Summary: This is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever bought. When you think the carpet looks clean, give it a vacuum anyway you will be sure to fill the barrel at least once. I can't believe how much dirt it picks up. The only fault I have found is that you have to empty the barrel so often, but this could be because my house wasn't lived in for five years before I bought it.
Summary: This is a vacuum that is beyond words! I am OCD! I received mine today. I was shocked! I was concerned how it would work on carpet. Wow! My refurbished Royal doesn't compare! This is the vacuum that can get EVERYTHING Done!!!! From carpets, hardwood floors, and tile. Not to mention cleaning blinds!!! Seriously!........I am very impressed! Plus it has a handle on the canister that makes it to where you can tote it around instead of dragging it around!
Summary: Bought this model because we have a large two story house with seven bedrooms and three lounges and my wife has allergies. It cleans in the areas you can access with it but the head and machine are two big and bulky to clean properly around furniture. My wife won't use it she says it is too heavy and hard to move. Overall a waste of money.
Summary: I was looking for a vacuum that was easy to carry for stairs and take outside for car cleaning, powerful enough to clean pet hair and all that dirt trekked in from mountain hiking, camping or day in the woodshop, and small enough to get dust bunnies underneath furniture I can't move due to limited apartment space (tall order), and equally good on hardwood floors. Oh, and doesn't shoot out dust like most vacuums do...
Summary: I had used one of these before I bought mine, and I absolutely love it! If you think you have clean carpets, think again, you'll be amazed at what the Dyson will pick up. I love that I can see the dirt in the barrel and I know it's doing the job. Great for picking up animal hair. A durable, well built machine and well designed with the stowaway feature and a place for the motor head, all nice and compact. Extremely happy with my purchase!!!
Summary: Having had previous vacuum cleaners, Dyson machines are far superior. You never have to go over the same piece of carpet twice and unlike others, when you round a corner the machine doesn't fall over....
Summary: I bought this on a friend recommendation and I must say it has exceeded all of my expectations. I have since bought the handheld dyson as well and together they are great for a larger house with three kids under 5! It does all it promises and more. I am always horrified at the amount of yukky stuff that comes out of the floor and carpet every time you vacuum and you are left with a feeling that it is clean.
Summary: This is improvement over its predecessor (e.g., greater suction, ease of emptying the bin) but is still not worth the very high sticker price. It's difficult to manoeuvre around corners and the flexible hose tends to kink. The on/off button is awkwardly sited. I regret having bought this but my old machine was worn out to the point of uselessness. The DC23 does not live up to the Dyson reputation and is generally a disappointment.
Summary: Very good on carpets , cleans deep into the pile . Hard floor head is ok , needs some fine tuning. Perhaps broader , flatter head with a few more spaces between the brush strip . And the ability to retract the brush strip. Hose gets twisted easily , I understand the power to the power head runs through the hose. Maybe a swivel joint in the hose some how may rectify this issue. The machine is quite heavy could be difficult for some people to move about.
