Got the absolute+ model from the carboot this morning. Payed only 7 for it and it works but is very discoloured and has no tools:(.

I dont know much about

Well, in a nut-shell, they performed rather well, but the build quality was shambolic. A completely new product, with no known brand reputation, poor build quality, and at a price far greater than even the most expensive cleaner in the shops, it had all the ingredients for an epic fail. However, Dyson advertised it heavily on television, and once sales were made and people saw them in other peoples homes, so sales increased further.

Dyson of course attributes this to the fact that his cleaner did so much more than regular bagged cleaners. However, humans beings are not always the most loyal of creatures, and a good deal subscribe to the practice of hope over experience. Were it not for this, Dyson would never have persuaded so many consumers to buy his cleaners. An enormous part of his success must also be credited to the desire to want what others have just had, and to be fashionable. In that respect, the Dyson cleaner had a lot going for it.

James Dyson gets my respect, but for what one might term all the wrong reasons. It's not what goes into his cleaner and his journey which wins me over, it's the way in which he successfully convinced a massive percentage of the United Kingdom to buy his product in spite of the odds stacked against it.

Hey George,

Are their loads of vacs on sale at Tansley or is it mainly Dyson's? I'm tempted to nip down!

Hi dan,

Is it me or do I always find Dc01 hoses hard to put back on the machine? as in the end of hose joined to the machine with the clip that clicks into place behind the bin, its really stubborn, it happened to a few of my Dc01's!

too funny...

In the ad for the DC01 and DC02, the banner claims "the world's first bagless vacuum", which is complete lie. The Rexair model A was the world's first bagless vacuum that didn't lose suction, made in 1936. Today, it's called the Rainbow. Just because James never SAW a Rainbow (or any other bagless cleaner) didn't mean they didn't exist.

How many people do you actually think, in the UK, knew or even cared about the rainbow?
No one, most likely.

Tottaly Right Alex, The DC01 was selling like cars for a pound in the UK! even today people still love the DC01, and Dyson has been coming out with loads of clever ideas that are really cool and useful which is why people put their trust into Dyson, same with Numatic's reliability, they are popular for that reason too, You see Dyson and Henry All over the UK!

Fair does Repair, as much as I love Rainbow, I think marketing here is the majorly differing issue. I have no clue what's it like on the other side of the pond however in Europe Dyson was most definitely the first bagless vacuum, at least advertised as much. Rainbow's been strong since the 80s/90s however considering its massive cost compared to earnings here (and take into consideration the political situation of Europe in the late 80s and 90s, Thatcher, communism in some parts of Europe, classist society), a spending such as the Rainbow system was something only the ones higher up could justify, and hence it was far out of reach, sight or even thinking for maaaaany. I wasn't even aware it existed until once as I kid I visited my very rich auntie who had a D4. Dyson, on the other hand, was everywhere and available at the fraction of the cost. God knows how would this end up if Dyson was only sold via presentations - like Kirby, Rainbow, etc?

Sorry for the small rant, I'm just really into all that haha!

True that, if you go into detail it probably wasn't the first bagless vacuum ever. I bet we could even find some random cleaners from all over the world that had some sort of solution to the bag (according to James) problem. But I'd say in popular culture - it is Dyson
