The Shark® Cordless Pet Perfect® II HandVac SV780 is a cordless handheld vacuum cleaner for cleaning pet hair and spot vacuuming. The SV780 is an upgrade of the Shark® Cordless Pet Perfect® HandVac — both of which are older series handheld vacuums designed specifically with pet owners in mind.
When shopping for Shark Pet Perfect Hand Vacs, other model numbers you may come across besides SV780, include SV75, SV75Z, SV780 14, SV780_N, SV780_N 14, SV780SP_N, SV780W. The 80 series numbers refer to the Pet Perfect® II with the letters standing for different vendors.
This lightweight portable vacuum model is features, a Ni-MH battery 18.0 V to give energy and 4 attachments for different tasks. Users love this model for its versatility and strong suction power.
However, there are quite many biased opinions when talking about the ease of filter replacement and maintenance cost. But overall, this portable vacuum consistently gets great user reviews and is still a best seller. When we last checked, it was also about half the price of the larger Shark® Cordless Pet Perfect® XL Lithium-Ion Handheld Vacuum (LV801) model.
If you have seen any of our other reviews, you probably read about how purchasing older vacuums can be a great way to save money. As long as the vacuum has the features you need, this makes sense but there is a downside.
First of all, just newer models often go on sale making it possible to get better features and technologies for a similar price range. Additionally, replacement parts can be harder to get for discontinued models.
For those reasons, you may also want to take a look at some of Shark’s other handheld vacuums before you make a decision. Some of their best rated models include:
- Shark CH951 UltraCyclone Pet Pro Plus Cordless Handheld Vacuum
- Shark Rocket with TruePet Motorized Brush Corded Hand Vacuum
- Shark WV201 WANDVAC Lightweight Cordless Handheld Vacuum
To be honest, we really like the innovation of the Shark® WANDVAC™ in terms of how the design makes it easy to get into small spaces. It packs a lot of power and versatility and portability in handheld vacuum that only weighs 1.4 pounds!
