    Dyson have done it again!

    Having used and been impressed with Dyson products for a number of years I was very interested to see how Dyson would make the next big leap in Vacuum technology and they did not fail to impress. Members of our family have pollen and dust allergies so we have always put an important emphasis on having a vacuum that provided a high level of cleaning in order to provide them with as much comfort as possible while in the home. The Dyson V12 Detect Slim Absolute has given us extra piece of mind with its Laser Slim Fluffy Cleaner Head and Piezo Sensor. The Laser clearly illuminates dust, dirt and debris making thorough cleaning far easier and faster. The V12's clear display measures the amount and type of dirt that your are picking up, so when the numbers stop climbing upwards you instantly know that you have given your home space an excellent clean. One of my favourite features is the Auto mode, the Auto mode adjusts the vacuum suction as required depending on the amount of dirt that it is detecting using the laser and sensor, in short the vacuum is intelligent. It goes without saying the Dyson V12 Detect Slim Absolute like all its predecessors glides effortlessly across surfaces and round tight corners. It's an emphatic 10/10 for the Dyson V12 Detect Slim Absolute
