this is an awesome and convenient vacuum. i took a chance and bought it at costco. i was very pleased. i did some remodeling at my house so my floors were filthy. it's cool because it comes with a lot of attachments. the canister can be attached to the wheel caddy or you can hand carry it or put it on your shoulder. very handy and powerful suction, especially when you use the crevice attachment. great for wood floors, tile floors, and hard to reach places.

Love it. Very light long cord and has a lot of power, I have 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house needed a vacuum that would pick up animal hair and this one does the job. I have lived in this house for 7 years and have gone through 7 vacuum cleaners. Hoping the shark will last longer than a year. I believe it will.

I love it even it's not perfect.
I use it for hard floor.
Great suction: By the first try, It collected ~ a pint of fine dirt on my
wiped floor. The suction is much better than my old electrolux full size canister vacuum.
very nice price, sorry to amazon, i got it for $100 from costco.

2 tricks for easy use:
1, I hook the shoulder belt on the vacuum and the ring on the hand handle. if you make the shoulder belt the shortest, it perfectly drags the vacuum on the wheels. So, I don't drag on the hose.
2, take off the hard floor tool, then use the telescopic tube for hard to reach corners.

It will be perfect if it can wrap the cord by itself and if it has a dirt bag. anyway, most corded vacuums have an annoying cord and all bagless vacuum are kind of messy.

My daughter and family recently moved from an apartment to first home, I visited and soon realized they needed a new vacuum for an active family of 5. Don't be fooled by the convenient size, this is one tough,all purpose workhorse. The hepa filter and easy to empty canister are super user friendly. Stairs are a breeze with the easy to lift unit, even without the included shoulder strap, The Shark balances easily in one hand as you use one of many included attachments.
When I returned home ,3000 miles away, and saw my clunker in the closet, I knew what to do----order my own Shark canister and I have never been disappointed.

Really enjoying this vacuum. It's light and easy to carry around - weighs less than a gallon of milk. The arm extends quite a ways so it's easy to reach ceiling fans, vents, etc. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the carpet tool. It feels cheap and I have to clear it often, even to clean just one room. Granted, there's a good amount of fur, but it's still annoying. Overall though I'm very happy.

I can't say enough good things about this vaccuum!! I love it so much!! I have dogs and this thing is so easy to roll on the wheels or carry around. The cord is long. Super easy to empty the hair out and keep going. The handle goes really long so I don't have to bend over!! When this one bites the dusts, I will buy another!! I've been using this thing for over a year now! No complaints at all!!

I've had this product for about a month now and I've used it at least twice a week during that time. I have bare floors and give it 5 stars for suction and usability/functionality, but the hose keeps breaking off where it connects to the unit. I Crazy Glued it once; it lasted about three more uses, and has just broken off again. I'm not sure how to fix it so I guess I'll have to take it back and try again but since I've seen this complaint in other reviews it's clearly a quality issue and I'm not convinced the next one won't do the same thing. Very disappointed.

UPDATE 4/27/13: I did replace the first vacuum with another identical one. The hose just came off of it today--same exact problem. Awesome little machine, for a month or two. If you have loads of time to waste returning them, go ahead and purchase. I, however, will be going with a different brand.

Here is the short version: its way too complicated for a simple task and requires constant cleaning.

Long version: FIRST, the canister is way too small and requires constant emptying. SECOND, the emptying process makes a huge mess. The canister has to be opened from the top and bottom to empty it, but because it has plastic guts inside you still need to remove hair and any other stringy debris with YOUR HAND. You also need to clean the foam air filter because otherwise it loses suction. After emptying, you and the vacuum will be covered in dust - our vacuum has been covered in dust since the first time we cleaned it. THIRD, to use the vacuum upright you have to attach the hose to an extendable tube. This tube's extending mechanism is INSIDE the tube - which causes constant clogging in the tube. The only way to clear these clogs is to remove the tube and nozzle, flip the tube around, and use the hose to suck the tube from the other direction. Then you have to reassemble until the next clog - which will happen soon. FOURTH, the wide nozzle used for floors has a very small degree of movement which requires you to hold the whole thing at a very precise and odd angle - if you try to reach forward or backward with it the narrow angle causes the nozzle to lose contact with the ground. FIFTH, the vacuum includes a wheel base, but as you move about you must awkwardly pull the vacuum which often results in it tipping over. SIXTH, there is no way to store the hose or the power cord on the vacuum - instead they insultingly give you a velcro loop to tie up the cord. SEVENTH, there are too many buttons on it. Even having used it for a while, I still have hard time deciphering the power button, the cup release button, the open the canister button, and the remove from base button.
