'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Looking for a deal on a Dyson? The V8 Motorhead cordless stick vacuum is $50 off

Any day that a Dyson drops in price is a great day, and you can save $50 on this cordless vacuum at Target.
Written by Rebecca Isaacs, Staff Writer on

Dyson vacuums are arguably some of the greatest cordless vacuums to date, but their price can make any homeowner or apartment dweller think twice about the investment. With some retailers still offering, Target wants to make sure you save some money when you decide to spring for a Dyson deal. Right now, the Dyson V8 Motorhead Origin Cordless Stick Vacuum is discounted by $50 on their website for $379.

You'll get up to 40 minutes of runtime with this handy vacuum which is perfect for smaller apartments. The suction is perfect for picking up pet hair and works across all kinds of surfaces, from wood floors to carpeting.

It also breaks down to store easily in a drawer or a closet, which also works really well if you need to clean up a car or upholstery. What also works great are the two separate vacuum heads that come with it, one specifically designed for said upholstery and the other designed for floors. There's also no bag built into this vacuum. Simply pop open the dust bin when it's full and empty it into the trash bag for easy cleanup. 

Unfortunately, you can't pick it up in-store, but you can get it shipped to your home. With the Target Red Card, you can save an additional 5% on your purchase, too. Dyson stock is notoriously limited, so if this deal sounds like it would be perfect for your home, we recommend buying as soon as possible for $379.
