This Dyson is NOT IN STORES YET. We got to pants it right here at AT. And for this Test Lab, we gave it to our special correspondent, Rebecca B, who lives with the challenging crew above who tested and video'd the whole thing. See their video below the jump!
Review: So, we realize that as a house of 9 twenty-somethings in Brooklyn subsisting mainly on frozen pizzas and expired Starbucks sandwiches (if we're lucky enough for Kate to get some closing shifts that week), we're not the typical testing lab for high-end vacuum cleaners like the Dyson DC24...
But that certainly doesn't mean that we have less dust bunnies lurking around the floorboards of our house, and the first three weeks of living with just a few brittle brooms we grandfathered in from our previous residences did little to convince us that life without a vacuum was really that essential to our identities as starving artists.
Our only complaint? She's just a little stiff to snuggle with. Other than that, we have to say we find her... simply, irresistible.
*Swivelly, which is great for dancing
*Super suction power, reducing the need for accuracy in sweeping technique for total floor coverage
*No vacuum bags to buy, plus, it's fun to empty the canister (cha ching!)
*Light and easy to carry, making it possible to double as a super-hero weapon
*No remote control (?)
*Split among 9 people, it would still cost $44.44 per person, which translates to... a LOT of frozen pizzas.
