Dyson Hoover DC04


Dyson DC04 Our Dyson Hoover was a gift so I do not know the cost but I am sure it is worth the price. It is an upright Hoover and I really like the way the hose and attachments are all to hand on the body of the

Most expensive hover we have had great pick up but forever getting blocked. You need a degree to fix


Never paid so much for a hover. It constantly gets blocked. That would not be a problem but its impossible to do the work yourself. You really need to call out a Dyson engeer which then means waiting having the house a mess. Gone out and found a good...

Hose needs replacing regularly


I have had a DC04 for several years and find the suction quite good,I have had to replace the hose at least every year as it develops a split at the top.I am not sure if its a fault with the design of the hose or the way I am using it,although I fail...

I love this cleaner. I am constantly amazed every time I clean my floors how much it picks up even when I think the floors are not that grubby. So easy to use and empty. No fuss with bags etc and I always know my floors are much cleaner after a whizz...

Easy to use. Fantastic cleaning power. Easy to empty.

A bit bulky to get under furniture and into corners.

Sta rted falling to pieces at the end of warranty. I persisted with it for a few more years but found i was sending it back for repairs approximatly every 6 months. Continiously the turbine fan would fly apart disintergrating the casing

efficient when working (in one piece)

Constantly breakingOverpriced for the quality

Probably my most dissappointing purchase. After hearing other say how good the Dysons are I thought I couldn't go wrong. I hate this thing with a passion!

Good suction. Bright colour. Bagless.

Just about everything apart from the above. It cost too much, the attachments are knock off their perches while in uses, it doesn't clean the inch or so next to the skirting boards, it's clumsy to fit attachments and extract and retract hose, a...

it fixed rather than get a new, cheaper cleaner for the same amount as the repair as they guarantee what they do.

Good pickup (picks up dog hair), upright and bagless design.

It is too bulky to go under some furniture, which doesn't bother me, but you can purchase a separate attachment that is flatter (I think).

I love my upright dyson, it's easy to push, has heaps of different attachments so can do more than just the carpet, I have never had a problem other than things getting caught up under the head.

Great sucking power, it's bag less and comes with heaps of extra attachments.

Stuff get tangled inside the head, hard to get into corners and under furniture.

it's amazing what it picks up. I took it to my mum's who thought her carpet was clean!!! I detach the wand handle, put the hard floor tool on the end, and "sweep" my lino floors. The large brush tool is excellent for curtains as well. The onboard...

I love everything about this vacuum cleaner. It's the best thing since sliced bread. Not only does it look great, it works like nothing I have experienced prior to this vacuum cleaner. I classify my Dyson purchase as one of the best things I've bought...

There is nothing negative about it - it's a brilliant vacuum cleaner

Haven't found a better cleaner yet. More durable than they tended to be some years ago.
