Summary: The Hoover Linx isn't fancy, but it will clean your floors better than most of the other stick models we tested. Combine that with its reasonable price and you have one of our favorite vacuums to date.
Pros: The $179.99 Hoover Platinum Collection Linx cordless stick vacuum impressed us with its strong performance. Even Dyson's $499.99 DC59 fell short in comparison.
Cons: This model doesn't come with brush attachments or any other special features -- it's just a stick vacuum. It also doesn’t have as much character as Dyson's colorful DC59.
Conclusion: What do you want from a vacuum cleaner? If you already have a larger machine, but detest lugging out that big thing, the Hoover Linx Stick cordless is a lighter, nicer alternative for those quick cleaning jobs.
Pros: Cordless, Ultra Light at just over 7 pounds, Bagless Dirt Cup, Low profile so it fits under furniture, One touch controls for the power and brush bar
Cons: Emptying the dirt cup is messy, You have to wash the filter every time you empty the dirt cup, Awkward on stairs, No hose or on board tools, Only 15 minutes of cleaning power in the battery

Pros: Good suction power, Cleans bare floors, even up to the edges, Great to use on bare floor, rugs and low pile carpet, You can use it on pet hair, Only weighs 7.25 pounds which light for a stick vac this tall, In one online review this only recorded in at only 75 decibels so it won’t hurt your eardr...
Cons: A little too long to use on stairs, You’ll get your hands dirty cleaning the filter especially taking off hair off the baffle tube, Base can’t swivel which limits its mobility, Foam filter needs to be washed often, Foam filter doesn’t do a good job trapping dirt, Though it can reach areas below f...
Conclusion: The Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum is sometimes referred to as the Platinum Collection Cordless Stick Vac or sometimes simply the BH50010 (which is the model number).
