Terrible customer service.


Performance: If you're looking for a great upright vacuum cleaner to use at home, you'll love this Shark appliance. Not only is it highly versatile—you can simply lift the canister out for easy portability—but it also delivers pretty good performance for the price. Though it doesn't produce suction on par with the top-rated models on the market, it's also 1/3 or 1/4 the price of competitors.

Unfortunately, a number of users have complained about the customer service offered by Shark. In the event of a break down, Shark either failed to honor the warranty, took forever to respond to their complaints, or wouldn't replace the product because it was bought on Amazon. However, the majority of users have stated that the machine is durable, with no faults or flaws for the 5-year warranty period.

Features: This is one of the most feature-rich vacuum cleaners on the market. Not only is it a canister vacuum (easier to clean, no bags needed), but it's designed with a quick release switch that allows you to lift the canister out of the upright vacuum shell. This allows you to get into crevices, under tables, and behind furniture with ease. It's also great for hitting the corners of your stairs and in your car.

The Anti-Allergen Seal Technology offers excellent protection against 99.9% of dust and allergens, and the HEPA air filters will prevent the debris from escaping the cleaner as you vacuum. Not only is it designed with a versatile swivel, but there are even built-in LED headlights to make vacuuming under furniture and in dark environments a breeze.

Price: At $180, this is a vacuum cleaner definitely worth its salt. Though it's slightly lacking in suction power and overall performance, it's incredibly user-friendly, versatile, and easy to use. At the price, you won't find a better upright vacuum cleaner!
