I purchased this hand held vac, to try to keep up,with my new puppy. I am handicapped and keep it inside the seat of my walker. Every time I need to pick up dirt and crumbs, it is right there at my finger tips. Great suction power, easy to empty. I just charge it up now and then and it's good to go.
I love this vacuum; it works great, however, it dies after only about 10 minutes of use (with a full charge!). I would love for it to have the ability to be used while plugged in so that the charge would last long enough for me to vacuum fully before it dies.
This Shark Pet Perfect II Handvac was reported on a local news station in my Area. The station has a "consumer" segment from time-to-time and reports on products recommended by Consumers' Report. I was not looking for a hand vacuum at the time. However, I have a cat and the cleaning of cat hair is constant. Based on the research findings for the vacuum, I thought I would give it a chance; I'm glad I did. It has good suction power, it's light, and easy to use. It comes a charger and attachments for general use, furniture, and dusting. Cleaning the filter is easy. I recommend it.
Other reviews were so flattering. I have found this to be somewhat of a let down. If you had a glass or wood area with crumbs it would do but we have rugs, runners, a cat and it seems like whenever we try to use it, it falls slightly short.
I have both a Dyson animal and a Shark full size vac. With 3 cats, 2 large dogs and 2500 sq. ft. to clean I am always looking for ways to make my life easier. Enter the Shark Handvac. What a remarkable machine. I no longer have to drag out my large vacuums to clean up crumbs on the kitchen floor or "dust bunnies" that gather in my bathroom. This vac has unbelievable suction and a long battery life. It also comes with the power head that picks up pet fur on furniture. I was absolutely amazed that all the fur was cleaned up. This little machine is a real time saver. The price was reasonable and besides what price can you put on extra time. I highly recommend this vacuum even if you don't have pets.
I love my Shark! It picks up all the dust, kitty litter and debris. No more sweeping and fighting with the "moving" dust bunnies on a count of my ceiling fan. It's small enough for just the room I need it in. My only gripe is that I can't dust my entire room without needing to recharge the machine. I just wish the device held a charge better.
I purchased this for my daughter to replace the one she had and used until it wore out. She uses it every day and loves it. It's also handy to buy the replacement filters, etc, so you don't have to worry about needing them and then not have them on hand! She recommends this to all her friends who have pets. It's not too heavy and stores out of the way without taking up a lot of space.
I purchased this cordless handvac to pick up my dogs hair in my car. It works better than I thought it would. The hair on the floor mats get picked up with the revolving brush piece with ease. The mats actually look new and freshly brushed. I am very happy with this cordless handvac.
