very good shark vacuum. picks up really well and the suction is good.its also pretty quiet.and i not only own one i have two of them.the price i paid for them was well worth the price.it picks up really good .the suction is good.i also would recommend this shark vacuum to my friends and family.
This thing does a good job, but for thorough cleaning I go to my Kirby.
I agree with most of the review by oh4theluvof ; except for the filter issue. I don't track by "3 months", just whenever I notice a decrease in suction then I wash the filters - which need about a day to dry fully. The Shark does fall over easily when using the wand - the hose is not very flexible, nor long.
I go to my Shark because it is bag less - our dog sheds a lot, and no sense in paying for bags for the Kirby. It gets the dog fur off the carpet, just not very well along the walls/edges. It is easy to empty the canister and the dust does not fly around.
The small spinner brush head has no torque, so it bogs down with pressure - it also clogs easily with long dog fur (or wife's hair), which gets into the mechanism & has to be pulled out by hand.
The Shark is far better than the Kenmore canister vac I used to own, but not as good as my Kirby.
