I want to buy a handheld dyson that tesco have on offer for 90. Dh wants to go for the new one that's 300 as it is apparently much better with a new motor.

Money isn't tight but I don't like to waste.

Aibu to insist on the old one as dyson stuff is over hyped and no way can the new one be three times better?

I bought one of the dyson cordless vacuums (not bottom of the range) last year, and it's not that great tbh

Is the £90 one just a handheld or a proper cordless with pole?

The handheld will do your car/upholstery/stairs. The "proper" cordless one is a replacement for your main vacuum. They are not really the same product.

Its the dc30 I'm looking at. Just want something to tidy the kitchen daily and other little bits. Is that the one you got Lottie?

It doesn't have a pole

That one is like a powerful dust buster. What type of floor have you got in the kitchen?

The dyson handhelds are excellent ,the Dyson cordless vacs are not - I've just doubled up my clubcard vouchers and got a Bosch cordless from Tesco which I'm hoping will be better .

Very tempting op. Reviews are good.

Ha Lottie you've got the new one with the, apparently, super motor!

Yep that's it rach, would get 60 off with my clubcard points. For 20 looks a goer!

Wow. (Off to count tesco vouchers)

I don't think lottie can have that exact model as it wasn't about last year was it.
I wouldn't get that one for the kitchen anyway as its not very good at picking up bits. If you were going to spend that amount of money, I'd get this one

You need one without a turbine head for picking up bits from hard floors. The turbine head will just spin the bits away. <vacuum nerd>

Sorry lottie just seen that's the renamed DC59 not the absolute. We've got that one two. I like it for carpets but get frustrated about it not being able to pick up larger crumbs in the kitchen using the turbine head.

I actually think the older the better. The build quality of the first few generations is considerably better.

I'm ultra tight with such purchases and am using a DC04 upright I picked up for fiver at a carboot sale and cleaned / serviced myself, and it's still going strong. The modern ones are flimsy and cheap feeling.

I would go for the 2013 model - when it comes down to it, it's only a vacuum cleaner! Save some dough!
