Cons of Dyson DC23 Animal Canister Vacuum:
- It does take some space to sotre. Though it is not big, you will find it "bulky" to store. You have to take it apart, the tools: turbinehead brush bar, mini turbine head, hard floor tool should be stored separately.
- The hose is short.
- No height adjustments for carpets and rugs.
- A little awkward to use. It will take you more time to vacuum than average.
- The cord is not long, less than 22 feet.
- The placement of the on/off switch to control the brush bar is not user friendly. You cannot control it on the handle, but have to bend down to do this.
- It is hard to drag this vacuum around, it does not "follow" you well.
- It is not easy to use on stairs as advertised.
- Some people complained that it released a cloud of dust while dumping the contents. In fact, you can empty it by following dyson’s guide, such as using a bag to solve this problem, place the dirt bin inside a bag, then close the bag around the dirt bin, now you can dump the dirt without releasing a cloud of dirt and dust.
