Dyson DC52 Miele Compact C2
  • One major design fault is that the handle cannot be attached to it without it taking a 45 degree tilt…
    Thomas - February 2016
  • The previous models did not have this design fault and the could be stored with the tube attached to the base…
    Thomas - February 2016
  • Nice and tidy…
    Thomas - February 2016
  • Has several annoying design faults as a result of the technology…
    Thomas - February 2016
  • A pretty annoying design fault…
    Thomas - February 2016
  • Well not a lot to be said it is a really beautifully designed Vacuum and the turbo brush is brilliant the floor head actually grips the lino if you have it on full power! The dial for power setting is brilliant as it is picture based for example there is a graphic of a carpet for the carpet power so you don't need to guess which setting to use…
    Mr. P. Darcy - October 2015
  • It is really neat too the three small attachments are inside the vacuum…
    Mr. P. Darcy - October 2015
  • Well designed…
    RS - February 2015
  • This is a beautiful quiet effective piece of kit…
    Miss mr somerville - January 2016
  • Has all the gadgets stored neatly inside so nothing gets lost or needs storing Big bag means less changing Love it Was last one in store as they were flying off the shelf, bought in sale so excellent price Not heavy to carry upstairs, moves about easily Highly recommend…
    Puppies - December 2016
  • Great design, excellent suction…
    JHW24 - May 2016
  • A well designed product, light and easy to use…
    Steve3dogs - February 2016
  • And love the fact that all the accessories pack away neatly into the body…
    Barney - January 2016
  • It's good having the tools at the end of the tube - easier than lifting the casing to get at them, which is what broke the old machine…
    M L Chadwick - May 2015
  • It is neat and light enough to carry up the stairs…
    Amazon Customer - March 2016
