Editor's Notes

December 18, 2018: Investigated various Shark models, selecting the Navigator Lift-Away as a top choice; even though it can be tipped over more easily than some other models, it's tough to beat its combination of extra features, price, and suction. Also added several Bissell models thanks to their budget-friendly pricing, including the CleanView and Pet Hair Eraser.
