Wanted a powerful and light vacuum. This vacuum meets the bill and would recommend for any chore.

After much research, we settled upon the Hoover upright. We were originally looking at Dyson, but put off by the cost, even when heavily discounted. We liked this one because it's primarily meant for vacuuming carpet, yet has some on-board tools to get those areas not reachable by a typical upright motorized base. (We were not able to purchase two vacuums for the two separate needs.) We also liked the idea of not having to purchase vacuum bags, even if emptying the bin is a tad messy. It also has a fold-down handle - not necessary for us, but might prove useful for storage, or for transporting when the need arises. The reasonable price sealed the deal. One surprise upon receiving it was the sturdy short cord coming from the vacuum that is meant to connect to the longer extension cord. Nice feature. Less risk of damage to the cord that is attached internally (which we've had to repair on other vacuums), plus we can attach a longer extension if so desired. So far, the 30-foot cord has proved quite sufficient. It's also probably the quietest vacuum we've ever used, which is really nice for preserving one's hearing. And it has a headlamp. Nifty feature. One feature we do wish it had is the ability to turn off the beater while vacuuming bare floors. Otherwise, very happy with this vacuum.

Vacuum works well. Quiet mode is a plus. Review text needed to be longer so I added this sentence.

Nothing quiete about this vacuum and 20 minutes after flipping the switch it got louder. Performance was not what was expected per our custodian.

I have a cleaning company and am using this vacuum every day. Overall, the quality is good. It is lightweight and pushes easily (it is not self propelled but feels like it is). The dust cup is very easy to dump and I have noticed that you have to tap out the hepa filter very often or you will notice it in performance.
BIGGEST downfall is that the hose attachment is at the bottom of unit and is not super easy to detach from the vacuum. Also I like to have my attachments ready to put on the hose, but the way it is attached to the vacuum you have to take off the connecting pieces, pull the pieces apart and insert into the hose. This seems trivial but when you are doing this motion several times in a house cleaning like I am, this is a huge extra step that I am not happy about.
Overall , the vacuum does perform well (not so great on wood floors). I am still on the lookout for the perfect vacuum, this is not really the best....just mediocre.
