    We had a Dyson and it kept getting clogged. This vacuum is better in that regard. It is light for easy maneuverability. The only downside is the smaller head means more swipes and shorter cord means more plug ins but overall, especially at this price point, a very good vacuum.

    Great vacuum but could be improved

    The machine is light and effective and has held up fine so far. There are a couple of things that could be better. The first is the cord is a bit too short. You need to plug it in multiple places to do a large area. Second, there isn't any place to store the attachments on the vacuum. You have to carry them with you from place to place. But it does a great job of cleaning up and I got it for a pretty good price.

    I love this vacuum. It excellent when picking up pet hair. I have a long haired Pomeranian that is constantly shedding. This picks up all of the hair on the floor and it easily lifts out of the canister so that I can vacuum the couch that he likes to sleep. Even when it is full it continues to suck up dirt at full power. It does not lose power like other vacuums I have used. When it is in canister mode, it is very lightweight and not a hassle at all to use. It comes with plenty of attachments too. The only downside is that the cord is a little on the short side. I might get an extension to use with this.

    Surprisingly nice vacuum

    I've never owned a shark vacuum but heard good things so figured it was worth a try. This thing is priced well below some of the other top brand/models so how does it compare? Well the build is nice and sturdy and I had no issues putting it together. Everything just snaps together. Comes with a few extra extensions as well like most upright vacuums. I use this on hardwood floors and carpet. The only vacuum I can compare this to is my older upright Dyson. Below is a list of pros and cons based on comparison and usage. -Pros Nice build quality Has swivel Fluffed carpet better Smaller so lighter Was able to get under furniture another 4 inches Don't have to bend down as much to change floor settings Not as noisy Had no issue picking up pet hair -Cons Shorter cord Suction was a bit weaker Didn't pick up bigger items Smaller bin so needed to empty after each use Extra extensions don't attach to the side for storage Some long hair did get stuck around spinning brush In the end this is a nice sized vacuum. It does what its supposed to do and does it very well.

    Could be better...

    To start this is not our first Shark Vacuum so I would like to compare this one to that model which is the Shark AX951. The new ZU562 model seems to share a good amount of features with that model however has some major drawbacks not only to that model but other vacuums in general. In the box you get the typical Vacuum itself with a few different heads to help with cleaning other surfaces that are not on the ground. This is normal for most vacuums these days. Also this one comes with the manual but lacks a carrying bag like the AX951 came with. Setting this unit up takes all of a few minutes which is great! Now getting straight into the performance of the ZU562 it works fairly well but with several drawbacks. As soon I starting using the vacuum I noticed the head or beater bar of this vacuum is VERY loud. Its almost so bad you might think something was wrong. After doing the floors for a while I noticed that the cord seemed stuck, well I figured out the cord is 5 feet shorter than our Shark AX951. This length was just enough to require moving the cord one additional time through the house. Not a big deal but another drawback nonetheless. The actual suction of the ZU562 is very good and on par with our older Shark. The canister contained quite a bit of hair and dirt but it also seemed to have more fuzz from the carpet than our other Shark picks up which makes me wonder if the different style brush is so good its tearing the carpet up as well. After doing an area with lots of longer hair I flipped the vacuum over and still found a few strands of hair wrapped around the brush. Not a big deal since it was easily pulled off but not as the vacuum advertises. Using the unit without the head is very easy because it is very lightweight! Stairs or whatever are easily done with the air powered spinning brush. One thing I noticed while using the vacuum in its normal up write position is the head lacks any form of lighting. To me this was a another major flaw. Lastly, the connector on the hose that secures the hose to the handle (Keeps it out of the way) does not stay in the hole well at all. I find it falls out with the smallest bumps to the hose. Overall the unit works fine but the missing features or inadequate aspects of this vacuum are very disappointing to see from Shark since our last vacuum was of much better quality although at a higher price. Pros: - Plenty of suction/picks up almost everything - Lightweight Cons: - No "headlights" on head of vacuum - Short Cord - Head is VERY loud when brush is spinning, motor itself is quiet. - Hose clip which secures hose to handle barely works - Switch to turn vacuum on and off is not on handle. Requires you to bend slightly For the price maybe these features are not realistic but the features that are here should work better. Vacuum itself works great but comes at a cost of noise, no lighting on the vacuum, a shorter cord. I would recommend checking out some of Sharks slightly more expensive models that seem to fix all of the downfalls of this vacuum.

    Only One Flaw

    This vacuum does a fantastic job, with only one shortcoming. I will get to that later. This vacuum is solidly built and I can see it surviving the punishment it will take in this household. My wife is hard on vacuums, we go thru at least one a year no matter the quality nor price of the vacuum. After running it, you can see a difference over our previous vacuum. The previous vacuum, by another manufacturer, was said not to lose suction and advertised as a pet vacuum. Well, over the last year it has lost suction and collected enough hair that the brush is hampered by the strands. Based on the design, it supposedly won't happen with this vacuum. Time will tell, but you can almost see why it won't happen here. There is plenty of clearance and the brush seems like it will minimize the strand collection pretty well. The vacuum comes with all the attachments needed. You have all the crevices and brush attachments you expect from Shark and you would pay extra for with a few other manufacturers. They truly thought of almost everything. Almost. The collection bin is large and shows how much it picked up. The chamber is also detachable from the base so you can easily use this on stairs or with the attachments or to reach ceiling fans or blinds without the added weight of the motor in the arm you are extending. It is close to being a canister vacuum but has all the capabilities of a normal upright. What is the one flaw? The cord is shorter than most any other vacuum we have ever had. It is a shame that something as simple as a cord for a corded vacuum would be the only detraction. When I say the cord is short, where we can usually unplug a couple times thru the house, the cord is probably 2-3 feet shorter than the other vacuums we have had. It is not a major difference, just means moving the cord a few extra times in our house. If you can live with what seems like a short cord, this is an outstanding vac.
