“They've produced better”

Written on: 21/08/2013 by NigelMartin12 (2 reviews written)

Recently just purchased this new vacuum cleaner and I was slightly disappointed with it if I'm honest. I believe that the past products have been easier to use as well easier to store away. I believe that in future products they should look at how easy the product is to store away… Read Full Review

This machine is great at doing floors but total rubbish once you put ANY of the attachments on the hose. Virtually no suction at all. I still don't know why I haven't written to Dyson to complain as their advertising specifically says it doesn't loose power. RUBBISH.

“All Style and no Substance”

Written on: 27/07/2012 by thatmanfez (1 review written)

It's a good looking machine and worked well for the first week or so but then it started to fall apart in front of our eyes. Made at the cheapest unit price the Dyson ball is NOT designed to last, the bottom filter falls out, the suction nozzle keeps on releasing itself, the filters constantly block, all the plastic bits crack off, basically it looks good but is built very badly - DON'T BUY ONE!… Read Full Review

See my last review too but I forgot to add that it is difficult to manoeuvre and very heavy to lift up the stairs.

“Negative 5 out of 5”

Written on: 13/06/2012 by Mildred67 (1 review written)

Let me be blunt, if you like elevated blood pressure and endless hours of frustration, then the DC15 is for you. Other than that, it would have to be one of the worst vacuum cleaners ever designed. Forget the hype, there is really nothing good about this cleaner once it's out of the pristine environment of the shop demonstration area. After several months, the extendible hose at the back starting getting harder and harder to extract because the design is so bad that any dust or muck inside… Read Full Review

“Great vacuum - it really sucks!”

Written on: 30/05/2012 by mylostylo (13 reviews written)

I am a big fan of Dyson - anyone who can take a mundane cleaning devise and make it sexy deserves all the suck-sess this company has achieved. I have had 2 dyson cleaners and their products just seem to get better every time. The TC15 is another goodie and long may it last (given hoe expensive it is!) Next on my list is their little hand-held hoover. It's spaceage design would make Buck Rogers go weak at the knees… Read Full Review

“Good product. Not as good as the hype though”

Written on: 06/10/2011 by Nashie (2 reviews written)

I bought this thinking that it was going to reduce my vacuuming time considerably. I thought that I wouldn't have to go over areas twice for example like my previous vacuum cleaner. It did make lighter work of the daily chore yet, it still left some crumbs & other things remaining which still required going over the top of again. I thought for the price that It was going to be a little better is all. Overall I am satisfied yet not not thrilled… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/03/2011

please don't buy it, it's a waste of money, my husband still moans at me for buying it, as I'm pregnant he does the hoovering. I'ts heavy, has soo many tacky bits you have to clean, one sponge bit you have to clean which we have recently discovered, you have to be an engineer to work out all the bits you have to clean. It was expensive, I would have made my life easier by just getting a simple hoover, that is easy to clean and lightweight. I wish I had not bought it, cause it was expensive and… Read Full Review

If you can get the hose attachment out, the dyson machine attaches itself to your leg as you use the hose attachment. Have fought this machine as i use it and i would never recommend it to anyone. The only good thing? I havent bought it, I was using someone elses and it made my blood boil!!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2010

Purchased this machine less than four years ago, and the motor has burned out.
The cost of a new motor is £60 and PCB board is £40 +VAT, and labour so its not really worth repairing.

Would have expected the machine to have lasted longer.

However have no complaints regarding the function of the machine.

Have to decide on a replacement… Read Full Review

very disappointed, paid top dollar here in France 399euros 2yrs ago, compared to my DC01 its rubbish, I keep it for upstairs as my other is too heavy to lift upstairs. It won't even pick up a piece of cotton. I suffer from arthritis severely and was relying on this product to make life easier instead of more difficult.........shame… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/03/2010

I spend more time with a screwdriver than I do hoovering. To be honest you would need some qualifications in electrical repairs and a great deal of patience with this machine. Yes the ball helps you whizz around great! Then you spend another hour taking the bloody thing apart to clean and unblock often resulting in all the hoovered dust ending on the floor againn. I then get my old hoover out to hoover it up, A complete disgrace, I want my money back… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/05/2008

I am selling this monster by the name of DC15 The Ball All Floors at a cut rate and buying the Dyson canister. Also the hose is awful--not long enough by far, so that when you're trying to use a floor attachment you have to bend over, plus the fact that the hose is more like a sling shot! And the floor attachment, which I bought separately, is awful!… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2008 by debsmagic (1 review written)

The coolest hoover ever - keeps carpets looking like new. My carpets are old and I find I don't even need to get them shampooed as the Dyson does such a fab job. Consistent suction - even after owning mine for a few years now I find the performance is just as good as the day I bought it. Absolutely worth every penny! It picks up every bit of cat hair - my cat has hair over one inch long - she is long haired and black and all my carpets are cream/off white. The cat hair is not a problem to me at… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2008 by bobbin (1 review written)

The Dyson DC15 "The Ball" seems pretty much to be a gimmick, it is heavy (very heavy), loud (very loud) when you use the front brush. I loved the "lifts the carpet from the floorboards" effect of the older Dyson models, but this doesn't quite match the performance. To get this thing around the house you'll need to be a weight lifter.
The machine is great from under the beds due to the design of the front brush. Overall there are better Dysons out there for much less money… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/12/2007 by babysham (1 review written)

Have had 3 Dysons now, the latest being this one with the ball and one of the most expensive and I can say with confidence that Dyson has had the last of my money. Don't believe the hype about how a Dyson doesn't lose suction after about 6 weeks of sucking up the carpet. They suddenly die then you are stuck with a vacuum that won't even pick up paper until you bite the bullet and write off the latest one. Fell for it 3 times, no more… Read Full Review
