    Hands-on: Dyson Cinetic DC54 Animal review

    By 17 January 2014

    Dyson ditched the bag, and now it's ditched the filter, but is it really that simple? We've been using the new Dyson Cinetic DC54 animal vacuum cleaner (£459) ahead of its official UK release to find out whether the new tech is worth the hype or whether...

    Dyson Digital Slim DC59 review

    By 17 November 2013

    You reach for the sugar bowl, you miscalculate how far away it is, it goes everywhere. Damn. You go to the cupboard, get out the classic Hoover, look for a plug socket, have to no doubt clamber behind something, unplug something or go so far away that...

    Dyson DC49 multi floor vacuum cleaner review

    By 26 July 2013

    Dyson has released an even smaller version of its multi-floor model, the Dyson DC49, and we've been cleaning our house for the last couple of weeks to find out whether it is any good. Can a smaller design, smaller bin, and digital motor still cope with...

    iRobot Roomba 660 review

    By 7 December 2012

    Cleaning your house is a bore, but sadly one that has to be done from time to time unless you are happy to live in a dirt-invested hovel - we doubt that - so is a robot vacuum cleaner the answer? We set one to work in the Pocket-lint office to find out....

    Dyson DC47 Multi Floor review

    By 6 December 2012

    The Dyson DC47 Multi Floor is the company's latest cylinder vacuum cleaner and promises to be more powerful, more efficient, and easier to use than previous models. But with the DC38 being very good, and not much changing in terms of size and weight,...

    Vorwerk VK100 pictures and hands-on

    By 4 December 2012

    Robotic vacuum cleaners are nothing new. On paper, the idea behind them is brilliant. They do away with the mundane task of cleaning, letting you get on with something else. In reality, most do little more than to glance at your floor, occasionally kissing...

    Dyson DC50 review

    By 30 November 2012

    Houses are getting smaller, our time is more precious, and yet we still have to do the vacuum cleaning. Something's wrong we agree, and it is something that Dyson wants to fix with two new vacuum cleaners; the DC50 and the DC47. The promise is this: a...

    Hands-on: Dyson DC44 Animal review

    By 17 October 2012

    There's something about a Dyson that not many other vacuum cleaner brands can match. Not only does the British company's line-up look futuristic and modern, but its big boys' toys are also sufficient enough to get fellas to do housework. The Dyson DC44...

    Vax Air3 multi-cyclonic upright vacuum cleaner pictures and hands-on

    By 27 September 2012

    We have all sorts of things land in the Pocket-lint offices and, although this one's far from a pocketable gadget, the Vax Air3 U88-AM-B's multi-cyclonic promises serious suction. This dust-munching upright has orange-coloured brushes that spin to help...

    Dyson DC 41 review

    By 22 February 2012

    Dyson continues to roll out, no pun intended, its new ball technology to the 2012 range of vacuum cleaners. The hope being you'll get your cleaning done even quicker than before. But is the Dyson DC41 - the new flagship model - up to the task, or is it...

    Dyson DC38 Multi Floor review

    By 18 February 2012

    There will always be two camps over whether you should opt for an upright vacuum cleaner or a smaller based cylinder option and Dyson continue to make that decision harder and harder for you each year. Launching in 2012 is the Dyson DC38, a lightweight...

    By 21 November 2011

    The iRobot Roomba 770 vacuum cleaning robot promises to clean your carpets without you having to lift a finger, but is it really that easy? Well, Pocket-lint has spent some quality time with the automated machine and can confirm that it sure is. Set it...

    Neato XV-15 robot vacuum cleaner invasion begins

    By 24 June 2011

    It was with some apprehension that we opened our doors to Neato XV-15. Inviting a robot into your house as a domestic servant shouldn’t be taken lightly. We’ve all seen what happens when robots go bad, become self aware and throw aside the shackles...

    Morphy Richards Vorticity Plus bagless vacuum cleaner hands-on

    By 5 May 2011

    Not quite so well known for its vacuum cleaners as its kitchen appliances, Morphy Richards threw Pocket-lint a bit of a curve ball when the company sent over its top of the line Vorticity Plus Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner to test out. Fortunately,...
