THIS POST NOW HAS A GIVEAWAY! Who Wants a Shark Under the Tree??

 Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

THIS POST, THANKS TO THE SPONSOR, HAS BEEN REVISED TO NOW OFFER A GIVEAWAY. ONE LUCKY WINNER WINS THIS SHARK POWERHEAD VACUUM. US entrants only.

Shark Rocket Powerhead
Let me introduce you to the only shark you're going to want under your Christmas Tree this year... in fact, it might be the only item you want under the tree this year, it's just that good! The picture above is what's in the box. It's two rollers, the vacuum, the vacuum stick, and a case that attaches to the vacuum for the roller that's not in use.

The rollers are different colors so you know if you have carpet or hardwood in there.
If you've been here before, you may know that I'm not the actual greatest at putting things together on my own. This was a cinch though, and even interchanging items for different kinds of use didn't cause me a problem. Right now I'm talking about the rollers. To get into the compartment where the rollers were, I simply popped the buttons as designated on each end, popped a roller in and replaced the top. Good to go...even for directionally-challenged me. ;)

The rollers are different colors so you know whether the one for carpet or hardwood is attached, at a glance. The roller you are not using slides into the carriage compartement that attaches to the handle with velcro, keeping it at your fingertips in just a moment's notice. When I went to vacuum in low-to-reach places that required a low angle, that velcro strap came in handy because i just used it to switch the case around a bit to accommodate me.

Attaching the rollers is as easy as pushing open the lid
and popping the brush you want, in/out.
Not only is it an extremely easy to put-together vacuum, and an extremely easy to use one as well. It's also very light-weight! Recovering from my surgery, I definitely appreciate that it's about a pound to push, and nine pounds total to carry (not including the cord). I used this in every room in the house and didn't have to rest at all afterwards. I'm nearing the end of my 'getting better' stage, but it's still hard for me to push. With the Shark Rocket Powerhead, it really was not a big deal. I thought sitting down to rest was going to be in the order of things when I finished, but I was fine and went on to do other things when I was done.

Easy to read instructions on the vacuum itself

The vacuum has easy-to-read instructions all over it, one of which is the suction control. All you have to do to ensure this vacuum keeps its suction, is rinse and dry the filter once a month. Easy peasy, and nice! I'm glad though that they put a note on the vacuum to remind you to do this... it seems like it should be a given, but honestly when you pull out the vacuum to clean up, the filter is usually the last thing on your mind. Or at least, that's true with me. With the written reminder, I'll be better able to keep up with things. I figured I'll rinse the filter out the first of every month, that way it's an easy thing to remember.

Easy to run over multi-layered carpets.
This vacuum is lightweight and a joy to use!
You can run it over multi-layered carpets and it will adjust to the height well. It also runs on bare or hardwood floors (with the proper roller, as discussed above, attached). When I was using it on the area rug you see pictured above, I was very careful, sure it was going to snag and pull the edges when I moved over from it to the carpeted floor. If you would have seen me, you'd have laughed, but whatevs!! It's a big deal when a vacuum sucks up the edge of an area rug (that burning carpet smell as it gets stuck around the roller, ugh!! not that I'd um...know about that kind of thing firsthand ;) ). This one breezed right over the layers, and I was able to breathe much, much easier.

The Shark Rocket Powerhead Pivots.
The vacuum pivots in both directions with ease, so you can get around corners and furniture without a hassle. I was so happy with the pivoting that I was doing a little pivot dance while I was vacuuming. My child asked me if that was a part of the review and I told him it absolutely was a part of the review! :)

It also lays flat on the ground so you can get underneath the furniture.
It also lays flat on the ground so you can get in and under furniture with no problem. No more bumping the couch or bedframe and having to stop what you're doing. Say it with me: Goodbye dust bunnies! This is my 'almost favorite' feature of the vacuum. I was able to get right down on the ground and push this baby to the nether regions of the under-the-bed world where dust goes to hide. It went in and did its job, and came back out like nobody's business. Nice, Shark... very, very nice! I didn't get a picture of me flat on the ground testing it out, simply because I don't want my readers to laugh at me, I want you to laugh with me. ;)

The dirt catcher location is my favorite feature.
Besides the actual power of the vacuum, which of course trumps every little gadget and perk, my favorite thing about the vacuum is the location of the dirt catcher. Pop it out with the touch of a button to open and empty, but in the meantime it stays conceled in this nice little compartment. I think that's awesome. I don't like the compartment on the upright part of a vacuum because it just looks ugly when the dirt starts getting in there. No worries with this one, the dirt in the cup is concealed inside of the vacuum cover.

This is a vacuum I love. This is my early Christmas present for me. This vaccum makes me very happy.

The Shark Company shortened the suction path to the dust cup by as much as 80% and put all the vacuum's weight where it counts most—on the floor, not in your hand. I would love one of these as my vacuum is so heavy that it is hard to push.

A feature that I really like on the vacuum is the telescoping handle that adjuststo your comfort height. This makes for
easy storage, too.
