    I ordered the Dyson DC25 from QVC, it hasn’t arrived yet. But your DC65 sounds like a much better unit, why don’t they just sell the DC65?. Are these rejects or something?

    • Drbava says:

      I have had a DC25 for ten years, so I believe the DC65 is the newer version, more efficient and updated. The 25 has served me well these past ten years with pets, wood floors, tile , wool area carpets, and wall to wall carpets.
      It just recently started have some issues, but I have never had a vacumn lady this long with as little maintenance as this one. I’m sure you will be very pleased with your purchase.
