I've never been one to spend allot of money on things but figured what the hay especially since I can do installments.
Well I have 3 dogs and 4 cats I first vacuumed with my dirt devil which got the hair then I went over it with the Shark and boy was I shocked so much dust and fine dirt easily over a pound and I only did 1 pass I usually do several in different directions. I highly recommend this to anyone plus it has a setting to do hard floors tile, linoleum etc, super long cord and big canister. I'm actually looking forward to vacuuming

I had heard so much about the Shark brand but had never tried it, I was actually looking at another brand when I saw this one. I'm so glad that I did, it was cheaper than the other but the quality is great. The suction is great (I have 2 small dogs that seem to shed all the time) and the swivel head makes it easy to get into places that others can't. The super strong hose and attachments are an added bonus. I just can't say enough good things about this.

Great Vacuum. Wonderful on pet hair, I have 2 dogs, 2 cats and a ferret and it works great. Easy to empty. I am handicapped and it is easy for me to use and get around with. I would recommend for anyone. Love it.

Assembly was quick and easy to start with. The motor is very quiet compared to other vacuum cleaners I have had in the past. The toggle switch to turn beater bar on/off is conveniently located at your fingertips. The swivel action makes it a breeze to clean around furniture and in corners. Suction on this thing is amazing! And if it is sucking a bit too hard you can slide a switch -again conveniently located at fingertips- and reduce the suction, like when doing a small area rug. I have hardwood and ceramic tile with the exception of bedrooms and this vacuum works very well picking up even the tiny particles on the floor in just one pass which makes it worth the money to me! If you are thinking of purchasing this, go for it! You will not be sorry.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DonB Excellent vacuum
First decent vacuum I've ever owned in over 50 years. Does everything I need it to do....bare wood floors, thick carpet, indoor-outdoor carpet, dog hairs, spilled messes...only thing is you need to use a little common sense and keep it reasonably clean and empty. It's not a armored tank but it's the best in it's class in my opinion. My step-mom has a $1500 Kirby and she asks me to come bring my Shark to vacuum a spot for her. Great machine.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Minnesota customer Good but not GreatI
I brought this vacuum over a year ago and the suction is impressive and continues to be so.
It came with an attachment to use on bare floors so that you can get under chairs, sofa, etc. BUT there's no attachment for carpet so forget about cleaning under beds and furniture if you have carpet. I contacted Shark via email to see if the straight suction nozzle that goes with the Shark Rotator 3 in 1 lift away model could be ordered for THIS model, They told me their parts are not interchangeable from one model to another. So now I have to purchase a separate vacuum to clean under the beds, etc. Also, the flexible hose is VERY stiff and doesn't reach very far so the unit tips over easily when using it with the attachments.

In our home a vacuum is used at least once and many days twice a day. It gets a workout! Between two inside german shepherds and grandkids, it has work to do. I previously owned a Dyson but replaced it with this Shark. Am I glad I did? Am I pleased? You bet! The Shark has done everything I've asked it to. It's a breeze to maneuver on carpets which my Dyson wasn't. On bare floors I no longer have to chase dog fur across the floor. It stays there until the Shark sweeps it up. The Dyson vented in a way that many times I had to chase what I was trying to vacuum. The amount of dirt this Shark has pulled out of the carpet is either amazing or disgusting depending on your viewpoint. Ill go with amazing so I can overlook what had been laying in the carpet! It's a great product that im in love with.

I purchased this vacuum a year ago and it has been amazing. We are a household of 6, with a dog and a cat, plus lots of traffic throughout the day. It handles the pet hair with no problem on both the carpet and my wood floors. It has great suction and is very easy to empty the container. It was very simple to put together and I love how you can remove the canister to clean stairs or places higher up. I also appreciate that when the entire unit is completely upright the brush stops spinning. Years ago my husband set our previous vacuum on a chair to reach something higher and the brush spun burning a hole in the fabric before we realized it, so that feature is well appreciated in my home! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this vacuum to a friend and have been nothing but pleased with this purchase.
