Pros: It is light enough to tote on the stairs (I'm 68) and the smaller roller attachment makes quick work of the carpet on the stairs. The head without the roller bar is brilliant on hardwood--- the floors under the beds are the cleanest they have been since we moved in. The non-roller head also has a setting for carpets, and it is fine for throw rugs, especially with the suction control opened a bit so the whole rug does not get sucked in. The roller head is better than my uprights for carpet ( I used it after using the upright it left me embarrassed at how much dirt was still in the carpet). At first I thought it would be annoying to have to lift off the body to get at the dusting and crevice tools, but it is no big deal at all, and actually preferable to my other canister's arrangement of tools carried on top of the body, where they sometimes fall off. The motor, although more powerful than my other vacuums, is definitely quieter. Storing a canister take up more room than storing an upright, but this fits into the closet adequately (see photo), needing 3 feet of width because of the hose and roller head, but only 11 inches of depth. Alternatively, set the floor nozzle upright (it locks) and set it in front of the body (photo). This requires 30 inches of width and about 14 inches of depth in the closet. My other canister can be set vertically, so it uses less closet space, but it doesn't perform on anywhere near the same level. So I consider it a fair trade-off. Emptying the dustbin, and rinsing the filters (every 3 months), is easy.
Cons: Ideally I would have a dusting tool that is horsehair and swivels freely. The one included here is a bit too stiff, and while it can be set at various angles to make tasks like dusting baseboards easier, it does not swivel easily. I'll look for the ideal tool in the aftermarket. But this isn't enough of a flaw to lose a star. Also, the roller head, when engaged, pulls the head along a low carpet too fast to do a good job, so I had to exert a bit of a pull on it to slow it down enough to really clean the carpet. But this became second nature quickly.
And the carpet got sooo clean!!
We discovered a few holes developed in the suction hose that's permanently attached to the motorized carpet brush. I decided to call the warranty center, since we have only had the vacuum for about two years, there are still three years left on the warranty. I talked to two customer service reps and a supervisor, and none of them would warranty the $120.00 part, since it's a "wearable" item. Nowhere in the warranty description is this part listed as wearable, which I brought up multiple times. When I asked the supervisor which parts are actually covered until this deceptive warranty, he stated "just the motor". This is also not at all present in Shark's warranty section. They offered to sell me the product half off with no shipping. I told them I'd rather pay another $400 for a different brand, because they just lost a customer. Beware of Shark and their highly deceptive warranty tactics.
I did a ton of research. I knew I wanted a canister vacuum because of the amount of hardwood floors in our home. For awhile, I was dead set on a Dyson, Miele, or Electrolux. But I kept having people tell me to look into a more affordable option- The Shark brand.
I happened to come across this one on Amazon, and decided to give it a shot based off of reviews. It had everything I wanted, with exception to being bagless-I HATE emptying bagless chambers-- and the lift away feature is a huge bonus since we have 2 flights of carpeted stairs. It arrived quickly, packaged well, and ready to use in just a few minutes. Suction on hardwood floor is comparable to my Electrolux. I found it excellent. Carpet cleaning with the motorized carpet attachment I found excellent as well. With kitty litter that gets tracked into the carpet, I do have to make a few sweeps over the same area, and I didn't have to with my electrolux; its a small sacrifice for the price. The chamber for dirt is on the small side, but I found that it picked up way more than I was expecting out of my carpets. So maybe the cleaning power of the Electrolux wasn't as good as I thought? In a perfect world, I would like this to have a bagged option due to allergies and easier disposal. I am getting used to the bagless feature and it isn't quite as messy as I was afraid of and the other plus side is less waste in the landfills!
I prefer the storage features of this vacuum and I also like that there is a hook on the bottom of the stick so that you can keep the stick upright when storing. My Electrolux was always thrown in the closet haphazardly. I also really like that the 2 attachments are stored between the canister and the lift away feature. My Electrolux attachments were on the stick and were always getting knocked off and lost. This vacuum roles smoothly behind the hose and doesn't feel heavy or bulky. I also don't slam it into trim and corners as much or as often as I did previously, so I think that the turn radius is superior to my old vacuum. The LED lights on the motorized head are nice and bright and the stick and hardwood floor/motorized head attachments can go completely flush against the floor to make vacuuming under things a breeze. I don't find the noise to be better or worse than any other vacuum I've used. The cord length is sufficient for my open floor plan and so far the retractable feature works well. Overall, the vacuum seems very low maintenance and has some very nice features.
I haven't used an upright in 7 years, so I cannot compare it to those kinds but as far as a canister vacuum goes, I could not have asked for a better vacuum at this price point and I've been highly recommending to all my friends--even the "name-brand conscious" friends. After a few months of use I am really pleased and hoping that it lasts a long, long time.
I've included some pictures below for size and feature reference
So, the slot that keeps the stick upright for storage purposes has cracked .... Not a deal breaker, but I’m so disappointed as I really liked that feature. The stick no longer stands upright and if I try to make it work, I’m afraid I’ll damage that filter compartment (I will attach pictures)
I also feel as though the suction is a little less than in the beginning and I do maintain my filters. Also, I think the synthetic bristles are a little too stiff (compared to my electrolux) for my higher pile carpet, and has made the carpet look a little more worn; the carpet fibers look brushed out at the top. I am a frequent vacuumer due to pets, so it may just be wear and tear. But for a while there was quite a lot of carpet fibers in my canister.
I am more hesitant to recommend this, but at the price point it’s still not awful.
