Summary: Now I don't mind the vacuuming chore. The vacuum works just as described and I have no complaints. The hose for the tool attachments seems long enough until you set the vacuum for tool use. The suction is so strong it draws up the hose and you can't stretch it out the full length. If one thing could be changed in this vacuum, I'd say Hoover needs to figure out how to install a longer more flexible hose on the unit.
Summary: We love it! We have a Saint Bernard and a Border Collie so you well know that we vacuum everyday. Easy to handle, much easier to get over carpet than our Oreck, I really don't have a complaint. I do wish the bags were bigger.
Summary: Got this to replace the bagless version of otherwise same machine. Uugh - don't know what was worse with the bagless... the mess of emptying, cleaning filter, cleaning hair lodged in intake... or listening to my wife complain about that. Anyway, back to this model. After the first use my wife said (and she NEVER says stuff like this), "I'm tempted to order another one of these just in case they stop making them." All this happiness and still just four stars?
Summary: Ahhh...finally a vacuum that works. Great design. Easy bag removal - no mess, no fuss. Basically writing this so that all of my reviews are not about products I don't like (especially another company's vacuum that just plainly sucked). This vacuum, on the other hand, rocks. No, it doesn't have the futuristic transformer design factors of the other vacuum. The outer design of this vacuum is conservative - that's okay. This vacuum works.

Summary: Just received this vacuum - the first use was great. I have 3 cats and a dog who was born to shed. This vacuum did a great job in picking up pet hair and my carpet hasn't looked this good since it was shampood 3 months ago! Thanks hoover for filling the void for a vacuum which picks up pet hair like a champ!
Summary: Strong suction, great edge pick-up. I have used it several times since purchasing and I love it. It picks up all the cat hair - whether carpet or hard flooring. I would strongly recommend this vacuum.
Summary: I have really only used it 2 times but I have to say it does what it says it does! I have 3 dogs who at the moment are shedding profusely and this vacuum did a great job vacuuming the pet hair. It is a very powerful vacuum....LOL! I would make sure your dog's tail is not near it!
