Perfect

published

I use it for areas my Miele upright cannot go, great suction and the perfect vacuum for under furniture, beds etc. would highly recommend as the second household vacuum for awkward places.

Vacuum doesn't last more than 6 months

published

Lasted 6 months before the head stopped working, called Dyson for trouble shooting and a replacement head was sent, tried the replacement and it's still not working, waiting for a replacement body now. No option to take it anywhere convenient to be looked at and no option for express post/courier, so will be left with no vacuum over Xmas/new year. Poor service and poor product that it doesn't last more than 6 months. First and last Dyson!

Purchased in May 2020 for $350.00.

Best Vacuum Ever!!

published

I use this vacuum for myself and in my housekeeping job. Used on all floor surfaces. Better than a cord pull along vacuum easy to charge and easy to use. The suction is amazing. I love it so much that i have recommended it to several people who all went out and bought one and they love it to. I didn't buy the V8 Dyson the vacuum heads are different and swivel around to much.
But the V7 is perfect Thank you Dyson!!

Purchased in October 2020 at Big W Online Store for $399.00.

Handheld is so good

published

Highly recommend this handheld vacuum cleaner that can also be transformed into a normal one. Vacuum cleaners should be cordless like this one because of the ease of use and not have to find a power outlet. I mainly use the handheld way which is very useful and powerful especially for hard to reach spots that a regular vacuum would have trouble with. Would easily buy this product again.

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.

Very good

published

This is the best vacuum I have ever had. We got it before we got our puppy so we didn't get that one for the animal fur but it still works great. It's amazing to see how much dust and hair gets collected only after couple minutes of vacuuming. Battery doesn't last for too long. We have 1 BR apartment and the battery is just enough for vacuuming out whole place (half of our place/tiles on low and half of it on max/carpet) but if you have more than 1BR you might need to recharge more often which can be annoying.

Compact, convenient and lightweight

published

Im using it for about a month now. I am very satisfied with this vacuum cleaner. It's compact, lightweight and does a good job for our carpet. I also use it for vinyl and so far i got no issues with it. The battery life is quite enough for 3 carpeted rooms. Its convenient for me too since having 2 babies in the house, its difficult to move around using a big vacuum.

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.

Portable, Compact and Useful, Although Poor Battery

published

Mainly use this vacuum on ceramic flooring and carpet, which it does to great effect. Portable and compact so easy to use and store. Although battery life is frankly quite poor, maybe get around 15 minutes of use before having to charge.

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!

9 minute battery life

published

I use it on hard floors n tiles and carpet, it works well.
Unfortunately the battery lasts only 9 minutes and the unit can get heavy in your hand.
Personally, I dont think its worth the money, if it lasted longer than 9 minutes, then it would be ok.

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

Excellent cleaner

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.

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.
