So I've had with out crappy vac, it has to be emptied once per room and we only live in a 2 bedroom unit.

I'm thinking to bite the bullet and get a Dyson. I probably want the cheaper one which is the DC29 http://www.harveynorman.com.au/dyson-dc-mu...ustomer-reviews

Can anyone make any final recommendations or reviews? Is there a cheap place online I can buy it from? I haven't even tested it out but have heard so many good things.

Our home is 95% cream carpet  dry.gif Which as you can imagine makes things ├╝ber fun with mr busy body toddler. The kitchen is tiled.

Thanks

We have one, it's absolutely fab. We got ours as a wedding present from my parents 10 years ago and it's still powering on. You'll never look back original.gif I don't think the particular model really matters much, they all work the same.

We have a old crappy carpet and our vacuum is awesome! Our carpet feels much nicer now so i think worth every cent.

We got the dyson allergy upright for $699 from good guys.
$718 at masters you can get the upright animal.

Both the cheapest prices i found.

Lol yep I told DP that this is what is happening and he can suck it up, suprisingly he said yes buy a vac but I don't  think he knows it cost over $500 lol  ph34r.gif

We just got a windfall of money which inevitability will be spent on a) useless small things like eating nice bought lunches or b) I'll spend it on something we actually need.

I find if I don't justify myself he is much more accepting, the guilt lays in the justification  wink.gif

The difference between some models is the attachments included so you can get the basic model and only buy the extra attachments if you really need them. You can add to the later.

The Dyson website is good for comparing models and then google for the best price on the model you decide on.

Awesome. Do you know which one is decent out of the lower price dysons?

We have an upright DC24 .

Love it.

I have an equivalent dyson which is 7years old.  Excellent.  Been so happy with it.  Easy to empty & suction is good.  We only got the basic model years ago for around $500.
We actually just bought one of the long handled, battery powered dysons aswell for $400 from Masters. After years of deliberation we finally did it.  And it's brilliant as well.  We actually have the motorised head or pet hair collector on this one which is really good.   We have two toddlers and a 5 bedroom house,  so we definitely need the full vacuum,  but the handheld one is excellent - more convenient and I'd probably just use it all the time if I only had 2 bedrooms.

I love my dyson after blowing up 2 vacs in a year I decided to bite the bullet and get one. Have had it for a couple of years and its amazing. My son suffers from allergies and I find they have also improved.

Try Costco? If they stock the one you're after they're usually cheaper by a long shot.

Also how do I chose between an upright or one that rolls along the floor, are there any real differences?

So far I have found http://www.alwaysonsale.com.au/aos/public/...p;Search=Search nice and cheap, haven't checked shipping yet though.

We have one, I absolutely love it and would never use any other brands of vacuums now.

We have a mainly carpeted home and when we first used it we were shocked how much dirt it picked up.  

I thought our carpets were clean, but they were not Dyson clean!! biggrin.gif

Same

Advised DP if I got a Dyson, he would be getting a Victa lawnmower.

And mowing might prove tricky given where it would be located.

A poor man's ride on.

Alright ladies I have found 2 bargins:

http://cheapbargains.com.au/catalog/produc...a-upright-p-423

http://cheapbargains.com.au/catalog/produc...r-barrel-p-1763

I don't knwo which to choose, what's do you think would be best for a primarily carpeted unit?



#21 noonehere

Posted 06 December 2012 - 08:20 PM

For mostly carpets i would go a bigger barrel one (less emptying) if getting a pull along i would wake sure you get one with the rotating brush. It gets a hell of a lot more up.

#22 BlueUnicorn

Posted 06 December 2012 - 08:34 PM

We have the pull along one, its heaps easier to manoeuvre into corners and under tables/ beds etc than my mums upright dyson.



#23 au*lit

Posted 06 December 2012 - 08:53 PM

We've had a Dyson for a few years. I want to love it but I just can't. It's heavy, awkward and hard to manoeuvre. It's constantly getting stuck in corners or on furniture. And the motorised head for carpets doesn't fit under the couch. It gives me the s***s.

#24 Mung bean

Posted 06 December 2012 - 09:26 PM

I ended up going for the upright original.gif

#25 Mung bean

Posted 06 December 2012 - 09:36 PM

I should also add that it was only $540 inc shipping for the DC 24 HEPA from cheapbargins.com.au original.gif
