Round 1: Performance

Hard surface cleaning★★★★★★★★★★

Pet hair cleaning★★★★★★★★★★
Crevice cleaning★★★★★★★★★★
Finder rating★★★★★★★★★★

The WV200UK works well if you have bits of hair, dust and small debris on your floor and carpet. But the CH950UKT picks up all that and more with its motorised head tool. It’s very good at picking up pet hair, plus doesn’t clog with larger debris on other surfaces.

Round 2: Convenience

The WV200UK has a small capacity, which is why it’s so light and easy to manoeuvre. This means you’ll be emptying it a lot more often. At least it has an automatic dust release button, which the CH950UKT has but it’s a lot more fiddly. However, the CH950UKT can also store a lot more dust and won’t clog easily. It doesn’t have a charging dock, but that’s a minor inconvenience.

Round 3: Charge time and run time

Charge time (hours)2.54
Run time (minutes)810

The CH950UKT runs for slightly longer but has a longer charge time than the WV200UK. The WV200UK is painfully short, that said.

Overall winner: Shark CH950UKT?

The CH950UKT is cheaper, more powerful, deals with pet hair and has a greater capacity than the WV200UK. Yes it’s bigger and bulkier, but this budget vac is worth the money.
