Summary: I bought this vacuum because of the reviews stating how well it worked for pet owners. And wow, I used it one time after regularly vacuuming with my previous vacuum to realize how filthy my house was. It is light & easy to use.
DO NOT BUY THIS VACUUM - if the small, plastic, weak, attachment hose clip breaks, the whole vacuum is usless

Summary: I had this vacuum for around one year when the part that holds the attachment hose in place broke off. This means the attachment hose will no longer make an air tight seal and the vacuum lost all suction.
Summary: Buy this instead of a dysentery. I had a $500 dysentery that screeched in "carpet" mode and it was sooo heavy. This Hoover works perfectly. It is loud, but is there a quiet vacuum? I think this is a bargain.
Great suction, but brush does not work well for long.

Summary: Up to 1 year: Worked well After 1 year: brush roll stopped working properly. This has a major impact on carpet cleaning. After 1 1/2 years, the brush stopped working completely. Suction remained and is still super. Tried everything to get the brush spinning again (new belt, etc.).
Summary: I'm embarrassed to say that my house has been a disgusting nightmare. My little dog sheds enough hair to form puppies out of and this vacuum has completely sucked all the hair off the rugs and of course all the dirt and disgustingness that was in the rugs.
Summary: This vacuum worked great for about 2 months. The pet hair attachment worked 2 times and then stopped working. We pulled the vacuum apart and cleaned it. Afterwards, the pet attachment worked 1-2 times and has not worked since then.
Summary: Auto cord rewind! Bagless! Powerful suction, good attachments, nice look, fold-down handle, stop-roller feature, excellent filtration, not too heavy, and yes, I'll say it again -- auto cord rewind!
Pros: For this mid-range price, this vacuum packs a TON of great features I require.
Cons: Not all the features I WOULD like, but for the price, I bought it anyway!
Summary: This is a light weight vacuum. Pushed easy on carpet and has a beater bar shut off for hard floors. However, I will not pick up crumbs and grit from hard floors unless the hole on the vacuum is sitting directly over the dirt. Be sure and read reviews on other sites also.
Summary: I was disappointed by Hoover on this vacuum. I wouldn't recommend it.
Pros: Great vacuum for hard and carpet floors. Easy to clean
Cons: Poor lifetime on this vacuum. Only had for 1 year and it started with weird noises and the belt kept slipping off the motor rod. Wasn't worth taking to shop and having them tell me that "yes, it is slipping off rod" and yes, I used the same replacement belt recommended by the manual.
