I really hate this thing

Richard Walley, Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I really hate this thing. It's hard to lug around. It's clumsy. I feel like the power of a dyson should actually vacuum...but not this one. It sucks up surface debris but beyond that forget it... Totally not worth the price and if I didn't pay $200+ I would throw it out. Worst vacuum I've ever had.

Doesn't last too long...

Lawrence Letch, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: The Dyson works well when it is running, but the power head has failed within 12 months of use; and that with only one carpet to clean! When it is being used the wand design feels cumbersome, a little difficult to control for someone of slight build.

Worst Vacuum I have EVER used

K-Sue, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: Even my 15 year old son agrees this vacuum is awful. I purchased this vacuum to replace my Dyson DC17--I had hardwoods installed in half my house and needed something more versatile....this is NOT it. This vacuum does not even come close to cleaning carpets.

The Refurbishment Factory has bedbugs!

S. Humes, Amazon
4 July 2013
  • Summary: Yikes! My machine arrived by UPS, and as I signed the electronic signature pad, I watched bedbugs crawl out of the shipping carton onto UPS man. I was afraid to open the shipping carton.

Very Disappointed

Jlayner, Amazon
28 April 2012
  • Summary: I have always been a Dyson fan until I bought this vacuum. I don't even feel like it is a Dyson. Not good for stairs at all - power head is way to light and does not pick up anything. I contacted Dyson to trade for another model and they blew me off. Will never buy another Dyson product.

Misses by a mile

btbeme "schillinglori", Amazon
31 December 2011
  • Summary: I heard a lot of positive opinions about Dyson products, but never really investigated them closely until it became apparent that we had to replace out Miele canister. We didn't really consider any of the Dyson uprights, since we have all hard floors and need to be able to vacuum underneath...

One Vacuum trying to take the place of two (and failing).

Alex Baker "ToolNut", Amazon
26 December 2011
  • Summary: The problem with the DC23 is that is isn't a good floor vacuum and it isn't a good hand vacuum either. Also, it isn't as portable as you might think. When compared to a hand vacuum: What you want is a shop vac type setup with a quick well made attachment on the end of a long hose.

Terrible machine!

Tdog "puglover", Amazon
6 July 2011
  • Summary: I guess I'm just not a fan of Dyson because I really tried to like it but it's not as good as my Hoover. It took too long to vacuum carpet with that small of a head. It was actually pretty weak on carpet and didn't leave those nice lines unless I went over it 2 or 3 times.

Don't buy the hype!

Benjamin Cummins, Amazon
19 May 2011
  • Summary: I have owned a Dyson for almost 2 years. Within the first 6 months the plastic tubing to the powerhead split. I phoned Dyson and they were extremely nice and sent a replacement immediately.
