A few years ago, a number of friends used to rave about how great their "Dyson" was, so i thought i would pop round to the local electrical outlet to see what all the fuss was about. After the intital shock of the price, i soon realised how simple but effective this vacuum was, which then made the price look like excellent value.
It certainly looked *very* different to the rest of the vacuum cleaners, with its stylish bright yellow look for the DC04, which i'm sure wouldn't look out of place in the boot of your bright yellow sports car ;)
As well as looking different it certainly performs very differently. It has Dual Cyclone, which basically means it keeps constant suction, so make sure your carpet is very well secured to the floor before you start using your Dyson on it. Also, it has a clear bin, so you can see it filling up, and empty it before it gets full so avoiding loss of any suction.
It has many features as well as the clear bin, including filters which do not need replacing, and just need to be washed every few months depending on your level of usage. Other features include easily removable parts to allow clearing of any blockages if you happen to mistakenly clean up something you shouldn't have.
Best of all is the length of the hose which allows me to clean the stairs easily and get around those awkward corners. And because it is so efficient at cleaning, i don't have to do it so regular, which frees me up to watch more football and rugby on tv ;)
Editor : Note that the DC04 is no longer available. Please do take a look at other dyson cleaners that we've reviewed!
