Rated 5 out of 5 by Dnannie Great vacuum!
I am so glad I ordered this vacuum. It is light, great suction , easy to swap from one attachment to another.

So far, I absolutely love the Dyson V8 Absolute. It is light weight, easy to use, and the suction is great, especially on high! The lasting power goes away faster on high suction, but regular suction seems fine for most jobs. I also love the ability to convert to a handheld tool, which makes cleaning high places and windows much easier. This is a winner!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pattypatch Great not being attached to the wall
I got this on the TSV and have used it almost daily because of the convenience. Only issue I have is that the color on the long barrel comes off very easily. I have used it a couple of time to vacuum underneath my dresser and bed and the color just scratches off very easliy. It should have been applied better so as not to scratch up so badly.
Rated 5 out of 5 by loulou64 I am so pleased
I got my Dyson V8 and charged it overnight. I had vacuumed my carpets the day I got the Dyson, but I tried it the next day anyway. I couldn't believe my eyes! I live in Florida and the soil is really sandy. Even though I have vacuumed the day before, the Dyson V8 STILL picked up dog hair and about 3/4 cup of sand that my other vacuum left behind. Very pleased.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Agman9095 Awesome vacuum!
This is by far the best vacuum I have ever owned. The Dyson V8 has a tremendous amount of power in a small package. The vacuum is light yet powerful enough to deep clean the carpets. The attachments are super and everything is well made as all Dyson products are. The hardwood floor or smooth floor attachment as well as carpet attachments maneuver in tight corners and the vacuum fits under just about every piece of furniture we own. Highly recommend!

Absolutely love the V8! I waited for QVC to run the sale on it and to be able to take advantage of flex-pay. Still pricy, but love the unit. My kids don't even mind vacuuming now! Quiet, picks up great, and easy to use. I have only had about 3 weeks, so as long as it holds up well, I am thrilled with it. Vacuum everyday now!
Rated 2 out of 5 by SurferSteve Ok Vacuum For High Price
First Dyson for me. Had really high expectations and was quite disappointed. Negative 1-The length of actual use is way to short (misrepresentation during presentation, sorry max suction which is frequently needed about 7 min, using brush roll for carpet on regular suction 15 min) 2-when emptying the unit it feels very flimsy and I am afraid it will break soon. 3-the wall unit had to be put together with the regular charger not giving you the option of charging the unit anywhere else. Poor design and on top not even mounting hardware included. 4- the blue color turned out purple not looking like anything on television. Positive. 1- on max suction it had vacuumed really well. 2- the attachments are great. 3-the unit is not to heavy.
Bottom line tough extremely overprice vacuum for what it offers. Still deciding if I will keep the unit
Rated 4 out of 5 by darcy01 Pros and Cons- Mostly Good
I almost didn't purchase because I was not happy with my previously purchased Dyson stick. The investment is major, so this would have been returned without question.. however...
Positive: when I saw the new way to empty the dirty bin and the soft head I said I'd give it a try. My upright Dyson died so I was in need of another vacuum.
Most of the time I don't have to touch any of the yukky dirt when I empty the dirty bin unless I continue to vacuum and it fills past the max. (The '6' model was a bear to open and get it unclogged and then put it back together)
My other stick Dyson didn't pick up the cat litter or dog food pieces or even dropped leaves from my house plants.. very frustrating... Double work by re-vacuuming and moping grrrrrr. But the new soft head really does work!!!
The soft head works great!! The only suggestion on the soft head is it is difficult to manage when vacuuming it has a mind of it's own. I think the ball feature would be nice.
Great on stairs!!
Negative: I find it difficult to maneuver the soft head especially under the couch and chairs.
Mine has yet to last 40 minutes as advertised, but at least I can finish most of the second floor before it 'dies'
