    Dyson v11 absolute amazing product

    Dyson v11 absolute amazing product 27th Dec 19 at 11:38 AM
    Dyson v11 absolute is an amazing product. Yes it costs a lot of money. I paid 499.00 (discounted black Friday) just before Christmas so we could give whole house a good clean. We usually wash what carpets we have with vax washer.


    I cant believe how much dirt this picks up even when we have had two Dysons in house one of which we now given away.


    On the Torque Drive Motorhead if you close the two slots at front it literately sucks carpet up and remove ground in dirt my two dysons missed. We tried this on full power but even on eco and auto modes they still suck up dirt you cant see with naked eye.


    The only carpets we have is stairs/landing and one bedroom (3 bed house) it was also good as removing ground in dirt on a large rug we vaccumed with other Dyson and have washed before with the vax.


    Before we got the V11 we did buy a 32v Vax blade around 160 at the time, absolute terrible machine in every way, bin very small pain in backside to clean filters, a real pain. Doesnt pick up much stuff at all.



    Moral in this story is you get what you pay for. Yes Dysons are expensive, very expensive but a lot of that has come in a brilliant product in every way and research.


    Oh and I dont get paid for this one bit no connection with Dyson

    Also to Rolling moon. Op is long time poster with over 3000 posts.

    You have 37, to infer OP is James Dyson is ridiculous and your post is childish.

    Glad to hear Dyson are still making some good machines. The hand held we bought is only really good for picking up cob webs, and I had read that they were only making battery operated models now. Shan't discount them completely when my current plug in Dyson eventually dies.

    Thanks OP for this useful post.

    Thats was almost funny. Dont give up your day job though to become a comedian.

    oh and I see you real reason you wanted to have a dig was your bad experience in the product and decided to vent it on me yawn.


    Oh here is my receipt from Argos via online 450 with staff discount (wife, Mrs Dyson) and black Friday Although of course I had to disguise myself as someone else don't want to be seen as James

    I only posted this because I am giving a truthful account of the product, yes its very expensive vacuum cleaner but if you cared to see online reviews unbiased ones that take a in-depth analyses it comes out usually on top even after 9 months of usage

    Yes thats right all the research is going into battery operated and have invested large sums of money into battery research too

    They will be back at school soon. To be honest I dont post much now because of trolls like them and ungrateful people who cant be @rsed to thank you when you try to help them. I usually dont want to waste my time with them anymore.

    Me too I am amazed how much ingrain dirt it lifted, My large rug just keeps giving dirt all time even though I washed it. Because you can alter the suction via the gates on the brush, when the gates are down I can suck carpet up never had this before with any vacuum cleaner including Dysons corded


    I bought some zorb cleaner when it comes to clean a few bits of dirt that wont go

    Useful review, thanks for posting it.

    Personally I don't get the popularity of, or emphasis by Dyson on, cordless, though. Is it really such a problem to plug a vacuum cleaner into those conveniently located power sockets?

    I suspect it's a ploy by Dyson to make people see it as The Way Forward because they are ahead with the motor and electronics technology to run it.

    I was sceptical whether cordless would be better as I had my fingers burnt with a vax blade 32v I just thought wow the price at the time for a v8 I think was silly like it is even more for the v11

    But how wrong I was its far better than corded Dysons and I have had about 3 over the years and still have one now for car.

    I couldn't believe how good it was sucking up dirt ingrained in my rug even corded Dysons couldn't shift it. The cord is a issue as you always stuck to how long it is and sometime it gets in way like the stairs. I didn't realise just how much is its a issue until I got this, I thought that too like you are.

    You do pay for the technology but from what I seen no other manufacturer comes close in terms of suction and the battery life is good. I clean house in a totally different way and its no longer a chore as its so easy to pick up from the charger whip round a few rooms (plenty of charge left) and back on charger

    Another vote for the V11 here, it's brilliant!
    I had a Dyson ball previously which was great too but I wanted cordless for ease of use up and down stairs. I honestly feel this thing would suck up the dog given half the chance, it's so powerful!
    It really makes it so much easier and quicker to clean when you don't have to faff with the cord. It's even restored the pile on my living room carpet which is 50+ years old and the last remaining relic in my house left over from my Grandma.

    I'm sure it is a good machine, for that price it needs to be!
    I wonder when they are going to produce a cordless vacuum with a removeable battery though?

    What an appalling price for a vacuum that probably costs 50 to make in Malaysia.

    A Vax cordless is quite sufficient in my small fully carpeted home though at a third of the Dyson.

    Supply and demand. Its not just the cost to make but also the R&D. They make some of the best cleaners for the price. You find premium vacuum cleaners arent cheap


    You can buy cheaper ones that do a decent enough job, the Dyson has some advanced features many others dont have like better filtration, smart brush that various speed depending on floor type


    You can of course say this about any product pay top price you get advanced cutting edge features, pay lower price get job done just not as good.



    This cleaner actually picks up ground in dirt my 3 years old rug looks like new even old corded Dyson couldn't do that

    I had the vax blade 32v worse cleaner I have ever had, often pick up dirt when motor is off it would fall back down the suction just barely kept it in the vacuum pole, also a real ball ache to clean and minute bin. Maybe blade 2 is better but blade 1 I cant even call it a cleaner it was that bad.
