Just last week, I released my “Modern Desk Setup MAKEOVER” video where I also featured the Dyson V15 Detect. It proved to be a valuable tool for our renovation project providing a handy and powerful cordless vacuum to clean the floor every now and then and prevent the dust and dirt from spreading across the entire house. So in this article, I’ll share with you 5 reasons why you should get this. If you have the budget, this is easily one of the best, most powerful, and intelligent cordless vacuums on the market right now.
The first reason is the quality. Not only it looks cool and fancy but it also has good build quality all around, from the main unit up to all of its accessories and attachments. We’ll discuss it one by one later when we talk about all of the attachments.
I also appreciate the packaging and the unboxing experience, all the components are well-protected inside.
Accessories and Attachments
Probably one of the best selling points of the Dyson V15 Detect is the number of attachments that comes with the package and the versatility they offer. We pretty much have all we need for all sorts of cleaning requirements here.
Let me break it down one by one.
Inside the box, we have the main digital motor bar which is essentially the all-purpose attachment.
It features an anti-tangle comb and a combination of soft and hard brushes.
It also has a couple of adjustable red pathways that you can use to control the suction pressure or allow for larger objects to pass through.
It also has soft rubber padding at its rear end and soft fabric around the front to protect your furniture.
For most tasks, this is what I use and you don’t have to worry about vacuuming hairs, strings, and similar things.
Next, we have its little brother, the Hair screw tool which also features an anti-tangle design and is more suitable for human and pet hairs and small spaces.
You can also use it for desktops, furniture, office chairs, bedsheets, and things around that nature. Essentially an all-around compact vacuum attachment.
Then we have the laser slim fluffy cleaner head that features a freakin’ laser that reveals tiny dust on hard floors.
This makes cleaning dark areas easier and thanks to its slim form factor, it is ideal for tight spaces.
It also features soft nylon and anti-static carbon fiber filaments to help pick up dust from hard surfaces and tight spaces
This is also the one I use for more sensitive surfaces since it uses a softer fabric.
All three main attachments that I’ve mentioned above are motor driven with built-in circuit boards, making them one of the smartest vacuum attachments on the market. More on that later.
Aside from the smart attachments, we also have the 2-in-1 combination tool with a wide nozzle and a brush good for desktop use or in small spaces.
Speaking of small spaces, of course, we have the crevice tool for corners and narrow spaces.
It even has some ventilations to reduce unwanted pressure.
We also have the extension rod and a clip so that you can attach the basic heads for quick access. super convenient.
We also have the charging station and the power brick. You can also use the wall mount without attaching the power adapter and charge the battery separately if you’re into that.
And lastly, we have the main Dyson V15 Detect Cordless Vacuum.
It features a pistol-like design with an intuitive trigger, a pull-down lever to eject dust and debris, and a magazine-like removable battery. Definitely feels badass like a ghost buster.
It also has a removable and washable filter.
Powerful Main Unit
The third reason why you should get the Dyson V15 Detect is the fact that it is one of the most powerful cordless vacuums on the market.
The Dyson V15 Detect features the so-called Hyperdymium motor that can spin up to a whopping 125,000rpm.
The first time I tried it, I can immediately tell how powerful it is. Not only you can hear the immense power of the motor but you can also see it with your own eyes with each and every swipe across the floor.
As you can tell from the image below, the difference between the area that I’ve already cleaned from the one that I haven’t yet is night and day.
It also features a patented cyclone design and fine dust filter that can generate a centrifugal force of up to 100,000g and prevent fine dust from hindering the performance of the motor.
I would recommend, however, to avoid vacuuming extremely fine dust to prevent the filters to clog up and to frequently empty the bin even though it’s not yet full and wash the removable filter as often as you can to maximize the performance of the vacuum, and of course, increase its lifespan.
I would also highly recommend you prevent vacuuming large and abrasive objects like rocks, nails, and things that can damage the brushes and other parts of the vacuum heads and the main unit.
Another best-selling point of the Dyson V15 Detect that makes it stand out from the rest of the available cordless vacuums on the market is its extensive smart features that not only help in terms of convenience but also for efficiency and longevity.
The main unit, for example, features a nifty LCD display that allows you to change in between modes like Eco, Medium, and Boost.
Eco mode provides longer battery life of up to more than 50 minutes but with a more conservative performance, Boost mode provides the most powerful suction power but can only run around less than 10 minutes, the Medium or auto mode provides a balanced approach automatically adjusting the suction power depending on the demand.
The Dyson V15 Detect features the so-called Dyson DLS Technology inside the main Digital Motorbar that automatically adjusts the suction power depending on the floor type.
This is more apparent when switching between hard floors and fluffy surfaces like rugs and carpets. You can definitely notice it ramping up the motor.
Aside from that, the main unit itself features a piezo sensor that automatically detects the sizes and numbers of the particles and automatically adjusts the suction power. You can also hear it ramp up even on the same surface, depending on the amount of dust it detects in a particular area.
It also shows the count of particles it detects on the LCD in real time. In my opinion, this is rather useless, but a fancy feature nonetheless.
On the other hand, the LCD also shows useful warnings for potential issues and maintenance prompts. For example, when the airways are blocked, when the filter is not secured, and things that prevents the motor to function normally and safely. It also conveniently shows you the remaining runtime which I find fairly accurate.
As I’ve pointed out earlier, most of the main attachments have integrated circuit boards and directly communicate with the main unit via these pins
All these smart features and technologies ultimately allow the Dyson V15 Detect to perform efficiently and for a longer period compared to other vacuums that can only run at maximum speed at all times.
The last and most often overlooked reason why you should get the Dyson V15 Detect is the overall convenience it provides.
First, is the amount of attachments and accessories it comes with the package. As I said earlier, we have all the necessary tools for any type of vacuuming requirement. Tight spaces, hard and flat surfaces, soft and thick carpets, hair-filled pet beds, and the like.
The angled laser on the Slim Fluffy cleaner head also contributes to the convenience factor giving you the option to use it for dark areas and tight spaces that you otherwise won’t have from other vacuums.
Almost all the main attachments are also quite flexible and can reach tight spaces at different angles.
The anti-tangle feature on the main Digital Motorbar and on the Hair Screw tool are also invaluable when it comes to cleaning up hair, strings, and crumpled dust.
The removable battery is also a very much welcomed feature, allowing you to charge the battery separately and if necessary, you can also buy another one to quickly swap between batteries for a longer runtime, especially on larger houses.
Pretty much all the main attachments including the main unit are easy to maintain, thanks to the easy-to-remove components.
All the smart features are also part of the convenience factor and not just a gimmick, well except for the particle count feature.
And most importantly, the charging dock. It is extremely convenient to just dock the vacuum and charge it at the same time. And since the Dyson V15 Detect is also aesthetically pleasing, it can count as home decor or accessory.
Now, what I like about the Dyson V15 Detect is how convenient, intelligent, and powerful it is. Honestly, the most powerful vacuum I’ve ever had especially under boost mode.
I also like the anti-tangle feature. I can’t tell you enough how annoying it is to remove strangled hairs on the brush of our robot vacuum, so having to deal with none of that with the Dyson V15 Detect is absolutely awesome.
Speaking of our robot vacuum, while it is super convenient having it do all the cleaning, sometimes, it doesn’t finish the job well compared to manually cleaning the areas you need, especially on corners and tight spaces.
It is also easier to just pick up the cordless vacuum and clean a specific area than tinkering with the mobile app of the robot vacuum.
I also like the option of having different attachments for specific tasks making cleaning more versatile and flexible.
And lastly, I like how everything can be taken apart for maintenance.
On the other hand, what I don’t like about this is that it is a dry-only vacuum. This means, I still need to rely on our robot vacuum to do some mopping jobs from time to time.
It is also fairly heavy if you’re going to use it other than on the floor.
I also would love it more if there’s an option to lock the trigger so that I can hold the vacuum in a more relaxed way, especially for longer cleaning sessions.
Other than that, easily the best vacuum I’ve ever had.
The question is, is the 50,000 price tag worth it for a vacuum? Well, yes and no. This is definitely not for everyone and has its own target market space. Yes, if you have the budget and if you treat it as a sort of long-term investment, it is a phenomenal piece of technology that can make your cleaning not just easy, but fun. No, if you don’t have the budget, and in reality, there are a ton of cheaper alternatives, might not be as good as this, but good enough for most people.
