When it comes to good vacuum cleaners, finding one that works for a decent price is much easier said than done. However, we do have a prime model for you to look at, one with great suction, versatility, and all around awesome functionality. We’re here today to do a Shark NV650 review for your benefit. Let’s get right to it!
Shark NV650 Review
The Shark NV650 is one of our favorite 2 in 1 lift away vacuums that we have had the pleasure of using. Personally, we live in home with lots of pets, lots of people, lots of allergy sufferers, and all of that fun stuff. This means that we need a fantastic vacuum with all of the required features to keep our home clean, free of dirt and dust, and to control those allergies too.
The Shark NV650 Vacuum has more or less all of the features we need to clean all of the floors in our home plus more.
Features & Benefits
One of our favorite features about the Shark NV650 Vacuum is that it is a 2 in 1 lift away vacuum cleaner. Yes, we can use it as a full sized upright vacuum cleaner to clean the flat surfaces in our home. It seems to work really well for all kinds of floor types.
The upright configuration is great for cleaning large areas, plus we can let go of the vacuum and it will stand up all on its own. The second part of the 2 in 1 aspect is the lift away canister. We can easily convert the Shark NV650 Vacuum from an upright model to a lift away canister vacuum. This is really convenient for getting into tight spaces, especially when it comes to maneuvering up and down stairs.
It also comes in handy when combined with the hose because it also allows us to get up to hard to reach areas without too much effort.
Another thing that everybody here really appreciates about the Shark NV650 Vacuum is that it comes with a HEPA filter. This is great for our home because we have lots of people with allergies and/or breathing problems. This high quality HEPA filter gets rid of dust, allergens, pollen, and all other kinds of impurities in the air. The air that this vacuum spits out is clean and healthy to breathe, an obvious bonus.
We do also like how the Shark NV650 Vacuum is a bagless vacuum. It comes with a simple filtering mechanism combined with a fairly large dust collection bin. The dust collection canister is more than large enough so we can vacuum our whole home several times over without having to empty it.
Also, when it does finally come time to empty the canister, all we have to do is detach it, click a button, and all of that dirt falls right out of the bottom.
Something else that is beneficial about this vacuum is that it has a great brush roll for carpets. With the flick of a switch, we can easily change from hard floor cleaning to carpet cleaning. The Shark NV650 Vacuum does a good job at both.
In terms of accessories, the Shark NV650 Vacuum comes with a pet tool for getting rid of those pet hairs, which is especially useful for upholstery. It also comes with a hard floor hero, which is a bare floor cleaning tool for hardwood and other hard floors.
Finally, we also like the crevice duster which allows us to get into really tight spaces. The nozzle does actually have LED lights to spot hidden dirt, which is also true for the power head on the upright configuration.
What we like:
- Quite powerful
- Ideal for pet hair and upholstery
- Works well for carpet and hard flooring – easily switches
- 2 in 1 upright and lift away vacuum
- Accessory for hard floors, pet hair, and crevices
- Large dust canister – easy to empty
- HEPA filter included
- LED lights on the nozzle and upright configuration
What we didn't like:
- Does not get too deep into very thick carpets
- Power cord is not as long as it could be
At the end of the day, this Shark NV650 review should have told you everything you need to know about it. We do really like this model, mainly for the reasons we described above. It’s definitely worth checking out if you are on the hunt for a new, affordable, and really useful vacuum cleaner.
