Pros Great value, good at cleaning hard floorsUnmatched cleaning performance, very convenient and easy to useGreat battery life, fantastic at cleaning hard floors, very easy to useCompact, great at cleaning carpet, convenientFantastic cleaning power, versatile, easy to use
Cons Not terribly convenient, more difficult to useExceptionally expensive, on the loud side, doesn't pick up well when going "reverse" over debrisA little priceyShort battery life, expensiveHeavy, loud
Bottom Line Doing a solid job at cleaning both hard and soft floors, the Shark Navigator is a fantastic value optionWhile this product excelled in all of our tests and is undeniably the top performer when it comes to stick vacuums, the V10 is incredibly priceyFor those that want the best of the best when it comes to these products, the Shark IONFlex is the clear choice overallThe V8 by Dyson is an exceptional cordless vacuum that cleans great but might clean out your walletThe Rocket is the top product that you can get with unmatched cleaning power
