I bought this Shark vacuum after reading all the reviews. I have a multi-cat household, already own a Dyson Animal and a Bissell, which both work ok. The main and most important reason I looked at this vacuum was its weight. The other vacuums are heavy and hard to maneuver, and my back hurt after pushing them around for only a few minutes. The Shark, on the other hand, is lightweight, has the suction of the Dyson, et al, is small enough to get into tight spaces and around furniture, and the dust bin empties like a dream! I found myself having to pull the compacted cat hair and other gross stuff out of the Dyson and Bissell, then getting dust and dirt all over me and the floor. I have mainly hardwood floors, and they are easy to clean with this Shark. AND, it REALLY DOES pick up CAT LITTER!!! The other vacuums just blow it away or bounce it around. This is a lifesaver for me with all the cats scattering litter everywhere. I haven't used all the attachments yet, but the ones I've used are easy on and off and work great. The cord on this vacuum is certainly long enough to reach 2 or 3 rooms, but I find, like others, it topples rather easily when using an attachment--but so did the other vacuums. Finally, for the performance of this vacuum, you simply cannot beat the price, so I think the value here is great. I would definitely recommend it and will buy another one when I need to. And, thank you Overstock.com for continuing to offer these values!
