Surprised by this vacuum cleaner!
Posted by: Glasscitygirl from: Toledo, Ohio on
I read all the reviews and was hesitant to purchase such an expensive vacuum cleaner but one of the things I needed was something that was good at picking up dog hair on both carpeted and hardwood floors. I decided to try this since it got no bad reviews and WOW! I have never ever had a vacuum cleaner that had such suction and power. I was so amazed at how easily it moved due to the "self-propelled" mechanism.
The only improvement would be to have some attachments on board so when you are vacuuming a room you could quickly do corners, etc., but then it probably would take away from the suction power! The little vacuum is very convenient for little jobs and it will work for when I need the attachments.
One thing that I never saw in any of the reviews I read is that the vacuum cleaner bags are self-sealing. That means that when you remove them from the vacuum cleaner, they automatically seal so no dust or particles escape into the air. I always hated that when I had to re-vacuum after removing a bag. The bags are very thick and high quality so it's no wonder they are expensive.
If you are debating about this one and you're on the edge, just take the plunge. You won't be disappointed!

Best Vacuum Cleaner for the Money
Posted by: Thebigalp from: Kennesaw, GA on
I previously owned a Dyson and a Kirby. This vacuum cleaner is, by far, the best vacuum cleaner I have ever owned. It is far superior to the Dyson. It is lightweight and very powerful. I am extremely happy with this product!

Lives up to the hype
Posted by: BestBuyer46 from: Roseville, CA on
I bought this vacuum pair based on the reviews. Had I simply been browsing in the store, I likely would have chosen something else because for the price, it doesn't look like you're getting much. I am so glad I went against my instincts and listened to what others have said about this unit. It's awesome! It leaves the carpet looking like it's just been steam cleaned, not merely vacuumed. (No, it won't remove stains. It just really picks up the nap and makes the capret look new.)
This is a case of simpler being better. I work for another retailer that sells Dyson, Electrolux, Hoover, Eureka, and Oreck. I have seen that the units that get returned most often are the ones with too many bells and whistles and gimmicks. This set just does what it is supposed to do: vacuum carpets really well.
The canister is super lightweight too, but has awesome suction. My only knock on it is I wish it had a little longer hose to make it more suitable for cleaning the car. But for inside the house, it's great. The extending tube locks at any length you choose and works great for hard floors and ceiling fans and stuff like that. The tools are nothing to get excited about, but do the job. I stopped at a local vacuum store and picked up a dusting brush with longer, softer bristles than the one supplied so that I could vacuum electronics without scratching up the plastics. ($7)
Points that I would counter from other reviews:
1. "The hose falls out of the canister easily."
No, it does not. Twist the hose to lock it in place, and then it's acutally kind of hard to remove.
2. "The canister is super loud."
No, it's not. Of course this is subjective, but to me, it's much quieter than vacuums I've had in the past.
3. "The bags are very expensive and hard to find."
The bags can be tricky to find in stores, but are readily available online. They're about $5 each, but to me that's not bad at all when you consider they are really big bags, you're getting HEPA filtration and never have to replace a seperate HEPA filter unit (which really can be pricey), and they have an automatic "trap door" that slides closed when you remove the bag so dust doesn't go flying everywhere. Value.
For inside the house, this is the best vacuum solution I've owned, and even though I was really reluctant to spend $300 for this, I have no regrets.

I can't wait to vacuum!
Posted by: 66babe from: Mesa, AZ on
I love my Hoover Plantinum Lightweight Vacuum. I am not kidding when I say - " I can't wait to vacuum"!. It is so easy to make my carpet look great. The vacuum is self propelled, and as long as I am moving forward - "it is literally vacuuming itself".
I can really tell how worthless my old vacuum was. When I vacuum, the suction is so strong, I can feel the carpet lifting away from the pad. When I am finished, you can see the carpet pile stands up!
And on a Hot sumer day, I can leave the drapes closed - the light on my vacuum is bright enough to see where to vacuum.
"What took me so long to replace my old vacuum ?"

Good vacume for dog hair.
Posted by: TX29 from: Houston, TX on
I have two Siberian Huskies so I needed a vacuum capable of picking up a ton of dog hair. So far this vacuum has exceeded my expectations. It has a tremendous amount of power and is very light and easy to use. Works great on wood, tile, and carpet. The only downside is the lack of attachments to the vacuum. It comes with a smaller separate vacuum pack but it is a pain to have to switch them out just to get under the furniture.

You can tell this is a quality product
Posted by: Surfwing from: Prior Lake, MN on
Excellent machines - both the upright and the hand device are excellent products that work well - you can certainly feel the quality when using them. We have had several vacuums over the last 15 years and the suction of of this upright is very good.

Great vacuum purchase!
Posted by: MGSfan from: Charleston, WV on
I was looking to go back to a bagged vacuum because I was tired of the extra maintainance my bagless vacuum required (filters, cleaning) all the time. I have owned bagged Hoovers in the past and trust the name. When shopping for appliances I always look to Best Buy first and saw the Hoover Platinum Collection. I'm so pleased! Not only did I get an upright vacuum that really cleans my carpets and is easy to handle, I also got a handy porable canister vacuum! The canister vacuum comes with a hose, wand, attachments and a shoulder strap! I cac clean anywhere from my ceilings to my baseboards without killing my back! Both vacuums come with generously long cords that let me plug in one room and clean my entire two bedroom apartment with out moving the plug! I also loved Best Buy's price!

I needed a vaccum so that my kids can also use it, so I needed really light weight. This one is cool, very light, easy to operate, excellent results in cleaning, look is very modern, hose vaccum is separate. Both units work great. The 2nd unit, saves time when you are cleaning stairs. You do not get tired as it is light. The wire is long , so you can go every where. I do not know why this was not displayed in show room, I had to oder it. I had read good reviews, so far after 2 months, I still feel much better, meeting the expectations.

I love the Hoover-Platinum. 2nd one I have owned. Just gave the first away to my Mom and she loves it! Also I am a bag girl. I do not like the bagless sweeper.

For those of you who need a review to consider buying this, here it is:
I have been using this vacuum for about a month now and absolutely love it. The suction is great.....no complaints there. Sorry I waited so long to buy it. I used to have a Dyson, but it was so heavy, and I always had to dump the canister which would cause the dust to go back into the air, and it would not reach under things due to its size. I use this vac almost everyday due to 3 cats and 1 dog, and am just amazed by how well it picks up all the hair. Sure, you have to buy bags, but at least you won't get all the dust flying around as you would with the bagless vacs.
I got the canister vac with this, but really don't use it unless doing under cushions. I have had no problems with this vacuum picking up all the dirt, etc. along the bottom of the baseboads.....it gets it all.
