Euro-Pro make a number of different appliances, however its vacuum cleaners are sold under the brand name of Shark. Shark vacuum cleaners have received some negative reviews about some its models but this shouldn't necessarily deter you from buying its vacuums.

Shark vacuum cleaners are mass produced units that are sold at substantially lower prices than their competitors. They're found in large department stores and can be readily bought online. Also, parts and bags are very easy and inexpensive to buy.

Now let's talk about those negative reviews. The complaints are mainly about its canisters. There have been complaints about them clogging and overheating. To make matters worse many customers have complained about the poor level of customer service from both the retailer and the company. Complaints about company service are notoriously difficult to make a judgment on; after all, many customers will still complain, even if the retailer replaces the vacuum at no cost.

However, Shark upright vacuum cleaners fair rather better. The Shark Infinity NV30 is the company's flagship model. It's a bagless, cyclonic vacuum cleaner. So, if you don't like bagless, then the Shark vacuum cleaner isn't for you. However, if you do like cyclonic vacuums but can't justify the spending the large amount of cash required for a Dyson or Hoover WindTunnel vacuum, then you might be interested in what Shark has to offer. It retails for considerably less than either of them - half the price of the Dyson DC07 Original.

It also comes with a lifetime, washable filter, so there won't be any additional running costs on either bags or filters.

The Infinity comes with a large 12 amp motor and a 12" cleaning surface - a little on the small side but okay for most homes (14" for the Dyson and 15" for the Hoover). Its weight is just over 19 lbs which is the same as the Dyson Original. Other good features include; 5 height adjustments; furniture guard bumper; edge cleaning bristles; and an ergonomic grip on the handle. The power cord is 25 foot in length which is rather short; the Dyson comes with 37 feet, although the Hoover WindTunnel only comes with 28 feet.

Another shortcoming for some will be that it does not have automatic carpet height adjustment unlike the Dyson and Hoover. But, it does have a feature lacking in both the Dyson and Hoover; a headlight!

But seriously, the Shark infinity upright vacuum cleaner does lack some of the feature of its competitors and some of its specification do look a little under par when compared to the others, however, it does cost half as much. Not everyone needs automatic carpet height adjustment and a cord length of 18 feet will be perfectly acceptable for some.

As I've stated already, vacuum cleaner reviews are more favorable towards the Infinity. Customers overwhelming vouch for its great suction power and most are extremely happy with their purchase. Whether you decide to buy a Shark vacuum cleaner will be a judgment call on the money you'll save against some features you'll have to forgo.
