I had seen the Dyson DC 11 advertised many times and appreciated the idea of ease of use, minimal screws, etc. and tremendous suction. I believe that was the biggest attraction, the suction. Well, it worked wonderfully for less than 1 month. The suction that was advertised was still there but the carpet beaters could take no resistance before they stopped spinning. I took it to a vacuum cleaner repair company, who advertised working on Dyson products in Cleveland Heights. They themselves stated… Read Full Review

The DC11 is not sold in Canada AFAIK. I bought mine on eBay a few years ago because I was determined to have one. Overall I am both pleased and disappointed.
THE GOOD: machine is light, easy to carry with good handles, excellent suction, no bags to buy, easy to clean (if you don't like washing filters occasionally buy a bag vacuum), not difficult to clip the wand, hose and power head on for storage, easy to see when it needs emptying.
THE BAD: plastic collar on wand extension broke, plastic… Read Full Review

This Dyson DC11 Telescope is a bulky badly designed machine. It looks the part, but is just too bulky to be of any real use, the reason all other vacume cleaner hoses and floor attatchments look the same is it really is the best design… Read Full Review

This has got to be the most useless vacuum/suction cleaner going. If you have got a brush and shovel then save your money. It is absolutely useless when used on any kind of carpet. Dyson salespeople should advise potential purchasers that if carpets are the main floor covering to be cleaned the buyer would be better off buying an upright cleaner similar to the dc7.
Very, very disappointing… Read Full Review

I do not recommend the DC11. After less than a year the suction all but disappeared. All Dyson could suggest was a new powered head which they provided quickly and for free, but with no effect… Read Full Review

Dyson DC11 Telescope is noisy and awkward to use and is not a patch on the DC5 which was owned previously. Have spent more time unblocking than actually using and have given up and use an ordinary floor brush instead… Read Full Review

I bought this machine after believing all the hype about suction taking half the time to vacuum. Ha! What a load of rubbish. Whereas I can't fault it for dust, but as for picking up bits of fluff, cotton etc. from those annoying bedroom carpets it is useless. I end up getting down on my hands and knees picking them up before I vacuum taking a 5 minute job to a 20 minute job. Not much point having a vacuum, may as well use a dustpan and brush. Sometimes find myself vacuuming, putting the machine… Read Full Review

I have two of these and they are both used daily in my B&B business, they are both over two years old, and still going strong.
One of the turbo heads stopped spinning, I called Dyson and they sent a replacement with no quibble.
I wash the filters once week and at the same time I flush the dust collector out with a garden hose, this keeps the machine sucking at peek power.
The only thing that does need improving is some of the edges need rounding off, as you're pulling the vacuum along it… Read Full Review

I've owned this machine for just over two years and wouldn't you know, as soon as the warranty gave out, so did the plastic cuff that holds the extending wand together.
We all know what a pain it is putting this thing together and then taking it apart to store (after having to vacuum and completely clean the machine afterwards) so I don't need to touch on that point any further.
That aside, it does an amazing job of cleaning. But it is extremely heavy to lug up and down stairs. The power head… Read Full Review

The Dyson DC11 Telescope vacuum cleaner is a pain to use. The telescope function is really annoying!
The filter needs constant cleaning to enable even poor pick up performance.
Massive hype and price for very poor, painful performance… Read Full Review

Before I give my opinion on this Dyson DC11, I just want to share my purchasing experience because I believe that the way a company does business can reflect on the product and certainly on the purchasing decision itself, even if it's just so that you don't fall for the same particular case of false advertising as I did. Although I bought this vacuum online in Spain, a company like Dyson should still uphold a certain standard no matter where they do business.
When I bought my DC11, Dyson… Read Full Review

I bought this dyson having had a number of inefficient cleaners and i'm afraid i believed the hype. I think i was happy the first time i used it, then it went seriously down hill. The claim that there will never be any loss of suction? Well i guess it's right - there was never any real suction to lose. It won't pick up a crumb - having spent an eternity going over the same area, the cleaner gave in first - manged to pick up a peanut, only to spit it out when the power was turned off. My husband… Read Full Review

It's really heavy and big
The Dyson DC11 Telescope doesnt pick up dirt on carpets wouldnt pick up a thread.
the telescope is really tedious and time consuming to open and close.
I would not recommend at all.
Other Dyson vacuums are much better… Read Full Review

This DC11 Telescope is the best Dyson we have had yet and between myself and my Mum and Brother weve tried most that have been released this has 275 airwatts of power as opposed to many others being just over 100 such as vax etc..Dyson Ball 140 and so on the only one to match its power is the DC o7 upright
With Currys and others now offering great prices on thge DC11 gn which is the peppermint green version at just under £180.00 it is exceptional quality and performance for the money.
This DC11… Read Full Review

The Dyson DC11 Telescope floor unit has a yellow big button that you push to turn the brushes off. It won't stay down so the brushes start up all the time on a bare floor. Bad design I think, but Dyson are sending me a new floor unit for the vacuum cleaner, which should work for a while.
When it too fails, I can rig the old floor unit so the brushes stay off all the time by taking the brushes off the unit (disassembling the unit)… Read Full Review
