Shark Navigator Review - Navigator Upright Vacuum Verses Dyson Vac
Shark Navigator Vacuum
The Shark Navigator vacuum cleaner is quickly advancing on competitors in its class. It is even challenging the leader of the industry, Dyson. This is because the Shark Navigator is using the same patented "no loss of suction" technology as the Dyson for a fraction of the price. The Navigator is not only more affordable but it is also lightweight, only weighing about 15 pounds. It is a compact vacuum cleaner designed with the same full-sized features of an upright vacuum at half the size. The Navigator uses Shark Infinity Technology which supplies cyclonic cleaning power with twin motors, one motor controls suction and the other controls the brush bar. Conveniently both motors are powered through one switch.
The Shark Navigator uses bagless technology, easy maneuverability and efficiency with superior suction and on board tools. It can be used on floors with deep carpets and also can be used to clean bare floors because it has the option of turning the brush roll on or off. The Navigator is also powerful when it comes to removing pet hair and it comes with an attachable power turbo brush making it easy to vacuum furniture. It is a popular infomercial item and it is continuing to gain support as user reviews pour in. It's rating 4 out of 5 in almost all consumer reviews.
The Shark Navigator vacuum is easy to maintain. It requires no bags and the lifetime filters just need to be rinsed twice a year. By having these options you are also saving money by not having to purchase the bags or filters which can be rather pricey.

I have been very satisfied with the cleaning results of my Shark Navigator. It removes the pet hair with ease. I was a bit sceptical about the "never loses suction" technology because I have never owned a vacuum that worked as great as the first time after the first time. Each time I use the Navigator it cleans with the same suction and power as when I first plugged it in. The pet hair attachable power turbo brush works well on my furniture, I also find it useful in vacuuming the stairs or under furniture I do not wish to move. The Navigator is lightweight and easily carried with one hand. The dirt container is easy to remove making it a breeze to empty.
These are just my opinions from my personal use of the Shark Navigator. You can purchase one for yourself from their website or from another company who carries their products. I actually bought mine from Walmart paying slightly less than the TV price. I just wanted to share my opinions especially for those of you who may have had difficulties in finding a quality vacuum cleaner.
