I wish I had purchased this sooner!

published

My house is 4 BR, 2 living, both carpet and tile floors. I have done my research before buying my first Dyson. Initially, I wanted the hassle-free of code while having to take it and quick vacuum. Now I wish I had purchased this sooner. I use this every day for quick vacuum as well as my whole house. I can vacuum the entire house with the fully charged battery at medium speed. One of my daughters has a mild dust allergy, therefore I vacuum every room alternatively every day. On both surfaces, it vacuums well at medium speed without any problems. I already recommended this to everyone I know. This is a huge time saver and such an easy, light and effective product to use. I am hooked!!

Purchased in at The Good Guys for $499.

Quality for convenience!

published

Who doesn't like convenience yet powerful product? If i can clean my tile floor just by grabbing something handy and powerful then this is the product! I love our dog but not the hairs everywhere. With Dyson I can clean everytime I see fit. This has powerful suction. Best innovation ever!

Great product but it needs one thing!

published

I absolutely love my Dyson stick vacuum. It is so quick and easy to use and it actually makes vacuuming enjoyable. The only thing that I think is missing is a snib where it holds the button on so that you don’t have to hold it down yourself with your finger. I manage to get a blister on my pointer finger every time I use it!

Purchased in for $600.

Great Vaccum Clean, can't live without it.

published

I purchased the Dyson V8 animal from David Jones 4 years ago. The Vaccum had done an amazing job. I have all 3- Tiles, timber flooring and carpet and it always does an amazing job in all 3 surfaces. It is really handy when you have kids out and about as its a cordless vaccum and simply easy to clean up mass made by kids within minutes. It is definitely worth having one around.

I would give it a 5 star but i am starting to have battery problems now. But it has definitely done it job in the last 4 years.

Purchased in at David Jones Retail Stores.

V8 Animal

We have hardwood floors throughout our house but we also have a long haired dog. I know the V8 animal is designed for pets and we are very open to that fact, however my question is, would the standard Dyson V8 do the job just as well [or close to as well] given the hard floor consideration or do you really only recommend the animal or animal plus version even with hard floors? Huge thanks!

Hi Di, each models machine variation will have different accessories included with the machine. The Dyson V8™ Origin just happens to be a model with less attachments.

Dyson V8

Details

As of December 2020, the Dyson V8 is the highest-rated cordless and stick vacuum cleaner on ProductReview. As well as being the highest rated, the V8 is also more afordable than other Dyson cordless and stick vacuum cleaners - such as the V11, which is around $300 more expensive.

Features:

  • The V8 series includes 4 different vacuum cleaners, with a $100 difference in price
  • Two power options: Max Mode for extra power, which is good for tough clumps of dirt or pet hair; and Powerful Mode, which allows for longer usage, but may provide a slighlty weaker suction
  • A 5-hour charge provides up to 40 minutes of use

Points of praise:

  • Some reviewers purchased the Dyson V8 after owning the V6 and reported noticing an improvement. Although they didn’t claim to be unhappy with the V6, many said that the V8 was more powerful and picked up a larger quantity of dirt and dust.
  • The highest power setting (Max Mode) latest longer than expected. One reviewer was pleased that they could vacuum their whole apartment while still having plenty of battery life left.
  • The vacuum was lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, meaning that people could clean hard-to-reach crevices and corners of the house.
  • Three large, shedding dogs proved to be no match for this vacuum cleaner. A happy reviewer mentioned that they could finally remove the mess their dogs had left behind.
