Iím looking for opinions on these. Do you have one, which one and pros and cons....

Obviously a device designed for use in a sharknado. The one with the widest nozzle to catch the biggest sharks is my recommendation 😂

Trustpilot reviews are very hit and miss - difficult to say reading them. I notice no replies to the comments.

Judging by comments I have seen online, some people say Sharks are wonderful, some say Dysons are wonderful, some say Sharks are rubbish, some say Dysons are rubbish.

Have you looked at the Which reviews? Funnily enough I've got a load of stuff in front of me at the mo, because I'm toying with the idea of getting a cordless vacuum, and I see that Which does compare the two (though not necessarily the models you are looking at, I guess).

I would recommend asking at various local shops. I would say that both Dyson and Shark are nice, though Sharks aren't so popular, in my opinion. As for the reviews, here check this one on [robotsnavigator.com], hope it helps. Overall I would say that almost any Shark vacuum is lightweight, but that could also mean its fragile, the choice is up to you.

According to Which? there's not much between Dyson ans Shark - except the price.

The best of each in their latest survey was
Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal 2 (£299) and the
Shark Lift Away True Pet NV601UKT (£184).
Even cheaper - and as good - was the AEG X Force VX6-2-CB-P (£99).

I got rid of my old vacuum cleaner because it was just gathering dust.

Which (and other reviews) found the Dyson V11 to be head and shoulders above any other cordless vacuum.

It is eye wateringly expensive, however it's presently on offer at both Dyson and John Lewis -£100 off. Still eye wateringly expensive though big grin

Don't buy Dyson. He's an arch Brexiteer and then he moved his company from the UK to Singapore.

All of these tests were done AFTER the EU imposed power restrictions on vacuum cleaners. The majority of vacuums since then are in the power range of 700-900watts so as to comply with the 80Db noise limit also. Previously the best vacuums were in the power of 1200 - 1500 watts.

Power generally equates to the strength of the suction provided, hence none of the latest models have seriously impaired performance compared to previously. Simply put they suck because they don't have enough suck.
