"Better than my Kirby or Dyson!"5.0 starson by MikeyInTheD
Pros: Affordable, powerful, useful tools, lightweight, easy to maneuver
Cons: Narrow head
Summary: I have owned a Kirby Sentria and a Dyson as my last two vacuums. The Shark Navigator is as good as my Dyson and better than my Kirby(after a couple years of use). The unit is lightweight, powerful, and fits between chairs and other furniture without having to move everything just to vacuum the house. My Kirby lost power once the bag was about 1/2 full. The Shark continued to have the same great suction even when the canister is full. Lifetime filters and a canister rather than bags - this thing will pay for itself in a couple years compared to my Kirby. I bought this as suggested by a family member and after seeing it got an A- (in the top 10) from Good Housekeeping's Best Vacuums for Allergies. Every vacuum ahead of the Shark was $350+ on the list. EVERYONE should own this vacuum!
