Xiaomi Dreame V8 cordless vacuum £118.15 @ Hurray Store / Ali Express

Posted 22nd FebShipping from Spain

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is the older model of the Dreame, the V8.

The price is getting very close to the sub £100 mark now, which is fantastic for a cordless Vacuum that is pretty much identical to a Dyson V8 in every technical department.

Here is how they stack up in terms of performance....

Dyson V7
Suction - 100 AW
Battery - 30 mins
Weight - 2.4kg
Best price - £149.99 (Ebay refurb)

Dyson V8
Suction – 115 AW
Battery – 40 mins
Weight – 2.6kg
Dust container size – 540ml
Best price - £299

Xiaomi Dreame V8
Suction - 115 AW
Battery - 40 mins
Weight - 2.6kg
Dust container -540ml
Best price - £118.15

Xiaomi Dreame V9
Suction – 120 AW
Battery – 60 mins
Weight – 1.5kg
Dust container – 500ml
Best price - £143.15

Dyson V10
Suction – 140 AW
Battery – 60 mins
Weight – 2.68kg
Dust container – 770ml
Best price - £299 (Expired QVC special offer)

The Dyson V11 obviously beats them all with a ridiculous 185 AW, but you’d expect it to be impressive for £499!

So going back to the dream V8.....
To put it another way, if you already own a Dyson V8 and are happy with its performance, you will be equally happy with the Dreame V8, and can save around £30 on the slightly improved Dreame V9 if you have a small flat and you don’t really need 60 minutes run-time on your battery.

Ships from Spain, so no import duties to pay.

Basically it’s good for the vast majority of working people, but not for the multi-billionaire James Dyson. I think I’ll be ok sleeping tonight with that on my conscience

Personally I agree with you, I’d spend the extra money on the Dreame V9, but for those that really want to keep spending down, this is a good alternative

Yes, please supply link to V9 at £143.15 I'd like that one. Thanks
Great write up
The new Vax onepwr looks promising. Some bold claims.
The price on the V9 seems to fluctuate on a daily basis, most likely due to fluctuations in currency exchange rates.

Cheapest I can see at the moment with free shipping to UK from Spain is from seller “Chinese Superlife” for £144.93 - they have 11 in stock

£144.93 36% Off

If you’re a first time buyer from AliExpress there are plenty of promo codes you can find with google to get a few extra quid off.

Code “OBING” might still work for an extra $4 off at checkout

Dreame V9P is the international version with english manual and EU-Adapter. The pro version also has a docking station with charger. As the non-pro version you have to plug the charger separate.

I have the V9 (not the V9P) and it came with an English manual, an EU plug, and the docking station is separate to the plug, as in I can plug the adaptor into the docking station so it can charge the base, or I can plug the adaptor straight into the back of the vacuum base itself if I don’t want to use the dock.

From what I can tell the V9 and V9P are identical other than the top where the HEPA filter slots in

Yeah - there’s no need to be concerned about the 5000+ Brits employed by Dyson so long as you get a cheap knock-off Xaomi that matches the headline numbers but not the real-world performance.

Dyson has been taking the *p* for years now. The original prices of bagless vacuums were arguably justified 10-15 years ago, when the technology was genuinely innovative and Dyson had to recoup all the R&D and innovation.... but nowadays the vacuums being released are just incremental improvements over the previous models, and other manufacturers have caught up. How can they charge £500 for a vacuum with a straight face?

The truth is I will always try to buy “British” if the product is decent and the price is fair.... but in the case of Dyson, the price is not reasonable at all..... if it was, people wouldn’t be looking at alternatives.

If Xiaomi can sell a vacuum for under £150 that’s as good as a V10, then I think a reasonable price point for a Dyson V10 would be around £200. If the V10 was £200 then I would’ve bought it myself..... but £299 “on special offer”?

Dyson is having a giraffe!!

The comments for the video point out an obvious error in the testing methodology - the Dyson has a notch for the attachments and this is not covered and so loses suction through the notch.

They can charge that money as they spend millions a year in R&D, employ thousands and as importantly support their products for two full years, employ staff to answer the phones, answer the emails, engineers to repair their products if needed and keep in stock millions of parts for many years to support their products.

Their older models reduce in price as more flagship models come out. You want the best, you pay the most, simple economics.

Whereas buy this from a company that has cloned the tech, get zero support if it goes wrong, or if you break an item, you can't replace. They knock it out cheap as they have zero R&D costs, zero product support costs, zero ethicality in ripping off designs.
They do exactly what Amazon do with their “Amazon Basics” line. They identify popular products, determine what the costs would be to produce their own version, and if the numbers make sense, they launch their own line at a cheaper price-point than their competitors.

It’s laughable that you are attempting to take the moral high ground, defending the man who has been manufacturing vacuums in Malaysia since 2003 to keep costs down to maximise profits (could’ve opened up a big factory in the UK and made them here, employing hundreds, if not thousands more UK staff) and who is now planning to shift his UK headquarters to Singapore, once again to maximise profits and avoid UK tax.

The man is not some messiah, and neither are his products, of which 52% of all Dyson’s fail within 5 years.... well at least the reported ones.... plenty more just go to land-fill that never got recorded.

Do some googling, and for every “delighted” customer, you’ll also find an utterly disappointed one who’ll vow never to touch another Dyson product as long as they live.

People want good value products, so stop preaching and take a nap as nobody cares what you think

Amazon do not ignore patent law when it comes to launching its basics products

Companies patent inventions to protect their time and money investment in the invention.

Neither do Xiaomi? Just because something is similar (and let’s be honest, you would have to be blind not to recognise the similarities) doesn’t necessarily mean that Xiaomi have infringed any patents or copyright? Or are you just making assumptions because the company is Asian that they would naturally just do this type of thing?

According to Wikipedia.....

“According to the patent landscape report[98] published in December 2016 by a patent research and analytics firm GreyB Services,[99] Xiaomi owns 6989 patents with more than 90% of patents filed/acquired after 2012. The surge in number of patents was due to aggressive patent acquisition/licensing deals with many companies including Broadcom, Intel, and Microsoft. The patent acquisition was a strategic move by Xiaomi to strengthen its weak patent portfolio aligned with its global expansion plan to create a defence against patent lawsuits.”

Also, it’s worth noting that Xiaomi is currently valued at $46 Billion, ranked as the worlds 4th most valuable technology startup. This is compared to Dyson, where the company is currently valued at $5.2 Billion. The point being that Xiaomi is not some dodgy little back-alleyway setup.... They now have global presence, and make countless products. If they were doing anything wrong, Dyson’s legal teams would be doing everything in their power to crucify them. There will always be the “ethical” argument..... but pretty much every product in your home has been copied, tweaked, optimised over the years by different manufacturers. It’s always been like this and it always will be. It’s just the way of the world and helps drive innovation and product improvement.

At the end of the day, we have freedom of choice. If you want to buy Dyson out of blind loyalty or your moral compass simply won’t allow you to buy any other form of bagless, cyclonic vacuum cleaner, because James Dyson came up with it, then that’s fair enough. Go and enjoy it.

But we live in a democracy and are free to chose how we want to spend our heard earned money, so quit preaching and climb off that high-horse

Ps.... James Dyson didn’t invent the vacuum cleaner, the fan, the hand dryer, the hair dryer, the washing machine, the air purifier or the hair straightener.... He just takes other people’s inventions and tweaks them

Whilst I was replying to someone who didn’t acknowledge the value or existence of patents, I agree with you that my post did not cover the points you raise, so let me try to address them for you - I’ll try to do it in order to help try to get my message to you in the intended way.

The Xiaomi brand is known to be used against products that are not produced or marketed by the company.

It’s true that I’m speculating that they might have infringed patents because licenses cost and add to the cost of production and the price is too cheap to retain the license and quality - it looks like a quality product so yes, I’m assuming they are not licensed. In this case, it has little to do with the company being Asian.

The patents that Xiaomi own relate to electronics, such as computer parts, tablets and mobile phones. I have never said that Xiaomi are a small company or that they do not own patents but the patents related to cyclonic action within a vacuum cleaner are owned by Dyson.

As for Dyson tweaking existing inventions - this is correct and it’s part of their marketing in some instances. It is my understanding that the patents related to these inventions have expired.
