Shark Navigator Lift Away NV352: What is it?

With a lightweight yet strong performance, the Shark Navigator Lift Away NV352 benefits from an advanced cyclonic technology that gives continuous suction power and prevents dirt from clogging the filters. Equipped with a large capacity bagless dust cup, it features an Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology and a HEPA filter that traps 99.9% of the dust in the filter.  

Designed to be efficient and user-friendly, it has swivel steering to make maneuvering around obstacles much easier. The Shark Navigator also has a convenient Brushroll Shutoff button to switch easily between carpet and bare floor cleaning, with the same suction power. 

Extra accessories include a Wide Pet Upholstery Tool, Dusting Brush and Crevice Tools.

Shark Navigator Lift Away NV352: Pricing and value 

The Shark Navigator Lift Away retails at just over $200 – considerably less than other top models. Built to last, it has every option you would need, saving you more time (and money!) in the long-run. Admittedly, there are other models that will have even more function but this model is exceptional value for money. 

Shark Navigator Lift Away NV352: What you need to know

This upright model is powerful and delivers excellent cleaning results for all types of surfaces and upholstery. It works exceptionally well for removing pet hair, which is a plus for any pet owners. Easy to assemble in just 10 minutes, the Shark Lift Away is convenient to use, covering a wide cleaning path. 

Its detachable 2-in-1 Lift Away canister makes it easier to carry around the home, and clean a flight of stairs in half the time. Although it looks bulky, it’s incredibly lightweight with a swivel head that effortlessly glides across surfaces. A downside is it can have a little trouble getting under low furniture. But this may be resolved using one of the premium tools that come with it.

There is a useful Brushroll Shutoff function where you can switch from cleaning hardwood floors to carpets for a more efficient clean. While both settings still deliver a powerful suction, this seems to work more effectively on low-pile carpets.

Bear in mind that the power cord is only 25 feet which is shorter than most vacuum cleaners, and limits the reach. However, its handy accessory hose can be detached and used for those hard-to-reach places.

Shark Navigator Lift Away NV352: User reviews 

The Shark Navigator Lift Away rated favorably in user reviews. Customers at Walmart gave it a 4.6 out of 5 rating, while Best Buy gave it a 96% recommendation.

The vast majority were impressed with its strong suction power, quick performance, and the Lift Away feature. Ease of use and lightweight design proved popular among users with back problems, and the Brushroll switch was praised when switching from hard floors to cleaning carpet.

Others mentioned the wide range of premium accessories, especially the brush tool, which removed bothersome pet and human hair in minutes. 

A small drawback was the shorter power cord length, and a couple of users mentioned the head couldn’t fit under their low bed or couch. However, these minor issues didn’t affect overall performance. 

 Should you buy Shark Navigator Lift Away NV352?

If you’re after power and versatility, the Shark Navigator Lift Away is ideal for every type of cleaning chore. Its versatile 2-in-1, detachable canister makes it easier to dart around the home and tackle those hard-to-reach places. While the upright option and swivel head glides effortlessly across surfaces, the handy Brushroll button enables you to switch from hard flooring to carpet in seconds. The array of premium tools helps to give an exceptional clean, and if you have pets, the brush tool is highly recommended.

A couple of downsides are the 25ft power cord being shorter than most models, limiting reach. And the swivel head is unable to go under low furniture for a thorough sweep, but with the use of the relevant hose attachments, these shouldn’t be a major concern.
