Shark Navigator Professional Lift-Away Vacuum with BacksaverHandle
I decided to try this vac after getting tired of buying bottom of the line vacs from Walmart which lost suction a year later. The draw of five monthly payments made the decision for me. It arrived on time, the suction is great and there are lots of attachments which make it very easy to use. I'm only 5'1", and it is very light to carry up and down stairs. There is even a hardwood floor attachment which can be used on tile as well. The only improvement I would make is a light to make sure you don't run over things on dark carpet.
This is the second Sharp we have purchased. We purchase one 7 years ago and have used it constantly until some of the parts broke off from the main vacuum and some of the attachments did not work properly. So we purchased the Navigator and it works just as well as the older one and has the advantage of better and more advanced attachments. I would recommend this product to anyone as a great vacuum for a very good price!!!!!
Rotator is better than this Navigator
I purchased the Shark Rotator back in December of 2013, I absoulutly love it! It's amazing!!! When my power head stopped working Shark replaced it however the part was on back order and it was going to be mid April till I would get my part, so I decided to purchase another Shark. Why not have 2!? One for upstairs one for downstairs. I purchased the navigator in February of 2015, I was so excited as I love my current shark why wouldn't I love this one? Well, I don't. I'm sending it back. The suction power on this model isn't nearly as good as on my original purchase and talk about static, so much static that the dog hair is attracted to the power head and just accumulates on top of it. I'm very disappointed however I'm going to purchase another Shark Rotator so no worries.
Well worth it
I couldn't wait to get my new Shark vacuum as my old one was forced into retirement. The first time using it was great and disgusting, it was hard to believe there was so much dirt and animal fur around the house.
The Shark picked up everything left by the old vacuum.
The only downside was there were no instructions or product info included in the product package. It would be nice to have the info handy rather than looking online at the QVC website.
One pass through my living room with this vacuum and I was more than impressed! After buying two cheap vacuums in two years I decided to splurge on this and I am so glad I did. If you are on the fence about this one DON'T BE!! Stop reviewing and get this asap. It will change your life. My daughter and I were literally trying to use it at the same time. Who ever heard of two people actually fighting over the vacuum? LOL! GET THIS NOW!!
Its an an amazing machine. We've used it a few times and you wouldn't believe what comes out of the carpet! the pet hair is insane! I would buy another just incase they ever stop making it. I love this shark navigator!!'
I was very skeptical when purchasing a new vac because none of mine last more than 6 months..or seem to work that well. Not onlt did this vacuum do exactly what it said it would but it came a day early! Whoop whoop!!
SOOOO Glad I Ordered
This was one of the best thing I've ever done!! The Shark Navigator is EVERYTHING they said it was!!! My 11 year old son loves it too since vacuuming is one of his chores lol
I was looking for a unit with a lot of suction, and I found it! Very easy to assemble and use. Not the most elegant or ergonomic system for using the onboard hand tools, but definitely functional.
Just The Best Vacuum Ever
This is the type of Vacuum Cleaner that I have been looking for . I just Love ,Love, Love it., especially the small size. I just love everything about it. It does a very good job cleaning and I especially like the Lift-Away part for cleaning the stairs. It is powerful and the suction adjustment is very nice.
I love this vacuum. My only issue is this....when you use detach the handle to vacuum baseboards etc. if you touch the part it lifts off from it shocks me. also it would have been nice to have a wider vacuum area.
Best Vacuum Ever
After all the vacuums I have had over 35 years, This is the best, lightest, and cheapest vacuum I have ever owned.
