I have animals in the house. I have tile floors and hard woods. Carpet in 2 bedrooms.. I orginally purchased to use in the kitchen and living room.. I have found that the suction is great on carpets too. So convenient to grab and go.. no struggle with electric cords. The battery life is great too . I can use all over with single charge .. 1800 Sq foot.. great suction!!! Works better than my old big vacuum! !
I bought this vacuum after seeing my sister in Florida using hers. We both hate bulky heavy vacuums and this one only weighs 7 lbs. and does floors and rugs. I will admit it doesn't have the lifting and strong power of my large vacuum (which I ofcorse still have) but this is just the thing for my more often cleaning. It also travels up and down the stairs easy. I like the weight, design and overall everything about it. I got a great deal but have noticed there was only one at the price I paid. Too bad. Still a great buy.

I have been searching for a nice cordless vacuum for a long time. This one exceeds my expectations so far. I have all tile, laminate and some area rugs and this works awesome on all. It can clean my whole house twice on one charge, but I do only have 800 square feet. It is light weight, has a swivel head and holds a lot before it needs to be dumped. Also so so easy to dumb the trap out. Just push a button on the bottom of the pull out tank and it falls out into the trash. I really can't say anything bad about this and the price is awesome too!! Also I have a dog and 2 cats and it picks up their hair out of the area rugs really well.
I PURCHASED THIS VACUUM AS IT WAS ADVERTISED AS SHARK SV1106. I WAS SHIPPED A SHARK SV1106N WHICH IS A DIFFERENT MODEL. HAVING OWNED A SV1106 I LIKED IT AND NEEDED ANOTHER ONE. OVERSTOCK EVEN ANSWERED A QUESTION ABOUT THE MODEL NUMBER AND SAID THEY HAD NO SV1106N MACHINES IN STOCK. NO WHERE DOES IT MENTION THIS IS A DIFFERENT MACHINE WITH A SMALLER BATTERY AND LESS POWER. I A VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED IN OVERSTOCK FOR THE FALSE ADVERTISEMENT. I CAN SAY THAT THIS MACHINE DOES NOT PICK UP AS WELL AS MY SHARK SV1106 BUT ONLY TIME WILL TELL ABOUT THE DURABILITY.
I purchased this vacuum for my upstairs bedrooms so my children could use it. I allowed it to charge overnight before using it for the first time, I was disappointed with the quality, based on the reviews I read I expected more. I have a Dyson downstairs so I may be spoiled. The charge didn't hold long, I was able to vacuum 2 of the 3 bedrooms and had to recharge. I am returning this product. My canister Dyson is 10 years old and 100% better than this vacuum, if I kept this I would have to replace it in a year than again and again, I'd rather spend the extra $250 once on a quality product I will be happy with for 10+ years.

I've bought probably 4 or 5 other cordless vacuums promising to work properly. This vacuum actually does work. i have 2 dogs and they shed alot. I've had this unit for about a year now and use it EVERY night to make a quick run thru the house. It has NEVER failed to do all it promised. Well worth 100 bucks....
The convenience and use of this vac is great. It charges quickly and goes anywhere. Unfortunately the suction is not all it should be, and in a couple of weeks it just runs over the stuff to be vacuumed and at best spits it out the back end. The beaters work great but the suction just doesn't last.
Finally someone came up with a rechargeable vacuum cleaner that really works!! It is not an exaggeration to say I have been looking for something like this for many years. I have tried different brands even an Electrolux rechargeable only to be disappointed. Not so with this shark. It picks up very well especially on hard floors. It picks up things I never though a rechargable would and does nearly as good a job as my whole house vacuum on the hard floors. I have dogs in the house and it cleans up after them very well! The design is good and it is super easy to empty out when needed. I would buy this vacuum again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it to anyone.
We have been very happy with "Shark" products. This one, however, doesn't seem to be holding a charge for very long. The instructions do indicate that it may take severaL cycles of re-charging for the battery to be fully operational, so it may correct itself. If not, we will have to send it back.
I am not someone who normally has feelings for appliances, but this vacuum cleaner (which I have only had briefly) -- I love it. I wish I had not spent so many years with other vacuum cleaners. It's the easiest to use, most effective, comfortable, ingenious, and attractive vacuum cleaner ever.
I needed to buy a new cordless vacuum after my Hoover Lynx was damaged. While I liked that cordless as well, I find this Shark cordless to be much more convenient to use. I especially love the charging dock, which keeps the vacuum always ready. The Hoover was good, but I didn't like how you used it until the separate battery would run out of juice and then, take 3-4 hours to recharge.
Not too loud, easy to maneuver, light yet powerful (for what it is), easy to empty, charge lasts plenty long for my purposes. I was looking for something cordless and quiet. Although it's not quiet like a restaurant electric crumb catcher, it is quieter than most hand vacs. I let the unit fully charge, then did three rooms and two hallways and that was all I wanted to do at one time. Still had plenty of charge, didn't loose it's power. I don't have cut or shag type carpet. Everything I have is low and woven or bare floor. And this vac did a great job. And I like how the handle swivels with the vac head. Makes turning a breeze. The back wheels do lift up when you pull back. I just modified my technique and it's not an issue. The only problems I see is the charger cord could be longer, and the button on the vac head got in the way going under cabinets. Neither is a big deal at all. Now lets see how well this little guy holds up to my abuse....
Revising my comments - I used it sparingly for about 2 months and it stopped working altogether. While it worked, it was very good for what I needed. But now I am stuck with something that doesn't work, and have to purchase something else. This is the second Shark vacuum I have purchased that did this, but the first was many years ago and I was willing to give it another try, hoping their track record had improved.
