FEATURES I LOVE:
MULTI FLEX WAND: This tool makes it a breeze to clean under tight areas (like under the fridge where billions of dust bunnies live), around the sides of appliances, under furnishings that are low to the ground (limited access), around the toilet, etc. which I cannot clean with my cordless Dyson. This also makes it easy for quick clean ups around the cat box, etc. when needed. With the skinny Anti- Allergen Dust Brush attached, this cordless can go almost anywhere that is tedious, or requires moving furniture to clean. There's also an "Under Appliance" wand that I adore. It's so nice to not have to fumble around, or keep changing attachments to clean these areas. Since we have 4 cats, we always have tufts of fur in corners, along the baseboards, and pretty much everywhere that's difficult to reach, the Shark handles this cleaning perfectly.
BATTERY PACK: This vac holds a much longer charge than my other vac which lasts about 6 min on max and about 15 min at the lower setting. I must say that this is the most annoying problem with my Dyson. There's no battery, so I must plug it in and wait. The same situation here except the charge (depending upon how hard you're working this vac) can last past 20 min, and you can purchase an additional battery if needed. Yep, that costs some bucks but it might be worthwhile if you prefer a cordless that can nearly compete powerwise with a corded vac. The Shark works a whole lot better in my situation than trying to work my tail off for a measly 6 min. Since we live in a rural area, our dust and cobwebs are beyond absurd, never mind the cat hair (!), I can get a whole lot more cleaning done per 'go' with this Shark and don't mind having to purchase another battery if needed.
THE BRUSH HEAD (for cleaning floors): Well, the Shark just beats the pants off the Dyson, hands down. The size and quality of the brush is much better and feels more substantial. Yes, it's a bit heavier (it's more like a corded vac) but it does a better job all around. The soft roller had me a bit puzzled but it works superbly in capturing clumping cat litter and much finer dust...which no vac I've ever had could do very well. It's a bit more complicated (not much, really!) to clean the brush head when it's gets loaded but I don't mind since the cleaning it does makes it worthwhile. This brush head also does a deeper clean on carpeting and rugs, almost as well as a much more powerful corded vac.
WARNING LIGHT: You get a warning light that signals when the vac is about to lose it's charge, and the indicator lights while it's charging makes it easy to ascertain whether you have enough power to complete or even begin a job. My Dyson has no such feature, it's basically on/off or charging/not charged, and is annoying as Hell (!).
THE ACCESSORIES: The accessory set with this vac is actually very useful. I typically only use one or two tools and forget the rest in a closet. I love the Pet Multi Tool, it does an excellent job of picking up dry debris from carpet and rugs,much better than any cordless we've used. The Deep Cleaning Motorized Pet Tool has me intruiged but unfortunately, I didn't receive one with my vac. I plan on contacting the company regarding this missing part, I think it would be ideal for a number of different surfaces like upholstery, etc. I will update my review accordingly when I have more info about this.... The Duster Crevice Tool gets a lot of usage around windows and drapes, art on the wall, window sills, etc. Super handy!
UPDATE: I contacted Shark directly and was told this tool is NOT included even though it's included in the manual (and has no disclaimer such as "only selected models"). This is unfortunate because there's NO TOOL TO DO UPHOLSTERY WITH, I will be using another machine instead. I docked a star for this because there's no adequate tool to clean fabric with, the Pet Multi Tool has a stiff brush and is totally inadequate for fabric unless it's VERY STURDY, it would definitely not work with more delicate fabric(s) on furnishings, draperies, etc. I also looked everywhere online and could not find this tool sold anywhere, including the official Shark site (!) so I can't even tell you how much something like this would cost. Comparatively speaking about $50-$60 I'm guessing, since that's what a tool like this costs for other models they sell. Gee....that's frustrating, Shark ya lost a star.... :(
CONSTRUCTION: The construction of this vac is excellent, it truly feels like a lasting, quality piece of equipment. It's very easy to maneuver, everything slides in easily where it's supposed to go, and doesn't require any learning curve to run at it's best. I also like where the dust cup is located and how it empties, it's very easy to access and I no longer have problems with dirt getting into places that require me to get the tweezers out to clean (my pet peeve with Dyson!).
CLEANING FOR ALLERGIES: If you have allergies or problems with breathing, this cordless is entirely capable of cleaning at the level you need, I feel it's really the first of it's kind in this regard vs corded vacs. I have tried many since my son struggles with asthma and seasonal allergies, this vac does an awesome job....every bit as well as my very expensive corded vac. The Shark is lightweight, although a bit heavier than others I've used but I can now see how the lighter vacs sacrificed quality for the sake of weight when it comes to deep cleaning. I also love that I can wash the filters rather than having to buy them new each time. I'm still "getting to know" this wonderful machine but am as pleased as I can be with it's performance, sleek appearance, and user friendly design. It took me about 5 min to set up and get started cleaning first time out (you must fully charge the battery first, it's only partially charged when shipped to you). This is an excellent cordless vac and certainly competes well with much more expensive brands (Dyson, Miele, etc), Shark has gone all out to compete with the elite brands of vaccuum cleaners. The only problem I see with this vac is that it's inadequate for doing upholstery, drapes, etc, keep this in mind when purchasing, you'll be shelling out more money for another "turbo type" tool whenever it hits the market.
It is very easy to assemble and, after fully charging the unit, we were able to get about 20 minutes of vacuuming.
We had vacuumed our foyer and living room just a couple of days ago with our Electrolux Ergorapido Lithium Ion Deluxe 2-1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum, EL2081A - Cordless yet this new Shark unit picked up a large amount of dirt, far more than we would have expected.
Note that the Electrolux costs only about 1/3 the price of the Shark and it is a fine unit. But given our 'druthers, we'd much rather have this Shark than almost any other vacuum cleaner we own (so far!).
It cleans closer to our baseboards than ANY other vacuum cleaner we have ever owned and it fits easily under our sofa, chairs, etc. and gets closer to their boundaries again better than any other vacuum cleaner we have ever owned.
It comes with several attachments (and, as with all 'stick' vacuums in our experience, it has no place to store them). Frankly, however, and at least with us, we rarely if ever use these attachments so I placed them in a plastic grocery bag and put them in our closet.
Is this vacuum perfect?
There are three "cons" as I see it.
Number One: "Lightweight" is a relative term, as is "Ultra Lightweight." In MY opinion, this vacuum would be "Ultra Lightweight" if compared to a Sherman Tank. But it isn't anything that I would call "Ultra Lightweight" (That Electrolux mentioned above is genuinely "Ultra Lightweight.")
Number Two: The vacuum cleaner will not stand up on its own when it is extended for use. It is very poorly balanced, with most of the weight on top. If for some reason you need to stop vacuuming, you must either lean it against something, something which will hold it up without allowing it to fall over, or you must fold it into its storage shape.
And Number Three: The run time is rather short. I admit that this vacuum is very powerful and therefore, even in its standard mode, it causes a large drain on a battery and I also admit that one can purchase (at quite a price!) a spare battery and charger. But I'm afraid that that option is not "in our cards" at the present time. (The cost quoted to me by Shark's representative was $129.00; you could almost buy a new vacuum cleaner for that price!)
All those "cons" being said, my wife and I are very satisfied with this vacuum cleaner. It is powerful, it picks up lots of dirt that other vacuums leave behind, and it is easy to empty the dust cup. Plus the filters are washable; this should save a fair amount of money (not even to mention the inconvenience of having to frequently buy replaceable ones).
So, as a result of our use of it, I can highly recommend this Shark IONFlex DuoClean Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum (IF201).
Thank you for reading this.
