I love this vacuum so far. it does take a second to adjust to moving it but if you have patience it becomes easy.
The extra attachments made me so happy since I am short reaching our ceilings involved a ladder and now I don't have to use one for most of the house.
also it does stand on it's own perfectly, I read a lot of reviews saying it won't and it's too top heavy. But I don't believe a lot of them knew to move the motor to the from of the vacuum. once fully reading the instructions I figured it out and it's fine.
Poor design, all the weight is on top on the handle and vacuum pulls you. My back has been out for three days now since I used it- just once. Very awkward and strange design and the fact that it doesn’t stand upright if you are pausing is so inconvenient.
I like the suction I was wondering if Shark makes another vacuum with this power but different design.

We would like to thank you for taking the time to share your review. As you mentioned this stick vacuum will not stand on its own. With this being said, there is a hook located on the bottom front of the wand that you can store the handheld portion of the vacuum on. We would like to learn more about your use of the vacuum. Could you please share your contact information and a brief description of the issue with us via firstname.lastname@example.org?
I really like this vacuum but mine does not come with the headlight that is advertised in the description. Did anyone else have this issue? The suction is great and it’s easy to use... but the headlight would be helpful- and it’s one of the reasons I chose this model.
Love this vacuum, was ready to go out of box.
Only negative is the fact that others mention as well - the lack of the ability to just stand it upright on it's own- it can't! You have to place it against a wall or lean it down on say the the arm of the couch. You have to purchase a separate bracket to hang in on a wall, but I just store mine in my closet so don't need that.
Very easy to empty the canister, just press button and the flap opens to empty debris right into the trash can. I do this every time just to keep it cleaned out. The foam filter is so easy to get to to just "bang" it out outside to get most of the dust out. I haven't had long enough to wash it out, I believe the directions say to clean it once a month or so. The motor is in the top of this vacuum so the hot air blows out the back just under where you hold it and if you are a weak person due to physical limits this may not be for you since the motor is in the top. It swivels so nicely around on hardwood, laminate and my rugs. It has 2 settings, floor and carpet which are so easy to switch between as control is right at thumb level. Found this very easy to use and move around and to pop off bottom part to use without the floor attachment to vacuum baseboards, corners of my walls, stairs, couch, etc. Overall I recommend, especially if you catch a good sale. I am very pleased, have not "enjoyed" vacuuming this much. I always had Kenmore canister vacs with bags that you pull along behind you.
Unfortunately it does not fit under my couch like they show in the pictures, I only have a 3 1/2" clearance under mine and the head doesn't fit.
My condominium is 1400 sq. feet with a 50/50 combination of hardwood floors and carpeting and/or area rugs; no stairs. So the vacuum had to perform well on both surfaces. I have no pets to worry about hair issues. I loved my previous vacuum cleaner (but has sadly out-lived its' life expectancy) for its' good cleaning performance so I was particularly critical of this Rocket HV301. I found both pulled up about the same amount of waste so I was very pleased about that. Now for the ease of use: This Rocket out-performed my expectations in every way. It is very light weight and easy to maneuver around the living space; under furniture, getting into corners, easy on the arm when operating either on hard or carpeted surfaces. It has an extremely long power cord allowing me to cover the entire condo in merely 2 outlet moves! It came with great extra cleaning utensils and attachments. It breaks down in a jiffy into two pieces so it can be stored away upright, self standing, in a very small foot-print. (Space is always an issue in condo living.) I empty the waste after each use but the filters are cleaned monthly. The waste disposal is a breeze since that part of assembly detaches and the waste is dumped into my bagged container under the kitchen sink, and the foam filters can be washed there too. My only caution is some of my area rugs are fringed on the ends, so I have to be careful they don't get eaten by the power brush head. This vacuum is the best thing I've purchased in a very long time. It has cut down my vacuum cleaning time by 30% and my back feels great when I'm done (another reason I wanted a new vacuum cleaner). Love it!
This was not what I was expecting, being a first-time user of this form of vacuum, a stick. I'm used to the regular shape vacuum. I thought it would be good for the storage space, having to hang it on wall; however, to hang the vacuum you have to buy the accessory piece. Furthermore, the picture on top where they show the vacuum is in the upright position, by its self, is not accurate for me because of the motor is on top you really cannot just prop it up, I had to lay the whole vacuum flat on the ground because of the uneven weight distribution. I see myself easily dropping and breaking it, if I am in a rush to grab something or having to answer the phone/door, unexpectedly and it can't be prop up in the upright position. Also due to the motor being on top, it felt heavy to hold.

Look no further!!! I am obsessed with this vacuum. It is such an ease to use and gets in just about every nook and cranny of my house. I have mostly hardwood floors so the small attachment works great. I was so worried it would scratch my brand new hardwood, but I’ve been using it for almost a year and there is no signs of scratching!!!! On my area rug I use the large rug attachment, it picks up everything. I can’t say enough. My fave vacuum.
Warning - this vacuum does not stand up on its own!

I have been looking forward to receiving this vacuum and using it on my hard floors until I found out (after putting it all together) that it will not stand up on its own. Very disappointed. This is not a cheap vacuum and I should not be expected to lean it against my furniture or wall (and risk scratching my furniture or making a mark on my walls) nor should I have to lay it on the floor (my back does not tolerate bending) while I am using it. This is a lousy design. I have never known a vacuum that would not stand up on its own. I was far happier with my $30 dirt devil stick vacuum but it broke and they do not make it anymore. For a $200 stick vacuum, this should be way more user-friendly. Terrible.
