It's a banner headline on the SBS site. I was expecting it to be a handheld radio but no - it's a vacuum cleaner!!

Friends have got one of these and disappointed in that from full charge the battery life is about 5 minutes with a 4 hour recharge time - but to be fair to Dyson it does state the running/recharge times.

Brilliant bit of PR - doesn't say what stand it's on (BigNick's pile of bricks springs to mind!)

So will you be demo'ing these on the YBW stand????

Our close neighbours in the marina have one, it looks cool, & works well for 5 mins!!!

We have a small cylinder vacuum from Tesco's (£14.99) 1400w with free bags! Damn good suction too!

Its great and hoover up stuff when plugged into mains! Can buy lots of these for the cost of a Dyson!

I think it looks like a ray gun from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Can't stand Dyson stuff anyway.
