Dyson V12 Detect Slim: Features

The Dyson V12 Detect Slim Absolute is an impressive vacuum cleaner that exceeded our expectations during testing. With a child, two long-haired pets, and two adults working from home, our reviewer's household produces a lot of dirt and debris, and the Dyson V12 Detect Slim easily handled it. The vacuum cleaner's maneuverability was a standout, as it easily navigated tight corners.

The LCD screen was also appreciated, showing the particles removed and the time left for cleaning. Emptying the dust cup is also a breeze with the push of a lever, and the additional accessories, such as the duster brush and Hair screw tool, proved to be just as useful.

The Dyson V12 Detect Slim was able to effectively suck up both fine and larger particles on both carpeted floors and hard floors in our tester's home. The Fluffy cleaning head on a hardwood floor picked up every last grain of flour, oats, and cookie crumbs, often in one fell swoop. The Motorbar cleaner head was similarly effective on carpeted floors.

Vacuum cleaner deals

Amazon's Prime Day is now here, and the popular online retailer has unveiled a new batch of deals for its Big Deal Days event, running October 10 and 11. Vacuum cleaners have always been a significant part of this bi-annual sales event, and we're glad to see they are a major focus again this fall.

We spend a significant portion of the year eagerly following the best vacuum cleaners in the market, and we get excited when they're about to go on sale. Therefore, we have been (and will be) meticulously scouring through the best Amazon Prime Day deals before, during, and after the mega event to save you the trouble.

If you plan to buy a new vacuum cleaner before the year ends, this event will be a great opportunity to snag the best deal. There is always the risk that stock will start to run low, so if you see a vacuum cleaner deal that you like the look of, then the time to buy is now - or when we gear up for our installment of the best Black Friday deals within the next couple of months.
