Spec:
Shorter and more lightweight than a normal Dyson upright, the DC24 All Floors is no ordinary cleaner. Featuring its patented The Ball, the DC24 lets you steer your Dyson around the room far more smoothly. A small twist of the wrist turns the head around furniture and into awkward gaps, so cleaning is less of an effort. And reassuringly, youll still pick up as much as with a full-size upright Dyson vacuum.

As with other Dyson cleaners, the DC24 All Floors has Root Cyclone technology, which picks up large volumes of dust, and it's equipped with a lifetime washable HEPA post-motor filter with Bactisafe screen traps that retain the highest level of microscopic particles and kill bacteria.

In addition, the DC24 All Floors has a combination accessory brush and stair tool for picking up debris and fluff from confined spaces such as upholstery, stairs and the car. Suitable for all floors, the DC24 has a large debris channel to pick up bigger particles, brush control, which turns off the brush bar at the touch of a button, and a quick-release wand for reaching higher areas.

Dyson vacuum cleaners offer a free a 5-year warranty. To take up the offer, complete the application form you'll find in the box.

This should pay the maximum 5% cashback available through TopCashBack as it's in Kitchen Science's "Unbeatable deals" (Killer) section, Would be 3.5% or 4% if not, but I'm 85 percent sure it'll be 5%.

It comes with a 5 year warranty regardless of which retailer you buy it from, as Dyson themselves fulfil the guarantee.

I've just ordered, and it went from Ordered to Processing to Dispatched in 45 minutes.

The problem with this is the suction its not powerful at all,if you read reviews on Amazon/Comet etc lots of people say the same,i have long hair and it just doesn't pick it up.

The power is only 650 watts,thats the problem,most other Dysons are 1200/ 1400 watts

I sold mine it was that bad.

Thanks deb8Z, just saved me from buying based on your comment. Heat added for the price though.

Read the reviews on Reevoo though, most say the suction is very good, but the length of the hose and cable is a negative for some.

Mine hasn't tracked yet, but I am a member of Affiliate Window (Their affiliate scheme) and the description states that 3.5% for under 25 sales, 4% for over, and 5% for "Killer Products that are at special price to the customer".

This DC24 is listed on the home page of Kitchen Science as an "Unbeatable deal", so I'm just assuming this is the "Killer Products" section, and thus would be 5%.

It would track at 4% if not, but I will post tomorrow or later today if it tracks.

Which? have this vacuum as a 'Best Buy'.

With everything there are good and bad reviews but the power is only 650 watts,so it stands to reason the suction isn't gonna be great.Couple of reviews mentioning it below :

Pros:
light looks nice Cons:
poor powersuction, very small dust bin
"I loved the design of baby Dyson when this has been launched.
It is expensive but looks very light and easy to move. Yes it is easy to move and light.
But you have to empty your bin too often as bin is very small and suction is not that great.
I have used Dyson for last 7 yrs and like Dyson but I would not recommend this little one for cleaning your home

If you want to clean only for small room, this would be a good choice but not for whole house."

lightweight and easy to move! Cons:
not powerful enough!
"I got this cleaner last month. I live in a 3 bed house, when i have to vaccum my house which i do every 2 days i have to empty it after every room! Which is very bad! The cleaning power is not very good! Before this vaccum i had a VAX and i should of got another VAX! I would not recomend this vaccum."

Pros:
quiet, lightweight Cons:
not great suction
"I find this quiet in operation which is a godsend to my ears after tolerating my previous noisy Oreck. Light and portable particularly on the stairs. Ideal for a small house/flat with few carpets as the small sized dust canister fills quickly - however this is SO easy and quick to empty straight into the bin and no expensive bags. Good at transferring from hard floor to carpet and easy to get around furniture. Unfortunately the suction is abysmal on pet hairs embedded in rugs and carpets - so need to scrub at these using the hose attachment, therefore wouldn't recommend the DC24 for a pet household. Wish I had gone for the DC25 now even if it is heavier, as I believe it has double the suction."

650W is the electrical input which says very little about the suction power. You are falling into the "megapixel trap" by thinking that input power = effectiveness: it is very easy to make a very inefficient electric motor that will just generate lots of heat.

Dyson came clean by publishing a figure for air watts which removes motor efficiency from the equation and is a much more honest measurement.

I have a DC24 and I don't know what people are on about saying it has poor suction: it doesn't. It's certainly true that the dust container is small, but it's so beautifully simple to empty it that I don't find it a problem.

Looks like people are getting "suction power" mixed up with its ability to sweep up pet hairs.

TopCashBack tracks at 4%.

Still makes this the cheapest it's been on sale for.

I had and still have a DC01 which i'm back to using after selling the DC24 its 10 years old and the suction is FAR superior to this model,i don't have pets but i do have long hair and it doesn't pick it up,i had to go over an area numerous times and even then it doesn't always pick up my hair and in one room i have a dark blue carpet that shows up every single speck on it and the DC24 was terrible at picking up in this room it would still have "dirt" on it after using it.

As i say,people will have different views on this and i posted a few just so people could see it just wasn't me who thought the suction was very poor,everything else about it was fantastic,it was compact and lightweight etc

But if you read on other sites a LOT of people say the same so i just wanted to give people a heads up so they can maybe have a rethink before buying,i only wished i'd read the reviews BEFORE i'd bought mine.

I assumed the 650 watts compared to the 12/1400 of other models was the reason why,if its not then i've no idea why a lot of people mention poor suction,there must be something to it,maybe it depends what you expect from your vacuum or maybe it depends if you've used a better model before,i don't know but i know i was mega disappointed with mine.

I'll stop typing now i'm sure people can make up their own minds without me on my soapbox lol

Funnily enough I moved from the DC01 to the DC24 too!

The DC01 was a horrible heavy clunky monster; the DC24 is beautifully engineered, much easier to use, and, unlike the DC01 with its promise of baglessness, is not a con in that the filters need replacing all the time - you just wash them. Its suction power is no problem for me but then there aren't any long-haired members of the household.

No problem with your soapbox - we just have different experiences!

i got the purple one and no complaints

Great Deal, Heat Added

The best thing is to look on Comet.,Amazon etc for one that fits your criteria,price etc and then read the reviews on said site.

I prefer uprights so i'm now looking at the DC25 overdrive from Comet,that has good reviews.

Sebo are supposed to be quite good too.

As i say.i think reading the reviews before you buy will be the best bet:thumbsup:

I'm new to this site, how do we expire this deal?
