Yesterday, I bought Amy a new Dyson DC07 “Animal” vacuum cleaner.
Our existing Fantom Lightning wore out after only three years, and Fantom is now out of business. Apparently they were selling a licensed (and inferior) version of Dyson’s “cyclone” bagless vac technology, and after they closed shop, Dyson started selling his products here in the States.
We used the Fantom on our computer-room rug four days ago. Yesterday, we used the Dyson on it as a test. We ended up with about three cups of dust/dirt/fuzz that the Fantom hadn’t touched.
I like the fact that the entire thing can be broken down into small parts (and therefore, easily cleaned of any jams or blockages) without any tools. It’s also a nice purple color, like a vacuum an anime character would use. We got a great price on it here in town at ABC Vacuum.
