    • Best. Vacuum. Ever.

      Amazing vacuum. When my 2nd dyson broke, I decided to buy a Shark. It works very well and has so many great features. Very happy with my purchase.

    • Awesome and Incredible

      I bought this after doing research because my highly rated Hoover upright that I used in the basement family room and Kenmore canister that I lugged around the rest of the house weren't working and I was expecting weekend visitors soon. The Shark is two vacuums in one- a swivel upright with beater option for rugs and has a roll around base and detachable canister. I have oriental and shag rugs throughout the house on hardwood floors. There's an attachment that makes it easy to switch back and forth between rugs and floors without turning the vacuum off. I have arthritis, herniated discs, and asthma. I was skeptical because it's bagless and was concerned debris would fly around when being emptied- this has not been a problem. The vacuum cleaner is not heavy nor did it even come close to tipping over. I am able to detach the canister easily to vacuum steps and walk around using the attachments. The suction is POWERFUL and easily adjustable. I couldn't believe all the dirt and cat hair it picked up on rugs that my other vacuum cleaners indicated were "clean". I highly recommended this vacuum cleaner and suggest reading the instructions. There's a lot going with this vacuum!!!

    • Best Vacuum Ever!

      It is very embarrassing how much dirt this vacuum has picked up, that my old vacuum missed. Easy to maneuver. Great design. LOVE this vacuum!!!

    • Soo glad I went with Shark...

      Was originally going for a refurbished Dyson but this was the same price and new so I finally replaced my tank of a Hoover. Shoulda done it ages ago because it's amazing how much more this thing picks up. Easy to maneuver, and alot lighter. A couple negatives....The cord isn't as long as I'd hoped and loses even more length when I attach it at the top to keep it out of the way. It could be because it's new but it also has a loud squeal when I engage the brush and has fallen down more than once - it seems to be top heavy and you have to have it lined up just so or over it goes. Overall glad I upgraded. Well worth the money.

    • Love my new Shark vacuum!

      I have only 2 suggestions to improve this vacuum. An auto-retracting cord would be nice, and I have a hard time keeping the attachments getting the attachments to stay in the holders. Even without these fixes, this is a great vacuum - even better than the Oreck I used for 15 yrs!

    • This vacuum is a sleek powerhouse.

      My previous vacuum was needing some repair and just seemed too bulky for me now. A friend had gotten a Shark and commented on how great it was. Looked up some reviews which were all positive. I am very pleased with this vacuum because it is sleek and easy to use whether the upright or the canister feature. The bagless complete seal dust cup is easy to empty. I also like the floor nozzle that works on all surfaces without needing adjustment since I have hardwood floors, area carpet, and carpet runners. With 2 dogs and 3 cats there is a lot of fur to be vacuumed up and the power brush does a great job cleaning their beds.

    • VERY happy with my Shark Rotator!

      I did some internet research before making this purchase and the only thing that worried me was the comment that it was top-heavy and tipped easily. My old vacuum had the same problem,but I dealt with it because it cleaned so well. I have two large indoor/outdoor dogs that shed, so I am very particular about the cleaning power and results I get. I was pleasantly surprised when I found that the Shark Rotator was not as tipsy as I feared. In fact, it hasn't tipped on me yet. And it cleans fabulously and at a much better price point than the Dyson. That is the very reason I looked into this purchase was because of claims that it was just as good or better than the more expensive Dyson. I have already recommended this to my friends!

    • Works great

      Works Sooo good. The first time I used it I couldn't believe how much kitty fur came up out of my carpet. Lots of useful attachments came with it too. Money well spent!

    • Fantastic vacuum.

      I used my new vacuum for the first time today . Wow ! I have 6 house cats & vacuumed just the livingroom & I could not believe the amount of hair it picked up. It is easy to manuver with the swivel function & not heavy & cumberson to push around. I can't wait to try all the dusting & cleaning tools on my ceiling fans, baseboards & much more. I think this is going to be the best vacuum I have ever used & I have had quite a few over the years. Love it.
