Rated 4 out of 5Â by TKelly Very nice machine
This vacuum has very good suction and navigates easily around furniture. It is slightly heavy but not unreasonable. The canister is really a breeze to get on and off and empties with a button push so your hands never have to get dirty. The hose is extra long and has a handle that lets you easily and quickly pull it out for quick use and goes back on just as easy. It has several attachments for various jobs. Overall I really like this machine and would buy it again. As with all machines we will have to see how long it lasts and it would be great if manufacturers and stores would lower the prices on these vacuums they are all over priced.

I am returning this vacuum for one reason only. It doesn't work on low pile carpet or hardwood floors. I knew through research the reviews of hardwoods was poor, but I didn't care because I take care of those floors in a different way. BUT,,, I have very low pile carpet almost equal to a hardwood floor. It does not pick up well at all. I vacuumed with my old vacuum (which I could not stand because it was so hard to keep clean) then I vacuumed with the shark. The Shark picked up a very little bit of dirt. The next time vacuumed with the shark first then my old vacuum, I had a bag full of dirt! bye bye
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Beagly Great Vacuum
This is the second purchase of this vacuum. I bought one for my daughter for Christmas and bought another one for my other daughter recently after her house in Houston was flooded and she lost everything. Both daughters love the vacuum. Definitely a great purchase and highly recommended.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by EleanorRigby Excellent suction, but many drawbacks.
I really wanted to love this vacuum after reading the reviews. But sadly, I am returning it.
The pick up is outstanding! I thought my carpet was clean, but this vacuum picked up so much dust and dirt, I was actually embarrassed.
One of the selling points for me was that the vacuum was lightweight. I do not find this vacuum lightweight at all. In fact, it is cumbersome to use.
There are no bumper guards, and the self propelling feature rams the vacuum into my furniture. Not good.
The lift off canister is clumsy to use. It keeps falling over. Also, the small powered stair attachment stops turning if you press at all on the carpet.
I loved the dirt pick up of this vacuum,and the swivel feature. But I really was looking for a vacuum that I would love to use. And this is not it.
