V31421 - Sharper Image 1000 Watt Hand & Stick Vacuum w/ Attachments
Not strong enough
I needed something to run around the kitchen,
it didn't do much more than dust & crumbs.
I need more, so back it goes.
I gave this one star just because I liked the suction. I wanted a smaller vacuum to do the in between jobs when I don't want to pull out the dyson. You can barely vacuum the kitchen and the collection bin is over full. The end that blows out air has never been used but the door won't stay closed. My attachments won't stay attached, they keep coming off when I'm vacuuming. When you empty it, it picks up well for about fifteen seconds then its full again. I'm not recommending it to anyone.
Helpful Tool but gets hot fast
I bought this vacuum for quick clean-ups around our house. I liked that it had a plug and was not a charger model because they seem to loose power too quickly. This vacuum works well but is a bit awkward in that there is no shoulder strap and no carrying bag to store all the many parts. The filter also fills fast if you have a pet. It is strong but we noticed it smells a bit after use as if it is over heating and gets hot to the touch and smells of hot plastic. I think the motor is strong but it easily over heats. I took a chance and bought this vacuum because a lot of vacuums are so big and bulky that you cannot get them underneath any furniture, this was a good answer to that but I wish it did nto get so hot.
Just RETURNED my Vacuum ;-(
The "vacuum" was okay; The "blower" was just okay too for light feather type items - I think my hair dryer did a better job blowing stuff away. Anyway, I was vacuuming for no longer than five minutes - the "blower" end got real hot and then the vacuum just STOPPED -- I even cleaned the filter and the container before I used it so it wasn't full or dirty. Anyway, I packed it up and shipped it back for a refund.
:-( Sad cause I kind of liked the vacuum.
Great quick vac
This is a great little power vac. It is light weight and multi function. I love the reverse attachment to make it a blower - which works great at keeping my porch and patio clean. It is great for small clean ups - not a replacement for a regular vacuum. This machine is very powerful. I am not disappointed.
The vacuum met or exceeded my expectations. It had a nice heft to it and the suction power was excellent. My only con was it didn't have aconvenient way of storing all the parts.
I ordered 2, one for myself and one for my sister. Good thing I tried it out before I gave my sister hers. I couldn't get the head to stop flipping up. It didn't glide over the carpet easily at all. The cord the host said was super long didn't even reach across my hallway. I couldn't get it back in the box fast enough! Too bad it cost me just under $20 to discover it was all make believe. Very, very disappointing!!
I don't understand the negative reviews on this little vacuum. For me personally it works. I have severe back issues and it is hard for me to use a full size vacuum. This fits the bill! I did the stairway and base boards and cleaned my pet beds. It has a lot of power for a little machine! I haven't tried the blower option yet but I am anxious to try it on the tracks in my sliding doors. The unit gets a little warm while in use and I wondered if that was normal, but all in all I would rate it positively. I gave it the four star rating only because of the unit feeling warm after use.
2 thumbs UP!
My wish is for everyone I know to have one of these! And it may come true this Christmas. Lots of suction, even with the long attachments. Got all the edges and corners without having to bend over - a real blessing!
another waste of shipping
took forever to figure out which parts went where. then tried to use to vacuum, this does a horrible job. back it goes. don't waste your time or money.
Where's the watts?
I tried this on my carpeted stairs when I got it home, and spent 10 minutes trying to vacuum the pet hair, and normal dust accumulation ON 2 STEPS! What a disappointment! My old Dirt Devil is still doing a waaaay better job than this brand new machine. Definitely going back.
