I thought my house was clean....
on 5 October 2011
... until I ran this around! I'd hoovered the day before, and was interested to see how much more the Dyson would pick up - loads was the answer! Previous was a year old Electrolux.
Anyway, enough gushing. From what I've seen so far, I'm pretty impressed. Its not quite as light as I expected (me being unrealistic I think) but certainly light enough to hold one-handed while you're hoovering the stairs etc.
Most of my house is wooden floored and I found it picked up exceptionally well without any of the horrible scratching noises that you sometimes get on floors. Am particularly impressed with the thinness of the wand, it slides easily under my sofa and coffee tables and the length adjustment is perfect - I'm short but still find that I stoop when hoovering.
If I had to complain about anything, it would be the length (or lack of) in the cable - it is really quite short, but then again, the hoovers so light, its not a chore to carry it around while unplugging and plugging in elsewhere.
At the price Amazon are selling at the monent, I'd say its a steal.
