Terrible service at Dyson and terrible product

I had 2 Dyson (V7 and V8). Both had battery died after just a bit more than a year.
Sent the V8 to Dyson for repair because the battery had 2 years warranty. It was obviously that the battery died but it took them 5 weeks to send the new battery and now at week 7 I still haven't received the machine back. Terrible service at Dyson and terrible product. And The Good Guys couldn't help either. Show details

Not the best but far from the worst

Great vacuum for smaller tasks, eg quick carpet cleaning, floating floors or car cleaning. Not great for bigger projects. Batteries are a serious issue but can be easily replaced. They have a great wall mount with easy charging but it seems if you leave it on 24/7 it effects battery life. Show details

Better battery

I have V8 cordless vacuum. Battery life always was cr#p. Went on E bay and purchased a aftermarket one. Best thing I ever did. New battery is a 6000mAh compared to Dyson's 2800mAh. Never flattened the new one yet. Easy to install. Remove 3 screws, pull old battery out and reverse procedure and charge to fill. Show details

Dyson V8 replacing my v7

Replaced my V7 as it was aging.It has a stronger suction and is easier to manipulate.
It is heavier and a little difficult to empty.
Better on my carpets than the V7 Show details ·  1

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

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

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