    Not so Absolute

    Is the stick worthy of the cost...NO. It performs like you would expect from a dyson. I find the attachment for steps is the best I've used. But in saying that the other major flaws make the a go back to the drawing board tool. First and foremost is the requirement to hold the power button for the duration of the use. Who made this blunder? To really get the Dyson benefit you need the max power, which gives you 6 minutes to do your jobs quickly. Battery life is a big draw back. If your doing light pickup on hardwood you may be ok, if your finger doesn't tire out. Hold onto to your money for a better version from Dyson.

      Hi this is Jay with Dyson.

      V6 Absolute has a run-time enhancing trigger. Trigger grip releases instantly, meaning battery power is only used for vacuuming. Push button to select power. Provides 6 minutes of higher suction for more difficult tasks.

      Best wishes,

      Jay

    great vacuum charge doesn't last long

    I was super excited to get this vacuum but once I had it it wasn't all it's talked up to be. It takes about 2 to 3 hours to charge and then you only get maybe 15 mins of vacuum time before you have to put it back on the charger! I love the cordless and light weight for my kids but for the price NOT worth it!!!

      Hello there,

      Thanks for providing this review. Sorry to hear the V6 Absolute has not met your expectations. You are right to note that Dyson states up to a 20 minute run time on standard mode with a 3.5 hour charge time. The V6 has a run time enhancing trigger – meaning that you are only using energy when you really want to be cleaning, rather than leaving it running when you’re moving furniture or moving from one room to the next. In developing the V6, Dyson engineers researched how long people like to clean, and found that the vast majority of people clean for less than 20 minutes in one session. Many people, for example those living in apartments in metropolitan areas, find 20 minutes proves to be long enough. Although if you live in a much bigger home, we would recommend that the V6 be used for in-between cleans, rather than deep whole home cleans.

      Further, using a lithium ion battery pack, the V6 releases its charge evenly so there is no drop in performance. Other cordless machines may claim longer run times, but thanks to fading batteries, clogging bags and filters, they can quickly lose up to half their suction power in use.

      We're interested to hear more about your experience. Feel free to send your contact information to AskDysonUS@Dyson.com and we will be in touch.

      Best wishes,
      Dan Dyson-EN_US

    Short run time

    We expected to be able to use this for at least 15 minutes without a recharge but found it lasted last than 10 minutes. Not much value for a vacuum that costs as much as this but lasts such a short time without recharging. Returned the item to the store and are looking for something else.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for taking the time to provide this review. Sorry to hear the battery life of the V6 Absolute was unsatisfactory and it may have been returned. In regards to the machine lasting less than 10 minutes, this is likely due to the machine being on MAX power mode. V6 cordless models feature a standard power mode and a MAX power mode. Standard mode offers 15-20 minutes of cleaning time whereas MAX mode offers 6 minutes of cleaning time. This can be engaged and disengaged by pressing the MAX button on the back of the machine while it is running.

      We're always happy to hear more about your experience and ensure you are getting the right machine for your home. Please feel free to e-mail your contact information to AskDysonUS@Dyson.com and we may discuss further.

      Best wishes,
      Dan

    Absolutely love all of our Dyson products cleaning ability, this one is no different. The battery life is very poor. We can typically do one room well before it shuts down and needs to be recharged. Will probably try the Shark next time.

    Great concept, doesn't quite deliver

    The dyson cordless vacuum is great in concept, but doesn't quite deliver in performance. You have to always keep it charged. Then when you use it, the power only last 10 - 15 minutes max! When it works, it works extremely well. Like the lightweight feature.

      Hi, this is Aimee with Dyson. I am happy to hear that you are pleased with the cleaning results of your V6 Absolute. Our V6 cordless vacuums are designed to be left on the charger, when not in use, to ensure it is always charged when you need it. Or you can choose to charge it for 3.5 hours, should the machine need a full charge, and remove it from the charger. The battery run time for this machine is 6-7 minutes on Max power, and 17-20 minutes on standard power. We would like to know more of your experience, and make sure it is operating as intended. Please email us at AskDysonUS@Dyson.com, and include your contact details. We look forward to hearing from you. Best Wishes, Aimee Dyson-EN_US

    Unit overheats too easily. Hard to hold the on when running. I found I needed to change from right to left hand often. Easy to empty and you don't need a bag is the plus. Decent suction but not in corners with the smaller attachments. Expensive for the quality.

    I returned this product and asked my children to buy me the next step up for Christmas. It will be interesting to see if the v8 by Dyson holds a charge for 40 min.

      Hello there,

      Thanks for reviewing your Dyson V6 Absolute. We're sorry to hear the product has been returned as a result of the run time. However, we're happy to hear you have used this as an opportunity to pursue some of our newer technology.

      It is important to note that the machine features 2 modes, standard mode and max power mode. The machine defaults out of the box to max mode which allows up to 6 minutes of use with about double the suction power. On standard mode, the machine will run for 16-20 minutes and offer the full run time. In contrast, the V8 Absolute offers 7 minutes of continuous use on max mode and 25-40 minutes on the standard power mode.

      We'd always like to hear more about your experience and ensure your machines are performing as they should. Please feel free to email AskDysonUS@Dyson.com and we're keen to help.

      Best wishes,

    Maybe we got a bad one but battery life was very short. We upgraded to the new v8 one.

      Hello there,

      Thank you for providing this review of your V6 Absolute. We're sorry to hear there may have been an issue with the battery life on your initial purchase but it is excellent to hear you took the opportunity to upgrade to some new Dyson technology.

      It is important to note that our cordless machines have 2 different settings: Regular mode that will give the vacuum 16-20 minutes of run time and MAX mode that will double suction power, but reduce run time to about 6 minutes. All cordless machines are set to MAX mode right out of the box.

      To engage/disengage MAX mode on the V6 you may push the gray max button on the very back of the vacuum while the trigger is pressed. You will notice a change in sound and the quieter setting is regular mode and will give you the vacuum's full run time.

      We're always keen to ensure your machine is performing as it should. Please don't hesitate to email your contact information to AskDysonUS@Dyson.com and we will be in touch to help out.

      Best wishes,
      Dan Dyson-EN_US
