Amazon has discounted a popular vacuum cleaner by more than £200. The original price of the state-of-the-art Shark Anti Hair Wrap Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner was £449.99 – but now it's £249, a 45 per cent decrease.
The vacuum cleaner runs for up to 80 minutes and has removable batteries to charge in any plug socket at home. Technology in the device means hair is removed from the brush-roll as you clean so you need never worry about your pooch shedding everywhere. There's also a 'flexology' wand which is able to bend for easy reach and storage.
It transforms into a handheld vacuum and has a crevice tool and upholstery tool. According to expert reviewer Andy Shaw, it's a thinner build than the old models so users will have to be careful because it could be flimsier. Amazon's not the only site that's discounted it, you can also get it at a lower price at Currys and Very, where it's also £249.
Other products that could work similarly are Dyson V11 Pet Cordless Vacuum Cleaner with Detangling or Samsung Jet 70 Turbo Cordless Vacuum Cleaner. Andy Shaw, expert reviewer, said of the Shark: "On the plus side, Shark’s articulated “Flexology” elbow does make cleaning under low furniture very easy indeed."
Andy Shaw, expert reviewer, said of the Shark: "On the plus side, Shark’s articulated “Flexology” elbow does make cleaning under low furniture very easy indeed." Customers are also fans of the Shark vacuum. On Amazon, one person said: "Got this vacuum to replace another well-known brand which had died and was no longer supported. I had heard good things about Shark."
Their review added: "On first use it looks like the right decision, and a few people we know have said they also have and are happy with Shark. The thing that struck me most was there was no plastic packaging. Everything was card or paper. Extremely good example.
"Other electrical items we have bought recently have come with loads of plastic wrapping and polystyrene. All manufacturers should look and learn. Well done Shark!"
Someone else said: "Smooth and sleek to use, picks up amazingly amount of fluff pet hair and dust to leave carpet like new, the collection tub gets surprisingly full as it collects so much grub from the carpet, smooth to use and not too loud love it." But one user was on the fence about the new device, saying: "We had a previous model of this which lasted years and worked great. You can see where they have cut costs on this newer model.
"The build quality feels flimsier that the old one, plus they've got rid of the useful carry handle, and have cut down the number of tools supplied as standard. This one has anti hair wrap which is good, but we still need to open the base to clean clogs of hair (which don't wrap on the beater bar, but do build up and clog).
"The clips to do this are now cheap plastic twist lugs that you open using a coin, rather that the previous model's good quality quick release clips. All in all it feels like a bit of a downgrade. Time will tell how long it will last, but I'm not confident."
The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner is available for £249 from Amazon, Currys, or Very.
