Â by felleram79 This is the "suckiest" vacuum ever..in a GOOD way!
I LOVE this vacuum! I have a year old Bissell that I have never liked since I got it...it just didn't suck or pick any thing up. I'd vacuum and there would still be crumbs or a piece of string on the floor...it drove me nuts! I had had enough and spent hours reading reviews...I wanted the "suckiest" vacuum I could find without breaking the bank! Well folks, this is it! This vacuum "sucks" so much, it even has a control on it to turn down the suction if necessary!! So, I put my vacuum to the test...twice. I vacuumed with my useless vacuum and then this new one when I got it...and you should see the dust and dirt it picked up! No wonder my house has been so dusty! Yuck...I should have taken pictures!
I brought my vacuum to my friends house...she has a fancy Hoover. She literally vacuumed minutes before I came over and I pulled out my Shark, vacuumed her living room...this time I did take pictures...these are pics of the additional dirt and dust that her fancy vacuum missed (my results with my Bissell were similar)! I seriously LOVE this vacuum!!!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by cfwoods So glad I bought it.
I purchased the Shark Navigator & have had it for going on 2 weeks now. There is absolutely nothing that I can say bad about this vacuum cleaner. There was one part that I seem to be missing, but it has nothing to do with the performance of the item. I have 6 fur babies ( 4 dogs/2 cats) in my home, so pet hair & messes are always an issue. However, the Shark Navigator takes care of them quickly & with such ease. Over the years, I've had many different kinds & types of vacuums, but this is by far the best machine I've ever owned. I would highly recommend this vacuum to anyone - especially if you have pets. I love my Shark!!! :~)
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Tamiwammi This vacuume is great
I had a Shark Rocket and loved it but it fell over the handle broke off. So thought I would try this prof style and it picks up wonderful. I love that it has attachment to get under the the refrigerator and washer drier. It was a great buy.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by MorganinIowa A bit busy, could be simpler and still be good
I've had this vacuum about a month, it replaced my older Shark which still worked fine was just getting old. If anything this new version is a bit "busy" in my opinion with too many detachable parts. Some may like that versatility but there are lots of hooks and latches to navigate when you are new to this machine. The pet-hair brush with this model is smaller than my older one and takes longer to get the job done. It also comes with a belt which looks breakable so I prefer the older simpler pet brush to this new one.
My only other complaint is the handle, when detached, is somewhat bulky and awkward. It's a big circle of hard plastic handle where the old one was just a tube you held in your hand.
Besides that I like that this new model pivots, so you get the floor done faster and the new extra-long floor attachment really is pretty great. I stretched it under my couch about 4 1/2 - 5 feet all the way to the wall. Think it would do well on ceilings too.
I'd still recommend a Shark (any Shark!) to people looking for a mid-priced vacuum. It's just as good as more expensive models. I just wish it were a little bit simpler to be honest!
