love this vacume, best vacume I have ever had. I was never so happy and grossed out to see all the dirt it was sucking out of my rugs. I love being able to turn the brush off and vacume my hard wood floors. I no longer have to sweep I can just vacume it all. It is much quieter than my last Bissell I owned, my pets don't even run from this vacume. U love the extra cleaning attachments and the extra ling reach. I know other people have complained about vacume falling over when using the extra long reach wand that does not bug me cause my much heavier vacume fell over more than this lighter weight shark does, so that was not a issue. It sucks up everything a carpet traps. So very very happy. Loving this brand right now. I also own the pro pocket steam mop and very happy with it too.
