Product Description

Delivering 220 airwatts of suction power, this canister vacuum cleaner features advanced Level 3 Root Cyclone technology to ensure thorough, efficient cleaning with no clogging or loss of suction. It also offers a TurbineHead brush bar that's ideal for cleaning medium and short pile carpets and can be turned off for hard floors. Certified asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, the unit expels air that contains up to 150 times less mold and bacteria than common breathing air thanks to the vacuum's money-saving, lifetime washable HEPA filter. Plus, Dyson's Bactisafe screen traps and kills bacteria, mold and allergens on contact, preventing them from re-entering the air.

The Telescopic Wrap System allows the hose and wand to be compressed, and ensures that the Dyson DC23 can be stored away neatly and compactly, with no loose components or wires to get tangled. It comes with a stair tool for focusing on dust and dirt from stairs and stair carpets, a brush tool with long bristles to dislodge cobwebs and for delicate cleaning, and a high-velocity airflow crevice tool that's ideal for cleaning base boards, picture frames and in-between furniture. Other features include a clear bin with 0.44-gallon capacity, 21.6-foot cord length, and easy-to-maneuver fixed wheels. The vacuum measures 13.9 x 19.3 x 11.9 inches (HxWxD) and weighs 19.5 pounds. The Dyson DC23 TurbineHead is backed by a 5-year warranty.

Despite the fact that the Dysons have never been a top pick on Consumer Reports (even though they consistently rate high for brand reliability), I went ahead and purchased the DC23 Turbinehead from Target for $399.

As people often find when purchasing a new vacuum, they pick up a lot of dust and dirt in the carpet that their old vacuum left behind. Mainly because most older vacuums just lose suction even if you replace the filters and maintain all the parts. I find that to be frustrating and disappointing, and that's mainly one of the reasons that I went with the Dyson -- I'm hoping it lives up to their tagline (Never Loses Suction).

The suction on the DC23 is good. The turbine head attachment spins quickly and pulls in cat litter and other little particles in the carpet. I was revolted by the giant thick dust ball I picked up in just one bedroom with the first use. The DC23 does it's job well. So here's the run down of what I like and don't like about this model:

-Excellent suction, vacuums well. Easily picks up all the cat hair and cat litter I throw at it.
-Small, light weight and portable
-Beautifully designed -- it's shocking to look at this model next to all the Hoovers, Dirt Devils, and Bissells of the world that look like something straight out of the 80's. Also glad they are moving away from the yellow plastic!
-Easy to empty dust bin, no bags
-Because of the small head, this vacuum can go where most uprights cannot -- under beds and tables.

-It's a little expensive, however, will be well worth it if it actually lasts a long time without losing suction
-Storage is a little flimsy -- the hose just sort of hangs out off of the vacuum and the head attachment very loosely attaches to the canister base.

I read a whole bunch of reviews prior to purchasing a DC23 last year because of the price difference, and was taken by the raves about how much the new vac picked up on purchase. The most negative stuff I found related to the quality of plastic used, the awkward wrapping of the hose for storage, maybe a few comments about the head not standing on its own, things I didn't think would be that big a deal. I paid the premium price based on the marketing of the unit (an engineer doing things properly), thinking that if it didn't live up to the hype it would've been noted online. I expected to be delighted by this vacuum. I wasn't.

After just about 6 months use:
- the canister does collect amazing volumes of stuff from floors, and it is cool to observe it doing so, but I note that it is now cleaning up after itself, so to speak, and so it isn't another brands shortcoming... Still, noteworthy performance.
- I find the power head and floor attachments to be pretty good.
- the power cord is really good at rewinding. No seriously, they got this much better than my last vacuum. Not too strong that it could be dangerous, but strong enough to be efficient. I like it a lot and I hope it works like this for the life of the product.
Overall does vacuuming like a vacuum.

- I empty the canister every single use, as it looks quite full which is not something I ever worried about previously. I can live with that, but I've never seen anyone comment on how awkward emptying the canister into a garbage can is. The entire base kinda flops down and usually releases a cloud of dust no matter how carefully you open it.

If you live in a residence that is predominantly hardwood floor, this is one of the better vacuums - no make, that the best. The turbine-powered airbrush works well for moderately shaggy rugs and floors, and while it is not a cheap canister, it is money well spent. I have never sucked out so much dust. Dyson has always scored a very high mark for design and this is no exception. It is quite easy to dump all the dust out from the bin, and I prefer canister vacuums since they're easy to put away.

Get the Motorhead if you have fully carpeted floors. For me the Turbinehead is more than enough.

I bought the Dyson DC23 a few months ago and have been having a major problem with it. On one of my carpets, it WILL NOT pick up cat hair. My old $50 hoover would. So when I spent over $300 on this vaccum, I would EXPECT it would do at least as good of a job as the Hoover. The vaccum itself is made well, and works well in most other areas. So I called Dyson to find out what could be done. I first spoke to a service rep named Marcus Z. who gave ma an email address, so I could send him a video of how bad a job this Dyson was doing. I sent it off, and never heard back. So I called back a week later. I had to drop it off at a Dyson dealer (repair shop) to get tested. It tested fine, but the owner of the show, knew it was not pickeing up cat hair because of the "turbine head", AKA not powered.

So I call back again today (after still no response from Dyson), and spoke to Sheila. WOW. I can't believe this woman has a job. She was yelling and changing my story around, so I asked to speak to a supervisor. Finally Tracy called me back and told me that basically I'm S.O.L. Which I am.

I was suckered into a new fancy vaccum, by the ad's on TV and the promise of how much suction this thing had. When in reality, My $50 Hoover did a better job. Today I'm going to pull out that old vaccum, and get my carpets clean again. I can't comment on other models, but my advice is to stay away from the turbine head models. I was told there is no, "trade in trade up", program offered.

I will try to upload my video so you can all see, that this does not work properly. I Just Think Things Should Work Properly too, Mr. Dyson.
