When moving into my flat, I wanted a smaller vaccum cleaner that didn't take up much space so I picked one of these up
Okay, Its a lot shorter than a normal cleaner but I was disappointed with the space it did take up, the add on normally comes off when you pack it up and does take up a lot of room on its own, so I don't think it was the best small vaccum out there.
This normally retails from around 270-290 pounds, which is a lot but I did get drawn in by the dyson brand and there certainly is a few other reasons why it is better than cheaper vaccum cleaners!
*Suction and functions*
The added suction compared to others is the best, because it picks stuff up first time and picks up a lot more than what my old one used to miss, because of this it cuts down the time you hoover by about ten minutes. The bottom moves around the floor really easily and can bend to get into all the corners of the room and the dyson is so light it moves around easy with you, the downsize is that the suction hose falls off a hell of a lot and the plug lead isn't long enough! The thing is wonderful for my tiled floors, but because of the missing carpet brush, the carpet in my bedroom takes a lot longer to hoover up!
The dyson comes with a button that sucks the plug back up, shame its so temperamental and only works about 25% of the time!
The emptying does take a while and can get messy, the click thing takes a while to work and come off and the bagless normally means that it can get everywhere if your not careful, the tub of dust is very big too and can be hard to actually get in the bin!
I would rate it four out of five for a tiny flat like mine it does do wonders, but for a bigger house with a lot of carpet you would defiantly need something else!
