Shark Navigator Professional Lift-Away Vacuum with BacksaverHandle
Additional review after using for 1 month
I read a lot of the reviews before buying this vacuum and the one "con" that kept coming up was that the canister had to be emptied very often. I thought that too when I first started using it. Then, I thought about it; this vacuum was sucking up all the dirt and debris left behind by my old vacuum(s). So, I kept using it and emptying it often. Eventually, this vacuum got all of the left behind dirt and animal hair and I had to empty it less often. Now, I can do all of my vacuuming without emptying it until I'm done. I have wall-to-wall carpet in a 3-bedroom house.
Another thing I noticed was how my carpet shampooer works. Instead of trying to clean up, and suck up, all of the left behind dirt, which I have turned to mud by applying the water and shampoo, it now shampoos the carpet. What a difference!!
Shark vs Spike
I was a Dyson owner. Times are tough and did not want to spend another $500 on vac . I will say my dyson lasted longer than any other vac (7yrs)against Spike and Behr my 2 large dogs. The new Shark must bite hard as Spike has not challenged it in a bite the hose match yet. So far the suction is wonderful and I have NO complaints and it is quieter than my dyson. I have not used the floor surface attachment yet as I am in NV and this is our rainy season. Rain comes with clay mud and I have to wait till it is dry to try. The actual Vac has exceeded my expectations to date. It is lighter than my dyson and has great sucking!
best purchas ever
Omg..... should have gotten it a long time ago. I love it and the payment plan is fantastic. Thank you Qvc for being there.
I love this vacuum! My last one lasted 20 years so I had high expectations for the Shark. It is rugged and smooth and so easy to clean. Best vacuum I have ever had!
OMG!!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME??
WOW.....is about all I can say..I have a friend that owns a cleaning business and she knew that I was about to order the Dyson and she convinced me that this one was as good at about HALF the price of the Dyson...so I trusted her and I am thrilled that I did. It is amazing how this vacuum cleans and the stair tool was the best. Also...I was worried it might be too heavy but not at all...I have been raving about this machine to everyone. DON'T spend the money for the Dyson...this one is just as good....seriously. You cannot go wrong with this machine.
I did not get any onboard tools. I did not know they came with this product until I read the book, which was yesterday. I would love to give this product five stars as I love the vacuum but with no crevice tool or brushes for the sofa. I had to give this Shark one star. I would appreciate it if you would send the tools that were supposed to come with this fabulous vacuum,
I love this machine!! But I have to warn that if you have a lot of carpet, it is very narrow and will require many passes. I, on the other hand, have mostly hardwoods and minimal carpet and this vacuum is just what I needed. It picks ups easily on either surface and is super easy to use.
wish that i had order this sweeper sooner. great power a real back saver and all the extra tools . great --------
I just received this vacuum yesterday and I immediately tried it out. Simply put, I was amazed. I knew my old vacuum (which was a cheap one I bought almost 12 years ago when I moved into my first apartment) was losing its suction, which wasn't all that great to begin with. But I had no idea how much dust it was leaving behind. When I saw how much dust had been trapped in my carpet that the Shark picked up right away on the first pass, I was simultaneously amazed with the shark and disgusted that I had unknowingly been living with such filth! I also tried the Dust-Away attachment on my laminate floors and it did a wonderful job. It worked better and was easier to use than anything else I had tried on them.
Also, it was so much quieter than my clunky old vacuum. I really can't say enough about how much I love this vacuum. I never thought I could be this excited about a vacuum.
Bottom line: this is a very powerful vacuum, it seems to be very well constructed, and it does an amazing job.
Best Vacuum Ever!!!
Have a white American bull dog (weirdest fur of all dogs) and dark blue carpeting. This vacuum gets every piece of fur out of the carpet!
Best vacume I have ever owned
This vacume is easy to assemble, light weight, and easy to use. I have owned a rainbow vacume before and the ease of this vacume along with the amount of suction it provides blows the rainbow away. The price point is perfect as well. I love this vacume and highly recommend it.
What a little power house. I have two cats and often two dogs come to visit. You should see the hair this little thing pulled out of the carpet. Mind you I had just used my old vacuum cleaner. You can't miss on this item - plus I still have the steamer to try. What a neat item
