Excerpt: Came with a small carry( canister) vac as well. I thought that the upright would at least have a removable nozzle for crevices, but it didn't. So, I guess that's why you get the other little vac. Seems like more work to me, so I just have my kids do it. We call them their vacuums. I can't complain about the quality because they both work really well. The bags are nice and filter really well. Hard to find in stores, so I just ordered a lot on line.
Summary: Love the two vacs but wish the dust brush attachment were a little larger, softer, and more pliable to be more effective in dusting baseboards and carpet next to baseboards. Also, since I bought these vacuums from Walmart, you'd think Walmart would carry the replacement vac bags! Nope! Walmart does not carry the Type Q or Type I in the store nor online! That's hard to believe! Come on, Walmart! If you believe in the vacs, then carry the replacement bags!
Excerpt: FINALLY found a vacuum that PICKS UP THINGS from my carpeting...after buying, and returning, another model of Hoover, and a highly-rated Shark. Lighter weight, so easier to handle. Price at ABT was reasonable. The only thing I would recommend to Hoover is that this vac needs a more modern LOOK..its fabric bag and dreary coloring makes it look like something from the 1940's!
Pros: Lightweight, Long Power Cord, Powerful/Good Suction
Summary: We've gone through numerous vacuums and all seem to have some type of downside. The Hoover Platinum UH30010COM seems to have the best blend of features and value that we have experienced. The two vacuum design (one standup and one portable) is a great convenience and optimization of features. This allows the upright to be very light (at 11 lbs it is almost 50% lighter than most uprights). The portable is very convenient for tight spaces and especially the stairs.
Summary: Shopped for a while for a vacuum and this beats all unless you want to spend around $500. Only down thing I see is there's no controlling the height for the carpet. Must be self-adjusting while I do prefer to control this, especially on longer nap, but not a problem.
Summary: i just received that vacuum from "Better deals" The only complaint I have, is in the description it said it was on the original packaging. And it was not. Other than that. It just has a sticky spot where a sticker seems to have been removed.
Summary: First the negative: The little hand held vac is kind of difficult to get used to as I wear it like an oversized bag on my shoulder which makes it louder and the exhaust blows out rather hard which can remove papers from a desk so use with caution. The upright works very well on carpet but since you can't stop the spinning brush that flings dirt from tile more than it actually sucks it up into the bag. I use the hand held vacuum for hard surfaces.
