Reviewers said they were amazed by the amount of dirt they were able to remove from their carpet with the vacuum. The device excelled in other areas too. It came away with a perfect 10.0 score for stair cleaning, pet hair pickup, ease of cleaning the machine and noise. The vacuum fared well in homes with a dog, cat or even multiple pets.

What reviewers didn't like

Even though it’s cheaper than the Dyson, it will still cost over $300. It is heavy and easily trips over if you’re not careful pulling the hose.
The 15.6 pounds is somewhat lighter than other full-size uprights, however it still may be an issue if your home is multi-level.
Despite its stellar ratings, some users noticed a few areas where the Rotator didn’t quite hit the mark. These included weight and maneuverability. This Shark came in with its lowest rating in the weight category, scoring just 7.4. Some users thought carrying the vacuum up and down stairs was daunting. As for maneuverability, some said the swivel steering made it difficult to angle the vacuum the correct way without it straying off path.
The canister for the dirt is hard to clean and the stick is too tall and cannot be adjusted.
Hard floor genie is only adequate and shorter folks may find the handle too long.
