All, we had a previous post here about a V8 Animal on Argos. That got expired, but I just chat with Dyson on the chat and they covered the price. So I just bought a V8 Animal with them for 199
I ordered and selected today - they sent it yesterday! Luckily I intercepted before, and changed. Just be aware - they’re sending out VERY quick, sometimes a day before you even selected.
Just ordered it now, free delivery and good choice of delivery slots direct from Dyson. Also Quidco. The wife couldn't wait till Friday! (nerd)
Yes, the second battery was sent FOC too, 1.5 years after the warranty had expired. They did give me guidance though around batteries as per my comment above and said that they would not be replacing it FOC again hence why I sold it and got a V11.
ok I did some research and the difference are mainly accessories: Pro: Come with Quick-release extension hose and Quick release wide nozzle, and a black colour Extra: Doesn’t have above but come with a stubborn dirt brush So Dyson advisor was wrong, Pro comes with more accessories
Some information for those looking to buy a V10 would be the following, based on my experience: Check out how highly rated they are on the 'Vacuum Wars' channel on YT, but also be aware of the following: - generally speaking they don't feel particularly sturdy, so if you have a busy, young-family household and you need something that will take some abuse for a few years, I'm not sure how well a V10 would hold up. I tend to look after things and we have no kids so I expect a decent lifespan from ours - let the battery pack to cool down for 15 minutes after using it on full power for more than a couple of minutes, or after long usage where the battery has been completely drained before putting it back on charge. You will lengthen the life of the battery pack significantly - familiarise yourself with the trigger replacement/fix video on YouTube just in case - familiarise yourself with the bin release mechanism fail video on YouTube just in case Overall they are fantastic things in our experience, our carpets have been brought back to life.
The only difference is the pro comes with 3 extra tools - mattress tool, up-top adaptor and extension hose
What’s the difference between absolute and absolute pro
Wait till you find out that all the big electronic brands follow the same practices
Get what you pay for! This is decent deal if you've seen the price as before. Still going hold out for (hopefully) a black Friday deal. Even tho I know last year wasn't none !
I'd spend all day clicking cold on this if I could, one vote isn't enough. Dyson are just about the biggest rip-off known to man, I don't know how they get away with it. £35 of materials selling for £500... No wonder Mr Dyson didn't want to start paying the tax man...
Is that a good thing I guess you will empty less often
This is a great deal, you are getting the absolute outsize for £100 less than the normal size.
Is this a good deal? Or should I wait for black friday
Most rave about shark till things start going wrong. I have 2 uprights and 1 cordless model from them and will never buy another product from them again after being stung by their useless 5 year warranty and fobbed off with their favourite excuse of this part is wear and tear we won't replace it under warranty but give us £69.99 and we will happily send the part out. I've gone back to Dyson with a V11 Outsize & V15 Detect.
Thanks OP, I just ordered one for my wife, there a 30 day returns policy if it isn't wat she hopes for
@gerrard30 im not sure if they have the same motor but either way i went from v10 to v11 and theres quite a difference in max suction but to be honest you'll never use the max on v11 its too powerful and v10 is plenty, i used it as my main hoover for 2 years before i donated it to my mom. Leave it on medium and you'll get 20 mins of decent suction, enough to wizz round the whole house
Thats why it says up to, dont know when you would ever use this on max power for 7 minutes, ive had mine about 6 months now and never use max, its too powerful sticks to my floor, medium is similar suction to other brands max power and lasts half an hour

She a keeper My wife didn't think twice about spending £650 on a vacuum...
I think that is the major problem. Battery driven things, like some tools and vacuum cleaners, become useless very quickly as the battery technology is still very poor and it costs a lot of money to replace them after just a few years. So a perfectly good power drill, for example, will end up in landfill far quicker than a corded one. I have gone back to buying corded power tools now, which I expect will last way beyond any current battery driven version. Waiting for the day battery technology improves to the point where they last as long as the device itself.
I have a v8 which I hate. So expensive (you could have bought three Henry's for the same price)! And the battery died in two years. They charge 65 quid for a new one!!! Luckily it was one week before the warranty expired so they sent a new one. Never again. Luckily I kept my ancient Henry.
Cheaper to employ someone local with a dustpan and brush. We have a country to rebuild. Make sure that the money stays local. I'm sure that an economist will tell me otherwise and advise me to listen to patriots who scarper when they see a better opportunity.
? The world must seem so confusing to you. They're happy with their purchase. I don't know why this thought makes you so uncomfortable...

Back in 1978, James Dyson became frustrated with a vacuum cleaner that wouldn't work properly. He took it to pieces to find out why and the Dyson story began. He discovered that the vacuum's bag was clogged up with dust, reducing the machine's suction power. At his factory, Dyson had recently built an industrial cyclone tower to separate paint particles from the air using centrifugal force. He decided to see if the same technology could be applied to the simple home hoover. It took him five years and over 5,000 prototypes but he succeeded. He had created the world's first bagless vacuum cleaner. The invention of further appliances such as bladeless fans, air purifiers, heaters and light followed and in 1991, Dyson Limited was founded. Today, the company is a respected and recognised name with over 12,000 employees around the globe.
The Dyson Product Range
Dyson doesn't have a huge product range but believes in doing what it does very well. Its main product lines fall into six main categories:
Whichever kind of Vacuum Cleaner you choose, you can be sure it has been engineered by Dyson to deep clean your home. Choose from cordless stick vacuum cleaners like the V11, which you just grab and go, more conventional upright vacuums, compact cylinder vacuums and lightweight handheld cleaners. Or, if you hate to hoover, there are even powerful robot vacuums. Let them do the hard work while you're out enjoying yourself.
If you're worried about the effect heat from conventional hairdryers is having on your hair then look at the Dyson range of Hair Care. Enjoy superfast drying with the Dyson Supersonic dryer; curl, wave and smooth with the Dyson Airwrap or straighten your hair without heat damage using the Dyson Corrale Straightener.
Elegant to look at and totally safe to use - no blades to trap little fingers - the Dyson Air Treatment range lets you switch between heating and cooling while dehumidifying and purifying the air.
There is nothing more annoying than inadequate light when you're trying to read or work but Dyson Lighting lets you put powerful light exactly where you need it. The custom-engineered optics and Heat Pipe technology are designed to last for decades. Choose from floor, desk, task or suspended designs.
Products for Business
Dyson technology is more than just about caring for your home. If you have business spaces to look after as well, then Dyson Business Products include energy-efficient hand dryers, air treatment equipment for healthy workspaces and powerful vacuums for efficient office cleaning.
Parts and Accessories
Most Dyson vacuums and hair dryers come with a range of tools and accessories to enhance and extend their use. If you lose these or want to add accessories to a basic model, you'll find them in Parts and Accessories. Simply select the machine you own and choose the parts or accessories that work with it.
Dyson Link App
Download the Dyson Link app to future-proof your home. Then you can control your robot vacuum, purifier or intelligent lighting from the app or by giving Siri or Amazon Alexa a voice instruction. With the app, you can set schedules, review performance data, access real-time troubleshooting and keep on top of maintenance.
Enjoying the Dyson Shopping Experience
Dyson wants you to get the right product for your needs so gives plenty of product information and shopping advice on its website. If you register the machine you have bought, you'll also receive plenty of after-sale care and information. Start your shopping experience on the Dyson website by choosing your category of machine such as Hair Care, Vacuum Cleaners or Air Treatment and then click on specific models for further information. If you want to compare products and prices, similar brands are Bissell, Kärcher and Hoover.
The Dyson Sale and Other Offers
Although Dyson products aren't cheap, they're generally considered to be value for money. There are, however, several ways you can save on your new Dyson vacuum or hairdryer. As new models are released, the price of older ones is reduced on the Dyson website. Shop around as well at trusted online or high street retailers such as Amazon or Currys PC World. Shops such as these often have sales where you can pick up good Dyson deals. They'll also take part in the Black Friday event of late November and you may find even greater Dyson offers on the product you want. Don't forget to pay regular visits to hotukdeals where Dyson promo codes are often available.
The Dyson Guarantee
Dyson has every faith in its products and backs this up with an extensive guarantee promise. Depending on your product, it will be guaranteed for either two or five years. Provided it is used in the way it should be your Dyson Guarantee covers:
Batteries and selected parts for the same time period as your machine's guarantee.

Free replacement if your machine cannot be repaired.
