Consensus

our Verdict

Analysts lauded the Shark Cordless Vertex Pro Powered Lift-Away, approving it for carpets and hard floors. Reviewers at Modern Castle praised its 0.8L dirt cup.

However, if you need a more hygienic unit, see the Kenmore Intuition Bagged review. The vacuum weighs a reasonable 12.57 lbs, and researchers at Britannica approved its removable pod for stairs and vehicles.

It clocked in at a good 63 minutes during battery life tests. However, If you prefer a cordless model, check out the Shark APEX UpLight review.

Cleaning tests revealed an excellent 100% large debris pick-up rate on bare floors and 73% on low-pile carpets and effectiveness around furniture. See the Shark ION F80 review for a bendable model designed for homes with furniture.

Tests revealed a low 0.98 kPa suction power figure and a normal 75.7 dBA noise rating. The allergy-friendly HEPA filter prevented dirt leakage in tests.

However, see our Shark Anti-Allergen Pet Power review for an even more allergy-friendly unit. The Vertex Pro doesn’t come with a turbo brush, however.

Reason to Buy

  • Excellent performance on all floor types
  • Good battery life
  • Outstanding pet hair pick-up rate
  • Low on-going costs
  • LED headlights

Reason to Avoid

  • The brush roll is not removable
  • Poor stain-removal performance
  • Lacks a turbo brush

The Shark Cordless Vertex Pro Powered Lift-Away has an LED display that shows battery and performance parameters, but the Shark ION P50 Upright vacuum lacks such a display.

The LG CordZero A9 Ultimate cordless stick vacuum makes much less noise (71 dBA) than the Shark Cordless Vertex Pro Powered Lift-Away (75.7 dBA). However, the Shark vacuum boasts a much bigger 0.8L dust cup, which contains more debris than the 0.35L dirt compartment of the LG vacuum.
