I certainly enjoyed Dune, and it has definitely been influential. It's never been one of my top favorites, though -- it certainly is one of the books I would recommend for someone trying to build up their knowledge of classic SF; one of those "everyone has read it" books, at least back in the 80's when I was still vaguely keeping current. It's been a long time since I last read it, though. I see the Kindle version is only $5.22 though, so perhaps it is time.

I never read any of the sequels, though, neither the ones by Herbert or the many since his death. Most of my friends who did found them disappointing, so it never seemed worth the trouble.

What I saw of the SciFi channel miniseries I thought was actually fairly good.
