Firstly, this is great cordless vacuum â 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 âmax mode.â 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 5×7 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, youâre 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.

One year later? It runs for 48 seconds after being fully charged overnight.
I contacted Dyson about how to get a new battery and did not receive a reply.

I purchased a V8 Absolute vacuum in late September from Amazon.com and was fairly pleased with its operation until very soon the hard floor cleaner attachment stopped working properly. It was clogging frequently and easily and after inspection it became clear that the flexible purple hose that routes dust into the vacuum was crimped during the manufacturing process. This crimp was causing dust to snag and was severe enough that reseating the hose was not possible.
In November I began the process of trying to replace the part thinking a simple call would take care of things, but was stymied on a few occasions by hold times above 30 minutes, and it wasnât until December 17 when I finally had the time to ‘wait it out’ and speak to a representative. After he apparently pulled a demo unit out to see what I was talking about (I offered to email photos) and tried to convince me that the crimp obstructing nearly 50% of the hose diameter was part of the design, he created an order for a part and informed me that in 5-8 business days my problem would be solved. Great!
So I waited and waited and decided to call today (Jan 3) to check the status of the order. After more than 50 minutes, I reached a representative who then had to place me on a further hold to tell me that parts were not available for the vacuum since it was so new, and that in order to replace the part, I would have to replace the entire vacuum. The call lasted an hour and seven minutes.
I was told without any humor that replacing the part cannot be completed without my FIRST going to a UPS store with the vacuum and its attachments, receiving a tracking number, and then CALLING customer service back. CALLING! After protesting, the representative gave me her personal company email and said I could email the tracking information when I had it (the only bright point of this ordeal) and that it would take a further 7-10 business days to receive a replacement.
1. Why if no parts were available was I forced to jump through hoops a second time, and why do I have to send the entire unit back? If all of the relevant parts are already boxed up with vacuums why canât Dyson send ME everything so Iâm not without service for weeks? At a minimum why canât Dyson send me a label and schedule a pickup so I donât have to haul everything to a UPS store?
2. Why canât they get a call back system for the phone service? Even glacially slow-to-adopt USPS allows callers to opt out of physical hold times and receive a phone call back in the order they were received. Even an estimate of wait time would be something. I have now spent about two hours holding with Dyson.
I have to say that I am stubbornly seeing this through because I am pleased with the vacuum itself, but I will NEVER pay a premium for another Dyson product when the service stops when the transaction clears. It has been made very evident to me that the problem is on me to solve, when Dyson is supposed to be the company that solves problems.
Will update if I ever get a part.
UPS Store had no record of reference number. Had to call Dyson again. Only 34 minutes this time. Told me I went to “wrong” UPS store. Wasn’t told which UPS store in a nationally-linked chain would have reference number.
