This review is for the Dyson DC07 Vacuum cleaner. This is a very powerful vacuum cleaner. It picks up an amazing amount of dirt from your carpets. And it's very easy to see how much it is cleaning since the dirt is visible from the outside of the vacuum. There is a line on the side that shows you when to empty the canister. It's very easy to empty you push a button and the canister comes loose and then hold it over your garbage can and push another button and the bottom opens and the dirt comes out. Then just close it up and put it back on the vacuum. The attachments take a little while to get used to using and I don't think there is as much flexibility with the attachments as some of the vacuums I've used in the past, but the amount of suction you get makes it worth the inconvenience. The vacuum is also fairly heavy and is very loud, but again, the house seems so much cleaner and less dusty with this vacuum, I will live with these issues. I feel it is definately worth the money and it does work well on wood floors as well as carpeting.
