Yes, this is not a vacuum, but a sweeper, and I love it. It picks up all that I have sweeped on carpets and tile floors. Vacuuming hurts my back and this is so light weight, that I actually enjoy using it. I have two in-door cats and it picks up my pets hair fantastically. The noise is so low that it doesn't scare my pets. My housekeeper likes it so much, that she went out and got one too. I highly recommend it. P.S. Most people don't realize there is batteries that need to be replaced after 9-12 months.
I Love it. I used the lady's i work for and now i have got to get one. They are great!!!!
I read some of the reviews on here and just remember its a sweeper not a vacuum. It works by the force of the brush, it does'nt have suction. I thought this product was just what is says it to be. It done the job as advertised. I thought the product was awsome for it to not have suction power.
my wife loves it so much-= so glad i got it for her-she handicapped also and it helps a lot -wayne
Bought this for my wife for quick pickups and so far it has exceeded our expectations in every way. I went to our walmart to buy the shark vx2, but they were out of stock. I took a chance on the vx1 and it cleans all our floors great. You can go from carpet to hardwood to vinyl floors without messing around with height adjustments too. A great product for a low price!
Why I didn't I buy this sooner? I have 2 toddlers and under the table gets messy at each meal time. So, A yr ago I bought one of those powerless sweepers that you just push back and forth and the brushes sweep up crumbs. It worked okay, I guess, but I was still unsatisfied. Bought this Shark 2 weeks ago and love it!! And get this...the Shark sweeper costs less than the powerless sweeper that doesn't even work that great! Loves:
-the green color
-as instructed on packaging, I don't plug it into the charger between uses, so it's just "grab & go"
-I have touched up after meals for several days without having to charge it
-crumb tray is easy to empty We'll see how it holds up in the long run. But for the price (& .97 shipping!!!) I'm crazy happy. Tip: If you turn it upside down for some reason, the crumb tray does dump out into the head of the vac. Not a negative feature, just good to know ;).
This product is the wirst sweeper I've used. Out of the box, did great. Picked up cat hair with ease. Plugged it in the wall. It was not knocked over, dropped or jarred in any way while charging. After a full charge, it rattled, did NOT pick up cat hair and ran very weakly. In my opinion, this product was a total waste of money. I never use this product now that's how bad it is.
Don't waste your money! This is the worst cordless sweeper I've ever used. It basically just spreads the dirt around and doesn't pick up crumbs at all. You have to push it VERY slow for it to do anything at all and it doesn't get into corners or edges either. I kept using it thinking that maybe it wasn't fully charged or something but even after 3 full charges it still is worthless. I'm going back to my swivel sweeper, which is awesome!
I bought this broom to just have on hand to tidy up after my cats and their cat tree. I use this electric broom for everything now in between vacuuming!!! Great find! Now, just if I could get it to fly I would be set!
I love this sweeper! I'm a stay-at-home mom with 2 small kids who love to make messes, and this is my favorite household helper. It picks up cereal and popcorn from my carpet and my laminate floors. We bought this to replace my DustBuster, which had just died. I'll bet I've been using this 2-3 times a day. My kids even fight over who gets to use it. We still have to lug out the real vacuum a couple times a week, but this has really made day-to-day cleaning much easier for me.
i am handicapped but i can take this sweeper with me and my chair and sweep to my hearts content...and what a great job it does...buy it! you'll like it!!
I have had one of these for almost two years. It works great for quick clean-ups in between regular vacuuming. It is not a replacement for a household vacuum, but handy for small jobs. Works great, got one for my daughter and daughter-in-law. My 4 year old grandson loves to use it, it's very easy.
We bought this because the box said "Picks up what your vacuum can't!" and we thought "YAY!". We live in a little apartment and need a small vacuum that doesn't take up much space. However, the instructions say specifically not to pick up thread or fabric scraps with it--I am a seamstress, so this is no good! It also wouldn't pick up cat litter that our kitty had tracked into the bedroom--no good! In the end, it's not good for high pile carpets, just bare floors and really low pile carpets (you know, 'office' carpet). It DID work fantastically to pick up things right on TOP of the carpet and cleaned up bare floors nicely---but, again, buy a vacuum if you have regular carpet, because this little 'sweeper' will do you no good.
The Shark acts more like a minnow. Suction power is very weak and you have to roll over an item two or three times. No suction power near corners- forget about it!
THIS VAC LOOKS LIKE A GREAT PRODUCT, BUT DON'T BE FOOLED. I BOUGHT A MONTH AGO, & ALREADY BROKE. THE LINT FROM THE CARPET KEPT GETTING STUCK IN THE SIDE REELS, SLOWING THE MOTOR DOWN. I HAD TO KEEP ON PULLING THE LINT OUT BY HAND. FINALLY, THE MOTOR GAVE OUT & I THREW IT OUT THE WINDOW ONTO THE DRIVEWAY I WAS SO FURIOUS!!!
I have mixed feelings about this item. For someone who lives alone and has mixed hard wood floors and area rugs this item seems to be about a B-. If you keep up with it every two days or so it works pretty well. If you have someone in your home with long hair i dont really suggest this product for you. Long hairs tend to get stuck in the rotating parts. It Picks up small bits of things that are solid well but in corners really has no suction for dust or small pet hairs and such so its not good in that sense. But for $30 cant really argue too much the bottom line is just use it like every day or two and it will make a difference
I've owned 2 Shark carpet sweepers before...and LOVED them. They pick up pet hair better than my expensive vaccum! (They have also saved some wear and tear on said vaccum.) The only problem I've had, is the life of the rechargable battery. After 6-9 months the battery is used up faster than the 20-30 minutes of running time the company says it has. At just over a year of usage, I've had to replace the Shark sweeper. I would happily replace a $30 sweeper once a year, to have the cleaning power it has, though. (I bought a $60 Shark sweeper, and it lasted about 6 months longer than the $30 model.)
My mother saw my Shark sweeper, and borrowed it to use in her RV because of it's small size, and now she's sold on the Shark. It's easy to store in the RV; and cleans the carpet and flooring really well.
so light and yet it really lifts up the dirt and hair.I use it everyday Cleans cat hair right up! It stores easily because it takes very little room!
I had surgery 2-weeks ago and I use this sweeper to clean my rugs and tile floors. It is so light and powerful, I can push it around without pain and it does "a great" job. The battery last a long time too. I am still waiting for it to run down and I sweep every day (I have a shedding dog).
I bought Bissell sweepers for years, having to replace them frequently because they broke one way or another. After reading reviews for this sweeper, even though the price was low (quality?) and it was an older version, I bought it. I was so surprised by how well it cleaned! The swivel feature made handling easy and the debris cup was easy to empty. My only quibble is that the recharging plug that fits into the unit is hard to plug in. It has two tiny prongs that need to fit into to tiny holes. Otherwise, it is an excellent buy!
