Dyson Ball DC24 Bagless Upright Vacuum.
My wife uses the cleaner and looked at it with contempt when it first arrived thinking that it was too small to be of any use whatsoever and that we had made a great mistake buying it. What a difference when she plugged it in and started to use it, her face lit up and she had an enourmous smile. The Ball is very light and manouverable and cleans right up to the edges of the carpet. It has great power to lift all the dirt and rubbish of the carpets and other surfaces. At the touch of a button the rotating brush stops turning when it is used on non carpeted surfaces and with another quick touch it will rotate again. The only drawback on the cleaner is the small capacity of the dust container so it needs emptying a bit more often but even this procedure is very quick and efficient, the dust container is easily released and held over a bin and then you press a button and the hinged base opens releasing all the dirt into the bin (very neat and natty), another touch of the button and you can release the container completely to clean it further if you need to. When you have finished using the cleaner the telescopic handle can be retracted and it can be stored in avery small space.
Overall this is a very compact and efficient cleaner which has been well thought out and engineered by Dysons. Try and get a demo at your local store if you can and I think you will be absolutly amazed at how easy it is to use and how efficient it is.

I bought this Dyson upright because I have always had Dyson Upright hoovers and have been very pleased with them - with just one proviso - they are so heavy! So when I saw that they had brought out this smaller version, I decided to get one.
This little Dyson is wonderfully light and very easy to manoeuvre. It does a very good job, has washable filters and comes with adequate onboard tools. However, there are a few compromises to make regarding the light weight and smaller size. It has a smaller capacity, so be prepared to empty it a little more often and it doesn't have the full on suction power that the larger models have. Sadly it doesn't have such a good stairs tool as the bigger models you can't interchange the tools with them either.
That said, it is a very useful cleaner for most jobs, much more convenient to use than a hefty large one, with a lot more suction and much better capacity than those little hand held Dirt Devil things. When I want to give my large lounge and hall carpets a more thorough clean, I get out the old big Dyson - but I am so glad that I don't have to lug that around the house every week anymore!
Overall I think it is excellent item and I bought mine on eBay for a really good price too.
Highly recommended whether you just need an extremely efficient, small hoover, or if like me, you get exhausted hauling a big one around!

DYSON DC24 BALL UPRIGHT VACUUM
Whilst it is not as powerfull as the DC25 it does a first class job of cleaning.
Being disabled,in a flat, this cleaner meets my requirements in being light in weight,has a telescopic handle making it easier to put away.It is remarkably easy to move arround in use and very effective in cleaning carpets with the power brush on and equally effective in the kichen and bathroom with the powerbrush off.
Be carefull when emptying the small dust container,make sure it is well inside the bin bag before pressing the emptying button! Dust can get everywhere!
cleaning the 2 filters is easy but the drying takes a day.
keep the instuctions in a safe place together with the receipt,register it with DYSON, there is a transferable 5year guarantee should you wish to sell it.
Being a colourfull design only display it if it fits your decore.

worth every penny
After spending nearly an entire day researching all the different dyson cleaners, i settled on the dc24. My current dc04 was running out of puff and having had nearly 9 years service out of it, i thought it was time to get a new one. When my new dyson arrived, i was surprised at how small the box was and thought there is no way that this is all of it and checked with the delivery man that there wasn't another box with it!! He assured me that was it and was on his way. Once the dyson was out the box, it was very simple to put together and the instructions are very straightforward. I can't emphasise enough how small this dyson really is, my not yet 2 year old daughter is taller than it!! She thinks it's her new toy! Now to try it out, i have laminate wood floor downstairs and carpet on the stairs and upstairs. I started my test drive upstairs, i wizz round my 3 bedrooms with ease and realise it has taken me half the time to vacuum than with my previous dyson. Now for downstairs, even quicker on the laminate floor, was a little worried it wouldn't pick up as much as upstairs (You have to turn the brush off when doing hard floors) but am really surprised, it does a brilliant job. The stairs are also much easier, because this dyson is so light, i can carry the dyson in one hand and vacuum with the extendable hose in the other, and again it took less than half the time to complete the job. Once the whole house was done, the dust chamber was almost full, so i decided to try emptying it. This is a doddle also. Overall, i think this dyson is excellent. The only downside for me is that you only get one attachment, could do with another one for dusting shelves ect. This is available to buy seperately but seeing as my dc04 came with 3 extra attachments as standard, i feel it should have come with it. All in all, a very happy dyson customer.... again.

Every home should have one
The suction power on the Dyson seems to be better on these bagless machines with very easy emptying. Because the full size one was too tall and too heavy to lift and manoeuvre the little one seemed a good idea and it really is very small but still has the power and easily manages a large house. The attachments are all in one and instantly to hand making switching between floor and nozzle seamless. You just have to empty the cylinder more frequently but that means its cleaner with less blockages. Vacuuming behind and around furniture and in tighter spaces is much easier because you can lift the machine over obstacles into hard to reach places. The power lead is shorter and means you have to change sockets for each room. Stairs are tricky as it doesn't quite stretch far enough but you just have to do them in two halves, or carry it up with you or get someone else to hold it. The real bonus for me though is that it is child size and very child friendly and the children are very keen to give it a go, so its a fight as to who gets to vacuum that's got to be worth 5 stars!
