Shark NV356E vacuum cleaner review

Previously, I have written about the Shark vacuum cleaner and some of the customers mailed to me, asked for the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional NV356E. Surprisingly, they asked me how to deal with the cord because the upper part is so light and it is hard to maneuver when cleaning. And, that is why it leads me to write this detailed Shark NV356E vacuum cleaner review about this product. Afterwards, please read  Best Vacuum Cleaner 2017 to study more machines.

A brief summary of Shark NV356E vacuum cleaner review

Allegedly, the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional NV356E has the strongest suction of any vacuum. It has a self-adjusting cleaner head that automatically adjusts between carpets and hard floors – sealing in suction. Also, the bristles on the brush bar have been made shorter for making superior performance on hardwood floors.

What customers are saying?

Review summary

While having testing its features, I have also read more than 7,500 comments and reviews from real-buyers from Amazon about this product. Not surprisingly, up to 75% of the reviews are positive thanks to the strong suction and easy-steering technology of the vacuum. But the problem stays in the weight and around 10% of the customers felt disappointed about not having LED lights when they have to clean in dark places. Also, Shark needs to pay more attention to the customer service, even though they claim to be very helpful.

As you can see, besides service, Shark needs to improve the model and some design features of the vacuum if they want to keep customers stay with them. But for the price that Shark offers, it is undeniable that it is such a big deal for any one when choosing a new vacuum. Shark NV356E vacuum cleaner review

Pros and Cons

First, this Shark is usually welcome by its excellent suction and very easy so assemble. Furthermore, I am sure that you will never worry about the noise as well as maneuverbility with just a twist of your wrist. If you have much problems with your carpets, this Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional NV356E review will never let you down. Otherwise, there are something you need to consider about such as the light and under-bed cleaning ability. In some cases, you will be confused when using this with cord placement cleaning process, but at the end it would take you some effort to figure it out.

Overall, this lightweight and easy to handle the Shark NV353 vacuum cleaner review capabilities in the handbox is also very similar to the NV356E. Due to its impressive carpet cleaning and pet hair pickup, you may find this one more appropriate if your apartment is not so big.
