Can we have a discussion about vacuum cleaners? I'm going to assume the answer is yes since we are in the reviews section of what appears to be a vacuum cleaner. Now, to me, vacuum cleaners have always been a necessary evil. You buy them, you use them, you hate them, they break, you buy another and the cycle repeats. Which makes the countless hours of reading reviews, going to stores, "vacuuming" the floor of stores, and hemming and hawing over various options seem fruitless and wasteful.
Look no more. This vacuum is the one you have been searching for. This will be the first vacuum you will own that you will be genuinely glad to get out of the closet and use. Pet hair, dirt, food, dried up husks of people's dignity. You will be GLAD to see it on the floor, you will feel a little giddy when you go to the closet to get this vacuum.
I'm sure you're already sold. But allow me to tell you why. First of all, this vacuum is incredibly easy to use. For a vacuum that has so many features, I expected it to be a herculean effort to switch from upright to canister, to wand, etc. I was pleasantly surprised to find it as easy as clicking a button or pushing in a tab.I can vacuum dog hair off of my rug and pop the canister off to get under the tv stand. Slide it back on and boom! back to an upright vacuum.
Secondly this vacuum is incredibly powerful. One swipe over the rug and the dog hair is gone! Our puppy likes to bring in sticks from the back yard and vanquish them on our rugs. I pick up the larger bits by hand but believe me when I say there is very little this vacuum cleaner has met that it can't pick up (notable exception coming later). I also appreciate that there is very little "dead space" at the front and sides of the head. If I push it right up against a baseboard it cleans right up against the baseboard. None of this sweeping the edges the room to make sure they're clean (not that I did it anyway but it's nice to not feel like a house-cleaning failure). The suction that this thing has is very impressive. Don't get anything near the wand or head that you don't intend on sucking in there because it will be gone forever (or at least until you empty the canister). I've had a couple dog toys get too close and I'm sure their lives flashed before their lifeless, glossy black eyes.
And this vacuum is super easy to use on area rugs, carpets, and hard floors. I switch over easily from our hard wood floors to our area rugs. It doesn't even suck up the edges of the rugs like my old vacuum used to!
Now, I'm sure you're all wondering what the cons are. And I would be remiss if I tried to pretend like it didn't have any (but before we get started let me assure you that the ease, power and all around awesomeness of this vacuum definitely outweighs any cons I could possibly share).
-The vacuum is a bit heavy. I have weak arms and wrists and because of the rotator feature, sometimes the vacuum turns in a way you don't intend and you have to bring it back to you to straighten it out. Definitely not a life-ender.
-The vacuum, for whatever reason, has a heck of a time with leaves, especially on hard surface areas. I believe it is because the leaves are so light that the vacuum just pushes them along the floor instead of getting them under the head where it can suck them up. I usually just use the hose to catch those.
-My biggest complaint: the hose is short and stiff. NOT an issue when you are using it as an upright. However, when you take the canister off and run the wand underneath something, watch where that canister is and how much hose you have. I have wounded a couple toes having it fall on my feet. Hold the canister for a wound-free experience. This is also an issue when you put the canister on it's little roll-about (seriously the cutest thing ever) and vacuum. The thing follows so closely behind you it nips at your ankles like an eager puppy.
Now to wrap it all up. Stop searching. Stop plugging things in to your excel spreadsheet and comparing HEPA this to canister that. This is the one. This is the vacuum that you will compare all future vacuums to. This is the one that will inspire you to say "Sure, that hose could be longer, but darn it all I don't care". This, with all it's nifty attachments and buttons and canisters, this is the one that can tackle anything. If you vacuum has died and honorable death, let out a sigh of relief because you get the bring this home and it will absolutely change your relationship with vacuum cleaners.

I Like it but not quite as much as I'd hoped
Posted by: Kennifer from: on
I like this vacuum. It does a great job on carpet and I love the relatively light weight and the way it handles. It gets around obstacles nicely. It also gets under furniture better than most vacuums. The only downside for me is that it does not pick up small stuff like bird seed off of hard floors very well at all on the bare floor setting. Even my cheap Dirt Devil does that better. I find it works better on hard floors using the "turbo" or short carpet setting. I'd recommend it if your primary concern is carpeted floors.

Great vacuum, and lightweight too.
Posted by: MrsDoubtfire from: on
While at the Best Buy store, my wife and I purchased some Pringles to test the cleaning ability of several Shark brand bagless vacuum cleaners. We crumbled some chips and vacuumed away.
This model proved to be the only one to be able to pick up all the crumbled chips pieces in one pass. It is slightly heavier than some of their cheaper models but not enough to matter.
This model feels more substantial because it is more substantial. Also, the lights at the brush head and at the handheld wand have proven to be quite useful.
At home we compared it to our Kirby (significantly heaver and much more expensive) and it performed as well. The Shark's Lift-Away feature sets it apart from all vacuums that don't have this capability.

I bought this Shark because of the reviews and for the brand. I was not disappointed. It cleaned better than my old vacuum and it is so easy I don't have to stop and move everything to vacuum under everything. Great product and great price.

I LOVE this Shark vacuum!!! I have had two vacuums since I moved into my house three years ago, and as a single mom of a very active six year old, "STUFF" gets left, and EVERYWHERE. My vacuums were constantly clogging. It was ridiculous. This is an amazing machine. It has never clogged and I can go straight from carpet to kitchen floor ... Just flip the switch! It's fantastic! I HIGHLY recommend it!! (Pine needles after Christmas... GONE!! Popcorn all over the place... GONE!!) It's fantastic!!

Best vacuum EVER
Posted by: haastocross6 from: on
I was reluctant to get a new vacuum as I thought my old vacuum was working just fine. Needless to say my new vacuum has sucked up more stuff than I thought our carpets could hold. Vacuumed one day and 3 days later it was still sacking up more dirt and dust than I could imagine...and this was only in 2 rooms.

Awsome Cleaning power!
Posted by: Santa from: on
I bought this vacuum as a Christmas gift for my son and daughter-in-law.
The stair cleaning option works well, and the regular power head, unbelievable. They had just had their carpets cleaned a couple of months prior and the amount of dirt/carpet fuzz was amazing. The hard floor function worked well on their tile floor, but I didn't try the floor duster feature.
I have been wanting to buy this vacuum for myself for about a year now, this was the perfect chance for me to try it out on my Christmas visit to see them.
My only reservation for purchasing it for myself, as an upright it is extremely heavy to push, even my son, who is a big guy commented on it.
I think if I buy one for myself, I will end up using it on the caddy as a canister.

Wow was my house gross
Posted by: scnsocial from: California on
My last vacuum I purchased was about 10 years ago, a Bissell, from Best Buy. Our home holds 2 dogs, 2 cats, 3 children, 4 adults (in-laws stay with us) and many guests in and out often. We purchased new carpet about 1 1/2 yrs ago that's meant for high traffic and was stain treated. We've had it cleaned once since. I vacuum about once a week. Zoom to about 2 weeks ago, our vacuum finally broke. I did some homework online, read reviews, watched videos, and decided to go with Shark. I purchased the Shark Rotator Powered model # NV752, not listed at Best Buy but closest match to this -could just be a color difference (confession, I went somewhere else where I could apply a coupon). I vacuumed the living room first and had to empty the canister twice. It pulled up soooo much dirt and animal hair, I was disgusted and amazed. Next room was the "play"/animal room that led out to the backyard... emptied the canister 4 times! It was so gross and so satisfying at the same time. I've noticed better air quality immediately. My oldest was encouraged to clean her room and vacuum and she also got close to a whole canister full, and she has much less traffic. My project this weekend is to vacuum the furniture, can't wait. It's life changing really, a reminder of how much technology/appliances improve even after a few years. And we had a whole 10! Just get it, best investment.

Very happy except...
Posted by: megarooni from: on
Absolutely love Shark products! This vacuum is great and I got it when Best Buy had a promo code going on. I wish I would have got the deep red (pet edition) but didn't realize their differences until after my purchase. Best Buy was extremely fast in shipping it for free (to Alaska!) My only issue with the vacuum is that the piece that holds the tube in to place down the pole easily falls out of place all the time. We never had this issue with our previous Shark vacuum, it's a major design flaw of this one. Overall I would recommend this vacuum to friends & family. The option to vacuum underneath large furniture without moving it is awesome!
