Tests conducted to compare the performance of each Dyson V-Series vacuum cleaner were performed on different types of surfaces and with varying degrees of dirt. Wanting to make a summary and an estimate of all the tests carried out, we can conclude that the Dyson V10 and V11 are the ones that obtained the maximum score (99% efficiency). With the V8 coming in at 96%. The V6 at 91% and the V7, which is the model with the lowest score, at 88%. It should be emphasized that these are averages and not absolute values. Especially between the V6, V7 and V8 there is a greater “disparity” where much depends on the type of surface. V10 and V11 have more homogeneous performance.
To understand and be able to make a comparison on the usability of a vacuum cleaner, we can analyze it on different levels. We did this by thinking about handling and practicality of daily use. The five models of the Dyson V series have almost the same dimensions and, therefore, also in terms of handling we are more or less on the same levels. When you decide to use the Dyson vacuum cleaner, as we have said, you have to hold down the appropriate button and you have to keep it pressed for the entire time of use. This aspect, which for some is a little uncomfortable, is aimed at avoiding keeping the vacuum cleaner on when not in use. To reduce waste, a few more sacrifices can certainly be worthwhile.
As for the emptying of the dust tank, however, and the maintenance of Dyson we have several differences. The Dyson V6 uses a lever located in front of the suction activation button. It is an inconvenient and not entirely effective solution. The Dyson V7 and V8 have a different system with a latch that blocks the opening of the container. Once the lock is removed, the tank opens and can be emptied. This system is certainly easier to operate, but it requires more force and more operations to perform. The V10 and V11 have revolutionized the system and provide for the presence of the locking catch placed on the side of the tank and to operate it you have to press down. This new design allows you to place the vacuum cleaner directly on the dustbin and press the button to completely empty the tank without coming into contact with the collected debris.
A separate mention deserves the LCD display, a unicum of this series and which is only provided on the Dyson V11. The display shows various information, both on the percentage of residual autonomy and on the suction program in progress, as well as on the type of maintenance to be done and an indication of where there is any obstruction on which to intervene.
As far as maintenance is concerned, the Dyson models do not have particular needs. All have a filter (central, HEPA or both) which can be easily washed by hand and does not require replacement, barring damage. The only maintenance operations to be done are therefore to empty the tank and recharge the battery.
We can then move on to talk about the autonomy of Dyson vacuum cleaners. The company ensures that each battery has a duration of 15 years, thus being able to count on excellent longevity. As for the battery capacity, it is almost directly proportional to the engine power. As one increases, therefore, the other has also increased over time. The model with the most powerful battery is the Dyson V8, with a 2800mAh battery that ensures a range of about 40 minutes and a recharge time of 5 hours (this is also the highest value). The Dyson V6 has a 2200mAh battery for a runtime of 20 minutes and a charging time of 3.5 hours. The V7 features a 2100mAh battery for 30 minutes of runtime and 3.5 hours of charging time.
The Dyson V10 and V11 have a 2600mAh battery that allows for an autonomy of 60 minutes for a charging time of 3.5 hours. On the subject of autonomy, we must also always consider how to use the vacuum cleaner. The more powerful programs, in fact, reduce battery life.
Regarding autonomy, we must also talk about the wall support to recharge the vacuum cleaner. This is also very convenient for keeping the vacuum cleaner upright and reducing its clutter, being able to place it behind the door and hide it from view when not in use.
Finally, let’s analyze the noise level of these vacuum cleaners. The quietest are the Dyson V11 and V7, while the loudest is the V6. The Dyson V11 also provides for the presence of an Eco mode, which also affects the level of noise emissions.
We have come to the end of this comparison between the 5 models of Dyson V series vacuum cleaners and it is only right to draw conclusions. It is difficult to determine the absolute best, as in the evaluation of a device of this type, the economic aspect, personal taste and various needs must also be considered. It is evident that, simplifying a lot, the most recent model is more evolved than the immediately preceding one (and gradually more and more increasing the differences), but this is not always necessarily the case.
To summarize everything, we can say that the Dyson V6 is the one that, after so many years, still boasts a remarkable quality-price-efficiency ratio, having achieved cleaning efficiency tests similar to those of the most recent models. In terms of absolute performance, the Dyson V10 is what convinced the most. Those who have a pet find the best allies for cleaning their home in the Dyson V8 and V10. For those who have a second home or want to take their vacuum cleaner with them when on vacation, the Dyson V7 and V8 offer better advantages because they are lighter and because, at the time of purchase, they can also be requested (completely free of charge). a travel bag, particularly convenient for carrying all your equipment. Finally, the Dyson V11 is the best in terms of innovation and the presence of the LCD display is one of those particularly intriguing goodies.
