Shark Rocket Professional Lightweight Vacuum w/ Attachments
Everytime I use it, it clogs in the tube by the handle. I am constantly cleaning it out and making a huge mess. I have owned Sharks before and loved them. This is just a bad design and I can not express my disappointment in the amount of money I spent on this product.
I loved this vacuum when I got it. This made my second Shark vacuum. However, It quit working after about 2 months. There are a lot of great reviews on this so maybe I just got a dud, who knows. I'm outside of my 30 day return window so now I just have a $180.00 piece of plastic.
Great vacuum for the price
Easy to use on both carpet and tile floors. Very satisfied with this purchase
Shark Rocket Professional
This Vacuum has been the best I've owned & is everything that was told. Thank You QVC and love shopping with you. Also want to thank everyone who have been so helpful & kind when I call. Bless You All
Really like how easy it is to push, swivel, empty the canister, use attachments. Really good suction. So glad I made the purchase.
This vacuum is awesome. Its so powerful it pulls itself across the carpet. It looks good too. I like things that look nice. Its so cool, light and easy to move around. LOVE IT!
Vacuum Propels Itself!
I was somewhat worried about having to replace my original Oreck vacuum cleaner (recommended by my allergy/asthma specialist) with another brand, being it was 20+ years old and almost nothing is made as well these days as things were a couple of decades ago and more. Plus, I have asthma and allergies (and we have a cat, whom I'm allergic to, but my cardiologist argues with my allergist that she's good for my high blood pressure...and he wins, obviously. Both my husband and I have physical disabilities, which makes it even harder to do such physical things in our older age.
But let me tell you, this Shark vacuum is a godsend! It propels itself and will nearly take off on you if you don't hold on to the handle when you turn it on. Since I am the one with asthma, my husband does the vacuuming. And he loves the Shark, which doesn't tire him out using it. You can really tell the difference in our carpets since we got the Shark. And my breathing has gotten better since he's been able to vacuum more often.
As for those who complained about having to empty the "small" canister so often, my husband had to empty it each time he vacuumed a room the first time he used it. After cleaning the carpets in every rom 2-3 times, he can now do the whole 2 BR apartment and just empty the canister once afterward. That shows how much dust and dirt was built up in the carpets in the almost 5 years we've lived here and how badly the Oreck had gotten after 20+ years of use.
Another positive thing to mention is that the Shark vacuum came in as first choice in 2014 surveys for customer satisfaction. My husband saw it at a store we shop at monthly for around $350 right after we got ours. And, with value pays, there's no way you can't win by purchasing this Shark vacuum. We love it!
Depends what you are trying to accomplish...
I have had my Shark for a year now (I hate writing reviews before I really have a chance to use the product). For me, it is just perfect. It is lightweight and does a great job on my carpets. I am amazed every time I sweep at just how much dirt it captures in the easy to empty canister. Where it falls down for me is along the edges and on hard surfaces so if this is what you are looking for I would keep looking. I think it just lacks a little power (and it is not because it is clogged or anything- it has always been like this) to pick up anything along the edge, no matter how tight you can get. This means I always have to pull out the hose- which is pretty easy- each time I vacuum so I can get the area next to the baseboard. I thought it would be different on my wood floors but it is not. I am not impressed how it woks on hard surface at all.
I would buy it again, because for me, I only have 2 rooms with carpet so the pros outweigh the cons.
Best Vacuum Ever!
I have owned almost every brand of vacuum known to human kind. This is the very best one I have ever owned! It does an amazing job of cleaning up cat hair. I have 2 cats whose hobby it is to shed. No problem...Out comes the Shark and the hair is gone. Love it , Love it, Love it!!!
Received the vacuum faster than expected. The directions and set up are a breeze. This vacuum is much quieter than our previous dirt devil. I was able to notice that the sealed canister did not allow any dust to escape the dirt catcher. The Rocket is very nimble, cleans the floors quite well, and seems to have a almost motorized drive. The fit, part quality, and features are excellent, and I believe that this vacuum will easily last longer that the warranty period of 5 years. The cord is of good quality and is long enough for our needs. The canister does separate like the more expensive Shark models. Some people might find that there is not as many accessories as other more expensive models, but I doubt I would use most of them. We found this vacuum to be a excellent value and the 5 pay makes it even nicer.
I purchased this after our vacuum cleaner suddenly died, and it couldn't have come at a worse time, with Christmas being just around the corner and guests arriving later in the week! A couple months ago I purchased a Shark handheld vacuum from QVC for my car, and it's been fantastic, so I didn't hesitate in ordering an upright from Shark. I ordered the upright on a Sunday and prayed that it would arrive within a week. To my surprise, it came on December 24!
The vacuum is very easy to assemble--it took about 10 seconds. I was concerned that with the Shark being somewhat small and lightweight, it would lack a punch in vacuuming my floors, but I was wrong! My husband and I were amazed at what it picked up (that my other vacuum did not). It made the carpets look almost new and plush again. It is easy to maneuver around. I wish, however, that it came with a little bag of sorts to hold the attachments, but this isn't a deal breaker. If it's gotten my husband to enjoy vacuuming the house, it's a winner!
For those on the wait list! Its worth the wait!!!!
