Firstly, this is great cordless vacuum — keyword, cordless. It can run for 40 minutes on a single charge. That goes down to 25 with the motorized tool, and down to 7 minutes on “max mode.” The canister can also hold a good amount of dirt, and has a new mechanism that scrapes the sides of the bin when being emptied. With a single charge, I can vacuum the hardwood floors in my one bedroom apartment in addition to my two 5x7 area rugs. I wish that the battery lasted longer, or even better, there was an option where the vacuum could be used while plugged in. If you live in a larger apartment or house, you’re probably better off with an upright vacuum.
The new soft roller cleaner head works well for hardwood floors, but on corners, I find myself having to go back with the crevice tool to finish the job. I use the direct drive cleaner head for low pile carpets, but the mini motorized tool works better for shag rugs (and car floor mats/upholstery). While I love all of the accessories, I hate that the provided mount only provides room to hang two of the attachments. I would prefer if an additional mount was available for purchase.
In comparing to my V6, when cleaning hardwood floors/tile, the difference between the V6 and V8 is negligible. The difference in cleaning is clear when cleaning carpet, especially thicker pile rugs. Aside from having the latest model, the V8 doesn't really warrant an upgrade from the V6.
How does Dyson expect to maintain their status as a premium brand when their product is so inferior? Had I completed this review the first month, I'd have given this unit 5 stars. Just over a year later, I'd like to throw it in the trash as this $600 vacuum has become useless in less than a year and a half.
I contacted Dyson support this morning and will update this review once I understand whether they're willing to stand behind this unit. Regardless, it's unacceptable to spend this much money on a vacuum that's unusable after 14 months. I'm trying to imagine the cost per vacuum (!!) ... it's probably like $10 for every time we vacuumed the house. Ridiculous, regardless of the warranty coverage.
I'm convinced all these 5 star reviews are from people providing their feedback after the first week. Give it a little time people :)
