Advantages: Long lasting
Disadvantages: Not the quietest things
Our first ever Dyson was the yellow one (we binned it so can't give the model number), but that lasted about 9-10 years even after a few repairs, so we had faith in this brand. We opted for the Dyson DC04SL after all hope was lost with the old one, and repairing it would cost more than buying a new machine.
Apart from the bright green colour of the interior, this vacuum was not much different to our old one in terms of size or function. It was definitely louder than our last one though when it is in function.
Using the vacuum cleaner is easy and the notch for wrapping your wires around is slightly bigger in this model than our last, so that is a nice touch. It also has a nice clip to secure the wires.
The vacuuming power (or suck) of this cleaner is average, and it will take about 2 to 3 runs of the vacuum cleaner to fully remove small specks of dust; other cleaners only need one if they are really powerful, but this does give you a better workout, eh?
I also like the removable head for the extendable sucker thing for small spaces; it could have a brush end or a sharp plastic sucking end... (sorry for my lack of proper terms- I am kind of a vacuum noob)
We bought it for around £200 and have been using it for about 3-4 years without many problems, except needing to change the rubber band thing on the bottom... other than that, it has lived up to our expectations and hopefully it will last a few more years yet!
I like the attention to the small details that make this a much better model than our last, and a fab one overall. It is affordable and has lasted a good time and is still in good shape. Although it isn't one of the flashy slim cylinder ball ones, it does its job just as well and really no one vacuums in circles do they!?
