I've used this vacuum for about 3 months and already the battery is dead after only using it a couple of times per week.
B. Overstreet
It worked great for 10 minutes, then the battery died after charging it for 24 hours.

I think it's a great little stick vac that performs well. I've read some of the critical comments and have some rebuttals.

- Please read the manual as it will resolve most "problems" and misconceptions.
- Complaint: The handle does not recline. Solution: It does when you step on the head while pressing the handle down.
- Complaint: The collection cup pops off randomly. Solution: Make sure it clicks when you put in on.
- Complaint: Power fades too quickly after about 10 minutes. Solution: Manual notes that the battery should be charged for 24 hours when first charged. After that, the charge will last progressive longer with each charge. My only complaints here are that it doesn't specify how long it should be charged after the initial charge and it doesn't estimate how long the charge will last. Also, the red indicator light remains on while charging but there is no indication when it is fully charged. The battery should be left in the charger (and charging) when it is not in the vac and the charger should be unplugged when the battery is not in it (and charging).
- Complaint: It is too noisy. Solution: there are 2 levels of power. Low for bare floors and high (noisier) for carpets. If you use the higher level for floors, it will be noisier.
- Complaint: Not enough suction. Solution: It seems to have plenty for light vacuuming. Remember, it's a stick vac and not a full sized power vacuum.
- Complaint: Hair wraps around brush. Solution: True, but not overly so in my experience. I'm bald but my cat is not. I believe this "problem" would occur with any vac.
- Problem: The debris cup is too small so it requires more frequent emptying that a regular vacuum bag. Solution: True, but it is a stick vac.

In my house, we vacuum twice a day. With two big, hairy dogs, and three active kids, there's a lot to suck up.

Tired of lugging the canister vac all over to get rid of the twice-daily accumulation of dog hair tumbleweeds, I set out in search of a cordless vac that could handle the tasks in my house. I was smitten by the reviews and features of the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vac, but was concerned about spending nearly $200 on it. So I argued with myselves for a bit (the frugal one and the gotta-have-it-now one) and Frugal won. I purchased the Shark for $70, and brought it home to charge overnight.

My 12-year-old son had first try with it the next morning. He had three complaints off the bat 1) you can't get under low furniture because of the design of the vac (handle doesn't recline completely, and the canister is in the way) 2)you can't turn off the power brush, so small area rugs get sucked up, and 3) dog hair ravels around the brush within minutes, and as a result, the brush just stops turning. He spent 20 minutes.

We charged it back up again, and I tried it the next day to see for myself. My son was right on all counts, found a few more. 1) The collection cup pops off randomly, despite seating it correctly, 2) The brush head tilts backward even with only slight reclining of the handle, causing a big loss of suction, and 3)You can hear the motor begin slow down within 5 minutes of use, as the battery/power fades. I haven't been able to use it for more than 10 minutes without significant loss of suction.

SO, the end of this story is that I am returning the Shark vac, after using it for 3 weeks, and I just placed my order for the Linx. Guess my third 'self' won, after all... (the "you-get-what-you-pay-for" self!)

This cordless vac is wonderful & so easy to use. Incredible suction. I use it to vacuum kitchen--it gets under the cabinets and picks up everything--I have a lot of dog hair. Also use it on my door mats and around them on the patio. Just don't try to pick up anything big. I also use it on my carpet for little jobs. I like not having to get out my Dyson, plug it in, etc. just for small jobs. It is very easy to empty filter and pop back in. I like that it is 2 in 1 and easy to take apart and use as a hand vac with the little attachment.

I have thrown away a lot of money on similar products (the worst was the Swivel Sweeper).

Incredible suction. I use to have an electrolux which was close to useless. I can't believe people gave it a 41/2 stars. This vac blow it away with suction power! Super easy to empty the dirt and xtra large dust cup make it my preferred choice at any price. At 6999 at target it is really a no brainer.

I just moved into my first house and I have lots of bare floor space; I wanted to upgrade from a regular broom. I'm so glad I bought this product. It has a great battery life, it's easy to empty and clean the filters and I love that it converts into a hand-vac. It's fantastic on the tile and does well for light carpet cleaning. For me, it's completely worth the money!
UPDATE: I've had this product for about two years now, and I'm still liking it. The battery has already started to shorten (a very tiny bit) its useful charge, but I haven't been great about running it all the way down and keeping it on the charger, either. It still has great suction and works well, especially along the front when you try to get little things against the wall or the cabinets. It's extremely easy to clean compared to my big bagless vacuum, and I feel like I'll never have to replace the little filters it came with because they clean up well. The only thing: I now have a 1 year old, and I have to clean up the kitchen floor several times each day. Sometimes it really is easier to just pull out a broom because the Shark battery isn't charged or I left the battery on and it's running down. But when I'm not "spot cleaning," it's so nice for cleaning my entire kitchen and dining area once or twice a week.
