Dyson DC23 TurbineHead Canister Vacuum


Consumer ratings for the Dyson DC23 TurbineHead Canister Vacuum are good - not stellar - but typically greater than 4 stars out of 5. For a Dyson it is not too pricey (depending on where you purchase) and it is said to have strong suction, work well on...

Strong suction- Attractive machine- Easy to empty dirt canister- Auto-rewind of power cord- Good on bare surfaces

Lots of plastic construction- Vacuum hose could be longer- Only average on carpet

Consumer comments also indicate that if you have a lot of carpet the Dyson DC23 Motorhead is likely a better choice (although it is more expensive). The brushbar on the Turbinehead is air driven while that on the Motorhead is motor driven giving it...

Dyson DC23 Turbinehead Review


Dyson. The name alone brings to mind James Dyson for his silver locks, lush accent, and a dreamy vacuum. Yes, Dyson takes ordinary objects like vacuums, hand dryers, and fans and turns them into engineering masterpieces that have inspired a cult like...

Terrific suction. Easy to assemble. Large bin holds loads of pet hair and dirt

Can be cumbersome to maneuver. Is a bit loud

Dyson DC23 Motorhead Vacuum Cleaner Review


The Dyson DC23 Motorhead vacuum cleaner is not the most popular Dyson and there is little written about this particular machine. However the few consumer reviews available do give it good ratings. This is a bagless, canister vacuum with tremendous...

Extremely powerful- Good at cleaning both hard surfaces and carpet- Compact- Useful attachments- Powerful brushbar- Flexible steering

No ability too turn down power (brush bar may be too powerful for use on natural fiber rugs)- Fairly loud- Emptying dustbin can be a bit messy- A bit heavy (significant issue for some)- Power cord should be longer

What is covered with the Dyson WarrantyYour Dyson vacuum cleaner is warranted against original defects in material and workmanship for a period of five years from the date of purchase, when used for private household purposes in accordance with the...

Dyson DC23 Turbinehead Canister Vacuum Cleaner


For all those who are sick of vacuuming the same spot over and over and are fed up with the multiplying costs of replacement bags and HEPA filters, the Dyson DC23 Turbinehead is a good quality bagless canister vacuum with good filtration performance...

Good filtration with washable filters. This vacuum's filtration system is certified allergy and asthma friendly and we agree with that claim. Our testing results showed the washable HEPA exhaust filter was 93% effective at capturing all dust and dirt...

The DC23 has only one suction speed which is great for cleaning floors and couches where full suction power is desired, but makes it difficult to clean small bathroom rugs and curtains, which require less suction power. It does have a suction release...

Dyson DC23 Motorhead Canister Vacuum


Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

I own an upright dyson and loved it for carpet but was bulky to use on hard floors. The canister it light weight and easy to maneuver. The animal version has the low profile hard floor attachment and that is the reason I bought the animal version. It...

dyson 18299-01 DC23 Turbinehead Canister Vacuum Gray


Lightweight ; cool" looks if you care about that ; It was "only" $250 as opposed to $400 ; There really aren't that many positives

If it's not in the PROS it's a con ; Suction is poor, build quality is poor. The connectors/joints feel cheap and fragile. Even though the outer casing of everything looks quite meaty and durable the plastics are really weak

DC23 Canister Vacum...


I have always have wanted a Dyson Vacum. I needed a canister to get under the bed and furniture. Well, it goes under the bed and furniture,but the vacum head has no power. It works off suction only. It did pickup the dust bunnies,but did not pick my...
