Summary: Cannot get undamaged or working vacuum after two attempts. Comes in unmarked, plain box without any pictures that provides too little protection during shipping. As it is good rating, I will go buy elsewhere. Extremely disappointed, as this order was not at all in line with Amazon's usual quality.
Summary: After purchasing this vacuum cleaner, I did not open immediately. Once I did use it, I found the suction so strong, I could hardly push it across the carpet. It works fine on floors, but not carpet. And I am not the problem. It sometimes even lifts the carpet up. I think it could ruin your carpet. I have had others try too. My daughter works out and is very strong. She said it was ridiculous. One reason I bought it was it was lightweight...
Summary: I was pleased when I got this vacuum. It's easy to put together, has a nice long cord, and is MUCH less expensive than a Dyson. But... I have had it for 4 months now, and don't have a lot of carpet, so it's pretty lightly used. EVERY SINGLE HOSE CONNECTION HAS BROKEN APART, I have had to tape it with duct tape until I get a new vacuum. What a terrible disappointment. I just can't recommend this vacuum in any way.
Great Vacuum Suction But Lower Attachment Hose Always Breaks
Noah's Ark, Amazon
19 April 2013
Summary: The design of the motor, canister, and floor brush are great and really clean very well. However this model has a manufacturing defect in the lower hose collar that is used to disconnect the main hose from the floor brush when attachments are used. The main plastic hose is not securely attached to the latching collar and is only held on to the collar by flimsy threading of the hose wall and a little glue.
Summary: I bought this vacuum in December. After two uses the hose broke and I had to find a store that could repair the hose. Less than 3 months later the hose has once again torn off and rendered the vacuum useless. At the service center, they said they see this same problem all the time. Avoid this model at all costs.
Summary: I hadn't used the handheld suction yet and things were going fine. Finally put the box out for recycling. Then I pulled out the tube and connected it properly and went to suck up some crumbs behind a couch. The tube just came right out of the unit and I could see where it had been cheaply glued in. It guess the glue didn't work. Junk. My old vacuum lasted 10 years. This one lasted 10 days. Not great. Called Hoover customer service.
Summary: This machine broke on the FIRST use!!!! I should have read all of the negative reviews first instead of counting on the stars it's been given (boo to those who rated it 5 stars after receiving it free!!!!). The hose detached from the vacuum, just like all the other negative reviewers said. It's going straight back to amazon and I'm buying another brand!!!!
Summary: We have 3 kids and a dog so we were in need of a good vacuum. The first week it worked great but that was short lived after pieces slowly started breaking and we had to change/rinse off the filter every time. First the hose adhesive came unglued on the hose and then the hose clip/holder broke after falling backwards once...very cheaply made.
