Rated 2 out of 5 by MiriamF Not worth it....
I bought this upright vacuum thinking it would work on marble and wood as well as on area rugs. My cleaning lady would not use it. The few times I did, I could see why.
It does NOT work easily on rugs; it has mangled the edge of a very old rug I purchased abroad. It also does not glide smoothly on rugs.
Pick up is awful. I have to go over a spot, floor or carpet, several times and then give up and manually pick it up.
It is past the time to return; what a waste. Had I listened to my cleaning lady, I could have returned it the first week she tried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by doneshoppinghere Great product
Although I have a hard time writing reviews after the changes Penney's has gone through I did buy this vacuum and it has far surpassed anything I could have guessed...I loved my Oreck so much and after watching the infomercial about how well this vacuum was on pet hair I though I would give it a try. Do not hesitate! For the price this blows my Oreck away. When it arived I had already vacuumed the day before and I filled the entire bucket in only two rooms. After all the horror stories you hear of bagless vacuums this stands up to all of the claims of its no loss of suction...the filters were not even dirty! Do not hesitate to but this vacuum and the estra accesories that are available for pet hair help too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by vangroovy How do I clean stairs?
My friend told me that I absolutely had to have this the Hoover Windtunnel Air and they were on sale so I bought one that day. I tried it on a patch of carpet and it was awesome. The small brush attachment was great and convenient for getting the edges of the floor trim. But how on earth do you do stairs with this. I'm surprised that there's no stair specific attachment, nor can I find one on the Hoover website to buy. Based on my manual, I'm supposed to use the tiny brush attachment for stairs. Not only will this take far too much time, but the soft brush is a little useless for carpeted stairs.
I'll be returning this product but if you don't have carpeted stairs and you have time to vacuum you stairs with a two inch attachment, then it's an awesome vacuum.
It also seems a little flimsy compared to older vacuums. I've always had vacuums last for years. As a matter of fact, I didn't really need to replace the 15 year old vacuum that I had. However, this one seems like pieces will fall off of it in no time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TeddyBear48 Great Suction
I have used a lot of vacuums but none have been as easy to maneuver as this mighty little machine, don't let the size of the vacuum fool you it has great suction - yet is very easy to maneuver you can do a whole house with it and not even be tired, it seems to glide over the carpets and does an amazing job of removing all the dirt that you never suspected was actually in your carpet, to look at the vacuum it appears much smaller than most other vacuums but it does what all those other bigger and heaver vacuums does without all the excess size and bulk, in this case smaller truly is better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kittylover3 This product does a decent job.
Vacuum is light weight but only because most of it is plastic. The 3-in-1 tool arrived broken but I was able to order a replacement directly from Hoover's web site. It does pick up pet hair better than some vacuums I have had in the past but not as well as the LG canister I also have. Machine folds almost flat to fit under furniture with enough clearance for the body. The cord is ample length for my needs. The cleaning head is about 12 1/2 inches wide so it fits into some tight spaces. One recomendation: read the box it comes in. The box has more useful information than the owners' manual.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sue85 Difficult for an older person to use.
I am a senior citizen and have arthritis. I like the fact that you don't need a bag. I was hoping you could just remove the cup that holds the dirt and empty it and put it back but you have to take the vacuum apart. It is too hard for me. A younger person might manage ok. I am going to have to return the vacuum to a store when I can get a ride. I do not drive so this will be hard for me to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by music lover Great vacuum
Just got this delivered this morning and finished checking out manual. Vacuumed my med. size throw rug in my living room and can't believe how much dirt this vacuum got out of it. I live in a desert area of So. CA. and with the dirt, wind and dust, it can be a challenge to keep things clean. This vacuum is fantasic and got it on sale also. Can't beat this Hoover. Has very strong suction, so really need to stand on the carpet and pick up vacuum to go one way as it continues to pick up and will take carpet up off the floor. Had about a cup of dust in container and was so surprised at the lack of cleaning my canister did. Love this machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Spring So hart to put it back!
I have been using this one for over 6 months, and every time I always had difficulties to put the dirt cup back to the lock position. It does require lots of strength to twitst, and which I have had problem since my arm is injured.
The roller for cleaning the floor has been rolling up so many hair, I had to use screwdriver to assemble it and took out the hair. :(
Will I buy it again, probably not.
