The Dyson V6 Absolute is a very popular stick vacuum at this time and we have also rated it the best "top-end" stick vacuum in 2016 (see our Best Stick Vacuums list). We have reviewed the vacuum in detail here - Dyson V6 Absolute Review - but thought it might be helpful to put together a few quick videos highlighting the machine's pros and cons. In the videos we address things like size of the dust canister, emptying the dust canister, filters, suction power, battery life, size of the vacuum, cleaning ability on pet hair, and several other areas. The Absolute is the pinnacle of the V6 series of vacuums (2017 update: there is now a newer V8) and if you are in the market for one of these machines the videos in this article should help you better understand what you can expect.
Regardless of the "Cons" or "Dislikes" the V6 Absolute gets stellar ratings from owners. In our review we found over 3000 consumer ratings and when averaged they resulted in an average score of about 90/100 which is very good. We have the machine at home and it is really our "go to" vacuum for all quick cleanups - especially stairs.
