Re: You miserablists
"[Dyson] seems to me to be primarily an egotistical businessman like Branson (and Edison) who produces overpriced goods heavy on style and light on durability."
I have owned an early Dyson for nearly 20 years, which from memory cost me about £170. In that time it's never given me any trouble, save for an internal hose which split (and they sold me a new one for about £4) and the cyclone unit broke which cost about £40 to replace. That's pretty much all it's cost me for 20 years of service.
