    I bought this vacuum after moving into a new house. The house has hard wood floors as well as carpet, vinyl and tile. I have a cat and two small children, one who just learned to crawl, so I needed a solution that would clean all of the floors thoroughly, but easily. I had heard about Dyson's reputation as a vacuum that never loses suction and it became apparent that my 5+ year old upright had. This was my first time using a canister vacuum, but I was enticed by the possibility of vacuuming under the furniture, so I gave it a try. It took a little getting used to since you drag the vacuum behind instead of pushing it in front, but once I got the hang of it I had a little fun. Vacuuming the stairs was a breeze and the amount of dirt the Dyson sucked out of the carpets that my other vacuum left behind was a little scary. My favorite part was using the new articulating hard wood floor tool - it reached EVERYWHERE - behind the toilet, right up next to the floor boards, in between the kitchen chairs, etc.! My only complaint, and it's a big one, is storage of the vacuum. The animal comes with three attachment heads, but there is no where to stow them. Even more annoying is the hose is not long enough to wrap twice around the body of the canister and it doesn't click into place. Also, there is no where to put the wand unless you want to mount it to the front where it sticks 3 feet straight up in the air - not practical at all! I am actually surprised by the obvious oversight in design, especially since Dyson is all about engineering innovation. The vacuum is great, the tools are awesome, the features are phenomenal. Storage of the vacuum is quite silly and cumbersome. Hopefully Dyson addresses this problem in future models.

    I bought a dyson because it came highly recommended. Yes the suctoin is great as long as it isn't on short carpet, The turbine head stops working, it needs to be electric so it keeps running. It is easy to empty and it is very light. The other big thing I didn't like was the the hose coming out of the side, everytime you pull it goes sideways and runs in to things.It doesn't make sense, if im going to spend this much money on a vacuum the little things should be better thought out. I would be happy to have my old vacuum back. I'm not an upright vacuum person so when I saw these I was happy. but I would not recommend buying one for that much money it's just not worth it.

    DC23

    By NeetFreek

    Comments about Dyson DC23 Animal Canister Vacuum:

    I have been a dedicated Rainbow user for the last 25 to 30 years. After my Rainbow finally broke, I reviewed and shopped online and stores for weeks before finally deciding on the Dyson DC23 Animal Canister. We have a busy household, two non-shedding dogs but lots of traffic in and out. The Dyson has not disappointed me, in fact, I have been coverted to Dyson all the way! Easy to put together, easy to store, easy to empty. We have combination hardwood floors and oriental rugs and I have been very pleased with performance of my DC23. Love the way the bare floor attachment moves, you can get into the tightest of places. The power nozzle does well on my oriental rugs also. I would recommend this vacuum! The only real learning curve for me is to make sure that the canister is closed tightly after emptying. Sometimes the catch does not catch fully, I have emptied dust on my clean floors twice but now know to pay attention making sure it is closed tightly.

    Comments about Dyson DC23 Animal Canister Vacuum:

    I couldn't believe when I used my Dyson first time! I only used, let's say, about 2 SQ ft area and OMG so much pet hair came up!! It's easy to use and operate, but the only thing I wish is that if they have on/off switch where I hold the nozzle it will be much easier than the switch on the base.

    DC23

    By Chacha

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dyson DC23 Animal Canister Vacuum:

    I own the upright animal Dyson, The battery operated Dyson and the DC23. I do not like the DC23 at all, it's cord is too short, it will not roll over it's own cord, and does not pick up my animal fur. I am constantly feeding it to the machine. Does not make my job easier at all. I love my big upright, never had a problem and the battery operated dyson is perfect for use in my bathroom to pick up dog hair.

      Extremely Disappointed

      By DisappointedDonna

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Dyson DC23 Animal Canister Vacuum:

      Let me preface my review with the fact I considered myself DYSAN's BEST advocate because until now I couldn't stop RAVING about how great their vacuums are. I am a previous owner of two upright dysans (DC10). I LOVED the vacuum and wore two of them out.. THey went through three kids, 2 dogs, 1 cat and 1 rabbit!! I truly couldn't say enough about how much I LOVED my dysan--wouldn't purchase any other vacuum!! THEN I purchased the DC23 Animal because the store did not having any uprights in stock. I am extremely disappointed. I hate the shorter cord, the attachment for carpets does not work....your carpets and rugs do not have that just vacuumed look (probably because the carpet bar doesn't work as well). The same suction is not present as the UPRIGHT vacuums I previously I owned. I so wish I would have returned the vacuum within the 90 day return policy of the store but I was ill and unable to do so. Hence my disappointment. I plan to return the vacuum to dysan for a CHECK-UP to see if it has something wrong with it. I sure hope it comes back with better suction or better yet maybe it will come back as an UPRIGHT!

      DC23 Animal

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Dyson DC23 Animal Canister Vacuum:

      This is exactly the machine I had hoped it would be. Strong vacuum, compact physical design, light weight, and full of attachments to clean floors and furniture. I also had the need to clean stairs which this machine does without hesitation. There is so much suction that the machine actually lifts the areas rugs we have when vacummed. Luckily the vacuum suction can be "broken" with the handy "trigger" pull on the handle. We have three pets all of which shed and we have three other vacuums which we have used to try to meet our need to remove hair. Nothing works like this vacuum. After using the other vacuums I went over the same furniture with the DC23 and there was so much hair it picked up I was wondering if I had the older vacuums set up right. There is nothing else like this vacuum anywhere.

      Comments about Dyson DC23 Animal Canister Vacuum:

      On the positive side, the Dyson DC23 is wonderful at picking up dog hair. I have 3 large shedding dogs so consequently the hair is like tumblweed! Unfortunately though,static causes hair to stick to the wand and to the attachments ..... making its own mess. Also, I seem to get a lot of shocks while vacuuming now .... quite disconcerting, to say the least!

      Comments about Dyson DC23 Animal Canister Vacuum:

      I can't say how many reasons I LOVE this vac. It sucks up my puppy hair like nothing I've used before, not even a Kirby! I'm amazed how much hair I continualy vaccuum, even everyday. It's light weight. Easy to empty. How nice just to push a button, instead of wrapping up the cord and hoping for the best. It's a game now with my pup as it quickly returns back inside the vac. Who knew it that. Thanks for the best machine ever!!!
