Rated 5 out of 5Â by KimberlyKTX Love it!
I have had a lot of vacuums over the years, but I have never had one that I am SO happy with. The Shark is easy to use, picks up EVERYTHING, and I love the bare floor attachment! I don't know if this is self propelled (I really have not had time to read the entire user's manual) but I do know that it took off on its' own when I turned it on for the first time! My son is convinced that it does that because it has so much suction, all I know is that my floors have never been cleaner! I highly recommend this vacuum if you are looking for something that is light-weight, easy to maneuver, and does the job.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by tootsie05 light weight easy to use
like the light weight and ease of use, has great suction and picks up a lot. It is a lot smaller and by that I mean it's narrower than my last vacuum. I would of liked a better brush head at the base, if you have different heights of carpets, it does not work as good as our bigger vacuum. Like the swivel of the vacuum, it's very easy to go arround furniture. In all a very good vacuum for the price I paid. Great for smaller spaces, easy for younger teens to use, easy to empty-no bags. only problem so far is that the cord is too low on the vacuum and you have to always hold on to it or it gets in the way of the vacuum. Would of liked the cord to a have been attached higher up on the vacuum.

Really, we're in awe. It arrived in 3 days. I put it together and vacuumed a 6x9 rug in our living room, just to give it a quick test. The amount of dirt that I dumped out of the cannister (not compressed, loose) was the size of a regulation football, seriously. It didn't look dirty. I schooled myself on what makes a vacuum cleaner perform well. It'ts all about Cubic Feet of air moved per minute. Not watts, not suction, not rpm, not hp. Evidently Sharp made the head of their vacuum the right size to accomplish that. Not many things nowadays exceed our expectations, this vacuum however, does.

I am a person who takes a long time making a decision. I took a while to buy this, kept looking at reviews and finally purchased 2 months ago. I've been using now regularly and love it. It's lightweight, easy to maneuver around the floor to carpet and back. Lightweight enough to carry by the handle as well. Nice long cord. Really good suction. Easy to clean out the container. I like how you can vacuum from floor to carpet with that one switch; and on wood floors...even quieter! I didn't realize it has a self-propelled feature on the carpet..or maybe that is just the force of the scrubbers pulling it, but it's noticeable (and welcomed). I was worried it would topple over as the base is small but it has never done that. The size of the vacuum head is smaller than my old carpet, but I really love that as well, it gets in between my chairs in the kitchen without having to move them. Because it is so much lighter than my old bigger vacuum, along with the smaller base, it really just glides over the floors quickly. Our dog sheds a LOT, this vacuum has been wonderful in keeping up with all the hair. As others have mentioned, when you see what this vacuum pulls up, you will be amazed. The attachment hose is kind of short (if you vacuum walls and celings), but since 99.9% of it for me is floors, I don't mind that much. I lift the base when I need to reach. Stairs are amazing, lifting just the top piece...works great! I really love my vacuum...no regrets!
