Shark Navigator Lift-Away Upright Vacuum
Preview Your Review
I bought this vacuum because I read the excellent reviews about picking up pet hair. This thing did NOT disappoint!!! I couldn't be happier with the suction on it. It was easy to assemble, it is light weight and works magic on my carpets. Thank you!!
Easy to Use! Gets all the dirt!
Very happy with how easy this vacuum is to use. It maneuvers well & picks up all the cat litter my cats throw out of the box. Canister is extremely easy to pull out, empty, & reinstall. Only downside is that it is rather light, which unfortunately means I knock it over now & then.
Light, powerful, great suction
After routinely replacing vacuums every 1-2 years for most of my adult life, I decided to invest in a Shark at the recommendation of several friends. I received it quickly, and for the last year, this vacuum has been amazing. It appears small, but it is easy to maneuver, works great for stairs and hard to reach areas. The detachable nozzle is a breeze with baseboards, dust bunnies on the ceilings, and all those other nooks and crannies. The bare floor feature is a nice reprieve from sweeping, and it does not kick up the dirt and fling it across the bare flooring. The filters are a breeze to remove and wash in the sink, and the canister is simple to dump, even my young children can do this. I can carry it upstairs and not break my back. The cord is a great length, and the hoses are virtually clog proof.
The only complaints I have: the unit is slightly top heavy, so it tips over every once in a while, especially on the steps. And, after 13 months of ownership, the lower unit that houses the roller became louder and angry sounding. This did not affect the performance in any way, but I called customer service and they are shipping me a new lower unit so that I can once again enjoy the quietness of this great machine. I love it, will never go back, and will continue to brag this vacuum up to anyone who asks. Thanks for a great product!
Commercial doesn't lie!
I used to have a Dyson, purchased from a competitor. Clutch broke before a year was up. Costs a TON of money. When I saw this on the commercial, infomercials, and on QVC, I decided to try it because of QVC's return policy, connections and wonderful Customer Service. Cannot believe it is a 1/3 of the D's price yet cleans better, more mobile, less weight, easy to clean, OY! This is my brand for life!!!!!
This vacuum cleaner is the best ever! First time I've had a vacuum that performed as well as this little worker bee. Am very pleased with the maneuverability and the power of this machine. Good job QVC and Shark!
Okay, so I HATE to clean. I got sick and tired of my husband cursing out the vacuum because the belt on the thing kept slipping. That vacuum was a different brand. I HATED how cumbersome it was. I HATED how it couldn't deal with long dog fur. It didn't even want to "eat" the scenty rug powder.
My husband and I finally had enough!
(Cue angelic music)
I then came across the other reviews for this WONDERFUL, light, fun (yes, I said, "fun"), not-so-noisy, pretty, delight! The amount of fur, dirt, and who knows what else this vacuum picked up was AMAZING!!!! I thought I was going to have to buy new rugs but not anymore! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this vacuum! There was so much it picked up that I think we may actually HAVE to clean the filter already. We had to empty out the container at least FOUR times but keep in mind vacuuming was a pain before this gem! The suction really is amazing. It works very well in the bare floor mode too!
If you need a new vacuum and don't buy this one you may regret it. Super-inexpensive AND a powerhouse? You can't go wrong with this!
Had it for 2.5yrs & still going!!
This is the BEST vacuum I've ever purchased! I've had the 'other', higher priced, vacuums but nothing compares to the stability of this Shark! I just wanted a vacuum to do the job & last. This is the one!! Animal hair & teenagers in the house. Vacuuming the stairs is a breeze. I'm going to purchase another!
Do not hesitate
So glad I bought this and didn't pay all that money for another brand! I have dogs and I have kids I needed something with great suction and I hit the nail on the head when I bought my shark!
Best Vacuum Ever
I have a Dyson at work and it is SOOO heavy and cumbersome. Plus it was three times the price. This Shark vacuum is a dream. The vacuum is lightweight with a long cord. The power is incredible and it's very easy to empty the container. I've been very, very pleased with the product. This was an investment for me and I have not been disappointed at all. Would highly recommend.
Love this vacuum
I have two , one for each floor and I wouldn't have any other. They are easy to clean and use.
Having brought a new puppy into the house 9 months ago (who now weighs 50 lbs), I Started shopping for a new vac three months ago given my almost new carpeting was starting to look pretty bad. I was resigned to pay the hundreds for a Dyson. However, after finding out that QVC Dyson buyer reviews were not 5-star across the board for the couple of top-the-line pet vac models, I began reading the complaint reviews more closely. I noticed a pattern of several reviewers talking about the great Shark Navigator vac for a fraction of the price--had never heard of the brand. Well, seeing that it's reviews were really high and the price at an amazing under $200, I bought one. The results are phenomenal--the amount of dog hair, dander, and dirt this vac picks up amazing. I now have my rug back looking new again. I love how light-weight it is and flexible at the base to easily get around furniture. An amazing product. It IS small so maybe people w/huge house wouldn't like it. But it's so light-weight I don't feel I'm putting out anymore effort to clean a room. I love this vac and would recommend it to anyone. Don't be fooled by your first five minutes using it when you feel it's too light-weight to do a good job. Keep vacuuming, the look at the dirt holder to see how much crud this vac has picked up. I'll never buy another brand.
Hoses Broke within 1 year.
I purchased this vacuum and the hoses broke in three different sections. I have tried to see if I can just order replacement hoses but Shark does not sell just the hose. I have come back to QVC to order another vacuum. I do not recommend this vacuum because it is a disposable vacuum. Guess I will have to spend more money and purchase a DYSON.
