Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2307 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC44 Animal - great vacuum I am very pleased with my purchase of the DC44. It has equal suction of my corded vacuum cleaner. I have 3 rooms to clean and have never run out of battery life. It goes flat and can get under my sofa and tables. The hand piece is removable to pick up small debris and I hope to use the hand held to clean my car. It is wonderful to be able to vacuum and not have a cord to deal with. Emptying the collection bucket is easy. The only downside of this cleaner is that you have to hold down the button the whole time you are cleaning. There should be an on/off switch. You will be happy if you purchase the DC44. March 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DC44 is Awesome!!!! I love this vacuum - it's so versatile, it cleans hardwood, tile and carpet surfaces - thoroughly!!! I can take it all over the house without lugging a cord. I am presently surprised at how well the suction and attachments work. It's seamless and well designed, as all Dyson products are! The trade off is you have to make sure that the filters are cleaned once a month, as instructed. I hung the carrier in my garage and it charges when not in use. The best all-around vacuum that I've ever had. April 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use and Powerful After purchasing a Dyson Fan I decided it was time to give their vacuums a try. I purchased the DC44 and am extremely satisfied with my purchase. The vacuum is easy to maneuver and the battery lasts long enough to clean my apartment multiple times from top to bottom. I love that I can clean high and low with the DC44. Also, it hardly makes any noise compared to other vacuums I've used. It works great to clean up my girlfriend's dog's hair as well. I'm definitely a happy customer! April 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great light weight sweeper Great light weight cordless sweeper! These sweepers are powerful as had a great one before this for years that almost sucked up the rug! This one I bought as now have sever back problems and other health problems so hoped it would be light and easy to use which it is. Another plus is can use the other attachment in car. This sweeper is great for thin to medium thick rugs but on down side would not work on plush rugging but you will be surprized to see what all it picks up ! For my situation this is perfect ! And can use every day with no lugging as so light and easy. I'm very happy I bought this :) March 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dc44 handheld review Functional , small and lightweight. Clogs easily if you have fluffy pets. Keep a thin brush or even axpencil to remove fur/ that gets trapped on the side of the dust bin. Battery life is good and i can vacuum the entire house. It doesnt take the place of my big dydon for carpets, but hard floors stairs and quick pickups its great. No bending, no stretching, cob webs gone. I have brain cancer so its necessary for me to have a light weight maneuverable appliance to use. April 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best small vac I've ever used This vac is so handy. I really like how it picks up and goes from hardwood to ceramic to small carpets. I use it every day. I have a cat and a dog and it picks up their hair and any dirt the dog may bring into the house. It is great for any other cleaning. I like the design. We have a two story foyer and I can take the long section off, put on an attachment and sweet the carpet up on the ledge. It is great. The only thing negative I can say is that if you miss a piece of dirt and draw the vac backwards, it will not pick up. But an easy fix is to life up the lightweight vac and put it behind the piece of dirt and go forward. Very easy. I would recommend this vac to anyone. March 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good for a short time only. Sirs, I bought the DC44 Animal for my wife as a Christmas Present. She was real happy for a short time. The head clogs up very quickly and stops. Once I cleaned the filter, according to Dyson's instructions, the machine stopped completely after a couple of more uses. Now the machine will not even start????? I am totally disappointed in the product. The follow-up service was good but the machine has not lived up to the hype. Have you heard the saying "Happy Wife, Happy Life"? Life is not so good these days! March 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 DC44 Animal Has Limitations Don't get me wrong, I do like my DC44 Animal. I do have a few concerns about it though. It has great suction on high but the charge for the high power setting lasts only 8 minutes before the cleaner has to be recharged - not a lot of cleaning time per charge. For a quick clean or sweep it works very well. The power switch has to be constantly engaged to work. I have small hands so that has been a problem. I wish there was the option of an on/off switch. I find that I often have to clean the power brush head as it easily becomes clogged with what its picked up. It is light weight which is helpful, but due to the design of the head it doesn't fit under furniture easily. It is easy to store and does have useful tools that come with it. March 22, 2015
