The Dyson Outsize Absolute+ is an outstanding vacuum cleaner that reviewers praised because of its long runtime, large dirt bin, and wide range of tools. However, they were not impressed with how it cleaned high pile carpets and felt its build quality could’ve been better.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Dyson Outsize Absolute+ vacuum cleaner is a premium pick that was first announced in 2021. The cordless stick vacuum has a huge 1.5-liter dirt compartment, which is larger than some of the top vacuum cleaners on the market.

It also has an impressive battery life, averaging almost 2 hours at its highest setting, and this is a lot longer than the Dyson Omni-Glide, which has a runtime of only 20 minutes.

The Absolute+ also ships with a wide variety of tools and is equipped with a washable HEPA filter to get rid of allergens. With a noise output of only 68.4 decibels, the Absolute+ is slightly more quiet compared to the Dyson V7 Animal, which has a noise rating of 70.5 decibels.

It ships with a wide range of cleaning attachments, including a hair screw tool, a crevice tool, a stubborn dirt brush, and a soft dusting brush.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Dyson Outsize Absolute+ had reviewers pretty happy about how well it could pick up 100% of large and small debris from bare floors and 87% of debris from low pile carpet.

Experts from Digital Trends were delighted with how long it lasted during their tests, as they could keep cleaning for up to two hours non-stop. They also liked that it had a large 1.5-liter dirt compartment.

Critics from Modern Castle were quite pleased that it included two cleaner heads that are used based on the type of surface being cleaned. They also liked that it had three cleaning modes and that it was not expensive to maintain since it comes with a washable HEPA filter.

Unfortunately, testers were disappointed by the Absolute+’s performance on high pile carpet. They also complained that its build quality was not as good as they expected.

Reason to Buy

  • Outstanding runtime
  • Large dirt bin
  • Has a HEPA filter
  • Low noise output
  • Includes many cleaning tools

Reason to Avoid

  • Not great for high pile carpets
  • Mediocre build quality
