I was kind of weary on buying a vacuum cleaner at this cheap of a price. I own 2 Kirbys, a Dyson Animal, an Oreck, and 2 $400 dollar Kenmores. So buying a vacuum at this low of a price kind of scared me. But it is actually a very good cleaner!
I mainly bought this for cleaning my furniture. But the tools are lousy. All it comes with is a moderately stiff upholstery brush and a crevice tool. I would like it to also come with a soft dusting brush, a stiffer upholstery tool, a turbo tool preferably (my Kenmore came with an actual electric mini turbo nozzle). But I am so impressed with this vacuum, that I have actually decided to use it on the floors and the Kenmore on the furniture and stairs! I wasn't sure about the attachments being located in the handle. Every other canister I have owned, they have been on-board the canister. But it's actually not that bad, and they don't fall off like I thought they would.
The handle is very comfortable to use, and has a soft handle grip. I also like the on/off brushroll switch in the handle, but I refuse to buy a canister without an on/off brushroll. But something I do wish it had was a variable speed control in the handle, as well as the power switch in the handle. That would be much more convenient. The telescopic wand is nice, but I don't usually change the height of it. The power nozzle is GREAT! It has a very nice brushroll that actually deep cleans unlike my Kenmore! I have an old bagged Hoover from the late 90's with the Windtunnel Technology and it is a great feature, and I was glad to see that this actually has it in the power nozzle! I would like to see a headlight on this model though. My Kenmore has 2 headlights on it, one on the power nozzle, and one in the wand. The cord is a good length, as well as the hose. Emptying it is easy, but sometimes clumps of dirt get caught up in the container, making you have to reach up in and get some of it with your hands. But I don't really mind that.
I really recommend this vacuum! My wife does not like canisters, and actually uses this one! And if you look on Hoover's website, they have the Hoover Windtunnel Platinum Canister, which is the exact same as this cleaner, but it has a height adjustment and a fingertip power switch! So talk about a good buy!
