    I'm very very happy with this vacuum. It's very light and small yet so powerful. I love that I can reach high stuff like the fan and blinds. The suction is amazing for such a small vacuum. I'm very impressed with the performance of this vacuum definitely recommend it.

    I was looking for a small vacuum for my daughter to use at college. After reading all the reviews I decided on this one. It is great. The suction is strong and pulls dirt/dust out of the carpets amazingly. I was so impressed I bought another one to keep at home. It just has a light on the front. I attached a picture of all the dust it got out of my carpet in the living room. And I have a rainbow!! yuck!!

    Great handheld without the battery woes

    Posted .

    I bought this to replace/supplement my Dyson handheld. I was having some battery issues where the Dyson would randomly shut off and sometimes not even turn on. I personally love the concept of these new handhelds and was very pleased with the power and versatility of this model. And of course, the price was definitely a huge plus. Comparing the Shark Rocket with the Dyson handheld, here is how it breaks down. Carpet goes to the Shark Rocket, the corded power of the brush head had the Dyson destroyed when it came to carpets. Hard floors was a pretty easy win for the Dyson, the Shark has a hard floor attachment but it requires a cleaning pad that needs to be washed after pretty much every use and the brush head doesn't clean hard floors that well. Ease of use goes to the Dyson hands down, no cords and no need to say more. Price is a clear cut win for the Shark, almost 100% as good as the Dyson for less than 50% of the price... These are the only two real contenders for the new class of handheld uprights and the only reason to buy the Dyson over the Shark is for the cordless convenience, but that's only if that convenience is worth about an extra $100-200.

    A Month of Usage

    Posted .

    I purchased this vacuum last month, and so far so good. It picks up pretty much everything I've tossed at it: dirt, dust, puppy kibble, hair, lint, and small rocks. Both hardwood, linoleum, and short rugs. I don't have carpet, but I have used it on my couch on the 2nd faster setting. So far what I've seen, the 2nd setting only just increases the power/speed of the brush, not the actual suction power. Vacuum comes with a ton of the typical accessories: extension pipe, crevice tool, brush tool, duster/curtain tool, floor duster, and powered carpet/upholstery brush. The motor is light, and cord management for storage is simple. I have it mounted on a wall for storage, but the built in standing storage is easy and space saving. The washable and reusable filter is a plus as well. I know eventually it will require a replacement as the foam doesn't look too durable, but so far so good - and no loss of suction yet. Will update when that starts to happen. Overall, a fantastic, versatile vacuum.

    I own a Dyson cordless V8 and have waited months to get a replacement battery pack to no avail. If they did have one, it is $129. I bought the Shark Rocket (reg. $199) for sale price of $99. It is not cordless and that is a good thing as far as I am concerned at this point. It is perfect for my tile floors and I even used it on my carpet in places and my area rugs also. I am glad I purchased it and it was $30 cheaper than the battery for the Dyson.

    Pleasantly Surprised

    Posted .

    Let's start out by saying that I've always wanted a dyson sent I borrowed one from a friend years ago. It wasn't until my best friend purchased a shark that I seriously considered purchasing one. I had been interested in the Shark Navigator Professional Lift Away but it became unavailable at Best Buy so I began considering other options. This vacuum encompasses everything the higher end model did plus it's significantly lighter and offers a few more functions in my opinion. I do think the dirt cup is small and requires emptying frequently but I think that just goes to show how much dirt and pet hair my other vacuum wasn't picking up. I love the attachments which allows me to dust and clean my hardwoods with ease, clean under furniture and get my baseboards plus the ceilings without doing some acrobatic move but my favorite thing of all has to be attaching the top base to the attachments directly to clean my stairs which always was a pain. The cord is plenty long and I'm looking at purchasing the other attachments. This is giving me way more bang for my buck compared to the dyson vacuums and I think cleans the same if not better.

    GREAT VACUUM FOR ELDERLY!!!

    Posted .

    So I don't write many reviews (selfish of me I know), but I'm hoping this will help someone who's looking for a vacuum for the same reason I was. My grandmother is 85 and still going strong, but was having a hard time keeping up with her floors - hard floors and carpet. I was initially looking for a light vacuum to help her with her carpet, and figured I'd tackle a solution for her hard floors next. I was about to buy an Oreck Magnesium from a local Oreck retailer, when I stopped by Best Buy and saw this Shark Rocket. I figured what the hell, I'll buy it and at the very least she can use it in place of a broom and dust pan if it doesn't live up to all it's hype and marketing as a powerful carpet vacuum. Well, I can tell you this thing is AWESOME. I was utterly AMAZED at what this small vacuum pulled out of her carpet. SHE was amazed at how light and easy it was for her to maneuver. It basically just pulls itself across the carpet, and glides across her hard floors. Some other reviewers have pointed out how small the trash bin is. While I agree, I can say in this case it's not an issue. In my grandmother's words, and I quote.."I will gladly empty this thing an extra time or two in exchange for how wonderfully easy it is for my old arthritic hands and arms to push around" I can't emphasize enough how exited she was. After seeing that excitement and realizing how hard these types of tasks become on the elderly, I would buy this thing if it cost 3 times what it does. So, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if you have older parents or grandparents and are looking for a vacuum that will make their lives a little easier, please consider this one. On a side note, I was so impressed I'm buying one for my own home....and I already own both a full size Dyson and a Dyson digital slim.

    This product sucks (and that is good)

    I'm surprised this little cordless replaced my Dyson canister vac. I have been pleasantly surprised at its power and performance. The attachments attach and detach easily with a nice click. After using it for several weeks I understand why Dyson chooses a cordless option - emptying the bin. It can be a bit annoying to have to unplug the vac to walk to a bin. That said, I prefer the cord because it always takes longer than 20 minutes to clean the first floor of our house (where I use this vacuum) but I can carry a bin with me so I don't have to unplug. I'm pleased now - after a few weeks - but I'll be interested to see how I feel in a year. Vacuums often perform great at first and slowly fail over time. This one offers washable filters and parts that look easy to clean so I am hopeful it will be able to keep up its performance.

    This is by far my favorite vacuum. Second time buying the same model. The first one lasted me exactly 6 years. Stopped working because I vacuumed something that broke a piece inside.

    Best vacuum out there. This is my second Shark rocket. Bought first model when it came out several years ago and very happy with it. This one's for my second floor. Use any other vacuum and Shark rocket after that and it'll still pick up a lot of dust. It gets anywhere, under your bed, couch etc.. Love it!

    excellent vacuum for all floor types

    I have always been a huge fan of Shark vacuums and this one was even better than the rest. I purchased it primarily for hardwood floors and tile as its one of the few that doesn't shoot dust out the back...surprisingly it did exceptionally well on the one carpeted room we have as well. Its very sturdy and the cord is really long so I dont have to change plugs half way through the routine. Incredible suction, extremely easy to dump the dust cup, reasonably lightweight, easy turn head and flat enough to slide under stools and tables....Im more than impressed with this vacuum! Only negative is the way it looks...strange orange/rust color....but since it comes with a convenient wall mount hanger I just hide it in the laundry room so yeah... it was worth the discount for the ugly color!

    Great, but unconventional

    Performs great, offers a great value, compact for space limited applications...and it cleans carpet like no other vacuum. However, there are two things to know about this vacuum. 1-It doesn't stand upright on its own. It doesn't seem like much, but it could alter your vacuuming habits drastically. 2- Winding the cord means you have to bend all the way down to the ground and come back up for each turn while wrapping the cord. If you can live with that, this vacuum is a little champ.

    Ok for smaller spaces with less rug area

    Our son moved out to one bedroom condo with hardwood floors and one area rug so it does the job for the area. Would not buy it for myself because the bin would be a hassle to clean every 30 minutes because it’s so small and not that easy to open and once you crack it open all the dust shoots around you and have to close and vacuum it again.

    Almost too powerful

    |
    |
    Posted .

    When using on carpet, it almost pulls you along too fast. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, except it is top heavy with all the weight in your hand and your hand gets tired- and I consider myself a strong person. The hardwood floor attachment is easier to control but when you have it flat on the floor, it is more like using a Swiffer, and you have to lift it up ever so slightly to get it to actually suck up some dirt/hair/dust. I like that it flaps open to empty, but then you have to reach your hand inside to pull the majority of the dirt out. It's unavoidable. I still like it, but even though it is a "light weight" vacuum, the majority of the weight is in your hand. When stopping to move furniture etc,, you can't simply stand it on end. You have to set it down on the floor or hold it the whole time.

    Always heard great reviews about Shark vacuums so decided to test it out and I am glad I did. This is a beast - works great on carpet as well as solid floors. I wanted a corded vacuum just so that I don`t have to be worried about battery getting discharged.

    Powerful, but just a bit annoying

    This is a nice little vacuum. It's light and small and quite powerful. It cleans quite well and I enjoy using it, though there are a few features that I find annoying. The angle of the handle makes my wrist very tired of holding it quite easily, It's rather awkward to hold at a good angle. It pulls itself forward quite forcefully and so it can feel a bit hard to control. I also find the brush attachment to not be very well designed, but that seems to be typical these days. Aside from those things it's quite a nice vacuum and I'm happy with it. Do be aware that because it is small you will be emptying it quite often. Keep a trash bag handy.

    I love this vac. Best one I have ever owned and I have had many. I have four dogs and a thirteen year old boy and the Shark can handle it all. We have a mix of wood floors, tile, wall to wall carpeting and area rugs and my Shark is so convenient it can clean them all with no fuss. I own it for three months now and see a difference in my homes cleanliness and I spend less time cleaning. I am so far very impressed. Tip wash filters as suggested (once a month)
