im not the worlds biggest dyson or oreck fan i like hoover but this guy doing comparisons to the morse vacuum is a complete twat watch what he does to the other machines to big up his morse he extends the hose on the morse "you have ten foot of reach" then watch what he does with the dyson i think most people know you can get 13-16 feet from a dyson you have 3 wands with the morse actually you have one telescopic wand that you have to take off the back of the machine and attach to the hose "all your tools are stored on board" so are dysons but he doesnt have them on there the morse cuts out when you catch a rug fringe and you have to set the thermal cut out the dyson makes a ratchet sound stand it back up then recline again oh my god and the list goes on with the other vacuums this guy is full of shit

Well he does show some good points about the actual Morse upright, (I like the brush roll removal system for example but Sebo's push button release is quicker and far more efficient) even if the whole machine looks like a Panasonic/Sanyo rebadged machine. I note that he doesn't show if the dust bags have a seal on them, just grabbing them out of the Morse vacuum. And, honestly yes whilst he doesn't fully stretch out the Dyson hose, he doesn't stretch out the Morse vacuum's hose either, knowingly that it will fall over because of its central position. Its hardly a quality vacuum either if the dust brush falls out as shown in the video.

You must remember that people who aren't collectors won't know about many flaws of vacuums unless they have experienced a high number of models with pros and cons. Thus, it is an enticing video even if his English could be improved. But then again, lots of videos exist comparing a bagless with a bagged unit and to be fair although he does show the Oreck, the Morse vacuum is probably not in the same market due to its brush roll on/off functions and other things that are on the machine like a bag indicator.

There are plenty of other flaws in this video - namely that Dyson wheels on that model marks floors, which I know it doesn't - they're not rubberised for nothing! SIMILARLY, people who "vacuum up a sock or a rug," will know to switch off the machine instantly when something gets clogged up in the brush roll, or by now should know!

i hate this guy! he says you must replace the filters every 6 months when you dont- you dont touch the post filter and you just wash the pre filter- he also says that the dyson needs to have its clutch replaced, when it clearly does not seeing as my 1999 Dyson DC04 has its original clutch in perfect working order!

analysis and text composition? not even an E or F grade....

If you want to convince people, you never start with "a, b, c versus d" and follow up with "a bad, b bad and c bad as well - now go and love d"

The worst presentation style I have ever seen (no matter what vacuum brand one might be into).
This is a major mistake in texting per se, one that I make all my students flunk for.

Not that I know much about Dysons or that miraculous new brand entirely unbeknownst to me, just the fact that he is using terms and phrases such as "now, what you want to (have, get, buy, - just insert the main verb) is a proof of failure. How can he know what the viewer "wants" to do? (Even though this may be a common order of words in daily lives and me not being a native speaker by far: ANY thinking person can figure that such wording is taking an assumption for a fact, beforehand.)

Have just quickly fast forwarded through the vid, nothing new. Nothing to scroll back and review.
Will you guys let me know when something substatial comes up? Thanks.

I have seen worse videos by demonstrators who don't know the actual model they're selling. I did (and do still feel) an ounce of sympathy for the lady on QVC UK who demonstrated a Daewoo bagless upright one year. I think the video is still showing on You Tube. Even after 6 minutes (6.43) the poor lady presses the button for bin release and ends up dumping the dust prematurely. It really goes from bad to worse as the video goes on, not helped by her co-presenter who is killing himself with laughter.

I'm not huge Dyson fan, but with this video I felt as if I were watching a bad infomercial. No wonder he disabled comments. When someone reviewing something disables comments, it's always fishy :(

I've never even heard of Morse

I ripped this guy apart in his comments back when they were enabled. We had a heated battle going then he just disabled them.

He is such an idiot! he has no idea what he is on about, and you don't have to change the filter every six months in a dyson, and 9 bags will last you a year? I dought that's with daily use.

Well, if it has the same design as Sebo's X bags or the capacity, a box of bags lasts me a year and a half, sometimes two years. Each bag takes around 3 to 5 months to fill completely.
