    Works Just Like a Vacuum

    I am happy with this purchase. This vacuum gets the job done. When I first used it it snagged my entry carpet by my door which caused the rollers to stop moving. I figured it must be the belt. Thought about returning it but then I decided to remove the four top screws and sure enought the belt had come off. I put the belt back on which was simple enough and after re-assembling it it works great. I was surprised that it came off that easy as my old Eureka would just keep on running until you pulled the carpet back out. I will say that I am a little more careful around my entry carpets but the belt has not come off since and it works great. This vacuum is not quite as large as some but that was what I wanted as it makes it easier to go under chairs and tables. It will also lay almost flat to the ground and still vaccum if you have tight spots. The on/off switch is about mid-way down the handle which is a little different. This unit has one re-usable filter on the top which is nice. My old Eureka had 3 filters that I had to replace. I easily spent as much on those filters over the years as I did for this new vacuum. NO MORE FILTERS TO BUY. I didn't spend much more than $100.00 for this vacuum. I think it is a great deal and I am please with my purchase.

    Functionality wise its ok & powerfull

    I have no major complaint, vaccum is a vaccum cleaner, it does what its suppose to do. It good powerfull unit. PROBLEM: It has the most annoying place for power button, you vaccumed something or you want to immediately switch it off, the power button is not something you can reach without looking at it, you have kind of fiddle around with vaccum cleaner to find where it is. I had bissel earlier and power button was right on the side and very easily ON/OFF. That is only reason I give it 4 star & not 5 star Yes its heavy, but I beleive unless its heavy it wont wipe clean your area (carpet of wood) very efficiently, I have another light vaccum cleaner for daily use , I cant think of using that to vaccum the whole house :) ..... it cant .... I dont have to carry it around at same level, it has wheels so I drag it. Yes I have to lift is on stairs but again its not kind of super duper heavy ... its ok ... no biggie ...

    Probably best $100 vacuum on their shelf

    This is kind of a bulky vacuum. So it would be a pain to clean stairs and move it around if you have a big house and weak little trex arms. Fortunately I live in a 1000sq ft apartment and my arms are strong like ox. I had a Dyson before and it was only good for maneuverability. The hose extended really well and turned like a f1 racer. But this one is old fashion and the hose BLOWS but it works. Another thing I don't like is when you use the hose the spinners don't stop. A good vacuum will turn it off cause it can mess up your carpet. I just changed the setting to high carpet. But it has a WASHABLE hepa filter and dirt catcher that dumped from the bottom like a Dyson. That's all I needed cause I'm no pretty princess. DON'T GO CHEAPER the red devil blows! Oh and this has a retractable cord something the Dyson DOESNT have! I'm dreading the day it breaks... but it works well now! hehehe

    This replaced our aging Dyson of 13 yrs. All in all a really good vacuum. Suction is good, on-board tools are handy, auto cord real is a neat feature and it just works well. One thing that is a bit frustrating is the way the canister is designed. It makes it very difficult to empty without making a mess. We have a golden retriever so we suck up a lot of hair. The canister will not empty on its own because of its design. The hair gets suck up inside the canister and I have to pull it out by hand which is messy. The only other thing is while the auto cord retract feature is super convenient the cord itself is too short. I feel like I have to use way more outlets with this vacuum compared to my last one to vacuum the same areas. Other than that's it has been great. For the price point would definitely recommend.

    I love this vac. This vac works better than the one I had before it and better than the one that my former spouse and I paid 1,500 for years ago. I think the suction is awesome for my carpet and also for hardwoods. I had one very similar to it that stopped working and this works even better than that model did. Best new thing this model has it that it works awesome on hardwoods right up to the wall! Love it. Loved the price. Later found a Bissell at Walmart for half the price but was so pleased with this ones suction, hardwood performance and the wall feature. Also, a friend who knew I needed a new vacuum bought me one for Christmas not knowing I just got one, but I liked this one too much so we got a refund on theirs. The only downside for me is the cord is shorter than my last one and I would like to be able to do the house without unplugging.

    I LOVE the cord wrapping mechanism! Just push a lever and the cord goes away. This vacuum picks up soooo much more than my robotic vacuum! and is very easy to manipulate around toys, furniture, etc. I'm so glad I decided on this one. I needed a vacuum that was quick to get out and put away, but effective on pet hair, and easy to manipulate around objects. I have a Rainbow for my deep cleaning moments but it takes too long to set up and put away when I need to just vacuum the pet hair up daily. I have a robotic vacuum for daily pet hair removal, but it takes a long time to get done and I have to pick up pet toys and other objects in the floor first. I have a handheld for my furniture but don't use for my floors obviously. This vacuum works well for my furniture too when using the tool.

    Considered buying a Dyson, because of all they hype about how good they are, but just couldn't bear the thought of spending that much money on one. This item was on sale, and had several good reviews, so I thought I'd give it a try. Easy to assemble right out of the box, basically 1 screw to tighten on the handle. Very good suction - almost too good - lifts smaller area rugs right off the floor. Had run an older vac over larger area rugs the day before - this thing picked up quite a bit more dirt and dust that was missed. Easy empty dust bin. Dusting attachment works great. I have mostly tile floors, with a few area rugs. I was able to get it on sale, plus used a reward zone certificate and a gift card to order online - picked up in store an hour later. Happy with my purchase.

    Great innexpensive vacuum

    This vacuum is great if you are looking for a cheap device to clean your floors. Short comings of this particular model are that you trade cord length for internal canister space. If you want to have a larger space and longer cord that doesn't wrap up automatically then go for that model. Other difference may be that it is easier to clean out as the canister is much larger and doesn't collect around filter as much. Can be difficult to clear out if you have large hands. Great buy non the less. Would buy again. I personally don't like to have to wrap up the cord after each use. Many models with slightly difference schemes of color should mean lots of spare parts on market for repair. Popular brand/make can find at most retailers.

    Great Vacuum For the Money

    The suction is incredible, however it has trouble picking up dirt at the baseboard and at the feet of furniture. I have to physically move the dirt to a more open area of the carpet. The combination of filters is wonderful, however I seem to have to dump the bin of fine particulates after a few uses. My jury is still out on how often I will have to change the heppa filer cartridge. When I orderd I didn't realize that it did not have a light, a feature of my old hoover that I miss. The retractable cord does not retract smoothy and I have a feeling that this wil be the first feature to stop workig. For the price paid, and the incredible suction I am completely satisfied with the product.

    I was both amazed and appalled (since the old vacuum had left so much behind) at how much dirt this vacuum sucked up the first time I used it, just two days after vacuuming the house with my old vacuum cleaner. It works great! All onboard tools work well, and are very convenient. I am so pleased to get such a great machine at a reasonable price. My only criticism is that the O ring isn't great. Fine particles get by the upper seal in the canister. Not a deal breaker, just takes an extra step in emptying to clean the machine, but you should be aware.

    We have had a previous hoover WindT unnel for about 10 years. The bag was starting to stink fast and the neck would not stay upright. This is a great update. The self winding cord is a great feature and the dual filter, 1 hepa bottom and 1 washable top there is a noticeable difference in air quality vs the old model. Just hoping it stands the test of time as well. The capacity is a little on the smaller side if you want it to be effective.You might have to dump it every room if you have pets. Tip Not only does the reservoir open on the bottom, you can twist it from the top if hair gets stuck that will help clear it.

    Bagless YES

    Okay so not a huge fan of bagless but we had an old dirt devil and when we got this vacuum home I ended up vacuuming the whole house I did not realize all the dust the old one was kicking out. Plus I have cats and you can just hear the litter being sucked up. And when you have to dump it still gets alittle messy because the fur gets stuck up in there but its SO much better then my old one. Also like the features auto wind up on the cord which is nice because then the hubby doesn't have an excuses he can just hit a button. And the top of the canister has an indicator when its starting getting to full of junk.

    I really like this vacuum because not only is a good starter vacuum, but it seemed to be better than I expected. With a 650 square ft house with two large dogs, two cats, and two humans, this vacuum had a lot of time to make up for that our old vacuum didn't do! The house looks better than ever when we use it; however my one complaint is that like with most bag less vacuums, the dust seems to come out of the sides a little bit. When I am done cleaning, i have to wipe down the outside near the bottom and top hose attachment to get the static electrified dirt and dust off of the outside.

    Nice and light, great suction. On board tools are great and easy to attach and use. The cord rewind is my favorite feature. The vacuum seems to have that overheating smell if used for any long period, it hasn't shut down.. Yet. The dirt canister needs to be emptied often, it is not that big, and if you have pet hair. it fills fast. I am happy with it so far, I hope it lasts. Going from a Kirby that weighed a million pounds, it is much nicer to use, and vacuums with almost the same suction as the Kirby does. : ) Nice to have an easy to use alternate for everyday stuff.

    Overall I'm very happy with my purchase of this Hoover vacuum cleaner. The number one thing that needs improvement is the hose. It's not long enough and is very stiff. Other than that I have enjoyed using it for the past month. It picks up stuff you didn't even know was on your floor and with two dogs and a cat that says a lot. The retractable cord is helpful and is plenty long, but my Mr. has doubts on how long it will last based on past experiences with professional retractable cords, time will tell. The other issue is the size of the base, it is bulky and can be tricky in small spaces.

    I bought this vacuum to replace an older one that just wasn't picking anything up anymore. This doesn't have all the features and accessories the more expensive models have, but it does a really good job on bare floors and carpet and that's all I really needed it for. The only negative things I can say is that the power cord (retractable) is about 6 feet shorter than my last model (non-retractable cord) and the "trap door" method of emptying the bag-less container is a little messy especially when emptying fine dirt and dust . All in all a very good, inexpensive vacuum.

    I have never purchased a high dollar vacuum. Friends that have have proven to me that the lesser expensive units do just as well, last, if you take care of them and keep them clean in and out. The Hoover has proven me correct. Does a very good job on bare floors and thick carpet. I only gave it four stars as the vacuum hose shrinks up considerably when using it with the attachments. But the filter which is really washable does a very good job of collecting the fine dust particles saving the heppa filter. Overall a good vacuum at a good price.

    We have not had the vacuum for very long but are pleased so far with its performance. It is easy to clean, and the rewind cord is great. Attachment tools have been impressive, as well. It is a bit heavy carrying up and down the steps. However, the handle does help with transporting it. The vacuum is relatively quiet but does require some exertion, as it does not glide as well as some other vacuums we tested. So far, it has done a nice job cleaning both carpet and hardwood floors.

    This vacuum is terrific on many surfaces. Better on carpeted stairs than previous vacuums I've used. Superior to windtunnel. The short hose is too short and this means dragging the whole unit around. Slightly higher priced model has longer hose. The detachable refuse cup is easy to dump and wipe clean. Reusable filters are ecofriendly. This is a much better than almost any vacuum I've owned. attachments stay put on clips. stair attachment is not so good, really noisey. Seems durable. Hope it lasts more than a year for the money and convenience.

    I bought this for my very elderly parents, who complained about the noise from their former Hoover upright (now toast.) So my mission was to find a budget-priced, quieter, all purpose home vacuum. This works well and has a good assortment of tools, unlike the Bissell I bought for myself. Those "pet hair" specialty vacs don't come with sensible tools for cleaning furniture, crevices, doorways, etc. This model is great for picking up pet hair and everything else, at a very reasonable price, and no more buying bags!
