Euro-Pro SV75 Shark Cordless Hand Vac Review

Think Twice

While users report that the Euro-Pro SV75 Shark Cordless Hand Vac is easy to use, its suction power seems to be lacking and the battery is a problem. According to reviews, the vacuum runs for only a few minutes at a time and the battery soon stops holding a charge. The attachments are also not up to par; this machine comes with only a crevice tool.

The main problem with the Euro-Pro SV75 Shark Cordless Hand Vac (starting at $40, Amazon) seems to be the battery. Some users posting Shark hand vac reviews on Amazon say the battery doesn't hold a charge long enough to get through even the first cleaning, or works only a few times before it dies for good. On top of that, users complain about poor customer service. Consumers posting reviews at Best Buy say the same thing: that the battery either loses a charge halfway through a cleaning job or stops holding a charge entirely, rendering the whole machine useless. In a review at Walmart, a user suggests the vacuum itself doesn't last long either: The brush started getting stuck after eight months of sporadic use, leaving the vacuum unable to pick anything up. The Euro-Pro SV75 Shark Cordless Hand Vac doesn't offer much in the way of features. It comes with only a crevice tool and uses a standard filter. This vacuum weighs in at 4.8 pounds and carries a one-year warranty (which may come in handy from the sound of it).

Shark hand vac reviews indicate that neither the battery nor the vacuum itself has a long lifespan and customer service leaves something to be desired. With so many good, cheap handheld vacuums out there, you're likely better off spending your money elsewhere.
