If you've ever bought a Dyson product--or even looked at one--you know that they tend to run pretty expensive.

In the case of the Dyson DC35 Digital Slim, you're looking at $299 for a cordless vacuum. That's a lot of dough, but the Slim, which is shaped more like a cleaning weapon than an appliance, has a dash of Dyson's usual innovative, fancy-sounding technology. It sustains suction level (even when the bin is filled up) with something called Root Cyclone technology, and it comes with a "fade-free" lithium ion battery that you just won't find in most other cordless vacs.

Overall, this is a really good cordless vac--maybe the best--but aside from the price, it does a have a few shortcomings. Check out our video review above to find out what they are. And if you've got a DC35 (or another Dyson vac), let us know what you think of it, good or bad.
