Summary

Dyson V11 is the latest iteration of the company's iconic cordless, bagless stick vacuum cleaner. It features 14 concentric cyclones that generate forces of 79000g to throw dust into the collector. A new, in-line air-flow configuration optimizes the path of air, helping to create higher suction at the head.

The V11 Outsize has a few features that are physically larger. The bigger features mainly include the wider cleaning head and larger dust bin capacity. The main issue we documented was excessive suction on high pile carpet. On hardwoods, the performance was exceptional. It captured all debris types and had an average performance of 99%.

Reviewers from moderncastle have found the following[***]:
The Dyson V11 Torque Drive is a breeze to use and setup. A full charge takes about 4.5 hours with a completely drained battery. The V11 has advanced technology that allows it to automatically adjust suction based on floor type. On low carpets, the cleaning performance was virtually flawless, collecting 100% of debris.

  • Easy to use

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
If you want a cordless vacuum that runs like a corded upright, the Dyson V11 Outsize is a great choice. It has a full-size bin, large brush, and plenty of power to take on most cleaning tasks. The suction is powerful and really hard to beat and the battery life is pretty good.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful suction
  • Good battery life
  • Easy to empty bin
Cons[**]
  • Doesn’t have self-cleaning filters

Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Dyson V11 Animal is great for bare floors. It does an excellent and consistent job of picking up pet hair as well as small and large debris, and performance remains consistent as its dirt compartment fills up. Although its build quality is just okay, as its plastic components seem a bit fragile, it's fairly easy to maintain.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent and consistent performance
  • Great performance on all surface types
  • Outstanding pet hair pick-up
  • Very portable
  • Well-suited for stairs
Cons[**]
  • Basticky body seems a bit fragile
  • Poor build quality

Sentiment Score[*] 94%
Reviewers from t3 have found the following[***]:
The Dyson v11 Absolute is an excellent all-rounder for both carpets and hard floors. It excels in all disciplines, has excellent battery life, is a doddle to use and it's not too heavy in the hand. Yes, the price is high on the high side, but the cordless stick vac packs a major punch.

Pros[**]
  • Superb suction power
  • Excellent dust and hair removal
  • Great for carpets and hard floors
Cons[**]
  • No aftermarket spares

techadvisor[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 69%
Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The V11 feels like an iterative update in terms of pure power, but a more substantial one when it comes to user experience. The screen offers a live reminder of the battery impact of Boost, helping you plan your cleaning better. On max power the V10 was fast enough to match most corded vacuums, and so is the V11. In our testing it's comfortably handled everything from dust to clumps of hair, on both hardwood and carpet, with relative ease.

Pros[**]
  • More powerful than the V10
  • Powerful motorised head
Cons[**]
  • Battery life could be better
  • No trigger lock

techadvisor[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 64%
Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The Outsize is a very good vacuum cleaner. But if you already have the V11, don't buy it with the mistaken impression that you're upgrading to the latest Dyson tech. The Outsize's dustbin and filter are well designed: easy to remove, washable and lacking any corners and crevices. The filter will remove 99.7% of particles as small as 0.3 microns.

Pros[**]
  • Very good dustbin and filter
  • Easy to use
  • Large bin and cleaning head
Cons[**]
  • Trigger can be a pain to hold down

techradar[8]

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Dyson V11 looks very similar to its predecessor the V10, with a sleek futuristic design that isn't an eyesore if you forget to stow it away in the cupboard. The biggest change to the design of the new V-series vacuum is the inclusion of an LCD display that shows the current mode of the vacuum, the estimated battery life and any other warnings that might be relevant. The V11 has the same 0.2 gallon (0.75 litre) bin capacity as its predecessor, which was 40% bigger than the V8.

Pros[**]
  • Improved suction power
  • Improved cyclone performance
  • Improved battery life
Cons[**]
  • No LCD display
  • No soft roller head

techradar[9]

Sentiment Score[*] 88%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Dyson V11 Absolute is one of the priciest cordless vacuums on the market. It has an LCD screen that tells you how much time you have left in the selected cleaning mode and alerts you to blockages. Bin emptying is as easy as it appears, with all the dirt and debris coming out without the need to poke around and dirty your fingers.
Find the original article here.
Pros[**]
  • Powerful suction
  • Easy to empty bin
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Not as powerful as V10 models

techradar[10]

Sentiment Score[*] 84%
Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Dyson V11 Outsize is heavier than all other Dyson handsticks that have come before it. For general use, this won't be much of a problem, as the attached tube and cleaning head help offset and balance the unit's weight. However, you will likely feel a fair bit of strain whenever you don't have something to rest on – especially if you have to aim the vacuum towards high corners of your home.

Pros[**]
  • Supercharged Hyperdymium motor
  • Excellent maneuverability
  • Superb battery life
Cons[**]
  • Slightly heavier than other Dyson handsticks

trustedreviews[11]

Sentiment Score[*] 87%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
Dyson V11 Animal has the older motorised head. To clean the brush, you simply insert a coin into the slot and turn, then pull out the unit for cleaning. For hard floors, there’s the Soft Roller head, which picks up small particles easily. The battery is designed to last for an hour in Eco mode, operating with or without a motorised brush. With around an hour of run-time, you should have enough power to whizz round an entire house.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful motorised heads
  • Easy to use
  • Excellent battery life
Cons[**]
  • Battery life could be better

trustedreviews[12]

Sentiment Score[*] 83%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
On Eco, the V11 will run for an hour, but this drops to around 12 minutes on Boost. The combination of power and tool efficiency means that the vacuum cleans brilliantly at lower power levels. It has the power and intelligence to tackle the largest of homes, with its Auto power mode balancing performance and battery life perfectly. With the larger floor head you can tackle what you can do on a single charge.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful power
  • Powerful cleaning
  • Easy to use
Cons[**]
  • No anti-tangle heads

wired[13]

Sentiment Score[*] 85%
Reviewers from wired have found the following[***]:
This year, Dyson's engineers tweaked the motor's design. The motor still runs at a mind-blowing 125,000 rpm. The V11's cleaner head also has a dynamic load sensor. It's impossible to talk about the V11 without mentioning its extravagant price.

Pros[**]
  • Great suction power
  • Large, 0.2-gallon dust bin
  • Easy to use
Cons[**]
  • Doesn't have a run time counter
