The best investment ever
Having children and pets this Dyson is easily my favourite home appliance. My floors are mostly hardwood with some carpet areas. Cordless and super powered, it's a dream to use! Dyson for life.
Purchased at Myer.

Cannot live without it!
Its amazing, so easy to use and remove all the dirt at the end of the vacuum. Vacuums up everything on my timber floors as well as carpet. I cannot live without it. Worth every penny.
Love stain but .......
I bought the v8 two years ago and mine hasn’t worked well. It starts and stops even though it’s charged and thourouly cleaned. I rang and was told to wash my filter but I can’t open it?
I’m disappointed.... thinking vac would be easier for me.......
Big Improvement on the V6
Bought this as an upgrade to the V6 Absolute. Got it $250 off RRP from Dyson in the Black Friday sale. Canister release is far easier, hard floor brush handles leaves and larger dirt more easily. Very happy with my purchase. :) Only downside is that the wall mounted V6 dock has to be changed out for a new dock (provided).

- V8 Absolute
"Absolute"-ly Unbeatable Product
I use my Dyson "Absolute"-ly brilliant V8 on all floor surfaces, mattresses and furniture and also have a 4 year old Dyson V6 which I use in conjunction with my V8. After recently having my left shoulder totally replaced, I got really behind with the vacuuming, and my large mat (in the photo) looked more like a 'Cat Mat' than a 'Floor Mat' because of a constantly shedding Ginger Cat, (the culprit in the photo below) until I used the 'Mechanised Head' of my V8. As you can see from the photo, it's an intricate Mat with the grain running in differ...ent directions and because of the 'channels' between the pattern, it's a pretty complicated Mat to clean, but as you can see my "Absolute"-ly V8, had it looking as good as new and wish I'd taken a 'before photo'. I have "Absolute"-ly no hesitation in recommending these Dyson Products to anyone. I am a firm believer in recommending a Product which performs as it's stated, but am not averse to also 'telling it like it is', if a Product does not perform as it should do.

- V8 Animal
I bought the V8 Animal Extra as I have a 1-bedroom apartment with a mix of carpet and lino, and I have recently adopted a dog so I was on the hunt for a vacuum that could handle different flooring types while still picking up all the fur and dander from the pup. I am so impressed (and slightly horrified) at how much dirt this vacuum picks up! The first time I used it, I emptied the bin 4 times, even though the carpets looked clean at a glance. I also used the attachments to get all of my skirting boards, window sills and up in the corners of th...e ceiling, and cleaned the whole couch, all in one charge. I can do the whole apartment on high power and still have plenty of battery left. It even goes smoothly over my shaggy rug, picking up all crumbs and dust that are stuck in the fibres. I also bought a docking station and it is super handy. My only complaints are that it doesn't pick up bigger bits of dirt/food when the main large attachment is on, it just spins them around in the end and spits them back out, and it tangles longer fibres and hairs around the spinning mechanism so they need to be untangled when you finish vacuuming. These are minor inconveniences compared to the overwhelming positives of the unit, so I would still very much recommend it!

Regarding the comment: Great Product but for one thing
I too love my Dyson cordless, I also have an older Stowaway Dyson, Love them both. Cordess is so easy to use and very effective. I use on Carpet and wood floors, and have a small Tenterfield Terrior dog indoors. I was intrigued to read that someone else is getting a sore thumb when using the machine, I was getting a blister each time so now protect the area with some elastopast tape. I do not think it is the machine itself, but how I hold it that causes the rubbing.

Suction is excellent on carpet. Hard floor works perfectly on low mode
Live beachside and first machine I've used that actually lifts sand with no problem. Very tidy wall mount system so it is always recharged when you need it. Very easy to empty and don't have to worry about bags.

Long-running battery life and gets into all the nooks and crannies of a room

- V8 Absolute Plus
I liked this vacuum. I primarily used the soft floor head on floorboards, and the beater head on the carpet. It worked quite well on both. The fluffy head is useful at picking up larger bits and bobs off a hardfloor.

Great vacuum for the whole house!
This is our second Dyson product, we had our first Dyson vacuum for a few years and decided on getting a new one. We settled on this one and have found the suction to work really well on both floor boards, tiles and rugs. I have used a number of the smaller attachments that come standard with the Dyson to get into tighter spaces and I have been impressed by how well it sucks us the dust etc as it is picking up things that were missed from the older one. The rugs are visibly cleaner as I was finding the older one wasn't able to pick up as much a...s it used to. I should also point out that I have only used the normal suction and not the power boost. The vacuum itself is a little heavier than the previous one so that is taking a little getting used to. The way that the dirt is emptied out is a little different but that isn't a big issue. I love that I can see the battery charge lights on the side so I know when its running low etc. I use it to vacuum our entire house (4 bedrooms) and have only had one battery light drop down. I am yet to decide whether or not to get the other vacuum head designed for floor boards, however the standard one seems to be working fine for now.

It doesn't have filter.

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.
- 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.
