Love Dyson products and the leave on button is a great

Picks up more than my i-robot. Is quick and easy to use, especially with the push on butter over having to keep your hand held in the same position the whole time. Love how it tells me when and where the blockage is. Only difficulty is emptying dust right at the top of the rubish collector but I use long tweezers to do this. No other brand I've used comes close to Dyson. Show 2 replies

No longer ‘Loving my Dyson V12’

See part 2 after 12 months

Part 1. Light weight and easy to maneuver ..
has great suction .. easy to clean and makes vacuuming tiles to carpet a breeze.

Part 2. 12 months on battery needed replacement luckily still under warranty but I was shocked it lasted only a year and also even after thoroughly looking after masses of dust collects in small filter and clogs even if you empty and clean after each use.. Show details

A must have for any busy household

This cordless vacuum is sleek in design, easy to manoeuvre, the battery is long lasting and it picks up so much dust.

I was somewhat skeptical prior to buying this vacuum that it was capable of all of the things that it was touted to be able to do.

Happy to say that I was proven wrong. This vacuum is so versatile, I used it to clean the floor, my car and my husbands car, all on the one charge of the battery.

Battery life is about 55 minutes and the suction is so good. Picked up everything including the fur from my 2 cats.

Highly recommend! Show details

Best vacuum ever

Ok I was a little lukewarm about purchasing this product. Dyson vacuums are expensive and they look so pretty with their cool colours and sleek design. Seems like they’re built for show.

How wrong I was. This vacuum does everything I need it to ie suck up every bit of dust on surfaces. It’s light, easy to empty and with a great battery life. Works on polished wood, carpet and tiles, and I also bought the mattress attachment.

Great product and definitely worth the spend. Colours are pretty too. Show details

So light! I love it

I had the Dyson V12 Absolute but it was so big and heavy. Went for the Slim Detect instead which is only 2kg in wieght. It needs emptying more often but is still far preferable to the larger model. I also like the green detect light but don't use it often as I use the carpet head the most. Show details

Dyson, other products now can empty bin automatically …

I was exciting getting it as my old dyson was not wireless. After using it for a period of time, there were more negatives i can find using it:
1.i have to use strong suction to get a clean carpet hut that only last 15 minutes, then it will ask to be charged .
2. When comes to empty the bin, i have to empty it outdoor. Otherwise all dust is will spread and i. I need to revaccum them again. So what s the point?
3. It s not easy to empty the bin, getting my fingers in to remove and take out all it out.

For a price you re charging, it s indeed a dissapointing invention. The only pro i can find is it s wireless and lightweight.

Perhaps v8 is better … i felt really regret buying this. Show details

6 weeks of light use and the cordless stick has snapped off in half

Purchased from JBHIFI for an eyewatering $1300.
6 weeks into light usage on floor boards ( no carpet), the main barrel and the cordless stick have snapped. As mentioned, light usage and the plastic inside the tube clean snapped from the main barrel. We have not dropped or "possibly smashed it against the wall" as suggested by Jb hi fi customer service.
We are then charged $65 to have it assessed ( under warranty) and 8 week wait to determine if the Dyson is faulty or we broke it. So we now need to buy a temporary Vaccum whilst we wait for their decision.....
dont waste your money on this product. Show details

Does the job, but wouldn't rave

Build quality is my main gripe. For the price, I would have expected much better. Cheap $200 vacuums have better quality plastic than this Dyson. Very disappointing. If I could have returned based on this, I would have. Its baffling why light-weight but durable plastic was not used?!
Barrel NOT easy to empty as the marketing suggests; you have to pull out the debris manually, it DOES NOT drop out automatically because it essentially wraps around the cylindrical barrel, especially hair, longer fibres etc.
Barrel size is fine for my apartment, but would be too small for three bedroom home or larger. Show details

So pleased with this vacuum

On reading reviews I thought the light was just a gimmick but it’s not! So good in those dark corners. It’s also easy to use with my arthritic wrists. Great machine highly recommended. Show details
