Dread it, run from it, it doesn’t matter — no matter what you do, there comes a time in every person’s life when the prospect of buying a Dyson vacuum is not only something of interest, but is actually exciting.

The refurbished Dyson V6 Cordless Absolute vacuum is, other than a mouthful, a premium value buy for those on the “is Dyson really worth it?” fence. And this one on eBay is a whopping 68 percent off its usual price. What do all those words in its name mean? Let’s break it down.

Refurbished: Official Dyson refurbs are brought in, tested, tested again and sent out into the world for re-selling. They are marked down significantly compared to their out-of-the-box counterparts, but the brand stands behind its claim that refurbs operate at a comparable level. The only defects, the brand says, should be visual and unimportant to function (scrapes, scratches, etc.).
Dyson V6 Cordless: The V6 was the first heavy-hitting cordless vacuum for Dyson. It packs enough suction to pull tangled up hair (pet or otherwise) from think carpets and rugs and added in a HEPA filter, which removes allergens from the air in your home. It may technically be two models behind, but we’re talking about vacuums here, not smartphones. The V10 is the newest model and, while extremely powerful, is probably not worth its exorbitant price tag.
Absolute: Dyson V6s come in three package varieties — the baseline, Fluffy and Absolute. The only difference between the packages is the amount of vacuum heads that come with it, with the Absolute having the most and the baseline having the least. Each added head, which pop off and on with a button press and a pull, serves a different purpose. The Absolute package comes with a head for hardwood floors, carpets and rugs, tiny crevices, a dusting brush and more.

The cordless Dyson V6 Absolute is at the lowest price we’ve ever seen it at.
