DYSON V11 ABSOLUTE PRO: A PRO CORDLESS VACUUM CLEANER

Technology is making our day-to-day life easy. The latest home addition that is making home cleaning easy and way more comfortable is Dyson V11 Absolute Pro. For someone who has used the cordless Dyson vacuum cleaner throughout lockdown, I was very excited when I got my hands on the V11. Let’s find below my experience with it.

DESIGN

Design-wise Dyson as a brand has aced the art. Be that any appliance, they all look so premium and nothing like the usual. The V11 does have the same cues as its predecessors. Like the V10, it looks futuristic. In comparison to the V10, the new Dyson V11 Absolute Pro features a plasma-blaster like in-line configuration module which consists of the bin, motor, and cyclone array. All these parts are aligned in a straight line to ensure even more powerful suction over an obstructed or diverted airflow.

The bin is 40% bigger than before so you can collect more dirt in one go. The latch for the trash is in the front. The high point on the design is the display on top of the barrel. It is very well placed to have a proper look at the animations. The display itself is bright and colourful, and with crisp images that shows real-time information of the remaining battery run time in three different modes – eco, auto, and boost.

Additionally, it displays maintenance alerts like filter cleaning reminder, airway blockage alert, and a visual demo of how to unblock the airway. There’s also a button at the bottom of the LCD to switch between the three power modes.

The additions on the cleaner are all made of good material, each attachment feels premium and oozes out perfection. The best part about V11 is that even if you want to place it up in your living area it doesn’t interrupt the aesthetics of the room.

FEATURES

Dyson V11 Absolute Pro is extremely rich in features. The most important thing when we use a cordless vacuum cleaner is its battery life. We can’t be left mid-way through our cleaning. To resolve this issue, V11 comes in three different modes. Eco mode is the first choice for long-duration cleaning. It might not be as effective as the Boost mode whose job is to suck out all dirt quickly but then it eats up the battery also faster. The Auto mode uses the in-built sensors on the High Torque cleaner head to detect brush resistance, allowing V11 to change the suction power to suit carpets or hard floors in real-time. The cleaner head uses DLS (Dynamic Load Sensing) to sense the brush resistance up to 360 times a second, which is then communicated to the motor and battery microprocessors. The Eco mode is the best for those who have kids at home and don’t want their vacuum to make any noise at all.

PERFORMACE

V11 gets a 20% more powerful digital motor than before. The motor has a triple diffuser which reduces noise. The display works well in helping the user know at all times what is happening on the equipment. The airway blockage alert is also helpful and comes in handy.

The advance technology used in the Dyson V11 Absolute Pro helps keep your house clean and pick up the minutest dirt particles. It is an extremely helpful device for people like me who suffer from dirt allergies. It helps clean areas and parts that you can’t do via the traditional cleaning method. The added brushes and parts help reach every corner of your house, bed, sofa, and carpet.

BATTERY

The Dyson V11 Absolute Pro comes with a 7-cell nickel-cobalt-aluminium battery. It’s 20% bigger than the predecessor and has been upgraded to be controlled with a dedicated microprocessor. The microprocessor judges the surface and optimises the amount of power needed depending on the usage.

Charging the V11 from dead to full charge took over four and a half hours. Using it on Eco mode and using Boost mode a couple of times gave me 40 minutes of vacuum time in the house. If you vacuum your house every day and not use Boost mode, then you can use it for up to 50 minutes.

VERDICT

Dyson V11 Absolute Pro is undoubtedly the best cordless vacuum cleaner that you can find for yourself in the market. It might not look too different from the V10 but has some great additions, especially with the modes, the larger bin, and battery life. You get yourself a display that constantly tells you what is to be done which is great. It does feel a little heavy and cleaning your whole house with it might turn out to be a bit tiresome. The only hitch for someone would be the cost of the product. Costing over Rs 50,000 would be a point of concern for a few. Rest there is nothing that you wouldn’t like about the product. Dyson V11 Absolute pro is a real pro cordless vacuum cleaner.

THE ASUS ZENBOOK DUO IS A PERFECT FIT FOR MULTITASKERS

Staying and working at home for a whole year has led to a lot of new technology aimed at creating a better work-life balance. Asus’s latest entry is a similar gadget, made for creative people and multitaskers. The ZenBook Duo, as the name suggests, is a dual screen laptop and is the most functional thing I have seen recently. After spending some time with it and using it as my primary work laptop, here is what I think.

The first impression it made on me was by how light it is. At 1.6 kg, the device is pretty impressive. The design and form are sleek and compact, and it is easy to hold and pack. The box came with a leather bag too, and the laptop slips into it very well. However, the top of the laptop is prone to fingerprints which might irk a few.

On opening it, it reveals itself as a beauty. The dual screen is designed and placed so well that I was awestruck for a second. It comes with a thin, attractive bezel. There is a plastic keyboard with a large touchpad towards the right. It does take a lot of space but even though the keyboard is a bit cramped, it is not uncomfortable to use. There are also USB type A and memory card slots on the side.

Working from home means you need to multitask and this laptop is perfect for that. The highlight in this regard is, of course, the dual screen. Both screens are touch-enabled which makes work even easier. The 14-inch anti-glare screen is bright with great output and sharp visual quality. The touch feature is seamless, making drag and drop and other multi usages very smooth. The smaller screen is just as interactive. You can drag and drop between the two screens easily. If you are recording something, you can use the bottom screen for notes and other functions. The second screen is tilted upwards which makes things more convenient. You can also customize your screens and apps as per your liking. There is also a shortcut key on the keyboard for adjusting the screen settings.

For Zoom meetings and recordings, you get a decent in-built webcam which gives an above average output. You don’t get a privacy shield though. The mic is decent too, so you get clear audio output. Overall, the device gets a thumbs-up for online recording purposes.

The inbuilt speakers are good and strategically placed for better audio quality.

It also comes with a stylus, which can be of great use to some professionals.

As mentioned earlier, the laptop is great for multitasking and the response rate makes it even better. The laptop works effortlessly while using multiple apps together. There is no lag or wait time.

Graphics might not be the best in its class but surely good enough for many. It is still a great device for gamers, designers, video editors and music composers.

Good battery life is a must for such a multipurpose device. I found that the laptop had 8-9 hours of battery life with excessive usage, which works well for me but might be a low point for gamers.

The ASUS ZenBook Duo, priced at Rs 99,990 and Rs 1,34,990, is a great pick for all multitaskers. If you want a good laptop with a great dual screen, this device must be among the ones you consider.

HYUNDAI PROMISES A ROYAL RIDE WITH THE ALCAZAR SUV

Published

on

Korean carmaker Hyundai has been at its aggressive best in the market in the last one year despite the pandemic. Starting with the new generation Creta to the new generation of the premium hatch i20, new cars from the brand have been hitting the Indian roads thick and fast. Now India’s second largest carmaker is getting ready to launch a brand new 3-row SUV in the market. The Alcazar will soon be revealed to the world after which the launch will take place but before all of that happens, the company has shared some crucial details about the SUV which in a sense is a 6/7-seater version of the hugely successful Creta. Hyundai says the Alcazar harmonises space, premiumness, performance, convenience, safety, and technology.

LOOKS

The face of the car is pretty much like the Creta with similar looking LED headlamps and bumper. However, the big change is the grille that will help you differentiate the SUV from its sibling when viewed from the front. Importantly the car’s wheelbase is 150 mm more than the Creta which means you can expect generous space in the cabin, even on the third row. Hyundai has still not shared the dimensions of the car but even the rear overhang looks bigger than the Creta. The rear is completely new be it the D-pillar, the new LED tail lamps, and the redesigned bumper. Hyundai says the design is based on the company’s global design identity of sensuous sportiness, giving the car a unique look.

INTERIOR

According to Hyundai, with the Alcazar, the idea was to create a 6- and 7-seater premium SUV that resonates the grandeur and magnificence of palaces & castles. Going with that theme the interiors feature a wing-surrounded architecture that personifies spaciousness, comfort, and modern in-car experiences. According to the brand, the car gets 1st in Segment second row console armrest to provide premium feel and enhanced comfort. The wheelbase is claimed to be the best in segment and sliding seats offer versatile leg room with seats designed for superior thigh and lateral support. You can expect a long list of premium features seen on the Creta and then some more on the Alcazar. These include a panoramic sunroof, a big touch screen system, wireless charger, air purifier and a host of connectivity options. The second row will get the option of either 2 captain seats or a bench seat.

ENGINE

The Hyundai Alcazar will come with both Petrol & Diesel engine options and both will get manual as well as Automatic transmissions. The 2.0 litre Petrol churns out 159 PS while the 1.5 litre Diesel makes a maximum power of 115 PS. According to Hyundai the 6-speed manual on the Petrol offers acceleration of 0 – 100 km/h in under 10 seconds. The 6-Speed Automatic Transmission is a torque converter which means the Alcazar will not get a Dual Clutch Auto or a turbo Petrol engine option. While Hyundai has not shared the exact figures till now it claims that the Diesel will offer best in segment fuel efficiency with both 6MT & 6AT. It says that the Final Gear Ratio (FGR) of 6-Speed Manual Transmission on Diesel has been optimized for superior performance. It also features superior shift quality using triple cone synchro and TGS (Transmission Gear Shift) lever stopper.

RIDE & HANDLING

I still have to drive the car but if Hyundai is to be believed the Alcazar will offer a premium ride-feel for all row occupants, featuring hydraulic rebound stopper in front strut for better rebound control and a plush ride experience. Its drive mode selection features different steering effort mapping for Eco, City and Sport modes. It says a full course of durability testing has been conducted across hilly terrains, rural and highway roads in hot & dry conditions. Hyundai says a ring structure design in the engine room, B-Pillar and D-Pillar increase rigidity for enhanced handling and stability.

SAFETY

The Alcazar’s body uses 75.6 % Advanced and High-Strength Steel, which makes it a sturdy car. Its underbody has been designed to absorb and disperse impact energy. Application of hot stamping parts for frontal crash energy flow and strengthened connectivity for side impact strength has also helped in that aspect. There is quite a bit of competition waiting for the Alcazar in the market that includes the MG Hector Plus, the recently launched Tata Safari and the soon to be launched Mahindra XUV 700 which essentially is the new generation of the XUV 500. It is going to be an interesting battle up ahead.
