This is a great vacuum and very reasonably priced. It is lightweight, easy to use, easy to carry up and down stairs. I love the "lift away" feature--- very convenient for all kinds of vacuuming jobs. I liked it so much, I bought one for my daughter, too.
This is a really great vacuum. I'm always amazed at how much it vacuums up. I've never had a vacuum that worked so amazingly well. We do have to wash off the filter on occasion, probably because we tend to overfill the container (like I said I'm amazed it vacuums up so much).
I've been using my Shark NV356 for over 2 years now and love it. This is the best vacuum cleaner I've ever owned and I've owned several over the years including a Dyson. I did purchase an extra set of filters for this so I would be able to always have one set clean and ready to use when I was hand washing the other. I love the Shark brand so much I'm thinking about buying a Shark cordless vacuum.
Have had this vacuum for a couple years now and it performs great. Easy to handle and clean. When we got it there was a problem with the power brush drive. A phone call later and a replacement power brush was on the way no charge and it arrived in a couple days.No problems since! Great for picking up dog hair in the carpet. Great vacuum, great service, great value!
Given that I bought this second hand, I am very impressed by the quality. Thus far it has out performed a Miele unit that I had for a short time. My only complaint is that the cord is in an awkward place on the machine and often gets caught under the wheels while using it; even when properly holding it.
This Shark has been my favorite purchase on overstock. It works as well, if not better, than the leading brand Animal version. We have a cat so we also step on a lot of cat litter. After over a year of frequent use, this vacuum picks up the cat littler of of hard wood floors like a dream. The suction is wonderful. Also, a great vacuum to use on stairs! Very portable and most importantly for me, durable.
I've had this for over a year. It keeps up with two german shepherds! I like the option of "brush roll on" which gives the machine forward momentum and makes it easier to use. Its easy to disconnect the floor attachment to work with the canister and hose. nice modern design.
I debated for a long time on ordering this vacuum, but I'm so glad we did. It's light weight and easy to use and works well on all surfaces--from cork in the kitchen to tile in the living room to wood in the entry to carpet upstairs. I used to hate vacuuming, and now I actually enjoy it. I'm very pleased with this purchase.
