    Being a very frugal person, I was hesitant to spend this much on a cordless vac, but read that the battery can be replaced, and it's the only cordless I read about that keeps allergens sealed within. A hepa filter means nothing without a tight seal and great suction. I also was concerned about it running out of charge quickly. That hasn't been a problem, because you can cover a lot of ground in a hurry, and it recharges quickly, so just take a short break. Also, using it is quick and almost fun, so every time I see a spider web , I grab it for a minute. I'm vacuuming more often ( I hate corded vacs.), so I seldom need to devote a lot of time at once. The power is as good as any corded vacs. I've used.. I empty the canister outdoors, due to allergies. My only complaint would be that dusting with the attachments added to the extension tube is awkward. I also was concerned about where I could hang this to charge without causing eyesore. The body is small, so instead of hanging , it can sit on the living room floor, camouflaged by furniture, with the tube disconnected and hidden behind a cabinet. It can go under a sofa or upholstered chair, etc. I have an Electrolux cordless, that I've enjoyed, but when it's battery started to go after 2 yrs, I noticed thick dust buildup on the exterior of an unremovable foam filter on top of the vac., indicating that I'm breathing dust coming out, and decided to upgrade to the best cordless I could find for allergy control. I'm glad I sprung for the best Dyson makes. I've only had it about 2 mo., but so far, I'm impressed.

    This is my second purchase of a Dyson cordless vacuum, and I would buy another one in a heartbeat (if I had to). My previous Dyson was the simplest handheld version without any special attachments; plus, after 5 years of use, the battery was not performing well anymore and the turbo mode "MAX" button somehow got stuck. Even though, I was mightily pleased with all the use I got out of it. Enter Dyson V6 Absolute: - Very easy to vacuum any type of floor due to its long tube - Highly maneuverable mechanized heads (one for carpet and one for hard floors) - Almost 20 minutes of continuous vacuuming - Lightweight - Powerful suction - Cordless design allows you to use it with a moment's notice anywhere in the apartment / house - Very good at picking up any sized dirt particles, pet hair from both carpet and hard floor - BEST OF ALL: You get to see how much dirt you are collecting in real time!!! (the dust collection compartment is transparent) You might be surprised how much dust is hiding in your carpet... The only downside I suspect is that the mechanized heads and the pivot could be damaged if you bump them too hard on an obstacle. It hasn't happened me, but they are plastic, so who knows... Also, the battery (like any battery) will eventually fail to hold a charge, but my previous Dyson's battery worked very well for 5 years, so I am hopeful about this one as well. Besides, a replacement battery is probably available directly from Dyson, so it may be a non-issue.

    We had tried our first robot vacuum but returned it as we were unhappy with the performance. This along with us having stairs in our house led me to looking at the Dyson V6. We have both carpeting and laminate flooring on our first floor. We use the Dyson V6 mainly for the laminate which covers the main traffic areas, kitchen and dining room. We also use it for the entry rugs. With 4 young kids this machine is perfect for performing a quick cleanup at the end of the day so you can start fresh. It does really well at picking up items against the wall, just by running the vacuum parallel against the wall. The Dyson is light weight and has a few attachments that are very easy to change between. The Dyson has a "Max" setting for maximum power. It produces an amazing amount of suction but will drain the battery rather quickly. For example, on the "Max" setting I was barely able to complete a flight of stairs. In contrast, on the normal setting I can easily clean over a 1200 square foot area without killing the battery. We always use it on the normal setting and have never had the battery die on us in this setting. We were able to mount the charging base in the front coat closet which has proved to be very convenient for the area we use it in the most. For someone with pets or kids I would highly recommend this as a means of easily maintaining a clean floor.

    best vacuum our family has owned

    Let me start off by saying this is our family's first Dyson vacuum. We have previously owned a Hoover or Shark. I wanted a cordless, and while it does have a hefty price tag, it is worth EVERY penny. It exceeds our expectations. We have a mixture of hardwoods and carpet in our home, and I bought the absolute because it came with all of the attachments. The first time I used it, I was amazed at how much dust, dirt, etc, came out of our carpet and rugs. The cordless feature is the main reason I bought this vacuum. It is so easy to grab off the wall mount and quickly vacuum high traffic areas daily (if you are a neat freak like me!). I also use this in place of my daily broom sweeping. While others may still prefer a broom and dustpan, I love that it sucks up all of the particles that I would normally "stir" and sweep up (making it better for my allergies). The battery does last about 20 minutes on normal power mode, and 7 minutes on max. I only use the max power to vacuum large and thick spills. The regular mode is long enough for me to vacuum 4 bedrooms and 4 area rugs, and still have power left. I think it is efficient and you can vacuum much quicker than hassling with a corded vac. All being said, invest in this vacuum!

    It changed my life.

    I never knew it was possible to wake up in the morning and look forward to vacuuming dirty floors. I would have laughed at anybody who told me that. Then I bought this Dyson. It was expensive, and I was convinced I would have buyers remorse. Then I got it home, assembled, and charged. To vacuum with this is to experience temporary bliss while enjoying it's ease of use, smoothly articulating cleaner head, and watching it drag dirt particles kicking and screaming into its dirt receptacle. The bare floor cleaner head traps dirt and larger objects instead of spitting them outside the side of the vacuum like my regular upright vacuum. The carpet cleaning head with it's carbon fiber bristles to agitate the carp fibers caused me to be embarrassed when I realized how disgusting my carpet was because the container filled with dirt and hair like no other vacuum I'd used. If you try this vacuum, you'll quickly realize how well made it is, how well it cleans, and how you can't go back to living without it.

    Great Product, Short Battery Life

    I LOVE this vacuum. I own a full size Dyson that will now be going up for sale. This compact vacuum, does the job, takes up zero floor space (with wall hanging system) and is so easy to maneuver in even the tightest spaces. I have 2 complaints that do not make me love this vacuum any less. First, why have a wall hanging unit that does not hold ALL of the attachments it comes with? This makes no sense to me. Second, the battery life is SUPER short (Dyson claims 6 minutes but I haven't timed it). If you are the person that vacuums your entire house in one session, this will definitely frustrate you. I normally clean one room at a time and the portability and easy of use outweighs the battery life dilemma for me. I would also say that if you own a full-size Dyson, you know the EXTREME suction of these things and this pint-sized one is just not as powerful. However, it still cleans great. You just cant suck up a bowling ball like you probably can on the full-size. =)

    I have two small dogs, three guineapigs and 2 roomates (one is my sister, the other her boyfriend). The dogs dont shed much, or so I thought. As soon as I turned on and vacuumed, I filled up the canister with all sorts of dust and dirt I didnt even know I had. I thought I was relatively clean but the Dyson opened my eyes. In reality I bought it because the little dogs like to rip pieces of paper and they are not the neatest kibble eaters, the fluffy tool in this vacuum is great. Every now and again the paper does stick to the brush head but its very easy to take apart and clean it. This is good practice even for maintenance purposes, my old shark would never have let me so easily remove the brush head and reattach. Charging it is a pain sometimes for longer jobs where I feel like cleaning everything, but the convenience and attachments make up for it. I get done faster because its wireless. Overall it deserves a solid A!

    "My" Review.

    Pros: -High quality made. -Light in weight then I previously expected. -It works the way it's described. Not a Con, but not a Pro: -Can confirm that the battery life is limited up to 12 to 15 minutes. Sometimes it will last for 10 minutes of use. -Suction may not be as strong as I originally expected, but it will get the job done after leaving it on for a while. -Container below the vortex funnels, the plastic container is somewhat difficult to reattach to the unit once it's been removed. -Unit is loud when the trigger-switch is engaged. Sounds like a wind blower meets a boeing 747 engine toned down, but there's a noticeable higher pitch whine. Con: -Price is debateable between a non-hepa filter versus a hepa-filter for a difference of a $100. It may not be necessary, imo. Other: -I gave this product 5/5 stars due to the fact that this product met my expectations, and the reviews from a majority of other members are confirmed. No additional, bad traits were found about the unit.

    Great cordless vacume

    What a big help! I have two Bengal cats and a dog. I needed something to use daily to vacuum my kitchen area. When you sweep, dust and pet hair get in the air and on your counter tops. With this cordless vacuum I can easily get it out and clean my floors without having to wipe all my counters down and breath in the dust and hair that gets stired up with sweeping. It's easy to assemble, change and empty! The only downside is when you use it at full power I have about 6 minutes to get the floor done. Sometimes I run out of time when I decide to go under and behind things and it takes a while to recharge. But with that much power and convenience I wouldn't expect it to last a very long time and be light enough to use easily. I really need to get the upright for my deeper cleanings. I'm saving for it now! Great product! Expensive but worth it to me. The cheaper ones don't do half the job and don't least very long.

    I have only had the Dyson Absolute for about 3 months, but this vacuum has made staying clean around my place very convenient! I live in a one bedroom apartment with my 4 month old lab puppy (whom sheds like crazy!) or at least I didn't notice how much she shed until I saw just how much hair my Dyson picked up every other day! Before the Dyson Absolute, I had a vacuum that was decent, but rather bulky and cumbersome. Not to mention, the whole reason I bought this new Dyson vacuum was because my puppy chewed through the cord of my old vacuum. The best part about this vacuum is the cordless feature which really offers you boundless cleaning range. Even though it is cordless, this thing still has incredible power that lasts all the way through the battery life. The only criticism I would bring up for this vacuum is that it only sustains power for a max of 20 mins of constant usage. Other than that, I have been so happy with this purchase. Worth spending the extra buck!

    This vacuum is awesome! We bought this when our five year old Dayton stick vac finally died. We used it almost every day to vacuum the tile and wood floors in our house. This vacuum makes that one look cheap. Not only does it run a little longer but it is way more powerful too. I've been using it to vacuum the rugs in our house and it is amazing the amount of dust that it is pulling up that out big vacuum has been leaving behind. My favorite thing is the new floor attachment. Our old stick vac only has one attachment with the rotating brush and it would sometimes have trouble picking up small things like a pebble on a hard surface and fling it around instead. The new attachment is more like a flat lint roller brush and does an incredible job. Nothing gets past it. The only con to this vacuum is the price. I found it on clearance for much cheaper though.

    First the directions are so simple to follow a 12 year old could do it (but probably not a 10 year old). I have used this Dyson stick 3 times in the last week and I can't believe how light and how handy it is to move from floor to floor and to just do touch up work. I have never been one for getting out the vacuum and cleaning up but I have a whole new attitude. I was concerned that I might have to install the wall mount in order to charge but this is not an issue at all. Simply remove the top component (of 3) and plug into wall just like you're charging your phone. The only negative is that I'm not sure when to use which attachment so I'm keeping the box it came in handy until I've got it. Still not sure when to use the mini-motorized tool unless it's just for small spaces.

    I love my new dyson! I live in a 1300 sq ft townhouse with a very heavy shedding dog, and this vacuum is prefect for my home. I have enough time with the battery, although now I do find myself vacuuming a little very day because of the convenience. Therefore, I use the vacuum more as spot cleaning, than doing a weekly full house vacuum. I love how I can use the fluffy head on my hard wood floor and the regular head on my carpet. The vacuum is very light weight, easy to maneuver, no cords to worry about, easy to clean out and the suction is great. Some things I don't love about the vacuum is fluffy head. I feel it does not have a great a suction as the regular head and the swivel is so flexible that sometimes the vacuum veers of course unless you utilize more strength.

    Outstanding Portable Vacuum

    This vacuum performs exactly as every review presents it... Great suction, portability, and cleaning ability. Battery life isn't awesome, but we've been getting a little better run time than expected. The high suction setting really brings usage time down, but in normal mode, we can get two to three big rooms done at a time. Dust bin fills up really fast, but I suppose that means it's working well... Haven't had anything break on it, so good durability. The filter does seem to collect a lot of dust and hair and it is pretty tough to clean it as other reviewers have stated, but it's not hard to stick something in there to pull the coated dust off... All in all, I feel it's worth the high price...

    I am a Disabled Vet in a wheelchair, I have several Vacuums from IRobot's to a Red Devil. but this has all I am looking for in a vacuum, light weight and small enough to carry around to get where the problem is without frightening the lil dogs and cat. The tools give the power to take on big jobs when I need too!! So far it has been a privilege to limber it up and get the work done (and to think, "No chords to be confined too!!" The best money I have spent, thank-you BestBuy for being there for what I needed!

    At first, i was hesitant to spend so much money on a device that lasted only 20 mins on a single charge (seriously?), but after trying it out for a couple weeks, i can honestly say this is probably my favorite purchase of the year. The battery was a big turn-off, but you don't even notice it. If you vacuum strategically, the battery is a non-issue. It's lightweight, fun to use, and has completely replaced our broom and duster. It's versatile enough to use in home or in the car. If you're on the fence, but can find at a sale price, I'd highly recommend. As someone that has never vacuumed our home in 3 years (i love my wife), I've used this more than she has, and she loves it for that reason alone, lol.

    The perfect cordless handheld

    I read all the reviews before purchasing this handheld and while I was concerned about the power issue, I was desperate to replace my older Shark cordless. I am in love with this sweeper. With the two different brush heads, I can choose the right one for my hardwood or my carpet. It isn't a wet vac or a shop vac, so I don't pick up absurd items with it, so emptying the canister is never a problem. And I don't even use the more powerful setting. I just run it standard and have vacuumed for almost 30 minutes nonstop without any issues. It actually has never stopped working due to lack of power. I have a cat and litter is an issue. Not anymore! I never get that sinking feeling that I have to sweep/vacuum anymore. I love this vacuum.

    This is an excellent product. But like all products, you need the right tool for the job at hand. In our case, arthritis makes heavy objects with hoses or even upright vacuums too difficult to work with for light duty cleaning. This particular model is cordless, light weight, and easy to change attachments, and works in all kinds of nooks and crannies. This battery powered unit is not some power monster, but what it does do, it does very well. Battery lasts about 20 minutes, only about 6 minutes on Turbo mode (super suction!). So this is not a whole house vacuum, This is more of a quick clean up, get to hard to reach places or do a couple rooms before company arrives.

    This is by far the best birthday present I've ever purchased myself. I must admit at first I had a little buyer's remorse due to the price, but I can proudly state that my initial doubt is now gone. The reason why this is, would be due to the outstanding product Dyson has created with two highly noted benefits being that the vacuum is cordless and bagless. It's like a dream come true to anyone who has used a vacuumed, as I for one was fed up with cord length cutting out my productivity. Overall it's an excellent product that truly speaks for itself with time, which is why I full heartedly recommend this product not only to friends, but to anyone who's looking a more effieicent way to vacuum.

    I bought this vacuum as a gift for my wife. I know, not a very "cool" gift... But, I did my homework on it and it came in highly rated. The downsides didn't deter me, but all the reviewers were pretty accurate. Limited run time and the dust bin is a little difficult to empty when dust sticks to one of the media filters. Battery lasts plenty to vacuum a room or two at a time, definitely not appropriate to use to vacuum your whole house in one shot if you live in 1500 square feet or more... Powerful suction, surprising powerful actually. Out sucks our plug in vacuum, and it's been a good addition to our Roomba...
