I got this because I am a huge Dyson fan and we do not have a lot of closet space to store a big vacuum cleaner so I thought that this would be a really good option to have. This vacuum works just as well as one of the big Dyson's, it is very powerful. I love that it has a lot of suction power and this never seems to go away. This is so great to have for stairs, it makes it so easy and convenient to vacuum up your stairs and it is so nice to never have to find a power outlet to plug into or to have to maneuver around a cord. There are only two real big negatives for me with this vacuum cleaner. The first is that since this is battery powered, it does not last long and it will die on you after you have only done a little bit, this makes it hard to get the whole house vacuumed without recharging in between. The second problem I have found with it is that the canister fills up so fast and easy that you have to empty it out a lot. This would be the perfect vacuum for a smaller place but it just is not very useful in a large home.

          I have two of these. I keep one in the RV. It's great because it's lightweight for the stairs and for quick clean ups. Great for getting into crevices in the sofa! I wish it had more charge time on it though for those longer clean ups. I love it though, that's why I have two!!!

              I received the Dyson Animal as a Christmas gift. At first I thought a vacuum for a gift?! Let me tell you, it was a wonderful gift. I have two kids and two dogs. My house is primarily tile flooring. The Dyson Animal is small powerful and convenient. I use it several times a day to vacuum up dog hair and crumbs in the kitchen area. It has great suction and is lightweight. It is quick and easy. Easy to empty and nice and slim for storage. I always have mine out because I use so often. It is a little pricey but well worth it.

              Comments about Dyson Animal DC44 Digital Slim:

              Let me first start by saying, I am obsessed with this vacuum! At first I was a little bit skeptical of purchasing this because it is so expensive, I was not sure how it was going to work on the pet hair because I have tried so many different vacuums and none of them were successful. After one use I fell in love. I only have to go over the pet hair spots 1 maybe 2 times and it is all cleaned up not a single trace of pet hair. It works better than any vacuum that I have ever tried. It is well worth the money. I love the fact that it is lightweight, easy to use and easy to maneuver around the house. No chord so you can take it anywhere. Only downfall is the battery will only last about 20 minutes. Other than that, 5 stars for Dyson Animal DC44 slim!!

              Powerful suction. Quick and easy to use. Little hard to remove the internal filter to clean it. One of my best buys for cleaning floors. Wish it had an off an on button so that you do not have to keep pressing down to keep it running. Hard on arthritis hands. I bought an extra battery for occasional longer cleaning time. I have 2000 square feet.
