Great quality for the cost

I bought my Shark Navigator about two years ago and have highly enjoyed its easy-going functionality, quality attachments, and simple setup. Great for all range of jobs, and stores away easily. Had the brush head break on the inside of the motorized floor brush, but with a short phone call, I already have a new one on the way free of charge! I’ll certainly be purchasing more products from Shark in the future.

Can’t beat it

Best vacuum I’ve ever owned AND I didn’t have to break the bank to get it. When the hose on it ripped I dreaded calling to have it replaced but I had the best over the phone experience and it was covered in my warranty so all free of charge! When this one wears out I will be buying another shark vacuum.

Will never switch!!

I absolutely love this vacuum!! I have had the Shark Navigator for almost 4 years now, and I still have no complaints. It still has a high performance suction and I love being able to wash the filters!! I do not have any animals, but I am positive it would be amazing for pet hair and dander!! If you are looking for a reliable vacuum, this is it.

I Love, Love, Love My Shark Navigator

I have 4 cats and 2 German Shepherd Dogs. I use my Shark Navigator just about everyday and am absolutely amazed at what it picks up. I have a top of the line central vacuum system but I ALWAYS use my Shark on rugs. My unit is several years old. I change the filters on a regular basis. This vacuum is the very best. Couldn’t have pets without it!

Shark navigator NW352 series

Absolutely the best vacuum I’ve ever used. I live in the country and due to extended drought have no grass so lots of dirt and mud get tracked in. I also have indoor dogs. Prior to getting my shark I had vacuumed and steam cleaned my carpet. (I live in small mobile home and my carpeted area is maybe 50 sq ft.) I started my new Shark vacuum and in less than 5 min I had to empty the full canister and clean the filters because it picked up so much dirt and hair.

I started my new Shark vacuum and in less than 5 min I had to empty the full canister and clean the filters because it picked up so much dirt and hair. This continued many times before I got all the dirt out and could use it for an extended period. Also on the cabinets by my stove there was loads of dust bunnies. I tried to vacuum them off with my shop vac and it didn’t remove any. Literally in 1 minute the Shark attachment had removed them all. I doubt seriously I’ll ever use another brand of vacuum.

Love it

I absolutely love my shark, I’m constantly vacuuming wood floors and other various places. But...I do however wish the hose actually stretched 10’ without someone having to hold the vacuum so that I doesn’t fall over.

Disabled Friendly

Having MS, weight and maneuverability are a must for saving energy. This vacuum gives that in spades while doing a great job of cleaning the carpet and the floor. I’m very pleased with my Shark; wouldn’t trade it if you asked.

Best for the Money

I have had the same Shark Navigator for 3 years now. I own 5 cats and a German Shepard. This vacuum is great at getting up pet hair. I am really fastidious about keeping the filters and little cones in the cyclonic chamber clean. I think this has helped the vacuum keep its suction power as good as it was the day I bought it. I’m not too happy with the bare floor part of the vacuum, but I never have found a vacuum that works well with that. The same area that is used for carpets works great. I am having to...more

I am having to replace the hose on the vacuum, but I’m pretty hard on my vacuum and I’m sure it’s my mistreatment that has caused it to split at the connection. It has fallen down the steps numerous times and nothing has ever fallen off of or broken on it. I would highly recommend this vacuum for someone on a budget. I’m pleasantly surprised at how long it has lasted thus far.

I still love this vacuum! It started to lose a little suction power, but removing the foam filters and cleaning them as well as the cyclone? part in the dust cup has restored it to like new status!

Can the steam mops be used on the wood floors that click together.? I believe they are compressed wood, not solid.

This vacuum is fantastic! My grandmother has one and it cleans the house very well, leaving no dirt or dust behind. Shark quality is awesome, would definitely recommend to a friend, and already have. Great vacuum, Shark!

Great Vac until something needs replaced

Love it does a great job but when you need a replacement wait till your told mail it to them and they will fix it and keep in mind your paying shipping BOTH WAYS but they will in deed fix it for free under warranty. Then the girl tried to up-sell me and get me to just buy a new vac same model at a reduced rate of $80.00 and I only paid $120.00 for it brand new...LOL So yes it is a great vac as long as it don’t break down and need repaired then it still costs you!!

It’s Phen

I love this Shark Navigator that my sister has purchased four years ago!!! It has its own unique features and qualities that an owner is looking for in a vacuum cleaner. It makes her carpet look brand new. It sucks up better than Dyson vacuums, even though I heard that Shark and Dyson are neck to neck. When you are washing the filter at the bottom you can fold a paper towel in half, cut it, and put that as a replacement to continue vacuuming

I have had my shark about 7 years now. I sing it’s praises enough. Before I purchased the Shark Navigator I went through a vacuum every 6 months. Something would break. Now I am in love will never buy another brand.

Shark Navigator

A supprisingly good vacuum, great suction and cleaning. Wasn’t expecting it to perform as well or even better than my expensive vacuum. Down side, filters can’t be purchased at the store but I’m finding that happening to many products. It’s just really annoying.

Shark Navigator Deluxe NV42

I like everything about the vacuum cleaner I purchased from Amazon in August 2014, except that the handle bolt keeps falling out. Too much time has passed for me to return the vacuum cleaner to Amazon. Perhaps the problem could be solved with a replacement bolt and nut, but I can’t find out how to make a request either at Amazon or here

Never been more impressed

I got nv80 for my birthday because my OLD ge vac died (it still used bags too) and I had no idea how bad a job it was really doing. The Shark is amazing ! My apartment has never felt so clean, it brought the carpet back to life. Its soft again like brand new carpeting ! So happy I could vacuum all day with it even though I don’t need to because it works so well your done in minutes!

I’ve had my shark navigator for almost 3 yrs and I lost the front wheel and the small floor hose split. Customer service to help replace these parts was exceptional. I can’t say enough about them. I had a problem getting it delivered to my house and the supervisor called back right away and helped to straighten everything out. Thank you!

Hands down my favorite vacuum. Pro Carpet cleaner here of 8 years. i recommended this vac to every one of my clients. The brush beats down very well agitating and loosening soil while the impressive suction picks it up. even when the container is full the suction works solid . A+ no need for a 600$ vacuum that will do the same. Shark 4 life ..

I bought the Shark Navigator for my wife about 6 months ago and we love it! We’ve never had a vacuum that cleans as well as this one does. Easy to use, easy to clean, it has great suction, and is versatile for whatever job needs to be done around the home. Excellent product.

My Search is Over!

I had to retire my very heavy Bissell Powerforce, which I loved. It was just too heavy to lug around, plus, there was dust loss in the air whenever I vacuumed. I tried and returned 6 vacuums after purchase because they were either difficult to use, cheesy in build, and not so great on cleaning. Enter the Shark... This Shark vacuum is lightweight for me to maneuver and the swivel is a bonus.

I like the switch to bare floors when I use it on tile, then switch to various wool and acrylic rugs. The suction release is a great option to have, although I’ve never had to use it. Just a great vacuum in an easy-to-handle package, great warranty, and great functioning machine. Wow!

Perfect for RV!

Have had this for over a year. I bought it based on Consumer Reports review in regards to pet hair. Is it perfect? Not exactly (nothing is), but it doesn’t disappoint!! It is truly amazing how much pet hair it picks up!! I love the hand held ’beater’ but it has already lost the ’lint strips’ - not that it would make much difference. Have recommended this to others already & am thinking of getting one for the house!

I expect to become a repeat customer.

Very pleased with the Navigator!! Seems thoughtfully engineered - comes apart in various configurations very easily, good suction, easy to empty dirt, fairly lightweight. The only drawback is the short, not-very-flexible hose. I wish it were stretchier and a bit longer. Overall, I expect to become a repeat customer.

She took back her Kirby the next day! I also did the same test with my mother-in -law, who cleans houses for a living! She has an Electro Lux. My Stick vac beat her Lux with a "power" head LOL! My Shark Stick vac beat 2 major heavy duty vacs & wasn't even a full sized vac!! If that doesn't convince you to try & buy....Nothing will! I bought the Navigator 2 yrs. ago & have gotten my 3 daughters, mom, sister & 3 of my friends to buy Sharks & not 1 of them have been disappointed! In all I've gotten 12 people to buy! :)
