Rated 5 out of 5 by Helianthus Picks up lint!
By far, this is the best vacuum I have ever used. Our carpet was matted and covered in lint because the overpriced Dyson I purchased would not pick it up. Purchased this vacuum with high hopes and was not disappointed. It picks up everything including lint. My carpet looks like it's been vacuumed unlike with the Dyson I was using. I did have to empty the container several times on my first use because it sucked up all the dirt/debris my other vacuum wasn't getting. The hose for the attachment is tight so it's hard to extend very far but will probably loosen up with time. I used the attachment to clean my loveseat and recliner and it worked very nicely. Also, it's not super heavy. Once you start vacuuming it seems to propel itself so if you are an elderly person I don't think this vaccum would be hard for you to use. I'm extremely happy with my purchase. This vacuum is well worth every penny!!!!!

Pros:LONG cord, we have a 2100sqft home and can just about reach the whole house. Extremely powerful suction. sturdy
Cons: Hose for the wand is not very long. heavy. but if you have a single story house this is not so much of an issue.

This is an excellent vac sucks up everything. I would recommend it to anyone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WJSS Great vacuum
What a great vacuum cleaner! We were looking to replace a moderately priced vacuum cleaner after noticing all of our childrens socks seemed to always be dirty. We borrowed our friends Dyson and were amazed at how much dirt our previous vacuum was leaving in the carpet. We vacuumed until the Dyson seemed to be done picking up dirt and started our search in to buying a Dyson.
We ended up searching on the web and found great reviews for this Hoover. Decided to buy it and try it since it was less than half the cost of the Dyson. We were amazed at how much more the Hoover picked up from the carpet after the Dyson had just been used.
The dirt sensor on the Hoover is really a neat feature. We were amazed at how you could tell our foot traffic patterns in our house just by watching the sensor. It took a number of more passes for it to register that the carpet was "Clean" in the areas of high use.
The option to turn off the brush is great for using it on our woods floors too!
Rated 5 out of 5 by marylandcritic Very Satisfied
Very satisfied with the vacuum cleaner. It worked very well I've only had it for a couple of weeks so i really can't speak for the durability. It is kind of tricky to close the dust bin after you have emptied it and if you don't close it properly it might open when you try to remove it from the vacuum.

I have been looking for a new vacuum cleaner to replace my Eureka bagless unit. I had been dissatisfied with its performance since I purchased it. After alot of searching and review reading, I settled on this Hoover Platinum Bagless unit. Immediately upon receipt I gave it a try out and wow!! I was impressed! It definitely put my Eureka to shame, as I had just vacuumed with it earlier. The new Hoover found dirt that the old vacuum left behind. I am also impressed with how quiet it is compared to other vacuum cleaners. The light is extra bright, and using the attachments is hassle free! Although I wish it had more attachments than it comes with, but its cleaning ability outranks lack of attachments by far!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dailycleaner A very good product
The Hoover Platinum Bagless Upright Vacuum is the best Vacuum I have ever purchased it is just a little more cost than other but after using the Hoover Platinum Bagless Upright Vacuum I understand why the way it clean the carpets is unreal and with the extra long cord I can vasuum two to three rooms without having to unplug and plug up in another room. the only thing wrong with this vacuum is the amount of attachments there are only two it would be great to see a attachment to clean your couch and chairs, but overall I would recomend this vacuum to anyone looking for the best vaccum on the market.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BBLovely AMAZING!!!
I love this vacuum. I've owned and blown through so many vacuums, none of them hoover. I decided to suck up the almost 300.00 and buy this one. It was soooo worth it. I have 3 kids, under the age of 5 and a dog.. It picks up EVERYTHING!!! The maintence is easy and I love the fact that the cord is forever long. I can plug it in on one end of my house, and finish the whole floor before going upstairs.
I let my mother borrow it... she returned it 3 days later... and she loved it. She also bought one. My mom has fibro myalgia, carple tunnel and lupus... the fact that the vacuum is self propeled doesn't make it painful to vacuum. And this woman vacuums every night!!!!
All in all, this is an amazing vacuum. If you do your research, like I did, you'll end up buying it.... and you can't beat the 6 year warranty!! ENJOY
Rated 5 out of 5 by goldwing2009 that is a vacum cleaner
This is a powerful and rather quiet vacum cleaner that doesn't appear to leak any dust. I think it is the best (and not the most expensive) vacum cleaner I have ever owned.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveToShopForEveryone Overall, I give this a five star rating. After reading several reviews online I decided to purchase this Hoover Platinum Bagless vacuum. I have only had it a few weeks but I am completely satisfied. It gets up more dirt than my last vacuum cleaner. The canister is easy to empty and it has a really long cord so I don't have to unplug it when I go from room to room. I found it was cheaper to order online for about $263 than to pay the $350 the store wanted. And when I purchased this my item was shipped for 97 cents. I received my item 3 days before the expected arrival date so that made this transaction even better.
Rated 4 out of 5 by simfam Good buy
Love it so far. Especially like the clean / dirty indicator light. Our kids love to use it, the light keeps them motivated. Only a few negatives to note: it is a little heavy & bulky when trying to move it to store when not in use. Also, I like the long extention on the hose, but find it a little hard to manuever when trying to reach some angles. I think that it would be better if it were removable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brown5 GREAT VACUUM
This is a great vacuum. It looks nice and works very well. I used my old Hoover two days before my Hoover Platinum arrived. I could not believe how much stuff it sucked out of my area rugs. My house is mostly pergo and I love that you can turn brush off so dirt doesnt just get thrown around. It has a super long cord with an easy cord release. I am able to vacuum my 2000 sq/ft home without changing outlets. The attachment hose is so convienent to use. It only has two attachments but thats all I need for base boards and furniture. I must admit I was skeptical to make this purchase due to some of the negetive reviews but I am so happy I did. You cant always listen to what people say...
Rated 5 out of 5 by aleecesmom With red and green lights, the Embedded DirtFINDER system alerts the user to areas of carpet that may need more cleaning attention. It is able to sense when embedded dirt is being removed. The clean light (green) will remain on throughout cleaning except when the detector senses that a larger amount of dirt is being picked up; then the dirty light (red) will come on. When the dirty light is on, you should take additional cleaning strokes in the area until it changes to clean (green).

This is the best feature ever!
Rated 5 out of 5 by john21 Hoover vacuum
This is maybe the best vacuum ever. I am comparing it to my old dirt bag, oops, dirt devil that was extremely loud and picked up practically nothing.
This new Hoover is tremendous. I am a stay-at-home hubby so I do all the house work. Actually retired.
This Hoover vacuum is very easy to handle and very quiet. Not even my kitties will run and hide from it. Just the sight of my dirt devil had them running and hiding.
There is one word of caution. If you sweep for the first time (like I did) I totally plugged up everything from all the dirt. The first time you vacuum, check the area at the bottom quite often.
Since I jammed my entire area full of dirt, I had to not only empty the bottom area, I had to remove the cone to unplug everything. I had sucked up enough cat hair to make 3 kitties. The cone twists out very easy, but do it outside as it makes a mess.
Yes, this vacumm really works on kitty hair. Like nothing I have ever used. I could not believe how the bright colors of my carpet re-appeared after being clean for the first time ever!!
Yes, I recommend this vacuum totally.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OfficeBabe Works Great
I bought this for use at the office. There is a lot of traffic and considering the hard winter that we have had there as been salt tracked in all over the place. this picked it up without spitting it back at me like my old vacume.
The only complaint if there is one is that it is hard to push/pull when the dirtyy light is on and it is really sucking hard. I will say there does seem to be a significant impovement in the look of our old carpet since getting this new vacume. You can really tell that it is picking up all the junk.
Rated 5 out of 5 by eanddsmom AWESOME!!
After spending lots of money and constantly returning vacuums, I FINALLY found one that I LOVE! Usually, I will wait a couple weeks before giving my review. However, I don't anything happening with this one!
After reading such rave reviews, we went to buy it at a local Wal-Mart. Their price: $380!! We came back home and purchased it on-line on a Sunday afternoon. I received it on Tuesday morning!
PROS: The cord is long enough to cover my entire upstaris of 1800 sq. ft. The light on the vacuum is better than the headlights on my vehicle. It is very easy to assemble and is actually not too heavy. I am a clean freak and this actually lets you see where you have vacuumed!! I Have to see the lines! There is an embedded dirtfinder which alerts you to areas of carpet that may need more cleaning. The light either says, "Dirty" or "Clean". Has a dial to remind you of when to clean the filters. In my opinion, it is much better value than the $263 I paid for it on-line. I have two young children and a dog running around all day long! This is perfect for my needs! My neighbor has a Dyson and we did a test...this is BETTER!!
CONS: Doesn't have as many attachments as I like, but with the way this vacuums, I'll deal with it!!
I would highly recommend this vacuum!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by vacumbealsy powerfullthing
this is a nice vacum, but theres not a wand on the thing. which makes you have to bend over to get the corners and such. for some reason it doesnt turn well on the floor. the wheels squeak when turning it on floor. it sucks really well. one bad thing is the dust that is staying in the canister is there any way to get it out?/???????????? cant figure it out. thats nasty the dust left in there. o and its very heavy. dont think its really worth the money i spent on it. may bring it back to walmart.
Rated 5 out of 5 Super suction
This vacuum has superior suction. I wish I could show you what it picked up on a supposedly clean carpet. We had to empty it multiple times to account for large loads that a regular vacuum couldn't get. The clean/dirty light appears to be very accurate. When it says "clean" there isn't anything else to pick up.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WorkinMum I'm in love with my vacuum!
This vacuum is awesome! It took me several weeks and lots of research before deciding on this vac, and I know I made the right choice. I don't like to say that I'm cheap, but I can be a little conservative with my money. I was torn between this and one of those pricier vacuums with the ball. I am so happy with my purchase. I agree with the other 5 star reviews that this vacuum doesn't get everything at the edges, but that's why there's attachments. The suction is so strong that I could lift my carpet with the hose. The amount of dirt this thing gets up is unbelieveable! I had to go over my carpets several times to get the "dirty" indicator to go off, but when all the dirt finally came out, it switched to "clean". It's embarassing to admit, but I got over a pound of dirt out of my living room carpet! I guess you really don't know what's in your carpets until you have a quality vacuum. I recommend emptying this outside because of all the dust and fine particles. Some people may find this vacuum a little heavy, but I wanted a good, sturdy vacuum after years of inheriting everyone else's junk! I love it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by GodBless7 Good Bye Dust Buddies!
I have only used this a few times so i will update if anything goes wrong but so far i Love this vacuum! It really gets the job done and the clean and dirty light really works!!! It is Amazing on the wood floors. It doesn't throw dirt and dust around like other vacuums I'v had in the past! It actually sucks up the dust buddies i usually get with the broom!
I really like the extension on the cleaning cord. It expands then retracts back to the original shape. Has long cord to vacuum more rooms at a time.
It is a little on the heavy side but for the amount of suction it has i can deal with this. The good definitely outweighs the bad!
Rated 5 out of 5 by DoesNotDoHousework More of the same
I could not rate durability because I just got the product and how good can a vacuum cleaner look? That said, like others, I assembled the handle onto the main body of the vacuum and vacuumed the front room. I have a very conscientious maid that vacuums every two weeks and when I finished I could not believe the amount of dirt, etc., that was in the canister. I also like the fact that there was no preceptible odor while vacuuming which I assume is due to the filtration. The product is a bit pricey but I saved $105 minus $1 shipping by ordering the vacuum on-line versus buying it out of the store. It is the same item, same part number, etc., so you know how I would recommend buying this. I will update in a year or sooner if it ceases to perform or perform well.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Redjac30 Just bought it
Our last vacuum died so i hopped on Walmart website and just bought this one no rhyme or reason. Unbelievable what this thing picks up compared to my old Dirt Devil. I love the bagless canister. I was a little suspect of the Clean/Dirty sensor on the front, but it really seems to work especially in a few of our more "high traffic" areas in the house. Overall, without doing any research, a pretty good buy but I've only owned it for about 3 weeks. I feel cleaner already...
Rated 5 out of 5 by PickyCleaningFreak Great!
I finally feel like I have a clean carpet when I'm finished vacuuming. They corrected everything I didn't like about my Dyson.
Would have liked a longer wand and the furniture attachment is a little small. I don't know how the snap to close the bagless empty will hold up in the long run but the pluses outweigh completely.
All in all it's 1000 times better than my Dyson and I love it. Great suction and cleaning with nothing being thrown out the back even on hardwood floors. Best Christmas present I ever gave myself. :)
Rated 5 out of 5 by classof85THS Just buy it.. you won't be sorry.
Let's just say this. We borrowed my sister in-laws dyson and used it for a week and my wife fell in love with it. I read all the reviews on this Hoover and liked the price on-line so I bought the Hoover. This thing works so much better than the dyson. It was disgusting what was in our carpets trapped. Every time we use the hoover the carpet looks better and better and the house smells so clean.
Skip the Dyson,, buy the Hoover.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyLady310 Love It!
Vacuum has great suction, total ease of use in changing rug levels, almost self propelled and a snap to clean out. The durability of this product is unknown to me right now, but Hoover has a good product name from years past. I would buy this product again.
I recommend it to anyone that wants a powerfully cleaning vacuum.
Rated 5 out of 5 by detailobsessed move over dyson
I've used many vacuums over 30 years such as Kirby, Dyson, Hoover, Eureka, etc., both canisters and upright styles and this is a mid priced vacuum that functions like a high end one. A fantastic product at a great price. You will be amazed at what comes out of your carpets and pads underneath them even if you're a vacuum fanatic like me. We have 2 small dogs running around and I find their hair and dander a challenge to keep up with and on average I vacuum twice per week. It remains to be seen about the durability and repair history as I haven't had it very long but this is my favorite vacuum of all time as far as the suction goes for performance. It's easy to push/pull, easy to clean and change filters. There are only 2 things I wish Hoover to modify and that is to add more onboard attachments (an extention wand and a small hard surface tool). I'm currently using these attachments from my old vacuum and they fit. Also would like the design to be able to lower all the way down to go under furniture. But over all I would very much recommend this vacuum to everyone I know. The sunction is as good or better than the Dyson at less than half the price. I love this vacuum.

This is the Cadillac of vacuums.IT is easy to operate and clean and does a fantastic job.I had a dyson all floor and hated it,so I gave it to my daughter in law.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lvolson Impressive
I purchased this vacuum to replace my Hoover Windtunnel that recently died after almost 14 years. I did not like spending so much for a vacuum but I figured I would take a chance based on other customer reviews. I love the power. It seems to have much more suction than my old vac. This is my first bagless... I love it! The "clean/dirty" light is nice also. The issues I have with it: 1) The price, but considering this is only my 2nd vac it's hard to judge and I assume "you get what you pay for". 2) It seems "delicate" compared to my departed Windtunnel. 3) no upholstry attachment... it's an option but not included. 4) the "flap" to empty canister is hard to close... you have to hold the button, then push the lid shut and hold it until you release the button... makes emptying much more dirty than needed. 5) On it's 2nd use, it would not lock upright. I had to manually move the locking lever up to get it to stay. This problem has not repeated in the last few uses so I consider it a fluke. 6) Though the dirt canister is clear, it is difficult to tell when it is getting full w/o stopping the vacuum and looking from the front. 7) It claims it "will not lose suction" but in the manual it says the filters much be changed regularly to prevent loss of suction... in other words, if you maintain it like new it will work like new.
Overall it is a great cleaning tool so far. My issues are mostly with options I never had before so they could be common for all I know. I really doubt I will get 10+ years from this vac but only time will tell on that one.
