Summary: This is the most expensive vacuum I have ever bought and I can honestly say it was worth every penny. With a constantly shedding Lab it is a godsend for picking up hair from cloth furniture. I am amazed at the amount of ground in dirt it picks up!
Summary: Maybe it's just me but I can't imagine a better tool for cleaning floors at my apartment. There's cheap white carpeting in the bedroom looks like new each time Dyson takes a stab at it, there's also laminated "hard wood" floors which are pleasure to clean with this machine. One complaint I do have though, that's the canister release. When you press the button and the bottom opens all rubbish stays inside so you have to remove pieces by hand.
Summary: I am more than happy with the job this machine does but am a little disappointed at the weight of the motorhead. Another member of my family has a similiar machine (smaller Dyson) but not a motorhead and it is a lot lighter to clean with but doesn't do quite the job of the motorhead. Not sure how you could improve but less weight would be fantastic.
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: 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.
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.
