My husband and I have been living with a really crappy vacuum for years now and decided we really needed to get one that actually worked well. I wanted to pick it out on my own and surprise my husband….and I ended up deciding to go with the Shark Rocket (product was accepted for review purposes). I saw that it had amazing reviews, but I was nervous for a couple of reasons:
1. It looked kind of flimsy because of how lightweight it is. It’s definitely smaller than any vacuum I have owned (or used).
2. My husband can be very picky when it comes to stuff like this. I was a little nervous he wouldn’t like the design, or the fact that it doesn’t stand upright by itself (it has a wall mount for storage).
I’m thrilled to report that we love it! It has a LOT of power for such a little guy! I love that it is compact enough to get in small spaces (and under beds), and I also love that the main vacuum detaches and can be replaced with the hand tools. It makes it really easy for dusting high spaces! I also like that it is lightweight and has a long cord (I vacuumed my entire upstairs without unplugging).

I was also impressed with how much it picked up! I thought my floor was already clean (we bought brand new carpet a couple of months ago), but this is what it picked up in my small living room (try not to be grossed out). I do wish that he canister held more dirt so it didn’t need to be changed every time, but that would probably make the vacuum heavier.
Thank you to all of you that recommended a Shark! So far I am pretty pleased. Anyone also own a Shark Rocket (or a different Shark Model)?
