    I live in a 1 bedroom, fully carpeted apartment with a Lab/Pit bull mix who sheds year round, and I myself have long hair; my old vacuum just couldn't take it anymore. no matter how often i took it apart and cleaned it, it just wasn't doing the job. I found this Hoover vacuum on sale for under $100 and took the plunge and splurged. I am so glad I did. This vacuum has serious suction. it has adjustable floor settings-bare floor and 4 carpet settings. the bare floor and low carpet settings are insanely strong. i started out on mid level carpet (3) but switched it down to 2 just to see and it was like I deep cleaned the carpet! the attached picture shows how much the vacuum picked up in just my living room, and I had vacuumed 2 days earlier with the old one. The powerful suction makes the vacuum feel heavy but it isn't unwieldy. the power pet hair attachment is like a vacuum on steroids and I was able to pull tons of dog hair out of the pet beds and the couches. There are 2 negatives: the dirt cup empties at the bottom and the conical wind tunnel shape makes it really hard to get clumps of pet hair out without banging it against the garbage can or sticking your hand in. the hose for the hand tool is very stiff and I'm hoping it will loosen up with use.

    AMAZING Vacuum

    I just adopted a great pyrenees and they shed A LOT. All my old vacuum did was push the hair around on the floor so I decided it was time for a new vacuum. After looking at various vacuums I almost ended up just buying a cheap one at Wal-Mart because I didn't expect one within my price range(less than $100) would work much better than one around $50-$60. Boy was I wrong!! I decided to invest in this one with high hopes because of the great reviews that I read and it has greatly exceeded my expectations. You can actually feel the suction power as you're pushing it and it gets the long dog hair out of the carpet and off of the sofa with ease! The suction is so powerful though it is a little bit of a forearm work out maneuvering it but I don't mind! If it can maintain this level of suction throughout it's life span I will buy this particular vacuum again and again until they no longer make them. If you're even the least bit hesitant, I say go for it and try it! You will not regret it. Attached is a picture of how much stuff it got off of my living room floor in one use, AFTER first going over it with my old vacuum.

    I read a lot of reviews before this purchase. I didn't want to spend a lot but wanted something that still did the job well. This vacuum is actually pretty amazing. The suction is crazy good! I really like that all the attachments are stored right on the vacuum and so are easy to access and attach and work wonderfully. Other reviewers said it was loud but I do not find it louder than any other vacuum I've used or had in the past - the noise is normal. I also like that it's bagless and easy to empty. Some reviewers said you had to empty it often but that hasn't been the case for me. Granted I'm in a small one bedroom, but hadn't vacuumed in weeks and got my whole apartment clean only needing to empty it when I was completely done - and even then I probably could have waited. The only cons I would say are that 1) it does feel just a tad heavy to push but no that big a deal to me and 2) that the accordion hose the attachments latch onto, while it does stretch, it requires a little extra strength to pull on it if you want to stretch it long when you're reaching up high or farther behind furniture, but again it's not a huge negative for me. The pros far outweigh the cons and I'm really happy with my purchase.

    I ordered this vacuum after my Dyson died. Thankfully i used bestbuy rewards making it about $30 bucks. I have 4 dogs (3 are corgis) and 1 cat, so i put the term 'pet' to the test. Here's my breakdown: Pros: The rotating brush attachment actuality works, and works well; unlike the attachment on every other vacuum îve had. The vacuum itself has a lot of suction, so much that i ran over the power cord once while vacuuming, and it chewed the cord up pretty good. (Is this a pro?) A little electrical tape and it's fine. Cons No cord storage release. You know that little piece of ancient technology - the one that when you wrap the cord up after use, all u have to do to release it is turn the little hook? This one is fixed, it doesnt turn, leaving you to unwind the cord like an animal. I never realized how much i would miss that simple feature. The canister release sucks. First of all, the release button is toward the bottom of the canister, and for me, when you do open the bottom, the contents (copious amounts of dog hair) doesn't release. I have to twist the clear part off of the top to get the contents to dump out, then reassemble it -its a whole to-do. Poor design for a 'pet' vacuum. Otherwise it's an 'ok' vacuum. I would probably spend a little extra money and get the next level up.

    A cat hair eating beast!

    We LOVE this vacuum! We have 2 cats who love to shed all over the house. I hate cat hair and dander, but love the cats. We got this model and have been amazed how much it picks up! We ran it the first time and it was nearly half-full with dust and hair that I didn't even know we had! My wife likes that it has an adjustable level so that she can use it on both the carpets in the house and the vinyl in the kitchen and bathrooms. It also has nice attachments for cleaning the bedding and couches after the cats sleep on them. I am glad we got this unit that does not have the retractable cord. First, because I am lazy and I don't have to empty this one as often because the dirt container is bigger because it doesn't need the room for the cord retraction part. Second, I've know a few people who had vacuums with retractable cords. While those units are easier to put away without winding the cord, they inevitably broke within a year or two (usually right after the warranty expired). The manual cord is a little more work, but lasts alot longer if you take care of it. This is definitely a light vacuum that can do some serious work!

    Powerful vacuum at a great price

    I purchased this Hoover as a replacement for a problematic Bissell that required constant adjustment related to the pulley for the brush. As the reviews on Best Buy were positive, I decided to give Hoover a chance. The larger capacity of the bin allows the dirtiest of rooms to be tacked with less time spent emptying what this beast is able to pick up. The five levels of adjustment for floor/carpet height are simple and intuitive to use. The lighter weight of this vacuum compared to competing units is a benefit if you'll need to clean multiple floors. The only minor quibble I have with this model relates to the power cord. While length is ample, the placement in relation to the back of the vacuum is sub-optimal. You'll constantly need to be aware of where it's lying in relation to the path that you're cleaning. Otherwise, you'll risk tangling the cord and/or running over it. This is certainly a stronger bargain/value compared to vacuums costing at least twice as much. Highly recommended!

    Great Vacuum, best price

    This vacuum is awesome, It has incredible pick up power and comes with all the attachments you could ever need, it is completely wife approved, we actually tested by vacuuming with our previous one and then re-vacuuming with the new one and there was so much debris that was removed with this new model that our past vacuum was missing, even sand from the beach this past summer that we didn't even know was embedded in the carpeted floor! there is only one small drawback to this model, the accessory hose has high tension on it so it constantly wants to retract rather than be fully extended and vacuuming up high or at a distance from the machine is tedious, you constantly need to move the vacuum closer to what you're vacuuming and if you're trying to use the accessory hose on the walls or ceiling/ceiling fan it's difficult at times because it doesn't want to stretch out fully and allow you to do so

    Just OK

    This vacuum appeared to have so many great features. The extra large canister and the easy empty dust bin through the bottom with just the touch of the button were so appealing. The bad news..the canister stops picking up and "swirling" the debris at about the 1/4 mark ,which requires the canister to be emptied to continue picking anything up from the carpet. I emptied the canister 7-8 times just vacuuming my living room, so the extra large canister is useless, in my opinion. The dust, pet hair, will not come out of the bottom of the canister. I had to beat it on the side of the waste bin or pull it out by hand. This defeats the purpose of the easy empty canister. The suction is just OK and the tools are nothing special. The flexible vacuum tube is short, it's almost impossible to do stairs or get close enough to furniture for vacuuming without the vacuum tipping over. This is the first Hoover I have purchased after becoming disenchanted with Bissell. I guess my next purchase will be a Shark Pro or a Dyson. This vacuum is better than hand sweeping with a broom, but not by much.
