Vacuums: Better Than Robots

Hey, robot helpers are grand indeed! But they're also the next phase of life. And life always finds a way… to win. A quality vacuum, on the other hand, has never gone mad, never turn on its designer, and is kinda fun to push around. Robots, of course, will never let you push them around. NEVER.

Did you miss Black Friday? Cyber Monday? The entire week before? Clean up with a Dyson!

Owners, convince the stragglers which model they need.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Found a much better deal on the grooming tool with three extra items for almost 20 dollars less.

Also, I got the DC-41 on black friday, its amazing.

If I had dust mites, personally I would be less inclined to get a special vacuum attachment and more inclined to take a bath in bleach.

Anyone got the Dyson DC31 Handheld? Thoughts?

I have been waiting for this day since I saw the first roomba (Many, Many times now) on Woot years ago. I have endured cat pictures, mac compatible questions, and under water usages. I have price checked and read a ton of reviews on each Dyson that has since been on the site. I am FINALLY buying the one I want at a FANTASTIC price. Come to Momma my new-to-me Dyson DC33 Multi Floor Vacuum. Oh how I cannot wait for you to suck the dirt from my living room rug, to feel your power in my hands as I use the wand to clean the bugs from below the windows, to have your HEPA filter keep my air free of allergens. Oh Dyson, you are my dream come true!

when will the dc39 be coming out? after the features introduced with that model, the dc24 doesn't seem so attractive anymore...except for the 10" wide head.

Does the DC31 Animal come with an long reach extension? Like to buy it for sucking up insects and spiders.

No. It's the DC35 Floor version that has the extension.

My wife always tells me she wants a Dyson. She doesn't know why, she just wants one. I suppose its to keep up with the Joneses. You have to ask yourself though, WOOT and many other sites are selling refurbished Dyson products so doesn't that tell you something about the quality of their products? Makes me wonder...you should too. In 30+ years of owning vacuums I have never had to take return a Hoover or Eureka after purchase.

I think I found the same deal, always nice to search before wooting... too often I see a better deal afterwards.

Yea. Avoid it.

Bought one at retail, and took it back the next day. The 6 to 10 minutes quoted for battery life is pretty accurate, which means it doesn't work long enough to do anything meaningful. It also doesn't work plugged in.

Also, I didn't think the suction was anything to write home about. The Hoover handvac I replaced it with cost about a 10th as much, has a battery life of 20 to 30 minutes, and has a powered beater attachment that works great on stairs. Sorry, don't have the model number.

IMHO I love my dyson and becasue it is a "high performance" vacuum it needs more maintaience, like a porche or other high end car. I would bet that people who's break don't ever wash there filters never mind every three months.

So, I'm trying to decide between the DC25 and the DC41 here. Any reasons to spend the extra $50 on the DC41? I live in a medium sized apartment, so 'reach' isn't really an issue.

The DC41 has more sucky power (235AW vs 220AW). It also has a bigger bin for all the dirty stuff (.55 gallons vs .31).

For an apartment, you're probably fine with the DC25. If you plan to move some place bigger in the next couple years, why have to get a new vacuum. I'm still using my DC7 vacuum.

That's just my personal input.

Snagged a limited-edition red DC24 last week. It's not as big as the DC25 but for $260 and five years of repairs or replacements, it's fantastic.

The vacuum itself is incredible, the best that I've ever used. I've used it twice now but it's simple and quick to clean my entire bedroom or living room.

Now it's hard to think of investing in a refurbished DC25 without the five years for just $10 less.

Overstock has the DC35 refurb for $189 & Free S&H. Their warranty extension is 2 years, rather than SquareTrade's 1, for somewhat less. Don't know personally how good their service is, warrantywise.

I just bought a DC39 Animal (the current gen canister model) on Dyson's 25% off Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale. I just got it on Monday, and haven't really had much chance to test it out yet. Of course, seeing the DC41 selling here for $75 less than I paid for the DC39, I'm halfway reconsidering my purchase. lol

I was seriously contemplating getting the Allergy toolkit, but I swear I remember Woot! offering the accessories cheaper in previous offers.

I'd also love to see Woot! put Dyson's Hard Floor tool on sale, too.

Is there an extension that I could attach or buy for the DC-31? I dint need a motorized head because I'm using it for sucking up bugs only.

I've been so skeptical... but am going for the dc41. Time to ditch this old bissell and step-up in the vac world. Hope it's as good as everyone says... with 6 kids and multiple pets I need a really sucky vacuum!

a few questions here: is the DC41 offered here the same as the DC41 animal? or are they somehow different? also, does this one come with a mini turbine head? thanks

As best I can tell from the Dyson website, the DC41 pictured is the dark purple "Animal" vacuum.

For the current generation of Dyson uprights, they have three models:
-DC40 Multi-Floor (orange)
-DC41 Animal (purple)
-DC41 Animal Complete (magenta)

From all appearances, they are the same vacuum, just with a different set of tools included in the package.

All models come with the stair tool and the combination crevice/brush tool. In addition to those:

The DC40 Multi-Floor (orange) has no additional tools with it.

The DC41 Animal (purple) has the mini-turbine head tool for cleaning tight spaces, upholstery, and car interiors.

The DC41 Animal Complete (magenta) has the tangle-free turbine head tool (this is different from the DC41 Animal's mini-turbine head tool. That one has a beater bar, this one has two flat circular counter-rotating brush heads), the soft dusting brush, the multi-angle brush, the stiff bristle brush, and a bag of Dyson's Zorb(tm) carpet maintenance powder.

The soft dusting brush, multi-angle brush, and stiff bristle brush are also sold together as the "Dyson Home Cleaning Kit" MSRP $64.99

It is my understanding that this DC41 does NOT have the hand held turbine cleaning attachment.

In reviewing this sale for the DC35, it appears we made an error on the price. If you purchased the DC35 from this event, you should be hearing from Customer Service in the next couple days.
