It is a shame to see the negative reviews on this vacuum. I have been cleaning professionally for over 10 years. I have used over 20 different vacuums and none can compare to this. The vacuum has the edge on suction, it picks up what other vacuums leave behind. Have tried this test with several vacuums, using them and then the shark afterwards and always with the same results, a dust cup full of dirt the other vacuums did not pick up. Bare floors are a breeze, just remember to keep the vacuum inclined, the vent on the front throws out some air that can blow dust around if not inclined. I had to actually try to blow the dust around because it is natural to keep the vacuum inclined solving this potential problem before it happens. I was in the habit of using my clients vacuums in the past and have refused to use any of them in the present. I bring in my shark all the time and show clients how much more dirt it collects after using thier vacuums. It is quiet! I can actully carry on a converstion with clients and not stop the vacuum. I have taken the cord and wrapped it loosely around the hook for it on the back of the machine to prevent it from from pulling away from the machine. I just left a short employ at a nursing home and have convinced them to buy the shark for their facility. They will or have purchased about 7 of the machines. This machines is the cadillac of vacuums and I have the experience to back it up!
