Shark Navigator Lift-Away Upright Vacuum
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.
Shark Vacuum...The best ever...beats Dyson!! :-)
This is the BEST vacuum I have ever purchased and believe me, I have purchased about 6 in the last couple of years. Either they break, clog, or lose their suction. We have 1 dog and a few too many cats, so I vacuum daily. I have told friends about this vacuum and they have gone out and purchased one too. Even my hubby, who is the Postmaster at our local post office, has purchased one for their building. I give Shark 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and 1 big smile for this wonderful vacuum. Thank you!!
The Best Vacuum Cleaner Ever
This is no hype. The Shark is simply the best vacuum cleaner ever. I did the vacuum after the old vacuum cleaner test and it got up more dirt. I have a Siberian Husky who sheds a lot and it picks up all her hair. It is lightweight and easy to use. Emptying the canister is a breeze and no bags to purchase. Love it and will never buy any other brand - goodbye Hoover!
Love The Shark
I have had this vacuum for almost two years now and I love it. The day I received it I had already vacuumed my carpets but when I got it and put it together I decided to try it right away. I was surprised how much was picked up considering I had just vacuumed my carpets just few hours before. I love all the features of this vacuum and I will now only stick with Shark. The only thing I wish is that it came with the Back Saver attachment. You will be amazed by this lightweight, powerful vacuum cleaner. Thanks Shark
Having bought about 5 vacuums in the last 3 years, and all of them end up being a disappointment (even an expensive one from the Q), I decided on the Shark b/c of the reviews. I couldn't afford a Dyson, and the reviews on that were really iffy; so thanx, everybody for sending THEM in! Well, I have been cleaning my house, REALLY CLEANING IT, since the vacuum arrived this afternoon. I am delighted! I hope it continues to work, but according to the reviews, it is a good product. Happy for the Easy Pay. It was easy to put together (no screwdrivers necessary, even!), and easy to use. Great item. Thnx!
Absolutely blew me away at how great the machine is. Never knew a vacuum could be this great. So easy to use, picks up the pet dander and dirt from deep down in the carpet. Being so lightweight is so helpful when you have back problems. Have been praising this machine to all my friends. If I could give it ten stars, I would.
Great Price for Performance
Shark is comparable to Dyson at less than half cost. Side by side, my old Dyson still picks up after the Shark, but there's very little left behind. If price is no concern, you may want to spend extra for the big name, but for me, the difference in performance is so little, I'll spend my $ elsewhere. I have also used the Shark Rotator 3in1 (the latest model). The main diff. between the 2 Shark models is the canister conversion caddy with the other unit. I didn't want something else to store and am physically able to carry the lift-away unit, so this Shark was fine for me. Having said that, the exhaust from the vacuum gets hot, especially when carrying. But having the ability to "lift-away" is a huge plus for me. I have carpeted stairs and this vacuum is a must-have for that feature alone. All the filters can be washed, dried and re-used. Picks up everything well, including human and pet hair. Suction and roller head adjust for bare floors and area rugs. The small cleaning path may add a few mins to cleaning time, but overall it's a thumbs up.
I recently got my new vac and I must say it is amazing! It is quiet, relatively lightweight, and powerful. It is very versatile and does a really good job with everything. The Turbo Brush does wonders on furniture and easily removes pet hair. Emptying the bin is quick and easy, and the whole vacuum design just makes sense.
Like many other reviewers, I can only say I'm shocked at how much dirt my old vacuum left in my carpets. Maybe it was because I used to buy cheap Big-Mart vacuums, but now I know what a real vacuum is capable of!
If you are like I was and leery of Shark because of all the late night infomercials, rest assured this is a high quality vacuum and worth every penny. Of course the easy pay options from QVC make owning it a breeze!
Light and powerful
This vacuum came to the house so quickly. yeah. I always believe you shouldn't have to sacrifice quality for price. I needed lightweight because of physical restrictions, but I didn't want to spend my money and have my house half cleaned. I didn't have to compromise. Pulled it right out of the box, so easy to assemble. The suction is great. I did just get it, so I am truly hoping that although it is human hair that seems to be around the house alot, that it doesn't soon stop my brush on the vacuum frequently and make it frusterating for me. After my first time vacuuming I filled several cannisters. So happy that is in the trash now and not in my carpet. The other reviews I read mentioned the attachments possible falling, so I chose to keep them off until I need them. Really nice vacuum.
Love this vacuum!
This is my second Shark Navigator - I can keep one at each end of the house now. Light weight, lots of suction, easy to empty - no bags to mess with. I have tile, wood, lanoleum and carpet...I use the Shark on all of these...no adjustments needed to go from one type of floor to the other. My German Shepherd is a 'house' dog - good bye dog hair!! Love the Shark.
