I have an old V7 that I think is slowly dying....been wanting to get an Absolute for our hardwoods and tile. Is this worth the upgrade or should I splurge for the V10?

Definitely the refurb V7 since it might cost you just a little more than a new battery and soft head anyway and you can give away the old unit.

Don't fall for Dyson marketing hype and up sell. It's not a splurge, it's just a straight ripoff. Marginal benefit for more than double the price. Their marketing has been so successful in convincing people that you NEED their products. Cordless vacuums were also a genius business decision since they have planned obsolescence built in. Batteries don't last forever, and I guarantee a lot of people just buy a new unit when their battery gets old just like you're thinking of it.

V10 is kind of a big waste of money. If you have carpet you're better off vacuuming with a corded vacuum. It will get more than double out of the carpet than any cordless vacuum, even AFTER you've used the cordless on it. The amount of power of a $500 cordless isn't anywhere close to being comparable to a cheap $80 plug in vacuum.

It says "seller does not accept returns" do we think this is still worth it? Or should I wait until another Walmart refurbished deal like yesterday?

Don't get this, get a good corded vacuum. The amount of power in cordless vacuums (even the V11) don't come anywhere close to the same level as an $80 Bissell from Amazon. The fundamental limit is the battery, and if cordless vacuums used anywhere close to the same amount of power as corded they'd last 5 minutes tops.

I've run tests with my V7 absolute, which I love for sweeping hard floors and cleaning furniture, ceiling fans, cars, and other miscellaneous parts. But I do not use it for anything other than quick pickup on carpet.

I've vacuumed with the V7 and immediately afterward with my $80 Bissell clean view I got 5 years ago, and the Bissell sucks up more than double, and I'm most cases triple, the amount that the Dyson picks up. This is with only one cat on medium carpet.

I would never switch to a cordless vacuum as the sole vacuum in a house with carpet because at best the cordless is only picking up 1/3 of what even the cheapest tier of corded vacuum is picking up.

Maybe one of the Dyson Ball models would be good if you must have a Dyson. Shark plug in vacuums are pretty light and good and the DuoClean heads work well on hard floors too, but they are made in China.

So does eBay. Depends what you need. The allergy on eBay has returns and two year warranty.

The animal comes with extra brush heads/motorized tools that the allergy doesn't useful for pet owners.

If you don't need the animal tools, get the allergy new for 179 which has returns and 2 year warranty.

If something is wrong with your vacuum Dyson has immediately sent me replacement parts without sending mine back in.

Thank you so much for the reply! We have a Rainbow vac that breaks every 2 months and it's the biggest PIA to use, and I always default to my cheap ass Bissil I got from Walmart 5 or so years ago. That thing still works fine, but I'm always wondering if the expensive brands could do better and are easier to use. Thanks for the advice man, I sincerely appreciate it.

That's true, but my house is all hardwood floors and I have Neato D3 that runs through the house everyday. This cordless vac is perfect for quick messes or to do all the edges and corners and hard to reach areas every other week or so -- so it's perfect for us.
