Rated 5 out of 5 by Joyleen Excellent vacuum
I have been looking for a lighter weight vacuum and saw this as a "Today's Special Value" a couple weeks ago. I ordered it and have used it several times since I received it. I am totally amazed at the power it has. The dirt it picked up was phenomenal. Just as a test, I ran my kenmore cannister vac over my carpet. Then I ran the rocket over the same area ( I had emptied the dirt catcher first) and it picked up dust and more dirt! It is so easy to move around the furniture and works very well on the tile and laminate floors too.
I rarely write reviews but this vacuum is worth every penny I paid. I was so lucky to get it as the Today's special value since I got the attachments to clean small items like computer keyboard. It also works well to clean the car since the wand detaches to make it hand held. Can't say enough about it. I love it!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Slyboots Worst purchase
I thought at first this worked fine on my carpet until I moved onto my hardwood floors. Everything I vacuumed up spilled out on the hard floors. Then I took my old Dyson vacuum and went over my carpet again. The canister filled right up so apparently the shark didn't pick anything up at all. This is very expensive for not doing a good job. Back it goes ! I will stick with a Dyson. It still works after 9 years.

But I really just have a question. Where can I buy replacement filters for this machine. I know u can wash them but I still would like to buy some. It's an excellent machine. I like it
Rated 5 out of 5 by LLB Many pets...
I have many pets and hair is obviously an issue. I use this vacuum constantly and it is fantastic. It picks up so much and it is very easy to clean the filter. I wash mine and stick in the dryer for 10 minutes and it looks brand new! It is lightweight and very handy to have all of the attachments. The attachments are good for my couches and my stairs and they are easy to put on and take off.
I was never a fan of Shark cordless products as the batteries do not last long, but this being corded and the suction is just wonderful. Forget spending double or triple the amount on Dyson, this one is fine especially if you get it on Easy Pay!
Rated 3 out of 5 by cathyschuster only good on carpets
This vacumm is awesome on carpets, picks up everything. but since you cannot stop the roller from spinning like you can on the Shark Rotator, the dirt spits back out at you if you are using his on a bare floor. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by PMcCormack I love this vacuum!
This is an awesome vacuum. I also have a Dyson so when I got the Shark I did an experiment. I have 2 cats. I vacuumed the living room first with the Dyson and then with the Shark. The shark sucked up 2 canisters worth of cat hair and stuff!!! I was shocked. I can rest assured knowing that my Shark is really vacuuming my rugs. It has good power and propulsion without your having to push it, so it does the work for you (though it takes a bit of muscle to guide it). It is super easy to detach the handheld motor part of the vacuum to get into narrow areas where the head won't fit - like in the space between furniture or you can plug the upholstery tool to the handheld to vacuum a cat tree. It can vacuum my entire house - carpeting, bare floors and area rugs. This little baby can reach lots of places most vacuums can't...it pivots to go around furniture, and because its head is small it can go under furniture. It is light enough to easily carry upstairs and to vacuum the stairs. That said, it is a bit of an arm and hand workout to hold it but I think its a win-win...get the house vacuumed and get a bit of a workout. But if you have any hand or arm problems, you may want to get a different vacuum. It has a long cord so I only need to plug it in once to vacuum the entire first or second floor. One last note - this vacuum does not stand up on its own, but its easy to prop it up against the wall. I love this vacuum! My Dyson is going bye-bye.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CaseyC WONDERFUL !!!!!!
Totally LOVE this Shark! My husband purchased me a Kirby a few years ago and it is a piece a junk after going over my bedroom carpet with this Shark! It got stuff out of my carpet I wouldn't have ever dreamed was there! I am a serious vac freak too! This isn't a mistake purchase! Buy it!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BUFFsQueen Where have you been all my life
I have had just about every vacuum cleaner there is...dragging them around. This drags me around and picks up dirt that I absolutely cant believe. It is lightweight, maneuverable and I absolutely, totally and completely love it. It has amazing power..gets into all the little nooks and crannies.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CocoAnn Tremendous tool!!!!
If you are AT ALL wondering whether or not to purchase the Shark Rocket Stick Vacuum; stop wondering. I am confident you will appreciate and be so very happy you ordered. This is my lifesaver and goto, for all my vacuuming. The suction is better than my big vacuum; making sure to meet my " overly high" expectations of perfectly vacuumed carpets....complete with LINES......love, love, love. But don't take my word for it....as this is merely my opinion;). Get this home, use it, love it, and repeat:)!! God Bless your hearts.

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 Enough Power to Tackle Much Of Anything, : / Disappointed.
Rated 1 out of 5 by gran 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.
