Excellent design, excellent funtionality

It works. Perfectly. Quiet, powerful enough on "normal" mode, easy to empty the collector, "boost" power mode is SO powerful will get anything off the floor. Easy to turn into a handheld power vac too. Very impressed. In the end i opted for a cordless, and I'm so pleased that i did. Its so easy to use and changes the way that you clean. Rather than one big vacuuming session you can clear up as you go and its actually quite enjoyable to use. I opted for the V8 Animal primarily due to the fact that it was easier to open and empty. I seem to really struggle in the shop with the V6 and just thought that it would put me off using it if i couldn't get it to function! The charge lasts enough to clean the whole house or a deep clean of the ground floor. To be honest its only run out of charge once while I've been using it. When it does run out it charges really quickly. Because it is so easy to use along with the ease of the attachments you do find yourself cleaning more, doing those jobs you've been putting off or couldn't reach. Another reason why I'm pleased that i opted for the V8, the extended running time allows you to 'just quickly do that bit' All in all I'm really pleased with it, and really pleased that all my pondering on brands and upright vs cordless paid off. Id high recommend the V8 its easy to use and empty and the attachments mean that you can clean everything from your car to garden furniture.
