Pros: This Dyson has tremendously powerful suction and easy, one touch cleanup of the cartridge/filters.
Cons: I can't think of any cons except to those who haven't tried it, except price.
I used to swear by Oreck for years but this machine is far and away the better choice and the absolute best to be found on the market!
I tried it out at a department store and then at a friend's who told me she's never seen anything like it and bought 2; one for upstairs and one for downstairs.
The suction is incredible and though I've had it for nearly a year..it has NEVER, ever clogged! It's held up very well despite dogs and cats and loads of dirt. Simple disposal and washable filters make this the only vaccuum I'll ever use from now on! There's nothing else to buy and all youy need for cleaning it is a little soap and water every few months.
Athough the initial cost may seem high to the uninitiated; but once they try the Dyson they'll want to own one. Once they own one they'll learn how study the construction is and how easy any clean up can be. The instructions are simple and complete. There is nothing like this vaccuum anywhere and the price is well worth it as the cleanup time is cut in half because it's such a highly efficient machine.
You can go from bare floors to plush carpet to berber without any adjustment and the attachment hgose cleans just as completely.
I've rarely raved about a cleaning product or machine but the DYSON deserves all the raves it gets! GREAT PRODUCT!!
