Summary: I like the suction and the available options to vacuum. However, the hose is long and I find it difficult to store. I received this product without a manual so I'm not sure I know how to use it well as of yet. It's a shame because I spent btw $500-$600 on it.
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: 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. In the past this had been a problem with other cleaners. Love it.
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: 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.
