Who should buy Shark CZ500UKT

  • The Shark CZ500UKT is a great option for pet owners, because it is equipped with an anti-hair wrap that prevents hair from getting tangled in the cleaning nozzle. It also comes with a mini motorized tool that can easily remove pet hairs from soft surfaces, such as sofas and beds.
  • The Shark CZ500UKT is an excellent choice if you have back problems, thanks to its Flexology technology that prevents you from having to bend down to clean under the furniture.
  • The Shark CZ500UKT works well for those who have different types of floors, because it comes with a DuoClean head that is equipped with 2 rollers: a soft roller for hard floors, and a brush roller for carpets.
  • The Shark CZ500UKT produces little noise on low and standard suction modes, making it suitable for those who have small children, or pets, who are easily frightened by loud noises.

Who should NOT buy Shark CZ500UKT

  • The Shark CZ500UKT's power cable is only 9 meters long, which might be too short for people who live in large houses. If you don't want to use an extension cord, you might prefer the Henry Numatic HVR200-11 with its 26.8 meter cable, or even the Miele Blizzard CX1 PowerLine SKRF3 that has an 11 meter long cable.
  • The Shark CZ500UKT has a small dust bin that needs to be emptied frequently. If this is a problem for you, you might be better off with the Bosch BGC41X36 that has a 2,4 L dust bin, or vacuum cleaners that come with disposable dust bags like the AEG VX9-2-ÖKO with a capacity of 5.0 L.

Verdict

The Shark CZ500UKT is a bagless vacuum cleaner in the upper price range. It is equipped with smart features, such as Flexology technology, anti-hair wrap and a DuoClean head, which make it a valuable tool in any household.

The DuoClean feature is also present in other Shark vacuums. It has 2 rollers in 1 cleaning attachment: a soft roller for hard floors, and a brush that can deep clean carpets. The DuoClean head is great for those who have long hair, or pets that shed, because it is equipped with anti-hair wrap technology that prevents the hairs from getting tangled in the brush. The Shark CZ500UKT also has LED headlights at the front of the cleaning nozzle allowing you to clean in dark areas.

Aside from the DuoClean head, the Shark CZ500UKT also comes with a crevice tool, brush cleaning attachment and a mini motorized tool. The crevice tool is great for vacuuming hard-to-reach areas because it has a long and narrow nozzle, while the brush cleaning attachment is handy for cleaning delicate objects. The mini motorized tool efficiently removes pet hairs from soft surfaces like sofas, beds and car seats. The vacuum also comes with 2 handy storage clips, that you can attach to the wand, to easily access the 2 cleaning attachments you use most often.

The Shark CZ500UKT is equipped with Flexology technology, a hinge in the middle of the tube that bends when you press the button. It is a handy feature for those who have back problems and struggle to bend down to clean under the furniture. The Flexology technology also allows the vacuum to stand up on its own, making it more convenient to store.

Another feature that those with back problems will greatly appreciate is the accessibility of the controls. Unlike other vacuum cleaners, like the AEG VX9-2-ÖKO, which require you to reach down to the body to change the cleaning mode, the Shark’s CZ500UKT controls are located on the handle.

The Shark CZ500UKT is bagless, meaning that you won’t have to buy a new dust bag every time the old one fills up. You will just have to remove the dust bin, and empty it out. This can save quite a bit of money in the long run. On the downside, the Shark CZ500UKT’s dust bin is quite small. At 1.6 L, it will require you to empty it out frequently, especially if your house is large or tends to accumulate a lot of dirt.
The vacuum has a 9 meter long, retractable power cable that is neatly stored in the cylinder vacuum. If you live in a large house, this might not be enough because it is quite short compared to vacuum cleaners like the Henry Numatic HVR200-11, which has a 26.8 meter cable.

Another minor inconvenience of the Shark CZ500UKT is that it weighs 7.99kg, which might be too heavy for some people to carry up and down the stairs. If you prefer a lighter model, the 5.5kg Philips FC9741/09 may serve you better.

Overall, the Shark CZ500UKT is an excellent product for those who have pets, back problems and different floor types in their house. It might be more expensive than other vacuums, but its host of impressive features make it worth the price.
