Rated 4 out of 5 by Sportdog Handy Vacuum with no strings or cords attached
This vacuum is quite a bit stronger than the last Shark vac I bought at Walmart. (9volt ???) it works great right now and it is such a handy vac to use on pet hair, dust and other waste carried into the house by our pets. Better stand too.
My fear is that the battery pack will suffer the same declining strength as the lesser-powered earlier Shark vacuum. Maybe I would be wise to buy a spare now ????
Overall, I really like it, but I think it was a bit pricey and I don't look for it to last very long.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lejgirl71 Love it!
This is the best little vacuum!!! I bought it to keep up with the hair from my 2 cats and it by far, does that. I think the previous customer got a bad unit because, for a cordless vacuum, this thing has amazing suction and handles pet hair with ease! It holds its charge for a good amount of time and I have even used it for light cleaning of my carpeted stairs with great results.

So far this vacuum works good. A little on the expensive side. I've only been using it for about three weeks and the previous brand I was using worked good for a month before it quit. The Shark seems to have a lot of suction but is a little difficult to take apart to empty. It's main use is around the litter box so it needs to be dumped often. I think I need to find litter that doesn't track so bad. As of now I'm pleased with the performance.

I bought this as a gift for my mother and so far it has worked exactly as we expected and is nice looking. The only thing I can find wrong is thatthe brush attachment is worthless as far as suction goes. Since I didnt buy it for use with the brush it hasn't caused any disadvantage.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Oldbarn Must charge for 16 HOURS between uses!
You read that right... those are the instructions inside the box. Not only that, but you must fully drain the battery before recharging it. Too bad they don't list that on its features online. I want a hand vac that can handle moving from upholstery, carpet and hard flooring -- that's why I picked this cordless vac. I figured I would give it a try but spring for the almost double-cost Hoover lithium battery hand vac if I wasn't impressed. I just can't imagine the inconvenience of being without a hand vac for an entire day b/c it needs to spend almost 3/4 of a day recharging. Glad I didn't finish unpacking it... Back it goes!
Rated 1 out of 5 by KountryKat Didn't last 15 minutes
Purchased this with hesitation as I have not had good luck with rechargeable vacuums in the past. But with the good reputation of Shark products, I decided to give this a try. I followed the directions to the letter - charging for the full 12 hours prior to first use - excited to use it for the first time primarily around the litter boxes to pick up the stray litter from my kitties paws. Worked great in this aspect. Very strong suction until the filter gets clogged up and then stops picking up anything - this only took 15 minutes and my house is pretty clean. More disappointment when I started to use the rotating brush attachment. Worked for two flights of stairs before it just decided to stop rotating. I followed every troubleshooting tip in the book to include completely cleaning the brush to free it of any trapped hair/fur ~ all to no avail!
I do not recommend this product for the cost. You truly are better off with a broom and dust pan.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Calium Good little vac
The Shark does a great job on cat hair and is MUCH better at everything than my old dust buster. Picking up crumbs & powdery dry spills are easy. The nits that kept me from giving 5 stars:
- Could use longer lasting lithium battery.
- A smart-charger would mean you could store vac in base without damaging battery.
- A longer & thinner attchment tool would give better reach into narrow spaces. (between car seats)
Rated 5 out of 5 by aus123 I wish I bought this sooner!
This was exactly what I was looking for. If you have pets and want to keep your furniture hair free without using your huge vacuum cleaner, than you won't regret this purchase!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kouga Shark Hand Vac
This is great for cleaning the car, but it doesn't reach between my seat and door. Charge lasts a long time and the dust cup is easy to empty.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dilbertsmom1 Love Shark Products
I own this and have for several years. I purchased this one as a gift for my daughter. She loves it so much and wanted one for her home to get up all the dog hair on her furniture. I give it 5 stars because it is a great product as are all Shark products. I have several Shark products (steam mop, Shark Professional, Shark carpet and hardwood cleaner). I am on my second Shark vacuum because I gave my daughter (the same one) my first because she needed a good vacuum. I am purchasing a Shark lift-away for the other daughter for Christmas. They are a great value.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jiohn I am a remodel contractor, best vacuum I have over had.
Believe me I have had them all.
Has all the attachments you could ever want.
Get spare parts from manufacture is easy, simple and fast.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vincitore The only negative is that the charging stand that attaches to the wall is very flimsy. When removing unit from charging stand it feels like the base may break. The unit has excellent power and suction, easy to empty. We have these in our main home and summer home and they are great for fast cleanups
Rated 5 out of 5 by nbrtmpr I love this product!!!! Convenient to use, lots of power, picks up hair ( I have 3 cats) and is just a great all a round great product...
Rated 5 out of 5 by TheDonovan Great Product
I have owned a Shark Hand held vacuum for 7 or 8 years. It works just as good today as it did when I first bought it. I ordered a new motor online a couple of years ago figuring the one I have will go any time now. Well it still hasn't it's great. I vacuum my cat's hair and also the litter around her litter box. The person who had such a problem with hers sounds like she received a lemon. She should have returned it and got another one. Mine still is charged after three hours of on and off use. I can't imagine being without it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by knowmystuff123 I purchased this cordless vac about 1 1/2 years ago. I absolutely love it.....I am now on line looking for replacement filters because I would like to keep it forever!! I've used many prior to this, but this is by far, the best cordless vac I've ever had....oh, and I have 2 cats which shed hair constantly although never a problem cleaning up with this mini-vac.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ChuckW3 Awesome hand held vacuum
Awesome hand held vacuum. CR listed it as a recommended buy and I agree
Rated 5 out of 5 So far I love it
Have not had this product long enough to rate it. I have used it in my car and for small spills around the house. It was a nice surprise to see how powerful it is and the run time is very good before I had to charge it. I liked it well enough that I will order 2 more for gifts to friends.
Rated 5 out of 5 by slswartzrn Great price
Researched hand vacs and found the best price for the Shark hand vac at Walmart. Happy with product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alexis2 Great ahnd held cordless vac
I bought this for my daughter in college, Its perfect for her small dorm room.
Space saver cordless vac. Good suction. Perfect for her.
Perfect for cars and window sills clean up jobs that close attention without hauling big vac around.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mmg22 Worth every penny
very powerful & great quality for the price
only small complaint would be that it is a little heavy but def. worth the money
Rated 5 out of 5 by ELKINS very satisfied with unit.
I am very impressed with the unit.It has exceptional suction
Rated 3 out of 5 by kris10lambert Great suction! Only problem is the attachment come off when vacuuming if the suction is too much.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Abbasmirza The Worst Vaccuming Experience in my Entire Life!
One might think that the more he/she pays, the bettrr product he/she will receive. Not true-at least about the Shark Cordless hand-Held Vaccum!
I was very disappointed to find out that my newly purchased cordless Shark would not stay charged for more than three minutes every time that I had it charged fully. Furthermore, the machine wasn't able to pick significant amount of pet hair as its sponsors had promised. I was deeply disappointed.
However, when I tried to do the same pet-hair cleaning, using my regular Hoover vaccuum cleaner, the experience was one of awe and amazement! I love my Hoover, which I purchesd it from Walmart. On the other hand, I do not recommend the Shark Hand-held Vaccum to any one, even if he/she has won in lottery!
Rated 2 out of 5 by IDYFRANK MOTORIZED BRUSH DOES NOT LAST LONG
I have a 15.6 volt model which worked well in the beginning but both the battery life AND MOTORIZED BRUSH have limited lifespans. In my case one year before the tiny motor in the motorized brush died. So that was $50 for one year, although I can still use the basic vac it has a limited run time on a limited battery.
Rated 5 out of 5 by kcnurse Great little clean up machine! Great price, too. I use it everywhere! Love the attachments!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Archaeologist Great little helper!
I have rotator cuff problems and lifting my big vacuum is often too much for me. This little guy steps in and does the job whether is crumbs on the counter or floor or cat hair on the sofa.
It is light weight and easy to use the accesories.
The only problem would be that it doesn't hold a lot of dirt! But then, it is small.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MinnieMaid I love this Shark handheld vacuum!
I don't usually write reviews, but this particular Shark handheld vacuum is worth it! I had originally bought the lesser Shark model, the green one, for twenty dollars cheaper, and it was garbage in comparison with this one! This SV780 Shark, the lavender one, has so much more suction. Spend the extra money! Plus, this shark has a station to place the Shark while it is being charged. It's GREAT!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasBonnie quick cleanup
So far no problems. excellent suction for picking up crumbs around the house and also trash on the floor in the car.
Previous hand vacs had problems with battery holding the charge when it got older--no problem so far.
Rated 5 out of 5 by russbow98 Works great for the purpose for which it was acqui
The only problem is trying to put it back in the charging stand. It is a bit difficult. I am sure with time I'll get the hang of it. But for the occasional little mess, MUCH easier than pulling out the big vac, or even the smaller corded one we use. We are happy with it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by halmann This is probably the 5th or 6th Shark hand vac I've owned over the last dozen years. Replacement batteries were priced at nearly the cost of a new unit so I merely replaced the units when they died. Luckily, I saved all my assessories.
All I wanted was a reasonably priced cordless hand vac with extension tubes so I could sweep in corners, clean up small accidents WITHOUT BENDING OVER and vacuum the occasional spider on the ceiling without dragging out the shop vacuum.
IMPORTANT - This particular model doesn't have the extension tubes but I was able to adapt two of the older ones from my past purchases.
With my specially adapted extensions, it works perfectly for me. The batteries last longer per charge and it seems to have a bit more power than the older units. This is the best one so far.
