1. Best suction even among other Dyson models due to new Level 3 Root Cyclone.
2. Excellent build quality. Each piece is not an after-thought.
3. Best design - shape, color, material and operation.

1. Price - but you do pay for the technology it has to offer.
2. Heavy!
3. The cones gets clogged from fine dirt in time.

Summary: This is arguably one of the best "bagless" household vacuum cleaners money can buy. Dyson's root cyclone technology really does perform. And this latest Level 3 Root Cyclone trumps even its other models.

If you're serious about having a real clean environment, this is THE product to buy. I just moved into an apartment a month ago and they replaced the carpets in most of the area and steam cleaned the others that they deemed need not be replaced. I used the vacuum in both and I can tell you that steam cleaning old carpets may get rid of surface dirt and stains, but Dyson is your friend if you want to suck out most (if not all) the dirt hidden below the surface. I could not believe how much dust it was picking up in such a small area. The bin filled up pretty fast so I was on to round 2 in the same patch of rug. This time it was picking up very find dust. Dust that may have been stuck for years and was never sucked out from other vacuum systems. Round 3 time and you will smile when you realize there is nothing else that's being collected in the bin. As for the newly installed carpets, I could only collect find dust until no more could be collected.

Unlike other vacuums in the market, this is one heck of a quiet vacuum in a relative way. Of course it's still noisy, but as with other brands this won't hurt your noise environment.

Bought a refurb model here on Amazon after hearing so many good things about Dyson. We have 2 dogs, German Shepherd & a Chow. Needless to say, they leave a lot of hair all over the place.

We had 2 different vacuums when we bought the Dyson and neither came close to doing what the Dyson can do.

The first day we tried it out on an area rug - it literally picked up a canister FULL of hair that our other vacs missed earlier that day!

Pros: Quieter than most other vacs, accessories snap in tight, amazing suction power, long power cord.

Cons: hose wand can be unwieldy.

Would love to see an automatic retractable cord.

Overall, my wife and I are extremely happy with this purchase.

Once in a great while a company gets it right.

They make a tool that transforms a task into something you actually WANT to do.

Delta's Unisaw, Stihl Chainsaw, All-clad pans and now Dyson DC 17 vacuum are among those few.

Until yesterday, I figured all vacuums were more-or-less an equal pain. After all, the Bissell (junk) we bought had the same 12 amp, bagless design as the Dyson. I figured "How different could they be?" ( Answer -- LOTS!)

I bought the DC 14 "Animal" yesterday, not realizing there were _2_ Dyson "Animals". (I should have paid closer attention and also realized Bed/Bath/Beyond and Linens-n-Things carried out-of-date merchandise.

They neither one can even get the DC17. )

The DC14 was a good machine. The finest vacuum I had ever used.

As I was about to write my Amazon view (which I should do more often - thanks to all you who take your time to do), when I discovered there was a newer, better, machine -- this one, the DC17. I figured "what the heck." After going over living room 3 times with the Bissell then going over it with the DC14 and being amazed at what it picked up, I thought I had thoroughly cleaned the house with the DC14. After my discovery and subsequent return of DC14 and pick up of DC17 I re-cleaned the (I thought) clean house and was amazed as the dirt the DC17 picked up that the DC14 left behind. Multiple compartments worth!

The DC17 has significantly better suction than the 14, has a more powerful (wider?) head, puts out cleaner air, ...

Buy the DC17.

Be happy.

This is an excerpt of my review from another board I frequent:

This is compared to the DC14 that I purchased on the 3rd of Oct 2006. Now I realize there are many Dyson haters, Hoover haters, Electrolux haters ect. I have NOTHING to gain by sharing my results. I am a Midwest housewife that likes a clean house and this includes clean carpets. Our carpets are professionally steam cleaned every 4 months- get a great deal because we own rentals and use this service alot. Additionally, the steam kills any dust mites in the rug. For the last 4 years I have had a Hoover windtunnel that didn't seem to be picking up after the two Chihuahuas Long and Short hair, (NOW I know it sucked) and was THRILLED to get the DC14 a Linen's and Things for about $[...] including tax. I used the DC14 EVERYDAY since my purchase and was pleasantly surprised and disgusted at the stuff that ended up in the bin. Husband and sons just shook their collective heads at my delight and constant running of the Dyson. But eventually there was no more dirt to be had from my carpets. Just alittle fine powder- I smiled smugly! LOL! The ranch house we were about to move from will be clean for our tenants- so I thought!
Anyhow, since the DC17 was available I wanted one for the upstairs of the new house (which is in the process of being built). Why two you ask? The house is 5,500 square feet so I didn't want to lug one up and down the stairs. So yesterday I did some googling for Best Buy coupons (since that is the only place I have seen them) and found that I could get the DC17 for $[...] online and schedule an in store pickup. The store price was $[...] so I saved about 5%-not much but it helped. Within 90 minutes of ordering it I was home vacuuming.
