Summary: This is the best cordless hand vacuum there is. This is one of only two cordless hand vacuums that have a lithium-ion battery. The other vacuum is twice the price and, in my opinion, is not as good. Lithium-ion batteries have the highest energy density of all available batteries, do not have the undesirable "recharge memory" of nickel-cadmium batteries, and stay charged longer than nickel-metal-hydride batteries.
Summary: I have the Hoover Linx stick vac and it is Amazing! So when I stumbled upon this Hoover Linx I said Wow this has to be good also and it is. We bought it mainly to vacuum out the car "Black Uph" after our little Rat Terrier (white Hairs) has been in it and it does a great job. The battery last almost 20 minutes each charge and it charges fast. Now we have 2 batteries and chargers so we will never be without power! Really worth the money.

Summary: I have two LINX cordless vacuums, the stick and the hand vacuum. With two, I have the two interchangeable batteries so I always have power. I live in Florida and have cats (5) and a dog. The animals are the prime source of debris. The house and lanai are approximately 3000 sq. ft. The vacuums do a great job. I have given my two Dyson vacuums (a pet hair floor model and a handheld) away. They were too heavy and hard to clean.
Summary: I have 5 cats and a dog. My husband got me this to clean pet hair from the outdoor furniture. It is the best handheld vac ever. It effortlessly cleans ever single hair from all my patio furniture. The lithium ion battery last over a week with daily use. (2 full size couches, 1 loveseat, 3 chairs) plus all the little misc. messes. Well worth the money. The rotary powered attachment uses more energy but I have found just the brush attachment works just as well.
Summary: Not too big, not too small, not too heavy, not too light, battery made it last a few hours, with external battery it can be extended for as long as you want. The little tool bits are easy to use and purpose. A bit costly for a hand-held vacuum, but definitely worth it. I have the Linx floor model. Together with this I don't need any giant corded vacuum any more.
Summary: I've never liked those cheesy car vacs, or any other hand vacuum that "Says" has extra power... So I did some research. This vacuum is awesome! Works just like a regular one, with beater bars, and great suction... I purchased extra foam filters, so I can wash with a drop of dish soap, rinse well , squeeze almost dry, and let fully dry 24 hours. Just put another filter in and get on with vacuuming.
Summary: The main reason I bought this vacuum is for the Lithium Ion battery system. It is one of only two or three models out there with this kind of battery and frankly it is a must if you want the thing to run longer than 30 seconds before getting weak. So far, it has been a good vacuum. The attachments that come with it are quite handy: I have used both the large brush and the small brush so far. The suction is good, but the filter does need to be emptied/cleaned quite often.
