When my Electrolux Aptitude finally died, I replaced it with this Hoover after researching. I rely heavily on Consumer Reports. I wanted something decent that wouldn't cost me a fortune. With two adults in the house and no pets, this upright works great and is easy to adjust to the various carpet heights throughout the house. It's also easy to turn off the roller brush for hard floor sweeping. The other thing is it's light enough that I can carry it upstairs to take care of those floors. While there are a couple small changes I would make to where everything is located on the machine, I am pleased with this vacuum. I've had it just shy of four months.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MimiandButters Perfect vacuum for my family
I was on a long search for a vacuum that suited my budget and the household needs. I have a dog and a cat and heavy traffic flow. We previously had a bagless vacuum but I did not like it because it would blow dirty air back out and not hold in all the pet hair and did not have great suction. If you have a pet hair problem in your home, I would definitely look into a bagged vacuum. It helps with the allergies and usually bagged vacuums have a bigger suction hole to suck up all the dirt/hair. My only complaint would be that I should've gotten a self-powered vacuum, but for now I can appreciate the mini arm workout! :) also snagged the vacuum with coupons and kohls rewards! it worked out great for me.

Very very loud from day one. The belt broke before I even changed the bag for the first time. I replaced the belt, used it a few times, and the belt broke again. I replaced the belt again (having just put in the 2nd bag), and it refused to work: the beater bar didn't move at all!! It is going to the landfill. I am sorry I ever purchased this vacuum--what a waste of money!

Its hard enough to find a vacuum that cleans carpet but one that goes from carpet to tile has been impossible! This one has proven to do both! I'm impressed to say the least, I'm usually the one after first use returning my vacuum cause its horrible but this one made the cut. As for longevity that's to be determined but so far I'm loving my hoover!
