Rotator Professional Lift-Away Vacuum Cleaner is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 153.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst purchase ever We have had this less than 1 year and the brush roll quit working. We were told that it has a 5year limited warranty but in order to exercise it I must send it back to them with a copy of the sales receipt and pay shipping cost both ways. I'm not at all happy and will not recommend this product to any one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than my old Dyson! We bought one of these for our church, liked it so much -- we bought another one for us. It really pulls the dirt and pet hairs out of carpet.

I had a Dyson animal vacuum for years which started giving my trouble. I love the vacuum so I went to Home Depot to purchase a replacement Dyson. I took the new Dyson home and was saddened by what I discovered. The newer Dyson Animal (this was a few years back) was not as effective as my older model. I took it back and decided to give the Shark a try. WOW! Not only was it cheaper, but it was more effective! I have a golden retriever mix and this vacuum was able to pick up the hair, the crumbs my kids left behind, fine dust particles, new carpet fibers... you name it. It works well on hardwood as well as on carpet. The lift away is a nice feature as it makes the unit easier and lighter when reaching to get the cobwebs on the ceiling. I have had this vacuum for several years and just recently had an issue with the hose (it tore). I contacted the company and the service was phenomenal; they sent me a replace hose free of charge. The other issue I had a year or two ago was that it just stopped working. I actually bought a brand new one to replace it but then later realized it was a safety feature. The vacuum stopped working because the hose was clogged. I easily disconnected the hose and cleared the blockage and sure enough, it fired right up. I returned the newly purchase vacuum and haven't had any problems since. I feel like I have gotten my money's worth ten-fold. I use the vacuum almost daily as my son has allergies and asthma (we are both allergic to the dog). Cleaning the filters is easy and helps me save money. If you're on the fence, try it out and see if you like it. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. :)

Replaced my Dyson with it and I am completely impressed with its power. The only downfall is the short cord, but nothing an extension cord won't cure.

I just bought this vacuum from Home Depot a week ago to replace a Dyson that I was sick of constantly tinkering with. Home Depot price matched a competitor and gave me another 10% off so I couldn't pass it up. Mine was actually an Emerald green color instead of the red. I can't speak for the longevity of the Shark but I will say that it beats the Dyson hands down in function, design and quality. Assembly was easy and this is a very simple vacuum to use with all of the functions in easy reach. Immediately I noticed that the Shark was very quiet yet it had great suction. I constantly had to unclog the Dyson if I didn't empty the canister at about 1/8th full. It was really annoying. I put the Shark to the test and vacuumed my entire 2400 sq. ft house without emptying the canister once. It kept suction the entire time and it filled the canister at least 3/4 full. The lift away feature is awesome! It makes it super easy to get corners, furniture and cobwebs on the ceiling. I also love the adjustable suction and the button to turn the brush on and off. It makes going over thick rugs and hard floors easy. The headlights are a bonus that I thought were kind of gimmicky but I do like them. This is not the powered version and it's a little heavy so I could see where it would be a little difficult for some to navigate. For the price, I'm very impressed with this vacuum. Pros: - Price - Great suction even when canister is near full - Lift away feature is excellent - Suction and brush control - Looks nice - Quiet - Easy to use - Long cord Cons: - Heavy - No power drive makes it a little harder to navigate - Mostly Plastic (Not nearly as cheap as Dyson)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Completely disappointed I have wanted to buy this vacuum for some time now. I owned a shark euro pro vacuum for many years . It was the best one I ever had in a long, long line of vacuums. This vacuum in the upright mode has hardly any suction! The light allows you to really see the dirt that it is NOT picking up! Brush roll on or off, same thing. Brush roll on hard wood floors just flings the dirt! Hose is not long enough to clean above floor, or with floor attachment. I will be returning for sure! It also is very, very heavy. Not that easy to steer, due to weight. As far as how parts dis engage , and reattach, works great. Cup is very easy to empty. Doesn't fall over when using hose. Cord is clumsy , and tangles . So not worth the money. Big, big disappointment. Frankly, I am shocked. Shark went down hill.

We have carpet upstairs and laminate downs stairs. Works perfect on both. Only down side is that we have a area rug that it tends to "auto shut off" the spindle, so I have to bend over more and lower the handle to adjust the suction. Seems to fit nicely in areas, gets close to corners, works well under the over hang of a cabinet. Very powerful suctions. When using the wand though, sometimes the whole vacuum will fall over if you are not holding onto it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a great vacuum.... BUT As far as suction and ease of use.... Awesome! But I have come across a few issues. 1. I can't find filters for it anywhere but online which take weeks to be delivered. It's inconvenient when you really need a new filter and you can't vacuum for a few weeks while waiting for the new filters to come. (Partially my fault for not "thinking ahead", partially not because the filters should be sold in the same stores that the vacuums are sold in) 2. Every vacuum I've ever owned before this one had an easy access beater bar to clean it off when it got clogged with hair/threads/etc. Not this vacuum. I have to take out 11 screws (some of which are hidden under the hose and the tiny wheels on the bottom of the base) as well as unplug the electrical connection for the lights on the front, in order to fully access the beater bar to get it cleaned and unclogged. It takes just as long if not more to just get access to the beater bar as it does to get it cleaned and unclogged.
