Terrible reviews though for these units from NewEgg.

not sure what you're inferring since they ship from Dyson (not Newegg) regardless.

I ordered this a couple of weeks ago. An hour later, after reconsidering all the negative reviews about the poor job Dyson did of refurbishing the units, I decided to cancel. The vendor, Dyson, responded that the order couldn't be canceled because they had already started processing it. However, they suggested that it would be no problem to refuse the shipment when it was delivered.

1. UPS would not accept the delivery refusal without me providing them with a return label. I contacted Dyson and they said (without accepting any blame for failing to mention this earlier) that I would be responsible for return shipping cost. Fine, I'll pay for the return shipping.

2. When I attempted to have the refund processed by NewEgg, not only did they charge me $35 for the shipping cost, they charged me $30 for restocking fee. What restocking fee? NewEgg said that the vendor charged a 15% ($30) restocking fee.

3. So, it's back to Dyson. They haven't responded yet about waiving the restocking fee.

Paying a $65 penalty on a $200 purchase doesn't make sense. I think I'd rather give it away at this point than return it to the vendor.

Granted, it's my fault for not thinking through the purchase initially. However, Dyson's failure to disclose the return shipping cost and the restocking fee is inexcusable.

P.S. Dyson did not waive the restocking fee. I ended up giving the V8 away to one of my cousins. He has an 8-month old baby and could use the vac.

Thanks for saving me time and money.

These are overpriced as hell cheap Malaysian plastic parts and people drank the kool aid for these prices you might as well just get a robot vacuum and forget about having to vacuum as long as is hard floors

Even $200 is too much for these vacuums but people fell for this nice looking finishes and shit thinking is a quality product lol

They never were and thats why they always refurbished and on sale people on this forum seem to think dyson is high quality and always go crazy for them when posts like this happen

Just get a roborock and you won't have to vacuum again unless you have hard floors

Lots of upright vacuums cheaper than dyson that destroy them what you need is a bagged vacuum

But people want no cables no shit and you pay the consequences bu getting ripped off by dyson

Dyson spends millions in marketing

Every stupid average joe buys these vacuum thinkg theyre quality

Can you provide anything to backup how smart you are compared to those who think these are good vacuums?
Here is a site that tests all types of vacuums, they have the V8 as the best stick vac and give you all of the testing and metrics to back it up.
