I just love my new Hoover vacuum and thought I should go to every apartment in my building and vacuum until my hearts content! This is the first new vacuum I've had in 30 years! Yeah!

I highly recommend AGAINST this product
By Kayla s
from Long Island, ny
My husband and I received this as a wedding gift. I honestly cannot stand this vacuum. It is nothing but a headache and complete frustration. It is extremely heavy in my opinion and does not pick up all material from the floor, carpet and bare wood. You'd think it would pick up small pieces of material...I'm not talking like giant pieces of plastic, just your usual floor dirt. It's awful. I end up having to go around my floor with a dust pan and broom to clean up remaining crumbs etc., which makes double the work for me. I know there's a tool attachment for small spaces, but when this vacuum can't do it by itself, I'm annoyed and also, it's not always in crevices that remaining crumbs are...it's all over!! It's too cumbersome to even manage and to try to maneuver to get into these spaces. Completely disappointed. The only bonuses of this vacuum include the fact that it is bag less and has a wind up cord, but usually I don't but a vacuum on the basis of that. So if you know what a vacuum is used for, don't buy this one!!!!!!!!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good, but requires rinseable filter cleaning often
Overall, at this price point, probably a good vacuum cleaner for light duty (ie in condo). The windtunnel self propelled (bagged) we use in our main home is significantly more powerful and goes a long time before needing a bag change (it is, of course, more than twice the price). I wish I had spent the extra money for the better vacuum, but still, this is OK at $100. I've had this vacuum for a couple of months. Great suction to start, then dropped significantly. Canister was about 30% full. Dumped, cleaned, still poor performance. I also noticed the connecting hose was dirty. Then checked filter - very dirty. Cleaned it and good performance returned. When started after cleaning the rinseable filter, the vacuum pulled the dirt in the hose to the canister and performance was good. Instructions on the canister indicate to clean every two months. I'm now finding that when the canister is about 30% full, dump it AND clean the rinseable filter. Bottom line: At $100, probably a good value. The filter is the choke-point for performance. In my case, it is dirty well ahead of the canister being even 50% full - and performance drops significantly. More generic to all bagless models, short of not having to purchase bags, I haven't found the advantage of bagless. True, you dump the contents, but you still have to wipe and rinse dirt out of the containers, let them dry, rinse filters (and let them dry for several hours). I'd rather change a bag and be done with it.

Great suction power, easy to use, attachments stored on machine,retractable power cord and bagless! Easy assembly.
Good news and bad news
from Verona, NY, United States
The vacuum itself seems to have great suction, however the "power" attachment does a very poor job on carpeted stairs and car seats, which, unfortunately I have a lot of. The rubber beaters are nowhere near as good as a rotating brush attachment.
very good economical vacuum

I have used it 6 or 7 times now and it does a fantastic job of cleaning the carpet for the money it is fantastic
Handle broke while pushing
By Surprised Consumer
The base of the handle broke off while my wife was vacuuming the carpet. This vacuum is less than a year old but older than the 90 day warranty. Vacuums well but just surprised that the handle broke. Also, Hoover's web site says the part is out of stock. If I can't get a part soon, I will be shopping for a new vacuum and probably not a Hoover. I would like to give it more stars because it does vacuum well, but we've had several Hoover vacuums over the years and never had a handle break. The part isn't cheap and I figure if it broke one it would probably break again.

My eureka boss is too old. I thought I should try Hoover brand. Light weight, the cord is little bit shorter, and I thought the rewind cord will be a plus. It does not always work, the very first time I used it . I can not rewind it back and end up wrap it around the handle. Second time it wound back just fine. Anyway , the vacuum is good, clean very well. I wish the hose has longer attachment so I can reach farther. Good price.
from Tupelo, MS, United States
I just went to use my Wind Pro 3 for the 3rd time and vacuumed 2 rooms and when I went to start on the 3rd room, it won't start. I checked the outlet with a fan and the fan works. I am not very happy right now but, the first 2 times I used it I was overjoyed. I am not going to be pleased if I have to return this or exchange this. Any ideas???
Wheel broke off the first time I used the vacuum!
from Alexandria, VA, United States
I'm sure that the actual vacuum works fine, but the wheel broke off the first time I used it. I can't get the wheel to stay on well, because the plastic molded part that it attaches to, is cracked and can't be fixed! I wrote to Hoover to find out what my options are, but have not heard back from them after a week!
