Shark Lift-Away Vacuum's from £99.97 (5 Year Guarantee) Save up to £150 @ Currys

Found 30th Aug 2015
Call me a fanboy but I'm an asthma sufferer and I swear by Shark due to their completely sealed systems that prevent even some of the finest particles from escaping from the machine, and they're all listed as No Loss of Suction.

Shark Rocket Pro NV480 - £99.97 (Save £150.02)
Shark Rotator NV500 - £149.97 (Save £130.02)
Also available slightly cheaper where stock is available at Costco (thanks 'moob')

Whilst many might think that £99.97 isn't exactly a bargain, unlike most vacuums in this price range the Shark models actually DO cover all parts and labour, whereas I've experienced issues with certain other orange brands that have revealed that there are exceptions with their guarantees.

Even the entry level Shark Rocket is covered for 5 years, featuring an extended crevice, brush and pet turbo brush, as well as cannister caddy dock and dust away attachment with the two Rotator Models, and adjustable suction if you battle with thick carpet. ALL Shark models at present including the Rocket have lift-away functions which make using the vacuum attachments for skirting boards, cobwebs, stairs and cars incredibly easy with no compromise on power or suction, and I can confirm they do wonders on pet hair and are incredibly easy to steer, and are better at getting under furniture due to the head designs than other vacuums as well as getting around them.

Not for everybody, but personally I've never looked back. If you want a good vacuum without spending a ridiculous amount or coping with tedious maintenance then take advantage of these offers, they're currently on clearance in Currys due to the annual range change, so you can probably barter a bit and buy the display model for a true bargain. If you have any doubts about them, send me a message or check the reviews, they speak the truth, or better still, visit your local store and have a go, Hull have plenty.

There are different generations of the machine, it's a lot cheaper than it has been sold for previously, and at least at Currys you can have a look before you buy, hopefully it helps somebody anyway
had a look at this, its nice, but its a little heavy, i like the simple design.. if only they did one 2kg lighter... Im still swaying towards a dyson...

If price isn't an issue, have a look at the NV340 Lift-Away Lite, it only weights 5.7kg and is actually 3kg in Lift-Away mode, has all the same bits as the NV500 but slimmer and lighter, about £229 at the moment but still better value and lighter than the nearest equivalent Dyson

argos.co.uk/sta…htm Same price at Argos and Currys for the NV340
Hmm but for the price of Dyson I think I would go Dyson...
NV480 700W £99 on Amazon
To quote Wayne's World, It certainly sucks!

I've got the NV500 and the suction is amazing, vacuuming the house is like a workout.

It's cheaper in Costco btw

Ooo, LED headlights!

Ooo, LED headlights!

Haha, I noticed that too, wasn't sure if it was just the way the picture was taken but it's on two pictures....

..Edit, actually the link confirms the NV340 does have LED headlights on the Description tab.

Why would you need those ? In case all the lights go out and you decide to hoover ..which you probably couldn't as all the lights going out would probably indicate a power cut

I have the NV340 and it's an amazing vacuum. The lights are actually really useful - they show up dirt that you wouldn't see otherwise, especially round dark corners of the room.

They're good for areas you often miss just under sofas and skirting boards etc, all models have them but the ones on the NV340 are the nicest

It's just one big marketing scam, a machine like these has the same sort of performance but with much more versatility

The NV340 and NV500 have a valve on the handle to adjust them so they're not as hard to manouvre on thick carpets, just a tip! Yeah it's £10 cheaper but out of stock and Currys also have the other two models, good shout though

Yeah, I do use it, but sometimes it's good to test yourself. This machine is a beast.

Hmm, you haven't seen the facility or spoke to the engineers there I guess...

I would question the usefulness of that nth degree of engineering but I wouldn't call it purely marketing (unlike Apple :D)

Each to their own, I just feel they've had their time, but at the end of the day it's about what's best for each individual, their needs and their home
These are the none ERP models that they're clearing out as now discontinued.

The reason shark couldn't put a label on these was because the pickup rates didn't even make a G grade.

The filters on the shark are very poor quality and deteriorate over time and need replacing, they're not lifetime unlike other brands.

That's not true, they changed them for energy regulations earlier in the year. They do have ratings, mostly rated B for carpet whereas Dyson are mainly D. They're rated slightly lower for hard floor but it's still above 100% pickup.

I can confirm that the filters are lifetime and as long as you clean them every few months as with any modern vacuum it'll be fine. Either way you've got a 5 year parts and labour guarantee so you're covered if an issue occurs in that time. Don't slate a product until you've tried it and learned the facts, some will remain loyal to other brands but for a lot of people that machines are fantastic.
I got a Shark when I moved out and much prefer it to my parents Dyson
