Excerpt: High powered and good durability, the weight and size are average, but it is okay in small spots beecause of large face. Battery length good, easy store but still big, extra pieces can come in handy. No big issues and didn't deal with warranty or other contractual or legal issues.
Summary: I have owned multiple Hoover products over the years and think very highly of the company. I did not buy this model at Newegg, but do buy other products here. Newegg is great to deal with, but I felt compelled to write about this vacuum cleaner when it showed up on their website.
Pros: Lightweight and quiet (main unit) - not messy like cyclone models. Bags are easy to remove and replace - no muss, no fuss. The main units does a fantastic job on carpet and rugs.

Summary: This vacuum cleaner looks fine but I returned it. It has a separate handheld duster but no other tools. I need a cleaner with a wand and tools. I am feeling burned because the return process was quite expensive.
Summary: This is the first upright vacuum cleaner I have owned. It had such great reviews that I decided to make the switch from a canister vacuum. Pros: The Hoover Platinum is reasonably light and easy to insert or remove the bag. It has amazing suction. It is a nice looking unit.
Summary: I really wanted to like this set of vacuums. I like bagged vacuums because they are much cleaner and don't get clogged filters. The upright works well, though it doesn't clean any better than any other upright I have had. It is lightweight, and has a long cord and a bright light.
Summary: I purchased the Hoover Platinum Collection Lightweight Bagged Upright and it has proven to be a very good vacuum for the price. As soon as you take the vacuum out of the box, it lives up to its lightweight name. It's a very easy vacuum to handle. The construction of it is also very solid.
