Worst product ever hands down!

Had this overpriced worthless paperweight for 12 months now. 2 and half minutes vacuum time before needing 8 hours charge! Beyond pathetic, bordering on fraud selling this complete junk!
Will never ever even entertain the thought of buying a dyson, will demand family and friends to steer clear and will warn anyone about the utter garbage if I see them purchasing. So bad it's put me on a mission! Show details

Bad and poor design

Motor turns off and on with full battery. Pull out the final filter, put my hand over the hole and guess what. It sucks with NO stopping and starting. Piece of rubbish Show details

Made scratches on our floor

The battery life is disappointing, using it on max only lasts 2 minutes! The head also stops rotating now and then for no obvious reason. But worst of all is that it makes scratches on our wooden floor, and I can’t find out why. So we’ve stopped using it. Would not recommend. Show details

Best vacuum I’ve owned

I absolutely love my Dyson v8 origin. It’s so easy to operate. I’ve got young kids and dogs, so the place gets messy quickly so this vacuum gets all the mess they leave, and works great on the hard floors and the carpeted areas of our home. It’s easy to empty and clean filters. Love how it comes with the wall attachment to charge it and hold 2 accessories also. Highly recommend Show details

Great vacuum cleaner!

Bought this stick vacuum to replace a cheaper other-brand vacuum. It does a great job picking up cat hair and dust (I'm horrified, yet impressed, at how much dust it picks up!). Hight recommended. Show details

So handy!

My Dyson is used every day multiple times. I love that it can be hung on the wall and is accessible. My kids think it's fun to use so it's no longer a chose but a fun activity. Overall I'm happy with the strength of its suction and battery life. Show details

Lifechanging!

How I wish I had had this vacuum when my kids were growing up! It would have made my life so much easier. Yes, to me it did seem like a lot of money for a vacuum cleaner but it is worth every cent! It cleans like a breeze and is so easy and convenient to use. I don't to change vacuum head when going from hard wood to carpet or rugs, so easy just to quickly grab and use. The mechanisms for pulling apart, cleaning, changing tools, etc is so smooth and easy. I'll never have anything else now. Show details

Ok but not sure about the new motorbar feature

Just bought a new V8 Origin which has the new Motorbar Cleaner Head which claims to have 56 hair removal vanes. I don't know how effective it is. It seems to make a really really loud rattling noise when using it on tiles or wood. And when using it on carpet, leaves a whole lot of groove marks on the weave. Has anybody else experienced this? Maybe i have a faulty head? Dyson advised it's normal :/
I've attached a video. Show details

Love It

Love, love, love this. I find using this so much better than my Dyson barrel. It’s so easy to use. Just have to take it off the wall and it’s ready to go. So good when you just have a small area to be vacuumed. I find it quite lightweight and easy to use given I have arthritis in my hands and fingers. Yes, it would be better with a switch that kept the vacuum running, but I actually find it easy to use. I use it on carpet and tiles and it does such a good job and is very easy to empty into the bin as well. I haven’t used the power switch yet, as I haven’t really found the need for that function. My housework is so much easier and quicker now. I would highly recommend this product. Show details ·  1

Terrible battery

Battery doesn’t last any more the a minute now . Did last about 10 at the start and that isn’t good enough at all in a 4 bedroom house . Takes about 4 hours to charge . Didn’t ever really pick up pet hair or dust . Iv just bought a shark plug in hover because Iv had enough and I couldn’t rate that higher . Will never buy a dyson again .

Appalling battery life

This machine has been used for usual domestic tasks and charged appropriately. The big problem with this machine is that the battery life is appalling. The machine now requires its second replacement battery. Each has lasted approximately 2 years. Dyson claim that a battery is a consumable item - it may be but it should last longer than 2 years in domestic use. No more Dysons for me. Show details

This is a life saver

I use this Dyson on granite, floating timber as well as carpets in formal area and my car. I was asked not to use regular vacuum cleaner by my osteopath due to pain on my spine. As a result I had cleaner service weekly but stopped it during covid. My daughter left her Dyson vacuum when she went overseas. Now I use it and have no problem with pain unlike in the past. It’s design is great and worked well for a while. Lately had battery changed (3 yrs )there after it functions well. Show details ·  1

Does Dyson V8 Origin is effective for Hard floors and Tiles ?

It was fine for all solid floors. Noise was fine.
Just the battery life is very poor.
