I'll put in my $.02 on my experience. A neighbor stored a Dyson at my house and allowed me to use it as long as I cleaned it out. I'm thinking it was a DC-14, but can't be sure.
I was able to use the Dyson and my Dirt Devil, back to back, the Dyson was quieter and seemed better made and a smoother vacuuming experience, if there is such a thing. It seemed like a better quality product. The DD just did a better job of getting the dirt out.
I'd do a room with the Dyson for the first time and I'd get X amount of dirt. The DD pulled out X amount on the second try.
I'd do a room with the DD first and get X amount of dirt, the Dyson would get X/2 on the second try.
Is the 33 that much better than the 14?
Listen to me now, or hear me say "I told you so" later.
