Frightful - suction is even worse than the crumbling Dyson that it's meant to replace. Have sent it back and have bought a Hetty instead!Read moreLess

I love my Dyson!
The DC24 is the smaller of the ball uprights. It is very powerful but light weight. I can pick it up with one hand, which is excellent as I found the full size Dyson hoovers too heavy to easily hoover the stairs with.
As it is smaller, the cable length is shorter and I need to empty the dust container after every hoover. However I find this no hardship.
The hoover did break after sucking up too many pine needles at Christmas. The helpline were brilliant but it wasn't something I could fix myself so Dyson sent someone to my home at a convenient time within three days and fully serviced my machine and repaired it. This was free as it was within guarantee. So very impressed. I've rated it "10" for durability because of the wonderful guarantee.
It is more expensive than the previous hoovers I have owned however it is so very much better. It's also guaranteed for three years and you can extend this on an ongoing basis by having it serviced (you have to pay once the three years is up). I have broken three hoovers in three years (I have a dog which sheds loads of hair)and they weren't the cheapest. So I've actually saved money by having the Dyson. Can you tell I like it?!Read moreLess
