The first few Dibea cordless vacuums I tested were pretty decent.
But you will not mistake those vacuums for a Dyson.
Quality, power and finish isn’t up to par plus those variants didn’t have as much tools as Dyson has.
However the gap is closing with the release of the Dibea D008 Pro.

This variant has more power, tools, quality and overall versatility than any of the other Dibea cordless vacuums to date.
We’ll be looking closely at these features in this review and why this Dibea is worth the $200 or so price tag.
A quick look at the features…

What to expect from the Dibea D008 Pro?
This is more of a makeover with improvements not just with the aesthetic but with performance and usability.
If you look closely at this variant, it has more tools, power and versatility. It represents a huge leap and the gap between this and the Dyson is rapidly closing.
The big questions is, is it worth the $200 price tag?
Before anything else, please watch this video where I show you the features, tools and performance test.
What’s inside the box?
Out of the box, you’ll get 5 tools that make this one of the more versatile cordless vacuums options available right now.
Check out the image below to see what you’ll get…
It actually comes with four tools plus an extendable and flexible hose that increases reach.
Here’s a close look at the combination tool…
You can use the combination tool to clean dust from keyboards or vents or as an upholstery tool. Length is almost the same as a Dyson V6 combination tool.
A close look at the mini turbo brush…
Design of the Dibea mini turbo brush is similar to the one found in the Dyson V6 Mattress. You can use this to clean fabric upholstery or mattresses.
Here’s a close look at the upholstery/brush tool…
This tool is something that you’ll not find in a Dyson. It’s a combination brush and upholstery tool. The brush part is great for cleaning dust while the felt-like nature at the middle makes it ideal for cleaning upholstery inside your home or vehicle.
The build quality of these tools is actually pretty good and is getting close to Dyson but it’s not up to par if that makes sense.
Here’s a close look at the hose attachment with one of the tools on…
One of my pet peeves would be the hose attachment. Quality isn’t bad per se but the release button at the front unlocks a bit too easy. You’ll find yourself constantly reattaching the tool back.
It’s really not a big deal but it can be annoying.
Like the Dyson V8 and V10, the Dibea D008 Pro also comes with the same trigger switch. But the difference is, Dibea’s switch will stay on when you let go of it while the Dyson shuts off.
Another difference would be the max mode switch. After the V6, Dyson has changed theirs to a slide switch that’s easier to use.
Dibea’s max switch in this variant is a button located on top.
The exhaust also is located on top so instead of hot air blowing on your face, it blows upwards away from it.
Main cleaning head
One of the biggest improvements with this variant is the main cleaning head.
It’s wider and now uses the soft roller bar which was first seen in the Dyson V6.
This design works best on bare floor but in my cleaning tests, it isn’t too shabby on carpet either.
Dibea says that their soft roller bar has a “needle bar” design that can deep clean.
In reality however, this isn’t the case. This tool will only pickup surface dirt and will not deep clean carpet.
Under the hood, this cordless vacuum has a one piece brushless motor that is more efficient and will last longer. This motor will spin at around 80,000 rpm.
Dibea says that the motor produces has around 200 watts of power. There are two modes – normal and max mode.
This variant comes with a 2,200mAh lithium ion battery that’s built-in the vacuum itself. So you don’t have the option of buying an extra battery to be able to use this vacuum while the other battery is still charging.
According to Dibea run time in normal mode is 30 minutes and in max mode, around 15 minutes.
It will take between 4 to 5 hours to fully charge.
This vacuum comes with a three stage filtration system that will help keep the filter cleaner for a longer period meaning you don’t have to clean it as often.
First stage is the cyclone separation system that keeps dirt and dust from seeping through the mesh filter and away from the main cotton filter on top.
The main filter isn’t a HEPA filter so if you have allergies, you may want to opt for something like a Dyson V7 that has a HEPA filter. It isn’t as versatile but it performs great.
Bare floor cleaning
To see how this vacuum performs on bare floor please go back and watch the video above if you have not.
The soft roller bar will work best on bare floor. It can clean fine to larger sized debris from dust to cheerios because of the clearance that it has.
This tool isn’t original to Dibea. In fact it was Dyson who was the first to introduce this type of tool and now manufacturers have copied the concept.
If you have homes with lots of bare floor like hardwood, tile or linoleum, this is a no-brainer option.
Since my home does not have carpet, I used a low pile rug to simulate how this vacuum performs on it.
It did pick up most of the surface dirt on the rug I tested it on but it did not do well in terms of deep cleaning.
The soft roller attachment isn’t meant to deep clean carpet. So don’t expect this to replace an upright for that purpose.
If you’re looking for a cordless vacuum to clean carpet, a better option would be the Dyson V7 with the bristled direct drive tool that works better for that task.
This vacuum also comes with a mini-turbo brush that enables it to clean upholstery like sofa and mattresses.
The bristle on this tool isn’t very stiff so it won’t deep clean as well.
But it does gives it more value for the money and an option to clean these areas in your home and vehicle.
Dibea backs this up with a 1 year warranty.
Where can I buy this?
You can buy this cordless vacuum from Dibea for less than $180. Please check the links below for the latest prices.
- Love Red (EU Plug) – $174.66
You can also opt for the more powerful Dibea V008 Pro which has the same feature but with a more powerful motor. Again, please check the link below for the latest price.
- White (EU Plug) – $189.99
To wrap up
The Dibea D008 Pro is a great option if you’re looking for a cordless vacuum capable of cleaning your home that has hardwood, linoleum or tile that costs under $200.
It has enough tools to clean not just floors but also upholstery, vents and everything in between.
You can even use this inside your vehicle thanks to the flexible hose that allows it to reach even the tightest nooks and crannies.
However, it lacks a bristle brush attachment that would have made this usable on carpet. It is a capable vacuum on carpet but don’t expect it to deep clean as it can only pick up surface dirt.
Overall this product is a step in the right direction for Dibea. It has a powerful motor, very good build quality and cleaning performance at a price that won’t break the bank.
