It is what is. A luxury item useful for quick clean ups for people who can't be bothered to unwind the big vacuum.

That's not what they mean. Hoover is a trademark brand of a vacuum cleaner. What you posted is not a hoover, both by definition and brand name. Nothing against Dyson.

Hoover is a word used as a generalisation of vacuum cleaners.

I understand it’s a trademark, I know what a hoover is but it’s not always used in that context HENCE “A vacuum cleaner, PROPERLY one made by the Hoover company”

Ah yes, because random twitter users are pillars of authority when it comes to correct word usage. Give it a rest, I've already explained why your initial comment was misleading.

Just re-enforcing the meaning behind the definition because you couldn’t understand the terminology, care in the community and all that.

Doesn't last very long, but i'm not complaining I got it 2nd Hand from a lady that thought it was a Black & Decker - charged me £15 for it!

Yes.
"animal" is just the marketing branding for a given set of attachments/configuration

Hardly, it's like saying a Ford is old tech because it still uses a combustion engine, buy a Tesla etc.

The DC34 has a slightly worse motor than the V6 (which is something like £130 now),
so it will still be adequate for picking up household detritus.

That said this doesn't come with the V6's motorised head, which is what makes the V6 a super useful tool.
Really £80 is a lot for a refurb, and although it doesn't really matter that it is several generations behind, it's perceived value is going to be less and it should merit a better discount.
Dyson cocked up it's branding on this product and introduced lots of models with hardly any differences

For stuff like this, I reckon wait until after Christmas and the V6 will be £100

There was a V6 deal in the past day for £99.99 at CoOp Electrical...

Ah, just looked on eBay and yes, the V6's from the Dyson outlet are already at £95.99

and there are refurbs with the motor head for a bit more

silly comments aside, does anyone know what the approximate charge/run time for this is? - good for tidying up the car?

From flat, about 4 hours,

In practice it's mostly used for picking up random mess as it happens and then it's back on the charger, so it never really becomes an issue.

If you were planning to clean the whole house with it on a Sunday, and required the motorhead to run on boost to pick up pet hair as well, then I can't see it doing more than a few rooms.
It's not like a corded model where you go over every inch of the carpet in every single room, it's used more like picking up dust from the corners.

Great for the car, in comparison the hose on my Miele is a pain trying to manoeuvre, and it required physically moving the entire vacuum adjacent to each door to reach anything.

I've just used mine to tidy up after a DIY job, hauling out the big vacuum for a tiny spot of dust would have been a pain.

I ordered one these on a previous deal and sent it straight back it was utterly useless. When the customer services representative asked why I was sending it back I told her because it's suction was way below what is expected for a Dyson she said well it is an really old model! She basically wasn't surprised it was being sent back.

These really aren't worth the money and I wouldn't buy another at half this price, they are crap.

The V6 is vastly better than the DC34 - I know because I own both. The V6 is really effective for all sorts of jobs and at £100 on the Coop deal is a steal.

I've kept the DC34 for use with small diy jobs like sucking up sawdust or sanding dust but otherwise it's pretty hopeless. A refurb V8 would be better still if and when the price finally drops down enough.

Wish I never bought this last year... complete waste of money!!

Great product, ideal for small household spillages, cleaning the car, cat litter around tray, cobwebs etc
The charge lasts 6 mins on Max mode.
There is a button to engage and a light to show this is enabled and it's best to have it on when in use/permanently.
8 out of 10.
Edited by: "deany76" 24th Nov

That’s a good price. So are there 2 variants to the V6, a motorised head and non-motorised head?

I wouldn’t give any validity to people commenting negatively with absolutely no other activity onsite. Watch a review of it if you actually want to learn more about it.

Every single Amazon product has a 1 star review, these people are everywhere

Got mine a year ago. It's worth it purely for Weetabix crumbs, which despite my best efforts, continue to be a problem. Suction is more than enough for small spills and car cleaning, which is what it's designed for. Lasts 5 mins or so on the max setting but the normal setting lasts 2-3 times longer and is fine for any spill too.

The battery fizzles out quite rapidly and charging takes forever.
