Not Reliable, Worthless On Hard Floors

For the price, I expected this to be a fairly good vacuum. On carpet, it was pretty good at first. On a tile floor, though, it wouldn't pick up crumbs or small pieces of mud even on the first day I had it. That was a huge disappointment. A week after I bought the vacuum, it started malfunctioning. First it would only work at all when you pushed the brush roll button for the carpet. If that button wasn't pushed, you would think the thing wasn't plugged in. No noise or suction at all. That problem magically fixed itself a week later. Now it sometimes won't turn on at all. I never know if the thing will work or not. It's a surprise every time I pull it out of the closet. Not cool for a practically new vacuum. It has hardly worked enough in the two months I've had it for me to do any vacuuming! Tomorrow, I'm begging the local store to take the thing back so I can get a new vacuum. What someone else said about the dirt cup being messy to empty is also true.

Exceeded my expectations...

I started my search for a new vacuum with a Dyson and it had a defect, but I also did not like the design of the hose and connections - it was too springy and it was very hard to maneuver. Then, I came across this one! I was looking for a cyclonic vacuum and one that had washable filters. The price was cheaper than the dyson and for only $20 I added 2 more years of warranty - giving it 4 years of warranty. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: Super suction Washable Filters Large dirt cup Brushroll On/Off at fingertips (love this when going between hard surface, carpets, and high pile rugs) Brushroll propels itself Suction slider for more or less attachements store right on the wand cord rewind Seems well made (which also seems to add to the weight - see below) Cons: A little heavy - i think heaver than what's listed on the product details (but since it's a canister you are not pushing that all around) Takes up more space to store than an upright

Returned it to the store!!!

I had to replace my Hoover bagless s3755 because it was recalled. They did not have a replacement in stock, so I decided to give this one a try. It was exciting at first.... then I took it up the stairs. Well, it weighs a ton! Which I was worried about. Then I had my kids doing some vacuuming and the complaints started really coming in. My 9 yr old daughter got to where she hated to vacuum because it was awkward and very heavy!! It was a struggle for her to carry. My 11 yr old son even had trouble carrying this up/down to a different level. Then, the last time using it, the machine wouldn't turn off!! Thankfully, I was still in my 90 day return window. I kept debating on whether to return or not... but this was the decision maker. I am so relieved that I returned it!!! It certainly was not worth the money ~ unless you hope to build muscle lugging it around.

Awesome for Carpets!

I just bought the vacuum cleaner today and I am very satisfied so far. Originally I was going to go for the Hoover Windtunnel 33456, but when I got to my Walmart, that had said online they had it in stock, they actually didn’t have it. Instead I found this one. (I was annoyed with the fact that there were no reviews, so for that sake I wanted to leave one) When I came home I tried it out right away and it is pretty awesome just for the first time use. I can’t say how it is going to turn out after a few months, or a year use though. I especially like it because I have mostly carpet in my home. It is good on hard floor too, but it seems best on carpet and it feels like it is in a good, sturdy overall quality. Pros and cons for me are the following: Pros: Very good suction power Easy to navigate and pulls forward by itself Long sturdy plastic hose Awesomely easy to take off bottom base to access metal hose part Metal hose part pulls out and extends (this is great if you are tall and/or have tall ceilings) No bags, and dirt canister is easy to take off and empties with a click of a button Lamps that indicate what is on Easy to go from carpet to hard floor with a push of a button Filter is easy to access and take out To me it seems pretty quiet. With the windtunnel and Multi-Cyclonic feature I thought it was going to be loud, but it was surprisingly quiet. (At least compared to the Patriot vacuum I use when I go clean at the neighbors house) Cons: Messy to empty (preferable to do so outside. I tried once inside and I ended up having to vacuum half of it back up, so the next time I did it ouside right in the garbage can.) Asseccories seem a little bit low budget, but I tried out the brush to get some spider webs in the ceiling and since the brissles are stiff it got spiderwebs pretty nicely. Cord doesn’t go in unless it is totally straight A little tiny bit heavy, but it is not really that disturbing, unless you are going to haul it up and down a lot of stairs.

Great for a price!

Hi, I bought this vacuum as a Christmas present for my family. I have use it ones yet, so I can't say how long it going to last. The price and the features are reasonable, the suction on this one is just right, ( I can't tell that I was amazed by it, my father had a "Rowenta" and it had the best suction I've ever seen) this one sucks only what needs to be sucked. I like on-board tools they very handy, you don't have to stop and look for a it. I would like to see on/off button for the whole unit, not just for brushroll. Hoover had that feature on it's Platinum series, but pay 150$ just to get that wouldn't worth it. Overall it is a good built unit for the money you pay and it does what it should. P.S. Like lady in previous review mentioned you better go outside to dump the canister, do not do it inside of the house otherwise you have to vacuum again :)

Amazing machine! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This vacuum cleaner is amazing! It's powerful enough to pull my carpet nearly off the floor when I push it across the room and, when the head is turned on, it almost seems to pull me across the room with it! My old, Phantom canister vacuum died last week after 14 years, so I bought this one on-line. It arrived today and, when I passed it over just a small area across my living room rug, it pulled things out that my old vacuum never did! We own 3 cats, and not only did it pick up the cat hair on the rug, but it pulled up particles deep within the fibers without any loss in suction power (like that other fancy $500 vacuum with the British-sounding announcer!) Dust, dirt, you name it--it was in the canister. The only complaint I have is that it is a bit on the heavy side, and the extra long power cord doesn't retract as well as it should (I have to straighten it, pull it out a little while pushing the retract-button), but all-in-all, this is how a vacuum should function!

Garbage!!!!

I purchased the vacuum, used it five times and it broke. My house is small and has a mixture of hardwood floors and area rugs. I am a clean person and wanted a normal vacuum. The vacuum was a little cumbersome, the canister got stuck on its own cord and on furniture or in tight corners. As for performance it didn't work that well on my wood floors, it sucked up a lot of dust but with a bit of dirt or a crumb, it would spit it back out and I found myself going over areas a second or third time. On rugs it performed a bit better but the head would get jammed and I had to clean it out before starting again. On the fifth use it broke. It smelled like burning and started making a horrible noise. I called the 1800 number on the box. They refused to exchange my money even with a receipt but offered a belt replacement. Two uses after the belt replacement it went again. I have since bought a Dyson, it was twice the price but it was completely worth it!
We appreciate your feedback. The belt snapping can indicate an issue with the brush roller. Please check for any clogs and clean it. The owner’s manual will have troubleshooting assistance with the proper way to do this. Thank you!

Disappointing - Returned to Store

We expected a lot from this vacuum because it is priced higher than it's counterparts. It seems quite sturdy and well made. However, the price you will pay for the sturdiness is a very heavy appliance. For this reason, it is awkward to maneuver and difficult to tote around. I had hopes that the suction would be superior because of the "superior" price. However it was simply . . . adequate, nothing to brag about. The on/off switch is in an awkward location. You either have to bend down to it or hike up your leg to turn it on and off with your foot. It was messy to change the dirt cup. The bottom line is that I was afraid I would throw my back out trying to carry it. We are returning it to the store.

good vacuum but not for me

This vacuum is made very well. The suction is excellent and exceeds my expectations especially on the hardwood floor. It is easy to empty. I am somewhat disappointed in the quality of the attachments. The bristles of the dust brush are pretty stiff and scratched my t.v. cabinet. The vacuum is heavier than I expected and the head is very large and hard to maneuver around and under certain furniture pieces. This wasn't the vacuum for me as I prefer one that is lighter and easy to maneuver but I think it is a good value and made well.

No parts being made for this vacuum yet.

This is a good small canister vacuum! However, I have now purchased two of them, and I have no idea when one under warranty repair will be returned. the first vacuum had the brush roller seize up. When we called to get a replacement brush adaptor, we were told no parts were being manufactured yet and we would have to purchase another entire vacuum! So, we did!!! Four weeks later the motor burnt out on one, I returned it to an authorized warranty dealer on April 2, just received the sixth message that the part is on backorder AGAIN!!!! We are moving 5 states away and Hoover says picking up the vacuum at the authorized dealer at the old address is my problem not theirs!!!! The dealer has been very kind, apologetic and is willing to split the shipping costs!!! Hoover's first rep said they could re route the return of the vacuum, the second and third reps, AND the customer Service MANAGER never apologized, simply said it was MY problem that I had purchased a defective vacuum and needed it repaired and was moving 10 weeks after it was left at the dealership! Both of these vacuums have vacuumed a mere 2000 square feet, they were both purchased in January 2011, I don't have much hope they will last thru the end of the year!
