Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by retired Best small canister vac
This canister vacuum is the best for small jobs such as stairs, furniture, and cars. It reaches very small spaces and has strong suction. It also has a long cord which helps in big rooms and the garage.

I like the performance of the vacuum but don't like the hose at all. I actually took the hose off of my old vacuum, which I have had since 1976, because it is much better. With the exception of the hose I am very pleased with the vacuum.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Piano Lady SMALL, BUT POWERFUL!
If I need a new vacuum, the only company I will consider is Hoover for my purchase- NOTHING can compare to a Hoover! I needed a small, but powerful, portable vacuum to use on my carpeted stairs and for upholstery (I have 5 cats). I was also looking for a small vacuum for quick clean-ups instead of using my big Hoover Wind Tunnel. I was anxious to use my new PortaPower on my two cloth covered recliners (one is covered in a suede-like material). I attached the rubber brush- not the bristle brush, to use on the chairs. It wasn't 5 minutes before I had both chairs immaculately cleaned! Not only did ALL the hair come off quickly and thoroughly, but the fabric on the chairs was even brighter as though they had been shampooed! The suction is powerful! For this kind of cleaning, I did not want to use the cloth bag because of the hair, so I used the option of the Disposable Bag Adapter set (paper bags). REMOVE THE CLOTH BAG before inserting the the Disposable Bag Adapter set; you use one or the other, but not both at the same time! *The Disposable Bag Adapter set is a separate purchase. The PortaPower Vacuum comes with a WIDE variety of attachments at no additional cost! Stay with Hoover products- you'll always have peace of mind using such an outstanding and reliable product...and NO regrets!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dogman As good as the original
Bought this to replace one we received 27 years ago that still works though the hose and plastic tubes broke. This one is more powerful and has worked very well in our home with lots of hardwood and dogs. It has a long cord and all the attachments we need for our floors. Tthe only downside is the hose is a bit funky, sort of slinky-like and i worry it will not hold up which is the only ding in quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jake A must have along with your upright carpet machine.
If you understand the shoulder strap concept this is a great machine. The strap and long power cord gives you flexibility to move around and get up and down ladders to get at those dust collection areas that are tough to access and no dragging around the motor that hangs up on furniture. (PORTABLE-POWER)
The wand extensions and brush heads lets you get to those ceiling fans and light fixture. I added a long (2 1/2"}, soft bristle brush to my setup and it really helps get into odd shaped items and shutters. Great for tile and hardwood floors and the attachments let you access areas around the refrigerator and washer/dryer. I have a bag less, power house, upright for the carpets and I use it's hose option to clean out the bag on my Hoover.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Caw Portable Vacuum
This is s fairly basic portable vac but has very good suction. I bought it for someone who has a small living space. I tried it out to clean my car. It is a bit bulky. The hose is not as flexible as I'd like it but the suction was very good. There is a motor smell when it's running, and not sure how this will be after several uses. The price is very reasonable.
