Regular readers will know of Topiary's struggles with packaging (for instance, trying to free curtain rods from their enclosures).
This vacuum slid right out and then the task of assembling it began. Seriously, Topiary must be retarded in fitting things together because it took almost an hour. The directions are artistic but useless. The only way she got it together was fiddling with it and getting lucky.
As for suction, this vacuum would probably suction the entire house with no problem--walls, ceilings, kitchen sink. It's rather hard to push but does a great job.
Disappointing: thought by buying a Dyson it would be on a ball instead of wheels. But it just has regular wheels. And still scared to get out the "wand" because it was only through the grace of God ever figured out how to get it into the vacuum. But as for vacuuming, it is cool to just dump the dirt instead of having to use a stupid bag. You can see right when it needs dumping.
All in all, gets a B+. Would have been an A if not so stressful to assemble. Dyson DC14.
