    a great vaccuum but does not do all jobs well

    Posted
    Randy

    First the biggest pros.... I can not stress how awesome this has worked on my couch. I am able to suck up dog hair with little to no effort while creating patterns like you would with mowing your yard. It makes a difference. 10/10 Couch Cleaning Barefloors I give it a 9/10. There really has not been an issue at all cleaning anything that comes my way that wont suck up. It has moves like jagger. This thing can get in between kitchen tables and weave in and out of tight spots. I am very satisfied with mobility 8/10 Some cons.... I thought this would be great to pick up the hair/doghair that was embedded in my carpet in my car. I was way off....It did not work at all with any of the attachments. A 30 dollar shop vac is far superior when cleaning a car. 1/10 (It is awful) When cleaning the floors the attachment easily getting hairs caught up on the outside of the vaccuum which is really annoying to pick off. The worst part is the trash cannister, I have medium size hands and this thing is dreadful to scoop out the hair, you can not just flip it upside down and shake it out. Hygenic 6/10 Static Electricity. Please handle the vaccuum with a dryer sheet to combat static electricity. I get shocked all the time without it. I called Dyson to complain thinking I have a faulty vaccuum but this is very common and said use a dryer sheet. It does work but come on now! Safety ?/10 I was lucky to get this on sale. I am happy i purchased this product but at the same time I think it's worth maybe 100 dollars for the 20 minute charge you get and the versatility of the cleaner. I would reccommend if you have the money; otherwise wait it out for a much cheaper model.

      Hi Randy, this is Krystal with Dyson. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the Dyson V6. I am pleased to hear you are satisfied overall with how well it maneuvers and cleans your couch.

      The canister does have a max indicator line. It is recommended to empty the bin before the debris goes over this line. This is to help prevent a build-up at the top of the canister/cyclone area. In the event that it does go over, the bin can be easily detached for easier cleaning.

      As for the suction, we do recommend switching to MAX mode for those tougher jobs.

      We would value the opportunity to address any additional questions or concerns you may have. Feel free to contact us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and we will be happy to help.

      Best Wishes,

    Battery issues common

    Posted
    Frank

    Great in many ways, light, cleans well, easy storage if you mount it on the wall in a closet BUT they have battery problems. I bought mine less than a year ago. Seriously use it once a week for the 6 minutes it lasts on a single charge. So that means it's been charged 50 to 60 times. I guessing but accurate. Now the battery has burnt out. Dyson is sending a new battery for free but what's going to happen in mother year? This is a great but EXPENSIVE vacuum. But it doesn't last long enough on a charge and the battery is a problem. I'd rather have one that can run on battery AND plug in when needed. I'm considering a shark that will plug in for power. This vacuum is just about there, but needs some upgrading on power options. I'd recommend but explain these issues.

      Hi Frank, this is Aimee with Dyson. I am happy to hear that you find the V6 Absolute to be lightweight, effective, and easy to store. The V6 Absolute will have a battery run time of 17-20 minutes on standard power, and 6-7 minutes on Max power. To check if the machine is on Max power, you would want to power the machine on and check the Max button to see if the blue LED light is on. If so, simply keep the power trigger pulled, and press and hold the Max button at the same time. You will hear a pause the power, and it will restart in standard power. With standard power, you should find a much longer run time. If this doesn't seem to resolve the issue, please reach out to us at AskDysonUS@Dyson.com, and we will be more than happy to assist. Best Wishes, Aimee Dyson-EN_US

    Well it's true the battery life on turbo is quite short actually the battery life is not good at all in either normal or turbo. I have a small house with mostly hard floors and it takes more than one charge to do a quick clean up. For the price i would think long and hard before getting this unit. The vacuum is a good performer it picks up dirt. The hard floor attachment works quite well this is the main reason for my purchase my only negatives i can see so far are the battery life you have to undo two screws to remove so it's not practical to change for normal use and the seals on the top of the dust container look like they may leak a little. Dyson why can't you make a 5000mah battery option for this unit it would be much appreciated and i'm sure i'm not the only person that is looking for longer run times.

      Hi Miek. Its Tameka with Dyson. I am sorry to hear that you are not satisfied with the run time of your V6 Absolute. Our cordless models are designed for quick pick ups around the home and in between cleanings. When in normal mode, you should get a run time of about 20 minutes. The V6 Absolute also has an 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. Our technology has advanced tremendously since the first Dyson which held an overall run time of only 6 minutes. We are always looking for new ways to improve existing technologies. If you are not achieving a run time of 17-20 minutes we would love to help. Please email us for support at askdysonUS@dyson.com.

      Best wishes,

      Tameka

    I LOVE this vacuum. It is fantastic for small spaces. I got this particular one because I have all wood floors. I was skeptical that dog hair (two dogs who shed a sweater a day) would get all over the velvety attachment. That does not happen so I was thrilled. The only problem is that it doesn't last long enough to vacuum the house unless you do it in short bursts. I have ~2500 sq ft almost completely wood and I really need at least two of these to be able to clean up in one fell swoop. At $500 a piece that's a bit steep. Still would recommend but not for a large space.

      Hello there,

      Thank you for your review. We’re happy to hear your experience with the V6 Absolute has been positive overall.

      You are right to note that the Dyson V6 Absolute is best for quick pickups. In developing V6, Dyson engineers researched how long people like to clean, and found that the vast majority of people clean for less than 25 minutes in one session. Many people, for example those living in apartments in metropolitan areas, find 26 minutes proves to be long enough. If you live in a much bigger home, we would recommend that V6 be used for in-between cleans, rather than deep whole home cleans. A Dyson upright or canister would be more suitable for the whole home cleans.

      We’d always like to hear more about your experience. Feel free to e-mail your contact information to AskDysonUS@Dyson.com and we’d be happy to discuss further.

      Best wishes

    A great cordless vacuum, an okay household vacuum

    It's expensive, but intended to replace your hardwood/barefloors cleaners, your normal-carpet vacuum, and your handheld cordless vacuum. The result is impressive, but it's not the end all of vacuum cleaners. Works well with limited area to clean, even if you have animals. It is great that it is cordless and the unit weighs little and is well balanced. The lack of a trigger lock is annoying. The more powerful turbo mode depletes the battery but works much better. Overall, it works, but there are days I wished I had stayed with my previous Dyson corded model.

      Hello Fred,

      Thank you for providing this review. We are thrilled to hear the machine has been satisfactory for you and we value your support of Dyson products.

      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. This allows the machine to be optimal for quick in-between cleans, rather than deep whole home cleans.

      In the majority of household cleaning scenarios, the standard mode is more than sufficient and will allow the machine to maintain a run-time of 17-20 minutes. However, it is nice to know that the more powerful max mode is available to tackle those heavy duty pickups around the house.

      Please feel free to contact us directly at askdysonus@dyson.com for any questions or assistance you may have regarding your machine and we're always keen to assist.

    This was a great vacuum when we first got it but then seen that it had some issues. Don’t get me wrong it’s still very nice but the Dyson V8 took care of almost all the issues with better performance. Now with the V10 I don’t see why anyone would go for this model unless it’s super cheap. It will get what needs to get done clean just don’t look over the fence because the grass is definitely greener with the two newer versions.

    Adequate for Hardwood floors

    I only need a hardwood floor vac and didn't want to lug that big hose around so I went with Dyson cordless. Power is good when you use Max setting but battery will drain much faster this way. Wish they had a hard floor attactment without a beater bar, it would be much better and faster to clean the whole house. I don't know how it performs on rugs. It is convenient without cords or hoses.

    The vacuum has great suction when the Turbo Charge button is enabled. When it isn't enabled, suction is okay. Don't like how short of the battery life the vacuum has, the time limits are noted inside the box on the manual. It should be displayed on the outside to notify customers. The vacuum only last 5 mins when the Turbo Charge button is on, was not impressed.

      Hi there, this is Krystal with Dyson. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry to hear you are less than satisfied with the battery life. The Dyson V6 should provide enough suction while in standard mode for basic level cleaning. MAX mode is designed for heavier debris.

      The Dyson V6 is also advertised to operate for 20 minutes in standard mode and 6 in MAX.

    We have a love/hate relationship with the vacuum cleaner. We love that you can go pick up small messes quickly and easily. The bad part is the battery life is really bad. Even fully charged, I didn't even get done with the stairs before it died. It also doesn't pick up items I would expect it to. Just fine crumbs mainly. Worth $400? Probably not. But it is ultra convenient.

    Like it very much light weight makes it quick and easy to use, But the Big Down Fall of the Stick is the battery which is not removable and does not last very long before it needs to be charged should have a removable and should come with 2 battery's.

      The Dyson range of cordless have a removable battery. The Dyson V6 is no different. The battery is held in place by a set of screws. It does take 3.5 hours for a full charge. Once fully charged it will get 20 minutes of run time in standard mode and 6 minutes in MAX as advertised.

    I love my Dyson vacuum, that is why I was set on paying the extra money to get the Dyson cordless vac. I have used other cordless vacs before and really see no difference from the Dyson cordless vac. The charge lasts about 15 minutes and when it's done, it's done. It just stops. It does have a lot of cool attachments that come with it though.

    Powerful vac - needs cord option

    I think Dyson is almost ready for cordless vacuums. This model is powerful enough to care for any job but it only had about 5 minutes of battery life on max speed. You cannot operate it when plugged in. So it is great for small jobs, but you cannot toss your corded vacuum just yet... If we can stretch it to 20 or so I will never use a corded one again.

    With a battery life of less that 15 minutes, this machine will not replace your vacuum cleaner. It is great for stairs, screens, blinds, furniture and anyplace it is difficult to get your full size vacuum. As someone who suffers from allergies, it is difficult for me to use due to the fact that the exhaust is right near my face.

    I like the lightness and ease of using it for small jobs. I can vacuum 32 stairs and then it quits. You can only use the vacuum 15-20 minutes on high before you have to stop and re-charge it for awhile. I don't feel it does very well on the regular setting. It interrupts cleaning time by waiting on a very high priced vacuum.

    This is a nice spot-duty handheld vacuum that'll pick up most messes. However, in spite of all the add-ons, it is not for lengthy cleaning or as a "regular" vacuum. The battery dies pretty quickly (<30 mins) and even faster when you use one of the powered attachments.

      Hi, this is Aimee with Dyson. I am happy to hear you purchased the V6 Absolute. The docking station is able to hold a couple of the attachments that come with the unit. With the V6 Absolute including multiple tools, plus an additional cleanerhead, to attach each to the docking station would mean the docking station would be bulky and add more weight. We do have a Dyson Tool Bag which works great for storing tools. Please click on the Live Chat button on our website, to inquire about this accessory.
