Rated 5 out of 5 by Anna Great buy!
I really love this set. The larger one is easy to maneuver and the smaller one is so lightweight. They both do the job!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Maureen D Handle Broke in Half
I bought a Hoover platinum upright wind tunnel a few years ago. My first Hoover I bought was the low end model and lasted at least 15 years so I decided to buy this one to replace it. I absolutely loved the vacuum. It was super light and picked up like a champ. I told all my friends they should get one. Then about 2 years in it just stopped working. After about 2 months I received a replacement through a local dealer. In the meantime I had to borrow one to clean my house. I didn't think the service was the best but they did eventually replace the product. A couple of years later (today) I was vacuuming and the handle broke right in half. I love the vacuum but it doesn't seem to last very long. I only vacuum once or twice a week and have no kids or pets and my house is 1500 square feet. For the price I payed I would expect this vacuum to last longer. I am very disappointed in the product. Sorry to say since I was always a hoover lover in the past. I wish I had my old one back. It was cheap and worked for over a decade!

Rated 5 out of 5 Great design, Light Weight, Easy to use
Absolutely love the product......... Quiet (maybe not whisper quiet) but does have the low setting that won't wake the house. Automatically adjusts to any floor setting. The Best feature is that it automatically shuts off if there is the wrong kind of resistance on the beater bar... say you suck up a piece of string or frayed carpet, it shuts off for you to unwrap the string off the beater bar without burning up a belt. When you are ready, just hit the power button and start vacuuming. Very light weight. EXCELLENT suction. I have two full time dogs and several family member pets that visit a lot all of whom are "shedders". This takes care of it great. I can go from berber to shag to wood floors without adjusting anything. When I hit a delicate area rug I just have to turn it to the low setting on the handle with the electronic push button. The cons- the bags are a little pricey, but those should start going down in price as more than just hoover start to manufacture the type Q hepa bag.

I love this vacuum as much as the day I purchased it! It is lightweight, powerful, and easy to clean. There's no dust when changing bags because of the HEPA filtration bag. It cleans like a dream. There are no attachments to fumble with. There is a second small, powerful, over the shoulder vacuum for cleaning crevices, baseboards, and hard surfaces. I don't understand the poor ratings for no attachments since the box is clearly marked that there are 2 machines! No wonder it was top rated in Consumer Reports!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Denise22 Love it!
I have owned this vacuum for 8 years and absolutely love it. It is lightweight. Making it easy to take up and down stairs. I have a long haired dog and 3 cats and it does a good job picking up hair on the carpet and the wood/laminate floors. I will purchase this model again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by melinflorida Love this vacuum & husband loves the portable one
This vacuum is so easy to push across the floor. It adjusts to our various floor heights and is pretty quiet compared to our last Wind Tunnel. I also like the fact that the cord comes out at the upper part of the sweeper, rather than down near the floor. My husband loves the canister vacuum for sweeping out the cars. It has great suction and is lightweight to carry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Vaqumqueen Love it but.....
I have had the Hoover - Platinum for several years. Very lightweight, easy to use on the stairs and great suction! Recently I noticed my cord has been compromised by rubbing it up against furniture and now the power is intermittent and therefore unusable. This has never happened to any vacuum I own so I wonder if the cord covering could be a little more durable in the future. I needed a vacuum so I got a Kenmore canister that came highly recommended on Consumer reports. Loved it for 2 weeks but still not as maneuverable as the Hoover. Then their cord refused to retract (a feature that is wonderful - only if it works or can easily fix - neither the case for the Kenmore!) so I returned it. I just bought another Platinum and wanted to purchase a new handle cord - even though it is more than half the price of buying another Platinum! But they are out of stock. Please let me know when you will be getting more in. I brought it to an authorized dealer and he tried to convince me to buy another vacuum he had in stock. Not a good experience even though I am a fan of the vacuum overall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by queenmaid Powerful little vac
After looking at least a dozen other different types and brands, I finally decided on this vaccuum, I prefer bagged for no fuss disposable of the dirt and I like the easiness of changing this bag. Also I noticed that there is absolutely no dust puffing from this vac, like my old vaccuum did when I started it up.
I am pleased with the performance and ease of use. It has a long cord and I only have to plug in to one wall plug for my small apartment.
I like the small size of the bonus canister vac and the shoulder strap (detachable). The disposable bag in it is very easy to remove and replace, again no more fussing with dirt, love it.
