Pet hair beware!

This vacuum, so far, has been worth every penny. I have two cats and two dogs. I’ve never had a vacuum cleaner last more than a year with their pet hair. The hair is no match for this vacuum. It’s so easy to use and versatile. The handle is y’all which is great bc bending over is a pain while cleaning. My only complaint (and that’s because I’m actually searching to find one) is it’s dang heavy... but not so heavy you can’t use it... but it’s heavy. 4.5 stars here!

You just think your carpet is clean!

From NV501. If you will tolerate me while I digress to make a point, you will understand what I have to say. For years, I have prided myself on having a clean house and thought it was. It is not that I am a clean freak but we’ve worked very hard to have what we have and I wanted to keep the carpet and tile at its best. Then, my husband began coughing to the point he had to have a heart stress test. Everything was negative but the coughing continued. There is no cigarette smoke in our house. So, every other day, to alleviate his incessant coughing, I would dust and vacuum with my upright, well known brand (begins with a K) containing a bag that took two mules and a horse to attach it tightly. Even after I vacuumed, I would have to dust the furniture again and wonder how on earth the dust returned so quickly. Sometimes the bag would stay on the vacuum and other times; all the dust would go inside the bag container. To get rid of the accumulated dust, I would haul the heavy thing outside and blow everything from its nooks and crannies. After several repairs to a wheel that flew down the hallway and cutting my fingers on the bag area, I banned the vacuum cleaner to my garage. That is when I bought my Shark Rotator Lift Away Bagless Upright Vacuum, model NV501. It arrived earlier than its intended arrival time from a Wal-Mart Distributor. A week before it arrived, I had moved all the furniture in my house, cleaned all the curtains and drapery and vacuumed with my old vacuum cleaner. The house looked clean. Anxious to try the Shark to see if it lived up to its hype, I went to the bedroom and began vacuuming … this is one room! When I saw the miniscule particles of dust (so tiny it looked like someone poured a whole container of baby powder on my carpet) and sloughed off body skin (we all do that) I was mortified. What else was in my carpet? Dust mites … probably so but not for long! The next day, once again I moved the furniture and did a deep clean on the floors and upholstery. I was aghast. The amount of dirt and dust collected by the Shark NV501 made me sick to my stomach. I couldn’t believe all these years my carpeted bedrooms and living room floors contained this much filthy dirt. Believe this or not but I continue to get atomic sized particles from my carpet. However, each time I’ve vacuumed since I purchased the Shark, the amount is getting smaller and smaller. I am winning the battle and there is no more coughing. If you are wondering about the Shark NV501, I can attest it does what it is supposed to do. The head swivels, doesn’t lose suction, is easy to maneuver, lightweight, will vacuum deep pile carpet and vinyl, hardwood or tile with a push of a button and the attachments are easy to change. The only thing that I might not like is how you push a tiny area with your foot to engage the handle downward but it is a moot subject. Very little dust is on my furniture and the house smells clean. Am I pushing this Shark NV501 … yes, I am and I am not affiliated with any one in the company, have stock in the company or asked to do this review. I am just a very pleased, “color me a happy camper doing the Snoopy Dance” consumer with this product.
My new Shark NV501. LOVE IT!

Shark Professional Vacuum

This is the BEST vacuum I have ever had. Light and easy to move around. After I had cleaned the carpet with the old vacuum, thinking it was clean, this one filled the tank with dirt and dog hair! I am so impressed. I tell everyone!

So much better than my Dyson!

I could not be happier with this vacuum! It is a bit heavier than my Dyson but well worth it and has several attachments. The photo says it all.....I went back over a section of my carpet with the Shark AFTER I used my Dyson and this was the result after one use (the Shark was brand new so there was no prior residue in the canister). I have one medium-size dog and one child. I am a good housekeeper so the results are even more shocking.

Buy It!!!

I love everything about this vacuum.


This vacuum does what no other vacuum does. It has wonderful power and it cleans the carpet more after having it professional cleaned. Thank you Wal Mart. And thank you Shark !

Love this Shark!

So powerful, convenient and easy! We absolutely love it!

Best decision I've made

I LOVE this vacuum. After months of research and watching the info commercial a handful of times I decided to buy it. I originally wanted a dyson, but decided to give the shark a try. I couldn't be happier. My in laws have a dyson ball and wished they would have spent half the money on this Shark. The suction is so powerful, unlike any other vacuum I've had. All the attachments make cleaning my stairs, couch, and blinds easy. It does my tile floors, carpet, and rug so easy I don't have to pull my broom out 6 times a day now (I have a very messy 4 year old). It's easy to push around, easy to move, and it's like 3 vacuums in one. The only downfall is the un-retractable cord. All my cheap vacuums had one, but I guess that's a small price to pay for a great vacuum. This one makes me excited to clean again! My carpets are only a year old and already have high traffic areas matted down, this vacuum makes my carpets look like they were just installed. I cannot say enough good things about it!

Does the job!

This puppy.... We bought this vacuum over a year ago, normal moving expenses. We chose this one because we had a husky and keeping up with the hair is almost impossible.... We had no idea what we were in for..... As time passed, we pulled it out for the big projects, like when the dog was blowing her coat (look it up, it's a mess) what we didn't know was that this thing was hungry.... and dog hair just wasn't cutting it. The toddler threw popcorn everywhere, no big deal. What I didn't know was there was a secret stash of sandwich crusts and bites of chicken nuggets under the edge of the couch. How could I know? I discovered too late as this giant roaring monster of a vacuum sucked them all up, pulverizing them into crumbs. Entire crusts, half nuggets, gone in an instant. I wrapped it up, but haven't been able to put it away... It's staring at me... hungry for more. All in all a great vacuum, definitely recommend.

A cleaning machine!!

OK. I rarely review products, however, in the case of the Shark Rotator vacuum, I gladly make the exception. Gentleman, have you ever bought yourself the "end all, be all" tool that does exactly what you wished for, saved you time and gave you that sense of satisfaction for a job well done? Ladies (and gents) to not hesitate to purchase this valuable tool. With two shedding Labs. one Jack Russell, and four cats the fur abounds and the dirt gets tracked in. Also, there is a substantial amount of dust from living in a semirural area. When I got going with the Shark, there was no stopping me. Wood floors, throw rugs, carpeting, drapes, window sills, upholstery and under those nasty leather sofa cushions. Not to mention, bookcases, under the beds and into places I would have never thought of cleaning until Shark mania took over. Yes, I like a clean home but as has been said in honesty by another reviewer, you only "think" your home is clean. Definitely, I am pleased with my end all, be all Shark vac!
