I bought this Dyson DC21 a couple of weeks ago for £199 on Amazon. This was an amazing price and the reason for it dropping in price is that the newer model has just come out - this is about £370 from the Dyson website!! Having said that I have just checked Amazon again and the model I bought has gone up to £230, but it might well come back down again.
I bought a Hetty hoover last year (like a Henry but pink) it wasn't that cheap about £100 but although it had lots of suction it wasn't picking up hair from the carpet ( i have long hair that gets everywhere) and I have also been suffering from back problem and Hetty was too hard to push as you had to press quite hard on the carpet.
I tried my boyfriends DC21 that he bought 3 years ago and decided I must have one for my flat too so was very pleased to get it for the price I did especially as it comes with a 5 year guarentee as I have gone through many hoovers in the past.
It is fairly heavy - the actual cylinder - but for someone without a bad back this should be no problem and now it is up the stairs in my flat I don't need to lift it anywhere just wheel it so it is absolutely fine.
The beauty of this hoover is that although it is a cylinder hoover there is a motor in the head of the brush part - this was lacking in my Henry and with the Dyson it means that the brushes turn and pick up hair but also makes it very easy to push along as it helps propel itself.
The amount of dust and dirt it picked up on its first go was truly shocking! My carpet looked clean to the naked eye but after the Dyson had run over it there was so much dust and dirt in the hoover compartment and I could see that the carpet actually looked a better colour and like it was newer! I was hoping it would pick up all my hair that gets into the carpet but this was better than expected! In fact I used it 4 times that week - not because it needed it but just because it was so easy to use and picked up even the tiniest pieces of dust and dirt with such ease that it was a pleasure keeping the carpet clean rather than having to drag Hetty hoover out once a week and brush away for ages to get it to pick up certain things!
The Dyson DC21 comes with:
* 1 x DC21 Motorhead which is the hover body itself and it is a lovely shiny silvery grey colour all over
* 1 x Motorised Brush Head
* 1 x Crevice tool - to hoover in small places. A very useful tool
* 1 x Stair tool - Haven't used this as I don't have stairs in my flat but at least it comes with it for people that do have stairs
* 1 x Brush tool - This tool is actually very good for using on upholstery or for getting dust mites out of your pillows and mattress - especially useful if you are an allergy sufferer
* 1 x User manual - being honest i haven't actually opened this yet - as i found the Dyson clicked together very easily and was so easy to use i haven't needed any instructions
I would definitely recommend buying this and for the price for a Dyson it is amazing.
