Conclusion: The Dyson DC14 All Floors gives your floors an incredible clean. The suction power is amazing, and it doesn't spit out any dust at all from the exhaust. The on board tools are also very nice.
Pros: Excellent suction that never loses power, Very long reach with the Telescopic Reach, A wide cleaning path, Excellent filtration
Cons: Can pull up the corners of rugs., Heavy and large - doesn't get into tight spaces easily., You have to unwind the cord totally to access the hose or wand.
Conclusion: So what is our verdict? Overall we liked the DC14 Animal a lot and the results certainly spoke for themselves compared to our little Goblin. However at £300 for the Animal version I would expect them too and the Dyson still isn't perfect. If you've got a large house then this will certainly fit the bill, if however your in a city flat, no matter what the kudos is surrounding these things, I think its just going to be too big and too cumbersome for those quick hoovering...
Pros: Powerful, gets close to the edges, easy to empty
