Again, the Motor Head did my carpeted stairs very very well and was easy to use.

The Motorhead impressed me with the way it moves on carpet, as well as with its aggressive brush roll that deep cleans carpets quite well.

The only thing that I thought could be made a little better quality is the hose itself.

The purpose of this review is not to be complete, but rather append to Keith Rogers' thorough review.

Before the DC23, I owned the Dyson DC08 cylinder vacuum with a Root Cyclone and a mini turbine head attachment. The DC08 mini turbine head ground constantly to a halt if you held it at a wrong angle to the surface. This got very frustrating. Fortunately the design of the DC23 mini and large turbine heads have fixed this issue and no longer get stuck. This was achieved by giving the turbine a separate airflow from the brush head so it won't get blocked.

What I still don't like, however, is that like all Dysons, emptying the dust bin is a messy business. The bottom of the bin flips open at a press of a button - but a lot of the fluff remains stuck between the outer wall and the inner cyclone. The outer wall must be detached and the whole apparatus knocked vigorously to make the dust come loose. You may even want to use a brush to clean the small holes. All of this is rather inconvenient to do indoors over a dustbin. This won't be a problem for people who have a backyard and can do it outdoors, but for me it is. And do hold your breath while you're at it.

Also, since the design is more compact while the 3-stage Core Separator design takes up more room, there is actually less room for dust in the bin. This means the bin fills up faster and needs to be emptied more frequently.

Other than that, this is a great design and a joy to use. It looks like a futuristic alien gizmo, which is always a plus.

Instead of writing a long paragraph, I'll just jump to the pros and cons

Pros:
- Amazing suction: The amount of dirt and lint it sucks is incredible. Compared to my old hoover where I had to go over the carpet few times to suck out all the dirt, the DC23 is so powerful, I only have to run over the carpet once or twice and the carpet is clean. This is primarily due to the strong suction but also to the very powerful brush.
- I have very expensive and old rugs with tassels. When the motorized brush runs over the tassels, the brush shuts off. My old hoover vacuum would either gets intangled with the tassels or the rubber band connected to the motor would snap.
- It has a telescopic rod. When fully contracted, the DC23 is ideal for cleaning steps.

cons:
- VERY BIG WEAKNESS: The motorhead is so strong (a plus as I described above), it sucks in my delicate and fine rugs. Not only it sucks it in, but it's also stripping some of the threading from the 100 year old rugs. I wish Dyson had put a level to control the rotator head instead of just providing an on/off switch.
- Again, because of the strong suction, I'm having to empty the canister 3 or 4 types every time I vacuum my whole house, 2300sf. This is pretty minor actually but it was worth noting because my wife was complaining about it. I didn't seem to mind or care about having to empty out the canister frequently.

I would definitely recommend the Dyson DC23 to anyone looking for a bagless canister vacuum that is very powerful, efficient on all types of flooring, compact for easy storage, and great at deep cleaning carpet pile. I use my DC23 almost daily, and I am amazed to see how much deep down filth like sand and grit it accumulates every time I vacuum. This Dyson is a very powerful machine that is very efficient at cleaning both hard flooring and carpets, comes with a wonderful assortment of attachments for cleaning floors, carpets, and hard to reach areas, and its very compact for easy storage in small spaces.

The design of the DC23 is as impressive as its performance, with much function behind its draconian appearance. I absolutely love the "Telescopic Wand" that extends to full length in less than a second for use with the Motorhead, or bare floor tool(s). I retracts back inward for easy use with the stair tool, crevice tool, and dusting brush. In addition to being impressed with the Telescopic wand, I also found myself quite fond of the Motorhead power nozzle attachment.

The Motorhead impressed me with the way it moves on carpet, as well as with its aggressive brush roll that deep cleans carpets quite well. The Motorhead moves and corners with ease with a design Dyson calls the "Tri-Ball Arrangement"; this is a motion apparatus that consists of a low wide roller, accompanied by a small wheel on each side of it. The three wheels work in concert to allow the user flexible steering of the Motorhead, much like the Ball uprights. Left and right turns are executed with a simple flick of the wrist. The brush within the Motorhead is driven by a powerful 120V 60 Hz 80 W motor that sends power to the brush roll via steel gear drive, eliminating the belt altogether.

The Dyson DC23 motorhead is a huge disappointment. I have owned a Dyson upright for years and was so happy with it that when I decided to buy a canister to make it easier to vacuum under furniture I immediately chose Dyson. Big mistake. The first thing you notice is that Dyson could not have chosen a cheaper made hose. My Dyson uprights hose is reinforced with a wire strand. This hose is so thin that it actually kinks and shuts off suction as you manuever it. I would compare the hose on the canister to what one would expect from a cheap $50 bath tub bubbler that they use to sell many years ago. Dyson could not possibly have made this hose any thinner or cheaper. The lowest supply bidder definately got that contract. It had to have cost Dyson just pennies to buy. But thats not even the real disapointment. This vacuum will convince you not to buy a bagless unit. The suction unit inside the plastic dust collection reservoir is very narrow along the top (only about 1/2"). If you have high pile carpet, the carpet fibers and dirt get lodged between the suction head and the plastic reservoir case. So when you empty it the dirt at the top of the reservoir does not fall out. So now you have to insert something like a knife to force it out and dirt gets everywhere. If everyone made a bagless canister like this one, no one would ever buy a bagless model. Dyson will correct this issue in future models, wait for the engineering changes! Wish I never bought this model.
