      all in all a fantastic buy

      At first I resisted purchasing this as I thought it was a little pricey, but I kept seeing them advertised and also had a go of one in a department store and I was hooked!! I ordered mine online and couldn't wait for it to arrive, as soon as it did i put it on charge and set up the cradle with the tools stored neatly away, as soon as it was charged I could not wait to try it especially on the stairs, it was so easy and unbelievably lightweight, it made housework fun and took a fraction of the time. One i had cleaned my house I took it round my neighbours house she also has dogs and she was also amazed at this compact small dyson that has taken over from my large dyson which I found heavy to carry and when doing the stairs I used to trip on the flex. My neighbours have since purchased this also along with another couple of my friends, overall a great buy!!

      nice hoover

      Ive had a few dysons over the years from one(possibly 2?) of one of the first ones out ,which worked great after we "upgraded" the wires/cabling to industrial "katie proof" to one of the ball ones that never stood up straight and i hated it. What first attracted me to this was actually the name, and after i had researched it decided it would be perfect as i have pets plus i thought the other half could use a cordless cleaner for the car.

      **Box Contains**
      1 x DC44 Animal vacuum cleaner
      1 x Wand
      1 x Motorised floor tool
      1 x Charger
      1 x Docking station
      1 x Mini motorised floor tool
      1 x Combination brush/wide debris nozzle tool
      1 x Crevice tool.I haven't really used all the wee tools but the combination brush is quite handy for dusting
      1 x Operations manual and 1 x Quick start guide - I never pay that much attention to these to be honest its more of i plug in first then if there is any problems check the manual. I suppose its handy that its there but i have never used it.

      **In use**
      My initial worry was with it being cordless and so compact that it wouldn't pick up much dirt/ pet hair. The normal setting works fine but i know recently i maybe haven't done as much around the house as normal so i have been using something called boost mode..as the name suggests its just for more difficult (dirty areas). Its very simple to use this function all you do is push a button on the hoover to turn it on/off
      .Suction power -65AW at end of wand in max mode or 28AW at end of wand in standard mode. I have a handheld vax that is only 10.8aw so you can imagine just how powerful this is.

      As you can see it is rather compact and as such is really light aswell - not something that affects me that much but i would recommend this for an older person or someone who perhaps cant lift heavier objects.
      Storage wise i have a lot of cra.. items and i like how this doesn't take up that much space .Also with it being light its perfect to use instead of having to drag a larger/heavier one out the cupboard.
      It's suitable for every floor surface: carpet, ceramic, vinyl and wood. I cant vouch for ceramic surfaces but it works well on the others.

      **Cleaning**
      The filter is reusable. It is very easy to take off and clean.

      **Durable**
      I do feel this will last however it also comes with 2 year parts and labour guarantee.

      **Price**
      I think this is £299 on the dyson site . I purchased mine from that magical place i buy everything (amazon) for £279. I would assume now would be the best time to get it in a sale somewhere?

      I do recommend this, it may be more expensive but like my original dyson i think it will last for years . I just don't think cheap hoovers do the job when you have pets plus i don't really think cheap ones last as long and it ends up being a false economy.
