get into nooks and crannys, ideal for hoovering round the skirting boards in my house. Another extension piece is designed for hoovering fabrics such as under sofa cushions and again works really well. The sucktion on the Dyson is incredibly powerful when placing an extension hose against the parm of your hand and i would not advise it to be used on certain parts of the anatomy haha.
Hoovering my car with the Dyson is also easy the telescopic hose allows to get under car seats with ease and the pipe and fabirc extensions really came in handy in compact areas of my car.
I have even used my Dyson outside - this is probably not recommended by the manufacturer but i have hoovered my patio several times without any ill effects to the hoover itself.
Disposing of the dirt from the hoover is easy, there is a catch near the dust compartment that allows you to remove the dust compartment and pull a plunger like switch which releases the bottom of the compartment - be warned do this over a bin! I learnt the hard way and had to re-hoover the newly created mess!!
The Dyson comes with an excellent garuntee system covering the machine for free parts and labour for 5 years. I registered my Dyson directly on their website and all that is needed is the machine serial number and puchase date, there call center is then open 15 hours a day for queries.
A Dyson may seem expensive compared to some of the other hoover products on the market but i feel they are the best on offer to the home market, the garuntee system and the power of the hoover make this an excellent needed commodity to any home.
Summary: Best home hoovers on the market
