As some of you may know, I take an odd pleasure in vacuuming. In any event, the fine folks at Strategic Objectives have been nice enough to let me play with some Dyson vacuums in recent months. The most recent trial was the DC25 Animal. After a healthy two-week trial, the DC25 Animal is a powerful machine that living up to the Dyson reputation by sucking up dirt like you wouldn’t believe.
But in many ways, it’s oddly flawed. In particular, the hand-held tool isn’t user-friendly because it’s difficult to get into action, which discourages it from being used. The DC25 also comes with a lot of different parts when, in fact, only a few are used.
Don’t get me the wrong the DC25 is a great vacuum cleaner but at $699, it’s probably more vacuum cleaner than most people need.
