Was £229.99! Enjoy quick, easy and more thorough vacuuming with the attractive Shark Rocket NV480UKR Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner in blue and grey.

The Shark Rocket boasts advanced cyclonic technology that separates fine dirt from air, ensuring the washable filters don't get clogged. Thanks to this powerful action you can enjoy long-lasting suction. Thanks to Anti-Allergen Complete Seal technology and HEPA filtration, you'll benefit from cleaner air when using this vacuum. They work together to ensure fine dust particles stay securely inside.

Enhanced swivel steering and floor head illumination lights on the Rocket vacuum allow you to easily navigate household obstacles and ensure you can comfortably reach those difficult spots. This upright vacuum cleaner is incredibly sleek and lightweight so you can carry it from room to room with complete ease.

This machine is pretty light to carry around, performs well on all floor surfaces, and can be lifted out to clean stairs or the car. Being a sealed vacuum it's great for allergy sufferers such as myself or pet owners. Easy to clean and maintain and overall a great price for a Shark. Brush and crevice tools are included.

Great find and thank you, I have a Dyson DC 24 but although great on floors not so good for cleaning car or hard to reach areas. Gets great reviews
I have one of these nearly £200 year or so ago. Brilliant product beats any dyson no problem. Had a few issues with things braking contact shark and they just replaced with a new one great c/service

Thanks.

Just picked one up and its great especially for that money, very impressed.
Just so everybody knows this one still lifts away using the blue button down the side but it's not clearly advertised as such .

Glad it does as its very handy. Was gonna buy the Shark 680 true pet lift away but this one is good enough for my needs. It is a little heavy but easy to move. Not as easy on carpet as the suction is so good.

It picked up so much even though I vacuumed yesterday I was very surprised.

The 680 is amazing, goes right under the furniture and has adjustable suction but for £79.99 this is exceptional value. And yes it's shocking how much more a Shark picks up!
I had one of these demonstrated to me last weekend. It was ok but they need to go a bit further with the design. It's a bit fiddly with all the detaching and re attaching. What they should do is have a combination of having an upright and a cylinder. Best if both worlds. It's nearly there but not quite. I have reserved one and given heat because it's definitely a hot deal at this money.

That's precisely what the Powered Lift Away (NV680) is there for, gives you all the power of an upright but the convenience of a cylinder/lift away vacuum. It doesn't have to be fiddly, they're just trying to cover all bases with the versatility, and it's nice to know that those features are available if you wish to use them. This model isn't quite AS versatile but it gets the job done well without breaking the bank.
I was in Currys last Sunday and the Shark rep was demonstrating the hoovers and I mentioned to her about having an upright / cylinder combined. She might have showed me that one but the design wasn't right as the hose was too short. I will have a look tomorrow when I collect the 480. I didn't take too much notice tbh as it was hot and their aircon wasn't working !!I tried the HV320 as I thought that would be good for the car but it was rubbish as the suction was poor in my opinion. I will see tomorrow what the 480 is like as none of the adverts says it is a lift away model which is surprising when the ads for the others do state lift away. My only concern is it only has a B for performance where our Vax has an A.

The HV320 suction isn't really an issue because even the handheld turbo brush is motorised, ask for some dust on the carpet and try the hand vac with the motorised tool on and you'll be shocked at how well it picks up! The performance ratings aren't really an issue, Shark vacuum cleaners (including the 480) are sealed systems so the dirt can't escape whereas the Vax even with a HEPA filter can still let dust back out, there's no point having max pickup if the dust can get back out! I'm an asthma sufferer so the Shark is a no brainer for me, plus the build quality is far superior, just remember the lift out button on the 480 is on the side, not an official 'lift-away' model but still capable, hope you like it!
thanks!

Unless that's a different model - it doesn't really say the model number. Typical Argos!
regards to argos - none anywhere near doncaster, it looks like the currys original price is a little more expensive than in real life.at the new price it seems good value with good reviews,just looking at ordering 1 now, thanks for the post.
cant get a delivery or collection from currys to doncaster,
Amazing hoover. Got mine (rocket) for £60 on Tesco Direct. Better than a Dyson.

Thanks for the info. You should be working for shark haha. Whilst I accept the motorised brush on the HV320 assists the dust collection this is fine for flat surfaces such as the car seat bases and backs but there are just too many nooks and crannies on a car for that to be effective. I tend to use the crevice tool and just the hose and brush attachment for the car so as a dual purpose hoover it's no good for me. Our current Vax is the same. It has very good suction for carpets but hasn't got enough suction power with just the long hose. Not as efficient as our old Dyson for that purpose and is just hard work. It is each to their own and I was impressed by the other sharks demonstrated to me last weekend which didn't include the one you have posted. I have reserved one and thank you for posting as at this price I think it is too good to miss.

looks like it is the Shark NV480UKP EAN 0622356214841 and this is the UKR
not sure about the difference and can see it is not listed in their website, surely the previous model then: sharkclean.eu/cat…rs/

Must admit I dont find this fiddly at all. The lift off button is low down but not a real issue to be fair. The hose clips off easy and has a decent reach, cable is just about long enough and it is easy to turn brush on and off. I dont thing the 680 would make a massive difference to me as we have no furniture it could fit under.

The performance on this is amazing. I have cleaned my bedroom carpet 3 times now and each time it has got loads out. Makes me feel dirty to think how much the old vax left behind.

This is a bargain. Just goes to show how much marketing can do to sell vacuums as dyson are just like iphones and people think they must be the best because the advert says so and it is expensive.

Couldn't agree more!
just bought this model at reduced price... amazing value with 5 year guarantee and detachable as well for stairs etc
what do we mean by lift off button?

​The main unit lifts off the floor part so you can carry it to do stairs etc
Just picked mine up today. Minor criticisms. It could do with a little longer lead. Wouldn't reach from my hallway to the rear corner of my living room without strangling the wife on the settee. Could be handy at times lol. The lead is also the awful rigid type which you wouldn't normally find on a vacuum cleaner. The lift away part of the Hoover should really have a flat bottom as it won't stand up properly. Saying that these are only minor issues. The main priority of a vacuum cleaner is does it suck.....yes and very well. I have a DysonDC07 and a Vax air reach. Both good Hoovers but today using the shark today our carpets look like they have been hoovered. It is hard going though on thick pile carpets as is the Vax. There only appears to be DYSON who have that sussed with an upright but look at the cost and the Shark is better, just harder going.

There are pros and cons for all products but at £79.99 the Shark is well worth the money and extremely glad I bought it. Sold out now in my local Curry's. Thanks for posting.

All of your criticisms are addressed in the other models such as the NV340 and NV680 which have longer more flexible leads, flat lift off bases and adjustable suction for thick pile carpets. But yes this model at this price is truly brilliant!

Good to see the improvements. They were only minor points although some make a big deal of them. It really is a decent product for the money and nice to see that other manufacturers can now use cyclone features in their products now a certain inventor probably has made more millions than many of us would spend in a lifetime. I am going to have to get rid of one of my Hoovers now but which one shall it be. The heavy DYSON which will stand the test of time and is also a good car hoover or the lightweight Vax with its fiddly hose system. Tough choice as I bought the Vax just to leave upstairs as the DYSON is so flipping heavy.
Some left at Birstall by IKEA if anybody's interested!
the Hughes always has it at this price, albeit it's in orange, but it's same model. PS, excellent vacuum!
I thought I had got myself a good deal which I have, however I decided I was going to buy the small turbo brush for the stairs at £19.99 then I found this.

It would appear to be the same item in a different colour and comes with the pet turbo brush and it's £10.00 less !! Unless anyone knows different.
It looks like it but it's a bit light on the description.
Just checked shark website and its deffo same spec but with pet brush so better value and a bargain at 69 if you have stock local to you. I would have little use for extra tool though would be useful for car as I vac that every few years!

Looks like Dunelm are trying to compete with their model, another great price but of course fewer stores and less availability. Great if you can get one!

Mine gets vac'd about 3 times a year but the little pet brush is ideal for stairs. Unless of course you live in a flat or a bungalow then it will be no use whatsoever. They got stock at my local Dunelm so may take mine back to Currys. I will give Shark a ring tomorrow and find out if there is any other difference. I know Vax do the same with the same model by just adding an extra tool. One thing the one at Dunelm has got also is the flexible crevice tool. Now that's real handy for retrieving Mcdonalds chips from the side of the seat. All in all a good and better deal than this one. If anyone posts don't forget to thank me.

It has the flexi crevice tool (£4.99) and the pet hair turbo brush (£19.99) which I was going to buy as they are really handy for the stairs. I reserved the Dunelm one and my dad has offered to buy the other one so happy days. When I saw him today I told him what I had bought and he said he could do with a new hoover.

Argos are selling one too which also appears to be the same model number with even more tools. However, it would appear to be out of stock which is no surprise at this price. Dunelm too will be out of stock as are Currys in my home town. They are all good deals, yes some better than others but my Vax cost £99.99 with all tools and the Shark is better for around the same cost or less. Represents good value for money.
