Pros Powerful suction and easy to use. Easy to empty and clean and Dyson stands by its products with a 2 year warranty
Cons Price Tag is a whopping $499
Summary Let me make it clear, I have now owned 4 different Dyson vacuums from the canister floor vacuum to the handheld to the DC35 Stick now as of yesterday this model and I am never sorry I paid a lot. Dyson stands up to its reputation and stands by each of its products and these products blow away any competitor out there period. This items is no exception. I traded in my DC35 first generation stick vacuum for this one and I cannot believe how powerful this lightweight small unit is. It sticks to the floor it is so powerful a suction and what is different than first generation is that the attachments work and keep working. The DC35 rotor on the floor attachment would stop intermitently and clog up. What Dyson has improved upon is the ease of use, the weight of the unit and increased the power to make this the most versatile cordless stick vacuum on the market. Plus, what Dyson also does is make things so easy to clean and interchange, it is impossible to clog up or break. Granted I broke the battery on my DC 35 the first year, but with a 2 year warranty Dyson shipped me out a new unit no questions asked. I love this unit and the attachments are first class from the crevice cleaner to the brush to the small upholstery cleaner, it makes the vacuum worth the high price tag. Granted this unit cost more than some of the canister models, however, if you can find a deal like I did at Best Buy yesterday (20% off), you can save a bit of $$. If you are shopping for a new stick vacuum, do not hesitate and buy this unit. You will not be sorry and your house and car will be cleaner. I could not believe how much dirt came out of one pass of what appeared to be a clean carpet! Unbelievable! Dyson you have done it again!
