Probably better to buy from Dyson + pricematch so you get the 3 free tools?

The coupons list dyson as excluded, but cashiers never reject it in store.

Can confirm. Just did this today for the Animal 2. Came out to ~$350 after tax with a coupon that "expired" in 2015 we had laying around.

$400 for any vac seems triple the reasonable price
Nope I have the V8 Absolute. And now I just vacuum randomly. With a wired vacuum your have to take it out of the closet or where ever you store it. Uncord it, plug it in, it's also heavy and doesn maneuver as well. And I had a Shark Lift-Away so it's somewhat maneuverable and not as heavy and small. And then you'd have to move the cord every 25 feet. It's all about convenience. With a coed vacuum I would never vacuum. With this I vacuum the whole house. Ceiling, desks, corners, etc. I actually bother with using attachments while with the cord regular vacuum I don't bother with anything outside of regular vacuuming.

Bought with intention of using only for car. But ended up cleaning house everyday. While I'm just walking around back and forth on most walked areas.

The price is very reasonable. There's a Chinese brand that sells for 150$ but the suction is 6/12 kpa. A regular vacuum is 20kpa. Dyson V8 is 12/22 kpa of suction.
This is based on low/high mode suction.

I wholeheartedly agree with you. Especially for dog hair...it's just so easy to use this instead of dragging the cumbersome corded vacuum around. And with about 40 minutes of normal run time I can get the entire house done.

If you are even REMOTELY considering spending over $300 on a vacuum, just get a Miele. Their basic one is only $200 and it will work better than any Dyson: https://www.amazon.com/Miele-Clas...B075QPCX9L
or one minor step up: https://www.amazon.com/Miele-Comp...B06XHPLYZL
If you want one with an active head: https://www.amazon.com/Miele-Comp...B06XHQLDJV
https://www.amazon.com/Miele-41BA...B00S1AGGWW

The Mieles are bulletproof, they are well-sealed, very sturdy construction, can take abuse and still work perfectly fine. We spent about $900 on a top-end Miele with HEPA, multiple powered heads, etc, and its the best appliance we own, and will outlast our pets and our floors undoubtedly.

+1. V8 absolute totally worth it, and got it for $352 from Dyson (price match BBB, no tax, 3 tools)

I don't doubt Miele makes good vacuums, but whole point of these Dysons is that they're cordless. I'm willing to spend $300+ so that when my kid smashes crackers all over the floor, I can yank my vacuum off the wall and have it vacuumed up in less than a minute. I have central vac, but if I needed a primary corded vac then yes, I would agree with you and look at brands outside of Dyson.

FYI -- contrary to how it may sound, this is the "Animal" version so it actually includes LESS than the regular v8 absolute package.

Everything is pretty much the same, except the soft roller head (for hard floor) is not included in the animal version.

This was a pretty important detail for me because I only have hardwood floors. I could have probably lived without the soft roller head, but since I'm already paying a premium price, I wanted to go with the optimal attachment.

Otherwise, has been pretty good. The cordless design makes such a big difference in effort saved. As everyone knows, the real effort comes in the small yet frequent occurrences of day to day life. I have a dog that sheds (ironically, the animal is not the optimal version in this case) so it would just be a pain to deal with the upright every day. This has less suction power than the upright, but has more than enough to handle day-to-day spot cleaning.

The Miele looks bulky for a cordless

I actually think the soft roller brush works better on hardwoods/tile than the standard brush on carpet. I don't think I would purchase it without it.

I bought the V8 Absolute while on sale at Costco during the holidays.

So easy to break it out in the kitchen and just vacuum up whatever mess is on the floor from the kids.
