We've been asked by Dyson to find 15 MNers who are willing and able to try out the new Dyson Digital Slim - DC44.

Dyson say "The Dyson Digital Slim(tm) is one of Dyson's newest inventions and is a lightweight cordless vacuum cleaner, engineered for nimble, high performance spot cleaning. From cobwebs in corners to quick skirting boards and stairs, it is balanced for floor to ceiling cordless cleaning.

Dyson's DC44 is also perfect for quick clean ups - so you'll be ready for any surprise visitors this festive period"

More info here

We're looking for MNers to try this who:
~ are around between now and Christmas eve to receive the product (and ideally have a house-full of guests)
~ are at home over Christmas break to try it out (it's ideal for whizzing round under the tree)
~ willing to add feedback - at least twice - to a thread on Mumsnet over the festive season - we'll be looking for you to add your responses to some questions and also to add further thoughts
~ willing to add a review here
~ are in the UK

Dyson would also like to set MNers some challenges with their DC44 - these will be sent to the selected testers and you'll be asked to add your feedback on how you got on with the challenges.

We're also looking for the testers to send in some video footage of the DC44 being used around the home - and completing the challenges. If you're happy to make a film for Dyson please tick the box on the application form. If you're selected you'll be asked to film yourself, your children and any pets in your home using the DC44. This shouldn't be too onerous. You'll then need to send in your footage to MN. Please note the videos will then be edited into a montage and will feature on dyson.co.uk as well as on the Dyson YouTube channel and possibly elsewhere (eg Facebook, MN) - your name will not be used. You will be sent notes on filming.

If you'd like to take part please add your details here

Please note : if selected products will be sent out this week for delivery before Christmas - please only apply if you are around then for delivery and can also feedback. And for those not successful on becoming a tester, you will be emailed by MN details of a special Christmas treat from Dyson.

If you add feedback as required you will be able to keep the product.

Thanks MNHQ

PS if you don't get selected or aren't able to apply for this test, please keep an eye out for the feedback thread where you could win a Dyson product of your choice.

Ooooh please me! I despise my ancient Panasonic hoover, its heavy and hurts to carry round my tiny and dirty house. sad I have my whole family (Mum, 2 sisters and BIL) coming to stay for xmas and havn't even started tidying yet. And I'm a bit of a hoarder blush. Would love to try this!

Done.

<keeps everything crossed>

Done, looks fantastic!

Indith Tue 18-Dec-12 13:32:34

Oh wow that looks perfect for my house, we have solid fuel heating so the dining room with the stove in is always very dusty and I constantly have to do the skirting boards and picture rails and so on. Not to mention the floor to ceiling bookshelves in there. We are away over christmas though sad

Would dyson be happy wiht it being tested half in this house and half at my mum's with a house full of guests? [hopeful].

NinjaChipmunksGotBigBaubles Tue 18-Dec-12 13:34:54

oh this would be perfect. I have a new but old dusty house, a dd who has just started weaning and lots of people here over the festive season.....please pick me!

dottygamekeeper Tue 18-Dec-12 13:35:57

Have put my details down, hoping to get a chance to try this out to wage war on the dog hair, cobwebs, Christmas tree needles and dust from the open fire in our barn.

Trying to send my application but it won't seem to go through. Is it possible to check if it's been received?

Would love to do this one!

lunar1 Tue 18-Dec-12 13:45:00

Fingers crossed for this one, kind of excited to see what the challenges are, and really hoping that one is to throw crisps all over the floor, stamp on them then try to vac them up!

eteo Tue 18-Dec-12 13:45:17

finger cross!

lunar1 Tue 18-Dec-12 13:46:02

have you received my form, got a blank screen when i hit submit

indiegirl19 Tue 18-Dec-12 13:46:29

Survey done :-) I have a nightmare of a history with vacuum cleaners so fingers crossed I get a chance

choccyp1g Tue 18-Dec-12 13:47:10

I'd love to try it. I had a Dyson many years ago, and was not happy with it, (no loss of suction, because there was no suction in the first place) but would love to be proved wrong.

ABikeWithBellsOn Tue 18-Dec-12 13:47:51

Done - this could save my sanity over Christmas smile

dobby2001 Tue 18-Dec-12 13:48:22

Oooh I would love to test this! Have been intrigued by the advert and am looking to replace old and trusty, but starting to struggle big Dyson. I have a house full of preschoolers over the Christmas break as working aside from the Bank Holidays - and then I have family over so plenty of mess to clear up!

Also not sure if application went through - was redirected to mumsnet product review page after i clicked send - is that correct?

anteena Tue 18-Dec-12 13:49:36

i love my dyson dc25 and the advert for this really caught my eye, as its so light and easy to use. fingers crossed for this

milk Tue 18-Dec-12 13:54:33

*fingers and toes crossed*

Please pretty please pick me!!! grin

Me please (pretty please) We have a rather elderly dyson who really should retire but this Christmas as usual DD1 is bringing my grandson to spend the holidays with us, sadly that means that Harry has to come too!

Harry is a cocker spaniel who moults for England and makes hard work of the festive season. Please I'm beggingblush

KatzGold Tue 18-Dec-12 13:54:51

done - need a light weight vacuum so the DD's can be trained to clean up after their messy house rabbits!

oh yes, this would be fabulous grin we have so many cobwebs and tricky places to clean..

FridgeBenefits Tue 18-Dec-12 13:55:27

Done!
Please choose me, my house is such a pit of despair!

OohMrDarcy Tue 18-Dec-12 13:58:11

I'm in ... fingers crossed!

MsOnatopp Tue 18-Dec-12 13:58:40

Me! Me! I don't have a vaccum cleaner at all sad grin

TapirAroundTheChristmasTree Tue 18-Dec-12 13:59:42

Done! <crosses fingers, toes and everything else possible>
