V31613 - Dyson DC33 Upright Vac with Accessories
I bought this in October 2012. Yesterday 2/10/13 I had to take it to a repair shop because the clutch is bad. It is under warranty but it isn't very reassuring to have a vac break this soon.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT ALL THE HYPE IS ABOUT. I HAVE HAD THIS VAC FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AND USE IT EVERY-OTHER DAY. WORKS GREAT!!!!! THE ACCESSORIES ARE GREAT AND EASY TO USE. IT'S SOO EASY TO USE I WOULD BUY IT FOR MY GRANDMOTHER.
Bought the Dyson 33 and I found it to be a terrible vacuum. It will not clean low pile carpets like runners, it makes a very loud noise which I understand it’s a clutch to prevent damage to it. The wand is a poor design and awkward to use. They also lied in the description and claim it has no filters or belts to replace. I was cleaning the brushes and found a belt which drives the brush. This is false advertisement. Also the washable filters will need to be replaced at some point if the flimsy thing lasts long enough. I would not recommend this to anyone. They say Dyson is top of the line, not by this model. I had a Hoover for 8 years that could outperform it no problem, which I may ask my daughter for it back. I could have bought two of the hoovers at that price.
This seemed like a great deal, and the girl demonstrating it makes it seem easy to handle.. well, 1st of all this is the 2nd Dyson I am returning.. and when I FINALLY got it together, which on air was a snap, by the time I vacumed my living room, I was totally EXHAUSTED..The attachment for dusting VERY cumbersome to attach, my Hoover NANO Cyclonic action which I got at Wal-Mart for $80.00 IS easy to use, lightweight, and sucked up MORE than the "dyson"...
Best Vacuum Ever Owned
I read all the negative reviews but bought it anyway. I'm so glad I did. The suction power is incredible and it's easy to operate. This is the best vacuum I've ever owned!
Sending it back
The suction is great. I like the idea of not having to purchase bags or filters. The tools are the reason I am returning. The hose keeps curling up and I find myself crouching down to accomodate the hose returning to the macihine. It is so difficult to use the extension arm to get under things because you are dragging the rest of the machine behind you and fighting with the hose. I am going back to my Miele.
HOSE TOO TIGHT!
I am not pleased after only one use. The hose is so tight it is a strain to attempt to ue the floor attachment or any of the others for that matter. Because of the tight coiled hose, it causes the vacuum to stay within a foot of the machine so it is constantly in the way and hitting the back of my feet. Maybe it will loosen over time but in the meantime it is awful. For just an upright it is good, great suction but if you want it for the attachments, forget it. If it wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg to return it I would. Sorry...
Okay, I have two little boys and I vacuum 2x a day. I got this because I was tired of picking up little pieces of torn paper, lint, crushed up crackers, whatever it may be because my old vacuum wouldn't pick it up. I got this home and put it together in seconds. I vacuumed my living room and the canister began to fill up, you should SEE how much this thing sucks up, lint, dirt, hair, etc. I was SHOCKED. I had vacuumed an hour prior and you'd never know it with seeing how much crud there was in this Dyson canister!! I never thought in my life I'd spend $300 on a vacuum, but it's worth every penny. Tried a few of the attachments and they work like a charm! The hose is a little tight but hopefully that'll loosen overtime! I've had my eye on a Dyson for years and I'm glad I finally made this purchase! Lovin the clean "lines" in my carpet!!
Take the chance and purchase this vacuum! Every single attachment is worth every penny spent. This vacuum picks up stuff I could not believe was in my carpets. And you will empty it often....every when you think you got everything....really!! I'm serious.
Love, Love This Vacuum!
You wouldn't believe what this machine picks up! I've had it for 3 months and I keep saying, "Why didn't I purchase this sooner". I bought it on easy pay
Difficult to Manipulate
I've had my Dyson for over 6 months but today I tried to use it with the hose attachment. The hose is very tight and although the unit stays upright and follows, I can't get the hose loose and have to use both hands, one to glide the vac around and one to keep the hose stretched out. If anyone can assist me, I would appreciate it. The video never shows the status of the unit when she is cleaning above the floor. Surely there is something I don't know. It's an awesome vac for suction, but I only gave it 4 stars.
I LOVE MY DYSON
THIS IS THE BEST VACUUM. IT MAKES YOUR CARPET LOOK GREAT. I USED IT AFTER I HAD USED MY OLD VACUUM CLEANER. MY DYSON PICKED UP SO MUCH DIRT IT WAS LIKE I NEVER VACUUMED AT ALL. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
