The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is an overall great cordless stick/handheld vacuum. It's suitable for a variety of different jobs, as it can easily configure into a handheld model to access more difficult-to-reach areas such as the inside of your car, and it also comes with a wide variety of specialized tools and brushes, such as a 180-degree extension tool. It's able to clean up all kinds of debris on bare floors without too much of a problem, and it also does a great job on low as well as high-pile carpet, although it struggles a bit more to pick up small and large debris from carpeted surfaces. However, it has a plasticky build quality that doesn't feel very sturdy. Its hose range can also be a little limiting for some cleaning uses as it's quite short.

However, it has a mediocre build quality and there are several parts that need to be regularly maintained. On the upside, there are no virtually recurring costs as long as you properly maintain it.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is good for high-pile carpet. While it struggles a bit more with small and large debris on this surface type, it easily cleans up all pet hair without a problem. On the downside, it has a mediocre build quality and doesn't really feel all that sturdy. It also has a lot of ongoing maintenance needs but as long as you properly take care of the vacuum, it has virtually no recurring costs.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is exceptional for pets. It can clean up pet hair from all surface types with little problem and its handheld configuration makes it easy to clean pet beds. Although its build quality is quite mediocre and a lot of its parts need ongoing maintenance, it has a clip-on design so you can quickly add or remove parts. This vacuum also has virtually no recurring costs, which is nice.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is great for stairs. This lightweight, cordless vacuum can easily go up and down stairs, and although its hose has a short reach, you can always configure the vacuum into a handheld mode if you want a closer clean. It does an overall outstanding job on bare floors and it's great on carpets too. However, its build quality doesn't seem the most sturdy and parts could crack if dropped.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is impressive for cars. Thanks to its handheld configuration and wide assortment of tools and brushes, you can reach difficult-to-reach corners and clean stuck-on dirt without too much of a fuss. It can pick up pet hair as well as most small and large debris from low-pile carpets.

The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute has only okay build quality. Just like the Dyson V8 Animal and Dyson V7 Animal, it has a mostly plastic build with a colorful, lightweight metal wand. However, it isn't the most sturdy-feeling, and its plastic dirt compartment especially feels like it could crack if dropped. That being said, everything is easy and intuitive to clip together, even if there are a lot of parts.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is mediocre to maintain. While it's designed to make maintenance easy, there's a lot of parts that need regular cleaning. Take a look at the JASHEN V16 if you want a stick/handheld vacuum with fewer parts that need to be taken care of.
Any part washed with water needs to air dry for 24 hours before using it again.
Just like most other Dysons, this vacuum has virtually no recurring costs, which is outstanding. The filter is expected to last the lifetime of the vacuum as long as it's maintained. However, if any parts break or need replacing, you can purchase them directly from Dyson's website.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is okay to store. It has a rack station, which holds up your vacuum when not in use. It also allows you to store up to two tools directly on the station. The vacuum itself can't hold any extra tools.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute's dirt compartment is okay. It's larger than that of the Dyson V8 Animal, but it still fairly small and needs frequent emptying. Luckily, there's an indicator which lets you know when the compartment's full.
While the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is cordless and has an unlimited range, its hose length is quite short, which can be a bit of a pain if you need a longer reach.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute has great portability. It's lighter than the Dyson V11 Animal and it doesn't feel very heavy in your hand. It also has a carrying handle, which makes it easier to bring with you to different rooms.
This vacuum's battery performance is decent. On 'Suction 1' mode and with the main power head attached to the wand, its battery can last just over an hour. However, if you have a more difficult mess to clean, you need to do it quickly, as with 'BOOST' mode, the battery lasts less than 10 minutes without the wand or any power tools attached. Luckily, there are three LED lights on the vacuum's body that let you know when your battery is running low.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute has a few extra features. It has three power modes that change its suction: 'Suction 1', which has the longest battery life, 'Suction 2', which is a balanced mode to clean bare floors and carpets, and 'BOOST' mode, which is for intensive ground-in dirt cleaning. There's also a filter light as well as a blockage light indicator.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute comes with a lot of tools that easily clip onto the wand, hose, or vacuum. The hard bristle brush can retract to become the upholstery brush while the flexible crevice tool can extend and connect to the small dusting brush. There's also a harder bristle brush for stubborn dirt as well as a 180-degree extension cleaner, which can help you clean high-up places.
You can use this vacuum as either a sick vacuum or in its handheld mode by detaching the wand.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute has an outstanding performance on bare floors. It can pick up pet hair as well as small debris easily. However, while it can clean up large debris, some debris can get stuck at the entry point near the head, especially when using the soft brush roll head. It should also be noted that this issue also happens with the motorized brush roll, but less frequently.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is excellent on low-pile carpet. It's able to easily pick up pet hair and most small and large debris. It also performs consistency regardless of how much debris is in its dirt compartment.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute is great on high-pile carpet. Just like on low-carpet, it's able to pick up all pet hair. However, it struggles a lot more with small and large debris and it may take you several passes to fully clean an area.
This vacuum has good maneuverability. Thanks to its lightweight design and plastic wheels, it can easily move around the room with little problem. However, since there's no tool storage on-board, you need to make sure you have the brush you want to use on hand. When cleaning under a couch or table, the filter can get in the way if you're not crouched and can hit your wrist. The vacuum can also get stuck on a rug tassel, even on a lower setting, but you shouldn't have too much of a problem on thicker rugs or cables.
The Dyson Cyclone V10 also comes in several other variants with a different amount of brushes and tools included. They also have different wand colors, but we expect our results to be valid for the other color variants as well.

When compared to similar Dyson vacuums such as the Dyson V7 or the Dyson V11 Animal, it has generally similar performance on all surface types, although it tends to do just a bit better on bare floors. However, it lacks any on-board storage for its tools and it requires more ongoing maintenance than other Dysons, which is a bit of a shame.
The Dyson V11 Animal and the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute are two stick/handheld vacuums with different purposes. The V11 Animal is more specifically designed for cleaning pet hair. However, the Cyclone V10 Absolute can also pick up pet hair and it's better at cleaning this kind of debris on all surfaces than the V11 Animal.

The Dyson easily picks up more pet hair as well as small and large debris from low to high-pile carpet. It's lighter, its dirt compartment is slightly larger, and it has virtually no recurring costs. It also comes with a lot more tools and brushes than the Shark. However, the Shark is better at cleaning bare floors, it feels better built, and it's easier to maintain.

The JASHEN, meanwhile, is a little bit lighter and has fewer parts that require regular maintenance.
