My review and perspective on model: DC33 vacuum cleaner

This is the Dyson DC33 Multi Floor Vacuum Cleaner Review please check the reviews page for a comparison of other vacuum cleaners.

Dyson really is quickly becoming one of the most affordable mid to high end vacuum manufacturers on the market. And I can generally recommend them to most people who vacuum more than once a month as they will pay for themselves over time. A Dyson isn't all shine and glamor though, they do require a small amount of work to keep them running like new. Luckily unlike many cheaper brands they can be kept running because they are durable enough to be serviced. Dyson really became famous with their commercials that claimed that they never lose suction. While this is true, it's kind of tricky advertising. A Dyson never loses suction at the motor, but it can clog and lose suction long before it arrives at the motor. What Dyson is referring to when they say that their vacuums never lose suction is actually their system of multiple suction points. Even their large upright vacuums suction line from the motor splits into several smaller suction points before reaching the dirt cup. This design is ingenious as it not only allows for one port to clog leaving the others free but it truly does create more suction. As we learned in science class fast flowing fluids creates low pressure, and low pressure is what we perceive as suction in a vacuum. So the idea of necking down the suction tubes to smaller tubes creates very fast moving air, in turn making a huge low pressure zone, for more suction than your average vacuum. The bad thing about this design is that while it gives several bypasses for clogs it aids in the clogging process with smaller easier to clog tunnels the dirt can potentially travel into. You should watch out for this if you decide to purchase a Dyson.

The Dyson DC33 is most comparable to the Dyson DC25 Ball All-Floors just without the ball technology, and a much larger dirt cup. Having or not having the ball technology is something that you will have to make up your own mind about, many people find it uncomfortable and unnatural to use, others love it. The size of the dirt cup is another thing that you have to weigh in your decision, how big is your home? How often do you vacuum? Do you have stairs to travel up and down? Do you have a place on each floor to empty the dirt? All these questions are good questions to ask yourself when making the decision about which vacuum to purchase. While a larger dirt cup provides convenience it also provides more capacity to acquire more weight, a smaller dirt cup can be annoying for people who have large open areas of carpet to clean.

Dyson's Multi-Floor vacuum cleaners come with what they call a multi-floor brush roll, which has shorter bristles than their Animal versions. Good for using on multiple surfaces, bad if you've got thick carpet and pet hair that needs to be dug out from down deep.

Many people LOVE the washable HEPA filter that comes with their Dyson DC33 (and many other Dyson models) as most HEPA filters cost in excess of $50 to replace, so one that you can wash and reuse is a major plus! Just make sure to let it dry completely before returning it to your vacuum cleaner, this may sound like a no brainer, though I do have a good many customers who ruin their filter by putting it in wet and using the vacuum cleaner, it will embed dirt impossibly deep and clog the filter permanently.

The DC33 is a Residential vacuum designed for use in the Residential environment. I have reviewed it accordingly, the price point of the DC33 is set for the Residential industry which should be taken into consideration when purchasing or thinking about purchasing this vacuum. Commercial vacuum cleaners may be built to last longer and endure more abuse, but are more expensive and may be lacking some of the luxuries (such as light weight, or low noise) that you are accustomed to. On the contrary Residential vacuums are made at lower price points, lower quality, but are often lighter and quieter to use.
