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. :(

I bought into the idea that, in trade for a lighter vacuum, I could go without an attached hose and use the separate shoulder canister for tighter or raised spaces, but that was a mistake. This vacuum worked well (before the expensive handle portion just broke in two during normal use, a few months after the warranty expired), but the shoulder-strap canister is screamingly loud and clumsy, with a cord that was everywhere you didn't want it to be. In my older home, we have a lot of nooks the vacuum just wouldn't go, and it seemed cobwebs always formed one inch above the vacuum's suction. Without an attached hose at the ready, you're just going over everything twice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seadog12 Great vacuum
I couldn't be happier with this new upright vac and canister vacuum, it has the right amount of power to do the job, and the canister is perfect for the house or the car, and a 5 year warranty how can you bet that at a great price!

Just purchased my second Platinum vac and it works great. As we age (or get lazy) it is nice to have a vac that you can manuver without stress. The unit is very effecient and produces great results and very easy to push and manuver. My older vac it at the farm residence and still works great too.

On my second one. First one wore out I guess, needed new carbon brushes. seemed like a premature death IMO. Second one is flashing check bag light for no reason and will not run, seems like an electrical circuit board problem. Too bad because when it does work it has good power. Done me thinks with this brand!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LeslieM Replacement of 20 year Hoover
My origin Hoover survived so well, I had to replace it with another when it finally died.
I chose the two-piece set to get a lighter option and the quality I had always known.
I like the old-type bagged vac. Miss the power assist. The canister is light but I haven't gotten used to it yet. Seems good so far.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Muguet des bois Very powerful vacuum. In fact, it is so powerful, it sucked up the power cord and chewed up most of the cord insulation!
Very lightweight, very powerful. Not as loud as other Hoovers, but it is still loud. Stair cleaning feature is no easy to use and doesn't clean the very end or back of the stair. It is still not low enough to get under beds. Self adjustment is good. What do I do about the power cord? Love the light and long power cord.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FrankieB Good vacumm with bad drive belt.
Only had the vacumm one month and already the drive belt came apart. I'm hoping this was a flaw with this particular belt and not a continuing problem. Replacement belts are not cheap. Also, it is curious that the same replacement belt can be purchased online at Amazon.com far cheaper than through Hoover.com
