Most consumers who have ever shopped for a high end vacuum cleaner have heard the name Dyson. The brand has become very popular for a number of reasons, including the innovative features included in its catalog. One such feature is the bagless vacuum design. The DC15 Root 6 hand held vacuum is another example of this design option at work. The long term cost of running a DC16 is minimal compared to similar models that require the purchase of bags every week or month (depending on frequency of use). Dyson vacuums may cost more than some initially, but some consumers find they get a lot of use with minimal maintenance costs out of their product for many years.
This model is designed with root cyclone technology. It charges three times faster than other hand held vacuum cleaners and offers twice as much suction during regular use. As an added bonus, the unit is also cordless so it is very convenient to grab, use and put away in a matter of minutes. No need to search for a well placed outlet or wrestle with power cord slack while vacuuming.
The powerful suction of the DC16 hand held vacuum makes it possible to collect large pieces of debris from floors. Cleaning out the vacuum is also easy, using a one touch system to empty the collection compartment. The DC16 is packaged with a battery charger, combination accessory tool, crevice tool, and a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
What did customers who bought Dyson’s DC16 hand held vacuum like?
- The strong suction and power offered by the DC16 is a huge plus compared to other hand held models.
- Most consumers reported that the DC16 required a single pass to collect up even larger spills, such as crumbs and other debris.
- The total recharge time for maximum power is only three hours, making it possible to keep the DC16 adequately charged and ready to use any time.
What did Dyson’s DC16 hand held vacuum customers dislike?
- The power of the DC16 eats up the batter life very quickly during regular use. If the job takes more than five minutes, the unit will begin to lose power and suction and eventually need to be recharged again.
- No on board storage feature is included for nozzle attachments, which can make storage less convenient and lead to lost accessories over time.
- The price of a second battery (to change out with the one include and increase potential use time of the DC16) is expensive and can cost close to $90.
