Summary: I've had this vacuum for almost three years now, and it still works great! The suction is just as powerful as when I bought it. When the suction gets less it just means it's time to clean it out and clean the filters. The pet brush is great. We have one big dog and it works great.
Summary: I purchased this Shark vacuum after having owned two Dysons over the past eight years. I swore by Dyson for years an even poo-pooed my own mother when she told me how much better Shark vacuums were. I continued this vacuum snobbery until she purchased one for my grandmother.
Excerpt: This product is great! I have mainly hardware floors and small carpets in my house. My old dirt devil wasn't effective enough to pick up the human and dog I had. The new Shark has brought the beauty out of my carpet once again.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: Mixed feelings. Had this two months and the beater brush quit working. Thought maybe the belt was broken so I checked that (removed the screws--they claim there were tabs you turn to inspect it, but there aren't), but it was fine.
Excerpt: This is the most powerful vacuum I have ever owned. It not only picks up everything, it pulls up the carpet so that it looks like new carpet each time I vacuum. It is light weight & has a very long cord, so I rarely need to unplug & replug. I love this vacuum.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
