Dyson Slim is fantastic and a joy to use. The motorhead is as flexible as your wrist or arm positioning, makes terrific right angles. The only noise from it is air sound and the dogs are quite relaxed when I'm using it. The wand is so quick to use as an attachment that I do more and more odd areas daily. The bin is emptied without being exposed to dust and, having multiple allergies inc. dust, this is special for me. The suction is great. For me it is the difference between a Hummer and a neat sports car.
