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:
[*]they don't work well in tight spaces[*]"Attachments" are held on by friction - and fall off at least twice during any vacuuming event. The Dyson ones lock on![*]most of the dust buster types don't work well at all as stick vacuums - they move more dirt around than they pick up[*]NOISE LEVEL - anyone want an Oreck hand held - CHEAP?[*]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.
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!!
