I own a dyson too, but I do not doubt the validity of the CR ratings. Just because you people love your dysons, it doesn't mean they are the king of vaccums. Not all dysons are created equally either.
There is also a term that I can not recall, but it is when people spend a lot on an item and essentially tell themsleves it's the best thing since sliced bread(even when it is not) so that it validates their purchase. Anyone know the term I am referring to?
Again, I have a dyson and it is a nice vacuum that does a very good job, but it's not mind blowing. It does what it is supposed to do.
You are likely referring to cognitive dissonance, or a specific branch of it, known as "post-purchase rationalization"
Im actually looking for a similar term myself which explains why people RECOMMEND items more when they are expensive and they like it, versus simply just liking it. I read it one time in reference to iPads, as well as Tempurpedic mattresses
I own an old Dyson DC15, and paid a pretty penny for it ($399), but I got so sick and tired of having countless Dirt Devil, Shark, and Kenmore vacuums break on me (I have used many from growing up, going to college and back, moving, etc), and the Dyson is surprisingly resilient. The best part is, when it needs service, I can bring it to any independent repair place, and Dyson pays the bill to them. So much better than waiting in line at the Sears service center, and coming back 2 weeks later.
