Five Star Reviews:
Great when you know it's limitations
September 17, 2017
I just received one of these as a gift. It's a great little vacuum when used within it's limitations. Realize this isn't a replacement for your larger vacuum! The canister is simply too small and the brush roller doesn't fluff enough to really clean the carpet. However, it's great for mid-week touch ups. if you have a long-haired cat (or most any animal that sheds) you'll know exactly what I mean!
Another place this vacuum really shines is with it's size. It's very lightweight and easy to tote around the house. The end is fairly flat which allows me to get under most all my furniture. So whether it's the carpeted bedroom or the den with hardwood floors, I can get under (at least the edge of) all the furniture in these rooms without moving anything.
Now, it's clear the suction isn't anywhere near that of some larger vacuums, but I've yet to be disappointed in it. I've not noticed anything left behind. But even being "weak", the somewhat tiny canister fills up very quickly. Now per the instructions and labels, you are only to fill the canister about an 1/8th of the way up. At times, this may only take a few minutes! Once full, the canister does pop off fairly easily and dumps out without too much effort, but reinstalling can be a little tricky at first.
If you're just looking for a small vacuum to use between cleanings and for hard floors, this one is pretty hard to beat.

I've had this vacuum cleaner for about 3 years now and use it to clean my hardwoods and area rugs. I love mine so much that my sister asked for it for Christmas. It works well on hardwoods or bare floor surfaces. Also works well on low pile area rugs. It also does a great job picking up dog hair. I'm not sure how good a job it would do on wall-to-wall carpet that is a deeper pile - I still use my big vacuum cleaner for that. But like I said, it does a great job sweeping up the dirt, dust and dog hair on bare floors or low pile area rugs - and it's light weight, so it's easy to use. I'm very happy with it.
Better than Expected :]
January 7, 2017
Got this product for my Grandma for Christmas. We are a large family with 5 dogs so she was constantly sweeping up crumbs and hair from the linoleum floor and area rugs in our kitchen and dining room. It does the job better that expected and swirls all the hair right up into the easy-to-empty canister better than our larger hoover we have does; even though it has a tile floor setting. Also is very light and turns with the flick of a wrist. All around I give this product 5 stars and would buy it again.
Also, I choose this version because my Grandpa hates to have to charge vacuums, it was a little cheaper than the cordless version and the cord is long enough to not have to re-plug for most cleaning situations.
Very effective on hard floors -- terrific value
June 3, 2016
Every once in a while, a product surprises me in a good way. This is one of them. This little vacuum cleaner works brilliantly on hard floors. We have three dogs and a lot of dirt. This picks up the dirt, the sand, the hair, the mess without complaint. I have not used it on rugs. On hardwood or linoleum, it's great. Easy to maneuver. Lightweight. VERY easy to empty and clean. The cord is long enough so I can vacuum my kitchen, hall and living room without moving the plug. I've paid a lot more and gotten much less. This is a very good value and a highly effective vacuum for hard floors.
Great performance for a modest price
April 6, 2016
Wow. I am impressed. I did not expect such great performance for such a modest price. It was easy to put together, one screw. I used it on the NoTrax mat that I have inside my door from the garage and I was amazed at what my hard floor no brush vacuum had left behind. I bought this vacuum for my mats and area rugs and I am sure glad that I did. It does not weigh much more than a 5 lb bag of sugar and it is super easy to maneuver. It did well on the bare floors with the brush turned off as well. It was also super easy to dump the dirt and fur out when I was done. Unlike my hard floor vacuum where you have to detach the bottom and then lift the handle and motor to dump the dirt with this one the dirt cup comes out easily and that is all you have to carry over to the trash. I highly recommend this little lightweight vacuum. It is certainly worth every penny I paid for it.
Highly recommended for apartments, seniors, and OCD
January 16, 2012
I recently conned my girlfriend's daughters into taking my beautiful and expensive upright as a gift for the townhouse they had just rented. They were amazed by my generosity. But I knew the truth. It was a heavy clunker that I was going to avoid using whenever possible.
I still needed something more than my DustBuster for my two-bedroom apartment. I decided that this Hoover was the one to have. When it arrived, I set it up in about a minute. This involves fitting three pieces together. It's hard to get it wrong. Then I tested it on everything I could find. I sucks up junk from low-pile carpeting and area rugs without a problem. I changed the switch setting, and it did the kitchen floor of linoleum with as much ease. I was sure it would miss the edges, but it actually did a pretty good job of cleaning. I was absolutely sure it wouldn't get the kitty litter that my girlfriend's cats had left in a bathroom, but it got that, too.
True, it doesn't come with accessories, so if you want to clean drapes and sofas, something else might be better. Anyone with a smaller living space should be using one of these. A full-blown vacuum might seem nice, but in the end it's just not worth hauling one of those things around just to clean an apartment. Any senior citizen should also consider using one of these. I live in a building with a lot of seniors, and a good electric broom like this is a simple way to make one's life a lot easier. If nothing else, you don't have to call your children and make them feel so guilty that they come over and vacuum for you.
And for anyone with OCD, this little gem is a real blessing. I have OCD friends who feel compelled to vacuum five and six times a day. They keep wondering why they feel exhausted. Might as well make the vacuuming experience an easy one. This Hoover will do that. If you've forgotten to take your meds and feel an overwhelming urge to vacuum, this is the vacuum you should be using.
By the way, I got my Hoover through the Amazon Warehouse. "Like new" condition meant it WAS new, except someone returned it. They probably weren't suffering from either age or OCD. I'm cheap, so I took advantage of the 10 percent discount.
UPDATE: the more I use this vacuum, the more fond of it I become. There are two points I would like to add to the above review. First, the head of the vacuum is designed so that I can easily slide it under beds and other furniture. In practice, this makes vacuuming hard to reach places much easier. Second, the cord is long enough that I have no trouble plugging it into a centrally located outlet and reaching every corner of my two-bedroom apartment. And the vacuum is unobtrusive enough that I can prop it up next to the plug and just leave it there until I need to vacuum again. All these little things add up so that housekeeping in general becomes a much more positive experience.
I hope this helps.
LOVE this vacuum!
September 23, 2016
This is a must have if you have wood floors and pets! My husband was so annoyed with me for buying another vacuum, but he has told me several times in the past few weeks how much he loves it. We had a Dyson at our old house, but needed something for hardwoods at our new place. I seriously can't believe how great this is, especially for the price. The Dyson was so heavy and almost impossible to maneuver. This one is incredibly lightweight and you barely have to do anything. My 12-year-old is vacuuming daily...on her own. If you have kids, you know this is a miracle. But the BEST part! It works! No hair, no crumbs, not even dust left behind. We have very dark floors and no rugs yet, so there was dust everywhere. This actually picks up all the dust. It's amazing. Picks up litter, stray carpet from the cats' scratching post, everything. We really have to vacuum daily around here because of pets and renovation work, and now it isn't a huge pain. For upholstery and stairs, try their Pet Hair Eraser hand vac. Bissell is my new favorite!
Finally found the one!
April 16, 2016
I love this vacuum. I have two cats and they use the Cat Genie--if you're familiar with it, it's an awesome self-cleaning cat box. The box is amazing, but the cats track these little granules all over the place. I have hardwood floors so I find them everywhere! I also have a long-haired cat with very fine hair (Norwegian Forest Cat) so that also gets into every crack and crevice, and tends to want to stick there!These are my first hardwood floors, so I have spent a fair amount of money on different vacuums and cleaners--a lot of it wasted. This was not a waste of money! This is the one! It cleans up the hair, the dust and the granules without any problem. The cord is long enough where it's not annoying, the power is strong enough for what I need. I like the fact that the front it split so I can get the corners!Now if it would only clean the floors itself when I'm at work. ;)
A great little vacuum
February 14, 2016
This is the perfect little vacuum. I live in a small apartment with hardwood and tile flooring with two long hair cats. It's fairly quiet so I don't have to worry about using it at odd times and waking up my neighbors which is good since I work odd hours and can't always clean during normal "awake" hours. The cord is long enough that I don't have to move outlets constantly and the light build and swivel head make it very easy to maneuver. I was concerned about the suction power as my old vacuum was a beast. While this vacuum doesn't come close to the power of my old one, it's more than adequate as long as the filter is clean, a lot of that is because of the squeegie/funnel design, it's really good it picking everything up.
I was worried about the squeegie blades before I ordered it. Were they sticky rubber that would grab the floor and make it hard to push? Were they so firm that they'd catch on the small nail heads that stick up occasionally on my beat up old floors? After getting the vacuum I'm happy to say that they're a fairly medium density rubber that doesn't stick too much and is also very pliable. The continuous blade in the rear is backed by a hard piece of plastic at about half it's depth that prevents it from bending too far back and adds some stiffness, as is the center of the front blade, while the edges of the front blade can bend more freely. This allows it to be pushed over the occasional small nail heads and even my beveled door sills without getting hung up or damaged.
The only thing that this vacuum doesn't have is a detachable hose, if they ad that in a future version I'd buy the new one.

This vacuum is a LIFE CHANGER!!! Last Christmas we redid our floors. We were so so excited to get rid of our carpet and replace it with some laminate. Since we've never done this before we didn't make the wisest choose in color or finish. And we went with near black/high shine. PALM TO FOREHEAD. We have 3 dogs and a toddler. Immediately after installation we realized our grave mistake. We had a shark vacuum which we loved for the carpet but it was so freaking bulky and didn't pick up all the dust particles. I started searching. I almost bought a Roomba but I think my husband would have killed me for spending anymore money. So I read reviews for this and have it a shot. It changed our lives. This thing picks up EVERYTHING. Every speck of dog hair and dander and dryer fuzz particles. I mean everything. It's incredible. I'd pay $500 for this thing. We've had it for nearly a year and we use it every. Single. Day. Sometimes twice a day. If you're contemplating this vacuum and in a similar situation as us. Do it. You will not regret it. Your life will change! I recommend this thing to everyone who will Listen to me!! I'm now really glad we picked such terrible floors because now our house is always super clean.
This Vacuum Sucks More Than This Awful Pun!
July 8, 2015
I paid 30 for a refurbished - I actually forgot it was refurbished/used until I noticed a small scuff and then remembered that that scuff saved me $20+ bucks. this replaces a broom basically - don't expect it to do anything a broom couldn't do ( It works great on our pergo floor - picks up dog food, pet hair, dirt and dust. there are a few gripes - the red top filter; for whatever reason its a PitA to line the threads up and put back on. just needlessly difficult, always misaligned. Also, I lost suction this morning and had to fumble around with it for awhile to release whatever it was that blocked it up. There appears to be a way to take the head off so that the user could remedy any blockages but I couldn't figure it out***. Also, I feel like the tabs that the cord winds around could be easily broken if you aren't careful. Other than that, this thing has been amazing - for $30 and delivered to my home...it gets used a lot more than the swifter and a lot more economical as well as effective.
***UPDATE: SO The head piece does in fact come off - its just a little tricky. push the white tab at the base and then lift the black latch around front at the opposite side, careful not to snap it off. from there you have access to everything else! Now that I know how to do that - I'm still pretty pleased with this thing - its for light cleaning so don't over do it, but for hair and dirt its pretty great and more effective than sweeping stuff around.
Our short hair dog SHEDS LIKE NOTHING I've ever seen
October 18, 2014
O M G !
I'm a newly minted Mr. Mom of about 3 years now. (Though that is another story.) Given that I AM NOW THE ONE "Cleaning" everything in the house, I have a new found appreciation for all the stay at home Mom's. Cleaning the whole house IS THE BANE of my existence! That and a 15 year old daughter........
I'll tell you something... I don't write a lot of reviews. But this vacuum deserves EVERY FREAKING 5 Star review it gets! Our short hair dog SHEDS LIKE NOTHING I've ever seen! IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP UP WITH! Our house HAS NO CARPET. So I've been "sweeping" (DUH!) for 3 years now. I just vacuumed the bulk of what I normally "sweep" in about a 1/4 of the TIME! Plus this thing gets UNDER EVERYTHING! Along THE EDGE OF EVERYTHING! And the V shape let's you get into places that you just COULD NEVER GET TO! It has... Awesome Power/Suction... Easy as pie to use and empty! Very well built! A STEAL AT Fifty Bucks! Works FANTASTIC! The only slight negative is the power cord is just a tad short.. NO BIG DEAL! Just add a 25 or 50 ft extension cord. If you are contemplating this? Or "On the fence?" JUST GO AHEAD AND AND BUY IT! This thing is a MAJOR TIME SAVER!!! And works on ANY HARD FLOOR! I'm beyond impressed!
Four Star Reviews:
Love It - Better than my heavy Hoover
April 29, 2017
I've had this vacuum for a little over a year. My house has mostly laminate flooring with a few low nap area rugs and I use this vacuum literally every single day. I have to because there are also 7 cats who live and she'd here. Between cat hair and tracked litter, this vacuum gets a work 9ut and keeps on going. I love that it's so lightweight yet powerful. There's no problem transitioning between rugs and hard flooring. Cleaning it is a breeze except for the brush. I took one star off because the brush is hard to access to clean hair out of it. Also, where the cord attaches to the base, the rubber grommet came loose exposing part of the electrical cord; I wrapped electrical tape on it to prevent any problems with it. I really like that the canister base has only 2 parts and you can easily empty it out and then wash it. It's a lot of vacuum for a very small price.
Great little vacuum, Kids can use
June 3, 2016
This is a very good vacuum. It works great on our laminate flooring. I have cats who end up tracking litter in the laundry room and this picks up the pieces nicely. It is small, lightweight, easy to use, and picks up small items with ease. I can move it around the house with ease, and the cord (though not super long) is long enough to cover my whole living room. Granted, it isn't a huge living room, but if you have an apartment or small house then it should be fine, ours is 1600 square feet. I give it four stars only because it does have trouble in some of the corners and edges if the items are really tiny (like sugar or crushed graham cracker). I have three children also, and it is so nice to have with them. My older children (8 & 11) can use it with ease.
Know what you are buying - Not right for everyone
December 8, 2013
I love this little vacuum. However, its not a "normal" vacuum. It has no attachments and has a *!VERY!* small dust chamber. You MUST keep an eye on the dust chamber while vacuuming and empty it as soon as the dustball starts catching instead of spinning smoothly... otherwise the thing will clog up. You also have to be very careful to pick up any little pieces of paper or anything on the floor before vacuuming or it will clog up.
The first time I used this, the vacuum clogged up and stopped working before I got though a single room. I was so distraught. I had no idea why it had broken already until I read the directions and saw they say to take the head off of the vacuum and manually clean it out every time you empty the bin! It took 3 tries and a wire coat hanger to unclog the thing.
Once I understood how this thing worked, I kept an eye on the bin as I vacuumed and dumped it in the nearest trash every time it needed. It takes me about 4 dumps to vacuum my bedroom weekly (but I have 3 cats and 1 is a shedder). Since dumping the bin often enough, I haven't had to take the head off to clean it out.
Why in the world would I give this 4 stars you must be wondering! Well, I can't afford to buy an expensive vacuum and this it the most powerful vacuum I've ever owned. I bought this to replace a vacuum that worked fine but was very heavy. The first time I vacuumed what looked like a pretty clean carpet, I literally got a basketball-sized bunch of dust and hair out of a single bedroom!!! I was extremely shocked and disgusted by what my other vacuum had been leaving behind.
It sounds really strange to have to turn it off and dump the bin every few minutes when vacuuming, but it only takes a few seconds and I have trash cans in every room. If you wanted to, you could always carry a mini trash bag with you as you vacuum then tie it off and throw away all of the dust at once.
Its a minor trade-off to have an affordable vacuum that really cleans my carpets and keeps all of that dust and hair out of my air. The air in my apartment is crisper since getting this vacuum and I didn't even notice a problem before buying it. I also think I'll have to dust less often since most of the dust is going in the trash that used to just sit on my carpet and get picked up by my fan.
If you don't have the money for an expensive vacuum, don't mind the little trade off of having to dump it more often and you hate the idea of tons of dust, dirt, hair, and bacteria just accumulating in your home, this is the vacuum for you.
If you have a very large home or just want something to pick the visible bits of stuff off of your floors, you'll probably want a different vacuum.
Serves me Well!

I have owned 3 Cordless Vacuum (Ergorapidos) and I really love them ... UNTIL ... the battery starts to poop out. Then it doesn't matter how long you charge them, the charge wears out real quick. Unfortunately, there is NO way to replace the battery and you have to purchase another unit.
This Hoover Stick Vac although not cordless works very well for my needs. I have wooden floors and area rugs and it works on them just fine. NO ... IT WILL NOT WORK ON THICK PILE CARPETS ... so don't even consider it if that's what you're planning on using it on.
My only complaint (and it's a minor one) is the lack of cord length. Another 10' and it would be perfect for my needs.
Although I bought it soley (sp?) for that quick pickup and doing a room at a time, I have used it to vacuum an entire 1800 sq house and it works fine.
As it is, I rarely use my more expensive Miele vacuum cleaner which to me hands down is the best vacuum cleaner one can buy.
But for less than 100 bucks .... this thing has exceeded my expectations ..... that's just my op.
Great Stick Vacuum - Update after 4 Years of use...
February 3, 2013
This is the best investment I've made in a small, lightweight vacuum! I have owned several small, lightweight vacuums over the years and have been disappointed with them for various reasons; poor performance, difficulty in handling, clumsy bag/canister emptying, noise, etc...
I admit vacuuming is a chore, a necessary evil in keeping the house clean. I dread breaking out our existing big "Beast" for vacuuming. This vacuum is excellent! It more than meets our needs for vacuuming on a regular basis. Performance on our hardwood floors is great. For our carpet, I was impressed. After vacuuming with our Thermax (expensive water filter unit), I re-vacuumed with the Hoover Stick (brush turned ON) and was surprised at how much the other vacuum left behind!
Emptying and cleaning the dirt canister is easy, Removal and cleaning of the foam filter pad is also easy. The long cord is a nice touch and the vacuum is lightweight and easy to maneuver.
Be aware the stick vacuum requires frequent emptying, an easy trade-off for the ease in handling and performance. Dog hair, cat hair, general dirt and grass cuttings are no challenge for this Hoover, for any floor I've used it on, including hardwood, tile, vinyl or carpet.
Had to drop one star as Vacuum "bit the dust" after 4 years of service. Maybe I am too optimistic to expect 7-10 years of use, but 4 years seems a little short. HOWEVER, this is a good choice as even to it's dying day, it lived up to the expected performance with everything described in the original review holding true. Hope the identical replacement Hoover we just ordered lasts more than 4 years...
May Be Good Enough To Be Your Primary Vacuum
December 26, 2011
We bought this Hoover Corded Cyclonic Stick Vacuum about two months ago, and it has become our favorite for almost all of our vacuuming. The floors in our house are all hardwood, but we do have area rugs in several rooms. This Hoover vacuum does a great job on the hardwood as well as the rugs. It has plenty of brush action to beat the rugs hard enough to loosen dirt and pick up pet hair, and it has enough suction to pick up most any kind of loose, dirty debris on hardwood.
We bought this particular Hoover vacuum for a couple of reasons. First, it is the twin of the Hoover Linx, a battery-powered vacuum which we also own, and it is much cheaper than the Linx. We love the battery powered version of this vacuum, but it is only good for jobs lasting 10-12 minutes or so before it needs a recharge. We still use the battery powered version, but now it only gets the really quick, small jobs like scattered cat litter. The second thing that sold us on this vac was (were?) the many favorable reviews on Amazon. Everyone seemed to love this vacuum.
But as you might expect, nothing is perfect, including this Hoover. First, this thing is loud. I mean jet-engine-takeoff loud (well, almost). When someone in the house is vacuuming, conversations and TV watching stop until the vacuuming is finished, even if it is in another room. That can be really irritating. Second, the cord is short. Much shorter than you normally find on a full size vacuum. And third, the width of the area that this vacuum cleans is only about 10 inches. That means a lot of back-and-forth arm-pumps across a big area rug to vacuum it completely. But, maybe that is to be expected with a stick vac.
So, here's my bottom line on this Hoover. It does our vacuuming chores almost as well as our much heavier, much bigger Eureka Boss, but only weighs a fraction as much. Yeah, it has a couple of drawbacks, but, I would buy this Hoover again in a heartbeat.
Not THE best, but works fine and does what I wanted it to (pick up larger food/craft items on the hard floor)
December 30, 2016
I like the design for getting around legs of furniture and end edges of furniture, but it is harder to use in an actual corner. It also does not work on carpet AT ALL. It also does not pick up fine particles like glitter. I have to use my general vac for that. However, it does pick up small hard candy like MNM's and food like peas. I have had other hard floor sweepers that worked better in corners and picked up even glitter, but those were cordless and all three of them stopped holding a charge within a year. Soooo... here we are with a corded one (not preferred, but I feel it necessary after three failed cordless). Happy enough with it and didn't want to spend more money, so... happy with it for what it is.
Favorite stick vacuum for tile floor
December 10, 2016
I bought this for the tile in my kitchen and love it. The 'V" shape did take a little getting used to, but once you figure out how to use it, it works amazing for getting the edges and corners. It has picked up dirt, crumbs, larger items like popcorn and cut up pieces of paper and everything else that has ended up on my floors. The suction seems powerful. The cord length is nice and long. Cleaning it is as easy as emptying the canister. Would definitely buy again, but it seems like this is going to hold up for quite a while!
you are not going to believe it @ this $$
December 1, 2016
unbelievable vacuum for the price! I would have given it 5 stars if the cord wasn't so darn short. but that would be my only complaint. works amazingly great on my wood floors & ceramic tile floors! we live in the desert and it seems like the floors are always dirty, love this quick easy vacuum to clean them right up.
Very good but very specific purpose
April 23, 2016
It's great for what it is designed to do.
1. It DOES NOT WORK on carpeting. I mean not at all -- I am a pretty strong guy and it won't budge on medium to thick carpeting so don't even think about it.
2. It will work on flat outdoor style carpetting (e.g., runners with rubber backing).
3. It has very good pickup power on tiling. It handles errant pieces of dog food fine.
4. It is light.
5. They added additional manueverability that allows you to turn the vacuum 30-40 degrees with a flick of the wrist.
6. They added the "V" shape to the front so it gets in corners fine.
7. The thing to get the head of the vacuum down is kind of at the bottom -- you have to bend down to get to it -- which is a pain. The small things we bi*&^ch about, right?
8. Very easy to empty.
Love this vacuum for an inexpensive, light weight and quick solution for picking up dog hair
April 15, 2016
Love this vacuum for an inexpensive, light weight and quick solution for picking up dog hair. Works great on kitchen floor, picking up after my Springer Spaniel (sheds heavily). Have to get used to the rubber blades instead of brushes; doesn't work on carpet (which it's not designed to do); have a little difficulty maneuvering the edge of the vac along a straight wall as the video shows (but DOES work fine); the "V" shape really does help to gather up all of the dog hair. In addition, I did a test to determine the effectiveness of cleaning up against the bottom/sides of the dog crate - after which I swept the same area with a broom, and no extra debris. The 20-ft cord is a little shorter than some of the others, but should fit most kitchens OK. I opted for the corded model so as not to be bothered with charging, how long it's been running, etc.
Only real issue is vacuuming against the back wall under the desk - which is cumbersome and doesn't always get everything. All in all - very happy with my $50 solution.
Decent product, seems well built and has great suction - great for pet hair, but...
May 14, 2015
I bought this to replace my wife's swiffer. We have a large house with a lot of hardwood and two German Shepherds. She seems to constantly be changing swiffer pads and then having to pick up the little piles with a papertowel. She was initially excited and approved of the purchase. Unfortunately she only used it for a week and then went back to her swiffer.
The Vacuum itself is great. It swivels great to get in all the nooks and crannies, it has a long cord, and great suction and does especially well on the edges. The quality seems decent, it seems well built, I am not concerned about it scratching the floors, and like I said - it has great suction. It's a luxury item though and outside of the convenience factor, there's nothing this can do that my Kirby can't already do.
Her issues compared to the swiifer is she likes to listen to the TV when she swiffers and this vacuum is VERY LOUD especially echoing off the hard wood and the walls. She also prefers changing swiffer pads to winding and unwinding the cord and then moving the plug around when she changes rooms.
This review is for the product itself and it's a four star product. If my wife was to rate this compared to the swiffer, should give this a three star rating.
Three Star Reviews:
You get what you pay for
May 19, 2017
The old adage "you get what you pay for" applies here. It's a very low price. And it gets up some cat hair and dust. But it doesn't always get everything on the first pass. After one go through my house (2000sqft mostly hardwood and area carpets) I had to take it apart and clean out the hair that had wrapped around the brush. It doesn't have an easy access for that, so I had to get out a screwdriver. (Note to Hoover: a little lever to open that panel and access the brush would make this weekly job easier.) It doesn't have great suction, but what do you expect for under $50! It's good for touch up, but won't replace a regular vacuum or shop vac. It's also lightweight and easy to clean out the canister.
OK but needs attention after each use
June 7, 2016
Light weight, does pick up all sorts of fuzzy stuff (Toy Poodles DO shed; sigh), does not do well along borders and won't go under furniture (you need a Swiffer for that). Minuses: for some reason, the handle turns the cleaner slightly left or right whether or not you intend to do this; you have to remove the canister (took me a couple of minutes to figure out how to do this) after each use to empty it; the filter is filthy right away, not sure if it can be washed but certainly not going to purchase more of them; the rotor (rotating brush) has NO WAY of being easily detached to remove long hair or threads, you have to do this manually and using scissors. It's just ok; once a month, the old vacuum has to come out (and I now live in a one bedroom apartment, if I were still in my house this thing would have been returned).
Gets the job done
May 2, 2016
I bought this because I have a lot of dog fur on my hardwoods, and a rug in the living room. It has two switches carpet and hardwood. I thought it was working fine at first on the wood, then I noticed fur around the edges of vacuum so I lifted it up and saw that the fur was only being collect not sucked up. The vacuum has small velvet like trim that the hair was sticking to. It did do great on picking up small debris. I now use the vacuum on carpet mode on the wood, it's does not kick back anything and it allows the fur to be sucked up, it works well on my rug. Thought is would have more power doesn't pick up my dog food. Overall it gets the job done and my house has stayed cleaner and pet fur free! P.S. I bought this from Amazon warehouse for $42 with no defects!! It looked brand new, I was very impressed I will definitely buy from the warehouse again for the price!
Hoover disappoining on tile floors with fur and cat litter
August 5, 2015
Good vacuum, but I was disappointed. I did a lot of research and hoped to find "the one" vacuum for my hard floored condo. This vacuum came with mostly raving reviews, and since it is a trusted brand, I decided to give it a go. To make this review shorter, I will just list the pro and cons.
Easy to handle (I am a body able person with no disability, so this vacuum is very easy for me to carry up and down the stairs and maneuve. Weight was not something I considered when I was looking for vacuums, and this vacuum by no means is feather light.)
The pivot of the base is great. Again, refer to the point above
Has 2 settings, one for carpet (which I don't have), and another for hard floor.
Very easy to clean and disassemble/ reassemble
It looks great in my opinion. Sleek and sturdy.
It does not have a detachable hose or any apparatus for getting into small spaces.
It does not work as well as I expected. - this is the main disappointment. We have 2 different type of tile in the condo, and this vacuum works better on the one with thinner grout than the more uneven surface. Also we have 3 furry pets. The vacuum works relatively well in picking up hair HOWEVER after half of a room I would need to pick up and turn over the vacuum to manually pull out and clean the hairs/fur that's sticking to the side and the brush of the base. This need to be repeated at least 10-12 times during the cleaning process for our 3 bed 2.5 bath place (it is not a big place). So instead of all the hair going into the center dirt collection bin, about 1/3 actually are trapped to the bottom of the vacuum and need to be manually pulled out/off.
It need multiple passes to pick up small leaves, pet food derbies, and even with that, maybe only 80% are actually picked up.
It picks up only about 20-30% cat litter after multiple passes. (Of course all of my %s are rough estimates, but you get the point). For the litter, I have given up and resort instead to the broom.
It is not good at cleaning in tight corners and against wall edges. I have started to use another vacuum with a hose attachment to finish up rooms.
TL;DR: if you are looking for a only vacuum for all tile floors, especially tiles that are not squares with small seams, this is not the vacuum for you. If you are like me, need something heavy duty for a house full of pets, this is not for you. If you are looking for a vacuum for lighter (perhaps daily pickups) cleanings around the house, this is an easy to handle and cute vacuum for that.
FILTER ON THE BOTTOM UNDER THE FLOOR PLATE THAT HAS 7 SCREWS
March 18, 2014
THE VACUUM WORKS GREAT, COMPACT SIZE, STANDS ALONE, PICKS UP DOG AND CAT HAIR, WORKS IN SMALL PLACE LIKE IN OUR CAMPER UNDER THE TABLE, AIM HEAD AGAINST WALL TO PICK UP ITEMS ALONG BASEBOARD, EVEN ON THROW RUGS WITHOUT PULLING THEM UP. ITS ONLY PROBLEM IS THIS, WHEN IT WON'T PICK UP ANYTHING AND SHOOTS IT OUT THE BACK IN SMALLER PIECES. THE CLEAR CONTAINER IS EMPTY, THE SPONGE IN THE TOP IS CLEAN, THE RED TWIST CONE IS CLEAN AND IT STILL WON'T PICK THINGS UP. WHAT WE NEVER KNEW IS THERE IS AN INTAKE HOLE ON THE BOTTOM COVERED BY THE FLOOR PLATE AND 7 SCREWS. TAKE OFF THE 7 SCREENS AND THE PLATE AND LOW AND BEHOLD THERE IS THE INTAKE HOLE WHICH CAN GET REALLY CLOGGED. TRY THIS WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS AND YOU'LL BE IN LIKE WITH THIS VACUUM AGAIN :) WE WANT HOOVER TO CHANGE THE FLOOR COVER TO CLEAR SO WE CAN SEE THE INTAKE HOLE AND USE LESS, LESS SCREWS. IF THIS WAS FIXED, WE'D GIVE THIS VACUUM 5 STARS. HAVE USED OTHER BRANDS AND REALLY LIKE THIS ONE INSTEAD OF OUR LARGER CANISTER MODEL.
Great for pet hair pickup but not so great for the user's lungs.

It's more than okay in terms of power, and how well it picks up all my long-haired cats' fur that tends to drift around the place, as well as all the shredded stuff off their scratching posts. It's also not too terribly loud, and I live in a partially adobe, fully stucco'd house with all ceramic tile floors that turns everything into something 2-4x louder than it feels like it should be.
I also had no problems with using it along wall edges, the weird-shaped head seems to really do its job well, and it IS super lightweight which is also very nice.
However, despite using the microlined filters and so on, it really releases a lot of very fine dust back into the air, and the exhaust, placed as it is pretty much on the front top of the vacuum, means that as you're following it along, you're walking right into everything it has expelled at around face level, especially if you aren't terribly tall.
And worse, if you bend forward, like to real quick shove a curtain out of the way or something, it pretty much is right up in your face. This might not be too terrible for people not living in desert environments where there is a lot of fine dust, but it had me coughing and wishing I'd put a face mask on before using it, and I'm lucky nothing got in my eyes. I'm positively ill even a good fifteen minutes later and coughing from all the fine dust I inhaled, and my house smells like a sandstorm.
Not crazy about it
July 30, 2016
I bought it because of all the great reviews it had. A testament to: just because it's popular doesn't mean t's as good as people claim. The vacuum is good at picking up dirt/dust wherever you run it, but it doesn't pick up any surrounding dirt as the advertisement states the V look should do. I try to vacuum the corners and edges of my apartment and it does not pick up any of the dirt. I have to follow up with a broom which is what I was trying to avoid. The vacuum would be better if it had an extension to pick up dirt in the hard to reach places. I do use it on ceramic floors.
Maneuvering Difficulty Negates Power
September 17, 2015
This vacuum was almost a great idea, but someone needs to go back to the drawing board and work out a better overall design. It does have three great features: (1) powerful suction—surprisingly powerful for a lightweight stic vac, actually; (2) a V-shaped head for angling around corners; and (3) squeegee type flaps on the bottom instead of a beater bar (rolling brush) to help pull in loose dirt, hair and debris. The problem is, the latter two features actually work against each other, making it very difficult to maneuver.
The V-shape of the squeegees on the bottom causes the vacuum to skid rather than move smoothly. I have to pivot the handle sideways and vacuum at an angle just to get it to glide correctly in one direction (which gets aggravating, and is taxing on the wrist). Then after about two or three strokes, I usually have to lift it up and place it back down on the floor in the direction/angle I need it to go.
The powerful suction does *somewhat* compensate for the lack of maneuverability, but not enough so that I would recommend buying this vacuum. What good is power if you can't move the vacuum around?
The wheels are made like they were meant for a toy
August 30, 2015
Used it just a few times so far. It does pick up the dirt and dog hair well, but its just seems very cheap. The wheels are made like they were meant for a toy, which makes absolutely no sense to me for a vacuum of this type. The noise from the cheap wheels and rubber front end scraping on the floor make it sound like I'm scratching it all up. It also makes the maneuvering more awkward - not smooth at all. I've reached down more than once to check the surface of the wheels to make sure the outer rubber layer on them is sufficient to keep from scratching the floor. I suppose it is, but its very thin, and on very cheap plastic wheels.
I've also realized that it's difficult to get under couches and other furniture with it because you cannot vacuum straight up against the wall with the front end. I have to move the couch to get along the edge of the floor by the wall. Not sure yet if I'm going to keep this one.

Good power given its lightweight.
Convenient to grab and go compared to a full sized upright. Gets small crumbs better than a broom.
Sucks up moderately dense, 1/2" sized dry food pieces when they reach the center of the head, but they sometimes have to be encouraged by hand. Larger pieces don't fit.
The edge cleaner gets small stuff well, better than our upright.
The right side wheel (when viewed from the perspective pictured) does not roll freely. It has loosened up with use but still occasionally binds and impedes pushing and pulling motion.
The "V" shaped head prevents cleaning the floor completely up to the baseboards when pushing it perpendicular them. This requires a second pass parallel to the baseboard. This requires extra motion and time and is aggravating.
Not as maneuverable as we would like. It has a large turning radius.
The cord is too short. We have to unplug and move to the next outlet to finish vacuuming.
We wanted something that would replace a broom and dustpan but would be more convenient that lugging out a full sized vacuum. This does fit that need; we leave it out ready for service in a corner in the pantry making it easy to grab and go. We had recently purchased the PowerFresh steam mop and were impressed enough with its performance to stay with the Bissell brand. Unfortunately this vacuum does not impress.
We have many small areas that require easy maneuverability to get too. Our bare floor attachment on our upright glides easily over the hardwood on bristles making this task easy. This vacuum has rubber on hard plastic wheels. It does not glide or move easily laterally. To cover the area immediately to the right or left of the head requires the user to retract the vacuum toward oneself and the push it away toward the area one wants to cover. This may not seem too much of an inconvenience but when there are a lot of small areas like this cover, it becomes a time consuming chore.
The "V" shaped head works as advertised to direct dirt toward the center of the vacuum head where it can be sucked up. But this only works well in large areas. The user has to push it forward several feet to get large crumbs into the center. What happens when one runs out of floor space? One has to bend over and push it by hand. Our upright's bare floor attachment doesn't blush at an oncoming wall. If it has not gotten it by the time it reaches the wall, it will get it at the wall by covering it and concentrating its suction power on the offending debris. The upright's bare floor attachment is straight, not a "V" design. This vacuum can leave them at the baseboard and requiring a parallel pass to get them.
Despite these few gripes, it still works well enough to find a place in our home.
Two Star Reviews:
It is lightweight and easy to use
September 10, 2017
I bought this vacuum based on the positive reviews. It is very weak and struggles to pick up anything heavier than dust. It is lightweight and easy to use, but it won't get your house clean at all. It is really useless on bare floors. It does a little better on carpet. I don't recommend this vacuum.
Great at first...
November 30, 2016
I loved this vaccum at first! It picked up everything, was easy to empty,great with hair! And it's so light. Would be perfect for people with back problems and the elderly. However I've had it a year now recently it's decided to not fully suck everything up so when your done and you turn it off all of the dirt falls back out! It's SO annoying!! I have to get my broom out to sweep up the pile left...so it's kinda pointless! (I have majority hardwood and some carpet)
Not the greatest suction but decent
July 6, 2016
I think this works decently for wood floors. Not the greatest suction but decent. If you have heavy objects (I.e. Small rocks from your shoes, debris, etc) it struggles to lift them off the floor. It is nice that it doesn't kick the debris that it can pick up behind the vacuum. I wouldn't buy it again if I had the choice.
April 1, 2016
I have been using this for quite a few months now and it has some flaws. I have 3 dogs and when you set it for hardwood the hair clogs up so bad on the roller that you have to stop every few minutes and clean the roller out or it drops big clumps on the floor. Same thing on carpet. The other thing that is extremely irritating is that the dirt and hair goes up into the top portion and wraps itself around the cylinder. There is only one spot where you can get in (with tweezers and two fingers) to pull it all out. Usually takes around 15 minutes to clean it out because it is so difficult. I dump the dirt cup the minute it starts to look full so this is not a result of waiting too long. I bought the corded model because it would have more suction but it is not even real good at picking up dirt without hair being involved. I vacuum with my large Hoover twice a week (love it) so my problem is not caused by trying to use this as a regular vacuum. The filter is easy to clean and the cord is nice long but I am not real pleased with the product and I hate to say that because I have always bought Hoover.
September 17, 2014
Purchased this only 4 months ago for my daughter's tiny efficiency apt. after much research and reading many reviews. I have owned many Hoover's over the years and was expecting quality. I was looking for something compact, yet powerful and efficient on both hard surfaces and low pile carpet. It does a good job as far as suction. However, construction is poor. The internal spring on the button that holds the removable dirt cup onto the vacuum has popped off (it is visible through the clear plastic but inaccessible because it is one solid sealed part) so it will no longer attach to the vacuum. It has been removed no more than a measly 5 times since I bought it. I called Hoover and was informed THAT was NOT a covered warranty part and it would be 28.00 to replace the dirt cup.... 1/3 of what I paid for the entire vacuum 4 months ago... Ridiculous, but stuck between a rock and a hard place.. I now have an almost new vacuum that I've had to strap the cup on to with rounds of tape. That's the only way it can be used at all until the part arrives in 7-10 days. I've read other reviews that have had the same issue. POOR DESIGN, POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE/WARRANTY. I would not recommend.
**UPDATE** My daughter has had this vacuum in her efficiency dorm apt. for 2 years now.. It is great in terms of space saving and initial suction is good when empty. However it is HORRIBLE in terms of requiring CONSTANT MAINTENENCE for suction. The small dirt cup requires continual emptying but most importantly the inner cylinder is quickly wrapped with hair/debris (paticularly if you have long hair, and/or a pet..She has a small short haired puppy that sheds minimally) during each use, requiring disgusting hands on removal each use or there is little vaccuum suction and is a waste of effort.
Just ok....probably should have returned it.
May 24, 2017
I had high hopes for this vac. Its not very powerful, emptying the canister is messy and you have to do it every time you vacuum because the canister is too small. It does pick up cat hair...but just so-so on regular dirt and debris on hardwood floors. It barely picks up the 1/2 eaten cat food nuggets that my cats drop next to their bowls. It's fine for a quick touch up to ke it look like you cleaned more recently than you did...but can't replace my broom and dustmop...which was the whol point of owning one.
Really tried to like it but ended up disappointed.
January 21, 2017
I bought this about a year and a half ago and have really tried to like it. Thought I would like the v-shape base feature that allows it to go into corners but it just hasn't measured up. It just doesn't have enough suction to pick up everything and stuff like cat food just seems to get pushed around until you literally pick up the vacuum and put it over the stuff. Cat and dog hair gets caught up in the plastic guides on the bottom and again, you have to pick it up to get it to suck up the hair. Tried to vacuum up some spilled talcum powder the other day and it just wouldn't do the job. Just don't think it has enough suction.
Sincerely disappointed with the vacuum. Think I'm going to order a straight hard floor vacuum without the plastic things on the bottom and without the "V" shaped base.
I Still Had To Pull Out The Big One
January 3, 2016
Ok, so here's the deal. I bought this to pick up dog hair in between my regular vacuuming. This is not going to replace a broom or a regular sized vacuum. With that said, it does pick up dog hair. Anything heavier is left behind. Also, the "V" shape floor piece makes it impossible to get up close to the wall when pushing forward. You have to do a quick twist of your wrist to try to get close to the wall, turning the unit left or right. I don't find this practical. I'm also not so happy with the design for the exhaust. It blows out in front, blowing the dog hair away from the unit and stirring it up into the air.
If you already have a vacuum that has a beater bar you can turn off for floors and attachments, just use that. Chances are-- if you have dog hair on the floor it's also on your shelves, TV, cable box, furniture, etc...
This product didn't help me with vacuuming dog hair. I still had to pull out the big one... and for that, I cannot recommend this product.
For the first 4-5 months I absolutely loved it. The v-shaped head took a few minutes ...
July 25, 2015
I have owned this vacuum now for almost 8 months. For the first 4-5 months I absolutely loved it. The v-shaped head took a few minutes to get used to, but it quickly became my favorite feature of this vacuum. I feel a little spoiled by it now and can't imagine using a flat head vacuum again on my hard floors...it's fantastic for vacuuming around furniture legs and corners.
However...for the past 2-3 months, the suction has just greatly diminished. I empty the canister and clean the filter after every single use...so it's not a problem of anything clogging up the vacuum. It just seemed to continually diminish over a few weeks and now the suction is so light that it will only suck up dust and dog hair that it directly passes over, rather than pulling it in from the sides a bit. This makes for a lot of extra time vacuuming with having to cover every square inch of floor. The first few months of use...I could run it into tight spaces and it would literally suck my dog's hair into the vacuum head...now the tight areas have to be broom swept into the open floor areas in order to vacuum up. For me...it's turned what was once a very impressive little vacuum into a vacuum that feels more like a chore to use on an already undesirable chore (vacuuming).
I don't feel like the suction should be diminishing on a vacuum after such a short period of time and only used a couple times a week...so for me it feels like a bit of a waste of money. Although I really love the v-shape head...I can't see buying another of the same one when I finally give in an purchase another vacuum.
The angle is more of an inconvenient than a benefit
February 18, 2014
As a mom of several rescued dogs that shed year round and live indoors, including two golden retrievers, I was really looking forward to this purchase to help me deal with the madness of living in pet hair. First of all, to be fair of the task at hand and my expectation of the vaccuum, while the dogs do shed tremendously we sweep daily and vaccuum regularly so the floor is typically clean but with the inevitable clumps of hair that form and fly around daily. While the idea of the angle was appealing, I do not like this vaccuum at all; the V shape is more of an inconvenience than a benefit. Picture the V angle, and note that the suction is at the base of the V only and not the "legs", which means that every time you reach a wall the "legs" reach the wall first and prevents the suction from reaching the edge. Therefore to clean along the edge of the wall you have to vaccumm alongside the wall, not facing it, which is inconvenient and not possible in tight spaces. Also where the V should be more useful, such as around furniture legs, if there is hair slighly caught under the furniture it does not suction enough to vaccuum it so I find myself pulling the hair from under the furniture to be able to vaccuum it. As to the overall suction aside from the angle, it does not suction clumps of hair that well unless the suction goes over the clump directly. Also the cord is pretty short, so you will likely not be able to vaccuum more than 200 square feet using the same socket, so a longer cord would be a plus. I decided to keep it to avoid the return shipping cost but unfortunately it does not meet my expectations.

I've only used this six times, and the motor crapped out on me. I'm very disappointed, Hoover is supposed to be a top of the line product. Now I have to contact the company to have them do right by me.
May 7, 2017
I can't imagine who would give this a 5 star review. It has no suction power AT ALL. After going over the same spot on the lanai over and over and over and having it just not pick up anything, even loose stuff, I am tossing it. Even though it "works" (i.e is not broken) it is so worthless that I don't want it to take up the storage space.
Vacuum cleaner has already had a price reduction since I returned it!
May 7, 2017
Amazon very good about return. I was very disappointed in this vacuum cleaner. It weighed 10 lbs. and was too difficult to use with Fibromyalgia! It had a loud sounding suction as though it was picking up everything, however it didn't! It picked up dust, but the tiniest crumb would be left. Large head didn't go smoothly around furniture.
if you want to get the job done quick then don't buy this one
April 6, 2017
its almost a year now, I like the vacuum until now, it gets over heated and vacuum only vacuums only for 15 minutes before it gets over heated, I have to stop wait for a few hours and try to see if it works it does, it is only good for 15 minutes of vacuuming, you have to let it cool down, not good for customer satisfaction do you agree
It worked great for a few months
March 25, 2017
I bought this vacuum a few years ago with high hopes. It worked great for a few months, but I have had problems with it ever since. It constantly clogs and I am always trying to clean it out. The brush is always packed with hair and fur and needs constant cleaning as well. Would NOT recommend.
(It worked great the first several uses
January 26, 2017
This vacuum cleaner quit picking up dirt after approximately 7 light uses. (It worked great the first several uses, but then began spitting out dirt.) I cleaned the filter and brushes, and followed all suggestions in the brochure, to no avail. I have tried calling Hoover 3 times, but have been put on hold for 10 minutes each time, so Hoover apparently does not provide customer service. I got this vacuum for very light, occasional usage primarily on hard floors; i.e., it has not had any heavy usage. This will be my last purchase of anything made by Hoover.
Pass on this one!
April 21, 2017
I bought this because of the positive reviews - should have returned it right away but thought I was just being fussy and needed to use it a while and get used to it. NOT. In a busy household this is way too small and not nearly strong enough suction. Difficult to tilt from upright position into usable position. If you have a one room apartment with little dirt maybe this will suit you. Otherwise run away!
I do NOT recommend. Mine broke after just a few weeks, less than ten uses.
November 25, 2016
I used this less than ten times. For no reason at all, the head broke free from the canister unit. Since this happened shortly after my return date, both my husband and I tried in vain to repair it but it's proven impossible. I am extremely disappointed.
I know this gets great ratings still
June 6, 2016
I've owned this vacuum for a year now. I had originally given it five stars shortly after purchasing it. I've downgraded it to three. Frankly, it just doesn't pickup anything anymore -- dust, kitty litter, sand, and dirt tracked into the house. I've cleared out the filters and the suction hasn't improved at all. I know this gets great ratings still, but it wasn't money well spent. I'm looking at other options for hardwood floors.
Broke just after a year and outside the warranty repair period.
Don't waste your money.
March 8, 2014
Bought this because I have all hard-surface floors and a dog and most of the reviews seemed to be favorable. At this price I didn't expect it to be great quality but it's a piece of junk -- seems like everything is cheap plastic. It's very noisy. It's bagless but it sucked dog hair up into an area above the dirt canister and it's very difficult to remove -- I had to use a little shrimp fork to reach up through a very small opening and pull the hair out! It's totally useless along baseboards and actually unusable on the stairs. Even though it's lightweight it's exhausting trying to maneuver it around the floor -- the head is sort of floppy and seems to go where it wants to go. You have to keep picking it up to shift its position. If you try to vacuum under furniture, the head usually gets stuck and falls off. When it's right on top of something the suction seems to be adequate but it also has a pretty powerful exhaust that's down low on the front (!) and while the vacuum is trying to pick up the dog hair, the exhaust is blowing it around. Do not waste your money on this vacuum.
Inadequate, poorly built, breaks easily, another unhappy "broken handle" customer here, folks!
August 2, 2013
Suction-smuction. Everyone is talking about the great suction. Are any of you paying attention to the notably many issues about the handle breaking off?
Well, trust me. The machine may pick up some dog hair, but it's a cheaply built, slipshod, weak-jointed tool and so please do not waste your time on this. I lost the handle on the second use. I have a small, light-duty bare-floor 900 sq ft area that i need to occasionally sweep. I thought this guy was going to do it. Boy, was I wrong. I am easy on machinery; nevertheless, the handle snapped right off at the screw moulding down inside the base. One reviewer said that he used duct tape after his second machine broke, but that is not good enough. Bissel, you just lost yourselves a customer --and a vociferous one at that. You stuff stinks, plain and simple. Don't ever darken my doorway with your lame products again.
As to my next move, sweep-wise? I will pick something else and let you know how it goes with that one. Hopefully Hoover or one of the other companies
understand (unlike Bissell) the meaning of "durability"
