Dyson or Gtech Air Ram?


I'm looking to buy a cordless vacuum cleaner to replace my old Dyson. I always found Dyson very good and the only vacuum I've had that didn't lose suction, but the Gtech Air Ram also looks quite good. Does anyone have one and would you recommend it? Our dog moults constantly so I need a really good one!. Thanks in advance

Our cordless Dyson lost suction after a handful of months, I'd never buy one again. I went back to corded... Its a SHARK (same shape, not a bulky hoover etc) and I love it!

I do like the Dyson hoovers just not the cordless and it put me off any cordless hoovers... they aren't exactly cheap.

BUT I have to say I pref the SHARK over Dyson too plus it doesn't take up much space (well mine doesn't) and has a holder for inside your utility room/cupboard etc

Thanks ladies We went for the Gtec Air Ram in the end. I love it! So much easier not having to drag a big vacuum cleaner around and be struggling with a cord. Even DH is vacuuming lots now, although I'm sure that the novelty will soon wear off for him

I've heard a lot of people complain about Dyson - they are not the machine the company makes them out to be. I can't do cordless as I like a constant stream of power. Honestly, my next hoover will either be the Shark or the Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution. Both have HEPA filters which is great because we are all asthmatic. If I have to settle for a less impressive machine, I'd take the Sanyo SC185R which I have now. It's been going for 5-6 years but is getting to the point where there is only so much duct tape I can use to keep it together. They aren't overly expensive and have a pretty decent suction on them. The only downfall I find if that the filter needs regular cleaning because they collect dust fast.
