Re: TSV Vacuum Best seller? Really?

We have both a Shark and a Dyson.  We previously had one of the big, bulky Dysons.  I originally bought a corded Shark becasue I didn't like how the Dyson would blow lightweight things like cat hair around the bare floors instead of sucking it up.  I am much happier with the Shark for bare floors, but we still used the Dyson for carpet, or should I say I used the older Dyson on the carpet. 

 

DH really wanted one of the cordless Dysons, so we finally bought one of those.  It's a win for me because now DH vacuums the carpet. It's not without it's issues though.  The filter seems to get clogged a lot and more and more frequently and the hopper doesn't hold much debris although the hopper for the Shark doesn't hold much either.  But, there's a lot more cat hair in the carpet.  

 

I really want to say something about that Dyson challenge though.  Yeah, I did it and it worked.  BUT, then I decided to try it in reverse in another location, and guess what?  Got dirt with the old machine following the new Dyson.  Hmmmm.

Re: TSV Vacuum Best seller? Really?

Huh... not sure why there is so much hate about Dyson in this thread. I own two Dysons and love them both so much. The first is a corded regular size vaccum that is a beast at picking up literally anything, especially from carpet/rugs. And two years ago I bought the stick cordless one and I use that one multiple times a day in the kitchen area. Basically any time my kids eat, I have to do a quick vaccum afterwards. Quality has been great on both with no issues. I did not purchase either from QVC.

I have had two Dyson vacs. Onecorded, and one cordless. I lobe them both. My cordless is still going strong five years later. I had a Shark as well and I liked it well enough. I have several other Dyson items and am happy with them.

 

If you don't like the price point fine but no need to bash the brand.

I didn't see this thread as bashing the brand. It was more that they were bashing QVC for their sales spiel.  I also didn't think most of the posts bashed the brand either.
