    Adverts are getting more and more in the realms of fantasy, but Dyson are past masters of the misleading the gullible ( it used to be a digital motor )
    This time 79000 g
    How on earth do they get away with it..............

    If a spec of dirt weighed .01 grams, under 79000 g would have an inertial weight 13000 tonnes
    At an estimate that would take a cylinder wall thickness of 20cm to stop said spec of dirt

    You notice in the advert they do not SAY their POS generates 79000 g.. Only that you should ask if the cleaner you are thinking of buying can generate those sort of g forces..
    They do not SAY theirs does.. but it is merely suggested

    So many adverts qualify their claims with the words 'up to' or 'may' or 'can' or the worse, 'can XXX up to 100%'

    Notice they are not claiming anything meaningful .. You may use XXX and it might produce a result of only 5%.. but that ok because it is within their statement and is def between 0 and 100%

    Any advert with the words can, up to, or may, are completely valueless and often misleading, containing more or less zero actual information

    Dyson made his name about 25 years ago with quality gear that was built in the UK, did the job and lasted for yonks. Now it’s all shite and gimmicks that’s made in Asia and that’s how he makes his money. His name and glossy marketing with cleverly worded adverts is what draws the punters in. I personally wouldn’t buy his over-priced tat because there quality gear out there that does a better job at a quarter of the price.

    A bit of a clean and a service once in a while and still going strong.












    The same goes for the vacuum cleaner too. :D

    From the title I thought this thread was going to be a new product launch.

    Disappointing.
