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

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brokenneck Great Vacuum...not so great handle
The Vacuum is by far the best I've owned in regards to its suction and performance. However, the handle should be redesigned. Like many other reviewers, mine too broke off at the base. Have had it for about five years without any problem, until this. I have tried to order a replacement online but they are out of stock which makes me suspect that many others are having the same problem. I would definitely buy another one if it did not have a self destruct handle at the end of the warranty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Neal45 Pretty well pleased
Does a pretty good job but I have to compare it to a more than 12 year old Oreck 8# that had burned out. The Hoover is cheaper and works well on carpets that challenged the Oreck. But the Oreck was much better on stairs because it was lighter and the cord was easier to use because of higher quality.
Hoover Pros - Lighter than many, good suction, long cord, good on wood/carpet mixture floors. Seems to be a decent vacuum for the money.
Hoover Cons - A bit heavy for stairs, cord quality so-so, and changing from high to low suction works poorly, and sometimes not at all. I just leave it on high because I am afraid it will stick permanently on low. Not a major feature anyway.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by notatallhappy Sucks dirt and sucks in quality
Had it for 3 months and the handle just broke. Don't even want to wast my time going through warranty process.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kalesi Broken Handle
I bought this vacuum about 7 years ago and have loved it up until today. The handle broke! I think it must be a bad design as I have read enough reviews from people with the same problem. I bought a Hoover due to its name and history and have to say I am disappointed that a higher end vacuum handle would just snap without reason.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RalphRoberts4 True Air Quality in one piece.
Light. Easy to use. Hardwood, Tile, Carpet & Rugs. Stairs. Low setting so you do not suck up your rugs. Canister is so powerful. Bags seal themselves when removed. Very clean disposal. The bags last me an average of 2 months with 3 dogs, 2 cats, 4 children in a 1,900 sqft house and I vacuum every other day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Norms47 The best vacumn I've own
My daughters purchased this vacumn as a Christmas present in 2014. I can't believe the suction power it has as I see my area rugs raise when I pass over them. It is so powerful and it is also great on floors. I am very happy with this product and would recommend it to everyone who needs a new vacumn.
