The Shark Genius Steam Mop is corded, features a 22-foot cord. It uses double sided mop pad which is washable and reusable. It uses water only. And it is recommended to use distilled water to make sure it has a long life.
According to Shark, this hard floor steamer is designed for indoor use only, it can be used to clean hard floor surfaces that will withstand high heat. Some sealed floors it can handle are Laminate, Hardwood, Marble, Tile, and Stone surfaces.
But you should not use it to clean unsealed wood or unglazed ceramic floors.
The heat and steam action may remove the sheen on surfaces treated with wax and some no-wax surfaces, so you also should be careful to clean them with the steam mop.
It weighs 5.7 lbs. (2.6 kg), and its dimensions are 47.1 in (120 cm) x 13.8 in (35 cm) x 7 in (17.8 cm), carry 1 year limited warranty.

Pros
Easy to put together.
Easy to attach and release the pad.
The pad is thick enough to clean some baseboards, can be flipped over, and does not scratch floors.
Swivel head works well, easy to maneuver.
The Steam Blaster is a plus, allows you to spray steam towards stubborn messes.
Use only water, so no chemical residues left behind.
It heats up fast.

Cons
It does not stand on its own.
The water tank is on the small side, capacity is 350 ml (11.8 oz.). And the tank is not removable. It would be better if you could remove it to fill in and dump water, especially when you want to empty it.
Some users reported that it requires a bit of strength to push, not for people who have shoulder or back issues.
No On/Off control button.

Overall, it worth a try if you are looking for a steam cleaner for sealed tile, hardwood, marble, laminate, and stone floor cleaning.

P.S.
Do not forget to vacuum or sweep before mopping.
