Are Dyson 'ball' vacuum cleaners good or not good?

    Dyson vacuums are great and the ball vacuum works as well as the standard vacuum. I don't personally like the ball vac because they're top heavy and don't like going in a straight line without great effort of the user. The ball vacuums are also not as stable when parked for using the hose as their standard counterparts. Again, Dysons are great vacuums, but IMHO the ball vacs are over hyped in easy of use and necessity of function. I'd recommend going to a local retailer and using one in the store and comparing it to standard models.

    The DC24 is just a smaller version of the DC25. The cup is way too small for any amount of cleaning, so if you've got more than a one room apartment you won't be happy with it.

    Have you looked at the DC33?

    If money is a concern, take a look at the Shark Navigator. It's much lighter and smaller. Even better would be the Navigator Lift-Away, which is an upright and a canister in one AND has steering that is well balanced and works well.

    I used it and it's pretty good. :) I mean it's better than a normal vacuum!

    A friend of mine highly recommended it to me so I did a little research and findings suggest that they are cutting edge technology:

    great suction- ideal for pet owners

    compact for storage

    lightweight to save my back

    flexible to reach difficult areas

    and Amazon has the best price.

    Hope this will help:

    A friend of mine bought one, she really likes it but says it isn't worth the money. Me? I don't know, but after listening to her I wouldn't buy one.

    According to Consumer Reports, they work the same as all other vacuums, but cost far more.

    So, yes they are good, but so are all the other cheaper brands.

    I like them because you can get into awkward spaces and turn corners easily, they are very flexible.
