Great suction, poor design for tool use

This vacuum cleans carpets incredibly well. In fact, makes them look new again. The canister is big enough to do 2-3 rooms before stopping for me. I vacuum every 3 days since I have a dog, cat and an asthmatic husband. It really has helped our allergies/asthma. The vacuum itself works very well. Even when the canister is full, I still have full suction. It is a little hard to push on carpets, if you have wrist problems this isn't for you. Assembly was a breeze, I didn't need the instructions. Now for the bad... the cord is very short. I have to switch outlets often. Also the hose is so short and is attached to an awkward plastic handle that makes its nearly impossible to use with the tools (see pic). When using the extension piece with the tools you have to completely unwind and remove the cord to use and the piece is heavy and awkward to use. I have several furniture pieces that I need to get under and the detachable hose is too short to use and the main vacuum head is too big to fit. Even when detaching the canister from the main unit I can't get everything without a workout. Also, the lift away unit falls constantly while using the tools (I need both hands to use the awkward extension attachment), probably due to the short hose. The "dust away attachment" is unnecessary because the vacuum itself picks up everything. The brush attachment itself is awesome. It picks up pet hair really well. The filters will need rinsing frequently, they get really dirty quick. Also, emptying the canister requires you to squeeze your hand into spaces where hair is stuck (see pic). This makes for a messy clean up that requires more vacuuming after you think you're finished vacuuming. I will be returning this to get the NV22L model with the longer hose.

Great vacuum esp in price range

For my particular needs, this little vacuum cleaner is the best one so far! Suction is great. Closed HEYA system is awesome! I did not give it a 5 star rating, because of two things: extension hose will not stretch out any distance at all because of the amount of suction coming through that hose and I'm hoping because it is so new (?) . Therefore if you pull on it & try to stretch it out further, the entire unit will fall over. Also, the manner in which the head of the vacuum is released (just placing your foot on top and basically forcing it to disengage) worries me for the long haul. We'll see though. Not sorry at all that I purchased this little guy. With 3000 Sq. ft. and 4 dogs that let me live here and clean for them :) this vac is a real nice helper! I long ago realized that there is no such thing as a perfect vacuum cleaner. There are too many variants, people's needs are different. however, I will say again, I am very glad that I purchased this particular unit.

GREAT Vacuum

I purchased this vacuum after my previous vacuum (a different brand) had broken. I was excited to purchase this particular Shark because it had a lift away feature, swivel head and had a high rating for pick up on hardwood floors AND carpet. When I received it, I couldn't wait to get it out of the box. It was VERY easy to put together. I did it myself in 10 minutes. It was also surprisingly light weight which I loved and very affordable. I can pick it up and move it around without hardly any effort, a plus because of a bad back. I babysit my 16 month old grandson each day and have hardwood floors with large area rugs. Cheerios, crackers and everything else thrown or dropped on the floor were cleaned up in a snap with the Shark Lift Away. The swivel head makes it easy to get under the edge of chairs and the couch. If I need to go under the couch I can just pull the hose out, attach the hose extension and vacuum head and go fully under anything. I would recommend this vacuum. You won't be sorry with this purchase.

Great Light weight vac

The wife wanted a lightweight vacuum and this was recommended as a best buy on consumer reports for a lightweight. Since the house is 2200 sq feet I was concerned about the smaller head size as compared to heavier vacs. no need, this one is a power house. Turn the brush head on for carpets and it does a great job. Turn the brush head off for the hardwood floor and tile and you are done vacuuming in minutes. Some complaints I read on Amazon about tipping over when using attachments; I have not had this problem. Overall, very pleased and highly recommend this vacuum - if you are looking for a lightweight easy to use vacuum.

Don't waste your money.

Beyond disappointed in this product. We've gone through 3 of these in just under 3 years. You'd be better off spending less money for a better product, or just full out by a Dyson. Our first Shark they had to replace in just under two months. The second Shark lasted a year, and the 3rd Shark only 14 months. While it worked fabulous at first, we've had everything go wrong from the filters to suction. We have a 4 bedroom house, 1 story, and not even all the rooms have carpets and we've still had issues. Our last shark only lasted SLIGHTLY over a year and when you call in - they offer a repair that take 2-3 weeks just to repair. Our household, having animals cannot go that long without a vacuum. The supervisor I spoke with was unfriendly and unyielding. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY on this product.

Best Vacuum I've Ever Owned!!

I have multiple sclerosis and I require a light weight vacuum and this is not only light but has incredible suction power! It was very easy to put together, only took about 5 minutes. I love the pet hair attachment because I have a chinchilla who has lots of very fine hair that my other vacuums never were able to pick up. I love the lift away feature, it makes getting into those hard to reach places a snap! I've read many reviews saying that the vacuum tips over because of the suction when the try to use the lift away feature but all you need to do is change the suction feature on the handle to less suction so it won't tip over. I love the fact that you can empty the canister from the top and the bottom which makes it much easier if the canister is very full. All in all I love this vacuum and I would recommend it to everyone!

Absolutely great product

This vacuum EXCEEDS expectations. Forget about the dyson. Go with the fact that I am horrible in putting things together. This product is literally a snap. Taking apart and putting together the dirt container is a piece of cake. The performance is outstanding and sucks up pet hair from 2 cats without any fur streaks. It swivels with ease in hard to reach corners. You can take apart the container so you can reach high places like corners with cob webs. I have had ZERO suction problems. As a suggestion, on the first go around vacuuming change it often. After the 2nd and 3rd time, depending how often your vacuum, you don't have as much which means it cleaned really well the first time around. It does a fantastic job on bare floors too like the kitchen and bathroom. This is also very light weight. A perfect A+ without spending serious money on a Dyson.

Best vacuum

I am a great-grandmother and have had many different vacuums and this is the best one I have ever had. With 3 dogs and 3 cats a lot of fur flies and this picks it all up. In fact I am afraid that if it got too close to one of them I would have to rename it baldy.


This vacuum was my must have for Christmas! Got it early and am so amazed how well it works! First Assembly...a snap! Literally! Everything snaps into place. Read the directions and your ready to go. Took me about 2 minutes to put together and start using. Suction..I had vacuumed the day before and could not believe how much it picked up. Pay attention to the green light if it turns red something is preventing suction. I had it happen once some baby doll hair got stuck in the roller. Came out no problem. It has 2 different settings...bare floor and brush roller on. Lift away...Easy! Very light, hose is a little stiff but it will probably loosen up after regular use. I used the pet roller picks up wonderfully! The canister empties easily. Read directions and everything is super easy.

I love this vacuum

I highly recommend this vacuum, I love it! Works great and gets around everywhere with ease, and the canister empties out very easy. I have no complaints with this vacuum. Nothing negative either! Makes my carpet look new every time I use it and cleans bare floors just as good!
