I've been toying with buying a Dyson because I have a very small apartment with hardwood floors, and didn't want to make the same mistake of buying more vacuum than I needed (i.e., bulky, heavy upright). Along came the DC35 multi-floor, and I'm in love! I can't stop vacuuming... I waited anxiously for it to charge the first time, constantly checking to see if it was ready. And since then, I vacuum every day because it's so easy and effortless and, dare I say, fun! I was about to take my area rugs to be cleaned, but after just one good cleaning with the DC35, I may not have to. Everything is as advertised, but better. I can't believe how well the DC35 works, and I can't wait to try it in my car. I've been telling everyone, and have even offered it to my neighbors to use. I want everybody to have one! If you live in a small space, this is, hands down, the only vacuum you'll ever need. Thank you, Dyson, for making cyclone technology small enough for those who need it.
