Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusyBee46 Pleased with purchase
The upright vac is easy to manage, lightweight and easy to carry. Rubber wheels make it easy and safe to maneuver from room to room on my bare floors. The length of cord allows for super efficiency.
I'm still getting used to how to handle the canister for extensive bare floors, how to hang the strap just right on my shoulder to avoid the heat which blows out both sides. Wishing the wand were about a foot longer and that the connection between wand and hose were clipped in some way, since it works its way loose as you vacuum.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SoftCarpetLady I liked it but had to return it
I liked this vacuum, especially the little canister. However, I have discovered my new wall-to-wall plush carpeting is both soft and deep. The brushes of the upright at the highest setting, still dug into the carpet so far that I could not move the vacuum. I thought something must have happened in shipping and took it to a vacuum repair shop, but he said this is how the vacuum is made. I did use the canister when I was thinking the upright could be repaired and it worked very well. I was sorry to have to return it. Even though I bought it over the internet, I could return it at the store and had no hassle with that. Home Depot has very good customer service regarding returns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vague Excellent set for our city apartment
We have wool wall-to-wall and sisal carpets; the upright works great on these without roughing-up the weave but gets up all the pet hair, grass, and deep, hereto-before unnoticed dirt and chaff therein. The canister is light and maneuverable and easily cleans our pleated blinds and, with the well-designed attachments, addresses well those hard-to-get-to nooks and crannies and around and on our antiques. We are pleased to see that Hoover is still the killer (quality) product our parents used in our childhood half a century ago. A definite recommendation from people who have struggled with inferior products, whether cheaper or more expensive, in the past. Well-made and easily stored. Credos to Hoover!!! Thanks to Home Depot!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SunnyinFL Great lightweight vacuum
This is our second Platinum Hoover vacuum. After six years, the first one started quitting every so often when the connection in the handle loses contact; and it was too expensive to fix. But because we liked the first one so much and the price has come down significantly, we decided to get a second one. It is so lightweight that I can easily maneuver it on thick carpet without killing my arm and it really makes the carpet and tile floors look clean. The separate canister is very convenient to use, and now we have two of them since the first one still works like new!

It has no attachments which I love. Its light weight and strong vacuum is the best I have ever used and I have bought some very expensive vacuums.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by greytscot Love it!
Great vacuum cleaner. Easy to use, less dusty than others due to hypoallergenic bags. Would prefer ease of "on-board" attachments versus the separate smaller unit though. This vacuum was a great wee cleaner for 5 years then the handle snapped near the top where I can see it is actually two parts joined together. Unfortunately this design is a weak spot. Everything else is still working great but without the upright handle it's really no longer functional and seems a waste of a good machine. :(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NLgolden The BEST vacuum on the market - PERIOD
I first bought a Dyson because of all the ranting & raving I saw on TV. I sadly returned it 2 days later, very disappointed. I had heard that this proudct had an even better warranty than the Dyson, and it was on sale at Home Depot, so on a whim, I gave it a try. WELL - WHAT A DELIGHT! My carpet feels and looks BRAND NEW every time I vacuum (the carpet is over 15 years old!). This thing has AMAZING suction. The only flaw I could find with it is it doesn't do floors - there is no hose attachment for floors. The little buddy machine that goes with it for floors I found just awkward and gave it away to my mother. But the vacuum itself is totally AWESOME!
