About this deal

All Dyson cordless vacuums have scrolled cyclones to capture dust and debris from the airflow with no loss of suction. It weighs less, is easier to maneuver, incurs minimal recurring costs, delivers superior air filtration performance, makes less noise, and does a better job clearing debris in tight crevices. As we mentioned earlier, the V7 may not have the same amount of suction as the newer Dyson V10 and V11 handsticks, but it’s more than capable of hoovering up pet hair as well. In its 'MAX' power setting, it's liable to getting stuck on rugs, making it hard to push around, so it's best to clean carpets in its default 'Powerful' setting. It also comes with a turbo brush to make it easier to vacuum carpeted stairs in its handheld configuration.

Its vertical orientation makes it smaller than that of newer Dyson models like the Dyson V11 or larger stick vacuums like the Shark Pet/Rocket Pro Cordless, but since it's made of clear plastic and has a max fill line, you can easily tell how full it is at a glance. For anyone living in a larger space, you could consider the Dyson V8, which promises up to 40 minutes of fade-free power, or opt for one of Dyson’s newer models. That means you don’t need to stick your fingers inside the dustbin to clean it out (although we would recommend you wipe it out every once in a while). which includes a broad range of new testing procedures to measure stain and water-clearing performance, suction power, crevice-cleaning performance, noise levels, and air filtration performance.

The service includes labour and spare parts where required (excluding additional accessories and filters), which are guaranteed for 12 months or until service support ends for your machine – whichever is soonest. The manufacturer advertises its motor as producing 100W of power compared to the Dyson V8's 115W motor, so it isn't surprising that it has a harder time dealing with debris in deeper crevices.

It sits below the newer, more expensive Dyson V8 in the manufacturer's lineup, with a less powerful suction motor and a lower-capacity battery, so it isn't quite as effective at clearing away debris in cracks or in carpets. However, there isn't a brushroll on/off switch for its floorhead, so it can get stuck on plush carpeting and rug tassels.Stiff nylon bristles remove ground-in dirt, while the carbon fibre filaments remove fine dust from hard floors. Conversely, the Dyson is a little more effective on low-pile carpet and has fewer parts that need regular cleaning. All Dyson cordless vacuums have long lasting energy-dense batteries to clean here, there and everywhere around your home.

Converts to handheld The V7 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner conveniently transforms into a handheld unit, perfect for quick clean-ups, or removing pet hair from your car or in the crevices of your sofa. And pretty much everything inside drops out immediately, with only a very thin layer of dust sticking to the interior (which can easily be wiped out if you're particularly finicky).The V8 performs far better on bare floors, where it clears large debris like cereal with much less difficulty.

I finally traded up from V7 (which didn’t need replacing and still going strong so I gave to my mother) as I had different needs as I now have disabilities. She's also the Australian Managing Editor of Digital Camera World and, if that wasn't enough, she contributes to T3 and Tom's Guide, while also working on two of Future's photography print magazines Down Under. This update builds on our previous 'Suction' test with a new ' Airflow' test that more accurately measures a vacuum's ability to generate air movement. I wasn’t all that impressed with the regular brush head’s ability to clean right up to the edges, either, especially compared with the Dyson Light Ball Multi Floor, which is far more impressive in this regard.It also has a longer maximum runtime and has a battery life indicator to let you know roughly how much charge is left. Aside from the different variations, the V7 itself sits somewhere in-between the Dyson V6 and V8, in both its design and performance characteristics. It's lighter than alternatives like the Shark Vertex Pro Lightweight, and it doesn't feel very heavy in your hand. Unlike the V10 and V11, there’s no real indication of how much battery life is left on the V7 – the only way you’ll know it needs to be plugged in is when the motor dies, which it does without any reduction in suction at all, in keeping with Dyson’s fade-free promise.
