Summary: Honestly, I didn't even get a chance to use this vacuum - my husband did. He didn't even use it but for a few minutes before we realized it was taking the twist right out of our carpet! Had we not had twisted carpet, this probably would be a great vacuum. It has so much suction power that as I watched my husband vacuum the floor, I could see the carpet pull up from the floor to the vacuum!
Excerpt: This vacuum is so easy to use that I really don't mind vacuuming. My other one which is not self propelled is so hard to use. And I hate emptying the bagless container. I much prefer the bag which is so much more sanitary.
Pros: Easy To Empty, Easy to Use, Efficient, Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: I was using a bagless, non-self propelled. I didn't like the bagless feature and I didn't like having to push the old one. This one is great. Haven't had a chance to use it much but it appears to be just what I wanted.
Summary: This was a gift to our daughter.Purchased a similar vacuum two years ago through Hoover for our own house. Color different but basically the same vac. Wanted a bagged vac, didn't want to see the stuff churning around and round. Self propelled a good feature because of high pile carpet. Long cord reaches from room to room. Does a good job and the brush stops when the handle is upright.
Summary: My first one lasted 15 years, so I had to buy another one. The first one was green this one is blue. The new blue one seems to work just as good. The only thing I would change is the hose, I wish it was longer to do the whole staircase (like the green one was). Still Very happy with this one. I love the bag, no mess just throw it away and move on. Self propelled is the only way to go. I would recommend this vacuum.
Summary: I've used Hoovers for quite some years and love it. It does a remarkable job. Especially liked the price, ease of ordering, etc through Walmart.com. This is about my third order and so far so great!
