I was tempted to get one. Glad to hear a good (real) review. Ended up with a Roomba 530 myself- which is perfect for pet owners.

Hard choice conical vs vacuum. I guess you had to prioritize...

Re: Roombas, the best tweet (twitter) I've ever seen had to do with a roomba and a pet. Wife tweets her husband, "Just came home. Dog had left a present on the floor just before the weekly deep cleaning cycle on the roomba. Yes, it's everywhere."

So, the wife brings home a DC25 Animal for Christmas, and I am all sorts of wigged out that she spent that kind of coin on a vacuum! But hey...she "got it on sale"  ::)

If she is happy - you're in the 50/50 range.

I was really hoping for a thread about Dyson spheres...

That was my first thought too.

SF geeks... go figure...

we've had our Dyson for at least 7 years now and it still does a great job.

That is really good to hear.

 :D, yea she is happy.  I am not too serious about those roller eyes. 
Pretty good situation actually, "I" got her a dyson, and "she" got me a keg setup. ;)

Words to live by... 8)  Especially when I'm vacuuming the house.  ;D

Anyone ever use the air blade hand dryer in public restrooms? That thing is awesome.

Yeah, quite often. They are becoming quite popular in airports. I think the way they work, is they actually peel the skin off your hands, leaving nothing but dry meat behind. Those things are freakin' sweet!

Those fish scales can be a real bugger.  The Dyson can handle it though!  Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Anybody drive one?

So, the wife brings home a DC25 Animal for Christmas, and I am all sorts of wigged out that she spent that kind of coin on a vacuum! But hey...she "got it on sale"  ::)

And yea, we do a lot of vacuuming, with five household pets.  We don't have a lot of carpet, but many rugs and hardwood, and vacuuming was a real chore and took at least a hour and a half.

But, I now admit, this thing is so freaking cool, I really don't mind the task anymore.
I kid you not, you can steer this sucker with your wrist and can get really good at it.
It fits right up against stuff, makes 90 degree turns, and sucks like a tornado.

I hope it lasts.

Mine is purple
but they look like this:




And ya'll are thinking I coulda had a conical instead? :D






i've had my dyson animal for eight years without a single problem.
