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. It is quite heavy at first and costly compared to some other brands but the performance outweighs any objection to the price or how heavy it is.
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. This is the pet edition after all. The suction power is there, but the spin brush fails in a big way.
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 ?all my concerns have been put to rest !the Dyson costs more but it's worth every penny ! Remember happy wife happy life!
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.
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. 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.
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. We have two dogs and two cats, so suction power is important, and this gets the job done.
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.
