So I bought the missus a Dyson DC25 (animal) for xmas. I know, it's not really a pressie is it, a vac? (I got her a Panny BD75 to make up for it though ) But it's what she has been hinting at for ages, as the old one has started to play up (overheating and cutting out, yes I know it's the filters) and she wanted the ball thingy. Anyway, the point is we assembled it and I said "well go on then, you have to try it out". I wanted to see it in action, as I've always been sceptical about the ball. Imo, the ball is no big deal, but blimey, a quick (1 min) sweep round the living room shocked me You should have seen the crap that was in the tub. The room's vacced everyday, but I was embarrassed at how much crap had previously been left in the carpet Cracking piece of kit More importantly, the gaffer likes it too. It looks terrible imo, but that doesn't bother me, as I'm more efficiency minded. And I won't be using it anyway So, I was just wondering if anyone else got a Dyson and their thoughts?
