Which dyson?

now I know this could start a few 'dysons are rubbish' arguments but I love them! G-MIL has offered to buy us one as a wedding gift, but I don't know which to ask for. I don't like the look of the new ones with the ball, so I'm thinking the DC07 or the DC14. I can't see a major difference between them, but does anyone else?

We have an animal and it's great.

You actually get to see what the colour of your carpets are when you've hoovered up!

I hear what you are saying but, we had a really old DC04 which I loved, after loads of use it eventually broke and I went straight out and bought a new one, it is total crap (excuse my language), so dissapointed, I've had it for a year and have totally given up on it and bought a bissell.

I have a DC07 witht eh big drum thingy and it's excellent we have the animal one as we need it with the dogs, had it just on a year with a GSD (malting twice a year) and never had any trouble from it) mum has a DC14 (just the standard one) and she's happy with hers, only thing is the drum is small. but big enough for just her and dad.

munz is your parents dc14 raelly loud? Ours sounds like a rock is stuck up there!

lunavix, you have a G-MIL? How lovely!

I have a purple-and-red Dyson DC07 - it was fantastic when I first got it but it's not right now - still works but half-heartedly. They are huge and heavy and temperamental and I would not get another.

For Dyson kind of money, I'd get a Miele or Bosch from Hughes Direct .

I hated mine!!! but it was an early one and maybe they have improved!!!!

lun - not that I noticed, well no more than mine anyhow, personally i'm glad we got the older one with the bigger drum as it suits us better with the dogs.
