Constant clogging, difficult to empty,
I have a very hard time believing the reviews for this product are genuine. It is a cheap piece garbage.
Literally every single time I try to empty the canister, I need to stick my fingers in as far as possible to try to remove the dirt and debris. Often, I need to use the back end of a spoon or something to get them out. This is due to the ring inside the canister. Because the dirt is often trapped at this level, the vacuum clogs constantly while in use.
Suction power is miserable. I have to run it on full power mode to do my carpet, and eve...n then it is simply not clean. On the standard level the thing won't even pick up grains of rice. And on high of course the noise is like a banshee and the battery dies in minutes. When I use the thing, I literally keep the trigger down while I run to the bin and hold it over before releasing the power. This is because the tube will be full of stuff that will just instantly fall back to the floor, because it's not powerful enough to pull it all the way in. The last sub-$100 plug-in vacuum I had beats this hands down. I'm on this site now looking for a new one and signed up for an account just to write this review. Hopefully others will see and not make the same mistakes I did.
Efficient but has a high pitched banshee like wail. Perfect for a horror movie sound track.
The vacuum cleaner picked up dust well on tiles and floorboards and was easy to use. As mentioned the noise is the main problem. Ear muffs are a must when using.

Powerful stick vacuum, great battery life and awesome value
Coming from several Dyson models that didn’t have enough battery life to do our whole house we gave the Dreame V9 a go. 230 sqm house (mixture of tiles, timber and carpet) is easily done on medium power with some turbo action thrown in where needed. Never runs much below half battery life. I love the 'toggle' style power button option as you had to hold the Dyson button down constantly which was a pain. For the price this vacuum is awesome, and I’ll definitely look at xiaomi models next time I want to buy.

Love this vacuum, awesome performance and an affordable price
We have a labrador that sheds fur wherever he goes. We had a couple of expensive vacuums with pet hair foot (the latest was a Dyson ball). I was sick of the cord and wanted something that I can just use daily (on carpet and tiles) to suck up the fur. The Xiaomi works so well!!! I have had it for about 7 months and I'm so happy with it. If I had to find a negative, it would be that it can get tricky to empty it when you let it fill up too much. Never had any issues with battery or suction. Considering the affordable price I'd say it's a bloody good vacuum.

Owned for 1 year, vacuum not as powerful as hoped and part now broken off so no longer usable
I've owned this vacuum for just over a year and have used it as a supplement to my robot vacuum cleaner, on a variety of surfaces (hardwood, tile, low pile carpet) but mainly it's purpose has been for the stairs and dusting cornices and corners where dust settles and is hard to reach.
It replaced a Dyson barrel vacuum which I found cumbersome to lug around a 2 story home.
I found the suction on the Dreame V9 to be lacking for dust collection and the brush crevice tools bristles too soft, so they would bend a lot, making them not very effectiv...

Great cordless vacuum cleaner
I received this cordless vacuum cleaner 1 1/2 wks ago. It’s very versatile. I use it on carpet and cork. It’s very easy to use. My 10 year old granddaughter loves using it and vacuumed downstairs and the staircase. She demonstrated the vacuum cleaner with the different heads to her Aunty. It hangs on the wall and everything fits together very well. The suction is great. There are three different levels you can use and the maximum suction is very strong. Apparently on the lowest setting you can use it for 60 mins. It has not run out of power yer. I can highly recommend this cordless vacuum cleaner

Good for a year till it stopped working!
I'm one of the biggest Xiaomi supporter, I've got Watch, Lights, Cameras and I bought the Vacuum too thinking that it was another "well build and reasonably priced" product that made the brand great - big mistake!
At the start was good but after 6-8 months suction & battery life was getting worse and worse.
I didn't think much about it but one day stopped working completely.
Contacted the customer service and they told me that nothing could've been done because I bought it from Catch of the day so I had to contact them.
The store from catch of...

This is a truly wonderful cordless stick vacuum. I got the carpet head, and it works a treat. I own a Dyson V8 absolute, and it picks up more on the lowest setting, even after going over the carpets with the Dyson on high first. (I had just taken the Dyson apart and thoroughly cleaned it, along with the filters). The battery lasts plenty long enough for my needs. I have absolutely loved the Dyson. I have had it for about 3 years. Times move on though, and Dreame V9 is even better. Especially for the money. It's a great machine. Just don't purchase one from Dick Smith/Kogan. They are rubbish.

Battery doesn’t last
Only got the vac in November 20 and chose it because of the good reviews. Was impressed by the great suction, but immensely disappointed that the battery only lasts about 15 minutes before you have to recharge it again.

Started off great
For the first month my vac was great I raved about it to workmates... but now for some reason if I use it and then take my finger off the trigger, most of what I vacuumed up falls back out the head like it never made it to the bin part. I’ve checked and there isn’t any blockages. If anyone know how to fix this please let me know!

Excellent stick vacuum
I've only had my Dreame V9 V9P stick vacuum for a couple of weeks but in that short time I'm very impressed by a) its battery life, b) its performance and c) the quality of its manufacture. I bought the model with the soft roller and carpet head combo and for the small additional price, $40,I don't think you will regret doing so also.

Made vacuum cleaning very easy
I love the product. I had it for three months and I use it every day, it’s quick and quite.
It works perfectly on wood floor and not bad in carpet. Easy to clean, to charge and to swap attachment. It looks modern and cool. Love it!
I wish it had the option to leave it on without keeping pushing the button (like my old vax had), but that’s the only negative.

Better than a Dyson
Just received my vac and I love it. Suction is amazing. Has lots of attachments which is great with stairs and my dog hair.
Would highly recommend this over a Dyson, although a little heavier.
Great value for money.

Been using Xiaomi dreame V9P since last 1 month... Am very happy with its performance.... absolutely loving its soft roller head for my hard floor.
Battery timing is also good.....

Excellent buy at reasonable price
First time I ever used a cordless handheld vacuum cleaner. Very happy with this product in terms of quality and the color I got, red. It can clean well on timber and tiles flooring. The suction power is good too. It is not heavy and very convenient to use. Overall a happy customer.

Questions & Answers
has it got a power head not a turbo head?
I think I accidentally put some water in the battery compartment while clean-washing this vacuum cleaner. And now, after leaving it for drying 24 hours, and plugging back to charging, this is not starting, and the charging light always stays blinking only at the first step of charge.
Do you guys know, what else could be done? I bought this on eBay and through the seller “oz_accessory”, but now I don’t seem to find the contact details of this seller on eBay (neither any search results come up on google with this seller’s name). Any ideas/suggestions please?
That’s disappointing because it is a good stick vacuum cleaner. I bought it through Kogan. Just like you I would have dried it in the sun for a while. They have instruction manuals online. Maybe that can give some more information
There’s nothing mentioned about it in user manual only it mentions a strong warning to not put water. Feels like the unit has doomed.
I’m renting and can’t drill holes into a wall. Can it be charged without installing the docking station on a wall?
Hi Dotti. Yes you can. The charger can be plugged directly into the vacuum in the back of the handle. You don't need the docking station at all. It's just for convenience. Hope this helps.
Great, thanks a lot :)
Hello Dotti, I agree with R Wake’s answer. It looks great hanging on the wall and is convenient but not necessary. Enjoy this cordless vacuum cleaner. I am very happy with it. Ineke
