Dyson DC01 = A design I so want to love....


Item: Dyson DC01 Vacuum Cleaner I bought my first Dyson in around 1994 and at the time I believe it cost £279.00 as I had the upgraded HEPA system, which also meant I had a limited edition colour. At the time Dyson cleaners had been receiving rave...

Dyson DC01 - A Great Leap Sideways


When we went looking for a new "hoover" we knew what we were looking for. Compared to the old one, we wanted it to be more powerful, quieter, cleaner, lighter, more reliable, cheaper to buy and easier to use. Unfortunately, the DC01 turned out to be...

Dyson DC01 : If I have to unblock that pipe one more time....!


I bought my Dyson nearly 8 years ago. It is the original DC01 model, and I got it through distribution for the paltry sum of 140, when they were still 200+ in the shops. For the first few months, we got on brilliantly. The suction was fantastic, and it...

Dyson DC01 : 5127 Prototypes Later

Dyson DC01 : The dogs dangly bits and hair as well!!


Before you read the rest of this (which still applies) I wanted to tell you I now have a DC07 which is just as good and has overcome the minor problems of the original models. I presume the DC14 etc also have new features such as completely removable...

Dyson DC01 : Oh Dear Dyson, bring back the bag


Rave reviews and that funky styling led me to shell out close on 200 for a Dyson, but oh what a let-down. OK, so there are no bags to change, but filters need to be replaced every month or so or the suction disappears up its own pipe and then there...

Dyson DC01 : It sucks and magically swallows


Right, once you have established that this indeed is the right area for the opinion I am about to write, you may relax and feel relieved that it is not to do with any Anne Summers products, and that I have not been hit by temporary insanity. This is...

Dyson DC01 : The Queen of Vacuum Cleaners!


This bagless mean machine leaves no stone unturned, its suction power makes sure of that, any dust and dirt on the carpet, curtains, sofa etc.. will be collected with force into the Dyson vacuum. If you think your carpet is clean then think again. I...

Dyson DC01 : Dyson a Force To Be Reckoned With


The DC01 was one of the first dyson products on the market, I bought mine about 4 years ago as I had heard so much about them and we do tend to get through an awful lot of vacums in our house, Dyson are now on the DC07 model but so far the 01 has...
