Dyson Ball Upright or V6 HEPA Stick Vac

I had the DC25 a few years ago (very similar to this one). it was very nice, comes with a good warranty and the ball is an interesting feature. the best thing is the power though, it was at least 5 times more powerful than a standard vacuum.

I moved into a new house with hardwood floors and purchased a V6 HEPA Stick Vac when they were released a little over a year ago. I have since sold off my full Dyson upright because this portable vac is so incredibly powerful and much easier to maneuver on hardwood. It does a good job on the area rugs that I have, but is an absolute MUST for non-carpeted surfaces. And don’t even get me started on trying to vacuum stairs with the upright compared to the V6.

In short, this is the best cordless vacuum I’ve ever used and I have gifted two of them to family members already. Perfect for small apartments and the inevitable ‘spring shedding’ of the family pet.

Wait, is this the cord free or the absolute cord free? Looks like the former, but it also says HEPA, which apparently is only part of the absolute model.

So which one is it?

Cord free: https://www.amazon.com/Dyson-V6-Cord-Free-Vacuum/dp/B00SMLJPIC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492667972&sr=8-1&keywords=dyson+v6+stick+vacuum+hepa

Absolute cord free: https://www.amazon.com/Dyson-V6-Absolute-Cord-free-Vacuum/dp/B00SMLJPKA/ref=sr_1_3/145-9392979-2915310?ie=UTF8&qid=1492667887&sr=8-3&keywords=v6+hepa

will either of these this ship to an APO address?

Are they 220v compatible?

From the description:
Shipping Note: Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, PO Boxes, and APO addresses is not available for this item

This is truly the V6 HEPA https://www.dyson.com/vacuum-cleaners/cordless/dyson-v6/dyson-v6-slim-exclusive.aspx which is the same vacuum as the cord free link you posted PLUS the HEPA filtration that you only typically see on the higher-end models like the Absolute. All Dyson stick vacuums that have the HEPA filtration will have the blue cap close to the handle.

It’s neither one of those, it’s this: http://www.dyson.com/vacuum-cleaners/cordless/dyson-v6/dyson-v6-slim-exclusive.aspx

Which is basically this: http://www.dyson.com/vacuum-cleaners/cordless/dyson-v6/dyson-v6.aspx but with a HEPA filter.

Why not just order from Dyson’s ebay store for $20 cheaper and free shipping?

Do you have a link for that?

How are these with wife/pet hair? Between the two of them, my current vac is constantly getting clogged.

Are you married to your pet? Is your wife your pet? I’m confused.


Or this

Same price, I think, plus free shipping.


Sooooooo… Cancel current order and pick it up from EBAY also includes a 6 month warranty and free shipping. Is there some catch to this?

Womp :frowning:

Are you going to beat that price?

Ours has the added HEPA filter that typically comes with upgraded cord-free models. The HEPA filter is indicated by the blue cap close to the handle.

Nope. We can’t beat it. 'Tis a sad day.

Well you better take a loss, this could ruin your reputation forever!
