I have animals in the house. I have tile floors and hard woods. Carpet in 2 bedrooms.. I orginally purchased to use in the kitchen and living room.. I have found that the suction is great on carpets too. So convenient to grab and go.. no struggle with electric cords. The battery life is great too . I can use all over with single charge .. 1800 Sq foot.. great suction!!! Works better than my old big vacuum! !
I used this when I lived with my family while in school. They didn't have pets but had two messing little girls.
I am about to start my own family. Being 38 weeks pregnant was making it hard to move around but this has made cleaning easy!!
My carpets are super fresh.
Two kitties could not compete with this vaccum. It cleans so deep!
I highly recommend it!
Pets or no pets.
I love this vaccum cleaner. I have three large dogs, all with long hair. I've had the Shark for a little over a month now, and it is dealing with the hair just fine. I like the way it easily transitions from carpet to bare floors. If I could change one thing, it would be the way the cord comes from the device; it's a little awkward, and I have to remember to hold the cord or I am quickly tangled.
It is easy to empty, and the cord is plenty long enough. This is a light vacuum, which is easy to maneuver.
I've been using it for a few weeks and it works great. Picks up the dog hair and seems stronger than my last few vacuums. It's not as light as others, but it's heavy duty and works great so I don't mind.
My previous vacuum was needing some repair and just seemed too bulky for me now. A friend had gotten a Shark and commented on how great it was. Looked up some reviews which were all positive. I am very pleased with this vacuum because it is sleek and easy to use whether the upright or the canister feature. The bagless complete seal dust cup is easy to empty. I also like the floor nozzle that works on all surfaces without needing adjustment since I have hardwood floors, area carpet, and carpet runners. With 2 dogs and 3 cats there is a lot of fur to be vacuumed up and the power brush does a great job cleaning their beds.
I love this vacuum; it works great, however, it dies after only about 10 minutes of use (with a full charge!). I would love for it to have the ability to be used while plugged in so that the charge would last long enough for me to vacuum fully before it dies.
This vacuum is great for small rooms. So I have to use the blocker strips to monitor how far it travels away from the docking station. This vacuum will pick up a lot but you can’t be in a hurry and you must watch out for the bottom of chairs a standing lamps, as well as cords so it does get caught up. I love my robot!
I bought this particular vacuum because it got excellent reviews on Consumer Reports. I definitely agree. It transitions nicely from my hardwood floors to carpet and the suction is excellent. I have two dogs and I haven't had a clog, loss of suction, or issue with the rotating brush. The dust bin is easy to empty (press a button and empties from bottom). It's also small enough to get under the furniture and anything around 4-5 inches high. It comes with all the tools I need (slim suction tube, small rotating carpet brush, the slim-line vacuum head thingy, and a couple of other tools that are pretty handy) and the cord is a good length. My only negatives (and barely, at that) are that dust bunnies sometimes get stuck around the sides of the dust bin and I have to push them out with my hand, and it's slightly annoying that it won't stand upright on it's own, except for when it's properly stored. Overall, this was a great value, I highly recommend it, and I will definitely buy a Shark model again.
the product came very quickly. I used it as soon as I got it. I love this vacuum it is the best vacuum that I have ever purchased. I am very happy and pleased with this and I would highly recommend this vacuum.
My old Miele of 25 years finally gave out. Purchased a dyson and was very excited to get it. Hated it. Overstock was fantastic in handling my return. Ordered this Shark lift-away and love it. I love that you can adjust the suction. I love that you can turn it on without having the brush come on (unless you want it to). I have hardwood floors and orientals. Some are thick and I want to use the brush but some are thinner and I don't. I hope it lasts half as long as my Miele. Very satisfied. I'm thinking about purchasing a Shark Rocket for upstairs.
I am so pleased with my purchase of the Shark NV601 Rotator Lift-Away Speed Upright Vacuum. I went through great lengths researching vacuums due to the fact I am petite in stature and respiratory concerns. I am amazed at the suction and the manageability. It was just what I needed, I look forward to years of use. . Merry Christmas to me.
I am 100% satisfied with this vacuum. I used to own a Dyson Ball Animal--and this Shark is even better than the Dyson, and the price is better too. I have a cat and a boyfriend with allergies, since I got this vacuum, he says his allergies are better. I used the pet-hair hand-tool thing on the afghan on the couch and it pulled out sooo much hair and lint! The pet-hair hand-tool is awesome because it has a rotating brush head that really picks up cat hair--and dog hair too--I suppose. The suction is unbelievable. I started freaking out about how much dirt was coming out of my carpets and furniture and vacuumed my whole house. I like that the vacuum traps allergens with several filters--that are washable and reusable! And there is the "on-off" switch, you can turn that switch to a 'bare floor' setting--so that the brush head on the vacuum doesn't spin---that avoids dust, dirt and cat-litter getting scattered everywhere--it's just the suction going on. When you go back on the carpet, move the switch so the roller brush starts moving again. I have noticed my whole house is less dusty.
From someone else's post I discovered that you have to take the whole dirt canister off--which is really easy to do---and dump it outside, in order to fully remove the allergens from your house. If you open the dirt canister and dump it in your garbage can inside your house, you just let them all escape back into the air--and those dust particles are very tiny--like a talc powder. I love this vacuum, it is the best one I've ever bought, I would wholly recommend it to anyone.
I do like this sweeper for smaller cleanups, which is what I bought it to do. It is lacking in power, but when I clean out the dust tray there is a surprising amount of pet hair, dust and ash from around the wood stove, kitty litter. Things I didn't want to use the regular vacuum for. I really like the fact that the handle will collapse, to make cleaning under things easier on the back. I wish it held a charge longer. I am hoping that with use, the battery will charge better. It is light weight, works on all of my surfaces, and is something I use frequently. I rated it good, but it isn't quite as good as the one I had prior.
My aunt purchased this vacuum for me as a Christmas gift. I recently had foot surgery and she bought this for my 2nd level so I wouldn’t have to lug a vacuum up and downstairs. This Shark put my Dyson to shame! I swore by my Dyson until I got to see in the Shark canister what was left behind. Disappointing really. I am from now on a Shark girl
Husband-approved! We love our Sharks we have them in our home for years and we are amazed how they never lose suction through the years. They're designs are very appealing and theyre structurally sound.
This vacuum is everything it was advertised to be. It has great suction. it's accessories are useful, and it has other accessory options that make it even better. I found a chart that explains the difference between model numbers (I can't put that information here as it's against the rules to include other sites but this was helpful in determining the difference between model numbers as there is the NV480, NV482, and NV484 that differ only in the amount of accessories included in the box) and that chart showed that one accessory, the 18 inch flex-crevice tool was one thing that should have been included with the NV482 model. It did not come in the box from Overstock.com. No problem though, I called the manufacturer Shark, and they were very helpful and sent this item to me free of charge. I ordered other accessories from Shark that I thought would be useful, and they definitely are (flexible dust brush and the appliance tool). This vacuum works very well on my carpets, most of which are area rugs, and it really does find dirt that other vacuums have left behind. I does not work as well on the bare wood floor, but it definitely works better than any other vacuum I have owned. It's removable canister is great, but made to be held in one hand. It will stand on it's own but the base is not wide enough to rely on allowing it to stand while you're moving the hose around. It could use a base for folks that would like that option but I just hold the handle and it's great. It's easy to remove the dirt, and actually every removable part is clearly marked, operates easily, and snaps back into place. This thing is really a dream to use.
If a straightforward simple vacuum is what you're looking for, and you want a machine that is focused on carpet and hard surface flooring, this is a great choice, especially for the reasonable price. Light weight and powerful. It is surprising how much dirt it pulls compared to other machines I've owned and used.
