Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeezermd Love my vacuum!
I have had my Hoover Wind Tunnel bagged vacuum for many years. I love it so much that when the motor died, I replaced the motor and am still vacuuming with it! It is not this newer version, but one from quite a few years ago. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PowerDee Hoover Cannisters Rock!!
I would recommend this vacuum cleaner.
This Hoover Anniversary, cannister-style makes it so much easier to handle, and besides that, the vacuum head has its own power source so it can pull itself. Plus adjustable power switch for different uses and easily accessible vacuum tips/brushes...Awesome!
Another sweet side point...it has an automatic, retractable powercord (25' long)! Just push the button on the body and in goes the cord to any length you wish. Yay, no more running over the cord.
The only thing that I found might be a problem is that I have a hard time locating the HEPA replacement bags (a bit pricey).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Frosty53 Very disappointed
Bought this vacuum about 3-4 months ago strictly on reviews which were mostly positive. I am VERY disappointed in this product. It is large, very cumbersome & difficult to use; the floor brush came with small wheels (?), which I eventually had to remove in order to get the brush to go where I wanted it to; the canister slams into walls & woodwork, the hose is continually twisting so I have to manually straighten it out; the floor tools stick to the tubing, making it difficult to remove and the whole thing is not very versatile & is very awkward. I really dislike it. I would not recommend it to anyone. The little Eureka canister it replaced was much more useful & easier to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by avidonlineshopper Absolutely the best canister sweeper
I had an upright and hated it - too heavy and awkward to handle. And after only 2 years the motor burned out. No - it was not a Hoover. After doing research, this sweeper was recommended as one of the best. IT IS. Very light weight and easy to handle; gets under furniture easily, and does a super job cleaning both carpet and tile floors.
The price at Home Deport was $50 less than what Best Buy wanted - another selling point. And I had the sweeper put on hold for pickup at Home Depot by shopping on line.
You can't go wrong with this sweeper and Home Depot. It truly is a great product at a great price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by renegade Worked great ane day & no power the time.
I have had this vacuum for less than 2 years with no major issue. It worked find the a couple days prior and now for some reason it won't power up or start at all. After reading major of the reviews - I would say it not worth taking in for repairs because its most likely the circuit board with the fuse.
Prior to this major issue of not starting - it worked great removing pet hair from the carpet which was the main reason I purchased it. But I didn't like the attachment provided for the hardwood floor. I had adapted another attachment from a previous vacuum cleaner clean the hardwood floors.
After reading other reviews and it all of sudden for even turn on - I won't recommend this vacuum cleaner

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by smee very good vacuum
when my kenmore died, i wanted something at least as good as that was, which was excellent for 20 years. i checked reviews & ratings all over the web & decided on the Hoover WindTunnel. It's been very good on my thick pile area rugs & floats easily to hardwood & still picks up dust & particles well. I love how all 4 wheels can change direction independently; much easier to swivel & turn around. The retractable wand is great for storing is smaller spaces. It's reasonably priced for the quality. The attachments are very handy. My only complaint is I wish the container was larger.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Wind Tunnel Is a Breeze for Handicapped Users
Due to its lightweight design and telescoping wand, the Hoover Anniversary Wind Tunnel Vacuum makes vacumming from my wheel chair super simple.
The wheeled canister is very easy to pull along behind my wheel chair. In addition to ease of use, it does a great job.
We have four house dogs and enough loose dog hair to knit a new dog every day. My new vacuum does a great job of removing dog hair on my wood floors, upholostered furniture, and especially on my throw rugs. It is surprisingly powerful for such a small machine. I would definitely recommend it as a great value for a very reasonable price.
