Shark Rocket Professional Lightweight Vacuum w/ Attachments
Best vaccuum ever!
I love this vacuum! I have had a wind tunnel and this is by far better! No more cleaning out the gross filter! The suction never quits no matter the amount you have already picked up!
Just received my Shark today, took it out of the box, very easy assembly. Could not believe the suction on this vacuum. I was shocked at the amount of dust in our carpet. We had to empty the canister 3 times, my husband had just vacuumed yesterday, and this was what was not picked up from our "now retired" old vacuum cleaner. I am a very satisfied customer.
I recently bought this shark rocket professional lightweight vacuum and I love it. I already have another shark vacuum ( the purple one) and I love it. the best purchase I had ever made. I wanted to upgrade to a new one so I picked this one and so glad I did. great on carpet and on vinyl floors. great suction. would highly recommend any shark vacuums. they are the best!!!!!!
So Disappointed! Thought I'd go bagless!
I read all of the reviews, compared to other products, etc., etc. and decided to order this vacuum so I didn't have to replace bags in my Oreck. I put it together and used it in a few days of receiving. I had to shove it over my carpet and my carpet is not real thick. It worked fine on a very flat carpet in my spare bedroom but not on in my living room or master bedroom. It did not pick up things that my Oreck picks up in one "sweep". The swivel head and lights are great but other than that, a definite no. Also, when I went to empty the dusk tank, it flipped open before I opened it - it did this twice as I was taking it up to empty the contents. So the dust/debris was all over the floor. Back it went to QVC.
I'll stick to my Oreck which is much lighter, easier to handle and does a good job. I just don't like replacing bags but the Oreck wins.bags or no bags!
This machine rocks
When you keep doing the same thing over, and over again expecting different results, this is the definition of insanity. Over the last 10 years I have bought four cordless vacuums. The batteries die, and are basically un-replaceable. I have four cats and a dog who were born to shed. I vacuum EVERY day. This machine has replaced three other machines I was using. I love that in the one room where I have carpet, it too is vacuumed every day now that I don't have to bring out a different machine. I love that the attachments are with the machine as I go, and can use them on the fly.
This machine picks up three times the fur that my other cordless machines did. I still have to use Swiffer sweeper to sweep under beds and furniture that the Shark can not reach, but that is a small price to pay. Now that the Shark has replaced my Hoover as well as my cordless vacuums, I won't have to buy vacuum bags anymore.
for what you get, the price is too high. Cleans good. but doesn't clean around the edges of the wall. Also, doesn't clean bare floors well. Thinking I might return it.
I love this vacuum! The first time I used it was about a week after I had my apartment professionally cleaned and I could not believe how much dust and dirt it picked up. The suction is so amazing it took down a magnet from my fridge when I was vacuuming in front of it. I would buy it again in a heart beat and have already recommended it to friends!
Okay does pick-up
We are keeping trying to create a perfect vacuum that is affordable and does the job, isn't clumsy and doesn't loose suction. As a child we had the canister big E - as an adult I am known as the vacuum lady. We have two cats, an inside washer and dryer, live in the Bronx, in a town house tracking in without a buffer except foyer mats and shoe/boot removal - need I say more. I have had all but the big D over the years, not that we couldn't afford it but it looks too complicated. This Shark works as an everyday great pick-up, treat me well and I will do the same for you. You do have to develop a different walking around process when you use the wand-furniture staircase piece because it will topple. It is not quiet. The swivel is great and because the path is not that broad you can use it on stairs without taking the wand-staircase attachment apart. I have used it 3 times and includes furniture and stairs - I dumped a nice load of material even though I did prepare for its arrival test by using a sweeper first. We are keeping it and moving a very old canister that is upstairs - out.
Best I've purchased
I'm 75 and live in a small apartment. Over the last 15 yrs I've gone thru several "light wt." vacuums. The last needed a guide book to remove and clean filters every few weeks. I have had this model for a month. I love it. Cleans really well, I have a cat and no other vacuum has got so much fur up and so easily. I notice that I don't have that dust in the air feeling each time I vacuum. It's so easy to use and empty and I am very pleased. It has just enough attachments for me without becoming overwhelmed with what to use. It may not be for everyone but it's just right for me.
Not happy at all
I picked up a shark at an auction that I loved, but my daughter needed one so I gave her the one I got & ordered a new one. It says right on the front " never looses suction" well I had to sweep up pieces of paper & pieces of grass because this did not pick it up. Plan on returning it this week & ordering something else.
ok....... I'm a clean freak ! I've been through 100's of vacuums..........Barrrrrrrrrr none .. this is the best..........I couldnt wait to get it out of the box... and I was NOT dissappointed..........best investment I've made in years........ :-)
Thank you QVC................. Great customer service !!!!
I love this vacuum, it's light, does a much better job of getting up dog hair then my Oreck. The only downfall is the extender to do the stairs is very, very short. Its almost like an arm workout pulling the hose with one arm while trying to do the stairs with the other.
