A great machine with all the accessories you need for vacuuming different floors. Also allergy-friendly!


The Dyson Dyson -V8 Absolute is packed in a simple but functionally illustrated package and is ready for use as soon as it is removed from the box. The operating instructions describe in 18 different languages how to handle the device.


The device is grey and red on the main device, and also the feet have these colours. The suction arm is coloured in bright orange and the brushes are red and purple.


The vacuum cleaner is easy to assemble and easy to plug into each other. The furniture nozzle is combined with a corner attachment and can be attached both directly to the appliance and to the rod. In addition, a longer corner extension is included, which is very practical for more remote areas.

The dirt container can be removed as a whole, or a flap can be opened and the dirt falls out directly. The container is easy to clean by hand and the filter can be replaced easily. The brushes on the vacuum cleaner feet can also be removed, but you will need a screwdriver.

To empty the dirt container you can remove the container completely or open the bottom and the dirt falls out

With 2.5 kilograms, the device is handy and very easy to lift. The castors under the foot make it easy to use.

The noise level is very low and corresponds approximately to a normal conversation volume.

With the wall mount, the vacuum cleaner has a fixed place and can charge there at the same time. This means that the vacuum cleaner is immediately ready for use when you want to use it. At the mount, attachments can also be hung.

Cleaning result

The cleaning result is good and the vacuum cleaner cleans smooth floors in no time. On carpets, if there is a lot of dirt, you will need to go over the same spot a few more times, but the result is very satisfactory. Only on very narrow edges does the vacuum cleaner have slight problems getting rid of all the particles.

In comparison, you can see that the vacuum cleaner leaves some particles on the edges, but the surfaces are very well cleaned

The different feet help to equip the vacuum cleaner for all surfaces. The parquet attachment should be particularly gentle on easily scratchable floors.

In normal mode, the battery lasts about 40 minutes, which is sufficient for normal use in several rooms. The charging time is approximately 5 hours.

We have evaluated approx. 600 customer reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 80 percent of the buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars).
