Rated 4 out of 5 by pianoplyr Great product
I really like this vacuum. It is lightweight, picks up well. We have two dogs and it does pick up the hair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JAF1960 Recommended with one caveat
I bought this vacuum after much shopping and comparing and my decision came down to the fact that Consumer Reports rated this particular model very highly. I got a great deal through JCP. When I went to assemble the vacuum the screw that attaches the neck to the unit was not the correct screw. It worked without the neck attached, the screw went into the threads correctly, but once the neck was into the slot the screw was not long enough to meet the threads. I called the 800 # on the vacuum and the young man that helped me was very courteous. He did acknowledge that occasionally there will be the wrong screw included and he is sending me a correct screw. In the mean while I used a screw from my own tool box, which worked beautifully. The vacuum lives up to everything that CR said and I really like it a lot. Easy to use and empty. So, as long as you are not taken by surprise by the possibility of a screw for a different model being in your delivered model... I can highly recommend this model. BTW, this is the 2nd Hoover I have owned, the last one worked beautifully from 1997-2012. Hoover is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cleaningkatie Would buy this brand and model again
I'm very happy with the Hoover Wind Tunnel Upright Vacuum UH70210. I am a cleaning freak and vacuum daily. We have a combination of hardwood floors lower level and carpet upstairs. We have three dogs who shed. This machine is capable of removing all the dog hair in the carpet and so far has never clogged or had decreased suction capabilities due to heavy use. Very impressed with the ease in emptying the canister too! The machine was easy to put together out of the box, has excellent suction, is lightweight and easy to maneuver. I recommend the electrical cord be longer and attached at the top of the unit rather than at the bottom. I also recommend a softer plastic material be used for the attachment hose...it is stiff and a little hard to manage. Overall I'm very pleased with this vacuum and will replace with another one if and when the time comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rralston02 I bought this vacuum back in 2010. I loved it from the minute I bought it. The suction is wonderful and never lets up. I have 3 dogs, 2 cats and a bird. I don't pick up my bird feathers like I probably should and I only vacuum once a week. This vacuum is a beast and cuts through dog hair and feathers with ease. I DO dump the container often (about 1-2 times per room) because it is on the small side and I also make sure that the little holes that lead to the filter stay clean. I have NEVER had a clog on my vacuum. It might be luck but I think it is because I have kept up with maintenance. The only issue that has recently occurred (within the last month) is with the plug, it does not want to stay out. I think that is to be expected though since the vacuum is coming up on three years old. I just put a hair clip on it and go with it. I still love my vacuum just like I did on day one and if something happens to this one I will buy another one just like it, if I find one available. I do and have recommend this product.

Use vacuum for few minutes and it shuts off due to over heating. the filter status is still green and only had a couple months use maybe 1 once a week.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MSchmigel All around good vacuum
I bought this vacuum from Amazon, so was taking a chance on it. What a great vacuum! It goes from tile(yes I vacuumed my tile floor) to kitchen carpet to pile carpet very easily and with little adjusting effort. It feels "light" on the deep pile carpet and cleans and lifts the pile very well. Yes the canister doesn't hold much and can be a bit messy to empty but, hey, it's bagless. Very satisfied. The only reason it didn't get a 5 star rating is because nothing's perfect...but it's close.

Rated 1 out of 5 Very Poor Product
I have owned this product for less than a year and this vacuum has consistently over-heated within 10 minutes since the moment I first used it. The retractable cord system has already broken and retracts the cord a quarter of the way back into the vacuum within 5 minutes of use, the hose to use on laminated floors already has a hole in it decreasing its suction power, the lever to tilt the upright handle back has jammed not allowing the roller to tilt down onto the carpet, the pet brush attachment roller has never been able to rotate due to poor power. There is so much wrong with this vacuum. I live in a 1,000 square foot condo, only half of the flooring is carpet, and my wife and I are already running into these problems! I couldn't imagine using this in a home of 1,500-3,000 square feet. I would highly encourage you to immediately look for a different product if you are looking at this review. Save your money and put it towards a better vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barnard83 Great vacuum for home and work
I bought this vacuum since I was having trouble with a much more expensive vacuum I purchased 1 year ago. This vacuum is light, easy to use, has great suction, and has great features. It is so nice to work with plus no bag. Would recommend this to anyone who wants a good vacuum at a fair price.
