My parents have 2 shark vacuum cleaners, one of them is over 2 years old and still works like the day we bought it, they are really the best.
It is lightweight, has great suction, and easy to maneuver.

WOW....I am not a person who is easy to please. But, I am thoroughly impressed with this vacuum. I was debating between this model and the Shark Lift Away Professional. I went with this NV42 model because it was $80 cheaper and seemed to have many of the same features (minus the lift away base unit.) I can say that my house has NEVER been CLEANER! I have 2 dogs and one sheds heavily year round. This vacuum not only sucked up all of the fur, but also managed to get all of the dirt and dust that was embedded in the fibers AND underneath my thick area rugs that I used to have to go back and clean separately. It works fantastic on carpets, rugs, stairs and my hardwood floors AND its self propelled so I don't even have to push it! I even use it to dust woodwork and window sills and I cleaned my entire sectional couch with it - that's how powerful it is! I must say it is a bit cumbersome on my stairs...but not nearly as bad as my old hoover was. If you are concerned with agility on stairs, I would recommend investing in the lift away model (cause you can just detach the motor unit and travel with it more easily.) I'm probably just going to buy the hose extender so I can use it to extend further up my stairs without dragging the whole thing behind me. Also, the filters are all washable and reusable (so no expensive replacements). I JUST TOTALLY LOVE THIS THING!

What's great about it: Great price, easy set up, good suction, not heavy or cumbersome, love the width of the head.
What's not so great: Not self-propelled, hose is not as stretchy as I thought, no on board storage for two of the attachments.

Really great vacuum, especially for the price. I go through vacuums fairly quickly so I've had quite a few different ones and I've paid up to as much as $500. This is my first Shark and my favorite vacuum to date.

Easy to switch from floor to carpet and floor mode is pretty quiet. The furniture/pet hair attachment works really well. The little beater brush is air driven so it's not too noisy and there is a little slide bar to give more or less suction. Which is nice. There are also two little strips of that red material like they use for fancy lint removal brushes. So it readily and quickly picks up pet hair. Good design. It also comes with a super long skinny nozzle, a short flat one and a soft duster type of attachment. Everything a person would need to keep house and car clean.

One of my pet peeves with these types of vacuums is the tipping over of the unit while trying to use the hose attachments. The slightest pull and the whole thing goes crashing to the ground behind me. ugh! I remedy this the same way I have with previous units which is to sort of wedge them into an area where they cannot tip. I've been told that the hoses stretch after a while but I have not experienced that in the past. Even after several years of using. The pics always make it look like the hose reaches really far! It really doesn't. However the material is more pliable than on any other model I've had so far.

My other issue with this unit is the term "self-propelled" vacuum.

Verified Purchase
In my younger days, I cleaned houses for a living. I loved my Eureka upright and no one could tell me anything different. Hoover - forget it! The 200 pound Kirby - not a chance! My love for Eureka knew no bounds. I could even repair it myself, changing bags, or belts, no worries!

Until one sad day, it broke and I couldn't fix it.

Time to go to Amazon and see what is out there.

First I went to Kohl's, Best Buy, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Costco, looking, taking notes, seeing prices, sizes, what options, what is good bad or ugly. I kind of liked the Shark. Came home, read all the reviews on Amazon (I am in love with Amazon and Prime, just saying.) Picked this one. Waited for it to arrive.

Put it together, not hard, didn't even need help from hubby, Norman. Shazam!

I vacuumed my house, up down, all over. Each room, I emptied the easy-to-remove basket of dirt and dog hair and took it to the trash. There is a satisfaction that is indescribable in dumping that puppy out. Like the hunter gather women of old, to feel accomplishment of "I DID IT!" I sucked that dirt from my carpet and wood floor in INCREDIBLE amounts and neatly disposed it in the trash can. Oh my.

Empty it for each room. That way you can proudly say, "Hunny - in JUST your office - I got THIS MUCH!!" it's amazing.

Then, for a thrill, after emptying the canister, for a fresh start - I put on the pet hair attachment and conquered the SOFA. Oh - My - goodness! JUST the sofa alone, with this amazing attachment, I sucked up enough cat hair to make two new cats!!! I can't tell you how truly satisfying that was. (Yes, gross to think I was sitting on that sofa every day!)

Light weight to carry. Use the magic wand to do stairs.

First, I'm a guy. A mechanical fix-it type guy. This vacuum does everything it claims it does. The suction is SO Powerful it will lift the rugs right off the floor if you don't use the 'suction reduction lever'. I really must say this thing is impressive, you will never find a more powerful vacuum. It is light, rolls/turns easily. The pet hair 'mini-tool',which also works on carpeted stairs/auto interiors sounds like a Jet Turbine, does not get bogged down on hi-pile carpet and picks up ANYTHING you need it too.I cannot say enough how utterly awesome this vacuum is, I actually enjoy the chore of cleaning!, it's almost fun! The dust bin is EASY to empty, you don't have to touch any dust/hair etc. Just dump and go. You can even easily detach the vacuum part from the carpet/floor brush and carry it around, up stairs, etc. to use the smaller Jet turbine mini tool. It has 2 crevice tools ,a short and long one, and a small brush attachment, which swivels around so you can clean the tops of doorways, ceiling fans tops of cabinets...whatever. Also,, It has no belts to burn out, if it gets caught on the edge of a carpet or anything the brush roller automatically shuts off and saves itself from burning out. Well engineered, I must say. My wife loves it too. light and easy to handle.If this vacuum has one thing I don't like, it's the fact that 2 of the tools don't store 'onboard'. The mini-brush and the 24" crevice tool will have to be stored elsewhere. However, there is a small 'onboard' crevice tool and the small un-powered brush. They store right on the back of the vacuum. A MINOR inconvenience, don't let this stop you from buying the best vacuum you'll ever own. Guarantee you Love it! This review is for the $149.00 Navigator Deluxe (Silver), The Navigator Pro (White) is $50.Read more ›
