DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Same! I like the looks of the ~DC44 and DC59, but not this :S

I wonder if a DC59 wand will fit?

Looks like they have changed the tool socket again.

This is the improvement I was waiting for. I always thought the battery life was the biggest issue with their cordless machines. 40 minutes puts it on par with my gtech airram. The screen scraper is also a neat idea, I have to clean the screen on my dc59 frequently.
I know the cordless machines are somewhat controversial for many of the members on here, for me personally they are the only current machines dyson make that I am interested in purchasing. This does make me glad I didn't buy a v6 absolute!

Overall, love the battery life, like the bin, like the new max switch, the color is iffy, and I HATE that they changed the tool socket.

Parwaz, thanks for bringing this to our attention!

Still waiting on that year-and-a half-old robot lol!

Oh no, well spotted though :) Tools will be a pain in the rear unless they are making a new generation of tools for their future vacs

Dyson DC16: You're welcome ;) I love the battery life, the suction power and the head, thats about it :/ I prefer the looks and the V6 total clean overall. The orange wand is so ugly, why  :'( It would look better in either satin red, blue, silver or purple IMHO

I'm also waiting on the robot as well haha, think it will launch this year in the US

How well will that shroud scraper work if it gets gunked up/something small gets caught in the shroud etc?

I'll wait for you blokes to get one and report back. Have to say 450 would buy an amazing car, not a flipping dustbuster!

Haha true :))
I'll probably get the V6 total clean unless they have different V8 colour variants that I might like, I quite like the DC59

Never said I paid full price for my dc59!  ;D Admittedly my dc59 is probably the most I have ever paid for a "flipping dustbuster" but in my mind it was worth it.

If I were to buy a brand new vacuum right now it would be another miele. They have re-released an s4 over here for half the price of the same-spec s6. That's what I would go for.

Looking at it again, the color combo is really, really bad. The orange just looks off, would have been better with a silver or red wand. And beko is probably right with the shroud scraper, being a new feature on a dyson it will fail on some.

It does look lovely,  and probably is the best handheld you can buy that does floors and tools well

V10 first I bet.

Its an iffy marketing model in my opinion that new new one is sooooooo much better than the last. Its like saying our last one was crap and so will this one be in a year.

What I like about Sebo: "Here is our 1979 model. We changed the odd clip and bracket back in 1988, and again in 1995, but they still work just fine and last 18 years plus and look exactly the same as they always did for a hundred quid less than a Dyson - and will still be running when Beko is selling your 400 Dyson for 60 on eBay".

Dyson would have done just as well keeping the DC14 in production alongside the all new Clint Thrust V26 special edition with added price tag and extra blockupability.
