The amount of "stuff" that came out of our carpets was astonishing.

This model does not allow for thickness adjustment so it's either carpet or hard surface...no options in between.

I loved it so much when I saw the DC17 on sale, I bought not one but TWO.

HOLY COW is all I could say after using it for the first time. The amount of "stuff" that came out of our carpets was astonishing. I also feel like I got a great deal on it, on sale for $299 at best buy. That was about the maximum of my price threshold having never seen one in action. Well let me tell you at $499 it would have been a good deal based on how much suction power this thing has. I feel so fortunate to have gotten one for such a good price.

After reading some reviews and product comparisons I decided on the DC17. We needed a new vacuum as our old one was around 8 years old and a lately it seemed to suck at sucking. We have 2 kids and a Labrador Retriever who are constantly tracking dirt and such into the house as well as the animal hair and dander...OMG the amount of hair and dander was astonishing...the carpets after one vacuuming were noticeably cleaner and looked to my wife and I as if they had been steam cleaned.

The only problem with getting this vacuum is that we are now aware of the filth that was residing unseen in our carpets for all those years and the shame that accompanies it is almost unbearable...but persevere we must!!

One note that I read elsewhere and again in the documentation was not to use carpet fresh powder or things like it.

I have always preferred canister vacuums but when my rainbow gave out after 20+ years, I thought I'd try this one, especially since it has 5 stars and I like the bagless concept. It has amazing suction and seems well made but that's about all I can say for it. Actually, the suction power is way over kill. It's great for carpet and fairly thick rugs. It does well on hardwood floors with the brush turned off. However, the suction is too powerful for thin area rugs (i.e. my 8 x 10 jute rug)and it does not clean well on these with the brush turned off. Also I have a couple of flat big dog beds which I have always vacuumed fine wiht the canister rug attachment. The dyson has too much suction to work on these and again with the brush turned off will not clean them. The profile is too high to get under anything at all and the hose does not work well for this chore as the tool hose is a springy type so when you use the tools, the vacuum follows you around and hits you. Plus, the tool hose is so tightly wound, I was having to keep constant pressure on it to keep it from retracting. Finally, I thought the technology re weight would have improved over the years but this vacuum is so heavy it made my arm, wrist and back hurt even though it is self propelled with the brush on. Actually, this feature is also way over kill as I was fighting to keep the vacuum from running away from me. If you are thinking of switching from a canister, don't go with this vacuum. If you have hardwood/tile floors with area rugs, it's too expensive and too much vacuum for the job.

Verified Purchase
All you ever need. I already had a Dyson Animal and I bought this for my daughter. I recommend against paying extra for the Animal tag because it's the same unit minus a couple useless attachments. Once you use one of these you will not buy anything else. It does such a wonderful job and you will be amazed at all the dirt your old unit was missing. No need to purchase fancier models from Dyson. The basic unit is the same in all of them. Amazon is able to connect you to much lower prices than anyone. They know the way around the legalities of the franchise stipulations on pricing.

** Note ** - As of this writing, Amazon is pricing the DC17 "all floors" model higher than the DC17 "animal". While the product nomenclature is a bit confusing, as far as I can tell (and based on other reviews), the only difference between the two is the Animal includes an upholstery brush attachment. Even if you don't want said attachment, there's no reason to pay more for the DC17 All Floors than the DC17 Animal. **

While I purchased the DC17 Animal, it's largely the exact same product as this DC17 "All Floors", with the exception of the upholstery tool, which I didn't even mention in my review. Thus, my review is applicable to the All Floors, too.

I was recently in the market for a vacuum to replace my aging Bissell bagless unit, which even when it was new was just a mediocre product. I didn't know much about vacuums, but based on customer reviews and word of mouth, I was under the impression the Dyson was one of the better products on the market. I debated between the DC17 Animal and the DC25 Animal, and ultimately decided to go with the former because I have a single story house, so the added heft of the DC17 (which seems to be the main drawback vs. the DC25) wasn't that big an issue. Note I live in a ~2000 sq ft single story ranch, with mostly wood floors and area rugs with some tile (bathrooms, kitchen), and I have a large dog that sheds a lot. At the time of my purchase, I didn't know much about the pros/cons of certain types of vacuums (i.e. upright vs. canister, bag vs. bagless), but the product description for the Dyson said it works well on all types of floors and my previous vacuum was an upright, so I figured the DC17 would be a good choice and purchased it from Amazon.
