Okay, how does this work?
"Easy Empty Bin – Button controlled system allows for a clean and hygienic way to discard dust and dirt it traps."
When emptying the bin what prevents the dust, pollen, dander, bacteria, viruses, nano particles etc. from escaping. If you dump it in a bag how would you extract the bin and close the bag without ending with a blast of the above in your face. Does it have to be emptied outside and then you wash your clothes?

Just noticed I have 1 quality post. I wish I knew which one that was so I could have it suitably printed, embossed, laminated then framed.

although you could probably get better at the same price.

We have owned a Dyson for 4 years now. It was a hand-me down from a friend who bought a new one (she had lost a gasket which I had to replace). Best vacuum that I have ever come across. One downside that I have found is that if you need a part for it, they have to be ordered from England and the shipping time takes at a minimum of 3 weeks. Other than that, best brand on the market as far as i am concerned. Cleans up great after 3 kids, 2 cats and a dog.

It empties from the bottom, you push the button and the bottom lid swings open. I don't recommend holding over the trash can, instead you need to put it down close to the bottom before releasing the button.

I have the animal model of Dyson and it does a great job of cleaning up the messes made by my 6-year-old and the hair left behind by my sheltie. Not as easy to use on stairs as they claim, but I've dealt with much worse. As for emptying the dust bin, just hold a plastic shopping bag over the bottom of it, press the button, give it a little shake, and then slowly lift the bin off the bag. No mess or dust cloud unless you have a hole in your plastic bag or drop the bag. Also very easy to remove and clean the brushes.

I own both, and used my Rainbow for years. It did a great job, but I got tired of cleaning it all the time. I LOVE my Dyson - it does have a high-pitched whine, but cleans very well. I have mostly hardwood floors, and it goes from hardwood to the area rugs flawlessly. My favorite thing is the way the canister empties; it has a button that unlatches the bottom of the canister, dumping it precisely in the trash can. Rainbows are fine if you don't mind taking them apart and cleaning them every single time you use them. I wish I'd purchased a Dyson long ago. I bought mine on Woot last year. I have not used the Dyson Ball, but have no problem with my 4-wheeled one.

I love woot, but seriously? You have a very loyal and large nerd customer base, so how do you justify selling so much damn cleaning equipment? I'm not going to get excited about cleaning even if the gutter cleaner is remote controlled; especially not if it's a vacuum cleaner that sits on a ball and costs as much as a television, or a lot of drugs. I'll stick with my 50 dollar vacuum cleaner and spend the rest of the money on anything else.

If you can justify this kind of money for a vacuum cleaner, you shouldn't be cleaning your own house in the first place.

This can be accomplished without blowback and inhalation of all the above particulates? I envision a cloud exemplifying "brownian motion" above the receptacle upon emptying the bin and a subsequent smaller cloud when closing the lid of the receptacle.

If you're on a DC14 or DC07, this not only adds the Ball, but also a motorized brush bar.

Amazon has the DC15 for $225 shipped right now.

I researched what you get for the extra $60 for this Woot:

It's 4 pounds lighter...
Better quick release wand...
Easier to use kickstand...
New brush bar head (still motorized, just, better, er, head?).

I did the DC07, and now have the DC14, and would consider this, but I think I'll wait until I can upgrade by a factor of 2 again. C'mon DC28!

Anyway, they are not currently in stock. The site says try back in 31 days.

I'd just toilet train the 6 year-old and leave it at that.

Bought a regular 4 wheel dyson about a year ago on Woot, refurb. First impression was "I spent this much on plastic junk?". Then we used it, best vac ever. No problems whatsoever, they do get tons of hair and dust that the cheapo vacs leave. Easy to use and empty. Love the clutch for when something indigestible gets sucked up, vs. burned belt rubber on the rug. They still wont pick up airsoft pellets though (14 yr old son spills them everywhere).

Roomba for easy weekly vacs, Dyson for once a week deep cleans. Life is better with clean carpets!

Ouch! But correct. I only wish someone would of told me what a "prairie oyster" was before I ate it. I know, as good as it is, the Dyson couldn't embragle the mess I made after that experience.

Yeah ... it can. Mine does them all the time. We bring it out on the weekends when we have company and it entertains for hours. You should come over to see it and so I can also slap you around for awhile so you will never post useless messages again. O - watching the havoc - I guess that is what I am doing now.

But here is a good tid bit of info. I bought the DC15 on here about 2 years ago and love it. I have heard bad things about this model and I would stay away from it. Go for the DC 15, 14, or 17. Those are the bread and butter models for Dyson and they perform well.

My mother used to work for a small businesswoman who cleans rich people's houses. They are good friends. I went to lunch with them on my mother's birthday and they were talking about work. Apparently some person who's house they clean has one of these (Dyson ballvac). This woman who cleans for a living had nothing good to say about them. Just putting that out there.

I'm not sure why they do this.

do they think we won't check?

seems like 239.30 with a 5 year warranty and free shipping is leading to the fact that these are really MUCH cheaper to build than the sellers are leading us to believe for the most part.

When I was a Kid I sold Kirby's for a living, I was a Champ at it. My Top week was 23 Heritage and I was rakeing in the big bucks.

I caught on to the whole Vac scam early on though and after a little over a year I just could not do it any longer. You See I knew what the cost was for my manager. I was selling vacs for 1700.00 plus and the cost to my manager was just over 140.00 per unit.
I was takeing Cars on trade, Jewlrey, all sorts of appliances. Even other Kirby's!
I sold Kirby's to people whos Homes were not worth what they were spending on the vac! and no matter what I took on trade I got to keep it and still made my commission of just over 220.00 a vac. Plus Bonuses.

The Kirby is a nice vac - I would never buy one new though and I would never pay more than 65.00 for a used one.

anyone ever sell Kirby's in the fayettville NC area?

we have a Dyson here at the House, its not a ball type. works fine - just like any other vac we have had and have. No better - no worse.

This one may be better from the looks of the reviews - I will never know till I see one at a garage sale however. LOL

I have this vacuum and LOVE it! It is so lightweight & easy to push, once you get used to the idea that the ball mechanism allows it to go around furniture and corners so easily.
It also allows you to push a button to switch from floors to carpet/rugs. No changing vacuums or settings, just a button.
The only drawback to me is the arm/attachments. If you need to do a lot of cleaning with attachments get a canister. Otherwise I would highly recommend this vac.
I bought mine brand new, though.

The vac empties from the bottom. You remove the bagless canister with a push of a button. Then you push another button and the dust, lint, etc empties from the BOTTOM into your trash, thus avoiding that mess in your face.

Dyson machines are way over priced. Non partisan consumer magazines rate them well below other makes that are half the price.
