Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe good for small vacuum jobs, but won't replace your main vacuum I bought this vacuum expecting it would replace my main vacuum, also a Shark. However, the performance just didn't stack up. The dust cup was full after two rooms because it's small. The vacuum wasn't vacuuming up everything so there was kitty litter left on the carpet. My biggest complaint was how heavy it was. I know it was stupid that I didn't anticipate this, but because you are holding the majority of the machine rather than it being on the base, my neck and shoulder was killing me by the time I was done with it. My final complaint was that because the motor and other parts are on top, the vacuum is too top heavy to be left sitting while you quickly move something. If you aren't holding it upright at all times, it will fall over. If you are looking for a quick touch-up vacuum, this might be for you but I would not recommend it for vacuuming your whole house or if you have pets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE it!!! I already have the popular very expensive vacuum that everyone raves about but it is heavy and doesn't do steps or bare floors. We have carpet, wood, tile, and laminate in our house...just depends on which room...this little Shark cleans them all beautifully. Attachments are easy to switch out and use and emptying is simple. At first I thought I would not like it because the attachment for carpet seems to swivel a bit....and it is small....and it seemed like it would be a bit awkward with the canister being at the top near the handle. Not so at all....it is very lightweight and easy to maneuver. I have always loved canister vacs and when I bought this one I was looking for a canister....but this one is a perfect canister and upright all in one. Attachments are so easy to switch out I found myself vacuuming all the furniture and cleaning imaginary (and real) cobwebs out of corners this past weekend...VERY satisfied with this purchase!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My one and only complaint, wear ear plugs It is a bit loud if you are used to having the motor near the floor and not your head. Other than that, be ready to suck the heck out of your house! I really didn't think it was outdoing my bagged vacuum as far as picking up the packed in dirt. I live in Western Kansas, where it is still the dust bowl. When I went to empty the canister, it just kept on coming out. It has a self propelled option that can take a little getting used to, it will steer squirrely until you get used to that too, so prepare for some tired shoulders. I used the Cordless Shark Navigator for the past 3 or 4 years, but I tire of replacing the whole thing due to the dead batteries. The Shark Rocket has a very long cord that is very convenient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the ease of use and attachments This vacuum is super easy to assemble with only 3 main components that click together. It's lightweight which is a plus, but it won't stand up on its own if you need to walk away to fix the cord, etc due to the motor being on top. It did a great job getting all the dog hair which is one of the main reasons I bought this! The attachments are easy to use and I love that everything just clicks together or releases with the push of a button. The only attachment I haven't used yet is the hard floor one with the microfiber pad, but it's done such a good job picking up everything without the pad that I haven't needed to use it yet. I really enjoy being able to use the handheld portion of the vacuum with the attachments to clean furniture, baseboards, and cobwebs in the corners of the ceiling. I would reccomend this vacuum to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has great features for its size. Shark Vacuum exceeded my expectation for a lightweight easy to handle machine. The power is good and able to clean my whole house with ease. I like the easy to use attachments and long wand that enable me to clean draperies, air vents and those hard to reach places. I would recommend this vacuum to a friend. The price is right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best one I ever bought It's shocking how much more came out of my carpets after I used my old vacuum. I still filled the container. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product met all my expectations with its great features My previous vacuum cleaner finally broke down beyond repair and I was looking for one that weighed a lot less as I have developed arthritis in my hands and two herniated discs in my back. The Shark has met and exceeded my expectations in that regard. I do not have any trouble with my hands or back after using it as it is so light. Also, its cleaning ability is fabulous. I have used it on carpets and rugs that were recently vacuumed and was amazed/appalled at the amount of dirt and dust removed by this little vacuum. Yes, I have to empty the dust catcher more frequently than the bag cleaner I had, but it is well worth that minor inconvenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Shark!!! I was a little unsure if I would like this version but I decided to give it a try since it seemed so light weight but still just as effective. I have only ever used the shark navigator so I was hoping it would be just as strong like it says it is. I was very impressed, after vacuuming just a small area of our living room the vaccum had picked up so much dust and dirt(gross)!! I got this vaccum because we have a new baby and I just didn't feel like our old vaccum was picking up much, boy was I right. I would definitely recommend this vaccum to anyone.

how much does this vacuum weigh?

This vac is for an 89 year old who still cleans her house but needs a vac that is light weight.
Asked by: sammypoo
Not sure about the weight but with the motor at the top it does seem to be more taxing on the arm. I would not recommend for someone looking for a lightweight vacuum or for an elderly person. Hope this helps.

Cat litter?

Has anyone tried this for cat litter? Does it get it up from the standing position? I have a dirt devil hand held that works great, but very hard on my back.
Asked by: hate2shopforme
I recently purchased the shark rocket for my two bedroom apartment which has wood floors and area rugs and One cat .. The vacuum works wonderful in the standing position on all areas especially cleaning up cat litter because my cat is quite the messy one and I do have to keep up with her .. It's lightweight and very maneuverable to be able to get into All nooks and crannies. Also you can break it apart and use it as a hand vac if necessary..

Is it gentle enough for laminate floors while still powerful?

I have really nice laminate flooring covering about 75% of my house. A spinning brush would scratch the delicate floor. Is this vac powerful enough to pick up grit such as stray pieces of cat litter without a brush coming in contact with the floor? Has anyone had this shark scratch or mar laminate?
