Shark Rocket TruePet Ultra Light HV322 Review

Recommended Posts

The Shark Rocket HV322 TruePet Ultra-Light Upright Vacuum is Shark’s latest entry into the highly competitive ‘stick’ vacuum market. This model tries to include the most modern conveniences of today’s vacuums at a price point that is acceptable to most consumers. Reviews on sites like https://thekinglive.com/need-to-find-the-best-vacuum-cleaner-now-you-can-get-the-one.html have been highly laudatory regarding its functionality, but there are a few concessions that Shark had to make in order to bring the price in at just under $200. In the following review, I will explain, in detail, what makes this vacuum great, as well as the points where it had to compromise so as not to be too expensive.


The Shark Rocket TruePet Corded Ultra-Light Upright (HV322) is a corded, ‘stick’ vacuum cleaner. That means it maintains power directly from an outlet through its 30-foot cord and weighs in at just under 9 lbs. due to the ‘stick vacuum’ design. It is an upright vacuum, so the user stands, holding the ergonomic handle, and vacuums from an upright position. Shark’s ‘cyclonic’ technology claims to never lose suction, and the fact that it is powered by a cord means you won’t have to worry about a battery running out of power. In addition to the standard vacuum attachment, the Shark Rocket TruePet HV322 comes with five accessory attachments that can clean those hard to reach places, from floor to ceiling.



The modern vacuum is all about making this laborious process less difficult for the homeowner, and competition is fierce between manufacturers to make the most convenient, cost-effective device on the market. The Shark has several notable features in this area that make it that much easier to use.

LED Lights: The Shark HV322 has 10–yes, 10–LED headlights on the floor base. As you can imagine, catching all of your home’s dust and dirt, even under couches, chairs, and sofas, is not going to be a problem with this vacuum.

Stick Vacuum: The stick vacuum is so popular these days because it reduces handling the bulk of the classic vacuum cleaners of old. From the handle to the vacuum head, there is a hard, plastic, lightweight ‘stick’...and nothing else. That brings the weight of the Shark Rocket Deluxe Ultra-Light Corded Stick Vacuum down to exactly 8.6 pounds. This, of course, makes it very easy to handle.

Swivel Steering: The vacuum head on the Shark HV322 has 45-degree swivel steering, so it can turn on a dime. This makes moving past corners and around furniture very easy. Instead of picking up the whole vacuum, and redirecting it in the direction you want to go, the swivel action turns quickly and easily for you.

32-foot Power Cord: Of course, the latest (and most expensive) vacuums are utilizing cordless, battery-driven technology at this point - but this technology comes with a few downsides. The Shark HV322 is corded. You don’t have to worry about losing battery power, and 32 feet is a long length for you to work within the house.

Easy-Empty Dust Cup: The dust cup on the Shark HV322 is conveniently located just underneath the ergonomic handle. In one simple step (by removing the latch holding the lid), it can be emptied into the nearest garbage can. This makes emptying the dirt and dust a quick, relatively clean process.

Shark HV322 Vacuum Features

Modern vacuum cleaners are designed to do much more than remove dirt and debris from the carpet or floor of your home. As technology has improved, new ideas have been tried and found great success in the vacuum cleaner market. Today’s vacuum cleaners are more like modular do-it-yourself home purifiers than simple floor sweepers. The Shark HV322 is no different. In fact, it has several features that not only deep cleans carpets, but also hardwood floors, upholstery, pet hair, and those hard to reach corners - with the included crevice tool. Here are some of the features that make this vacuum cleaner a strong competitor on the market.

Cyclonic Technology: The power cord ensures a never-ending supply of electricity to the vacuum cleaner, but Shark’s cyclonic technology ensures the vacuum itself will “never lose suction.” Indeed, tests by consumers confirm this vacuum is excellent at deep-cleaning carpets, performing at the same standards as the much more expensive Dyson vacuums.

TruePet Motorized Brush: The Pet Multi-Tool is a useful accessory for the Shark HV322. This attachment snaps into places where the upright ‘stick’ would otherwise be, thus shortening the length from motor and dustbin to brush. The brush itself is designed in a twirl pattern. It rotates at high speed, picking up pet hair from upholstery, cushions, etc. It is a handy accessory for pet-owners.


Duster Crevice Tool: The duster crevice tool is something of a standard for all types of vacuum cleaners, and the Shark HV322 follows in the same mold. It functions perfectly for this particular vacuum. Like the Pet Multi-Tool, the duster crevice tool snaps directly into the hand-held part of the vacuum. It extends generously to give the user true floor-to-ceiling cleaning capability. It narrows along its length, coming to a point, which allows cleaning into tight corners

Hard-Floor Genie: The hard-floor genie adapts the vacuum-power of the Shark HV322 to hardwood floors. Traditionally, vacuums were meant to clean carpets, being of little use for cleaning hardwood floors.

Shark has turned this assumption around with its hardfloor genie. Much like a Swiffer, the hard-floor genie is a flat attachment that uses suction and a microfiber towel to clean hardwood floors to a sparkling finish. This is of great value since it rids the consumer of the need to buy a separate unit to clean hardwood, tile, or other smooth surfaces in the home.


There is a lot to love about the Shark Rocket TruePet Upright Vacuum Cleaner. It brings a lot of value to the consumer at an excellent price. Shark tried to minimize the number and significance of the sacrifices they had to make to bring the vacuum under $200, and they did an excellent job.

It utilizes plastic where Dyson uses aluminum. Its filters are not HEPA grade, and the dirt cup capacity is not as large as what some homeowners may want. But, if you consider its excellent functionality, ease of use, and the variety (and usefulness) of the accessories, the Shark HV322 may just be the right vacuum cleaner for you.

Don’t just take my word for it. As of 12/20/2019, on Shark Duoclean Powered Lift Away - The Shark Nv803, there are 1,671 reviews. These reviews average 4.2/5 stars… and that is not even taking into account the number of negative reviews provided by customers who bought counterfeit Shark vacuums from the site. The price right now is $188 and that is an excellent price for what comes in this package.
