Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stellaswatch This product has excellent suction
A Kirby owner for over twenty years, until one of the motors went out for using attachments. Purchased the Shark Navigator Lift Away and was pleasantly surprised at cleaning/suction capacity. I had cleaned my carpet the day before with my Kirby and when I got my Shark home the next day, I cleaned the same areas again with it. I was surprised how much dirt and dust that the Shark had picked up. I would highly recommend this vacuum. I also purchased another Shark Navigator two days later for my daughter and she loves her's as much as I do, because it is lightweight and really does a great job of cleaning.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by chrissy444 great vacuum
This is my first really nice vacuum, and I can't believe what I have been missing! I got the pet brush, and it works great with pet hair. I like how the canister detaches and becomes portable for stairs. I never lose suction even with pet hair in the canister. I use it on my wood floors and carpet. It swivels around furniture nicely. It did feel a little top heavy when I first started using it, but now that I am used to it, feels just fine. The weight seemed a little heavier to carry, but it has more features than my last vacuum. I feel the weight of the vacuum doesn't impact my ability to lift it.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by PrincePete1 i'm a guy. i hate housework...
but this vacuum kinda makes it fun. i know sounds strange, but it's light and manuvers very well. the suction is great, don't have to go back and forth like with other vacuums i've used. i haven't had the same experience as the reviewer who had to clean the filter constantly. the filter may appear dirty, it is picking up dirt afterall, but it doesn't apper to effect the suction any. it's great on hardwood floors. i was concerned about it effectiveness on carpet because there's no beater brush, but it seems to pick up well based on suction alone. first vacuum i've ever enjoyed using.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Dolly428 Awesome! Vacuum performs as advertised and more!
This was a replacement for my previous vac, which I've had for years. The Shark is slightly heavier, but it's performance is amazing! During the first time vacuuming, it was amazing how much dirt and dog hair was picked up...this was after I had used my old vac a couple of days before. Bucket after bucket of 'stuff' was vacuumed up!
The reason I gave 4 stars rather than 5 is the emptying of the cannister creates a small plume of dust. But it all goes right into the trash and is a minor issue compared to the cleaning satisfaction the Shark provides. Bought one for my son & daugherinlaw!
