Upright vacuum cleaner for carpets and bare floors
Works on all flooring types and includes a hard floor attachment. Makes easy work of vacuuming chores with an included canister vacuum you can carry along with you as you work.
WindTunnel technology for better suction
The 3 separate air tunnels lift and remove dirt from carpets and prevent dirt from scattering back onto your clean floor.
Self-sealing HEPA bags for cleaner air
Upright and canister HEPA bags trap dust particles as fine as 0.3 microns and prevent it from escaping back into the air.
Convenient features for easier vacuuming
The Check Bag Indicator lets you know when the bag is full. Power button and dual speed cleaning controls are positioned in the handle so you don't have to reach down to power it on and off.
Portable canister included for hard surface and above-the-floor cleaning
The canister with carrying strap weighs less than 6 lbs. Use it with the hard floor attachment, or with the crevice tool and dusting brush for hard-to-reach areas.
Best Buy Customer Reviews
My wife loves her new vacuum and cannister!
Posted by: James from: Kokomo, IN on
We bought this because my wife's old Royal vacuum is so heavy and hard to use. It also needs some repair to the handle latch.
This Hoover is much easier to use and it does an even better job. We were concerned that there was no height adjustment, but this works equally well on carpet, hardwood, and vinyl floors.
The handle for stairs is especially useful, as we have two carpeted stairways. The vacuum is so light it isn't a problem.
In spite of the bad reviews on the canister, my wife loves it too. It is so very light it is easy to vacuum out the cars, and the long wands reach to the high ceiling on our back porch. It seems to have a lot of suction, and the noise is no worse than any other vacuum.
We definitely wanted a bag vacuum, as emptying a no-bag vacuum is a messy operation. With the bag, you just remove all the dirt and dust and it is already bagged. Also, the bag offers a very large HEPA filter that is changed automatically when you need to change it. In one step you neatly empty the dirt and replace the filter.

I've used this vacuum for the last month and it has been great. I'm used to bagless vacuums so having the bag is a nice treat - since I don't have to see the dirt all over again. It is a one pass vacuum and goes from carpets to bare floors without having to press any switches. The on/off switch is in a great location and the one 'switch' it has it to switch from low to high suction. I've never used the low function and I'm not really sure why it's there.
The separate canister is pretty good. It doesn't have as much suction as the upright but it gets the job done. Being able to put it on your shoulder and walk around the house (with the extra long cord) has been great. I do have two issues with this though; first, I miss having the ability to use the attachments during the course of my vacuuming as it is a whole separate appliance. With this, I'm less likely to do a complete job because once I'm done with vacuuming, I just want to be done. Second, the storage of it is awkward. It doesn't fit within itself at all.

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!

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!

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.

Best Vacuum Cleaner I ever had
Posted by: Olena from: on
I am so glad we found this product. Our previous bagless vacuum's motor broke and I learned that bagless doesn't mean best hard way. So, I wanted bagged vacuum this time, but I wanted to touch it before buying. Local vacuum store had price range $500 and up. I was not ready to pay this much. Luckily, I found reviews for this model and decided to go for it. I can't say enough how happy I'm with it! It's light, it has features of all those expensive staff I tried in store and saw on Youtube but for the right price. That is why I decided to write this review. It helped me, hope it'll help someone else!

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 ?"

Great for those not on the "bagless" bandwagon
Posted by: comfortablynick from: on
While vacuum shopping I was disappointed to see how many leading vacuums were bagless. These "filter bags" are not cheap but they're great for households with allergy issues (the bags on the upright even seal as they're being removed -- great design!). The upright is very light and the canister is great for getting in the crevasses and for use in the car. I even use it to suck the dirt out of my little Electrolux battery-operated hard floor vacuum, which allows me to benefit from its ease-of-use but not have to fling dirt and dust back into the air while emptying it. I wholeheartedly recommend these Hoovers!

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!

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.
