Love, Love, Love this vacuum. Only wish it had the automatic cord rewind.
Rated 5 out of 5 by HooverGirl Love it!
We have been very pleased with our new vacuum! It is amazing how much stuff it picks up compared to our old one. The only downside is I wish the attachment hose was longer and that it had more attachments- but nothing big. I can't speak much to the durability as we've only used it a handful of times. Would definitely recommend!

I moved to a new apartment in feb. And the carpet had been cleaned. Within 3 business days of getting the keys to the new apt had I received the vacuum I was a little skeptical of vacuuming since the carpet had recently been cleaned but did it anyways since someone in the household is allergic to dust. I was amazed at what the vacuum picked up. The container was filled with dirt and what not. The apartment is about 1000 sq ft and only 3 rooms have carpet. I ended up having to empty the dirt containing compartment once. After vacuuming the carpet felt softer and fluffier. The apartment smelled cleaner. I decided not to rate this product right away to be able to get a good idea of how this would really work for me and for those in my home. There has been less allergy reactions since getting this vacuum. I love this vacuum, I've been complimented on a clean home, and it really isn't too hard to keep clean.
Rated 5 out of 5 Blows the others out of the running!!!
I am a previous Hoover Windtunnel owner and Loved it, but after 8 years one side of the rollers quit, I thought it did a great job, but this new one blows it out of the waters. It picks up cat hair and dander fantasticly and I have long hair, it works great on that too and doesn't get caught around the roller. Also my old Hoover attachments work on this one too. I would defently recomend to my friends and family and have. Price is higher then most but it's worth it if you don't have to buy one every couple of years like with others, check out wharehouse stores for good prices too.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SkepticalTester initial results
Just received this vacuum. So far super impressed. cannot rate durability cause it's one day old,BUT. This beast cleans better than any vacuum I've ever seen. There is absolutely no detectable odor while vacuuming. It has pulled dirt from floor that the $1200 Kirby left behind. We have pets and OH!, did I mention no odor. Deep dirt finder is impressive. Also 6 year warranty makes extended unnecessary. No turbo brush included,thus the 4 star on features. So far, though, 5 stars is underrating this machine. It's the best ever for the money. As my handle implies I'm usually a tough sell(that should also tell you something about this product)
Rated 4 out of 5 by SkyGuy79 Great alternative to a Dyson!
I purchased this model at a chain wholesaler (wish I could tell you the AWESOME deal I got on it but I'm not supposed to) after considering the famed Dyson but I didn't want to pay twice what I got this one for! I took it home and was amazed at how much dirt came out of a "clean" rug. This thing can really SUCK! It is incredibly quiet for such a powerful machine, and the suction doesn't stop even with a full dirt cup. I am glad I chose this instead of a Dyson as it has features the Dyson doesn't have: Windtunnel Technology DirtFinder LED light on the front I wish there was a way to purchase the turbo handheld that seems to come with some models but didn't with mine even though it is supposedly a top-of-the-line model! If Hoover truly wants to meet/beat/exceed Dyson, they should include more attachments and make the hose longer. Also, the one thing the Dyson DOES have on this is the ability to open the dirt cup from the main handle. On this one you have to hit a release and can get your hands very dirty trying to close it. You can do even better Hoover!

I've used this vacuum for 2 months now and it is my first experience with a bagless vacuum. I had been shopping for a bagless vacuum to replace a worn-out Hoover Wind Tunnel. This product wasn't available in-store in my area, so I had to order it online. I probably won't do that again because if I could have "test driven" this one, I may not have chosen it. The self-propelled feature isn't available on the Platinum - a little strange I thought for a high-end model. It's big, bulky and heavy, making it harder to maneuver. It does do the job on cleaning, though, and that includes pet hair. Emptying the dirt cup can be challenging - the owners' manual has an insert with special instructions that aren't very helpful. It takes some practice to get the hang of it. As others have said, do the emptying outside until you get good at it. The cup opens easliy; it's the closing and staying closed that's the tricky part. The other features are fine, especially the carpet-height adujustment, the long cord and the light. My main reservation with it is the weight and bulk. It does what it is supposed to - it cleans!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Clean in La Grange Screw Dyson
I spent two months mulling over the Hoover Platinum Bagless and a Dyson DC28. After trying both vacuums out at [...] the nod went to the Hoover. Overall construction of the Hoover is better than Dyson...it doesn't feel as loose and "plasticky" as Dyson. The Dyson has a self-propelling feature which is nice, but the Hoover's active dirty/clean sensor is superior to Dyson's features. I gave four stars only because of the vacuum's heft. It is somewhate heavy, and the footprint is a bit larger than what I am accustomed to. In conclusion, I am glad I went with Hoover.
Rated 4 out of 5 by TechnoGirlie Great alternative to Dyson
Chose this vacuum over the dyson due to price. On consumer reports.org this product is comparable to the dyson line. I have 3 dogs, 2 of which are shephard mixes and shed almost year round. This vacuum has had no problem getting up their hair AND their dander. I especially like the clean/dirty light that can be easily seen when operating the vacuum. It's also super EASY to switch from carpets to bare floors, with literally a push of a button located near the top of the handle (no more of that annoying bending down to switch). The filtration is excellent; with past vacuums my husband has had to vacuum because I have bad allergies and other vacuums we've owned seem to spray the air with the pet dander/dust etc. With this vacuum, I'm able to vacuum without any problems with my allergies. The tool suction is pretty good (but doesn't beat out our shop-vac) and the container is fairly easy to empty once you get the hang of it. Overall, this is an excellent high quality vacuum. I recommend getting this Vacuum over the Dyson; for the price of one Dyson you can get two of these hoovers with the same excellent results.
Rated 5 out of 5 Great Product
This is a great product. I vacumned with another good machine and then the platinum and picked up a cup of dirt and hair. It is very quiet when compared to most vacumns
Rated 5 out of 5 by HandyHomeowner Great vacuum
This vacuum sucks the dirt out really well. I used it to clean my entire house after a remodel which kicked a lot of dust everywhere. After several trips to the trash can for emptying the dust can, we were happy to see the carpets clean. No more dust, no hair, etc. I have also used it on hardwood flooring before using a wet cleaner, and it works very well. Multipurpose and very powerful. Hand attachments are fine. The hose does extend, you just have to stretch it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by milfordmom05 Best vacuum ever
This is the best vacuum I have ever had. My carpet looks like new again (3 dogs, 3 kids and a cat no problem). I actually look forward to vacuuming now. I love seeing how great my carpet can look. Bag of sugar dumped on my carpet - NO PROBLEM! Love the suction, hose/wand, controls in the handle, super long cord, bright light, easy to put together, no more bags & easy to clean, warranty. Highly recommend. Best price at Walmart and delivery to my house in two days for .97cents.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jonny1965 Worth the price!!!
The best thing I can think to say is read all the other positive reviews. They are all correct, this may be the best upright vacuum ever built!
Rated 4 out of 5 by sportmom33 great vacuum
I read a ton of reviews before making this purchase. I have to say that this vacuum does what it says it will do. I held off on writing my review until I used it for awhile. I have had my vacuum for about 4 months now. I have a daycare in my home and 2 dogs. I was always concerned about dirt and fur. This vacuum picks it all up and lifts the carpet fibers up.
The first time I used this vacuum, I vacuumed forever...it kept picking up all the dirt that my old vacuum left behind. I also love that the cord is VERY long. I can vacuum my whole downstairs without changing to another outlet. I have about 2000 sqf downstairs.
The things I don't like about the vacuum are that it is loud and heavy, but for how much dirt is picked up, it is WAY worth it. The hose is way too short to vacuum the stairs. I am looking into purchasing an extention hose. The one last major thing that I don't like about this vacuum is that you have to use two hands to empty the canister and your hands get dirty. I am sure that with how awesome this vacuum is, they will work that out here in the near future. I bought my vacuum for
$240.00 on sale and for that price, I would recomend purchasing this vacuum.
Rated 5 out of 5 Nice Vacuum
Very nice vacuum. It was worth the price. It really pulls up a lot of dirt. The first time I used it I had to empty the container a couple of times because it got everything that my old vacuum was leaving behind. The only con is that the hose for the attachments is too short. I ordered this online and got it shipped to my house for less than a buck and received it in less than 2 days.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Karasgramma Better than Dyson
So glad I decided on this vacuum. I was contemplating the Dyson top of the line model and then found that Hoover also had a Cyclonic vacuum. I have beige carpet and dogs....need I say more. It took about 6-7 times vacuuming my entire house however, I now have all the dog hairs, sand and years of the smelly carpet powder out of my rugs. My carpets actually look like they have been cleaned and no more matted appearance. My husband who doesn't get excited about such things even noticed the carpet was softer and cleaner. Love this vacuum and not near the cost of the Dyson. Replacing my Oreck!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gadgetluvr WOWZERS!
Wow! I don't think my old vacuum was working at all! I thought I kept a clean house but after vacuuming my living room and seeing how much it pulled out I was so grossed out. My daughter had spilled glitter on her bedroom carpet years ago, and guess what? This vacuum pulled a TON more out! It is amazing! I am so glad I bought this product! The easy one touch to change the height of the carpet pile was great too! Love love LOVE this vacuum!
Rated 4 out of 5 by kalcoone Largest manufacturer's best
Our alternative to a noisy and overpriced Dyson. The electronic floor height adjustment is neat. Strong suction, cleans well. Quiet motor operation and quality quiet rolling wheels. Only one complaint, the unit shuts down on its own after being in use for little bit and you have to unplug it for a few minutes and then reuse it. Contacting Walmart, we have had it for less than a month.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat0507 love it
we've only had this vacuum for about a month so i can't speak much to its durability. like other people who posted we can't believe how much it picks up. also it's easy to push - my 9 year old is the official family "vacuumer." and it's less noisy than our old vacuum which he loves. bagless part is very easy to empty...not messy like my old dirt devil. the only problem i had was screwing the top part (handle) into the the body of the vacuum...i used our drill. very easy to assemble otherwise. this vacuum is much more economical than the dyson for our family. my sister and mom both have dysons and they're upset they spent so much money. my sister says her dyson has lost most of its suction. she has 2 dogs and thinks that it couldn't handle the pet hair. my mom said hers broke and they can't figure out why.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cindy209 Love this vacuum
I spent 4 hours vacuuming my 1000 sq ft apartment the first time I used this. That's how much dirt was left behind from my old vacuum. Every time after that has been quick and easy now that the deep cleaning is done. The hose is easy to use, I love the long cord, easy to empty, buttons are nice to adjust height, dirty/clean light is cool, and it does a good job. Kind of pricey for me but it was worth it.
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!!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BaneSidhe Big Vacuum
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by ksmith8964 Awesome
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.
