Shark Rocket Professional Lightweight Vacuum w/ Attachments
I cannot believe what an amazing vacuum this is! Had an Oreck from QVC, and this is just so powerful in suction! Love how the head swivels and all the small details I never even thought of. The lights to help see in dark spaces, the detachable handle, the accessories, the ease of disposing of the waste, and even cleaning the filter. I am truly impressed overall with this machine. It does the job quickly and well. Even assembly was so fast (and believe me, this girl cannot put anything together quickly). Only points to note...It IS a little heavier than I was anticipating. I know they tell what the vacuum weighs, but seeing the picture of the girl holding the vacuum gives the illusion of the vacuum being very light. It's by NO means monster weight, but it certainly isn't feather light either. I weigh 110 lbs, 5'7 and 37 yrs old. I do have some back problems, and a 6 yr old that I have to keep myself strong for. Don't expect you're going to pick this up with no effort. Second item to note. I have long hair and checked the brush tonite after using the vacuum a few times. I had to clean the brush at the bottom. It was all caught up in there. Which is where it's supposed to when you clean a carpet...but, make sure you clean the bottom brush regularly, or it will become a massive project one day. Other than that, LOVE the vacuum.
Hmmm...Not really that impressed.
To begin I'm comparing to my old Orek XL. Had to replace due to dust leaking from bag.
BUT...this is by NO MEANS as lightweight. Not even a question.
It IS quite maneuverable, and I like the swivel head.
The Power Brushes are really strong, and it propels forward very nicely. You 'will' however get quite a "work-out" pulling it back. But it works very well on the area rugs in my home.
My BIGGEST COMPLAINT is that there is almost ZERO SUCTION WITHOUT THE POWER BRUSHES ON. It will NOT clean your edges ladies, and will not even pick up a sesame seed unless directly on top of it on flat floor.
I'm not sure I'll keep it, but I really do seem to be the odd man out from most of the reviews.
Sorry, but I have to mention what I think every time I use this cute little sweeper.
I've gone through a number of vacuums and finally decided to give Shark a try. The Rocket is fantastic! It's a powerful machine that cleans beautifully. Love the attachments. Extra power when vacuuming the carpets is a huge plus. Thank you Shark and QVC for having this item.
Great value for the amount paid - works amazingly well
I ordered the Shark Rocket Professional Lightweight Vacuum for my mother. She wanted a new and lightweight vacuum, because her old one was not working that well anymore. So, I went on the internet and did some research for her. The Shark Rocket Pro Lightweight vacuum was the best one for it's size and weight.
I also use the this vacuum myself and it works great, it picks everything up and it is also easy to clean. It was also very easy to assemble as well, right out of the box. The Rocket Pro lightweight also handles very well. I couldn't believe that a small vacuum cleaner could be so powerful, excellent product!
I have had my new Rocket for 4 days. My husband and I have both ran it. Its still early yet to say I love it, it does take some getting use to. Pro's: the long cord it great, head lights I really like. Cons: Not sure it works that great on bare floors, I kept having to go over it to get it picked up (kitty litter, dust under bed). I am going to try it again later in the week and then decide if its worth it. On the carpet, it ran nice,I like the smoothness, it picked up well on the carpet. (I have more bare floors than carpet). I like the ease of the wand and using the attachments. Its louder than I thought it would be, but that is not a pro or con, just a personal thing. I will try to amend my review after the next time I use it. Right now I am up in the air on it. Its more money than I usually pay for a vacuum, so I wanted to love it the first time I used it and I didnt.. not yet anyway. I will give it a second chance before I decide.
I love this vacuum! the suction is unbelievable, light weight, easy to clean, add attachments, remove canister. I have tried the Dyson and prefer this hands down. My daughter also purchased and is very pleased. I would recommend this to all!
First time loving to clean
MId sixties woman; always gone with the cheapest vacuum, believing there couldn't be much difference. I'm all smiles today, as this lil rocket arrived and you would have thought it was Christmas morning, the way I tore into the package and hooked it all together and got to cleaning. So grateful for easy-pay. Won't discuss what it picked up in a very small area of carpet that appeared 'clean'...this one is a keeper! Love the swivel of it and the compact head that can get into smaller places and under things.
I had reservations buying a shark and wanting a dyson, but im glad i went with the shark. I bought it as a family x-mas present. Very simple to put together and i love how it vacuums. I love it
Best Purchase Ever
I have purchased various high end brand vacuum cleaners in the past and was somewhat hesitant due to the lightweight design. This is the best vacuum cleaner purchase for the price and quality. My first time using it was amazing, I could not believe the amount of dust and dirt that came from both hardwood and carpet areas!
I got tired of pushing around a cumbersome upright and the vacuum bag at times gave an odor when in use. The motor is powerful and out performed an expensive upright vacuum cleaner that I just used several days ago. For the price and lightweight design you can't beat it. Gets under furniture and cabinets with ease and the proof is when you empty the container!
Glad I made the purchase and will recommend it to others.
Right out of the box.....easy snap on, ready to go. Great suction and maneuverability .I love this machine. Except the arthritus in my right hand.....cannot handle the weight. I must return this for the lighter weight model. I highly recommend this product.
I received the Shark Rocket yesterday and put it to work immediately. I couldn't believe how much dirt and dust it vacuumed up even after cleaning with my Shark professional canister. I BOUGHT it because I have severe arthritis and it is hard to clean even with the canister. This is a breeze to use. It practically runs itself a cross the floor. I actually had fun cleaning and this little sucker is very powerful. NOn need to spend a fortune on it's expensive rival. Really delivers what it says. I can't believe I fell in love with a vacuum
