Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xgnslngr Does what It Says It Does
I was a little skeptical about the vac when I saw the infomercial but it really has lived up to it’s claims. Great suction, easily maneuvered and versatile. I have two Rottweiler’s, a Bull terrier and a cat and it was a constant battle to get all the pet hair up. This vac does the job. Its well worth the price and easy to use. I wish it had wider rollers, a 12 amp motor and a bigger waste container. It also needs a place to hold the attachments. I added a black mesh drawstring bag for the attachments. I would be willing to pay the additional costs for a little bigger more powerful machine. But this does the job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JAYARR Best Vacuum I've Ever Used
Just moved into our first home. Prior owners own two full-sized dogs (one Golden Retriever, don't know the other breed). After I paid a guy to come shampoo all the carpets, there was still a lot of dog hair and other stuff in the corners of every room and on the stairs, as well as throughout the entire carpet.
Got online, read tons of reviews on many websites, and bought this vacuum yesterday from Home Depot. Just got done using it throughout the house and I'm so glad I got this vacuum.
This product shows great results, and in very little effort and time. I've had a couple other vacuums, and am quite pleased with the overall performance of this one.
-Gets good range in 'hard to reach places'
-Easy to use
-Fairly compact size
-Quality of job done
-Noise not super loud
-HEPA filter and seals makes airborne dust and 'blowout' from the vacuum non-existent (my last vacuum blew dust all over the place)
-Overall value compared to more expensive products
-Torque of collapsible vacuum hosing is a bit strong, making setting down the compartment unit after detaching from the rolling base a bit cumbersome. Would be nice if the material of the hose had more 'give' and less torque to allow for more freedom of distance between the compartment unit and the end of the nozzle. This led to the compartment unit tending to fall over when left free-standing and only going about three feet away.
-This vacuum, like many others, has hooks for manually wrapping the power cord. It would have been handy if they'd included in the design an automatic power cord retraction wheel, as I've seen on others. This is not by any means a deal breaker. For myself, it would have made an already exceptional product even better.
-Overall, great product for a great price! Gets the job done well and quickly, and the lightweight makes long and complex jobs much easier. The ability to go from carpets to hard floors is quite nice, and the range of the handle with the long attachments is impressive. I can reach the ceiling while sitting on the couch (spiders, beware!)
Go get this vacuum! The quality and cost are great. I am certainly glad I bought it and definitely recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJisggma The very best vacuum I have ever bought in my 68 years.
A few months before I had bought another vacuum. I wasn't happy with that vacuum after spending alot of money. I have an indoor dog, and had to buy something hopefully better. I purchased the Shark, and I had no problem putting it together, and used the other vacuum for my own testing. The shark picked up so much missed hair on floor, I called my daughter and told her I wanted to sell this vacuum and become wealthy. I love so much about the Shark; lightweight, swivels, great suction, and easy to empty. I have never been so excited to vacuum my floors. Love it. I may give as upcoming presents for birthdays.

This vacuum is so easy to put together and use! I couldn't believe it! It beats my dyscon dc14 by 100%! If I could give this vacuum 10000 stars I would! I love it! I vacuumed my whole house 2 days ago with my dyson and it died on me. So I ordered the shark because it had 5 stars. I was thinking about getting a newer dyson but thought hmmmm 179 or 500...so I picked the shark! I vacuumed my whole house and picked up so much dirt it was insane! My dyson wasnt doing half the job that this little shark does! PLEASE GET THIS VACUUM IF YOU HAVE PETS OR ALLERGIES! ITS AMAZING!

This is the first time I've ever felt the need to write a product review. I have three large dogs and the pet hair has been a constant battle. With hardwood in most of my house, I'd use both dust mop and broom (time consuming and inefficient) on the floors prior to wrestling with the heavy upright for my area rugs. Not so anymore! I am so impressed with the powerful suction on this vacuum and how lightweight it is. I'm now winning the battle of the fur, dust, dirt, etc. and find myself silently humming the Jaws soundtrack as I vacuum it all up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MMDL The best Vac. we have used
This is our fourth vacuum in eight years,(this includes the central vac.). The central vac. 30 foot hose is a nuisance.The first HEPA filter vac.now stays in the basement,
Heavy, loud & a major job to clean. Our third vac.(not a HEPA), is up stairs; It started leaking fine dust where the bag attaches, so we now have the Shark Navigator. We had fun testing all four vac's and the winner was Shark. The only negative is some times the dog and cat fur dose not fall out on it's own when dumping and stays stubbornly in the receptacle. We have used the Shark for three months and we like it a lot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cp517 Awesome suction
This vacuum has amazing suction. It makes going from hardwoods to carpet a breeze. The only downside is I have to wash the filter after every use. If you don't, you lose the suction.
