Review Summary:

If you want good cleaning power out of an easy to handle cordless, then the Dyson V6 is a good machine to get. The powerful suction and motorised brush do a great job on floors, then you also have the convenience of the detachable handheld for all of the tough to reach spots. When you consider the cleaning capabilities, the versatility and the ease of use, it makes the Dyson V6 a great value.

With powerful suction and the ability to turn into a handheld, the Dyson V6 cordless vacuum is one of the best stick vacuums that you will find. It can work on all surfaces and it is designed to be one of the easiest vacuums to use. From top to bottom, it offers one of the best user experiences that you will find in a cordless.

Being a member of the V6 line, this model has Dyson’s V6 motor. It is a digitally controlled motor that delivers 50% more suction than the old Dyson V2 motor. For cleaning power, this machine has suction that is comparable to many of the best corded vacuums. Additionally, it uses Dyson’s two-tier cyclone design for reliable suction and it has a motorised brush for removing even the most set in dirt and dust.

At just over 2kg, this little stick vacuum is very light and it is well balanced. If you are looking for a cordless model that is easy to handle, this one will not disappoint. You can breeze around the house cleaning quickly, and the design makes it easy to just point the vacuum up to the ceiling for cleaning up high.

This machine is also a 2-in-1. You can separate the handle from the stick and use the V6 as a handheld vacuum. This can make it great for cleaning in the car or for cleaning on the stairs and furniture. For more cleaning options, you also get a combination tool and a crevice tool. In addition to this, you have the turbo mode for tackling the really tough messes. This is great because it adds more suction power, but it depletes the battery quickly, so you only want to use it if you have to.

The only issue with the ease of use is that you have to hold down the trigger to keep the machine running. This is good for conserving the battery power, but it can be a bit of a pain after a while. It would be great if they added a trigger lock that you could apply for times that you know you are going to need to keep the machine running.

Being a Dyson, the V6 is also a bagless machine. It uses Dyson’s hygienic bin emptying system, so none of the dust and dirt gets away when you empty the machine. The only knock on this end is that the bin is quite small. With a capacity of 0.4 litre, it is basically just enough to get through one quick cleaning session, and you may even find that you have to empty it on some of the cleaning jobs that take up the full 20-minute battery life.
