I just purchased this sweeper for use in my dorm because it will clean both the carpet and tile flooring in my room. I thought it was a great deal until I opened the box and read the instructions that say that "the battery should be replaced every 9-12 months". This was not mentioned in any of the outer packaging. The replacement battery is only available from Shark for about $20. $20/year for maintenance for a $30 sweeper, and the hassle of disposing the old batteries properly (and their environmental impact) and ordering the new one? I think not! Exchanging this immediately. Don't waste your time or money!
Excellent product! Does a wonderful job on low carpet. Had no problems picking up cereal and other small debris that size. Im going to buy another!
Picks up great, and very easy to clean up with, with the whole swivle action. I love it.
I bought this for my 3-1/2 year old daughter, so she could vacuum whenever she felt like it. It has a 3-part handle, so I put together only 2 of the parts to make it her size. She loves it. It's very easy for her to maneuver, turn on and off, and put the handle up and down. It's much quieter than a regular vacuum. It picks up hair and fuzzies. It doesn't have the strong suction of a standard vacuum, but that's not what I was looking for. For surface dirt, it does a great job.
The battery died after one year. Tried to find
a replacement battery online and at local
stores could not find a replacement one.
This item doesn't deserve any stars. It spits out as much dust as it takes in. The small, rectangular drawer for catching whatever the shark "inhales" is too small and any dust particles that are not clumped together get spit out through the sides of the drawer, so I constantly vacuum over the same area and I'm vacuuming up the same dust over and over again. It is NOT worth the small amount I paid for it. I should have taken the hint when one lady said she bought it so her 3-year-old could vacuum while mommy vacuumed. That is about all it is good for.
I bought this knowing it is a sweeper, not a vacuum. I had a Shark 5 years ago and knew what they are like. But this I purchased mainly to pick up crumbs and clean under the sofa and bed.
It won't pick up crumbs and will not go under the sofa. It will go under the bed and will clean
on a very low pile carpet. The battery will last longer than 30 minutes, I know because the handles
came off and it got stuck under the bed. Had to move the bed, could be I didn't have the handles tight. It won't pull anything away from the baseboards near the floor. The other one I had did pick up kitty litter. I am thinking of returning this.
Only used one time, and that was one time too many. The brushes picked up the dirt and blew it everywhere put in container. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR MONEY AND TIME. I bought this to do just quick clean ups. In the long run after using this product, I had more of a mess then when I started cleaning.
For about $20, I wasn't sure what to expect - I purchased this great little rechargeable vac for my new tiled kitchen/dining room, but I immediately started using it everywhere! Works GREAT on carpet AND hard floors, and soooooooooooo convenient! I use it every day, so I'm expecting to have to replace the battery more often than the "once a year" the enclosed material recommended, but that's okay - I wouldn't trade this great little vac for anything :-) BTW, it's also veeery quiet (compared to other vacs or a handvac) - a great plus with napping little ones.
My wife bought one 3 or 4 years ago and just loved it until the dog chewed the power charger to pieces. Since then we've been wanting another one. She says it is just perfect for quick touch ups on floor surfaces on every thing from tile to hardwood to tight loop low pile, and some berbers. Realizing that the whole unit is only a few dollars more than a replacement charger, I decided to buy another one instead of just the charger. Now when one runs down, we just swap it out. She is tickled to have her electric broom back, and now there's no down time.
The Shark is terrific for every-day carpet sweeping. It's super easy to put together and extremely lightweight - also easy to empty. The brush bristles are long, and I have found pet hair will get tangled in them vs being picked up, so pet issues require a heavier vacuum. I use it around where my toddler spills his crumbs whether on carpet or hard surface. It's so light and maneuverable that my three year old has cleaned my entire house with it and it's a great hit with his toddler buddies, too. My seventy-ish mother loves hers also. So, to sum it up: 1) Terrific product for carpet sweeping and does a decent job on hard floors 2) Helpless old ladies can use it 3) It's cheaper than most kids toys.
I am really disappointed with this product. Although it works great and picks up just about anything on the floor, THE HANDLE BROKE OFF AFTER ABOUT A MONTH. The handle is really hard to lower to an operating position. You have to place your foot on the blue body to lower the handle. The reason for this is that the handle is held up with an extremely hard spring; I took the handle assembly apart to figure out what the problem was. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. YOU WILL BE WASTING YOUR MONEY.
Stopped working, belt slipped off, major dis assembly required to replace, now switch not working. Plus batteries cost as much as the machine itself.
If WM wants to be Green then don't sell this product.
Sell one with batts that last, and that can be repaired.
I had previousely bought one from QVC and it was awesome same brand , model and everything. this does not pick up the way the old one did.
Received this as a gift. It's cheap and feels cheap. It's light, it's noisy, does a horrible job. Am returning. And have to return fully put together bc once you put it together, you cannot take it apart.
I love this vacuum, i have a newly crawling daughter and it is just what i need to keep my floors debre free. (she sees everything). I have one rug in my living room that she plays on and i have 2 cats that roll all over it so u can imagine the hair. This vacuum gets all the hair and all the dust and just spots of stuff off our shoes from walking across it. It also picks up all the cat litter that the cats track out of their litter box. I love it. it wont pick up though if the little container is full so if you empty it everytime you use it then it works great. If this one ever messes up (plus i have had it for 3 years now) I will buy one just like it. I have hardwood through out the house and it picks up all the hair and dust too.
I absolutely love this vacuum. With 3 dogs in the house i wanted a vacuum cleaner that would pick up the dog hair still left on the floor after vacuuming with my Bissel vacuum cleaner. I found this vacuum cleaner while browsing the walmart vacuum cleaner department and after easily assembeling the product i vacuumed my floor and was shocked by the results. I couldn't believe how much dog hair my Bissel vacuum cleaner left behind.
This is a great sweeper. I use it everyday to clean up after my children. Can't do without it!
I keep one by our cat litter boxes to pick up the litter that tracks......works great....
This was the second shark sweeper I've purchased. My first one came with a vacuum I ordered and we use it everyday for quick pick me ups. The sweeper lasted longer than the vacuum. 8 years later when the first one started to slow down I decided we needed a new one. If you have kids or pets this is a must have.
