Shark Rocket Stick Vacuum
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
Best vacuum I've ever owned
I was a bit skeptical about the price when I bought it as a TSP. How would such a reasonably priced vacuum stack up against some expensive uprights or re-chargeables? Well, using is believing! LIke the others, I too have pets and it does a remarkable job vacuuming up the hair. Love the power, swivel head and ease of dumping the collection container. It felt strange at first because instead of pushing it, it PULLS you! It takes up very little space and the cord is no bother compared to re-chargeable units that only last 15 minutes and then have to be charged again. It certainly takes me more than 15 minutes to vacuum! It comes in very attractive colors, also. I rarely write reviews but had to give this vacuum credit for surpassing my expectations!
Greatest Purchase Ever
I have a high low carpet which is the worst for vacuums, but not for the Rocket Stick Vacuum. I can finally vacuum without breaking my back and also use for my other jobs without having to take my held hand vac. It is also great on my tile floors.
I also have the Shark steamer which I love and the shark hand held steamers. Thanks Shark for your great innovations.

Thank you QVC for having this on EASY PAY at the time I bought mine ....GREAT PRODUCT!! HONEST!
Go to vacuum
I love love this vacuum. It has great suction power and is easy to "drive" as I call it. I can vacuum under the beds, the couch and pretty much everything with no problem. I have inside dogs and cats and I swear this vacuum does the job when it comes to picking up hair. I use the bare floor attachment for the kitchen and bathrooms. It picks up scattered litter very well. I have a Hoover as well, but this is my go to vacuum. The Hoover hasn't been used since this was delivered.
No, you can't stand it up by itself, but just lean it against the wall. It will stand just fine. With the wall mount rack, it is put up and out of the way until your next use.
Best Vacuum Ever !
Works great. Was shocked at the amount of dirt and dog hair picked up from the carpet. Carpet actually looks like it has pile again ! Works much better than my Oreck. Easy to maneuver, great on stairs, convenient to just grab and go. I find I'm vacuuming more cuz it's so convenient. Takes just a little getting used to having the weight of the motor up in your hand rather than on the floor but I'm not a strong person and don't even notice it anymore. I've had it since it was the TSV and still loving it.
