About This Brand

Hoover introduced its first vacuum in 1907 and has established itself as one of the most recognizable brands in America. More recently, Hoover was bought from Whirlpool by TTI Floor Care, the owners of Dirt Devil. Hoover sells a wide variety of uprights at mass-market retailers, with models ranging from as little as $50 to $300. It also makes hand and stick vacuums, canister models (about $80 to $300), deep cleaners, central vacuums, bare-floor cleaners, and an outdoor sweeper, though the company is best known for its uprights.

Comment:
One of the better stick vacs that does surprisingly well on carpet. Handles nicely, very pleasant to use on stairs, relatively easy to clean for a bagless. Weak spots; battery looses capacity in a few months, and the wiring to the power brush head can break within the handle (repair's tedious), suction motor's very noisy.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I found that this sweet little light-weight 'Cordless' (love a cordless!) cleaned better than my large heavy-duty vacs (the 3 most-popular names in vacs), so I grab it for ALL my floor jobs now. Loved it so much that I bought one for each end of the house. The two will clean my entire main level (or one could recharge the battery & use same vac), two will clean all my upstairs, and one charge will clean all the rooms on the garage level. (My sister used mine one time, and promptly bought herself one, she liked it so much!) Have had mine 2 yrs with not one single problem thus far. If I did have a prob though, I'd buy another immediately, Lord willing! Agreeing w/another reviewer, I don't know how CR could give this vac anything but top rating all across the board. Never liked (loved?) a vac this much before - ever. 5 ♥♥♥♥♥s, not stars, from this ol' gal.

Comment:
I have had this vacuum for over a year, still works great. I am able to clean my kitchen/dining area, entry hall, bathrooms and cat area in one charge (about 20 min.) It cleans fine dust and dirt up so well, that when I mop the floors, my water is barely discolored. It does a great job on cat fur and litter. I also use it for a quick clean of my carpets to get surface dirt up/spills. The bottom of the dirt canister drops open for easy disposal, but you will need to thoroughly clean it out occasionally and it can be messy due to the fine dirt. (I wear gloves.) Also, due to the design, it can tip over backwards easily if bumped. Overall, a great product.
