Rated 4 out of 5Â by BB99 Very Pleased Overall
This is my first Shark vacuum and I am very impressed. I was shocked by the amount of dirt and dust that was collected. The suction is great and can be easily adjusted. I like the portable lift away feature and the pet power brush does an excellent job on the stairs. Because of my allergy to dust, I am not a fan of bagless vacuums, but I was willing to try it for a highly rated and affordable brand.
It is not self-propelled which is not an issue for me, but if you feel you do not have much arm strength, vacuuming will give you a workout. I also tried using this in "bare floor" mode with the roller brush turned off. It didn't pick up the dirt as I expected. I have not tried the dust away attachment yet.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by LaneyQ Very well engineered and substantial
I wasn't sure what to expect when I ordered on line, but my first thought, as I unpacked and easily clicked the parts together, was ..."Hey! This is very well engineered ... and weighs more than I thought it would." It cleans very thoroughly (I was shocked at the dirt my other vac had missed) and the attachments cover every cleaning possibility. Some "gotchas" ... the dusting brush isn't very substantial, but should last, given reasonable care; you are always pushing or carrying the motor around, so if you have wrist/hand/arthritis problems, it might be a concern. Over all, I'm pleased with this purchase and almost look forward to vacuuming ;-)
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Trishndamon Love this vacuum
I was using a bagged canister vacuum that lost most of its suction power, wand wouldnt stand up - fell down and hit things, and the wheels would fall off. I have a shark wet mop that I love to decided to try this vacuum. I LOVE this vacuum! The first time I used it, it picked up so much the old vacuum missed. Not only that, I was able to vacuum between items without having to move, like it did before. I do miss that I cant get under furniture like before but I am adapting. I have also noticed that while on tile/hardwood, the decibels is great but when you vacuum carpet, it appears to be a bit loud. Still would buy another if I needed to!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Brodiewood Disappointing.
This was a disappointing purchase and in fact has already been returned. The design is quite poor when utilizing the accessories, the dusting brush in particular. The angle of the handle limits the flexibility one would otherwise have when attaching the brush to a hose. More importantly, however, was overall performance. I have two dogs and knew immediately, based on the amount of dirt and dog hair in the canister, that my floor couldn't possibly be completely clean. To validate, I ran my Dirt Devil over the same area, and it picked up quite a bit that was left behind by the Shark. I'm very thankful for Kohl's generous (and realistic) return policies.
