The Shark Pet Perfect vacuum is a hand-held model, made especially for picking up that pesky pet hair. As far as looks go, the green and black colored exterior looks quite nice. In this review of the Shark Pet Perfect vacuum cleaner, I’ll be going over this model’s strengths and weaknesses. First off, here’s a rundown of the best features you’ll find on this model: Twister cyclonic technology, a charging indicator light, washable filter, easy-to-remove dust cup, detachable motorized brush, and it’s powered by a 14.4V battery. Of course, the motorized brush is the piece that is meant to help pick up the pet hair – and it actually does a pretty good job of it.
Now I’ll go over the negative aspects of the Shark Pet Perfect vacuum. Like most cordless models, the battery does not last very long at all. You also have to clean the filter after every use, or it doesn’t work as well. Another thing I’m not a big fan of is the vent on the bottom of the unit. It tends to blow around dust that you are trying to sweep up. While the Shark Pet Perfect vacuum cleaner definitely has it’s problems, I think it does a pretty good job at cleaning up pet hair. I’m only giving it a 3.7 / 5 star rating, because of those issues.
The Shark Navigator Never Loses Suction is a smaller upright vacuum, which sells for around $180. In this review, I’ll go over the Shark Navigator Never Loses Suction vacuum’s best features and it’s biggest weaknesses. Here’s a list of this models most prominent features: motorized roller brush, 30 ft cord length, crevice tool and dusting brush, 11 inch cleaning path, lifetime filter and it only weighs 14.7 lbs. I was also surprised by the suction power on this little vacuum – I guess they were confident in naming this model for a reason.
Now, I’ll go over the Shark Navigator Never Loses Suction’s potential weaknesses. First off, the dust cup is pretty small. If you use this vacuum for more than a room or two, you’ll be emptying it out often. Also, it’s not the lightest model out there, even though the company tries to claim it is super lightweight. I also wish the cleaning path were just a little wider. It can take longer to vacuum a room with a narrow cleaning path. All in all, I really like the Shark Navigator Never Loses Suction vacuum cleaner. It’s a very powerful model, which costs a lot less than a Dyson or other high-end model. I’m giving it a 4.5 / 5 star rating.
Our Shark Ultralight vacuum review: As it’s name suggests, this vacuum isÂ a fairly lightweightÂ 9.75 lbs. The Shark Ultralight Multi-Vac is also very uniquely designed – but in an good way. The strange design does have a purpose though. It can be converted from a stick vacuum to a hand vac, and it also has a bending pivot to reach tight places. A few other features on this model include: a 25 ft power cord, an 11 inch cleaning path, a wand, pet turbo brush, and a 3 year manufacturer warranty.
Unfortunately, there are a couple issues with the Shark Ultralight Multi-Vac vacuum. The most common problem is that the canister does not stay secure when you are using it. It snaps in place, but then slowly comes off when you start vacuuming. Another issue is how small the canister is – it fills up way too fast. Last thing I have an issue with is the awkward shape of the Shark Ultralight Multi-Vac. It looks fine, but just takes some getting used to. Overall, I’m giving this model a 4 / 5 star rating.
My brief Shark Navigator vacuum review: A lot of folks probably first heard about the Shark Navigator vacuum through a TV infomercial. Normally, I think infomercial products are more hype than great products – but, in this case I think the Navigator is living up to the hype.
At just 15 pounds, this vacuum is easy enough to lug up and down stairs with ease. Also included are a couple of useful tools so you can actually clean up the stairs on your way up (they work well for couches / dog hair as well). If you have a bigger room, you’ll love the 30 ft cord. You don’t have to plug and unplug it nearly as much as with a shorter 20 ft cord.
The Shark Navigator vacuum does have a couple areas it could use improvement. One of those is the size of the dust cup. If you have a fairly busy area of the house with kids & dogs, you’ll notice how fast the cup gets filled up. Also, the super stretch hose isn’t nearly as stretchy as they make it sound. It works alright, but you’ll find it’s not actually that long. Lastly, it doesn’t include a HEPA filter. But, overall I think the Shark Navigator is definitely worth the money and even most of the hype you see on the TV infomercial.
A Shark VX3 Sweeper vacuum review states: “The Shark VX3 sweeper vacuum cleaner is very lightweight, as advertised. It also has great mobility, allowing you to go lots of small areas quite easily. The tray is not too hard to empty, so that is a plus.
Now, a couple negative things about the vacuum. It’s overpriced, in my opinion. They allow you to make 4 easy payments, but this adds up to be quite a big chunk of money for a little sweeper. I would also say it doesn’t have the power they claim it to have. It picks up some small stuff, but it’s certainly no powerhouse. Lastly, the battery life is much shorter than 90 minutes. They claim the Shark VX3 sweeper vacuum cleaner can last up to 90 mintues, but I’ve never been that lucky. It would be a decent buy, if you can get it for half price.”
A user’s Shark SV736 Cordless Motorized Brush handheld vacuum cleaner review says: “The Shark SV736 Cordless Motorized Brush handheld vacuum cleaner is the perfect machine for small jobs around the house or even sucking up crumbs in your car. One of the best things about this vac is how cheap it is. Also, the brush does a great job at sweeping up pet hair. The unit works great just about anywhere, but I’ve really noticed it cleans the couches, area rugs, sheets & hardwood floors exceptionally well.
On the negative side, there’s really not a lot to complain about. I don’t like the cradle so much, because it’s hard to get it in and out sometimes. Also, it’s a little heavier than similar competitors models. And another detail attachment would be nice. But, the Shark SV736 Cordless Motorized Brush handheld vacuum cleaner does what it’s supposed to do, and does a great job at it.”
A user reviews the Euro-Pro Shark S3101 Electric Steam Mop Cleaner: “I bought the Euro-Pro Shark S3101 Electric Steam Mop Cleaner because it said you could use it on hardwoods as well as tile. I used it first on a foreclosure house my brother bought and WOW…the tile was clean in super easy and super fast! It works wonders on my wood floors. No streaks and so light, even my 8 year old can use it. I like how easy it was to fill and change out the cleaning pad. The cleaning pad stays in place easily, unlike other mops I have used. I did purchase the Euro-Pro Shark S3101 Electric Steam Mop Cleaner at a local Bed Bath and Beyond using a 20% coupon but they WILL take items back if they break and you have the receipt. For something like this, I wanted that assurance without having to fuss with a shipping return.”
An Amazon user reviews the Euro-Pro Shark V1725 Quick-and-Quiet 10-Inch Cordless Sweeper Vacuum: “I like the Euro-Pro Shark V1725 Quick-and-Quiet 10-Inch Cordless Sweeper Vacuum alot better than my 3 speed Shark sweeper. It is more compact, so it gets around places real easy, where the other is 13 inches wide and won’t fitin certain areas as easily. I use it everyday and it runs fine, with no problems. The bigger one seems to bog down on carpets, even when I set it for carpets, but not this little guy. Oh, and the Euro-Pro Shark V1725 Quick-and-Quiet 10-Inch Cordless Sweeper Vacuum is alot quieter that the bigger ones, but does the job as good or better in my opinion.”
