The Dyson V6 is a cordless stick vacuum with a surprising amount of power and great convenience, but will it pass our cleaning tests?
This vacuum is a few years old, but continues to be one of the most powerful stick vacuums on the market. The digital motor and 2,200 mAh battery result in solid performance. The motorized brushroll is great for a variety of surface types, including hardwood floors, tile, carpet, and more.
The biggest con is simply the price. Even though it’s a few years old this vacuum still hoovers in the $250-$300 range, making it fairly expensive for a stick vacuum.
