Downside of Shark Navigator Lift-Away LA322

The downside of Shark Navigator Lift-Away LA322 is about its cleaning path width and cord length. The cleaning path wide of this model is just 9.5’’, so you might need to spend more time cleaning your apartment compared with using Shark APEX (11 inches). Other Shark vacuum cleaners have the same cleaning path width with Shark Navigator Lift-Away LA322 are: Shark Rotator, Shark Duoclean, Shark Rocket (around 9 – 9.5 inches).

Similarly, the cord length of Shark Navigator Lift-Away LA322 is just 25 ft, which is just a little bit shorter than others (30 ft.)

However, we do not think these will be a big issue for most users.
