The Dyson DC35 Digital Slim vacuum is basically a very high-end stick model, which can also be converted into a hand-held. It has a very unique look to it, because it is so thin. In this review of the Dyson DC35 Digital Slim vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth the $300 price tag. Here’s a quick rundown of features found on this unit: a digital motor with root cyclone technology, detachable long-reach wand, crevice tool, dual power mode with different suction strengths, hygienic bin emptying, constant floor contact, a motorized floor tool, and it’s also Energy Star qualified. Another cool thing about this vacuum is that it has a fade-free battery – meaning, it doesn’t lose power at the end of the battery life. Plus it charges about 3 times faster than most of the competition.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Dyson DC35 Digital Slim vacuum. First off, the $300 price tag is sure to keep most potential buyers away. It has to be one the most expensive stick / hand-held models out there. Another issue I have with this model is that the battery life is far too short. If you have it on max suction power, the battery life is a measly 6 minutes. To be fair, any cordless model you buy has a very short battery life – and this is no exception. I also don’t like the fact that you have to hold down the trigger button in order to clean. I suppose they do this to conserve battery life, so I understand somewhat. Lastly, the dirt container on the Dyson DC35 Digital Slim vacuum cleaner is pretty small, so you’ll have to empty it almost every time you use it. All in all, I really do like this little model a lot. It has it’s faults and is very pricey, but you just can’t help from liking it. I’m giving it a 4 / 5 star rating, even with it’s issues.
