Shark Rocket Stick Vacuum
I swear by Dyson an thought i would try a shark after many years, my past experience was not good.
I bought this to leave on the 2nd floor, to clean all my bedrooms and hall and stairwell. we are just 2 people so its never really dirty.
This shark lasted all of 3 uses and then started to perform on a very low level . I wish i kept the box i would have sent it right back! its was such a waste of money!
Buyer Beware!!! Its a dude that doesn't work !
Not Worth It
Not Enough Power to Tackle Much Of Anything, : / Disappointed.
Not best for older people
I would not recommend this vacuum to older women, using this vacuum will make your shoulder and arm ache, it is top heavy. It will not stand up, you have to lay it down in the floor just to pull out a chair.
Not worth the money
Good Points: gets under furniture with ease and easy to carry.
Bad points: Top heavy, hard to keep brush head on the floor; very tiring to use after only a few minutes; does not clean better than other less expensive vacuums I own. The vac does not stand on it's own, so you have to lay it down if you need to move something. It must be unplugged to empty container and container must be detached to store.
super little vac
This Shark surprised me by how powerful it is. Now, it is what it is - not a big, heavy floor vac, and doesn't have a wide beater or opening, so it is maybe not what you use to do periodic deep vacuuming and grooming of wall-to-wall. But it's flexible, drops down low, gets around lots of chair legs, vacuums dust from hard floors with very little "blow-back", and it really moves! I got this for doing stairs and upholstery as well, and for dusting the tops of cabinets while up on a ladder, and it's superior for all that, and much more convenient than a conventional vac with attachments. There are other vacs with a similar design, but the price on this one is excellent given its performance. And for the "problem" of it not standing up on its own, if you detach the top part and hang it from the hook on the pole, near the bottom part, it's not top heavy any more and will keep its balance.
This stick vac FAR exceeded my expectations! I have 3 cats and a dog. My tiny furballs shed so much fur a could start a sweater company in my home. I have all tile in my house, and I cannot believe how much fur I vacuum up in just one day. It fills the entire canister. It has great suction, even when the canister is full . I love that it has all the attachments so I can get into hard to reach places as well. This is just an all around great vac for the price.
*I've had this vacuum since August and use it EVERY day
i have used this vaccum for about 4 weeks and highly recommend it. It is VERY powerful, and does an outstanding job of picking up the dirt and cleaning my carpets. The swivel feature makes it so easy to control and clean all those nooks and crannies. I have switched from a bigger vaccum to using this exclusively in my home. Also, it is light weight and easy to handle! This is much better than the Dyson stick vacuum I had. I gave the Dyson away because this Shark is much more powerful, and you plug it into the electric wall outlet, and not a charger. Don't hesitate...and buy it! You will be glad you did.
Pros and Cons
I've had this vacuum for over a month and on the whole I like it but there are definitely some pros and cons to it. It is light, has powerful pick up and it great for getting under things with its low profile. Also nice the way the head swivels to get under cabinets. But remember the head is much smaller than larger vacuums which is great for getting into tight places but you do have to go back and forth over an area more times cuz the width of the head is smaller. And it is very much self-propelling. As some reviewers have already noted it does NOT stand up on its own which was NOT made clear in the sales presentation but I'm getting used to laying it down. It is NOT good for vacuuming the inside of the car. The "motor/head" is too large to get in tight spaces. It IS top heavy and your arm/wrist can get fatigued because of that. I also don't like that the cord is attached to the top area cuz when you go to empty the dust cup you have to drag this long cord with you to the trash can. No real place for the attachments. They give you a bag to put them in though. I have not used the "mop head" attachment as I don't the type of floors to use that on. And for some it may be a bit loud. So I AM glad I have it but it wasn't as "wonderful" as it was made out to be, which is true of so many things in life!
I'm amazed every time I use this vacuum. I was using a very expensive vacuum which was heavy and somewhat bulky but I was always happy with the results. I purchased this for quick easy jobs instead of getting out the "good" vacuum. I can't believe what the shark rocket pulls out of my carpets, I'm amazed every time I use it. It's the only sweeper I use now. You will love it, it's great on hard woods and rugs of all sizes too. Money well spent.
Absolutely the best
I am surprised with how much power this little vacuum has and how versatile it is. And it is so portable and has so many different accessories that come with it. I had a bigger older vacuum cleaner and I had bought this one for little quick jobs. Well after couple of uses my old large vacuum cleaner went to "Good Will" store ! I am back to buy one as a gift and I thought I should write a review for it and say thank you to designers and engineers of this little machine !
This is the best product ever!
I have bought Orach and Dyson in the past, and this vacuum is heads above both of them -- it pulls dirt from both the carpet and floor, is easy to maneuver, and has a loooong cord which means I don't have to replug it to use it on the stairs. And it's bagless, which saves the cost of purchasing the expensive Orach bags.
The ONLY negative is that it won't stand on its own, but has to be either hung on its hook or leaned against a wall/door. But honestly, folks, that isn't a big deal when you find out how much fun this vacuum is to use. I think this might be the best product I've ever purchased from QVC, and I've shopped with them for 20+ years.
best vacumn ever
I love a clean house, and have a number of dogs, namely, huskies, and the shedding is unreal at times. No problem with this new shark. Just get it, plug it in and the hair is gone. Does a great job on all type of floors, vinyl, carpet, and tile. No matter what I just grab the shark and things are back to normal. I told my sister about this vacumn, and she bought one as well. Forget the big heavy machines, go with this light weight machine and you can't go wrong
