Shark vs Dyson vacuum? The saga continues. This rivalry seems to go on forever. However, for the budget-conscious, it makes perfect sense to go for the former as opposed to the latter. When you don’t have a lot of money, it makes perfect sense to make that choice. After all, it’s all you can afford.
Simply put, the major differences between the two brands are price, sucking power, and weight. The latter tends to be more expensive, heavier, and have more suction. On the other hand, the former isn’t as pricey, lighter to carry around the house, but doesn’t seem to have as much energy for heavy-duty work.
For basic upright models, the pricier choice seems to lord it over the competition when it comes to pet hair tests. However, many homeowners find cheaper alternatives more versatile. In fact, the corded, lightweight version of the low price leader earns high marks in performance.
So the bottom line is, if all you want is a clean floor or carpet, the cheaper version will do. However, if you’re a stickler for deep cleaning, you need to be willing to pay the price.
