Dyson V6 worth it?

21
Posted 4th Jan
The refurbished V6 has been on sale for £129 for a while now but in 2020 is this a good deal for this model? I need a new cordless vacuum and my budget would be up to £150 so does this represent the best value within this budget or is there a better option?

Could you provide more detail on why you think this?

Owned one for 3 years. Battery life is atrocious and the suction power is pathetic. Just replaced it with a corded shark vacuum and it's miles better. Put it this way our Dyson used to pass over specs of dust and rubbish and it didn't pick them up. Plus when it gets clogged up (which it will do after 5 mins), you have to take the whole thing apart and clean it out. Plus when the reservoir is full you have to get a screwdriver and physically pull out bits of dust and hair to empty it.

It's easily the worst vacuum I've had.
As above shark is the way to go..
I’ve seen so many Dysons dumped by bins or in skips, no idea why they’re so popular. Total garbage.

Do you use a cordless shark?



shark corded are decent for their price, just don’t buy a shark cordless they are terrible and have a battery life measured in seconds, the dog picks up more bloody crumbs.
V6 is rubbish, we ended up buying an upright Dyson alongside and use the V6 just to pick up crumbs and shite like that.

Due to circumstances a corded is not really an option. Looking for the best cordless sub £150, if possible
I've been using a £129 refurb V6 for two years to clean a 4-bed house, quite happy with it. Haven't needed to use a corded vacuum since. YMMV.

Thanks for the suggestion. That’s currently more than a V7 or a Shark IF130UKTH so how does it compare?

The wife is an area cleaning supervisor, and they had dysons and tried other makes, eventually they tried shark and went with them ended up ordering 36 for all the floors on different sites. She recommends all the time..
I’m a dyson van got a big corded animal over 9 years old going strong and the cordless v7 and it’s n absolute dream. No issues, good suction (we have animals and children) battery going well. Think it 2 years now and wouldn’t part with it
