FYI, it's got a really bad review on Consumer Reports.

Sorry, I put MIR as in manufacturer instant rebate, but you're right that it is just called MR. Corrected in title. Thanks.

Can you provide link to any reference as I am unable to read the reviw on Consumer Reports. From what I have been able to read about this model, it is one of the best out there at the moment with stellar reviews from across the board. It would be good to know before I toss the Dyson. Thanks!

If you're seeing widespread praise for the vacuum cleaner and there's only one review saying they didn't like it as much, I think we can feel comfortable with this.

CR's Take
This lightweight cordless upright from Shark is one of the brand's poorest performers. Low weight sometimes means less power and this Shark earns the lowest possible score for suction and a Fair score for cleaning carpets-among the lowest for all uprights. Surveyed owners give Shark uprights high marks for reliability and satisfaction.
FWIW, they gave it a score of 52 out of 100.

As a point of reference, they gave the Shark ION F80 a score of 85.

CR knocked on the P50 due to poor suction and gave it a score of 52. Based on the same ratings, they gave the F80 a score of 85.

However, a real-world performance test based on the CR method shows the P50 as having slightly better suction than the F80.

So......what now? Trust CR or the test done on YouTube?

This was actually the video I saw. Everywhere else seems to have pretty good reviews so I am just going to give it a shot. A fluffy head for the Dyson is 80-100+ anyways.

Does anyone have a link to the rebate form? I bought the vacuum yesterday and now the Costco website is showing it as "Product Not Found".

It's an instant rebate/coupon, so you should've only had to pay $159.99 for it in the first place.

That usually means sold out online. They have it in stores B&M also.
