Good grief are you going to post the same TD to every dyson deal? You let me know which swiffer can pick up all the crumbs from the kids, plus cat litter, plus deep clean my area rugs, plus get all the cat hair off the couches, all on one pad. Meanwhile, I will enjoy my v8, which can do all the above plus do a decent job on a bedroom carpet and still have battery left over.

My wife thought I was crazy when I bought one... but now she appreciates when all of the above gets done. I appreciate that I can do it in <15 mins, then hang it back on the wall and forget about it until the next time.

It's actually not redundant at all. A vacuum cleaner uses a vacuum to create suction in order to clean. Thus, vacuum cleaner. People just shorten vacuum cleaner to vacuum because we are lazy.

I've yet to see a swiffer, wet or dry, that will pick up spilled cereal, cat litter, and small debris from the floor. And I like the idea of fetching a stick vacuum off the shelf and getting it all picked up without having to touch the debris, or hunch over to find the swiffer cloths, or get my hands dirty putting the cloth on and taking it off (especially wet). I'd be done with the Dyson (or any other similar stick vac) before I even was ready to start pushing debris around with the swiffer.

Likewise I wouldn't even consider using the Dyson for what the Swiffer is designed for--actually washing the floor.

I bigger concern of mine as a first-time Dyson owner is how utterly scammy their entire sales model seems to be. They advertise multiple models for everything with no obvious comparison, the prices seem to fluctuate weekly or even daily, and as noted, there isn't even a rhyme or reason to the madness. Today gold is on sale. Tomorrow blue is 20% off. Then magenta is 15% off with tools. Buy a V6, but wait, the V8 has this tool on sale today but the V6 will have it tomorrow.

Why are there even priced color options? Surely it costs the same to paint a metal tube blue as it does orange. The only other places you'd pay more for a different color are Pokemon games, makeup, and cars. And the latter two are already pretty shady markets.

Why does the yellow color cost $100 more than the iron?

I'm wondering if it's worth getting the V10 over this one?

It's not yellow. It's covered in yellow gold flake.

is that like a 'stove cooker'?
You make this in every thread? Lol
This feels like the type of thing a person would have gotten over 70 years ago.

If you have small room and mostly carpet then the dyson cordless vacuum is worth it. If you have hardwood floor , then just buy the SWIFFER sweeper and get the dry refill , all total for $20 and it will clean MUCH better then Dyson, dusts and hairs and it can reach anywhere too where as Dyson can't since it is about 3 inch. No need to waste electricity and save $350. Don't be fooled by the free tools, they are pretty much not useful.
Only about $80 for the V8 would be a fair price for what it is.

BUY THE SWIFFER FOR $10 AND BE HAPPY!
