This review is from: Dyson DC39 Multi Floor Full Size Dyson Ball Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner (Kitchen & Home)
Having had the D1 for about 15 years I did not want any other make. Now living in Portugal I was unable to find a store selling Dyson for me to compare the latest models. I, therefore, spent hours on the site reading all the reviews and got completely confused. I am in my 70's and suffering from arthritis so I needed something light. I also needed a long wand as I have high ceilings. I dismissed the new mini uprights thinking they looked too much like toys and would be too small for my six-bedroomed house. Having more hard surfaces and fewer carpets I eventually decided to go for the cylinder model. At first I thought I had made a dreadful mistake. It was heavier than I expected and the instructions in pictures were a bit vague. However, I eventually got used to the difference between high and low suction and now I am happy with my choice. The only slight concern I have is the trigger that raises the suction. This has to be held up whilst vacuuming carpets and my fingers find it difficult to maintain their grip. Once again, Amazon delivered on time and the item was well packaged. However, anyone else buying from abroad should realise that you lose the guarantee because of the difference in the plugs.
