I did a lot of research and reading on this item before purchasing it so I could be well informed about it and the competitors version. I love the Shark Rocket Slim Vac. It is more powerful than my Dyson Pet Upright Vacuum, easier to get up high without a lot of fuss and I can get under the beds without having to disconnect and connect to other parts. It is lightweight and maneuvers easily around and under everything. I do have to empty the dust cup after each room I clean but then I had to empty the dirt on my Dyson pretty often too, so that does not bother me. I love the long cord, I can reach just about the whole house from on plug in. I highly recommend this product....
The Shark HV302 is a really good vacuum, I mean it sucks really good. The 2 drawbacks I have are the cord getting in the way, but really no that bad. The other is the dust bin is a bit small and requires the whole motor unit to empty, it does not detach you just hold it over the trash and open. I usually bring the garbage can closer to where I am vacuuming to make emptying a bit more convenient.
I did a fair amount of research into vacuums, and I felt very confident with purchasing this product--I could not be happier! I was shocked when I used it for the first time (after using my Swiffer, just as an experiment) and it picked up soooo much that I didn't even know was there! It is extremely easy to maneuver, even when it is completely FLAT under my furniture. It definitely stands up to its name, Rocket. When you vacuum forwards, it shoots like a rocket! It was a little weird at first, but then it just became really fun. My only complaint, which is small, is that after a little while, my arm gets tired because the majority of the weight is high, but I just switch hands and I'm fine. Overall: My new BFF!
Great little vacuum. Very handy and not too heavy to operate easily. We like Shark products very much. After using a Dyson for many years I have switched for good. They are too complicated, don't clean any better and the hoses, etc don't hold as well.
This is a great little vacuum especially if you have pets. It has high powered suction, easy to disconnect the head, and easy to use. I have used it on furniture, beds, and stairs as well as the carpet to great effect. It isn't heavy either. Next stop I'm going to try it in my car.
Think small, light weight and powerful. Absolutely love this vacuum. I can get under every piece of furniture in my house (always a pet peeve with other vacs}. I'm 67 and just got tired of pushing monster vacs around. Let the vacuum do the work.. Some people are trying to push this like an upright. Release your arm when you vacuum and end of problem.. Also easy to clean and a washable filter to boot. Some people complain about the motor being attached so you have to empty it over a bin with motor in hand....Really? Get a life, the thing ways next to nothing when compared to an upright. It's also very easy to store. Mine didn't come with a wall mount and I wouldn't have used it anyway. Love this thing so much I'm buying another as a gift.
I have had this vacuum a few weeks now and love it! I took off one star because it is a little heavy and canister is a little too small- needs to be emptied often. Otherwise it has great suction and is very functional as it easily allows you to switch attachments for cleaning floors, stairs, upholstery and overhead nooks and crannies! Haven't tried the mini attachments yet but am looking forward to giving the car a good clean up!
I was recommend this Rocket compared to a **** and she was really pleased with hers so I said thats what I'll try and so far its pretty great. I love the color and the power this stick vacumn has. I also was deciding on the cord or cordless and more people complained about the power going out after 20 minutes and I need more time and this has lots of cord length so I'am pleased with everything so far. Also heard complaints about emptying the container but seen no problem emptying and very satisfied with this product so far. Also got the 2yr warrenty to be on the safe side. Love it so far.
Sent as a gift to my daughter who has been pushing around an old Kirby...She loves it and has great suction, no bag to mess, with and sees visible dust and removes it each time, keeping a cleaner rug surface. Now if she can only teach her boyfriend how much fun this is!
