dyson v8 animal cordfree handstick vacuum cleaner is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, quiet and easy to use Several friends recommended the stick vacuum cleaner based on their experience with the previous model (Animal version). I am so glad they did! It is so light, so quiet that the cat no longer goes for its life when I start vacuuming, no trailing cords to get tangled in and no changing power points. It has no trouble picking up our cat's fine fur from plush carpet and the battery life has been more than adequate to do the floors in our 3 bedroom home. I haven't had it long enough to comment on reliability or longevity but previous Dysons (bigger, heavier and noisier) have proved themselves on both counts so I have no reason to think the stick V8 will be different. So easy to use! It is a great vacuum cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY HAPPY Bought a Dyson V8 Animal to use as my main cleaner, as I have a bad back and could no longer use my old heavy cleaner. I'm very happy with my Dyson and tell everyone about it, my daughter tried ours and went out and bought one for herself. Never thought I would rave so much about a vacuum cleaner!! It is so easy to use, cleans well, is easy to empty and cleaning is much quicker. No more cords or heavy cleaners to drag around either. I happily recommend the Dyson to anyone, it is worth every cent we paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to use 40 mins on ordinary suction but only 7 mins on strong suction. Wish you cord use it corded to get stronger suction longer. Otherwise great unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from V8 animal I was so excited to receive my V8 animal a couple of weeks ago, i bought it as it said it was good on all surfaces but to be honest I am disappointed with how it goes on tiles (which is most of our house) it flicks food away rather than picking it up like it shows on the youtube videos. It does a good job on out big rug and couch just not so much on the tiles. I have been trying to research if there is a way to buy the second absolute head for the animal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Xmas present! This cleaner was recommended to me by a "clean freak" friend. So I asked for one for Xmas and I'm glad I did! It makes those quick cleaning jobs easier than hauling out the plug in cleaner. We have a cat who is very fluffy and he brings in bits of the garden and leaves etc on his tail and they end up on the rug and the carpet stairs, so the Dyson Animal is perfect for that. I'm sure I will find many more uses too...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's an Animal! The V8 Animal is exactly easy on the back and shoulders to simply pull it off the wall, do the ceiling corners, around the nooks and crannies with the smaller tools then whack on the the larger floor head, switch on the power booster and it's done in 5 minutes...this machine will change your life and definitely make you a better person...the V8 is the way to is worth the little extra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended We've had the Dyson V8 for over a month now and we've put it to the test almost every day since we're renovating our home. It's made light, quick work of vacuuming everything a renovation dishes out. The improved design features are welcome along with the longer battery life. We still have our 5 year old Dyson and its still going strong but this one is on another level. Very happy so far!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love! I love my new Dyson. The only regret I have is I should have bought one sooner. I have a very very fluffy Border Collie. My carpets have never looked so good. It's so easy and convenient to use. I whip it out a couple of times a day just to give the place a quick once over. I rave on and on about it to my friends. If you're considering buying one then just do it. You won't regret it.
