This lightweight Dyson DC59 assembles in about 30 seconds. It also needs to be charged for 3.5 hrs. after assembly and before use. It comes with one small nozzle attachment and a plug in charger. It's light weight just about 5 lbs. and of course the Dyson swivel head makes it easy to move around. On the box it says "Up to 20 minutes of fade-free suction". It may last up to 20 minutes however, that 20 minutes is only using it with the small nozzle attachment not the actual vacuum head/brush bar. If you plan to use the brush bar for a while then switching to the small nozzle it will last about 5-6 minutes of time. There is no on/off switch, you will need to squeeze and hold the button (trigger) while operating it. There is nowhere to store or put the nozzle attachment, you'll need to carry it around with you while cleaning if you intend to use it. The bin is very small and doesn't hold much. If you have animals, by the time you clean a 3'x3' area you'll need to empty out the bin which turns out to be a dirty job; the dust sticks to the bin because of static. Animal hair and dust collects around the washable filter and doesn't fall out when you empty the bin, you need to reach in and pull it out by hand. Filter is washable however, getting the filter out of the bin is difficult because it's hard to get a grip on the plastic pull; almost impossible if you have long fingernails or large fingers. Removing the brush bar for cleaning requires you to unlock and turn a special tab which will require the use of a screwdriver or a coin. No way of hanging up the vacuum for storage. Storage is awkward because this Dyson won't stand on its own without being propped up. A wall mount hanger was not included with this model. I was hoping to use this Dyson on a staircase but the bin fills up so quickly that I found myself running back and forth to empty it. I also ran out of power just before I was done which may have been a good thing because the handle started turning a bit warm. The battery is located below the handle grip. I struggle to find a reason why I would purchase this particular Dyson. If I had a closet with an electrical outlet so it can be charged and out of the way and, if it had a way to be hung up somehow, I may grab it to use for a 30 second vacuuming of crumbs and such. I can't see it being any more convenient or helpful than using a small size plug in vacuum. Unfortunately this is not the Dyson for our family.
