Who should buy Dyson V15 Detect Absolute

  • If you have a mix of hard floors and carpet in your house, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute might be suitable for you because it has two floor cleaning attachments. The high torque cleaner head is great for carpets while the soft roller cleaner head is best used on hard floors.
  • If you live in a large house, you won’t have to worry about frequently emptying the dustbin of the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute since it has a capacity of 0.76L.
  • If you have dark-colored floors, the green laser of the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute might be helpful in making sure that you get all the dirt because it makes dust visible on hard floors.
  • If you live with someone who has long hair or with pets, the anti-hair tangle feature of the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute might be a great help since you don’t have to frequently remove hairs that are tangled in the cleaning nozzle.

Who should NOT buy Dyson V15 Detect Absolute

  • If you are not comfortable pressing the trigger switch continuously while cleaning, you might want to check the Dreame V11 and the Samsung Jet 70 Turbo VS15T7031R1/EN that has a lock button feature so that you don’t have to continuously hold the trigger switch when cleaning.
  • If you don’t want a loud cordless vacuum, you might have to refrain from using the highest suction power of the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute or check other cordless vacuums that produce lower noise levels, such as the Tineco PURE ONE S12 and the AEG CX7-2-45BM.
  • If you are on a tight budget, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute might not be practical to buy because it has an expensive price.

This is our verdict of the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 14-10-2021

The Dyson V15 Detect Absolute has an expensive price but it offers various advanced features that provide convenience and ease of use. Its main selling point is the green laser found in the soft roller cleaner head that illuminates microscopic dust that is hard to see on hard floors. This allows you to make sure that you get all the dirt even on dark areas. However, it doesn’t work well in rooms that have bright lights.

It supports three cleaning modes, which are the Eco, Medium/Auto, and Boost mode. The Eco mode uses the lowest suction power but also lasts longer, for about 60 minutes. The Medium mode, also called the Auto mode automatically increases its suction power on areas that need more suction. In this mode, the vacuum makes the decision on what suction mode to use so the battery life on the Auto mode depends on the type of dirt in your home. The Boost mode uses the highest suction power but you can only use this for 15 minutes and it has a louder noise level of up to 81 dB.

You can control the suction mode by pressing the button below the LCD display. The LCD display shows the remaining battery on each suction mode so you know how many minutes are left until the battery dies. It also shows the amount and type of dust that are sucked in, however, this information is not very useful in day-to-day cleaning. It only assures you that your vacuuming session is giving your floors a deep clean.

The Dyson V15 Detect Absolute comes with six cleaning attachments, which are the high torque cleaner head, soft roller cleaner head, anti-tangle screw tool, soft dusting brush, combination tool, and crevice tool. It has two main floor nozzles which are the high torque cleaner head and soft roller cleaner head.

The high torque cleaner head is great for carpets. It has an effective anti-hair tangle feature which is great for those who have furry pets in their home or those who have long hair. The soft roller cleaner head is great for hard floors. It is equipped with a green laser that illuminates dust particles that are hard to see.

If the battery life is not enough to clean your whole house and if you have money to spare, you might want to buy an extra battery. Unlike in the Dyson Outsize where an extra battery is already included in the box, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute doesn’t come with an extra battery so you have to buy it separately. The battery in the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute is detachable so you can have more than one battery. You can charge the extra battery while cleaning so you can have a spare battery in case you needed more time to clean. This allows you to switch the drained battery to a fully charged one so you can continue with your cleaning uninterrupted.

Just like other Dyson cordless vacuums, the trigger switch needs to be pressed continuously while cleaning. Dyson says that it will optimize the battery life but it might be bothersome to continuously hold the trigger switch the entire time you are cleaning.

Overall, if you have money to spend and want an outstanding cordless vacuum that provides convenience and ease of use, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute might be the one for you.
