I'm thinking of getting a new hoover and have decided on a Dyson. Just wanted to know if they're all they are cracked up to be?

I've got carpets and wood floors.

Dont get a Dyson .... very heavy and always break.

Unless you want to get to know the Dyson engineer who comes to your house to fix it ... leave well alone !!!

Is there a hoover you can recomend?

I love my dyson

Get an upright one.....mum got through 2 little ones in a year . We had wooden floors- it was defo the best hoover we've had....I'd never have another one. All my mates have them too and I don't think any of us have had a problem!!

I love my Dyson too, it's lasted much much longer than any of my other hoovers.

Dysons have hard floor tools you can buy which are great if you have wooden floors/laminate.

Have had no problems with my Dyson. Very happy with it.

Hated my dyson - it lives in the garage and only gets to clean the cars. Miele is the best make (even which agrees) and sooooo quiet after that stupid dyson beast.

Ive had my dyson for 4 years with no problems, is really good on our laminate floors

I got a bosch ergomaxx recently and I love it. Its really powerful and great on both carpets and wooden/tiled floors. Its also really light to pull around. We live in a flat so I cannot comment on how easy it is for stairs.
Which gave it a good write up, I gotit online for about £120 I think????

Does anyone know where I can get a dyson hard floor tool not on the dyson site?

i was pleased with my dyson to start with - then it seemed to lose suction but i couldn't find a blockage anywhere. then dyson sent an engineer round who did find a blockage in a bit of it i could never have accessed - now it works brilliantly again!!!

I love my Miele Cat & Dog.

I've got a Miele too and it's brilliant.

My dyson barely picks up anything. I would never buy another one.
