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.
Features & Specs - Hoover WindTunnel T-Series UH30300
Bag Denotes whether the model has a disposable waste bag. A growing number of vacuums, particularly upright models, use a container that can be emptied, eliminating the bag. To capture fine-dirt particles, however, these models must use a filter (such as a HEPA filter) that can need regular cleaning, or replacement. Replacement filters tend to be significantly more expensive than bags. While vacuums with bags may also use filters, the bag acts as a pre-filter that helps to keep the fine-dirt filter cleaner, thus extending its performance until cleaning or replacement. Another caveat: Emptying the dustbin and cleaning a filter can be messy, and handling it may expose you to dust and other allergens.
Weight (lbs.) The weight of the vacuum cleaner, to the nearest pound. If you expect to carry your vacuum up and down stairs, consider a lighter vacuum (under 20 pounds).
Brush on/off An on/off switch for the rotating brush lets you stop the brush from rotating when using tools or cleaning bare floors. This helps eliminate scattered dirt on bare floors and reduces the risk of injury if the vacuum tips over during use. It also reduces the risk of damaging a carpet or the finish of a bare floor if the vacuum sits in place at the low-height setting.
Easy on/off A switch that's located on the handle or where your foot can activate it is more convenient than one on the body of the vacuum.
Manual-pile adjust Lets you adjust the height of the machine to a carpet's pile height to allow for easy movement and thorough cleaning. Adjustments are automatic on some models, but we prefer the more precise manual control afforded by some models.
I use this product to vacuum my floors. It is lightweight. The things I don't like is the light that indicates the carpet is clean. It only goes off when a big clump of dust vacuumed. <br />There is a opening to slide the replacement bag and it takes a few tries to get it to stay on, since there are no slots or ways to attach it. It stays on only by friction. Pet hair gets tangled up in the brush, and has to be taken apart at the bottom and cleaned. The bag full indicator is always red, even when the bag is empty.

Does the Job...!!!
Easy to Use
First model was TOO heavy and broke, second one was TOO weak and noisy, so that's in the garage, this one is the Goldielocks model, lightweight and efficient for all our needs. Definitely wanted a bagged model, never want bagless again...!!! We've had this less than a year and it's holding up just fine, no complaints.

Poor on bare/hardwood floors
Easy to Use
Wanted a 2nd vacuum for the 2nd floor which has all hardwood floors; so I selected a vacuum with on/off for the brush to prevent cat litter scatter. Does a horrible job on my dark hardwood floors--will not pick up white specks. I thought maybe it was dry paint, but moves easily with finger--but vacuum will not pick it up.
