Rated 5 out of 5 by angelbabies3 Great product
I needed a new vacuum and really wanted a Dyson but didnt want to spend $500 to $600 plus on one... So when I did some comparison shopping I decided to try this vacuum.... I love it!!!! It does everything that the Dyson animal does... It picks up so much dirt from deep down in the carpet that u cant see normally... I vacuum a lot and I was surprised at how much it picked up on the first use... Make sure to dump between uses and to clean filters a little more often then the book says and it will help it last longer... It also has attachments for hard wood floors... I would definitely buy it again... It was a greaaaat investment!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fuzzy2011 So far a great vaccum cleaner.
The Shark has a lot of suction, handy accessories, and easy operation. My cleaning lady said it's one of the best she's ever used. I would highly recommend this product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Katrina007 Good lightweight vacuum
Pros: Has really good suction. Very easy to navigate. The canister lifts off easy.
Cons: The tip of the extention hose needs to be longer. It falls over when using the hose. .
Rated 5 out of 5 by simmeringbabe GREAT MACHINE!
My son told me about the Shark Navigator, and I wanted the Lift-Away because of going in areas the sweeper wouldn't go. I was very impressed by this machine! It has so much suction, it tries to go all by itself! It had so much dirt from my rug the first time I used it, I thought my carpet looked almost new! Try it guys, you can't go wrong!
Rated 5 out of 5 by pseudomamma Turns out it's everything we hoped
I decided to wait until after we had it for a few months before writing this review since it seems like those that didn't like it had failures within the first few weeks.
We have mostly hard floors. Finding something to work on both hard floors and our two rooms of carpet, without spending several hundred dollars, has been a challenge. We recently bought a large remnant for our living room and decided it was time to upgrade from our Dirt Devil and ShopVac.
My husband has a Dyson at his work and he hates it. He claims it never really picks up the dirt, so Dyson was out. I bought a Shark Steam Mop and love it, so we poured over the reviews and decided to try it.
We have 3 dogs, the biggest is a Yellow Lab and she is a shedder. This shark is amazing. We vacuumed our hall, went out and bought this a few hours later and vacuumed again. The amount of dirt it got up was astounding! We've had this for 3 months now and it still works great.
The width is narrow, but who cares. It's small profile allows me to go under furniture. The furniture attachment works great. It took me a while to adjust to the way the vacuum turned. So far, everything cleans up nice. When I vacuum my hard floor, I don't feel the little pieces of dirt hitting me in the ankles.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fedamp Great vacuum!
Best vacuum I've had to date and I've gone through a lot over the years looking for just the right one. I have a back injury and this is a super easy and lightweight full power vacuum that doesnt hurt to use like my old Bissel Lift-off. Turns on a dime so I don't have to move furniture as much and I love the handled hose for high and low jobs. Has great suction and a setting to manually decrease suction for smaller rugs and mats that would normally get sucked up. Suction is so strong it seems self propelled. Quiet and easy to carry. Absolutely love it!! Only complaint is that it didn't come with a wider hose attachment for doing stairs or furniture but it can be bought separately. Highly recommend this vacuum.

Researched this vacuum for 3 months. After it arrived I vacuumed two rooms that had been vacuumed in the previous 2 weeks and FILLED the container. The design is well thought out, lightweight, and very effective.
Rated 5 out of 5 by bradang LOVE IT!!!
I absolutely LOVE this vacuum.. I needed to replace my 10 year old vacuum and wanted something with alot of suction.. We are a busy family with 2 teenage boys, 2 dogs and a cat so I really needed something that would clean up after them. I did my research and decided to take my chances with this one and do not regret it at all! I am amazed every time I vacuum ANY room in my house. The bin is always FULL! It makes me realize just how much my old vacuum was really missing. It works great picking up all the pet hair and fine dirt from everyday traffic. I highly recommend this product! Who'd thought I'd ever be excited about vacuuming the house?!
Rated 5 out of 5 by paintingpenny i was so surprised how well this vacuum worked... i have never used any vacuum that picked up so well... it s easy to use , and i am vary happy i bought it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by jljensen I love this Vacuum, I bought the professional based on the hardwood attachment and it is wonderful, gets into all the corners wonderfully. I have an island with trim that has difficult corners even for a broom and this attachment works great. I also bought it because I wanted a Vacuum that detached for stairs and actually worked to clean the stairs. You can SEE the amount of dirt it picks up every time you use it it gets right into the corners and is easy to use. I wish it had one more extension wand to get cob webs but other than that it is a great great Vacuum. Honestly I see so much dirt every time, I wonder how that much dirt even gets in my house each week! It's amazing!
Rated 5 out of 5 by bv18324 fantastic vacuum!!
I have purchased many vacuums through the years, but this is by far my favorite. It is lightweight and easy to manuever, but best of all it is extremely powerful. I cannot believe how well it performs. I am ashamed to say that my carpet has never looked so good. My compliments to Shark on such a fabulous vacuum. If there were any improvements to be made to this product, it would be to make it a little wider, but that is the ONLY downfall. I LOVE my Shark Navigator.
Rated 4 out of 5 by lovetwilight2010 The only reason why I'm giving it four stars is because when I ordered it online I received it pretty quick, opened the box and the suction release thing would not turn at all... ended up taking it back to walmart and buying another one at a different walmart. overall very happy and works very well!!!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by katiedid71 Oh how I wanted to love this machine...
First off, the suction on this thing IS great. It's the hose that blows..... I use my vacuum for dusting as well as vacuuming. On my carpets and floors it did a great if not amazing job! I then use the hose and attachments for under the couches, the stairs, the nooks and crannies, the windowsills, etc. The hose on this is so short that the machine constantly falls over whether it's attached to the base or not. I had read another review that said this before I purchased, but I just assumed that person hadn't used it long enough and the hose was still new and stiff. Well I've given it 3 weeks of regular use - I even stretched the hose out across the couch while not in use - and it's still impossible. I kept thinking I could get used to the short hose but after multiple bursts of profanity, I realized that it was not worth the stress.
I'm genuinely disappointed because on floors it really is wonderful. Ah well, back to the store it goes.
Rated 2 out of 5 by ladyofmyhouse Disappointed
Vacuum was relatively light weight, did not have the suction power I was expecting. Even with the canister removed, the hose and attachment were too short for me to reach where I needed to, like under the china cabinet, sofa and chairs or corners of ceilings.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shepherdmom3 I have had my Shark Lift-Away Pro (NV355 Series) since Christmas and have waited till now to write my review so I can give an honest opinion. This is the absolute best vacuum I have ever owned, and I have owned a few! It is lightweight, easy to operate, and the suction is unbelievable! I have 3 German Shepherds that shed constantly, so vacuuming is an everyday occurrence. I find with my Shark Pro, I spend half the time it normally took me to vacuum the entire house and my back feels so much better at the end of the process. Also, the Dust-Away hard floor attachment is wonderful! With three sets of dirty paws in and out all day, I find I actually have to mop my floors less. I would highly recommend this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JTSL Great Vacuum
This Shark Vacuum is perfect my wife and I were going to purchase a Dyson I watched a commercial on this vacuum. I wasn’t satisfied so I went on you tube and watched what regular people had to say and watched the vacuum in action I was blown away. My wife has allergies and when I vacuum it bothers her and sometimes me, but for the first time I vacuumed and didn’t sneeze my head off and my wife didn’t have to leave the room. I highly recommend this vacuum it does everything it says and more because of the benefits you get from it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cyaintu Amazing!!
I spent alot of time researching this vacuum. I have always had the top of the line Bissell vacuum cleaner and have always been a Bissell fan, until now. Oh my goodness!! The assembly of the Shark was simple. As soon as I could I began to vacuum my house. The dirt that it picked up made me sick!! I continued to vacuum everything, couches & beds. Wow, I have never owned a vacuum like this in my life! It is light weight and easy to operate. I hope that it last as long as it says, because I'm in love!!
Rated 5 out of 5 Very pleased, moving into my first apartment so I purchased this vacuum. I've watched my mom suffer through many vacuums cause my dad likes to sometimes take the cheaper route. Haha, I like to buy right the first time. I did not have the funds for a Dyson so I went with the shark. Never used a Dyson, however after using the Navigator Liftaway I don't really care if I ever do. The vacuum works extremely well. I chose the Liftaway Professional due to the fact I didn't want a purple vacuum so I paid the extra 30 or so $$. But I'm sure the purple ones work just as well. The professional also came with a cool hardwood dusting attachment. If there is anything I can say that's maybe a flaw, the head of the vacuum is smaller then the body. This causes it to tip over easy. For some people who are too lazy to use the "Lift Away Action" this might be a problem for you. Overall this vacuum makes cleaning an ease, even for a 21 year old guy.
Rated 2 out of 5 by dollyb12 Misleading reviews
Sorry, but really? i had a hoover wind tunnel before, was excited to receive this vacum, tried to vacum the car with it, it's a toy, had to go over and over, changing accessories in the process, then gave up! without talking to my husband about it, he looked at it lying on the garage floor and asked "Is This the vacum you ordered?" he looked at it and I had to agree, it's not to match up to the hoover wind tunnel, which used to have sucking power to the extent of sucking the cell charger wire laying inches away! When I needed real cleaning to my kids rooms, i used the 10yr old hoover :(
Rated 5 out of 5 by yoyoma1986 Light weight, good animal hair pick up, good price
We have owned one of these vacs for a year, vacuum at least once a day and still LOVE it. We have 3 Lab-cross dogs and it easily picks up the dog hair - on all surfaces and fabrics. I wash the washable filters every month and the canister is emptied after every use. Having recently had shoulder surgery, it was easily maneuvered with the opposite hand and still swiveled easily.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decomaniac Does a fantastic job.!!!!!!!
Bought this vacuum, came home and to test it I vacuumed my area rug twice with my older vacuum, it picked up a lot and I thought it looked clean. I then went over it with the Shark and was amazed at the fine powdery dirt and animal fur it pulled up. I then put down Resolve moist power rug cleaner, waited for it to dry and vacuumed that up with my old vacuum, and went over that with the Shark, again, the amount it pulled up from the carpet was amazing. I had been told to purchase the Shark previously but I'm glad I waited as I love the lift away feature which makes it so easy to move room to room.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jaimet777 This vacuum sucked up an entire canister of dirt and dog hair after I had vacuumed with my old vacuum. I love the adjustable suction for rugs since we have quite a few. I haven't used it much on my hard floors but the little I have, I've been pleased. I almost bought a Dyson but I felt like it was worth trying the Shark after hearing it works just as well if not better. I'm glad I saved the money and went with Shark.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pierre000012 Great Vac
I hate knowing that I should write a long review giving every single detail...but I just do not have the time! This vac is the greatest! I have NO complaints. I chose between this and the new/latest model (The Navigator Rotator) and this was my final choice. I needed the feature that allows me to attach the microfiber cloth for my hard wood floors etc. I am glad I did as my mother has the new one and although it too is great...I like my extra little accessory. Anyway, don't hesitate in purchasing this unit!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Missrobinri Best Vacuum Ever!
This is the best vacuum I have ever used - incredible how easy it moves and how much dirty it picks up! Incredible!
Rated 5 out of 5 by eshoppery Nice Sweeper!
I was impressed with this sweeper. It really "sucks" but in a good way! Having a cat that sheds I was hoping that this sweeper could take up all the cat hair that collect on the carpet and throw rugs. I was happy to see it does a great job! The handy detachable canister is wonderful for the stairs! I am very happy with this sweeper!
Rated 5 out of 5 by achabele love it!
With recent back problems my current vacuum was too heavy. My mom bought this but a different model. I love how light it is and how easy it is to dump out the dirt. Has a lot better suction than my bissell. Really like the attachment for the stairs and floor.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Texasgal712 Best vacuum I have ever owned!
I love this vacuum! The first time I used my Shark, I could not believe how much dirt & dog hair came out of my carpet!
Pros: Easy to maneuver, great suction/pick up, lightweight (easy on the back), versatile, reasonable price.
Cons: A longer cord & extension attachment would be nice. Also, using the vacuum as a handheld is a bit awkward.
Despite the cons, which are minimal, I still give this product 5 stars!

HAS GREAT SUCTION. SO MUCH SUCTION THAT IT SUCKS UP THE SMALL KITCHEN RUGS. MAKING IT HARD TO VACUUM THEM. MY ONLY OTHER PROBLEM IS WITH THE PLASTIC TABS TO HOOK THE VACUUM BACK TO TOGETHER AFTER EMPTYING IT SEEM VERY FLIMSY AND NO WAY TO REPLACE THEM IF THEY BREAK. I HAVE TWO DOGS AND THEY SHED A LOT. I VACUUM EVERYDAY AND IT PICKS UP THE HAIR GREAT. TO EMPTY IT I OPEN THE BOTTOM DROP IT IN THE TRASH. IT SEEMS THAT THE HAIR GETS STUCK ON THE SIDE SOMETIMES. SO I FLIP THE CUP OVER AND EMPTY IT FROM THE TOP AS WELL THIS MAKES IT SO I DON'T HAVE TO REACH IN THERE TO EMPTY. I'VE HAD A DYSON AND THIS IS AS GOOD AS THE DYSON BUT MUCH CHEAPER. THE TURN RADIUS IS WONDERFUL!! I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!!! VERY HAPPY WITH IT!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by WifeOfAHunter Best Vacuum I've Ever Had!
I cannot say enough good things about this vacuum. I've owned mine for a little over 2 weeks now and I use it every day, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day (I have a messy 3 year old), and it is just amazing. I have a balance of wood and carpeted floors and I use this vacuum for my whole house. It works so great on my wood foors, but also picks up every little thing off of my carpets. The cord is also very, very long so I don't have to keep changing plug-ins as often as I used to. I had a Eureka before this one and it didn't pick up half of what this vacuum picks up. This vacuum is a little heavy, in my opinion, but the swivel makes it easy to maneuver around. I highly recommend this vacuum and this brand.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1MamaJ Love how light weight and easy to push and pull it is. It never looses suction and I was amazed at how deep it cleans I have 2 dogs who love to play outside and carry in dirt and sand the shark gets it all. I have a mix of tile, hardwood and carpet the bare floor cleaner even gets the grouted areas clean too and corners WOW! It is almost everything you need for floor care. Now if it just came with the Maid to do the work.... Was a great buy.
