    Anyone own a Dysan Digital Slim cordless vacuum? Ive seen some ads for it, and for $299 its a bit pricy, but the cordless bit, plus its convertibility from a floor/carpet vac to a handheld furniture vac is appealing, since I own 4 cats.

    We tried a cordless vacuum (not Dyson) and ended up returning it. We even tried Roomba at one point just to help keep things tidy in between regular house cleaning. They just do not have the power which a corded vacuum has. Cordless vacuums are great for quick pick-up's but I would strongly encourage you to keep a corded vacuum around for regular house cleaning.

    Agreed. Battery power just can't match 120VAC. Try a Kenmore cannister, we bought one on the recommendation of our housekeepers and they are very happy with it. I think it cost about what the Dyson costs.

    I purchased the Dyson Ball vaccuum about 4 months ago and I'm very pleased with it.

    We got the DC25-Animal refurb from Overstock in January after reading recommendations here and are really pleased with it. Best design of plastic that I've ever seen!

    Thanks all. I have a pretty good carpet vac. Was mainly wanting the handheld/furniture part. From the comments, Ill just look for a separate handheld vac to supplement my corded carpet unit.

    Don't have that model Dyson, but we have a 14-Ball for 6 years now, minor repair a year ago - still under warranty at that point. We love it. Still sucks! Greatly!

    Have it and it's great for hardwood and tile floors. On carpet you can feel it drag, but it is good for a quick pickup.
