Summary: I love the lightweight model. I have dogs and this is perfect for hard floors and then simply switch heads to get a beater brush for carpets and sofas. I like having the lightness of canister and the power of the upright. Many features on this model allows for easy "unblocking" clogs of hair etc.
Summary: So very happy with our purchase of the Dyson DC23 Motorhead. This machine is the king of all vacuum cleaners :) With 5 kids (two who suffer from bad asthma) 2 cats and a dog we needed something that would thoroughly clean our carpets with minimal fuss. This machine far exceeds all expectations.
Summary: While Dyson makes a great vacuum, they really need to pay more attention to their attachments. In this case, the floor brush for the DC23 Animal Vacuum cleaner. With the power of a Dyson I should have to vacuum the same room two or three times to get up all the hair from my pets.
Summary: This machine sucks like no other !! we just came home with it and my wife won't put it down lol!! You can actually see everything getting sucked up ,stuff our other vacuum did not even come close to picking up.I was a little skeptical like how much better can it possibly be than the other brands...
Summary: So far there has been good results with performance. My only criticism for this product is the weight and ackward centre of gravity when coiled up and carrying. I hope Dyson will address this issue. If I could return and exchange for a lighter product to do the same job now, I would. BCD. 28-1-2013
Summary: I love the Dyson, and the motorhead, I cant believe how much dust it gets out of the carpet EVERY time I vaccum. The only thing I dont like is how long the filter takes to dry when you wash, it and that I cannot just buy an extra one where I bought my vacuum.
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.
Excerpt: Dyson really makes a top-quality product. This is my second Dyson--my wife and I have a full-size Animal for our downstairs, and because it's so heavy and we have an enormous staircase, it eventually became very convenient to have a separate vacuum for the second floor.
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).
