Finally someone came up with a rechargeable vacuum cleaner that really works!! It is not an exaggeration to say I have been looking for something like this for many years. I have tried different brands even an Electrolux rechargeable only to be disappointed. Not so with this shark. It picks up very well especially on hard floors. It picks up things I never though a rechargable would and does nearly as good a job as my whole house vacuum on the hard floors. I have dogs in the house and it cleans up after them very well! The design is good and it is super easy to empty out when needed. I would buy this vacuum again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it to anyone.
