Not Good for Pet Hair Pick Up

I have mostly hardwood floors in my home and a husky that sheds like crazy. I have several large area rugs as well so I was really excited to purchase this sweeper in hopes that I wouldn't have to sweep with my broom and vacuum daily because it seemed so perfect and easy to use. I had to charge it for 24 hours prior to the first use (to those complaining about battery life, did you do that?) and couldn't wait to try it out. I was VERY disappointed! Although it picked up some small debris like leaves that had been tracked in from outside, it got clogged up with dog hair right away. I emptied the dust tray 3 times and still couldn't get one room cleaned. I had just vacuumed and swept the day before so I really don't recommend this product to anyone. It also was impossible to push on my rugs, even though I kept removing the pet hair from the wheels and brush. If you want to get the job done right, do not buy this! I'm returning it.
Here's what I couldn't find in other sweepers: 1. It has a side brush to pick up stuff from edges: against a baseboard, corner, under cabinets, etc. (for best results, you have to flush the side of the vac right up against the edge that you want to sweep). 2. The handle bends to 90-degrees allowing me to easily get under my sofas and vacuum completely from front to back...I don't have to move the sofas and I don't have to bend over. 3. Long battery life...I've read reviews about other sweepers with about a 10 minute battery life. Other great things that I love are that it has a setting for just floor or one for floor/carpet which allows you to easily move from floor to carpet without changing the setting; it's easy to remove the dust canister for emptying and pop it back in; and, it picks up everything on the carpet, including cat litter. I have long hair and so do my cats, so I make sure and cut out any hair that winds around the roller after each use (I've also read other reviews that recommend doing this just so it doesn't compromise the functioning of the vac). I think of myself as a smart shopper and I do a lot of research on products before I buy, especially electronic and mechanical items, and this vac blows the others away with all of its features. I'm quick to complain about less-than-stellar products, and I cannot find one CON with this vac. Bottom line: LOVE IT!!

It's OK at best

I guess this sweeper is OK for what it is, and for the price. But you can find better, although you will probably pay more. I don't think this thing has any suction, just a brush that pushes debris into a chamber (kind of like a manual sweeper). It seems to do an OK job especially on larger debris, but fine particles like sand and dust will just get push around. The build quality seems to be on par with the price and brand. It doesn't impress; and probably won't hold up long with heavy use (like in a restaurant). If you take care of it, it will be fine in most residential (light use) applications. It's also quite noisy, not just loud but also sounds bad, almost like something is wrong with it, but it's just how it is. The bottom line is that it all depends on what your expectations are. If a manual sweeper with a little more power will work for you, and you don't mind the noise, then this will work. If you want something that will pick up dust and sand with suction power, and want something quite, then look for something else, but expect to pay for it.

Very Handy

I like the Shark sweeper and use it often. It is good for picking up spills or random stuff up off the floor/carpet. I use it for quick pick ups between major vacuuming. I especially like the Shark because the battery is replaceable - many others are not. One note: if your sweeper starts acting like the battery isn't charging (it will only run a few seconds before stopping), before replacing the battery, take it apart and clean all the hair out of the insides and around the belt. This solved my problem when replacing the battery didn't.

I wanted to love it, Not good for hardwood dust.

I am a review shopper. After reading the reviews with an open mind I bought this to use on my hardwood and tiled areas for dust,pet hair and small dirt. Thought this would work perfect for just that. Well not so. It is good at picking up larger pieces of dirt or stray dog food ect. For dust and dog hair on the hardwood not so much. It just brushes most of it around. It takes me ten times longer to use this then my broom and dust pan bc in order for it not to push/throw it all around I have to go super sloooww. If you are looking for a sweeper to pick up under your childs highchair after snacks then yes this would work. If you are looking for something to clean up dust and hair on hardwood not so good. Very disappointed.
I bought this for a quick pickup without having to lug the heavy vacuum cleaner out all the time..I have a cat, and I was amazed at how efficient it was in picking up the cat hair...I am 80 years old, so the weight is another factor for me..I can handle it very easily...

Very disappointed

I had one of the original Shark cordless sweepers but, after years of cleaning up after 3 cats, it finally died. I was excited to get the 'improved' VX3 but, boy, was I disappointed. It doesn't clean as well as the original and,yes, you can empty the dirt by touching the button and it empties from the bottom. But then you have to touch it to close it and because hair, etc. has leaked through the side of it. Then you have to clean the base because dirt has leaked there, too. And this is the same thing every 5 min. because I thought maybe I was letting it get overfull. I am so disappointed - I wish I had my old one back. They have 'improved' the new one to death.

LOVE IT!!

My Aunt also owns this sweeper and after using it at her house several times I had to get it. It is light weight, easy to use and great for the kitchen. I also use it for touch-up in living room. My boys (3 and 5) are also fascinated by it and fight over who will vacuum next. That alone makes it worth every penny!

Great product/light weight

this was purchased for my aunt who is 73/disabled/on a walker. She can use this to clean up family room in between help. She had one before that lasted over 7yrs. Light weight and very powerful and great price.
Bought this model for my mother-in-law who is in her 80's. She loves it. I have an older model from Shark and use it almost daily. Wouldn't be without one.
