Perfect

published

I use this on a tiled floor and also carpet and I have found the Dyson v7 excellent to use. It is so handy and I don’t have to bother about Cords being purged in or extension cords. Overall it performs well.

Purchased in July 2018.

V7 Animal performs poorly for an expensive product

published

I purchased the Dyson V7 Animal in December 2018 when it was on special offer at $499. In the intervening year, I must say that the performance of this cordless vacuum has been poor. It is used in a routine domestic environment only on hard and carpeted flooring.. It often blocks, has poor suction on the standard setting and very short runtime on the higher setting. If the option was available to return the product and receive a refund, I would take it. We have found this product to be generally ineffective in our setting.

Purchased in December 2018 at David Jones Retail Stores for $499.00.

Great vaccum

published

Love this new stick vacuum. Don't know how I cleaned without it. Great suction and love the motor head. Having two dogs they leave a lot of hair around. This vaccum picks it up really well and is great to use on stairs.

Purchased in November 2020 at Harvey Norman for $450.00.

Decent

published

The suction isn't enough for general usage unless turbo is on. I still like using it when I need to vacuum a mess quickly but this does the job and I have no regrets purchasing it.

I won't recommend purchasing this full price as I don't thin it's worth the price.

Good for the initial few months only

published

When we bought this dyson we were really pleased with it. It obviously does not have the suction on a corded big dyson, but it serves well for the quick clean-up.
HOWEVER, it is now a few months into our life with this dyson and the motor has completely gone bust. After 2 mins of vacumming it starts switching on and off like a spluttering engine. We're so disappointed as it wasn't a cheap buy - $500!

Overpriced and Underperforms

published

We purchased the V7 animal just 6 months ago.
The battery lasts about 5 mins on high power setting and 20 mins on low power after a full charge....only problem is it doesnt pick up much on the low power setting so pretty much limited to doing one room at time.
Intermittently the unit will not switch between low power or high power and stays stuck on low.
It will also then swap between levels going high/low rapidly even on a full charge with an empty canister

Purchased in April 2020.

Excellent cleaner

published

Vacuumed with my old Electrolux, which I thought was great.
Vacuumed again with the V7, and it picked up a whole container full of extra dust.
Easy to use, very strong suction.

Excellent electric broomstick for light cleaning, tidying out car, pet fur attachment terrific! Not enough suction for thorough house clean, but extremely convenient and easy to use for quick tidy. Great on furniture. Would not live without one now!

Great quality, quick recharge, versatile

Love Dyson stick vacuums. This is my second- the previous one lasted 5 years. Quick recharge, picks up everything. Also love the car kit that means my car stays spotless. Bigger bin on this model is great, along with variety of attachments.

Easy to use but doesn’t clean well

published

I really like the idea of these vacuums however it only lasted 1 year before breaking completely and it never picked up dirt very well. At the end, the part that spins, you are forever pulling it apart and cutting hair that’s twisted in it because it stops it from spinning and therefore picking up even less dirt. I won’t be purchasing one of these again.

DYSON V 7 Animal

published

Works well on hard floors, to get deep down dirt in the carpet you would need to use max power which has a very short run time of 10 min max. I would recommend if you have a plush or twist type carpet to get a stronger machine like the V10 or V11 as this machine just won't cut it. Is only good for quick surface cleanups in between regular vacuuming.

Don't waste your hard earned money

Don't waste your hard earned money - poor suction -Blows exhaust into your face - goes flat very quickly and can not change battery - it has taken 7 versions to get this far no wonder Dyson has come up with more - never buy a Dyson- it is only for the rich who never use it anyway - Ian ---- yes a Man that knows atmospheric pressure is what actually pushes the dust up the dys and that the only thing that really sucks is the Dyson itself

My wife loves it!

published

We use this hand held vacuum every day. It picks up our cat hair without a problem. Even though we do not normally use it on the boost setting we found when we did the rechargeable battery only lasted about 8 minutes. Normal power lasts approximately 20 minutes and is enough for us vacuum all the carpets in our dwelling. This vacuum lives up to its advertising.

Purchased in February 2020 for $440.00.

Disappointing

published

At first we were pleased with the Dyson V7 as we have a dog that sheds a lot of hair. However we found that if the button was on 'MAX', the battery was charged for no more that 12 to 15 minutes, necessitating a lengthy period of no vacuuming while the battery was recharged.

Amazing product. Better suction than most barrels, except Dyson of course!

published

I purchased this product on special after my old handstick from another brand died. This handstick is light, glides nicely in both hard and carpet floors and with the mini motor head attachment, makes cleaning car/lounge chairs a breeze and picks up dog hair wonderfully. The suction is perfect and battery life is sufficient, however on Max suction the battery is consumed rather fast. Would be nice to see an improvement on this in new models. Overall a fantastic product that offers a good experience, which you would expect given Dyson are on the higher end of the price range.

Poor performance

published

Hardwood floors & Carpet. Vacuum was perfect for approximately 4 weeks, after that it became a nightmare. It keep stopping and after looking online for help I was talked through how to clean it, unfortunately this happened regularly but the vacuum wasn't really blocked. I took it back to Argos and they replaced it. The new one was fine for a while, then it just kept stopping, after contacting Dyson they said it needed a new battery but was just out of warranty so it would be £65, too expensive, so got one from eBay for £16. Only use it now to hoover the car, this product is not value for money, I will never buy another Dyson.

Not a good dyson

published

I love Dyson but not the V7, it is not as good as my V6 and really regret upgrading. Do yourself a favour and get a V8 or a V11. I have to use it on Turbo for it to be strong enough and then only get 8mins run time

Perfectly Powerful & Easy To Use

published

This vacuum is perfect for us. It’s powerful & has the option for added power with a max button, multi heads make it great for cleaning out draws & hard to reach corners & the long stick makes it easy & quick to use around the house. Barrel holds a surprisingly large amount meaning we don’t need to empty it every use. We use this on tiles, carpet & floorboards.
It sucks from the carpet well and glides over floorboards without scratching. Great on the bathroom tiles as well & can be used easily under beds. Would definitely buy another one! The only thing I’m not a fan of is the charging dock needs to be mounted to the wall for ease of connection/disconnection and in a rental this is avoided.

Some sites say the V7 animal has a hepa filter, and here you are saying it doesn't. Confused?? I would like the hepa filter, can you please advise which model I need. And I have 2 dogs.

Hi Jan my review was for the Dyson V7 Motorhead. The animal is a different model I believe, my son has the animal and yes he said it does have a HEPA filter

Dyson
Dyson Team ..Dyson

Apologies for any confusion Jan. While we don't use HEPA filters in our cord-free machines, all Dyson Cord-free machines use our patented cyclone technology to spin debris (including pet dander, dust, dirt and particles as small as cigarette smoke) out of the air.

While our machines do have filters as a precaution, our machines rely on our patented cyclone technology to provide the high level of filtration.

We hope this helps, however if we can assist with any further queries, our Dyson Experts are available via [email protected] and happy to help.

My Dyson shows its fully charged. When I go to use it, it pulsates off and on. Whats going on with it? Only 2 months old

If your machine is making a surging or pulsing sound this sound indicates a restriction in airflow through the machine. We would encourage checking the machine's airways as shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpxRl17N03E

If you continue to experience difficulties, please email [email protected] with your details and our Dyson Experts will be happy to help.
