Comment:
I took the time specifically to write a review for this first time in my life about this product and mainly company. I called them with some warranty support, after 2 years of intensive use, and with their 5 year VIP warranty, free of charge sending me a new unit, that is unheard of in this day of age. <br /><br />Apart from that this vacuum lives up to everything it says it does, do not be fooled by the price.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Be aware if not purchased from Authorize dealer, Shark will charge for a replacement unit (over $175.00) My NV 501 died in less then a year of use, and even though Customer Support stated that unit was Defective and not able to be repaired-- since not purchased though authorized dealer they will only offer discounted replacement with 90 warranty on that unit.

Comment:
I literally vacuum everyday since I have 5 dogs. Had a Dyson (Oreck before that) for 10 yrs and it was great.. when started having issues, decided to try Shark. .will go back to Dyson asap. It's fine for low pile carpet.. but the large area rug I have is higher pile and it's a struggle to get over it. The wood floors, it just doesn't do a very good job unless I turn on the rotator and even then, better to use mop. The rotator gets tied up frequently with dog hair that I have to manually stop, pull all the hair off. The great suction just isn't there except on the low pile carpet. While I like the detachable canister (which Dyson doesn't have), other than that will never buy another. I kept trying to give Shark benefit but just not there.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
