Dyson DC38 Bagless Compact Multi Floor Ball Cylinder Vacuum & 8 Accessories - 800597
Great little lightweight hoover BUT the cord is so short but i guess it has to be as its a small item. Good for a small flat/house.....Sent it back and will get a bigger Dyson to suit my bigger house.

This is a splendid machine. Such a change from my original upright!!! Great for my long flight of stairs. It picks up dirt on a wide range of floor surfaces. Deals with two cats' hair. I agree that I would like a slightly longer length of flex however the old one did not do my whole stair case so I am happy to give it a 5 star raating. The various attachments I have also found useful. If it was still on easy payments I would buy a second one for a holiday house.

Very pleased with this little Dyson
We have the top Oreck, but as seniors find it is very heavy to lug around the house, so ordered this for downstairs and stairs. Downstairs is tiles, laminates and rugs and this is just perfect.
It cleaned the stairs to the best they have looked for a long time. No more brushing first as I had to do with the big Oreck, and for that matter when using the small shoulder slung one they sent with it.
We had no problems in assembling it, in using it etc. It didn't fall over, the cord rewind works very well, the suction is fantastic. The only thing that took us a few minutes to work out with the Dyson instructions was how to get the little dust holder out.
Its true this is a little small, but this is supposed to be a lightweight product. What you don't know until you get it that the max fill mark is about a fifth of the way up that see through holder, so you don't have the full capacity of it.
However, we used it to do all downstairs, the stairs, and the main bedroom and had to empty it three times. Was this a problem. NO. Its quick and easy to do and the dust doesn't go everywhere. If you have lots of fluff rather than "bitty" dirt then its true you have to stick your fingers in to pull it out, but whats with all the YUKS... until a few minutes ago I was living with that dust in my room. This doesn't cause me a problem at all, but if it did I would just use a small tool to pull it out, even an old fork would do.
We have a regular size 4-bedroom house, and maybe we are just lucky having a plug in the middle of our hallway, but from this plug I was able to vacuum nearly everywhere downstairs, and up the stairs to the middle landing. Our lounge is 24ft long and it certainly did the top half without having to be plugged in anywhere else.
Its small, but they say it is....and we love it.

Just taken delivery of the DC38 and have to say that Dyson have yet again delivered a superb product. The added value with the attachements from QVC is a bonus not to be missed. The performance of the DC38 is first class with easy of use, cleaning perfomance and movability - especially when it comes to the stairs. Would have no hesitation in recommending this to all.
