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.

Great vacuum. Picks up cat hair very well and is very versatile - going from thick carpet to hardwoods is a breeze. It is a little heavy but not nearly as heavy as my other vacuum (which we nicknamed the beast due to it's heavy weight and hard maneuverability - it's like wrestling a polar bear). It is still light enough to use on the stairs and the long hose makes it even easier to vacuum without having to pick up the whole vacuum to get to the top of the stairs. I prefer a bagged vacuum (much easier to empty than trying to clean out a bagless model) and this one is very easy and simple with just a push of a button. I would definitely recommend this vacuum.
