Dyson DC50 Animal Compact Upright Vacuum Cleaner by Dyson

In common with some other reviewers I bought one of these to replace an old, heavy DC04, and in common with the same reviewers have found that this one's virtues are also its drawbacks.

It is wonderfully light and manoeuvrable, so much so that there is now, for the first time in ** years of marriage, a fight as to who does the [routine] vacuuming in the house, because my wife finds using it such a pleasure.

It is right to say that it is a scaled-down version of the larger models, although the brushing/suction power is still very good, it adjust well between carpeted and hard floor areas, and it has a full length cable, so that you can do a whole room, or two, without… Read more
Altec Lansing IMT 620 - Classic by Altec Lansing

If like me you have bought previous (non-spiral) editions of Philips excellent Navigator road atlases you'll be disappointed with this new one, because not only have they changed the font, so that town and city names are smaller, but they have also omitted the large town and city-approach plans.

For the same price the spiral bound edition, which still has the inner city and town plans, is much better.
