Fantastic. We love our 'Grand Vac' which is a dyson and we call this one 'Petite Vac' . We are both o.a.ps and the DC34 is excellent and much safer for us to use to clean the stairs. We can whip round upstairs easily and only need to carry big version up every so often for a 'deep clean'. Great for picking up bits after the grandchildren have departed and invaluable to clean crevises in settee. Being light weight great for cob webs and whizzing along skirting boards. Not cheap but worth every penny. Its sturdy and robust. Great for clening inside of car. Attachments sensible to cover whole range of cleaning problems. We both just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rhillier6 What a great little pickup
I must admit I love the Dyson range, I have an up right & the smaller animal. Before I bought this animal I had the model before, which was great at picking up any kind of mess, but it only had a 6 minute battery life, that was my only moan, but the new model animal has taken this into account & has 15 minute or 13 miniute on full power, which means you are going to be hard pushed to run out of time, as the animal is only for quick jobs. The addition to 2 power settings is a great addition as we'll. I'm really impressed for such a small machine how much it picks up.
I can highly recommend the animal as a great addition to the home or car.

This blows all other handheld vacuum cleaners that I've used over the years out of the water - both on performance and ease of use. My car interior has never looked so clean. Even the sand stuck to the boot carpet pile came out with minimum effort using the 'boost' function.
The other one really big plus in my book is the weight and feel of the DC34. Some handhelds I've used are quite heavy and awkward. This just feels great to use.
The price for this cleaner may be a fair bit more than average, but you get what you pay for. My experience of Dyson vacuum cleaners over the past 10 years is that they will work well and last a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiltingaddict215 Does what it says on the box.
We bought the Dyson DC34 because we already have a Dyson upright and wanted a small handheld for quick clean-ups and for vacuuming the cars. It is an extremely effective vacuum and we keep it plugged in and fully charged up so it's there when needed. Useful for small spaces and especially handy for vacuuming upholstery. It's a little on the heavy side and you need to be careful not to have the 'extra power' button pressed for too long as the battery runs out much more quickly on the high power setting. But the high setting is great for getting up dog hairs! Like all Dyson models, this one is very easy to empty too. Happy customer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by honsec Fantastic little cleaner!
I bought this for a motor caravan as we have a German Shepherd dog. I had tried a friends before I bought it as the price is quite expensive. What a joy it is to have something that actually does what it says on the box! The dog hairs are picked up easily and without any fuss and I have a lovely clean motorhome. Before I bought this I had to get down on my hands and knees and really work rather hard to keep the carpets clean. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and have recommended it to friends. It may be slightly expensive but it well worth the money. I am usually distrusting of adverts but in this case what Dyson say is true. Fantastic bit of kit!!

This is my third dyson purchase and I am as pleased with this machine as I have been with any of the other bigger machines. There is very good power and suction and its simple and light to use all over the house. Essential for quick flick over jobs when you do not have time for a big clean. Awesome for the car as my teenage son will testify and not only did he do his own car but mine too on one charge !! Its a 3 hour recharge whcih can be a bind if your dont know how run down it is before use but I tend to run mine out and recharge immediately for next use - teenage son never puts it on charge but hey he did clean my car !!

I didn't really buy this for use in the home, I have a very long drive and so it is difficult to vacuum out the car and so I wanted a cordless vacuum and chose this based on previous reviews. No complaints so far and I must admit I have also used it in the kitchen rather than get out the big Dyson. I was a little concerned that 5 minutes of 'boost' suction wouldn't be enough to do my car, but actually it's surprising how much you can accomplish in such a short time. Quite pricey for the little use it gets, but SO much easier than dragging the big vacuum out to the car and suction is tons better than any other I have tried.

I admit I had reservations about buying one of these but within minutes of trying it out I was won over. I had worried about whether the 15 minute battery life would be enough; however I hadn't factored the fact that you can just work in little bursts. This is something I know I am going to use a lot, and I'll probably keep cleaner house too, as getting out the big mains vacuum cleaner requires much more effort than grabbing this and getting to work. In use it has lots of suction and seems particularly good at getting dust out of corners. It also did a good job on the car too ... as I suddenly wanted to try it everywhere.
