I've purchased 2 of these hoovers, the Dyson V8 Absolute and the Dyson V8 Fluffy+ and both hoovers almost immediately after the 12 month 'warranty' expired the batteries went from 20 minutes cleaning (never 40 minutes as advertised) to now less than 5 minutes cleaning time!
I'm really disappointed that James Dyson and Dyson hoovers won't invest time and money to develop a battery that will last at least 2 years and work to the times they advertise. The batteries Dyson supply for this hoover are absolutely appalling and should not be allowed to be sold.
I've used Dyson hoovers since the DC01 (and I still have it) but switched brands because I felt Dyson lost its way through the years. However, the marketing was so good for this hoover I thought I would give it a go and was initially so impressed I bought a second V8 and gave it to my father.
My partner and my father are men who don't do any housework and to get any man to do the vacuuming is a miracle, and the fact they both loved using their Dysons was brilliant to watch, especially since my mum and I wouldn't have to do the hoovering any more!
Just over twelve months after buying these 2 vacuums they both depleted their batteries to the point where a 'full charge' would last no more than 5 minutes. Every time the hoover was used the batteries were exhausted and then charged before using again. This is always the best way to make sure any rechargeable battery will last longer.
However, Dyson batteries for this hoover are a joke and should not be allowed to be sold. Any rechargeable battery that cannot provide at least 2 years service is unfair and now I have to buy a new battery every year just so these hoovers can be used for 20 minutes on full power.
Overall the hoovers are good, especially for men as they seem to be addicted to using them but if James Dyson or anyone else from Dyson reads this review please spend some money on developing a decent battery and not provide these cheap alternatives which seem to be supplied as standard for Dyson hoovers!

Easy to put together although a more concise description of what the tools are meant for would have been appreciated.
I liked the fact that it came ready charged.
It seems a bit heavy for wielding up high for any length of time, but maybe that's my lack of muscle. I shall do that job in two goes!
I'm very happy with my purchase.

I already have one of these although bought another for a gift.. This one looks slightly different (different colour filter) but works perfectly well. Only shame is that it is available cheaper from other sellers! I paid more as I wanted it as a gift, but the £30 more is always frustrating! JOhn Lewis would have been cheaper with longer guarantee...

Excellent product. I used old rollerball dyson first and then used the new cordless - it filled the waste bin with deep cat hairs that the rollerball couldn't get...... i was amazed

Generally speaking this hoover has great suction, great for hard floors but has poor battery life.

This is a great cordless hoover, until it goes wrong - I bought this in May 19 and its November 19 so less than 6 months old and its broken. I have been trying to get hold of someone who can help, but have been on hold for so long (over an hour) it cut off.

Really disappointed as it took us a while to save up to buy something so expensive.

Given what it cost, I am really disappointed in the customer service around this hoover.

When it works the hoover is fantastic, but we only use it once a fortnight now because the filter has to be cleaned after every use otherwise the Dyson V8 keeps cuting out. You then have to wash the filter and wait for it to dry. We then use it for 10/15 minitites and get the same problem. I've rung Dyson 3 times and they say this is normal. I would not recommend this Dyson V8 at all.
