    Just moved from Dyson to Miele. The two compared Dyson is like running a helicopter at full speed in enclosed space.But horses for courses!

      Does Miele have a stick type cordless?

      I have no idea what you're trying to say.

      The Dyson is powerful? Dyson is loud? The Dyson blows a lot of air in random directions? The Dyson is a decapitation risk? The Miele is… not… like a helicopter… somehow?

      Huh? Revoke this guy's OzB licence!

  •  

    Not as cheap as the $349 HN deal before, but it's still a bargain :)

  •  

    Anyone know how long the Store Credits last? Don't want to be locked into having to buy something within 7 or even 30 days that's all.

  •  

    Can't see any details on TGG site about store credit or the bonus tool kit. Is it store specific?

  •  

    Good deal. However, I've been after the Dyson V6 Absolute Handstick for a while. Waiting on a good deal, anyone come across one?

  •  

    Worth upgrading from the standard DC45 with no accessories?

    This thing is seriously good especially with the extra tool kit. I have tiles and carpet and it does a great job. I got it for $367 and it included a $25 David Jones gift card and the toolkit.
    Off topic slightly, but how can David Jones have only a 1 month validity on gift cards. Seems odd.

    •  

      They are 2 years if you buy them. I think best way to extend these gift card lives is to buy something and refund it, so they issue a fresh one for you.

    •  

      Can I ask how you got this (V6 Handstick) for $367? The cheapest with 20% off DJ credit card comes up to $467, unless there's a specific promo available?

      •  

        It was a little while ago when they had an error for a couple of hours where the website allowed stacking of a discount off already reduced price.

      •  

        It was a combination of a number of deals. 20% off double stacked with small appliance deal they had running. Then there was $40 cash back with amex and using code QANTAS got you a $25 gift card. Plus it was 11.5 QFF points per dollar between qantas mall and bank issued amex points.

  •  

    I guess Masters can beat the price by 10%. Or get a $30 or $50 store credit from TGG hmmmm

    Anyone have an honest opinion on how much better the 'Animal' version is compared to this standard version? Looks like the 'Animal' version has a more powerful brush head but with the same run time therefore I assume the batteries also have a higher capacity… but is that where the differences end? Does it have some magic way of dealing with pet hair/fur? We have two very fluffy cats that drop fur similar to cotton wool, sometimes so light that it stays afloat in rooms for many minutes at a time! Any spinning brushes on any vacuum we've tried just get clogged so even though they have an 'Animal' model I'm still doubting it effectiveness. The best vacuum head for us still seems to be the standard 'slit' type with a simple strip of brush bristles on either side but it seems all decent cordless vacuums have motorised brush heads :( I may be wrong too but I don't want to blow $399 to find out it gets clogged the same way all the others do.

      Quote from another ozbargainer:

      For those wondering what is the difference between V6 and V6 animal, I rang the customer support and was told that it's only an extra part that comes with the Animal - it's called "Mini motorized tool" which is a nylon brush designed to remove pet hair and ground-in dirt from furniture, car seats and tight spaces. This part is sold separately for $60 in Australia.

      http://shop.dyson.com.au/spare-parts/mini-motorhead-962748-0...

      If you need this extra brush then you can order separately and save yourself $40 instead of paying the extra $100 for the Animal version. Talking to friends, I found that most people didn't really knew the difference before purchasing the Animal and in the end they never use the extra brush.

      I bought the V6 (non-animal) a few weeks ago and couldn't be happier. So far, I don't think I am missing on the Animal brush since we don't have pets at home.

      •  

        Legend Maki, thanks! You just saved me $399 :) I really do need to design a cordless vac specifically for long-haired pet owners… and yes, for the pets and the owners :) Couldn't afford the billions of marketing dollars spent by Dyson though so it'd probably never take off :(

      •  

        thanks for explaining that. makes me a lot happier about my choice!

        I can confirm this. I was talking to a Dyson rep at a store and they said basically the motors are the same across most of the Dyson range.

        The different "models" really is just what attachments you get in the box and the colour of the unit.

        This really made the choice easier for me as the range was doing my head in as most people thing the actually vacuum performance is different across the range.

        •  

          There is a performance difference though between the V6, V6 Animal and the V6 with motorised heads.

        •  

          @cortex21:

          yes, but that is to do with the attachments (heads etc) you get in the box.

          The suction rating of the motor body is the same across the line.

          • 28AW on normal mode
          • 100AW on turbo
          • All use the two-tiered cyclone system
          • All have the same bin volume

          I probably didn't write it properly, but that's what I meant before - the actual suction power is the same, it's the heads (mainly motorised) that give that extra difference.

        •  

          @dbun1: Yeah I know that, I do work for them lol. But I thought you meant in a general performance of picking up stuff.

        •  

          @cortex21:

          Yeah, sorry, my first post was written poorly.

      I have the Dyson DC44/ and Dyson DC59 animal handsticks.. We have two cats also. I suggest sticking with a Miele entry level vacuum… like the S series (around 350-400) we only use our handsticks for quick spills but for a thorough clean we use the Miele.

      •  

        Yeah cheers WinnieBlues. Similar to the entry-level Miele, our 15 year old Nilfisk King is still going very strong and works very, very well using the hard surface head as it has no brushes so there's nothing to clog and works just as well on carpets & rugs too. It also features a quick, easy & mess-free dust collection system in the form of a paper bag! Gasp, who would've thought ;) I have been keeping a close eye on these Dysons though because it would be nice to go completely cordless one day. Looks like we'll have to wait a little longer for them to release a model without spinning brushes (if ever).

  •  

    Has anyone successfully reach reach the $30/$50 store credit if spend over $400 page? doesn't seem to work …

  •  

    Thanks OP, just got a call to say it's ready for pick up. Store credit vouchers will be emailed at a later time apparently.

    •  

      From the good guys credit link: You will not need to claim your store credit, your store credit will be sent out to the purchaser's nominated email address by the 2nd of September 2015.

  •  

    Damn, ordered a V6 Animal on the 11th and didn't get it until the 18th due to stock leading to it not shipping until the 17th. The Dyson promo starts the 17th.

    Might try my luck and see whether they'll do it for me anyway, although not feeling too hopeful.

  •  

    Perfect timing! Thanks ciab!
    Needed a good cordless vacuum for the car and ad hoc uses!

  •  

    whats the major difference between this and the absolute? seems like a huge price difference!

    •  

      normally its not a huge price difference, its just that the other ones are not discounted.

    Link for $1 item to make the purchase price $400 and to receive $50 voucher !!

  •  

    Does the item need to be instore to allow pickup? The $1 and $2 items aren't in my local store - just wondering if this will cause any problem?

    Edit - OK, just tried it, can only click and collect at store with stock.

  •  

    This might sound silly but are you sure we get this voucher? Doesn't the following technically mean between these dates not ON these dates??

    "simply purchase a product or product over the value of $70 between Monday the 17th of August 2015 and Friday the 21st of August 2015"

    Thanks OP just purchased one! Cheers

  •  

    Damn… really good value. I got mine in June!!

  •  

    do they have the same deal on their eBay store?

  •  

    Do anyone know what happens when the battery is completely dead? I can't find battery replacements in Australia. That's stopping me from buying this instead of the corded versions.
    I guess the battery will start to die and it will last less minutes over time, right?
    Thanks

    •  

      Have a look on ebay. Make sure you have the machine serial number handy, because they will have a "Works for XXX-XXXX-YYYY-123" kind of thing

    •  

      http://shop.dyson.com.au/spare-parts?sku=1552

      They sell them on dyson.com.au. The shop has a 'spare parts' area. That or order from the US.

      • +1 vote

        Thanks for that. Yep, they have spare batteries there. I hope the battery will last a couple of years

      •  

        The prices of spare parts are surprisingly reasonable. One would think spare parts for a Dyson would be shockingly expensive.

        the battery is $85. A laptop battery would cost $150-$200 and have less capacity.

        •  

          Yeah I noticed that when researching them last week. Didn't look at shipping, but by all accounts it seemed pretty fair and far less than I was expecting. Before I found those I suspected that in the future I'd have to look at some unofficial third party one.

  •  

    Hey guys thanks for the deal just got one! Might be a stupid question but do I have to wait for confirmation on click and collect or do I just show up whenever I want!?
    EDIT: all good, wait for a call
    Cheers

  •  

    Finally caved and bought it.
    Cheers guys~!

  •  

    Is this suitable for a house with two people that shed long hair a lot, and a cat that sheds like you wouldn't believe? We've killed cheapo vacs before and I'm forever having to cut hair out of the motorised brush on the one we have now…

  •  

    Would a $399 worth of corded vaccum perform better than this?

      Yes, and if you are close to Chadstone HN they are selling the Miele S8310 for $348.

      •  

        This Miele S5212 will be $299 at Harvey Norman on saturday. As part of the Super Saturday deals http://www.harveynorman.com.au/vacuum-laundry-appliances/vac...

        •  

          Thanks guys but the cost of buying bags make it still worth going for Miele?

        •  

          @apprentice:
          I have the same question too. I like the fact the v6 is cordless but 20 minutes running time doesn't seem very good to me. I wonder if the performance between the v6 and the dc50 (corded, $447.00 - $50.00 credit) is important or not

        • +1 vote

          @apprentice: Don't forget the cost of replacing the battery pack in the Dyson every 2-3 years too then! $80 worth of battery pack can buy a LOT of Miele bags via eBay.

        •  

          @eshipley: The runtime with Turbo mode is about 6 minutes.
          The DC50 is a lot more powerful, but you'll have a larger machine with a cord.

          DC50 - 140 air watts
          v6 - 28 air watts (100 in turbo mode)

          It's the same argument with a corded drill and a cordless drill. If you want the convenience of a drill that's lighter and doesn't require dragging a cord around, you'll pay in terms of power and runtime.

          Only you can decide which is more important to you.

          I've completely replaced my mains-powered vacuum with a DC59 as my place is small so the runtime is no problem. The convenience of cordless is fantastic! If I had a larger place I'd probably consider getting a larger cordless vac like the Vax Air.

          @eshipley:

          I know a few people that have one and they say it's surprising how much you can get done in 20min when you don't have to plug and unplug the vacuum.

          They have both a barrel unit and the V6 and use the V6 99% of the time.

          At first the V6 was bought only for quick cleanups and keeping the bathroom 'hair free'

          @SteveAndBelle:

          $80 worth of battery pack can buy a LOT of Miele bags via eBay.

          I actually miss having bags. With the DC59 I get dust flying everywhere when I empty it into a plastic bag and tie it up. With my old vac I just remove the bag and dump it.

          The cordless convenience wins it for me though.

        •  

          @dbun1:

          That's a good point. My current vacuum is not good at all and it takes me around 1 hour to finish everything, even though the place is small.

        •  

          @eug:

          Well, if those 28 air watts are enough I might be able to clean 3 brs and stairs in 20 min. Thanks for that info

        •  

          @dbun1: I am really surprised at how well the V6 performs! I did half the house in the morning, and then half the house in the evening. Picks up an amazing amount of dust, dirt and fur especially in carpet. I did have to empty the cannister about 10 times though.

          My only regret is not realising the location I wanted to install the docking bay, didn't actually have a power point :(

  •  

    whats the battery life on the v6?

  •  

    Can't beat my dc59 animal, sucks everything like nothing.

    V6 absolute power heads work with this V6 only?
