    Works excellent on hardwood or tile floors. It definitely collects the dirt / dust! What a deal (Deal of the Day)...$82 instead of $179!

    Damages hard floors. Please be aware!

    Posted .

    This vacuum got some stellar reviews. I mean, just look at the 5 star ratings. That's why I decided to purchase this unit. I am not a disgruntled person posting a negative review for the heck of it. I got this machine home and it damaged my hardwood floors right out of the box. I'm not posting this review about the motor, the suction power or overall performance. This review is only for people that are buying this unit to use on hard wood or tile floors. The bottom of the unit has two sturdy rubber wheels, but there are also two small hard plastic wheels on the under side. they rake across the floor when the unit is in use. Not only that, but the only thing keeping the whole thing from dragging directly onto the floor are teeny, tiny little bristles on the border of the unit. These might as well be for decoration. You can literally hear the dragging plastic across the floor when you roll it. This is a real issue. It scratched my wood floors, and I just paid over 18k for them. I'm posting this review for people with hard floors. If you do go ahead and purchase this machine, please inspect the bottom of your vacuum before you use it. You'll see and hear what I'm talking about. I did not get a lemon, this is a design flaw that can really cause damage. I've posted a photo in the customer photos section of this item, so that you can see what I'm talking about. I'm contacting Hoover to see if they'll pay for my damaged floor, but I doubt I'll have any luck. If you're just using this for carpet, you'll probably be fine. Be careful otherwise. Happy shopping.

    We've used this for over a year now and are extremely happy with it. It is great foe touch-ups on carpets but we do use a larger vacuum for deeper cleaning. However, it is our go-to for the bare hall and kitchen. We no longer use a broom. It cleans bare floors completely and is quick and easy to use. Battery life is excellent and charging is simple.

    Used to have a prior version (I believe it was the same company), that required to plug in to recharge after every use. The already limited battery life continued to diminish until it was useless since the battery could not be replaced. What an environmental waste. This vacuum comes with an easily removable battery that charges on a separate charger. No need to find a location to store the vacuum near an outlet anymore. Simple, but smart. And the battery lasts longer than prior versions. The vacuum works well on our tile and Pergo floor. Picks up most things with one or two passses. Have not used it on carpet. Although we don't really need it for our size floors, I would recommend buying a 2nd battery so you can swap it out to finish a bigger job. So far, this was a great purchase, especially on a daily deal.

    Best stick vacuum out there for its size.

    My mom was the first to purchase one of these vacuums. I came home from vacation and went and bought one because it's so easy and convenient. A lot of restaurants use this same one. I now purchased one for my daughter for her new home. Pluses, it has no cord, no batteries, no bags and cleans over carpet, tile and wood floors. I have been a owner of orecks over the past 25 years and still love my oreck but this is so low maintance and not dragging a cord around the house. There is a rechargeable battery pack and that no hassle. This vacuum I would 100% recommend to the elderly because of the light weight, easy to manage and does not take up space so you can park it anywhere you would have your broom and dustpan. Go to Best Buy and price match with Amazon or another website they price match with and its a win win for you wallet and your home.

    Super Satisfied in Hays, KS!!

    Posted .

    We've had hardwood floors for years and were always looking for a better, easier way to keep them clean. When we recently moved, I threw out 5 or more corded and cordless "multi-purpose" vaccuums because they all had downfalls. Poor suction, attached lint cloths, poor battery life, and just overall poor performance left us needing to go ahead and sweep the old fashioned way even after using them. We had pretty much resigned ourselves to the fact that the old school broom and dust pan were going to be the only tools that would accomplish what we wanted. We were over at our neighbors house one night and we got to talking about keeping floors clean and they had been using the Linx and they loved it. We decided that we would give technology one last opportunity to show us that it could perform better and easier than using the broom and pan method. We ordered and received it in a few days. It was very simple to put together, needing only a phillips head screwdriver to attach the handle. The first use was very impressive! We charged the battery and the Linx picked up everything in its path, easily transitioning from hardwood floors to carpet, picking up the good ole wind blown Kansas dust and dirt. We have pets and it also does an EXCELLENT job of picking up pet hair from carpet, rugs and hardwood floors. The battery life is satisfactory for what we need it for, and lasts much longer than the other types that we have used in the past. There is no let-down on the battery operation either. It runs full speed until the battery is run down, continuing to clean at 100% through the entire cycle. Simply pop the battery out and onto the charger and it is ready for the next round in a few hours. We went ahead and purchased a second battery to have on hand in case we needed it to finish the job, but have yet to have to switch them out mid-job. The bagless feature of trapping the dirt and hair is great and is easy to dump when the job is complete. It also allows you to see what you've picked up. Overall, this by far is the BEST cordless vaccuum we have used and it does a GREAT job! After going through so many cheaper devices, I only wish that we would have found this one first, rather than last! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for areas with hardwood floors and tile, and areas that transition from hardwood floors to carpet! A great daily cleaning tool! Thanks to our neighbors and to Hoover! MT Rocks!

    Setting the record straight on battery life

    Posted .

    I had been eyeing the vacuum for quite some time but continued to hold off because of the price. Needless to say I took the plunge. Overall I'm satisfied and recommend the product. HOWEVER, there are conflicting posts with regard to battery life. Some people claim the battery lasts for hours. Others state their disappointment because they only get 10-15 minutes of useage on a charge. I ended up being the latter so I decided to contact the manufacturer. Below is Hoover's response. Thank you for your recent email. You can expect the Hoover Platinum Collection Stick Vac with LiNX Battery, Model #BH50010, to have "Fade Free" power during an operation/run time of approximately 11-12 minutes. The run time will vary slightly depending on whether or not the agitator brush roll is engaged or turned off. The LiNX Battery is an 18-Volt Lithium Ion Battery which will recharge in approximately 2-3 hours and can be recharged approximately 100,000 times over the life of the battery. You can tell when the battery is fully charged when the blue light on the charger pulses. The LiNX Battery and charger have a two year warranty for manufacturing defects and your Hoover Platinum Collection Stick Vac has a six year warranty for manufacturing defects.. The LiNX Battery also operates the Hoover Platinum Collection Hand Vac. I cannot speak to how anyone is getting (significantly) longer battery life than what the manufacturer states. I do hope though that Hoover’s response above does set the record straight for future purchasers.

    I love this vacuum. It works on hard floors, small rugs, and carpet- and it’s cordless! The only negative is that the charger does not always charge properly. I reset it once with guidance from Hoover customer service, and now I just unplug it and plug it back in every time I use it which seems to do the trick. I really hope the vacuum itself keeps functioning because it is the best.

    Probably the best cordless vac available

    |

    Posted .

    I bought the Linx to replace a corded stick vac, which was loud and needed to be re-plugged into several different outlets in order to vac all our hard floors. The Linx is powerful for a cordless vac and does a great job on the hard surfaces. Does a great job along the edges. It also does a wonderful job on carpet and rugs, something that my old stick vac did poorly. This is the ideal vac to use between uses of my big, heavy Dyson. The Linx is so light and easy to use I actually look for excuses to use it. The battery will provide about 12-15 minutes of power but because the battery is Li-ion, you get full power for the whole duration. I paid $160 for this on sale and that's expensive if you consider it to be a glorified stick vac. However, it's reasonably priced if you look at it as being a compact Hoover Windtunnel, which it actually is. The powered rotating brush can be switched off for cleaning hard surfaces, which is nice and which also marginally increases battery life. Be aware that this unit accommodates no accessories ie; wands, crevice tools, etc. so you'll not be using it to get that spider on the wall. It's an upright cleaner only. Won't do stairs. The Linx does a really good job at what it was designed to do. I've used mine twice already today.

    Wow. What a great purchase, for the price it was. It was instantly evident while assembling that the components-quality weren't "skimped" on; things felt sturdy and snapped into places with a satisfying snap that doesn't feel cheap. This is comparing my experience with one of the super-expensive Dyson stick vacuums--I found it literally offensive how cheap and plasticy that thing feels and after a $300 price tag! This Hoover Linx is super light-weight, but doesn't feel to be as a result of shortcuts in the manufacturing process and materials used. And the included rechargeable Li-ion battery life is absolutely amazing. Especially compared to that same Dyson one.

    Excellent vacuum. I have two. I have one for my home and one for my beach house. I gave one to my son-in-law for Christmas because, he loved my it so much. After I made the on-line purchase, I went back on-line for find an extra battery for it. I saw that Best Buy had put the vacuum on sale. I went over to the store and presented my paperwork. They could not have been more accommodating. They credited my purchase and actually it gave me enough money to buy the battery.

    Awesome little vacuum!

    This is the best little vacuum ever! I have had several little vacs and I have never been satisfied. Either they weren't powerful enough, too big, too little or scattered all the dirt from the exhaust fan on the side before I could vacuum it. This one's perfect. I researched it and Consumer Reports rated it very high. It has great power, settings for bare floors and carpet, it's not too loud and the canister is super easy to empty. The battery lasts a long time. I have a puppy who makes lots of messes and I used it too many times to count before I had to recharge it. Oh, it has a light that tells you the battery life when you turn on the power. Also, and this is probably one of the greatest selling points, The battery comes out of the vac and recharges in a small charger. You don't have to plug in the whole vacuum!

    best vacuum ever for hardwood floors

    |
    |
    Posted .

    i'm typically not a person to get excited about vacuum cleaners, much less cleaning, but having a coordless vacuum makes a HUGE difference in doing cleaning chores. i specifically sought out to get an upright with a lithium ion battery since it gives the best power throughout the life of the charge, and the LiNX is absolutely perfect for hardwood floors. i actually enjoy vacuuming now because it's so easy to go from room to room without having to plug/unplug. i know it sounds like a small thing, but it makes a big difference. also, while this is another small thing, the way the vacuum moves across the floor feels quite nice. i think the folks at hoover really thought this design through. additionally, the fact that the off/on/brush button is all on the handle is a nice touch - most vacuums have the brush feature on the bottom of the stick, which is kind of a pain. the battery lasts about 20-25 minutes of continuous use before it dies out. and because it's a lithium ion, it tends to give full power up to the last minute. anyway, if you have hardwood floors, this is an absolutely must. i don't know how well it works on carpet, though, so check out other reviews if that is what it'll be mainly used for.

    Works well for quick messes around the house. We have mostly all laminate floors or tile with a few rugs throughout the house. For pets we own German Shedder and doberman so this bad boy has seen its share of hair. This vac does well for its intended purpose, we have a much nicer vac that involves filling it with water for use but its such a pain to break out that the Hoover Linx winds up being our go too way more often. Easy to take apart and clean and plenty of peace of mind with geek squad protection. $99 deal of the day!

    The hoover cordless vacuum is a Good little unit. I had one for the last 8 years. They only last about 2 years for me. But I use it almost every other day. So it’s a good idea to get a warranty. The battery last about 15 minutes. It’s great for doing a quick pick up of hair and dirt. I usually use it before I use my regular vacuum. It will pick up most of the top hair from my cats and some dirt dust. It helps my regular vacuum bag not to fill up as fast. I was lucky and found it on sale for $99 after I bought it for $150. So I went back and got $50 credit. It’s Worth giving it a try.

    I have owned this unit for 5 years, yes 5 years, and it is still going strong. I haven't noticed any loss of power or battery length. It still picks up as good today as the day I bought it. I can clean all the hardwoods and tile in my house on one battery. I like how light it is. The only knock on it is that sometimes the canister comes off if I accidentally hit something, like a chair or stool, and it makes a terrible screeching. It never really feels like it completely locks in. Other than that, I love this thing. It has paid for itself twice over. It doesn't have attachments, but I knew that and I didn't need them. I have two dogs, and I needed to get the hair up, and it does that very well.

    Well designed with lots of power

    I've tried a lot of stick vacs over the years but this one was a really pleasant surprise. To start with, the rear wheels and the front rollers are rubber, so they don't mar the floor. There is also a rubber bumper that helps to keep from crashing into furniture legs. It's light weight and easy to maneuver. The noise level is quite low compared to all the other vacs I've used. I don't have a huge house but the battery life seems to be really good. I can usually get two or three sessions out of one charge. The switch is very conveniently located and allows you to switch from bare floors to carpet almost without thinking about it. The suction is really strong and picks up pretty much anything on the first pass. Edge suction is is good too and actually works (unlike a lot of others that claim to have this feature). I really like the fact that the battery is removable and you can set up the charger wherever it's the easiest for you. I don't have power outlets in my closets and charging many other brands forces you to charge their vacuums in some sort of cradle. This sounds like a nice feature, and if your closets have power outlets, then you may like that. For the rest of us, it's just easier to pop out the battery and slide it into the charger. Really happy with the performance and all the subtle design features of this vacuum.

    Awesome light-weight vacuum that does an excellent job. I purchased this to use in my RV when camping and it has been excellent in picking up all the dirt that we drag into the RV. This would also be great to do quick jobs around the house. It is lightweight enough to do stairs and is a life-saver for quick jobs. I purchased on the deal of the day but would have been happy to pay full price given how well it has worked.

    I LOVE this little vacum!!! It's light, easy, efficient. Easy to grab and run through the middle, or. vacum the whole place. It's so light, I bought another one for my 82 year old mother who has back problems and she has not used her other full-size vacuum sense. She loves it too! And it does not make her back hurt. The thing actually works, as some other small type vacuums do not have the suction that this one does. I like that has a floor and a rug feature as I don't have a lot of rugs and only use that part in some rooms, and it works equally well on rugs. If this thing ever wears out, I'll buy another one just like it ! On a scale of 1 to 10, I write this one a 10.
