Summary: I previously had a Rainbow - you know the water filter vacuum cleaner, and I loved it - I had it for about 20 year and it never missed a beat, but old age was getting to it and suction wasn't quite as good. All my friends have Dyson's and so I thought I'd give it a go. I can't tell you how I just love my new vacuum. Its much easier to user than my rainbow - no water to add, or gunk to dispose of, its all in one convenient easy to use package.
Summary: This vacuum is fantastic! I thought my 3 year old Wertheim was pretty good until I used the DC23 for the first time.......WOW, what a beast! We were amazed at the amount of dirt it picked up from our already visably clean floors (I had vacuumed the day before). The carpet pile stands up better now because of the motorhead and two people have asked me if we've had the carpets steam cleaned.
Summary: I am really disappointed in this machine. Heavy to pull around and the angle on the basic head does not allow it to sit flush on the floor unless your arm is down low. Very awkward. As a woman that uses a vacuum cleaner every day I cannot appreciate the heaviness of this and the awkward pull out tubing. One cannot attach a nozzle directly to the end of the hose to get into the tracks of the windows and give me my old 8 year old Dyson any day.
Summary: I already own a dyson dc 25 upright. I will keep that one upstairs. My whole upstairs except bathroom is carpeted. Downstairs is wood floors and tile. So I decided to get this refurb dyson dc 23. Having a cannister is a whole new experience. So easy to vacuum. I have to say with the upright dyson there is so much clicking out and extending the wand then trying to pull that around to go under beds , dressers, sofas, chairs, and dusting cobwebs. Just a lot of work.
Summary: I know everyone who leaves a review will either be 100% positive, which can be sickening, or completely negative. However, I have to say that the DC23 Motorhead machine is the best machine we've ever had in our home. I might say we've tried a few of both supermarket brands, and the more expensive brands and makes too.
Summary: I have used my ducted system for the past 10 years and thought it was doing an OK job. After owning a dog & cat for a few years I was getting frustrated with the pet hair and decided to listen to my friends who had dysons and buy the one with the motorised head. MY GOODNESS!! it is amazing and my carpet looks like it has been steam cleaned after every use!
Summary: I purchased the above vacuum, as I used to spend a long time vacuuming my carpet, due to having dogs. The carpet never really looked like it was vacuumed. Now I vacuum and the hair is picked up quickly. I love the motorhead.
Summary: LOVE my dyson. This is my second & it is just as awesome as my first. Yes, it is a bit heavy to carry with the motorhead on (mind you I'm just 5 foot), but the motorhead gets everything SO clean. It's easy to clean & drag around. Buy one - you won't regret it!
Summary: I had my last Dyson for 8 years. When it died I did not hesitate in getting another Dyson. I picked the DC23 because of the motorhead & because you can wrap hose up neatly for storage. I have to say that I have so far found more cons than pros. Having said that I would still recommend Dyson & most probably my next vacuum will be a Dyson. Pros: I love the motorhead. I know others have said it is too heavy & it is heavy but the cleaning power of it is fantastic.
