Also, from research, the only difference between the purple and silver V6 and the maroon V6 Absolutes (which are £80-100 more) is the Absolute comes with more accessories for different floor types and it has a HEPA filter for allergy sufferers. A filter that traps pollen or other allergens which the standard V6 does not.

IMO the premium is not worth it even though I have a mild dust-mite allergy myself.

we have the v6 normal, its great.
Only thing I'd say is its not that easy to clean

Good to hear. Eagerly waiting for mine to arrive. Me and my partner both hate vacuuming with the hot, noisey, heavy and tangly vacuums we've had over the years. This will be a revolution for us.

​I'm sure some users on here said the v6 battery life isn't great compared to the absolute. although I'm not 100% sure as I own neither.

It does make vaccuming addictive, amazing how much comes up considering we vacuum once a day.

Not true. They have the same battery and 'Up to 20 minutes of powerful fade-free suction'. Bloody confusing though why they have so many models.

Whoa I feel like a slob now, once a day?! Guess that's why we need one of these to encourage vacuuming regularly. We vacuum barely once.....a month now as the vacuum we have is so noisey, hot and blows out more dust than it seems to suck up after I used it to pick up loads of filler dust from sanding.

How long do these take to charge?

I think about 90mins or so.
They last for 20mins.
But I've managed to hoover our house 21/2 times over on one charge.
Obviously it does depend on the size of the house.

Yeah, we do have a puppy but still after 1 day you fill half of the container.

That's not too bad then, thanks

The biggest differences between standard and absolute are power rating when you use attachments (aside from the hepa filter) the absolute is meant to have more power than the animal which in turn has more power than the normal v6. I'm not entirely sure they have the same battery but I know certain attachments don't work with certain models. This is a good deal for the standard vacuum though if you aren't worried by the powered attachments. The normal ones all work fine and the same between them all apparently. I have a dc58 (now rebranded v6) at work and a v6 absolute at home and all the toolkits work on both :-)

This is a fantastic price for one of these. Almost got to 1000 heat recently from Tesco (was gutted when i missed out).

Just got my order in now

Thanks. Was after this at circa this price. I have already had a trial in the past so had to clear cookies (or another browser) to try again!

Thanks for the info. You got a link or source to those claims - I couldn't find any info that says the Absolute has more power when using attachments? I mean how would this work when they all have the same motor and battery?

Mine arrived earlier today. Ordered 3 days ago. Build quality is top notch, packaging is great. After trying the V6 on our carpet, the performance seems exceptional. A large amount of dust and debris was left in the bin compartment after literally 10-15 seconds of vacuuming over the carpet - I was blown away. We know the carpets here needed vacuuming but still, I couldn't believe how much it picked up in such a short amount of time. I think what leads to this performance isn't just the suction but the motor in the suction head that powers the bristles that dig and lift up the dust from the surface.

Can update on performance after I've used it more but bloody hell, this looks like a revolution for us.

If you look at the product pages on their website it states that the dyson v6 absolute produces 150% more brushbar power than the v6 animal.

Either way you have got a good cleaner. The v6 is generally all you need. I looked at the v8 and the price difference wasnt worth it at all.

Good spot. I read that as meaning the brush head (which has its own motor and spins) has more power but the suction power is the same.

Yeah I briefly contemplated whether it was worth paying the huge premium for the V8 but as that is so new, you would have to pay close to the MRRP and over double what you're paying with this deal for incremental performance increases.

ordered .3week shipping estimate.good find.

is this good for wooden floors as well as carpets?

I found the same with our animal version. We spoke to a dyson demo woman last weekend just by chance and she told us how to clean it. Hold the battery with two hands so your thumbs rest on the opening lever, then the gunk drops out. Press again to get the dust bowl off, then brush around the metal filter. This is the bit i didn't know - you have to bash the exposed open plastic tube thing on some softish surface, - we've just done that, and lots of crusted up dust was dislodged from high up. I'm sure this would have caused a problem with clogging sooner or later. You have to also clean the small filter - did that today too, and with a bit of rinsing, then tapping/banging, quite a bit more crud (i.e. compressed fine dust) dropped out of that. The problem is the crud can't be seen until it's dislodged - i though mine was really clean until today.

how are these on long piled rugs? with my old upright Dyson the spin part of the head can be turned off so it doesnt tangle. Do these tangle? does the spin turn off leaving just the suction?

Yep that's correct.
