Dyson's Best Kept Secrets
While Dyson has pioneered some incredible products over the years, One must remember that above all else, it is still a commercial brand. Dyson’s mission statement has always been to (roughly translated) sell you as many products as possible. While the essence of any business is to gain customers and to part them from their cash, Dyson has a very underhand and pushy way of doing this. For example, it will shout about the benefits of a certain vacuum model until everyone has bought one, then remove all traces of these benefits from the internet and get you to buy the next model. The thing that annoys Dyson’s customers is that the replacement items are more often than not, hardly any different at picking up than the previous model. If you jump from an upright to a cordless then it’s a huge step back in terms of performance, reliability and long-term expense. One of the factors which caused this to happen was Dyson moving its factories to Malaysia. This is not a political statement so think what you will about the cost of labour etc.
Furthermore, the European Union has since requested that imported vacuum cleaners must have lower powered motors. This is great news for Dyson. Because lower powered vacuums means lower expectations. (You can read about the increase in bedbugs as a result of this here). Lower consumer expectations means Dyson (and Shark) can get away with selling vacuum cleaners which are nowhere near as good as they were back in the early 2000’s. Smaller motors and a less demanding consumer means dramatically reduced shipping costs.
Therefore, in a society where we are more environmentally conscious, it is helpful to scratch below the surface and ignore some of the rubbish we see on TV. Dyson products hit a peak with the DC14 and similar models. These models are so robust, and great for cleaning that people never want to part with them. Many people are putting convenience ahead of cleanliness, which of course makes life easier. However, there is also the environmental and financial aspect. Once you’ve ditched your old upright and bought a brand new vacuum, whatever make or model, you are are most likely on a downward spiral of never ending replacements and expense. It is no longer socially acceptable to throw away plastic. So if you can renew your older Dyson rather than replacing it, there is no contest.
