The 8 Best Corded Vacuums - Spring 2022

The best corded stick vacuum we've tested is the Shark APEX UpLight. This relatively lightweight vacuum delivers superb performance on bare floors and does an excellent job cleaning pet hair and various other kinds of material on low pile carpet.

Amazing vacuum but has a few design flaws

This little beast does an amazing job of cleaning, but has a couple things that could be designed better. Setup is simple and straightforward - I’m blind and can’t read print, so I didn’t have the benefit of a manual. But one wasn’t needed, I was able to easily understand how the parts went together...

Great vacuum. Good value.

The suction and bagless collection are great. The vacuum head is a little narrower than I expected, but I was blown away at how I filled the canister vacuuming a room I'd just vacuumed with my Dyson.

Amazing Vacuum

I've never owned a shark or a expensive vacuum, so this vacuum was nothing like the ones I ever used before. First, putting it together was very easy. Took about 5 minutes tops.

Best Suction!

Really good suction!!! This is one of the best rated vacuums by Consumer Reports, so we took a chance at buying a modern design. It works great, and this Walmart version is the best price compared to the general model.

Will aggravate dust allergies!

Sadly, this vacuum didn't work for me. It has a massive design flaw: it blows air out into you face as you vacuum. If you have allergies, look elsewhere for a stick vacuum. Also, I was hoping to use both hands to maneuver it, but no, there's no space for your other hand to grab it to reposition it. ...
