Very smooth and easy to use!

This vacuum is compact, lightweight and smooth, yet powerful and productive. It comes in a compact box, without excess packaging. The instruction manual has easy to follow clear diagrams - the only thing it doesn't mention is which head is best for what surface (although the front of the main box has diagrams for this). It has 5 (all very useful) extensions heads. The extension pole does not extend, but is rather long. It empties very neatly and it is not messy in doing so. (Suggestion: practise emptying the vacuum with no dirt in to begin with, as the lid can be a little stiff, but once figured out, it is a great and clean way of emptying a vacuum). It lasts roughly 40 minutes from full charge (not on max setting), which seems plentiful. It is so easy to use and so great to walk around free from a cord, but have a really powerful, neat, smooth vacuum that can clean anywhere!

Pros: Clean and easy to empty, Cleans all spaces, Compact, Easy to manoeuvre, Powerful, yet smooth Cons: Storage of attachments

The Dyson V8 absolute is Brilliant

This cordless machine contains the power of a Full size corded hoover without the bulk and weight. The carpet head is brilliant on carpets and performs very well at removing pet hair. The hard floor head also picks up fine dust and bigger particles from the hard flooring without kicking anything about which is brilliant too. The mini motorised head is ideal for cleaning the smaller areas such as in the car and on the stairs. The crevice tool and the combination tool are also good at getting into small areas and dusting surfaces. The wall mounting bracket is brilliant to store and charge the machine, as it holds the machine securely in place until you need to use it. It also stores the two smaller tools on board. The wand is an ideal length, as it sits at just the right height for floor cleaning, and is long enough for high reach cleaning. The machine itself it lightweight and is very comfortable to hold. The trigger system is very good as it only uses the power when needed. The battery life is great and has ample enough charge to clean the whole house, with it delivering 25 minutes of runtime with powered attachments and 40 minutes with the standard tools. The standard mode is powerful and is great for a normal clean. When put into max mode, it delivers an unbelievable amount of suction that is great for tougher messes, but this will only give you 7 minutes of run time. It is surprisingly quiet in both modes. The three LED indicators are really handy as you can judge how long you have left to clean. The way the bin empties is really quick and easy, and the new dirt ejector means the dirt never has to be touched. The filters are really easy to access and clean, which also do a great job and taking out the finer allergens which is ideal for allergy sufferers. Because the machine is so lightweight and doesn't have a cord, it means it can be used in the home, car and caravan without hassle. This machine only has a few downfalls. One is that although the design of the wand looks great, the coloured paint will scratch easily. The last is that the dock doesn't have enough slots to hold all the tools which means they have to be put elsewhere. Overall this machine is great and will be replacing our corded upright as it cleans so well! I would highly recommend this cordless cleaner and receives a definite 5 stars from me!

Pros: Easy to empty, Easy to manoeuvre, Lightweight, No cord , Powerful Cons: All attachments can't be kept together, Wand will scrath easy

Wish I had bought one sooner

I live on my own in a town house this hoover is extremely light weight and brilliant to use. I love the fact that it is cordless, genius. But the best bit is the long pole for catching the cobwebs that previously have been out of reach for me. I wish I had got one sooner as it would have saved a lot of back ache. The 40 minutes charge is more than enough for me to hoover my stairs and small bits of carpet in my home.

Love this dyson!

I have had this vacuum about 2 weeks now. It is what I would call a "considered purchase" due to the cost. However, I would say it has been well worth the money I paid for it so far. It is light, easy to empty, and all the interchangeable tools make it very versatile. It works well on wooden, vinyl and carpeted floors. The charge lasts well but I tend to charge it straight after use so it's good to go for the next time. It has never yet run out of charge even when I've done a full vac. Handy for a quick clean up or a full spring clean. As easy to use as a broom, but with much better results! The only drawback is remembering to take the tools around the house as you go.

'Absolute-ly' brilliant

Easy to use, new emptying system is great, no cord is just amazing, on the whole changed the way I vacuume for good!


Great suction power compared to previous models had two before this one Really like the extra run time which was the main reason for replacing the last one Well done dyson !
