Summary: I love the Dyson DC34 vacuum cleaner, its ease of use and how well it works is perfect for our needs. In our home we have one big, heavy vacuum with a lot of attachments. It's such a hassle to use, that most of the "hard to reach" places get overlooked. This includes little crevices, my van, etc. When the Dyson handheld arrived I was so excited to try it out. The Dyson DC43 vacuum was fully assembled when it arrived which is always super nice.
Pros: effective, reliable, easy to use, met my expectations
Summary: The vacuum works as expected. It's quite powerful and does a great job in picking up dust and heavier debris. Although I recommend the product I do have a wish list for it. Battery life at 15 minutes is short. The battery is not removeable and therefore you can not have one fully charged waiting in the wings. It must be recharged while on the vacuum and takes 3+ hrs to do so. The dust/debris container is small and must be emptied frequently.
Summary: First, let me say that this is the second item I received from walmart.com, that appeared to be used. The Dyson tape that sealed the product box, had been cut, and the box looked like it had been around the block...quite a few times. That being said, I charged the unit for 3.5 hours, as directed, only to get a whole 3 minutes of use (regular setting) prior to the light flashing (battery low). I bought this to upgrade from my old no-brand vac I have had for years.
Summary: It's a good hand vacuum, but unfortunately not impressed with the suction power. I used it vigorously on a rug with pet hair..wasn't able to pick all up even on High power mode. Run time is also just about ten minutes.
Summary: I was already a Dyson owner, and sold on their full sized vacs, but have always been leery of the cordless hand vacs as I had never found one that was worth two cents, let alone $160. But as I have remained impressed with my Dyson upright, I thought I'd give this a chance - and very happy that I did!! I'm a wood worker and it is a great addition to my shop. I works great and is easy to maintain.
Summary: You might think this vacuum expensive at first, but the brand never disappoints you. My boyfriend recommended it to me and as always he was right. It is super handy and works very efficiently. Easy to assemble, easy to clean, light weighted, and can be used anywhere. Just love it!
Summary: The Dyson DC34 Bagless Cordless Hand Vacuum does what the product claims. It is easy to handle, very practical, and very easy to use. Either for a quick and effective vacuum at home, or for the car, you get the job done, PERIOD. Job well-done on Mr. Dyson's end.
