All time favourite: Dyson V8 Absolute review:

Mum's partner to a cleaner home

Dyson v8 hero image gold

Having little kids around the house can be exhausting - mainly because of all the mess they leave behind as they play around the house like little tornadoes. This is why it's important for parents to invest on items that can help them clean up so they can have fun with the kids without worrying about the mess too much!

Cord-free, hassle-free, and a powerful suction. Homeowners in Australia are raving about Dyson's V8 Absolute because of its powerful suction (it has 150% more brush power, folks!) and its whole machine filtration, which captures allergens and expels cleaner air. We tried it out and here's what we think:

UNBOXING: First Look

The Dyson V8 Absolute packs power and versatility in an easy to assemble vacuum cleaner. You don't have to worry about putting it together because there are not a lot of parts and the different parts easily snap together.


In The Box:

  1. Dyson V8 Absolute
  2. Soft Roller Cleaner Head
  3. Direct Drive Cleaner Head
  4. Mini Motorized Tool
  5. Combination Tool
  6. Crevice Tool
  7. Soft Dusting Brush

A couple of things we noticed:

1. The Max power mode switch has been moved from previous models. It is easier to toggle with single hand operation.

2. Re-designed catch and spring for quicker swapping of motorheads/tools

3. Easy bin emptying including the space around cyclone assembly.

4. Longer and heavier than earlier model DC45


Does your toddler enjoy throwing oat corn on the floor? The Dyson V8 Absolute can pick those up quickly with one swoosh over your carpet!

Crafting is fun...until it's clean up time. The Dyson V8 Absolute can help you pick up those pieces of craft paper with no problems.

Cleaning up wool yarn from the floor is also no biggie with the V8 as it can easily pick those up too.

One down side about the Dyson V8 Absolute is that shredded paper and wool yarn are likely to get trapped due to the position of the air flow opening. However, it is not a major issue as the items could be easily removed without any tool as compared to the earlier model, DC45.


A huge improvement from the previous model, V6, the Dyson V8 Absolute is more powerful, versatile, and with better battery life. Clearly, Dyson has been listening to its users!

The Dyson V8 Absolute is a good option especially if you're thinking about upgrading from the DC45 or other older models. If you're a first time buyer, this is HIGHLY recommended. We listed down some pros and cons for you:


  • Improved performance on hardfloor vacuum
  • Better battery life 
  • Significant reduction in hair entanglements
  • Easy bin emptying including the space around cyclone assembly
  • Re-designed catch and spring for quicker swapping of motorheads/tools


  • Heavier and bulkier than DC45
  • Price (with good quality!)

Despite the two cons we listed, we still give the V8 Absolute 5 out of 5 stars!
