    Straight out of the box this looks great. Sleek, lighter than the early models & easy to hold.
    Charging is via a 'plug-in' charger that has a green light which goes out once this is done. The Dyson's used to come with a cradle that you could screw into the wall & slip the vacuum into but these cost extra now.
    The suction is a big improvement on the early designs too as is the staying power which, despite what the 'blurb' may say, is about 7 minutes on ordinary mode and 4 minutes or so on extra.
    This may not seem like long but this is for small jobs not vacuuming the house. So for doing the car or a long set of stairs this is spot on.
    The fact it can be almost completely taken apart means even fine dust that makes a complete mess can be vacuumed. Just remember to clean the filters!
    Problems? Well a smaller one is that the Dyson 'trap door' beneath the cyclone where you empty the dirt from continues to stick at times and dirt & dust get caught too easily in it.
    There remain too many extras to buy but too little provided.
    The main problem though is a big one. The batteries suck even more than the vacuum. I'm afraid that Dyson have still not managed or maybe bothered to get to grips with the fact that when people pay close to £150 for this item they expect the battery to last longer than 18 months. It doesn't. You'll eventually find the item keeps cutting out. This begins to happen more & more often until in the end a new battery is the only solution.
    So another £40-50 is then needed to make it work properly once more.
    This has the potential to be a great product but far too much time spent on yet another redesign & far too little spent on a long term battery solution means this may work well for a while but it will eventually require a hefty cash injection to keep it running long term.
    A real disappointment unfortunately.

    We have recently moved into a three story house and the worst part about vacuuming is doing the stairs, with so many stairs I knew a hand held vacuum would be the solution. I choose Dyson because we have had an upright Dyson for about 10 years now and the suction is still really good (if you keep up to cleaning the filters).

    Upon receiving this DC34 I found it well packaged with a modest number of accessories, the unit itself is very lightweight, almost like a child's toy. The suction power is nowhere near that of my upright mains powered Dyson however it does do the job required well and it is quick and easy to empty. I particularly like the main attachment that offers duel function (much better than having two separate attachments). Not only is it perfect for the stairs but I've also found it ideal for light fittings, cob webbed room corners and crumbs in the kitchen. The battery soon runs out if you get carried away.

    Since buying the DC34 I quickly realised that I would need a wall mounting bracket that would allow me to store it neatly and also charge at the same time. This is the one that I purchased http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006YSTX6Y/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00. More than ideal for the job but expensive for what it is and with the price tag of the DC34 I would really have expected this to come for free.

    In summary the let downs of this product are the cost of the unit and accessories, the battery life and the limited suction power. However having said that in use there are many other features that redeem it and make it worth the 4 stars I have given.

    We've had the DC34 a couple of years and when it works there's no doubt it's a great gadget. Assuming your fingers are strong enough to sustain pressing the on-button for prolonged amounts of time - and you do need a fair amount of hand-strength for this, I find you can vacuum a room in about the same amount - or even less - time that it'd take with a conventional vacuum cleaner. The suction is excellent and I find the vacuum very convenient to use.


    This particular model has some serious design flaws. Our first battery pack failed about 6 months in when the machine was still under warranty and was replaced. Incidentally I highly recommend the Dyson helpline staff who really are helpful - but since then the power has been intermittently cutting out to the extent that it's now unusable as it'll stay on for only about 4 seconds max. We were enquiring about new battery packs / chargers to try and sort the problem but have been told that the issue is with the connection to the battery pack, which in these 'earlier version' D34s tends to come loose. This can't be remedied without our purchasing an entirely new handset - effectively the main part of what you think of as being 'your Dyson' - at a cost of about £70.

    The information we were given is that there are 2 versions of the DC34. The older type 'A' that we've got can be identified because it has a grey button with a downward-pointing arrow positioned just above the input where you plug the wire in for recharging. These type A DC34s are subject to the problem of the battery pack coming loose. In the newer 'B' type DC34, instead of the grey button, there's a screw to hold the battery pack in place more securely. These type B DC34s apparently aren't so prone to problems as the older version.
