Review the Product

Cleaning Performance: sssss

The Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-away Speed Vacuum NV803 is an above average performance when it comes to cleaning.


When we tried to get rid of dirt and debris from our testing room the results were amazing.

The amazing fact is that this ingenious vacuum employs two different electric brushrolls to get rid of them. The soft one which is placed in front of the nozzle assists in catching light dust. While the standard one is effective for deeper cleaning. Both the brushrolls showcased effective results.

This vacuum employs breakthrough technology known as “Triple Particle Cleaning” which ensures that it is able to suck in large pieces of dust like Cheerios, light dust stuck on the hard floors and small granular particles like rice or sand.

The amazing thing is that this effective vacuum produces roughly 180 AW of power. This makes it possible for it to overpower most of the uprights sold in the market.

Noise Quality: sssss

Shark Rocket Handheld Vacuum HV292 ranks below average when it comes to producing noise when it is in full operation. It performs at just about 84.8 decibels which is just about below average performer. On average a standard vacuum makes a noise level between 78 to 80 decibels which is just about the noise made by a washing machine.

User-Friendliness: sssss

The Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-away Speed Vacuum NV803 is one of the most user-friendly handheld vacuums available in the market. You can use it either as an upright or by its hose since it is a Lift-Away.

It is light in weight which is particularly useful when you wish to vacuum stairs and items that are lying just above the floor like drapes or couches. We observed that the pod alone weighs only 6.4 lbs. which makes it easy to carry.

By employing a caddy, it is possible for you to transform it into a canister. But, it is not short of limitations either. The very first complaint that people who have used this vacuum make is the amount of noise it produces during full operation.

When we looked closely at the nozzle width of the vacuum it was found to be a bit smaller. The plastic that it is made up of seems to be of low quality. But, it has got to be said that the swivel steering performed quite well.

The best part?

It is possible for you to clean any type of surface using this vacuum.

Price: sssss

The price of Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-away Speed Vacuum NV803 is a bit costly approximately $350 when compared to other branded vacuums available in the market.

But, the good news is that if you get it from Amazon, it is possible to get a 7-year warranty period. Whereas, when you compare it with other websites like Walmart or Sears, the warranty time frame falls to as low as two years.

Overall Value Derived: sssss

The Shark DuoClean Powered Lift-away Speed Vacuum NV803 is one of the most impressive vacuums that we have reviewed so far. The 7-year warranty period on Amazon we suppose seals the deal in this product’s favor. Although, it is a bit pricey at the end of the day the overall cleaning performance provided by this ingenious product gives it an edge over other vacuums.
