What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
Dyson V8 Absolute
  • Especially nice are the 2 heads, for different floor types. (carpet and laminate or wood floors)
  • Excellent product, capable all types of jobs, only complaint is that the long tube gets scratched fairly easy.
  • This is our first Dyson. I was hesitant because it wasn’t a traditional roller-type vac... but it has not disappointed!
  • If you can afford it buy it. You will not regret it. No matter what type of floors you have.
  • This dyson is worth the purchase! Strong suction, good battery life, usable on variable surface types at one time.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
 
Dyson V8 Absolute
  • It’s a great vacuum. Light weight and easy to use.
  • It is perfect. I used before same brand. But v8 is absolutely perfect than others. More convenient, more light, easily clean with cord-free.
  • I LOVE my cordless vacuum! Easy to use/charge and very lightweight.
  • I purchased my dyson to get my steps and tight areas cleaned. I need it to be light weight due to having shoulder issues.
  • The whole design of the V8 is good and simple, even the wall mount and charger

What customers say about "Features"
 
Dyson V8 Absolute
  • The Dyson V8 has many improved features from the V6.
  • I use the vac for quick spot/area cleaning so the cordless feature (and how light it is) fits the bill. Another feature I like is no bags to constantly replace.
  • This is a great improvement on the Dyson cordless vacuum. More power and battery life. I like the new easy to empty dirt feature.
  • Waited for this V8 motor Dyson vacuum to go on sale, good product and use often, great cordless feature
  • Great performance and features, easy to empty. On full power the battery will probably help clean one vehicle. But the standard selection is deceptively powerful.

What customers say about "Power"
 
Dyson V8 Absolute
  • The battery lasts a while. It is a great cordless vacuum
  • This is a replacement for my V6. Great improvement. Battery lasts more than 20 min.
  • I had the previous model and 20 minutes of runtime didn't usually last long enough to do the whole house.
  • Very easy to use, works great & battery holds charge
  • Lasted four times before the battery would not charge anymore
