Summary: It blew all the papers that I had on the end tables all over the floor. It also ruined my rug by the back door. It sucked it up, in the middle of the rug, onto the roller and melted the fibers before I could shut it off. I really wanted a bagged vacuum and am very disappointed. Not many out there.
Summary: I got home with my purchase, set up vac and starting vacuuming. It seem to be great. Vacuumed a 12 x 12 rug and then moved onto bare floor. Pressed leaver to disconnect power brush and... broke. Leaver, instead of staying down popped up and brush continued rotating. All resistance to leaver being pressed down was now absent. Returned vac and bought Shark instead. Shark works great!
Summary: It took a bit to get used to using the vacuum - they could use better instructions, but overall it does a great job and the bags hold a lot of debris. I have vacuumed both upstairs and downstairs twice and have barely used up half the bag capacity. I really love the bag fill indicator. I am pleased with this machine and recommend it.
Summary: I have used my new Hoover UH30600 for a few weeks now and very pleased with the performance. Since I have be married 47 years I have had a 2 Electrolux canisters which I wore out, and 2 upright Euraka uprights (which I would not recommend to any one even if the cost was 5 cents). Consumers Report had them rated best for a long time and I have no idea how they were tested but it makes you wonder.
Summary: I got this to replace my dirty, heavy, clumsy bagless Eureka with the irritatingly unflexible removable hose for tool attachments. The Hoover UH30600 none of those things and is every bit as good at removing dog hair, too. I'm glad. I'd give it five stars if it was about 10 decibels quieter.
Summary: This is the second Hoover of this model that I have purchased in the last few months. The first was for our second home and based on the service of that vacuum, I ordered the same one for our permanent home. I think it is well designed. We have three cats and it was ranked "very good" for picking up cat hair and it lives up to the ranking. I think it is easy to use.
