OK, I am one of those shoppers that take awhile to make a decision on any reasonably higher end purchase. I wanted a very good vacuum that lasts. My initial attention was towards the Dyson, then the Electrolux Versatility and then the Hoover Platinum Bagless Upright. I spent time online researching from every possible angle. Dyson was very expensive, decent reviews, but did not seem to live up to the price and looked a bit odd. Electrolux was cheaper, very good reviews, but on the heavy side and the filter needed replacement, which cost about $30.00 abt every 6 months. That could quickly add up! This Hoover has cyclonic technology, is very powerful, has a lifetime filter (or at least should last for a long time,)very long cord and I like the clean/dirty indicator. Only consistent criticism I read was that the attachment hose could be longer. Although it perhaps could be longer, unless you have very high ceilings this should be fine. Easy to set up and easy to empty. Did take about 1 minute to figure out how to close it (a complaint of some.) After that it was fine. OH noticed the price just came down from when I purchased it 2 weeks ago! Oh well…. Walmart delivered in less time than indicated!!!Thanks =)
