Jeremy Zawodny’s post about his Dyson reminded me that I too want to say: I love my Dyson vacuum cleaner. I got the red DC07 model (base model + floor cleaner but no animal attachment), in part because I love the color red. (I know, that’s a silly reason.)

Consumer Reports says that it’s not as good as some other (less expensive) vacuum cleaners. However there’s an emotional attachment that many geeks have to the Dyson. I think it’s partly the Dyson story, partly the attachment system (which is annoying but cool), and partly the ease of maintenance. Or maybe it’s because the vacuumed dirt is visible so you can tell that it’s working. I can’t tell, really.

In any case, I like it.
