    How is this useful?


    I was really excited to purchase this product. I have been a Dyson owner for several years and I LOVE MY FULL SIZE DYSON!!! Recently, I was diagnosed with a disease that makes my everyday activities very painful so having something lightweight that could do the job was important to me. My stairs haven't been vacuumed in months. As soon as the battery was fully charged, I put my new baby together and went to work on my stairs. I was thrilled at how much funk this machine was removing. The funk-receptacle is small so I had to empty it often, but that really doesn't bother me. What makes this product one star is the fact that I paid 300$ for a battery that lasts less than 10 minutes. That's right! I was only able to vacuum 7 stairs before my Dyson was dead as a doornail. I immediately called Dyson customer service to see if this was normal and not defective . . . guess what . . . it is totally normal! Now, I am going to have to wait 3.5 hours for the battery to recharge so I can squeeze another 10 minutes out. Since I have a large stair case, of 24 steps, it is going to take me 30 minutes of vacuum time and 11 HOURS of charge time to get my stairs clean. WTF?! Not worth it. I am returning this product until Dyson can either produce a battery that can last a reasonable amount of time, or provide multiple batteries for this vacuum that costs 300$ + tax.

      Hi Tankgirl, this is Joe with Dyson. Thank you for your continued support. I am sorry to hear that you are not enjoying the cordless as much as your full size. The V6 will provide 17 minutes of constant suction with the floor tool on normal power. It sounds like you may be using the machine on max power. The machine will also only remain in use while you are holding down the power button. This helps to prolong the life of the machine.

      Other cordless vacuums may claim longer run times, but begin losing suction from the moment cleaning starts. Our fade-free battery ensures 100% suction power from start to finish.

      Please send us an email with your contact information to askdysonUS@dyson.com and we will be in touch with assistance.

      Best wishes,

      Joe Dyson-EN_US

    My boyfriend and I have been searching for a vacuum ever since we moved in together; it's been a long ordeal. We started off with a shark but the combo of having a cord and being top heavy was not to our satisfaction and it was returned. I saw that this went on sale for ~$200. I was a little nervous about getting it since the top complaint has been about how long the vacuum lasts, but i decided to take a chance since it was a great price and dyson is a very good brand. 1) Yes, it will last only 5 minutes if it is on MAX power- but you don't really need to be using max power the whole time you are vacuuming - or at least for me 2) we have wood floors and use it to pick up specks of dirt, dust and my shedding hair and it works great for that. the 20 minute charge allows me to vacuum our whole apartment (~1200 sq ft) as long as its not on max power. 3) LOVE how light and maneuverable it is 4) i like how i can make it handheld or use it as a stick vacuum. I'm pretty satisfied with this purchase. I think the only thing i have to complain about it is the stick is made out of some matte finish so it leaves marks if it rubs against something... and yes if you are paying full price for this vacuum i'd be a little upset if using the max power only lasted for 5 minutes.. but i didnt pay full price and dont need to use that button...it just really depends on what your needs are for this vacuum. so for me, it's is pretty good.

    I love this little vacuum.

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I've had my eye on this little vacuum for about a year now. I really wanted a cordless vacuum. Actually, I want everything including all my power tools cordless now these days as well. On that note, I must say that I love the design of the wall mount with the charging cable that fits right in every time you mount it back up. Since this Dyson vacuum is the only contender on the market, the only comparisons I had to make was between the least and most expensive one. I realized that each model of these Dyson vacuums are all the same. They are the same in power and same in size. The only differences are that they come with extra attachment options and they come in different colors. Well, as for me I'm most definitely not getting the pink or purple ones (maybe Dyson should rethink their color scheme since this product also appeals to men). So my choice was between the white one (cheapest) and the red one (most expensive). As I said, the only difference is the attachment handles, so I went with the white one. I don't really need all those extra attachment handles. And if I did want to buy them separately, I'd still be saving money because they're cheaper to buy separately than in the bundle all together with the red (more expensive one). I thought this would be a good point to make for any consumer to read before buying the most expensive one. Most expensive is not always the best. They all work the same. The only thing I wish this product had was a longer lasting battery. Longer battery life with the new Lithium-Ion battery technology they have these days is very important.

    Excellent vacuum with many attachments

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Dyson makes the best vacuums, everyone knows that and that's why people pay the premium price. I actually got this as a Best Buy Deal of the Day for $200 a couple weeks ago, which when I saw this deal I bought immediately because I thought it was a mistake. This is an excellent product that is very lightweight, portable, cordless, maneuverable, easy to use, and still one of the most powerful out there. I use it on my hardwood floors and it works great and doesn't damage them. There's also 2 separate motor heads with one specifically for delicate floors, but I haven't even used that one yet. It also comes with many various attachments (more than a normal vacuum) that allow to clean things up high, like ceiling fans or drapes, and hard to reach areas in both your house or car. Overall, if you do the research you'll learn that people who spend the money on a Dyson usually never regret it and often don't ever buy a different brand of vacuum going forward. I highly recommend this model, but they do offer multiple variations that each cater to a slightly different niche so figure out which one would be the most useful for your needs.

    Wish I'd bought one sooner

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I bought this recently on a Best Buy sale. I've been thinking about what I could buy to conveniently deal with our dog and her constantly shedding fur. I think this handy vacuum has solved our problem. We mounted it quite easily on the laundry room wall and can now just pull it off the charging bracket and zip around the house picking up fur balls. I was a little concerned about the charging time of this model compared to a longer charge on the newer models, but have had no issues getting done what I need to do and it has never died on me. Between the attachments this comes with and others I have from my corded Dyson vacuum I am set. We have quite a bit of ceramic tile and this does the trick for a quick clean up. I would not recommend this model for any extensive cleaning of carpet; I just think one needs a corded vac to do the best job with deep carpet. This Dyson vacuum will work great though for cleaning the carpet in our automobiles. Only real negatives I have come across so far would be the regular price of this item (need to buy on sale), and the dirt sometimes must be pulled out of the top of the canister when the fur and dirt gets stuck against the side and top. Thus far we are happy customers and hopefully will find this to be a durable, long lasting stick vac.

    Worked once, now doesn't, terrible

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    Bought this for smaller jobs. Have two other corded Dyson s plus my son has one of these. I received it, plugged it in and gave it a full charge. Used it once for a few minutes til it went dead. Plugged it in again to charge for about 4 hours. Now all I get is is turns on for 1 second then back off for two seconds then back on for a second and off and on and off, all while keeping the trigger held on. I would say this sucks but it doesn't even do that. I tried charging again for 24 hours and that doesn't even work. Unless the charger is bad. I expect more from Dyson. I have bought 7 Dyson corded vacs (4 as gifts and 3 for ourselves) and two cordless (one for gift and one for ourselves) and this is the first one with issues in past 13 years. I would love to recommend this as I have the others but this is terrible. Not sure if this is bad luck or what. Best Buy won't respond for help and I have not heard back from Dyson either.DO NOT BUY is my recommendation at this point. I will update this if I get this satisfactorily alleviated, but only if very soon.

    Great product for efficient and powerful handheld

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    Lets face it, no one likes or enjoys vacuuming, so I personally was looking for something that would be lightweight, efficient, that would get the job done quickly and in the first pass. I am a big fan and user of dysons. I have the larger HEPA traditional stand-up vacuum that I use and leave upstairs for carpet and use the handheld Dyson V6 for down stairs wood floors and rug area. It works great and picks up with lots of suction force so I dont have to do several passes. My only item that would have liked to see improve is the battery life, as I normally vacuum using the 2x strength setting, I really have to run quickly to get everything on the first pass. If not I have to wait -1-2 hours for the recharge. Overall - strongly recommend. Pros: very effective, strong suction, great size for use, storing on wall is great Con: Cost is higher, short battery life (~20 mins) FYI - not associated with any brands or group. Just like clean :-) Hope this help.

    So I needed a new, light weight vacuum because we moved into a town home with stairs. I started my research and these dysons kept popping up to be the best. I wasn't crazy about spending $600 on the newest version, so I decided to take a chance and try the V6 model. I didn't get the "animal" model but I do have one very long haired cat. The difference is that the V6 animal comes with more attachments. The vacuum is AWESOME. The other reviews are true, this model is really only good if you are the type that vacuums every other day or so. The battery lasts ~20-25 min, it seems like a short amount of time but I've actually been able to vacuum our townhome very thoroughly twice over. I've already recommended this to all of my friends and would buy this again in a heart beat.
