4th Dyson might be our last Dyson

published

We've had the really big and heavy Dyson upright replaced with a smaller and lighter Dyson upright, and now we've replaced our long dead Dyson stick vacuum with a new Dyson V8.

The plastics have inconsistent colours, to the point that it looks like a reject.

The main issue is that it is purchased as a wall mount vacuum. The wall mount has oblong holes for securing it to the wall, but Dyson have failed to provide rubber grommets. The Dyson Service Center said "you have to go to your local hardware store and work out how to mount it" That's ridiculous.

I understand different wall types, but there are a couple of common types and supplying the grommets at a minimum seems like the only reasonable level of quality product.

That's hilarious. Just lie it down on the floor somewhere near an electrical socket.

At least you didn't offer to resolve it just for me, when it is in my opinion a fault in service to all your customers.

Battery only lasts 5 minutes

published

Battery only lasts 5 minutes!! Feels like it’s going to break in your hand while using it. After 6 months the battery failed and the spinning attachment broke so Dyson sent me a new replacement battery but same problem only last 5 minutes. It takes 2 full charges (4 hours) to vacuum my small 1 bedroom apartment. Other than that it does work well at vacuuming floors.

Purchased in for $800.

Had a V6 and wanted to upgrade without the cost of the latest version.

published

Current price NZ$499 looked a bargain compared to the latest offerings - and it is!
Does everything that was expected of it; better than the V6, and easier to empty with the newer mechanism.
Throw in the additional, small powered head, and it's the complete answer to any cleaning situation.
Our 3rd Dyson, and won't be the last.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi Online Store for $499.

This is a life saver

published

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.

I used on my carpets and wooden floor as well. It's just if they have something for cars. It would be icing on cake. It doesn't have proper equipment for cars.

Battery longevity

published

Use vacuum on all types of floor surfaces. Cleans well when in operation. Problem is that battery does not last as long as it states. Whole house cannot be cleaned in one hit. Even replacing the battery did not extend time to its full capacity. Vacuum does not present value for money.

Purchased in for $500.

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!!

Super efficient and easy to use

We have used our Dyson cordless vacuum for over 12 months now and find it to be so efficient on all types of flooring and so very easy to use. The life of the battery pleasantly surprised us along with the attachments for other uses such as car cleaning.

Useless don’t buy it

published

The suction is only half as good as my old Miele. The dust clogs the filter up every few minutes. It’s constantly stopping because of said clog up with only a quarter full in the catcher. It’s cheap plastic charging station is clumsy. You have to constantly change the head pieces for different floor areas. It’s actually the worst product I’ve ever purchased. I expected so much more with all the hype. Waaaay over rated.

Powerful Vacuum

published

This Vacuum has great power and is easy to charge and has a few useful tools. The 2 things I would like to be changed in a new model is the button that you have to press for it to stay on, it's exhausting holding that button continuously while vacuuming, it should have been hold down and it would get pressed and then you can vacuum and when you are done, you should be able to release the button. Also another battery would have been super useful to increase cleaning time.

Purchased at The Good Guys.

Low battery longevity

published

On the maximum setting, it goes flat after 10mins. It lasts longer on the standard setting, but not as strong. Vacuuming anticipating it to go flat. Had to keep the old corded vacuum for times when the whole house needs to vacuumed. It also can't pick up raw rice from tiles on either setting.

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!

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.
