Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CSNRW Hubby Loves It!! Everything the commercials say and more
My husband has been wanting a Dyson since he saw the commercials. They are so expensive that I thought we could never afford one. Well, I decided to buy him this Dyson for a Xmas present. Gave it to him before Xmas and he absolutely loves it. He vacuums everyday now, which is a good thing for me!? The vacuum is all it says it would do and I would recommend it especially if you have animals. Cleans up the pet hair...oh ya!!!

This is exactly as described. A very useful, lightweight vacuum. Very easy to use, easy to clean, and does a great job. Love it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RCS47 Great portable vacuum
This is a perfect vacuum for touch up cleaning. This is not a vacuum for whole house cleaning. Perfect for cleaning out the car and small cleaning jobs. It has a push to operate switch that is not a problem for short duration cleaning, which is what this vacuum is designed for. Easily mounts on wall for storage. Catch it on sale for best value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Meck16 We are very pleased with our purchase.
The Dyson DC44 is light and easy to operate.We are able to reach high spaces because of its weight and mobility. It gives a sterling performance in cleaning our condo.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Disappointed in length of battery life :(
We owned the hand-held cordless vacuum for years that did not have the wand. After realizing that a wand attachment could not be purchased for our current vacuum, we opted to buy the DC44 Animal model. We have a dog that sheds and thought this would be a good choice for us. We have tile floors with area rugs so purchasing a large vacuum was not necessary. Our home is only 1900 square feet and I can only use this for two rooms at a time (for a total of about 10 minutes) before the battery dies. We keep it charged at all times so we should not be experiencing this problem.
Another issue is that the vacuum gets clogged very fast with dog hair and will make a very strange noise before stopping all together. I have to detach the wand from the bottom and take a tool to remove any dog hair or dirt that has accumulated.
I am so frustrated as we have spent hundreds of dollars on two Dyson products. I am now thinking I need a larger vacuum with a cord and honestly, I'm not sure I will be ordering a Dyson. I thought they were the best out there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JP2016 Works great, but after several years design flaw
We have used this cordless vacuum almost everyday for the past three years. We have loved it in almost every way. Great suction, easy to use, good utility tools for both home and the car, and a really long runtime.
However, after about two years of solid use, we noticed the battery starting to get loose from the bottom of the unit. When this happens, the vacuum cuts out. You have to push the battery pack back into its fully seated position for it to start again. It does this multiple times during a use. I finally got to the point of using strong packing tape to just hold the battery in place.
I think the problem stems from how the unit comes off the charger base. I have the base hanging on the wall and to get the unit off, you have to pull out and up. This motion appears to be putting undue strain directly on the battery as it sits in the charger on the bottom of the battery. The repeated titling pulling motion I think has loosened the mechanism that keeps the battery attached securely to the unit.
I think a redesign of how the unit is pulled out of the base\charger is needed so that this issue won't occur.
Other than that, we would like to buy the latest model to have in our basement as well.

Overall I really like this vacume. It is a bit akward to use in comparison to other cordless hand helds, but it does a great job. I find the battery never lasts as long as I would like, but perhaps I ask too much from it.

We love our Dyson Sticks. But thats the problem .We have to keep buying new ones. We use it everyday as our primary vacuum and it doesnt seem to hold up to that kind of usage. Otherwise we love it. The convenience of no cord is great and the suction is always strong. Its a great vacuum
