Great Vacuum for the money.
Very nice Vacuum---would recommend it to everyone-glides over my carpet with very little effort and is very good pickup on my pet hair.. Attachments work better then I thought they would and overall I am very pleased with my Purchase.

What a disappointment!

I had this vac for about 1 year (mild use once a week) and found it to be a major disappointment/ripoff. I really thought we had found a good one when I read the reviews on this website--boy was I wrong.

Keep in mind that this vac like many others is made of plastic--low quality at that. The first thing we noticed when using the height adjuster was that on the highest setting, that vac continued to leave track marks from the plastic brush guard. The first thing that went was the height adjustment knob. It didn't matter how careful you were but once the turning mechanism went--it was difficult to switch from carpet to non-carpet floors. The next thing to go was the Brushroll on/off pedal (floor-to-carpet setting) which allows you to turn off the brush. Something might have come off not allowing it to stay engaged once you pressed it. Another problem we found was that the suction power using hose (with tools) was much greater than the main suction hose for area carpet cleaning. The suction power (for regular vacuuming) was weak. The clip for the crevice tools do not hold the tools in place--have to tape to keep your tools from falling off. The housing doesn't seal very well--allowing dust to escape and accumulate on the casing. I give it a one-star because the bags are easy to load. We were happy with the previous version but could no longer find it.

Hoover Upright Bagged Vacuum

So far I have only vacuumed and like the suction and the quieter operation than others I tried. The more expensive model of the WindTunnel was quite a bit louder and suction did not appear to be better at the store. I look forward to trying out all of the accessories in the coming days but certainly believe I will be very pleased with this new purchase of Hoover. I would recommend to a friend or neighbor.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Value

We got this vacuum after having owned Hoovers in the past, but we were on a tight budget so rather than getting a top-of-the-line model we got this.  After seven months, it's had no problems whatsoever.  I really like the pedal to quickly and easily turn the spinning brush on and off- it's so much easier than trying to force a switch to move on the bottom of the vacuum and prevents dust from flying everywhere when you're using the hose.  Also its (lack of) weight is such a great thing for houses with winding staircases!  It's not the highest quality, but for the price it's amazing.

Reviews are pretty accurate

I just got this today and I pretty much agree with the other reviews.The suction is good however the tools fell off the first time I used it and I do find the hose short.It is not as user friendly as my other vacuum but I will get used to it. I guess if it takes care of the pet hair I will be happy.I'm just glad I got this on clearance and didn't have to pay full price.Then I may have been really disappointed. Time will tell.

Hoover is no Loser!

I must say, I am very impressed with this new hoover. I have owned this now for several months and I am so glad I bought this model. I looked at quite a few and went with this due to the bagged feature and the mentioned of minimizing of BLOWBACK while vacuuming. I loved the idea of filters that can be washed and re-used and the HEPA bags. This is lightweight and strong suction and does a fantastic job of cleaning my rugs. 8 foot hose and attachments are also GREAT. I actually don't cringe when grabbing this vacuum to do cleaning. Thanks Hoover for your continued excellence in manufacturing vacuums. I am sorry my last vacuum purchased before this one was a Bissell. I had Hoovers before the Bissell and went back to Hoover. Glad I did. I won't stray again!

Love this vacuum

Bought this item last week. Used it and reviewed it and this has great suction and is very easy to use and handle. Cleaned my house much easier and better than my old Eureka. I Highly recommend this. It also feels very strong and durable. Will surely look at another Hoover when the time comes.

Bought this off Amazon.com and I simply love it

I have been using this now for 4 months and it makes vacuuming the house so much easier. Cleans much better than my old vacuum and is lightweight and durable. I will never go back to a bagless. I love this vacuum. lengthy cord and easy to use attachments and plenty of hose length for cleaning the furniture, drapes and ceiling. If this keeps up and lasts long I will buy another hoover!

I've had this vacuum for a couple years and it's been great! No issues other than the common issue of paying for expensive bags but bag-less has it's cons as well.

manufacture defect or design defect ?

Smell burning rubber in first use. Open the bottom, the little wheel to turn-off the brush is melt and stuck. The little wheel should have been a metal, not plastic part. If Hoover could not make a lasting product, why people bother Hoover?

Hoover upright vacuum

Did a lot of research on this Hoover model. Have a Hoover Elite 20 years that I love. Thought it was time to have 2 vacuums one up and one downstairs. I am very disappointed with this new Hoover. The hose is very short. Only 1 wand and unable to purchase additional wands for this model. The cord wraps ackwardly around the hose. Still trying after 1 week to figure out how to attach the hand tool clip. Would not purchase this model again. Guess I have to use it for 20 years if it lasts before I purchase another vacuum.

The machine has out standing suction and I really like the foot release to do flat floors. I had an older machine that had an extra hose for cleaning furniture or what ever. But this is an excellent machine.

Huge Disappointment

I bought this vacuum cleaner approx 2 years ago.  I have always owned Hoover Vacuums...this is one that I have to say does not do a good job.  It is lightweight which I like.  This is the only feature I like about it.  I have 2 dogs, it does not have good suction, it has an odor about it that I don't like.  I change the bag often.  The hose is not long enough.

Hoover what is going on

I bought this about a month or so ago I am beginning to hate it. It is constantly clogging, especially where the hose goes into machine. I'm getting pretty good at taking the machine apart and unclogging. My question is why did Hoover attach the hose to the machine, my old Hoover, which lasted over 10 years; hose did not attach and did not clog, Over all the vacuum is great

Great Suction

I've used this unit about 6 mos now and it picks up lint, dog hair (long haired lab) very well. Wish bags had more capacity as it's always filling up with the hair and the very short extention hose is next to useless. Have to spend extra for ext. hose. If it wasn't for the dog hair filling it up I think regular households would be fine.

Works great. Nice features. Hose was slightly damaged (smashed in one area due to packaging). Does not seem to affect performance. Power cord is long. Only complaint, hose could be a little longer. Good value for the money.
