I think it’s high time I share my latest vacuums with you all!

First up is my brand new DC39. My fiancée gave this to me over the holidays and I’ve been having a blast using it! Originally, she planned to surprise me with a very clean Fantom Lighting because she knows I’m a Fantom vacuum guy, but she said the deal fell through. Instead, she opted for this new Dyson DC39, which, frankly, is even nicer. It has some serious suck—280 air watts—and is my first “real” canister vacuum.

I gotta brag on my fiancée for a bit; she’s good at getting me vacuums I like. A couple of years ago, she gave me my cherished Kirby Ultimate G Diamond Edition, too. Nothing makes a vacuum more special.

Anywho, the vacuum perfectly fills a gap in my “vacuum armada.” See, nearly 100 vacuums have passed through my hands, but only two have been canisters. One was an original Eureka Mighty Mite and the other a Pro Series Dirt Devil Can Vac, and neither were particularly strong performers. I had been specifically avoiding the canisters because my house has approximately 3,300 square feet and around 70% of that is wall-to-wall carpeting, a situation best handled by a large, powerful upright to cover lots of area and quickly. Where there isn’t carpet, there is hard flooring and six rugs. I had been using lighter uprights (Dirt Devil Broom Vacs, Orecks, etc.) for the rugs and a broom/dustpan for the floors. Where this previous cleaning routine “did the job,” the DC39 excels. The lightweight trigger head zips over all of these surfaces and provides the perfect amount of agitation for the rugs, cleaning them thoroughly without eating them alive like, say, my Sanitaire would, and I haven’t even begun to discuss the advantages of cleaning above floors without having to wrestle a stretch hose!

My second acquisition is also a Dyson. This time, a DC24. I saved this one for less than the cost of lunch that same day, a ridiculously good deal for such a low mileage unit. Presumably, this vacuum owes its trip to the thrift store to the hairpin clogging its nozzle-to-body bellows. Extracting it was all it took for me to set this Dyson back into action. Its bin and nozzle housing may look decently clear now, but you should have seen them before I took the vacuum for a few spins around the house.

As a big fan of Dyson vacuums, I feel very fortunate to have these two additions to my collection.

Wow! Never seen a red Dyson! Was that a special edition?

EDIT: I found it, it is a special edition. It's a Target Edition, came out in 2013.

It is about midway down the page: black-friday-deals-2014.blogspot....

Yes, when I first spotted this DC24, Target came to mind. Thanks for sharing the ad.

On a prior trip to the same store, I also spotted a blue DC25. Could these red and blue Dysons potentially be from HSN and/or QVC?

Nice. I think you'll enjoy a canister. I feel like every collector needs a good full featured canister or two even if they prefer uprights. I think canisters are the best thing for hard floor vacuuming and above floor cleaning. Way more efficient than a broom or dust rag.

I did some looking and found confirmation that the "Royal Blue" DC25 is exclusive to QVC, and I will assume that the red one is as well as the only thing that shows up when I search for "red dyson dc25" is images from QVC.

As far as I can read, the DC24 Blueprint was specifically for Target, and the DC25 Blueprint was available through Dyson's own website.

The following images are in reference to the DC25 in blue and are from Google (no I didn't buy it, Google just captured a weird URL).
