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

Great when it works

Good suction, love the cordless aspect however it worked really well for 6 months then the battery died, replaced the battery. Then it only worked for 1 to 2 minutes even tho fully charged.. wouldn't purchase another one. Show details

Love it. Can’t do without it

Even though it is an earlier model it is great. Would not hesitate to buy the same model as now much cheaper. Thinking of getting one for upstairs. V8 is still a good model to buy as have come down in price. Show details

High hopes

I had really high hopes for this product but unfortunately it didnt pass the check. The battery dies extremely fast and isn't strong enough. Would only recommend for small places with light dust, not a whole household. Show details

Perfect and light on hands

This vacuum is powerful enough to do daily cleaning (make sure you use the regular suction option for a prolonged time to clean.
Then you can use the Max suction for carpet / soiled areas.
The weight is perfect for me as I have a carpal tunnel. Show details

Excellent cleaner for pet hair

Bought this cleaner about a months ago and it does exactly what it said it would do and that is pick up all dog hairs off carpets, tiled etc. and other mess around the household. Also I love that it does not have a cord that you have to keep unplugging and moving around the house. I also use it in my car and it does an excellent job there too! Show details

Best battery life ever

I recently upgraded my Dyson to this new model and have never looked back. It is easy to use and the battery life is phenomenal. I have a 40 square house and it lasts the entire house. The ducking power is great and I am amazed by what is picked up by the vacuum 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

Disappointing

Very expensive vacuum so I expected it to clean. Hair constantly got stuck in the machine. I am extremely disappointed as Dyson has a great reputation. I don’t understand why now. I love to frolic in hard rubbish. I live in the inner city where people have a lot of money. I saw a Dyson vacuum in hard rubbish on every street in my area. People like me invested in a more expensive vacuum with the idea it would last longer and clean the best. Unfortunately neither was true of Dyson. I will never buy a Dyson product as I believe they spend more money on advertising than product development. Not worth the money Show details

The perfect vacuum

We purchased this new from the Dyson eBay store and saved $300 off the retail price

Although it's now much older than the newer models, it still works like new and after 2.5 years of usage I haven't noticed and loss in suction or battery life

Works well on tiles, timber floors and carpet. Sometimes hairs can caught on the automatic brush but it's very easy to remove

We loved this product so much we purchased it for my parents as well as my in-laws as a gift Show details

Defective piece received and dyson Cust care and repair care pathetic- dyson promises too much. Not worth $ and patience

Received defective piece, could not charge,
Refund rejected, replacement promised with new one. Painful return process.
Cust care aus is pathetic, can’t understand message. Gives fault commitments.
Waiting for replacement product for over 4 weeks. Show details

Nasty design

Will never buy Dyson again.

Pros:
-easy to get out and use
-accessories you get are good and useful
-easy to empty bin
-not overly noisy
-ok on tiles and hybrid flooring

Cons:
-price, it is just not worth the money overall
-the design of the handle/trigger is awful
-vacuum power head is not great to maneuver
-overall, the battery life of 40 mins is ok
-accessories and the prices are a joke Show details

Great little cordless vacuum, does the job !!

This little cordless vacuum is so good . Will vacum a 3 bedroom home on boost mode. Max running time is like 15min on boost mode and maybe 25min on normal mode . Very light and easy to maintain. Only cons I come across is that after a while the whole bin would Fall off when trying to empty it, I belive could be a factory or make fault , But dyson did fix it under warranty. Also dyson has great customer service! Show details ·  1

Good at first but horrible quality

The battery life is failing and only lasts 10mins on a full charge after 5 years. The housing has these microcracks in the plastic, the handle has got a crack in it. Never been dropped hard. You’d think after seeing Dysons durability testing facilities that the vacuum would hold up after 5 years. Replaced the motor assembly after a couple of months after purchase, as the red pull up lever to empty the bin broke. We had a purple and green dc05 we had since brand new until the motor blew because they ceased selling filters for that machine. Shame paying $800 for a expensive vacuum and it falling part after 5 years… 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

Really Sucky Motor

Well it does perform well, almost a joy to vacuum with. The only issue I have is that the battery is not very good as it has significantly dropped in its charge since now which is now around 7 months since new. On normal Vac it lasts OK however does not last very long now, and on high it drops rapidly. Lucky to get 6 minutes with it. Perhaps just a bad battery I am unsure.

Waste of money

We bought TWO of these vacuum cleaners in 17 months. BOTH DIED. Used on carpet and natural wood boards. Both units had very short battery life. Both were bought on special for pet hair. Bought the brand based on reputation and past experience of a barrel vacuum. Previously these vacuums were made in the UK but no longer and this may be the problem. Bought from different stores and fully refunded. Wouldn’t recommend Show details

Good - as long as the battery lasts!

It's a good vacuum, just found the battery didn't last as long as we expected, maybe the house is a bit bigger than the normal one, not sure but in any case works well and nice and portable! If only the dogs like it as much as we did!.
