We like the hand held Dirt Devil, too. Small, compact and powerful enough for quick cleanups and extracting flying insects when needed.

The filter and catch-box empty and wash easily.

We keep a Dyson dc24 in the closet. Its small enough and the handle collapses down that it does not obstruct the hanging clothes. I purchased it in black Friday for 250.

tore out all of the carpet, installed VCT, so a good broom and dust pan work just fine. Scatter rugs, I shake outside weekly.....

Dyson DC 35 - just sprang for one. I took mine home last night and just couldn't stop vacuuming! Spiders died, venetian blinds were cleaned to a parade rest, every bathmat and area rug got done, the bare floors were clean - even in the floors. The thing barely makes any noise compared to most small vacuums. I emptied the dust cup about 4 times. I left it in the charger so I can do the overhead cabinets tonight... and maybe under the stove top... and the bottom of the refrigerator. OOH, how about the A/C filters, and the furnace and Reefer vents. (I believe I love this vacuum!)

I've tried lots of cheaper ones, and just was never satisfied because:
  1. they don't work well in tight spaces
  2. "Attachments" are held on by friction - and fall off at least twice during any vacuuming event. The Dyson ones lock on!
  3. most of the dust buster types don't work well at all as stick vacuums - they move more dirt around than they pick up
  4. NOISE LEVEL - anyone want an Oreck hand held - CHEAP?
  5. nasty little cups that fill up and then have to be washed with every third use.
I think these things are actually worth the money. I might recommend we get a big one for the office.

My goodness, that is a lot of energy! I'm sure your house is very, very happy.

We are moving toward getting a Dyson for the house, but a little handheld just has to do when we are on the road.

Have fun!

Dyson makes two products we wouldn't want to be without in our trailer, the small vacuum and the Dyson hot heater. But we spend 6 months a year (winter) in our trailer. For weekends and summer vacation, that's another story, you don't need them.

We keep the heater under the dinette and it heats the entire trailer evenly and at a preset temperature. The vacuum is mounted on the wall in the bedroom in the corner under the tv, always handy, has an unused electrical outlet there for charging, and is out of the way.

For a quality handheld rechargable battery unit, this one I like. Very handy.

We installed a Dirt Devil Central Vac system over last weekend and it works great! Put the motor unit under the bed and the connection port at the foot of the bed. Hose reaches to the door with room to spare and the attachments are the same ones we have for our Kirby at home.

Because we have a Sport 16 our carry along vacuum is a dust broom and pan. But when I vacuum out at home we have a 5 year old Dyson Animal that has been the best vacuum I've ever owned.....and its hard to get excited about vacuums!

Hi Paula! Did the DC35 replace the DC31 that others have spoken about on this thread? Dyson does advertise your model so I am assuming it's the newest. I am going to get one!!
