Rocket Powerhead Upright Vacuum Cleaner is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love that it fits under my bed! Very light and powerful. This is a very light vacuum without any attachments other than the roller for hardwood floor and brush for carpet. It requires minimal assembly without the need of tools. I like how light this is and the first time in years I can vacuum under my bed. The pop-up dust cup is very easy to remove to empty, which is good because it's small and you will need to empty it frequently. It worked great in my bedrooms because I have Berber carpet, but my basement has new thick carpet and it was hard to push even when switching to the "thick carpet" setting. The hardwood floor brush is very soft so it won't scratch or wear out your hardwood floor. I like it better than having to sweep because sweeping just lifts dirt up in the air. I give it a 5 star because it's light, powerful, and it reaches under my bed. Some people probably would like some attachments for furniture and corners, but then it wouldn't be so light anymore and this is one of the features I like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was like Christmas here this morning, opening the box... I guess I don't get out much, but I didn't know there were vacuum cleaners out there that are this nice, this powerful, for this price! We got it out of its box this morning, got it together (no biggie) plugged it in, and enjoyed trying out all these features... the handling is so cool, being a swivel type design, so you can go around corners so easily, and even feels as if it is self-propelled, not heavy at all - and the amount of dust and cat hair it picked up after a very brief session of vacuuming, very easy to empty the filter cup, two speed power, and two brush heads so that you can go over hard floors with less impact to the surface (our floor is cork in the kitchen, and it's very gentle but effective) and the deep cleaning setting is so awesome, there was cat hair, dust, and crumbs that I was surprised to find in the carpet...Suffice it to say that I am tickled pink with my new Shark Powerhead Vacuum! If anything ever happens to this one, I will run to my nearest Home Depot to quickly buy another!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product. I struggled with how to rate this product. Initially I wasn't going to recommend it, and thought it may be worth two (2) stars. This was based on there are absolutely no attachments, like a stairs/crevice/or brush tool, not even a hose for the attachments or a place to connect the hose. Plus like others have said about the canister for the debris, it is very small compared to other vacuums. However, after further thought and usage of this product I changed my mind. We use a $800 vacuum every other day. It has all the bells and whistles, but it is not a bag less vacuum. We do not use any of the tools that came with it, since we use a bag less handheld for the stairs and furniture. So in all fairness I can not say not having hand tools with this upright is a negative in our case. The size of the bag less canister remains a bit of an issue. Although emptying the canister is an easy task. I ran the Shark Rocket over an area where we had just vacuumed with our $800 upright. To my surprise the Shark picked up animal hair where our expensive vacuum failed to do so. This was having the Shark set on "thick" carpeting, and running the 2 speed motor on the lower speed. I imagine running it on high may provide better results, although I was completely satisfied at the lower setting. The Shark is very light, and moves with almost no effort. The maneuvering of this vacuum is rather enjoyable to see how easy it is to get close to furniture and baseboards. It is HEPA rated for the filter. It's not too noisy, and the cord is approximately 25 feet in length, so it is more than ample. This vacuum is also a nice looking piece of equipment. Coming with a 5 year warranty is certainly a plus over other vacuums. Negatives: Possibly the size of the debris canister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shark Rocket The Shark Rocket Powerhead is about as handy as a vacuum can be with everything at your fingertips. You simply press a lever with your foot and the dirt canister just pops out for you to empty. It comes with two brushes. One for carpet and one for bare flooring. They are very easy to swap and can be done in just a few seconds making this a really versatile vacuum. It perfotms well cleaning. I have used it on carpet, area rugs, tile and hardwood. It performs well on all of the surfaces. The head pivots for sharp turns around furniture and it cleans closely around the edges of walls and furniture. The powerhead is smaller than one on an upright so it gets under things better. Overall a really handy and powerful vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great upright vacuum cleaner. My wife and I have only been using this vacuum for about four weeks and we are both very happy with its performance. First, it is lightweight, but yet has a powerful vacuum action. The beater brushes for carpeting and bare flooring is one of the main reasons we ordered this unit. The two brushes are easily interchangeable and do an excellent job of loosening up embedded dirt on carpeting or crevices on tile and wood flooring. The brush that is not in use is easily stored in the special container that is attached to the unit's wand and thus will not be misplaced. The "dust cup" can be easily removed, emptied, and reinstalled in only minutes. We currently have a built-in whole house vacuum that takes several minutes of preparation in order to use. However, now with this Rocket powerhead we can store it in a closet and quickly pull it out for immediate use as needed. The unit appears to be well-built and we expect it to provide many years of service. Well done Shark!

Assembled in under ten minutes, without tools, this vacum paid for itself the first time I used it. Seriously. We have an area rug we love in a high traffic area of our home. We thought we would need to replace it because our old vacum could not clean it. The first thing the Shark bit was that rug. And it shook the cat hair clear out of it. Now the rug is fluffy under foot and good as new. The cost of the Shark was within a few dollars of what the new rug was going to be. And compared to our other vacum The Shark is much easier, even fun, to work with. You won't find yourself avoiding your floors. Why? Because of the Sharks design, weight and most important of all: Because it works, it cleans! Carpets, hardwood floors, whichever, when you finish, you will have accomplished your task, not shifted dust and wasted time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upright vacuum I have hardwood floors and carpeting in my house so having a lightweight versatile vacuum is a necessity for me. This unit has interchangeable heads so you can use the Gentle Touch floor brush for the hardwood and vinyl flooring and swap to the deep cleaning carpet brushroll for the carpeting. This unit has great suction power and I'm amazed every time I use it how quickly the removable dust cup fills up even when the floor doesn't look dirty so I know this is doing a great job. It is so easy to empty the dirt that I'm quickly right back to vacuuming again. It's easy to use with the swivel head to get into all of the corners and under furniture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing on hardwood floors! It only took me about 10 minutes to assemble while I was watching TV. I first tried the carpet roll brush because that was what came pre-installed. I was impressed with the suction and how well the vacuum cleaned my rugs. I was most excited to try the hard floor brush. It was pretty easy to change out the brush rolls. When I started vacuuming my hardwood floors, I was was thrilled with the results. Before I would have to vacuum and then dust mop. Now I can get my floors clean in one step. The only negative comments that I have are that I will still need to use a crevice attachment to get dirt around the baseboards (pictured) and there are a few features that could have made this vacuum better: lights, being cordless, and attachments.
