Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Dyson V8 is one pricey cordless. It’s also extremely lightweight and pretty powerful for a cordless.
Dyson V8 battery will now last up to 40 minutes, a significant improvement on the V6's 20 minutes.
As exhaust air on the V8 is now directed in two jets out to the left and right of the cleaner,the high-efficiency filtration means it is only air, though, as particles down to as small as 0.3 microns are captured by the filters.
Offers a long 40-minute battery life and it's perfect for spot cleaning.
The Dyson V8 Absolute is the best cordless vacuum overall. It’s essentially the same vacuum as the V7, with a little more suction.
The V8 almost overwhelms with the number of attachments: powered brush head that's designed for hardwood floors, a motorized upholstery brush, a soft brush for hardwood, a combination upholstery/bare floor tool, a crevice tool, and a soft dusting brush.
