Summary: I'm delighted with my Dyson and its cleaning power. It's easy to put together and has great suction power. This is a 4 star product for me because I think there's still room for improvement. On the up side. Good attachments which store easily. Excellent switching between carpets and wooden floors - dead easy, and the real reason why I bought the model in the first place.
Good suction spoilt by flimsy plastic construction

Summary: Compared to my previous Dyson cleaner this one has a fragile feel to all the plastic parts, in particular the clear plastic dust bin. The clear carry handle is not firmly fixed to at the one end and is free move up and down. Given that this handle is also used to carry the cleaner I would have expected a more robust construction. The dustbin assembly is not such a positive fit in the cleaner body as my previous model.
Summary: I just loved my old Dyson DC01 now my new one has arrived it's more compact and sucks so hard it tries to lift the carpet off the floor, oh and it gets up dirt that has been ground into the floor...
Summary: We replaced our DC05 Absoulte (motor burned out) with this vac. We have a German Shepherd, and a 4 year old toddler. Our house is a mixture of carpets and laminate. The vac works well -- no major surprises with it works just like I would expect any new vac to perform. Not 100% sure its worth the expense though. It does perform better than our DC05 did, but then that was a 2001 model, so I would expect this.
Summary: In the last two years I have had two vacuum cleaners that were advertised as good for animal hair. These were well known brands but they failed to do the job. The Dyson works brilliantly. I vacuumed 4 rooms, stairs and halls in 20 minutes with not a trace of hair to be found afterwards. I have two dogs and a cat who shed a lot. I would definitely recommend this machine if hair removal is your top priority.
Summary: This vacumn cleaner is very efficient and compact, although it took a little while to work out how everything fitted. The extendable arm is great although a bit chunky and on the heavy side when raised above shoulder level. Would recommend to anyone.
Excerpt: I have had one of these for over a year now and think it's absolutely fantastic. The tube wraps around the machine making it really small to store . The pole is extendable and shrinks to fit. The tools are all kept on board so you don't have to go back and look for them, and it even sits on the stairs as you pull the hoover up. The suction is great as with all Dysons, I have over filled it a couple of times and it stills sucks fine.
Summary: We wanted a good vacuum cleaner that could handle fur from our bunny who is running around our apartment 24/7. What was also important that it could handle little hay bits. The Dyson DC23 does everything perfect and gets all fur and hay out of the carpet. Also the attachment for the sofa was super, it got all the fur of my cushions in no time. Couldn't be more impressed! If you have bunnies wandering around in your home then this vacuum cleaner is perfect for you!

Summary: My advice if you are looking for a new vacuum cleaner is to go to the Dyson website and tell them about your needs and then you will be recommended which model best suites you. The website recommended this model for us. We bought it from Amazon becuase it was the cheapest we could find. I never understood why my moms house was always so much cleaner than mine. I don't have a lot of time for cleaning but I would always do my best.
