Disadvantages: still heavy in my opinion
We bought this Dyson recently to live in our new holiday home. I was a little hesitant to buy such an expensive item but my husband is the kind of person who says you should pay more so it won't let you down and our experiences of Dyson is that this is very true. I am glad that we bought it, it definitely works extremely well and is well worth the money we paid for it.
Dyson is well known for having very good quality vacuum cleaners with amazing new technology. We have always been very pleased with their products when we have used them.
This Dyson has a longer hose to others so that you are able to reach into more awkward/higher up places than with the other models. I have found that this has been really useful. With the model we have at home it can be difficult to get to particular areas without the machine really pulling and feeling as though it's going to fall over so this extra 10cm in length really makes all the difference.
It weighs 8kg which I still think is quite cumbersome and a lot but it is lighter than the model we have at home. I do think the actual shape and nature of the machine in general can make it seem heavier as it is quite an awkward product to carry up stairs and suchlike. Dyson promote this product as being 'light weight'. I would never describe it as being light, but everything is comparative.
Dyson prides itself on not having a bag so you don't have to mess around with emptying bags which can get messy and awkward. You are able to see when the machine is getting full as the dirt is sucked up into the body of the machine which is see-through. It isn't very nice being able to see all the dirt but at least you can see with ease whether you need to empty it or not. Emptying it is easy, a press of a button and you can just get the part out and tip it into the bin and then it slots back into place easily. I really like this feature of Dysons. I could never go back to a vacuum with a bag again.
When I push this around I find it is easy to navigate and the 'foot' of it is quite narrow so it's easier to get into the corners and awkward places than it is with other machines. It does lift up dirt with ease, it amazes me how much it picks up. We own a dog so we have quite a lot of dog hairs in the carpet but this machine picks them up well even out of our long haired carpets. It is designed to work on all floor types and I do find that it is just as efficient on all surfaces whether it's our lino, short carpets or long carpets it will suck up dirt and grit.
The various hoover tools attach to the machine body and are easy to take on and off. I find that the brush which they call 'stubborn dirt brush' which I think you are meant to use on things like mud on the floor works really well on soft fabrics like the sofa.
I really rate this machine as it does work well. It cost us £190 although I know it can cost more than this but we were able to get it whilst it was on sale. This is quite a lot to pay but Dyson do cover you with a 5 year guranantee and this machine will never lose it's suction so you are likely to have it for many, many years.
Very pleased with this machine and do recommend it. Always look around though as you may find it on offer and could save money (we saved £60)!
Summary: really good
