One quick note, we are about to start another multi part series but this time with the Roomba 980 and the Neato Botvac Connected D7 so hit the subscribe button to see which one comes out on top .
The Dyson V10 is a very advanced machine, it advertises great airflow at it really does have a ton. One of the most telling examples was its performance on the crevice pickup test. It picked up the debris in the crevice with 1 pass with the torque drive and the soft brush head. It was the best performance I had ever seen on this test, this is especially interesting when you consider than some vacuums cant pick it up at all and some very expensive uprights like the Miele U1 takes 7 passes to pick it up.
The pickup tests were on the whole very good. I would highly recommend getting the fluffy brush though, Which only comes standard with the V10 Absolute because it is essential for picking up larger debris. The Torgue drive cleaner head was very good for carpets and small debris on hard floors mostly, but the fluffy was by far the one I used most often.
We did have some trouble with the machine getting clogged with fruit loops when trying to vacuum a whole lot of them at the same time like we did in the tests, but if it was isolated pieces it had no issues.
One thing that really impressed me was excellent way the weight was distributed with the V10. It felt extremely light when using it as a handheld especially compared to the Ionflex.
It was easy to maneuver on hard floors and carpet. Overall I give its ease of use incredibly high marks for both surfaces.
Our battery life tests showed 61 minutes on low power, but only 6.5 minutes on high power, I didn’t test the medium setting. But it would presumably split the difference lets say 25 minutes. The low power setting didn’t seem like it picked up too much though, so if you have a job longer than 7 minutes medium power would be the way to go.
It came with a good variety of attachments which makes it it a very versatile tool to have around the house I did an entire video of the uses of the attachments on our channel.
One negative was the trigger, it seemed like I was always accidently pressing it when trying to just carry it.
Another negative was the cost, its pretty pricey but again it is a finley crafted piece of equipment that does represent some of the latest technology available.
Overall I was very impressed with the V10 especially because of the airflow for such a light machine. Is it better than the V8 yes, but I would only recommend it if you get the absolute version or at least buy the fluffy brush separately.
