They probably become more reliable when they moved the factory from the UK to Asia :ph34r:

Tell that to a friend of mine who runs a electrical retail business. He says 70% of his repairs are Dysons and he reckons they are a load of s**t. I`m sure Which Magazine did a survey awhile back where they claimed Dysons were more likely to breakdown than other makes. Most of their repairs are carried out by the retailers even under guarantee. The parts are expensive and repairs normally require a replacement module.

Reliable - what a laugh. Dyson is truly out of touch. We've had 2, both of which were appaulling. A freind threw his out the window.

Classic case of what happens when academics try and engineer.

These machines are too complex and too liable to breakdowns. All sorts of irritations that the overly clever academics overlooked. Typical - probably tested by scientific muppets that dont actualy hoover at home - only in sterile 'perfect' laboritory conditions.

Hope he goes t1ts - up.

We considered a Dyson but thought they were overpriced so bought an almost identically built Panasonic for 56 quid and its been perfect. Made in China, of course! When Dyson start building a better product in a cheap labour country we can expect them to sell for the same prices as Pansonic et. al.

IMHO th ereason they sold well here for awhile was because they were so EXPENSIVE. A sort of status symbol much like the Kirby used to be--1000 quid--but at least they were made of metal and lasted as long as a parrot.

I've got one - wouldn't buy another one.
