      Shark Navigator Lift Away since my 14 yr old Hoover quit working unexpectedly. This vaccum is amazing! I purchased at Bed bath and Beyond so I was able to also use the 20% off coupon. What a great deal. I didn’t realize how much my Hoover was not picking up until I used this vacuum.

      I brought the NV351 last night at WalMart.
      I am a little disappointed. Didn’t do home work, not the same as ad on TV.
      Can I buy the additional accessories for this model’ also cost and where?
