I have decided to purchase a new vacuum cleaner and after several hours of online research have decided on a make and model of my new vacuum cleaner. I have decided to purchase a Dyson. Seems to have everything I am looking for, quality and power. I have been checking out several sites in search of a good price and found a site called max-vacuum.com. The price is good but when spending this much for a vacuum cleaner I am also interested in the company's reputation. Has anyone dealt with this company/site? One of the things I hate about purchasing things online is the possibility of returning it if it is not up to snuff. So I am interested in any dealing with this company and its' return department or policy. Was their customer service good or were they rude? Did they provide timely responses to inquiries? Any help that can be given is really appreciated.

Hi.

If you're not after a ball machine I would go for the DC33. At £175 it's the cheapest full-sized Dyson out there at the moment. If you fancy a balled machine I would go for the DC25 over the DC24 as you might need the extra cleaning power for the dog hair. It's £220 though and the DC33 is a better buy unless you love the ball idea. To get an idea of prices,

As far as I'm aware Dyson don't sell the groom tool bundled with any of their machines at the moment, although I wouldn't be surprised if they do in the future. Remember that the "Animal" models are actually just the same as the others as far as cleaning power goes, though you get the animal turbo tool which can be handy for hairs in places you can't reach with the full machine.

Of coarse, it's just my opinion and I would always recommend popping down to your local store to see them before making a decision. Internet prices are hard to beat though - check out the price comparer (link at the top left of the page) for a full list of the best prices at the moment.

Thanks, I've been comparing different models for a while now. After my last vacuum choked on all the pet hair, I've been very careful about selecting a new one. My border collie sheds like a demon, so I need something that does a good job. The Dyson DC25 is at the top of my list, any comments on that one in particular?
