Comment:
hate the one foot reach on the attachment hose. hate that you cant buy filters only at shark. Made of cheap material so you can send in to have fixed and they will say it's abuse and charge you a ton of money. Other than that it works.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This vacuum worked properly twice, theN clogged with dirt and fuzz. Didn't go up to tank. No objects in the dust to cause this. Normal use in a generally clean home with no dogs, kids etc. very disappointed! Costs a fortune for them to fix and return! Would not recommend!

One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
It not terribly heavy but can be hard to push on med/high pile carpet making it feel a little heavier. I have cats and dogs and 3 girls with long hair in my home, I do not want my home to look or smell like its full of animals and so far so good! I did pull the canister away so that I could clean on top of my kitchen cabinets and was able to do so with ease, however it would be nice to have a little extra hose for jobs like that. The pieces detach very easily and the canister empties with ease. Overall I have been very pleased!
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
