Summary: This is a great portable vacuum. The battery does last a nice long time. I usually keep it in the charger when not in use to ensure it is fully ready when I need it. The only hard part is getting the container off the machine when emptying it. It does take a bit of muscle to twist it off.
I need help to get the dirt container off every time! Slippery and nothing to grab. What was Hoover thinking?!!

Summary: The product runs well, isn't excessively noisy, and it picks up everything with ease. The main concern I had before purchasing was the size, long design and weight as my hands are small. That wasn't really a problem. It is heavy, but not overly so. And the unit seems well-balanced.

Summary: I chose this LINX hand vacuum because I have the Hoover LINX stick vacuum. I love the stick vacuum, and the batteries on both are interchangeable. This is a huge benefit, if you also own the stick vacuum.
A decent vacuum that costs about twice as much as it's worth

Summary: This vacuum has decent suction but not great. The running time per charge is shorter than one would expect for a lithium ion battery - just a few minutes. As other reviewers mentioned, you have to remove the battery to charge it.
Summary: Obviously, I bought this because it said "PET" in the description, and I wanted to be able to pick up pet hair - both that flying around on non-carpeted floors (as it does) and furniture. I'll give you this: the vacuum is lightweight, well made, and has great attachments.
Summary: First of all, after buying the LINX standup vac I was blown away by the power it had. So, I decided to jump back on board and get this as its companion. Well, the brush accessory that is powered works wonderfully. However, normal dustbusting without the accessory was just average.
