I am 100% satisfied with this vacuum. I used to own a Dyson Ball Animal--and this Shark is even better than the Dyson, and the price is better too. I have a cat and a boyfriend with allergies, since I got this vacuum, he says his allergies are better. I used the pet-hair hand-tool thing on the afghan on the couch and it pulled out sooo much hair and lint! The pet-hair hand-tool is awesome because it has a rotating brush head that really picks up cat hair--and dog hair too--I suppose. The suction is unbelievable. I started freaking out about how much dirt was coming out of my carpets and furniture and vacuumed my whole house. I like that the vacuum traps allergens with several filters--that are washable and reusable! And there is the "on-off" switch, you can turn that switch to a 'bare floor' setting--so that the brush head on the vacuum doesn't spin---that avoids dust, dirt and cat-litter getting scattered everywhere--it's just the suction going on. When you go back on the carpet, move the switch so the roller brush starts moving again. I have noticed my whole house is less dusty. From someone else's post I discovered that you have to take the whole dirt canister off--which is really easy to do---and dump it outside, in order to fully remove the allergens from your house. If you open the dirt canister and dump it in your garbage can inside your house, you just let them all escape back into the air--and those dust particles are very tiny--like a talc powder. I love this vacuum, it is the best one I've ever bought, I would wholly recommend it to anyone.
I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a very clean home. I use this vacuum daily and my house is clean. The dirt I vacuumed up the first time I used it was an OH MY GOSH moment. It has great hose suction power. I am so pleased I purchased this vacuum. Over all cleaning is fantastic.
I have been through many vacuums for our rental unit. Love this one. Half of the floors in the unit are tiled and with previous vacuums used to have to sweep after I vacuumed.. Not with the one.. It is great..only neg is the suction on rugs is extremely strong .. A little hard to push sometimes, but overall great vacuum and the hand held tools are easy to use
This vacuum really sucks!!!! lol ! This is the best "House Tool" ever!!!! I can not believe what was in the canister after I put the vacuum together! which by the way ladies took approx. 6 minutes to do! Awesome product! Also, a special shout out to the Overstock crew. This is the BEST company to do business with. The employee's and ( even the CEO) Cares about what job they are performing. Thank You Thank You!
I love the design of this vacuum. It has great suction and works like magic on the pet hair. The smaller, swivel head gets into places that I couldn't reach before and it's lightweight enough to lift it on the stairs. I like it very much.
Putting the vacuum was very easy. The suction is very good and it is easy to push and pull with the swivel feature of the vacuum. The cord needs to be longer, hence the "good" rating. It is easy to empty the dirt cylinder, with re-mounting an easy task. All in all, a good vacuum so far.
