This little Shark vacuum does not use bags, which is a plus. Spending money on vacuum bags wouldn't be convenient. Plus vacuum bags can be a pain to change.
This vacuum came with a few attachments, which are good for getting crumbs off a couch or zapping spider webs. However, the attachments are small so using them for a bigger project like baseboards or stairs would take a while.
The Shark Turbo Stick Vac is not the most powerful vacuum I've ever used. This wasn't a problem when I first bought it though. The office we have is roughly 350sq.f and has a small area carpet and the rest in laminate flooring.
I've recently brought it home to test in the apartment that is larger and has short pile carpet. The Shark vacuum did not do well with the larger area and thicker carpet. After about ten minutes of use, the vacuum would overheat and stop working. It had to cool down about forty five minutes before it would turn on again. This meant I was spending over an hour to vacuum a one bedroom apartment. The vacuum did this regardless of how well it was cleaned out.
The rolling brushes of this stick vacuum seemed to perform well as hair magnets. After each use I had to remove large amounts of hair and fuzz from the rollers. When the vacuum was new I didn't notice this issue.
Overall, the Shark Turbo Stick Vac is a good vacuum if you want a light duty vacuum for bare floors in small spaces. If you have a larger space, and/or thicker carpet, this vacuum's performance leaves something to be desired. I doubt it will last long. But we'll see.
