Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyWife02 Best Vacuum Ever
We just recieved our new cordless Dyson, and I can not believe how easy it is to operate. We have two pugs and our stairs were covered with hair. In less than five minutes our stairs looked and felt as good as new! Another thing I love about this vacuum is how quiet it is! My husband can be in the next room on a call and I can vacuum without disturbing him. The attachments are also super easy to switch out.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LC Girl Never Had a Vacuum Cleaner Like This
The amount of tiny particles and animal hair this vacuum picks up has stunned us. We have an open floor plan and just love the cordless. This is the best vacuum we have ever bought and it is well worth the money.
Rated 1 out of 5 by winkfamily Does not work
We received the vacuum from QVC as planned but it did not work. My wife plugged it in and let it charge over night; the battery had 3 bars. When she pulled the "trigger" nothing happened. Dyson's customer service was completely useless. I am returning this to QVC.
Rated 4 out of 5 by MtnGirl AWESOME except...
This is an awesome vacuum BUT for those who have even a little arthritis in their hands it becomes difficult to operate as you have to continually hold down the 'ON' button the entire time that you are vacuuming.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Colorado Misfit Another great Dyson!
I had the Animal 59 cordless for about 4 years and decided to purchase the new V8 version. The carpet rotary brush stopped working intermittently after the 1st few uses. I called QVC and they shipped me another one. Unfortunately, I was gone on vacation for several weeks when it arrived and UPS left a notice. Before I could get back, UPS had already returned the V8 to QVC. Geez! Anyway, I'm reordering again today and can't wait to get it. These vacuums are super for quick clean ups. I have a dog, long-haired cat, and a bird who is always dropping bird seed. The vacuum picks up cat hair like crazy. You can tell how well it works by the amount of hair being picked up in the bin. I had no idea this thing had such great suction. I live in a small house, so this one is perfect for me. Love it! And, I agree with others, the price is worth it. I have purchased some other cheaper brands and they quit working or the suction is terrible. Wasted a lot of money trying other brands.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BJKling Worth every penny!
Here is my quick review.
3 months now and it beats every vacuum I have ever had. The price? Worth every penny. People pay $400-$700 for cell phones!?! It met all the claims on the program. Suction great, lower speed is good, battery life is better than advertised, great attachments. All items are easy to organize......
I have a Dyson upright clear canister vacuum. I never liked cleaning floors so my Husband vacuums most of the time.He saw the V8 on TV. It sounded good, seemed a little pricy but with easy pay we decided to give it a try.
It was worth EVERY penny! I got the box and had it put together and vacuuming within an hour. It was that easy.
To test the V8, I vacuumed high traffic areas with the upright then the same area with the V8. The V8 picked up a lot of powder dust and pet hair the large vacuum missed. I did the other half of the room with the V8 first. The upright had very little dirt in it. I always used clean empty canisters.
I usually don't write reviews, however I read them before I buy something. It has been 3 months and I love it so much that my husband brags he has not vacuumed once since we got it so I had to come back and write a review.
I also tested the high power mode and there wasn't enough difference to always use high power mode. It is good on fabric furniture.
I have found a use for all the attachments now and it is so easy to switch them out on the spot. I use plastic totes for my cleaning supplies. Since I always vacuum and dust at the same time I just put the dusting supplies and vacuum attachments in one tote. Works great as I travel from room to room. Couldn't be happier.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anitaki Love it
I love this vacuum. It's quite, and sucks up everything in my carpet. It's easy and clean to empty. I haven't tried all the attachments yet. I'm sure they will be an added bonus to my new work horse!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott73 It's awesome!
Simple, convenient, powerful, maneuverable, and very versatile. I keep a clean house. But after my first use, the V8 made me feel like I hadn't vacuumed in a year. Because I had to empty the bin 3 times. And with all the attachments that it comes with, it really cuts down the need for other cleaning utensils. With its simple design, the charge time (on regular suction) is sufficient for a modest size home. Because your not having to push around a big vacuum, or deal with a cord or move furniture. The V8 is well worth the cost.
