Dyson DC16 Root 6
Advantages: Small Size, Light Weight Design, Ease of Use, Well designed in general
Disadvantages: Battery life poor, Bin could be better
I've had this product for about a month at the time of writing and I am quite impressed by the build quality. Although this is sometime I expect from Dyson.
The unit itself is not that heavy and is good for hard to reach places. It is not very noisy, in fact is definitely quieter than other stand up hoovers.
I like the attachments that are provided, you have a long thin one, one with bristles, and another small tube one (haven't yet found out what this is useful for). They are the same as you would get with any other dyson but smaller to fit the unit.
The design is very good and I like that you have to hold the trigger to make it work, which is well designed to where you should hold it.
For a portable hoover is perfect for cleaning the car and any small messes about the house. I have found that the size of the bin on it seems a little too small, while cleaning the car I had to empty it twice, and its not a very big car.
One thing I have noticed is that battery life is not a good as i would have expected, it need to be one charge all the time if you don't want to be caught out by lack of power.
The unit for charging is a good size and when charging is discrete enough, if a little chunky. I live in a small flat, and it doesn't take up too much room which is why we bought it.
Personally I think this is about right for something to clean up little messes but if you plan to get one for the smaller size and use it in a similar way as a normal hoover you'll find it really is not big enough.
Summary: Good for cleaning small messes about the house and decent for cleaning the car
