Buy a Dyson

After saving up for a few paychecks, we finally bought a Dyson. When we got it home, we ran the old upright over our living room rug and then swept it again with our new vacuum. Here is the result of the second pass (the first with the Dyson):

That totally creeped me out. How the heck did we ever get by without one of these?

Money well spent, in my book.

yer I like the Dyson. Can get a bit messy when emptying it though.

We recently shelled out the cash for one too. Same model as yours. I love it. And I have to disagree about the messy emptying. That is one of the things I like best about it. With our old Dirt Devil I had to take it outside take a plastic shopping bag and hold it tight around the container dump the dirt that would come out on its own, then pull out the filter scrape the dirt off it. Then spend 10 minutes banging on the filter to get the dirt out of it. There was always a huge mess all over me, my yard, and depending on the wind, my house.

With the Dyson, I take off the canister, hold it over my trash can and pull a trigger. BANG. its done.

I gotta agree with MTB, I find the canister quite easy to empty.

This product is by far the best thing to come out of Britain since Nici Sterling.

Now my fantasy world will consist of a dishwasher and a Dyson!

I have been wanting one of those really bad. My current vac sucks... er... rather doesn't suck... therein lies the problem.

Maybe I'll get one come tax-return time. I bet my allergies will improve.

Y'all re all delusional. The cannister Electrolux is what it's all about. I have a 70s model and an 80s model. I'm hoping one dies so I can justify a $1500 purchase of the Lux. They are the greatest vacuums ever!

Electrolux?

Maybe you can put on some Perry Como on the phonograph, have a Swanson TV Dinner, and complain about what LBJ is doing to the country while you are at it. :P

After reading your post and doing some research, I went out the purchased one. I just unboxed it, but haven't taken it out for a spin yet.

We also have an upright Hoover that is bagless and it collects the most interesting fuzzwads like the Dyson.

Do not scoff at the Electrolux. Mom used to have one and I swear it cleaned my neighbors carpets as it cleaned ours. I also used to the hose to be able to listen to Richard Nixon's resignation speech while Mom had the noisy rented carpet cleaner running. True story.

My sister bought a Dyson. She has 2 dogs and 2 cats living in the house. It's little motor burned up by the time she got upstairs. They just gave her her money back because a Dyson cannot take much hair.

Forgot to say, I went to self-propelled upright bagged with HEPA filtration. I can do the whole house more than once without changing any cups.
