Amazon is still selling the Dyson DC 18 all floors Slim for $458 but the price has lowered for the DC18 slim on ebay. You’ll see a lot of ebay auctions end around 300$ for a new Dyson DC18 slim! It is an absolute steal, so sign up to join eBay auctions and see for yourself if you haven’t yet.
The reviews are showing that people are loving the fact that they can get Dyson power at almost 1 / 3 the weight of the other Dyson vacuums. Of course Dyson would not have such a sleek vacuum without having The Ball feature for maneuverability around tables, couches, or other furniture. The accessories for this newer Dyson model are much less cumbersome to attach and use. The brushbar is essential for areas that need deep cleansing.
The Dyson power is still there and the vacuum will never lose suction and the HEPA Filter lasts a lifetime as well. The 5 year warranty ensures that. Since this is an all floors Dyson Vacuum instead of a Dyson Animal Vacuum you are missing a few add-ons like carpet cleaning products and floor and Mini-turbine tools, useful for those with plenty of animals and / or hard to reach areas.
The best deals going on are still at eBay where there are plenty of auctions to buy Dyson DC 18 all floors Slim for 300$ or cheaper! Generally at Amazon and LNT you would need to pay 400-450 for this model.
