Amazon.com Review

Designed by engineering guru James Dyson, inventor of the cyclonic vacuum, the 12-amp Dyson DC07 upright is an inspired combination of power and structural smarts. At the center of the machine's innovation is the Cyclone air path design, an eight-section chamber that creates powerful, consistent suction. The conical chambers generate 100,000 g of centrifugal force, pushing dust and dirt out of the airflow into the vacuum's 1-gallon collection cup. With no bag to clog, the vacuum's 270 air watts of suction remain steady. The large, transparent collection cup is easy to check and empties tidily--pop it off, hold it over a trash bin, and pull the trigger to release dirt without having to touch it. The DC07 also comes equipped with a multipart filtration system to improve overall air quality in the home. The HEPA filter, measuring 412 square inches in surface area, traps microscopic particulates and allergens. Expertly built, the filter is designed to last the lifetime of the machine.

Suitable for bare floors and carpets, the Dyson upright features a 14-inch cleaning path and edge-cleaning bristles. A simple foot pedal switches off the brush roll for bare floors, and the nozzle automatically adjusts for changes in carpet height. The vacuum is equipped for above-floor cleaning with a cleverly stowed, quick-release 17-foot hose with a reversible, extension-wand handle. Onboard accessories include a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and an upholstery attachment, all designed to function without "sticking" to surfaces. Made from the same material used in crash helmets, the vacuum is unquestionably durable. Plus, the design only puts 4 pounds of weight on the handle, so pushing and turning is easy. This model comes with a 35-foot power cord.--Emily Bedard

Editor's note: This is a reconditioned vacuum. Reconditioned generally means that the vacuum has been returned to the manufacturer, who brings the vacuum back to like-new condition. Some appliances may contain cosmetic blemishes.Manufacturer offers a 6-month warranty on this reconditioned product. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best vacuum I have ever owned
My reconditioned vacuum came in excellent condition. I have 2 Border Collies, a black Lab and 3 cats - as well as a husband who doesn't wipe his feet very well before he comes in the house - so I have alot of dust and pet hair.
The Dyson arrived quickly - was easy to assemble - all the parts fit well - and cleaned the whole house "barefoot" clean. It rolls very easily, transitions well between carpet and hardwood (you do have to manually turn off the beater, but I don't think that is a problem). My other vacuums (a Hoover and an Oreck) would blow around the pet hair instead of picking it up but the suction on the Dyson was strong enough not to have that problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW !!!!!
I was very apprehensive of buying a reconditioned vacuum. I figured it would arrive all scratched up and nasty. Well, mine looks brand new. Not a scratch to be found. Cannister was squeeky clean, filter had zero dirt.

I would be thrilled with this vacuum even if it were scratched and dinged. We vacuumed the livingroom floor as soon as it arrived and could not believe how much stuff it pulled out of the rug. We have 14 month old twins crawling around so my wife vacuums everyday with the old oreck. I have never been happy with the oreck and I could justify my displeasure after the first time we vacuumed with this Dyson.

$250 may seem like a lot of money for a reconditioned vacuum. All I can say is: if you buy it, you wont regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Refurbished Dyson rocks!
Great vacuum. It worked as new even though I got the refurbished version.

The other Central Florida person that got the refurb,returned it, got new gives up too easily. I got mine for $225. Even at $250+ it is a great deal! It is amazing all the dust you pickup with this thing.

No complaints whatsoever.

5-0 out of 5 stars the best vacuum I ever had
like most of the other people that reviewed dyson - I found it to be by far the best vacuum I have ever had - much better than any hoover etc.
It is quite powerfull and I was impressed first time I used it with how much dirt it collected from what I thought was a very clean carpet.
I would definitely recomand it to anyone. I don't think I will ever buy any other brand again.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed with refurbished DYSON
After weeks and weeks of research and consideration of the refurbished Dyson, I ordered it. All previous messages stated it was like new. Well, upon receiving the Dyson, overall the appearance of the vac was in like new condition with only one issue; the hose had a smash in it. No biggie right? Since the hose is just made of wire, all I had to do was pinch the wire into place and the hose was fine. Then I started it up. The seals were not sealing and I was getting an awefule whistling sound. I went to my local retailer to see if theirs did the same and nope, it didn't. I also noticed that the suction of my refurbished Dyson was also a little less than the new one. Long story short, if you didn't get in on the $225 deal, I wouldn't recommend it. These vacs are high tech. and a lot can go wrong with them. I figured Dyson would take pride in their refurbished vac, but I was not impressed what-so-ever. Needless to say, I returned my vac and purchased a new one.

I totally recommend Dyson's new vacs. It picked up so much dirt from my house I was really impressed. And I must mention that my wife vacuumes every two weeks. Once the Dyson came to our house, it picked up three canisters of dirt and dust the first day. The house is 2800 sq. ft. VERY impressive vacuum.

With a newborn on the way, I have a huge confidence that the house is in clean shape for the todler to crawl around on.

Amazon.com Review

A high-powered vacuum for high traffic areas, this 12 amp Hoover WindTunnel V2 upright delivers efficient design and versatile performance. The machine features a special duct system to prevent dirt from returning to the floor, and its dual air path suction and side groomers deliver optimum edge cleaning. Adjustable for bare floors and three levels of carpet, the floor nozzle has a 15-inch cleaning path and double brush rolls to get at the dirt between carpet fibers. The vacuum is conveniently bagless and collects debris in a generously sized double-sided dirt cup. A screen between the chambers keeps large particles on one side, sending small debris and dust into the second chamber where it's trapped in the HEPA filter. When the dirt cup is full, sliding it out and emptying it is simple, thanks to the sturdy handle and secure lid. The cup's HEPA filter can be tapped clean to extend its life, while the machine's prefilter and exhaust filter can be hand washed for repeated use.

For above-floor and spot cleaning, the vacuum comes with a ready-to-go hose and onboard attachments, including an extension wand, two crevice wands in different lengths, a dusting brush, and an upholstery tool. These are stored in side clips and a tidy front hatch. Beltless for easy maintenance, the vacuum also includes helpful extras, including quick-release cord hooks, a carrying handle, a 31-foot power cord,nonmarring wheels, a furniture guard, and a headlight. The power switch is in the handle, and the three handle positions are controlled with a foot pedal. Hoover backs up this unit with a full one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great vacuum!
I just received this vacuum today, and have already worn myself out cleaning with it! It was time to upgrade the vacuum--the old one had had it. With a new baby on the way, we knew we had to make the investment. We decided to try Hoover's latest model. I have a Hoover SteamVac and have been happy with Hoover's quality and reputation.

The V2 is fantastic so far. It is a little hard to push on carpet on the lowest setting, but I attribute this to the powerful suction and will deal with it because it's getting my carpet clean! I have a large amount of tile floors, and it works wonderfully on them as well (you just turn off the rollers with the touch of a button). It also glides really well on hard surfaces. The non-marring "soft wheels" are great! No more thick plastic wheels that are noisy as you roll them or to scratch surfaces.

I've tried out the various attachments, and the suction is fantastic! I cleaned the stairs with the upholstery tool, and used the crevice tools with great success. I love the way the tools are conveniently stored, but out of the way when you're not using them.

You can push the foot pedal to make the vacuum lie completely flat to get underneath furniture, etc. Emptying the dust bin and filter is really easy too. The other great thing is that it doesn't fill up really quickly. I've vacuumed almost the entire house without ever reaching anywhere near the capacity of the dust bin, although I emptied it anyway just to have it completely empty.

In short, if you're considering making an investment in a new vacuum, you can't go wrong with this Hoover. It makes cleaning so much easier!

3-0 out of 5 stars Awesome but LOUD
PROS: Great Cleaning Power
HEPA Filter
No bags or belts to buy
CONS LOUD, LOUD, LOUD
No 1-800 customer service
Roller on-off switch not easily accessible

I bought this vacuum after trying out a friend's Windtunnel that worked very well. I decided to go with the V2 after much research because of the beltless feature. I unpacked the vacuum put it all together (VERY easy, even my husband could do it). I vacuumed my living room with my old vacuum and then with the new one and got up so much dog hair, dust and carpet fiber! I thought this thing is awsome, but a little loud. After vacuuming the whole downstairs of my house I just couldn't take it anymore, the thing was shrieking like a banshee! I tried changing the hieght settings and it didn't help. It must be the gear system because it only does it when the brush rolers are on.

I called customer service this am (another problem - no toll free number and the website's no help) and explained the vacuum was whining loudly - is this normal? She states " Well the gears do whine a little bit." I said " NO, this is very loud." She says "Yes it is a little loud." Needless to say, I returned it this morning.

Also, while the on-off brush feature is nice, it is hard to get to. It is down on the front of the vacuum with the carpet height adjustment, and both swithches are recessed in to a hollow, so you can't use your foot. So you have to bend over every time you go from carpet to hard floor.

If you can live with the loudness and bending over, this vacuum cleans great! But this wasn't the vacuum for me!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wedding gift makes complete "sweep"
Bought as a wedding gift and the Bride is thrilled with it. I, personally wouldn't want a "bagless" vaccuum - seems like it wouldn't clean as well, but I could be wrong, lol.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money!
My husband and I registered for this vacuum for our wedding and I wish we had read the reviews beforehand because it was terrible from day one! First of all, it's so heavy I refuse to use it for fear of hurting my back and because it's aggravating. Of course that leaves it up to my husband to vacuum. You can imagine how often it gets done!

His complaints: It CONSTANTLY shuts down which means it can take the whole day to vacuum even our little apartment. The main vacuum head doesn't pick up anything, so you wind up on your hands and knees trying to vacuum a big area with a little attachment. It's difficult to empty because the canister is hard to get in and out of its holder. Also, the HEPA filter clogs very easily and the tank must be emptied when it gets about half full or the vacuum power just gets even worse & it'll just shut down. We have only one cat, but it doesn't even take care of his fur. Even after we vacuum if you lean down to look across the carpet you can see a thin layer of cat hair. It's as if you did nothing all day in spite of all the aggravation you went through to try to get the thing to work in the first place!

We will NEVER purchase another HOOVER product! In fact, we're getting a Dyson -this time we read the reviews.

1-0 out of 5 stars No bargain
In less than a year, the brushes had to be replaced twice because the interior was plastic and quickly stripped out. Now the lever that adjusts the height will not remain in place and to fix it the entire body has to be replaced. Though it cleaned well, the breakage is unforgivable. My grandmother and mother are using their very old, very original models while my "modern" version is headed for the junk heap.

Another once-respected name sold out to plastic. ... Read more

Equipped with system for monitoring work speed and a heater forboosting performance, this upright machine deep-cleans carpets and rugsby forcing a warm solution of water and cleansing concentrate intofibers and vacuuming up the dirty solution. The 1440-watt machine alsoscrubs bare floors (but not hardwood floors) and cleans stairs,upholstery, auto interiors, and even mattresses with onboard tools thatspray dirty surfaces and crevices with the cleaning solution. A poweredhand-tool that either brushes or vacuums at the flick of a switchaccompanies the machine and attaches to a flexible accessories hose.The heater's advantage over ordinary machines is that it increases thecleaning solution's temperature (up to but not exceeding 180 degrees F)and prevents the solution from cooling. The electronic monitor displayslights showing whether the machine is going back and forth too fast foroptimum performance. This model also has an applicator for spraying 3MScotchgard dirt-and-stain protector (8 ounces included) onto a carpet.Here's how the machine works: A plastic bottle for filling withBissell's Fiber Cleansing Formula (16 ounces included) fits into thebase. A removable 1-gallon tank contains a bladder to hold clean waterfor mixing with the cleansing concentrate. (Dirty water vacuumed by themachine collects around the bladder.) A dial offers three settings forvarious tasks: normal, high traffic, and water rinse/carpet protector.A trigger on the machine's handle applies solution as desired. Aflow-indicator spins when solution is applied and stops if the tankneeds refilling. There's a switch for applying solution through thetools: tough-stain brush, upholstery tool, bare-floor head, crevicetool, pretreat wand. (The machine does not heat solution for tools.)The machine's 12-inch floating brush-roll automatically adjusts forcarpet heights. Safe for virtually all carpets and upholstery fabrics,the deep-cleaning method can be turned off for dry-vacuuming delicatewool and Oriental rugs. The machine quickly assembles in five steps,using two bolts and nuts and two Phillips-head screws (all included).An especially understandable assembly/instruction booklet accompaniesthe machine, which carries a 1-year warranty against defects. --FredBrack ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This carpet cleaner works miracles
I normally don't enter reviews for products I have purchased, but after using this machine I had to respond. My carpets have been professionally cleaned for years, but this has become quite expensive. I decided to try the cleaning myself, and after careful investigation I decided the Bissell machine was the one I would try. And wow did it work! My husband couldn't believe how clean the carpets have become. And with the convenience of having this in my own home, I can clean any time I want. I would recommend this product to anyone!

2-0 out of 5 stars I have had two of these and they both broke!
I really like this product when it works. But, I have had multiple problems with both of the units I have bought. The sprayer has stopped permanently at least twice necessitating professional repair that was slow and costly, and I have had other problems as well which completely disabled the machine.

I have three little dogs, and we heat with wood which brings wood for the woodstove in over the carpet. I have an excellent cyclonic hepa-filter vacuum cleaner, but I also need a WORKING steam cleaner for my carpets, as well, and not one which is in the shop all the time.

I have tried two of these Pro-heats, and the next one I buy will be the Hoover model. I have read the reviews on that one, and there are complaints about quality for that product, as well, but I am still going to give it a try.

I am THROUGH with the Bissel even though it was easy to set up and use and did quite a good job. It is just too unreliable. Bissel needs to get their act together and do some serious quality control improvement on this machine!

4-0 out of 5 stars This ProHeat is alright...
I had previously owned a Proheat Carpet Cleaner (purchased it at Circuit City for $... when it was on demo clearance) It broke after about 10 uses. I tried to replace the motor but the replacement part was too expensive ($...), so I disposed the whole thing.

Recently, I just bought one at BestBuy for $... (opened box item) and also bought the 4 years extended warranty for $.... This machine is alright. It does what it promised. The complaints I have is that it doesn't have the option to turn off the suction and let the brush brushes a while so it clean more effectly. The soap and water must be replaced too often even just for small area. Also, the whole unit is all plastic and it's brittle. The last unit I owned was broke at the foot lever (tilt release).

I did not have a chance to compare this to other brand such as Hoover. I only bought this based on the decent price opportunity. Overall, I like this machine although I think Bissel could improve more. I wouldn't have any complaint if the price is $..., otherwise, it is way overpriced.

3-0 out of 5 stars Flimsy - Don't move it like a vacuum.
The plastic parts don't hold up very well when it is loaded with water. The lock in the hinge was the first to break when I tried to tilt it with a full dirty water tank. Then the suction lip broke off when get caught at a corner. The internal hose connecting the motor and the dirty water tank broke the next. The 90 degree range of movement is a little too much for such a tiny section of hose.
It appears to me the designers of the steamvac do not use it much themselves. The upright vacuum format, while convenient, is not the best format for a steamvac that can be 50+ pounds when loaded.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good Idea ruined by cheap Plastic parts
The first time I used the machine it was GREAT. Then the splastic sprocket that rolls the roller brush broke. Under warranty, no problem. Drove 60 miles to have it fixed, picked it up the following week. Once again, it worked great for the next three uses. Then the same plastic part broke again. No longer under warranty. I think the people who are giving this machine good reviews haven't owned it long enough for the plastic to wear out. Bissell could have a great machine if they wouldn't use such cheap parts. They might find people are willing to pay the higher price for a dependable machine. ... Read more

Made for high-traffic areas and serious above-floor cleaning, this WindTunnel V2 bagless upright with hand tool from Hoover combines smart construction with versatile functionality. Built with a 12 amp motor, the vacuum can handle a wide range of surface types, from bare floor to deep-pile carpet. A special duct system prevents dirt from returning to the floor, and dual air path suction and side groomers deliver optimum edge cleaning. The floor nozzle has a 15-inch cleaning path for covering ground efficiently and double brush rolls to get at the dirt between carpet fibers. The vacuum is conveniently bagless and collects debris in a generously sized double-sided dirt cup. A screen between the chambers keeps large particles on one side and sends small debris and dust into the second chamber where they're trapped in the HEPA filter. When the dirt cup is full, you slide it out and empty it--a simple process thanks to the cup's sturdy handle and secure lid. The vacuum's HEPA filter can be tapped clean to extend its life, while the machine's prefilter and exhaust filter can be hand washed for repeated use.

For above-floor and spot cleaning, the vacuum's best feature is a powered hand tool that attaches to the hose and comes complete with its own rotating brush roll. Other attachments include an extension wand, a crevice wand, a dusting brush, and an upholstery tool. These are all stored onboard in side clips and a tidy front hatch. Beltless for easy maintenance, this model also includes handy extras, such as quick-release cord hooks, nonmarring wheels, a carrying handle, a 31-foot power cord, a furniture guard, and a headlight.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Vacuum Ever!!!
I would have given it *0* stars if I could have!!!
I bought this vacuum thinking it was going to be so great. It was one of the most expensive ones at the store. It broke after 1 week. I had already thrown the box away and I couldn't find my receipt anywhere. I have a long haired cat and also long hair myself. Two of the brushes got tangled up with hair and the cheap plastic brushes melted. So I ordered 4 replacement brushes online (anticipating more problems so I ordered 2 extra brushes) At least the new replacement had metal inside the brush so the didn't melt like the other original 2. I replaced all 4. Now everytime I vacuum I have to alot out about 10 minutes after I finish vacuuming to clean the vacuum. Needless to say I hate vacuuming even more now. It takes up too much time!

I am now getting what I should have from the beginning THE DYSON ANIMAL!!! Never to buy another Hoover again!!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Really cleans up but has its issues
This vacuum really does a good job of getting up dust and pet hair. We have a large dog who sheds like crazy and 2 cats who do the same. It really cleans up the hair and the onboard tool is pretty cool - it also sucks up hair from the couch in no time. That eliminated my need to use a separate small vac on the furniture. But it IS extremely heavy and I'm surprised it doesn't have the "easy-push" feature most new vacuums come with. We bought this vacuum in March and by December (just as one other reviewer commented) one side of the brushes stopped working. Part of the problem (with this, and most vac's, I've noticed) is that my long hair gets tangled around the brush heads and then burn out the whole thing. Can they NOT come up with a way to fix this? There's no way to avoid vacuuming up your own hair! I was hoping the beltless feature would mean less hassle but we still have problems with this vac. And it's pretty expensive. The noise really isn't an issue for us as I expect a vacuum to be loud. We also like that you can turn off the rotating brushes to vacuum floors and small rugs. But there's just too much room for improvement to justify spending this much on a vacuum. We're just glad that the store we bought it from (Kohl's) has such a great return policy. If it breaks, we take it back. So I don't even mess with trying ot fix it - we just replaced the whole thing when it DID break down. Bottom line - look for a bagless w/HEPA that's easy push for a lower price and you'll probably be happier.

1-0 out of 5 stars WHAT A LEMON!!!
We bought this vacuum because we thought Hoover had a good reputation. What a mistake! The first time we used it, the motor burned out. Hoover replaced the motor. It worked okay for a year (nothing spectacular) and then the suction stopped working. We got it in to be repaired just before the warranty expired. We used it twice after the repair and now it smells like it's burning when we use it. Our cheapo Eureka that is 10 years old works better than this vacuum. I wish I had read the reviews on here before wasting my money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Pathetic vacuum w/ poor workmanship
I bought this vacuum couple of weeks back and the unit will not turn on for some reason. So I returned it for a replacement, the other unit failed the very second day yielding extremely poor vacuum. Amazon denied replacment of the same again stating that this problem seems to be more widespread than expected so they cannot give another`replacement but I wonder` why they are still selling it especially for such a high price! But I must say, amazon has a great customer service since they have paid for shipping the item 4 times considering the fact that this item is heavy and weighs 30 pounds!

BUY anything from amazon BUT this Hoover!

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS VACUUM!!!!!!
Its heavy and loud. You might be okay if you dont have kids, animals and a head of hair. It gets clogged and you have to take the whole vacuum apart to unclog. Than it just clogs again. And hair get wrapped around the bearings on the brushes and then melts and fuses the bearing together than you have a wonderful option of paying 90 bucks to have it fixed or just throw the junk away!!!

Keep that new slate entry hall or tiled bathroom floor looking as clean as the day it was laid with the Hoover Floor Mate. Designed especially for cleaning hard, sealed floors, including stone, wood, and laminate, the Floor Mate performs a triple-whammy: it vacuums, washes, and dries. Dual tank design for wet or dry cleaning, a deluxe grip with solution trigger, and a 13-inch cleaning path make cleaning a snap. Four rows of soft brushes safely and gently clean floors with the included 8-ounce bottles of Lysol and Old English concentrated solutions. The brush assembly and nozzle squeegee remove for cleaning, and the EZ-empty recovery tank automatically shuts off when full. Soft wheels mean no worries about dents or scratches on those gleaming floors. The Floor Mate measures approximately 29 by 10 by 15 inches, weighs 18 pounds, and is covered by a one-year warranty. --Ann Bieri ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars If you want to get your dust wet and leave it as streaks ---
A miserable experience. I bought this through Amazon when I contracted to have my hardwood floors refinished. The contractor took way too long, so I didn't try to use it until yesterday. Only the dry vacuum function worked, and not very well. I tried to call Hoover. They don't have an 800 customer service number, so I had to pay for a looonnnnnggggg long distance call. Got a busy signal the first ten times, then was put in line ("Your call is important to us") for 47 minutes, a total of one hour 13 minutes before I got a human being. She first tried to tell me that she didn't know anything about their products and that I should take it to my local appliance repair shop. I insisted and she finally suggested that I unscrew the handle and screw it on again. I did. Nothing, though I noticed that the internal "controls" are a couple of flimsey plastic sticks, the very essence of nineteenth century technology, but with cheaper materials. Ever heard of a switch?

I then drove across the county to my Hoover dealer. He told me that there were two screws missing, which should have been installed at the factory, and replaced them. He also pointed out that the "scrub" function is a misnomer -- the thing doesn't scrub; its brushes aren't designed to move at all. He assured me that the tiny dribble of cleaning solution he managed to get out of it was all it needed.

I took my expensive toy home and tried it. The advertised three-way action is actually about a half dozen separate actions, only two of them (vacuuming and dribbling) done by the machine. You have to do the rest. First you have to dry vacuum the floor. Then you switch over to wet/scrub and three tiny streaks of fluid appear. Then you go back over it to spread the fluid around and, supposedly, to pick up the fluid and dirt. After a few minutes the floor dries and you see dirty streaks everywhere. Repeat process. Same thing. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Then go get a mop and do it properly.

As far as I can tell, the purpose of this appliance is to moisten dust, move it around a little and leave it on the floor as streaks. The machine has no effect whatever on dried spills, footprints, scuff marks, dirt or any of the other things that routinely find their way onto a floor. And the tanks are so small that you can only do about half a room before you have to empty and refill.

I have bought a lot of appliances since I started restoring my house. Some have been great (Bosch dishwasher, Mac woodchipper, Mikita powertools), most good (Amana gas range, ShopVac), but this Hoover is the biggest piece of crap, backed by the worst customer service, that I have enountered outside the former Soviet Union. I gave it one star only because you are not given the option of none. And now Amazon won't take it back because 30 days passed before I could use it.

4-0 out of 5 stars thought there was only one model
i too didn't realize there were diff.models [i researched it on the web] but saw it at brandsmart and thought i was getting a good buy. its not the magic bullet for tile but saves the mopping.who knew there were supposed to be spinning brushes?a little truth in advertising? problem is finding lysol concentrate for machine.is there somehing else to use?

3-0 out of 5 stars Get the FloorMate 3000 or 3010 for just a little more $$
We ordered the FloorMate 2800 model from the Home Shopping Network last week by mistake (paid $165, including shipping). We hadn't done enough prior research to realize there were THREE different FloorMate models, and this was the bottom-of-the-line model with immobile brushes.

It went together easily; probably 10 minutes and we were ready to go. Somehow we managed to get it out of the box and assembled without noticing the brush configuration (there was no need to turn it over during assembly).

I vacuumed and cleaned the white linoleum in our 500 sf kitchen in about an hour, using about 1.5 tanks of water + 3 oz of solution. It did a great job of picking up dog hair, pepper, sugar, etc, and did an OK job of cleaning the floor (still kind of dirty in the pits of the linoleum. I was disappointed that it took so long, but amazed at how filthy the water was, when we had just mopped a couple of days before.

While cleaning it out I discovered it didn't have the spinning brushes. After some quick research, we found that both the 3000 and 3010 models have the spinning brushes. The 3010 model (FloorMate Plus) has only been out since Sept 2003, costs only about $35 more than we paid, and also has a longer cord and extra set of brushes. It didn't take long to decide to send back the 2080 and get the 3010.

We weren't completely unhappy with the results of the 2080, but figured for $30 more, the 3010 would do even better.

5-0 out of 5 stars clean grout !!!!!!!!!!
I purchased this with a bit of scepticism. I'm not a cleaning fanatic, but I like a clean house. Well, the grout in our tile is now getting clean and the stained concrete porch with all the doggy footprints is getting clean as well. I highly recommend this product. I am so excited about it that I've told friends. I never talk about cleaning with my friends.

This is well worth the $!!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Hoover's Even Better the Second Time
Up until 1997, I didn't give vacuum cleaners much thought. Then I saw the Hoover Wind Tunnel TV commercials, bought a Wind Tunnel, and came to appreciate what a difference a good vacuum cleaner makes.

Now, 6 years later, it was time to get a newer vacuum to take advantage of features such as bagless and self propulsion. After comparing specs and reading reviews, including those in Consumer Reports, another Hoover seemed to be the logical choice. I ended up getting the U6660-900, which is the same as the U6630 with the exception of an extended warranty and an additional flex hose.

This is a wonderful vacuum cleaner! Self propulsion makes this 24 lber feel like it only weighs 5 lbs. The amount of dirt it picks up is remarkable - the dirt finder feature gives you the confidence that you have thoroughly cleaned an area. Bagless is the only way to go - emptying the canister is very easy. The filtration system is most effective - you don't get that vacuum smell associated with 'dirty air' cleaners. Plus, the frequency with which filters need to be replaced with this model is much less than other makes (3 years for the Hepa filter).

Other nice touches include the ability to turn off the brush roller when cleaning floors; the turbo tool that does a nice job on upholstery; the 35' power cord that minimizes the need to change outlets; and the thoughtful placement of the on board tools and extension hose.

Overall, you just can't go wrong with this top of the line Hoover product. Based on the good experience with my previous Wind Tunnel, I expect this model will also provide years of trouble free service.

4-0 out of 5 stars Kirby vs. Hoover
I bought a Kirby vacuum cleaner for a hefty price over 20 years ago. Although, it's made to last a lifetime, the weight of it makes it very cumbersome & it's a real pain to attach the attachments. With regular maintenance, it's lost it's suction power. My husband bought me a Hoover Self-Propelled Bagless Windtunnel almost a year ago & I LOVE it! It has great suction power (even when using the hose), the Self-Propelled feature is wonderful, I love not having to buy & change bags & the onboard attachments are real convenient. I have to empty the canister & clean the filter about once a month. If you have major dirt, animal hair, etc., you may have to clean it more often. The downside to this vacuum is the hose for the attachments doesn't stretch enough & the small brush attachment is too small. The bristles need to be longer & thicker.

1-0 out of 5 stars Probably the worst vacuum cleaner ever
I ordered this vacuum and received it about a month ago. I have used the vacuum cleaner maybe 12 -15 times or so, as I vacuum every few days and it has already malfunctioned in two ways. The self-propel mechanism has already started failing intermittently and the switch that is used to turn the brush off has broken off. Broken off is not exactly the correct phrase, as the plastic didn't break, the switch just came apart and fell into the body of the vacuum. Do yourself a favor and do not buy this vacuum.

On the positive side, it does have a really good hand tool.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hoover Bagless? We call it the Hoover Worthless!
We quickly discovered our Hoover Bagless machine had problems, but not until the store's 30 day return policy had expired. Repeated e-mails asking for advice/help turned into repeated e-mails from us complaining of problems with both the product and the total lack of response from Hoover. We've attempted to discuss our problems with Hoover, but we've received no response back. The Hoover has been relegated to cleaning the floors in the garage where I keep my antique car collection. We bought a different brand for the house.

Each time we started the Hoover, we first had to position the suction hose near the dirt cannister to catch the dust that flew out whenever the unit was first turned on. With 2 cats, we too were lured by advertising hoopla into the idea that this unit could handle the cat hair. Sure it can, but it means replacing an expensive ($30) filter about 6 to 8 times a year. You do the math - in a couple of years the cost of filters exceeds the cost of the Hoover!

Cleaning the "bagless cannister" is very messy, make sure you do it outside and on a calm day! We'll take a "bag type" anyday!
We've noticed that in all the Hoover bagless advetising we've seen on tv, The person using the bagless Hoover is picking up what looks like confetti. That's right, little pieces of paper. Not dirt, pet hair. etc. Any vac can pick up pieces of paper!

3-0 out of 5 stars Great picker upper but.........fragile
We have 2 St. Bernards and our other vacuum was not picking up all the hair and our carpeting was not looking like it was even vacuumed. I read some very good reviews from dog owners and decided to go with it. It was the greatest thing since sliced bread for the first 6-8 months. Now all is does is break. I have had it to an authorized service 6 times in the past 8 months and I still have the same problems so now I am stuck with an expensive vacuum that has to go for a regular maintenance every 4-6 weeks. Love the pick up but not the problems!! ... Read more

Designed for the everyday stains that outwit vacuums, the Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush combines focused spray, concentrated cleaning solution, and continuous suction. Rotating brushes agitate dirt to the surface, and a manual spray trigger gives you control over solution dispersal. The suction helps surfaces dry faster and makes cleaning jobs go quickly.

The Spotlifter is a fairly maneuverable machine with a comfortable top handle and easy-access clean and dirty water tanks. The brush roll cartridge is removable for simple upkeep or replacement of the brushes. Approximately 16 inches long and 5-1/2 inches wide, the cleaner comes with an 8-ounce starter bottle of Little Green Cleaning Solution. Bissell also includes a circuit interrupting safety device and a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

2-0 out of 5 stars This vacuum sucks!
I have had this vacuum for over a year now and am unhappy with both the design and service. The vacuum has very powerful suction.<br /> <br /> So what's the problem you ask, well with the carpet brush engaged the gears make such a high pitched and hideous squeal that you need to wear hearing protection.<br /> <br /> The V tunnel is so narrow that the carpet fibers get clogged during normal use. I am not using the vacuum to do anything odd and I do not have any pets so there is no long hair. I have to remove the brush guard and use a wire clothes hanger to pull the fibers back out of the suction path. I literally spend more time cleaning the vacuum than the carpet.<br /> <br /> When I informed Hoover of the situation I was redirected to a service center for repairs at my one cost. The vacuum isn't damaged it is poorly designed. I didn't use the device for anything that it is not expressly intended for.<br /> <br /> Between the vacuum and the lack of interest on the part of Hoover I would not recommend this vacuum, unless you're a just sadist.

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst vaccum I ever owned !!!
This is with no doubt the worst vaccum out there. It doesn't put up the attachements don't work. And when you empty the dirt cup you get grease on your hands. Taking it back. This vaccum need alot of improving!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you could ask for ......and more
My old vacuum went out and I spent weeks shopping,and doing net research.I have a dog and kids, one with asthma, so I knew what features were important. I knew what I wanted, but couldn't spend $500.00. Well, this one has it all! Easy to assemble,with a screwdriver-just 4 screws, dual brushes,good suction, carpet to bare floor in an instant,HEPA filter,can be used with bag or bagless,easy to remove and empty dust cup,door covering the on board tools-no falling off during vacuuming-like my old vacuum- hose is long and while you are using it, your vacuum does not fall over-again like my old vacuum.I bought it yesterday, and have tried everything, I love it!!

1. Cleans well
2. Array of attachments that are all stored onboard
3. Hoover replacement parts availability
4. Solid construction
5. Good for larger areas with lots of carpet
6. Easy-access controls (except for height adjustment

Cons:
1. Wide footprint
2. Harder to manuver than other brands
3. Attachments not as easily acessable

4. More expensive than other comparably equipped brands
5. Has some lubricating gunk on the canister that gets off on your fingers
6. Canister is harder to remove than other canister-type vacuums (Pull to the side instead of straight out)

Amazon.com Review

In a house with plenty of light-colored carpet, pets, or a combination of the two, there are enough messes where it pays to own your own steamcleaner. Deep cleaning is meant as an additional step to vacuuming as it shoots warm water deep into carpet fibers to loosen and remove dirt and grit that even daily vacuuming can’t reach.

Bissell’s ProHeat cleaner has a DirtLifter Powerbrush with six rows of brushes for lifting out embedded dirt particles and utilizes its 12 amps of strong suction to pull them in. The built-in heater keeps tap water 25 percent hotter than most steam cleaners do and distributes a mixture of warm water and cleaning solution into carpets to provide the most effective cleaning. Completely safe on stain-resistant carpets, the ProHeat can apply a Scotchgard protector formula during cleaning to reduce the amount of wear on the stain-resistant coating.

Besides carpeting, this cleaner can be used on home and automobile upholstery and has a 9-foot hose to reach into tight spaces. The ProHeat has a wide, 12-inch path and its onboard accessories include a spraying crevice tool, a tough stain tool, a Scotchgard applicator, a cartridge, and a TurboBrush. Bissell covers this deep cleaner under a full one-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Cleans great, but breaks down frequently.
I love how well this machine cleans. We have two dogs and three cats and the Bissell gets the carpets spotless, but the water pumpt breaks down every six months or so. Other people have said the same thing.

5-0 out of 5 stars In love with a carpet cleaner?
The idea of a self-propelled carpet cleaner made me laugh at first, but now that I have one I am amazed that I got by so long without one...it just makes the job of cleaning your carpet such a breeze.

I have a lot of animals in my house, and when I clean the carpets, I really need to clean the carpets. This cleaner will pull probably about 90% of the grime in the carpet (it doesn't look like it should have that much dirt in it...) out on the first pass over it. This is one of those few products out there that really works like the commercials show it does as long as you follow the directions:

You need to make sure that heater is finished heating the water before you begin or you'll just be making a mess until it is hot enough to actually do some cleaning--this is probably the number one complaint I hear about this cleaner and its because they are not waiting for the heating to finish. The next things that people always do wrong is the the settings need to be switched back to the Water Only setting while the machine is not in use or the soap lines will clog up. As long as you store the cleaner properly it works like a dream (or a commercial) everytime no matter how bad the mess is.

Also, for anyone who has long-haired pets: this cleaner will clean up the giant clumps of wet hair tangled in the carpet with no problems at all. The biggest drawback is that the self-propel feature is kind of worthless is tight spaces because you have to have quite a bit of room to swing the cleaner around and get all the angles. You won't be able to run this around the furniture--you'll actually have to move the furniture out of the way if you want to do a decent job cleaning.

1-0 out of 5 stars Leaking Tank ALSO!!!!
The water bladder tank leaked and the brush assembly hopped. I called Bissell, they apologized and sent out another tank. The second tank arrived 10 days later, it leaked also; so I returned the cleaner where I purchased it.

The dual tank seemed a good idea until I used it. I was dumping a lot of clean hot water down the drain. It was nearly impossible to get the carpet shed/fuzz out of the tank because you cannot remove the clean water bladder. I also was not fond of the idea that the brushes did not rotate without the suction. Some spots need to be scrubbed more than others and I found that I used more cleaning solution and water than was necessary because I could not just brush the area without removing the cleaning solution.

Extremely frustrating. I am searching for a cleaner without belts and separate tanks.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easier to use then I thought it would be
This is an incrediable cleaner! We moved into a house with 5 year old carpet that had never been cleaned and I decided to try this instead of renting a system (it ended costing about the same!) I pulled up tons of dirt, but also big dust balls! I love the light water tank and found the whole unit even lighter to move around them my vacumm cleaner! The hand tools though didnt impress me much, as they didnt seem to have a very strong vacumm on it and left my stairs wetter then I would have liked. But otherwise, its a great unit and a great buy.

2-0 out of 5 stars Cleans well, but problems.
I first bought a Bissell Proheat about four years ago. Except for initally the tank washer being missing, I loved it. I loved the way it cleaned and with pets I used it all the time. When it finally started to have problems after just tons of use,I really felt I had gotten my money's worth and looked forward to getting a newer model of the same.

BUT, I brought a brand new Bissell Proheat home and assembled it,and the tank leaked. It said on the box not to return it to the store, but I certainly didn't want to keep something brand new that was defective. Anyway, I took it back to the store and they kindly (Wal-Mart)exchanged it. I immediately checked the tank on the new machine before going to the trouble of assembling the whole thing and again the tank is leaking. It leaks around the footplate that is held on at the bottom of the tank with three screws.

I am really frustrated as I loved the way this machine cleaned but am getting tired of returning it. Surely Bissell can make a tank that doesn't leak. With elderly pets who have accidents,I need something NOW, so will probably look at another make of cleaner. Have I just been unlucky, or has this been a problem with these machines? ... Read more

This machine all and all it does what it says it does. I love the fact that I don't have to deal with filters and left over dust in the air.

Amazon.com Review

Slim and speedy, the 6-amp Hoover Flair stick cleaner is a handy cleaning tool for bare floors and low carpets. It has a 10-inch floor nozzle for efficient coverage and collects dirt and debris in a bagless dust cup for easy upkeep. The cup is clear for monitoring and pops off quickly to empty in the trash bin. A washable cloth filter is included inside, and an additional side-mounted filter helps keep smaller particles from returning to the atmosphere of your home. In operation, the handle drops to horizontal for maneuvering under furniture, though the oval body may not fit under especially low-slung tables and chairs.

Simple to use, the Flair includes a swivel nozzle design and oversized casters for easy turning. A rocker switch on the handle controls power and a foot-pedal toggle changes the nozzle from "bare floors" to "carpets." Outfitted with a 20-foot power cord, the vacuum comes with quick-release cord hooks and a hole in the handle for hanging storage. Hoover includes a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Great until it fell apart
With new low pile carpeting (berber) and tile floors elsewhere in my home, this seemed to be the perfect solution and alternative to my trusty Kenmore. The Hoover was easy to handle, descent suction, fairly easy to empty the canister (albeit slightly messy as the dust/dirt tended to "fly" a bit), long electrical cord and an overall lightweight appliance easy enough to manage under tables and chairs and such. However, the third use resulted in a crack in the foot that attaches to the body - this resulted merely from preparing to turn off the machine - too much pressure when placed upright? One crack lead to another, then chunks flew off to the point that the bottom no longer stayed attached to the unit, no way to replace the part without replacing the entire base/foot - not cost effective and of course, past the 30 day return. If the hard plastic connection from foot to base were reinforced or if a preventive measure of duct tape or such around the connection were made I believe this minor adjustment would resolve this unfortunate complication. A call to Hoover netted "ah, sorry to hear of that, never heard of a problem like that before". I didn't know the one I bought for my sister had done the same thing until after I shared the details of my call to Hoover with her. She agrees it's a good concept, but plagued by an otherwise minor flaw.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hoover S2200 Flair Works Well
Got the S2200 Flair Bagless Stick Vac for Christmas. Have been using it for a month and am very satisfied. Have a small apartment with wood floors but I do have a cat. It really does a good job of picking up dirt and cat hair and it does pick up kitty litter! Emptying the removable cup and filter can be messy. It also does not stand upright on its own but overall I am happy with it.

4-0 out of 5 stars handy vac for quick pickups
Fairly good stick vac. We use it mostly for cleaning our tiled kitchen area. Has adjustment for bare floor vs carpet. Good suction and light weight for easy handling. Only critiques are the base floor piece does not have a locking attachment to the body, though its unlikely to come off easily. Also the flaired, oblong shape can make maneuvering a bit funny at times. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Set this lightweight vacuum in a closet like a broom (or hang it from its handle hole) and use it just as often and just as conveniently. Weighing just 7&nbsp;pounds and standing 47&nbsp;inches high, the vacuum's nozzle, powered by a 430-watt motor, cleans carpets with a brush and cleans bare floors after the brush has been retracted by the flick of a lever. The plastic vacuum has no bags to mess with. Instead, it captures dirt in a chamber, inside of which is a special, permanent, washable "cyclonic" filter. The chamber detaches for emptying and is transparent so the dirt level can be monitored. Additional convenience is provided by a 3-foot hose with a crevice tool attached and a handle for lifting the vacuum horizontally to clean stairs. The cord measures 20&nbsp;feet, and the vacuum assembles quickly with a single screw (which is included). Hoover provides a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Does A Good Job
I received my Hoover S2551 Quick Broom in 5 business days from my order, which was excellent considering it was free shipping. It was easy to put together, and I used it right away. It did a good job of picking up dirt, dog hairs, pine needles, and miscellaneous bits from both my hard floors and carpeting. You should not expect this vac. to do the job of a $200 carpet vacuum but is a good choice for everyday quick pickups. My only criticism is the hard little wheels which seem to be the norm for this type of vac. I know they are scratching my wood floors and I use them very carefully on these floors. Otherwise, a good little vac.

4-0 out of 5 stars It SAYS it's for floors
Some people are crying about this vacuum not doing a good job on carpet. It's nor FOR carpet. Also, some were griping about the nozzle falling off in use. I had the same problem, took it to a local Hoover dealer, and come to find out it was missing two screws that securely attach the nozzle to the machine. Voila! it works like a charm. Hoover apparently had a "memory lapse" and didn't ship the screws with the machine.

2-0 out of 5 stars Useful only on floors
If you are planning to use this quick broom on carpets, it won't do a good job,it is only suitable for floors.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sucks only figuratively.
I've owned a Quik-Broom encore for almost a year. Never once have I used it that I haven't been on my hands and knees using the hose attachment in the vain hope of picking up a piece of lint or crumb. Purchase this vacuum only if you don't care about cleanliness; it will never help you achieve it.

4-0 out of 5 stars good one!
I think this one is very efficient and convenient! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I bought this two months ago and I found this very unreliable. It picks up dirt when it works but it rarelly works for 10 min together without stopping suddenly. You will never know when it will stop due to overheating. Don't waste extra money in buying this bagless machine as it is also a pain to clean the dust after work. (when it works)

1-0 out of 5 stars it blows
I thought if i spent more on a vacuum cleaner, it would work better, well, not with this one!!!! Instead of sucking up dirt, it blows it everywhere, then when it's done blowing things all over the place, it shuts itself off, then I have to let it "cool off" for 45 minutes before i can continue vacuuming. It's horrible, I wouldn't recommend this vacuum cleaner to anyone!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars HORRIBLE
Recieved as christmas gift, only a month after use we've burned up multiple bands. works well, when it works, not that it ever does!!!! Do not buy!!!!!!!!! Didnt want to even give it one star!!!!!!!!!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
I really liked it when I first bought it. It has a cool look. However, just now, I was frightened by it since it suddenly shut off after I have vacummed for 7 min....!I've bought it for 3 months only... please don't die..... I kept pushing the button and it's not working!!!! I read the 1st review here and the person said there's an overheating problem. I didn't know that .... and now I'm pushing the button.... it's on again! Genrally, it's good but please bear the sudden nshut off whenever. you'll never know when it's gonna shut off...!!! Surprise!

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this!
It's horrible; can't clean; very dirty; and a waste of money! I'm checking other reviews as I type to buy another vaccuum. This one's going in the trash. I have two dogs and it shuts off every 10 minutes of vaccuuming from overheating. I can actually see the dirt flying everywhere but into the vaccuum. Don't waste your money or your time shopping for this. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

A handy canister model with a 12-amp motor, this Panasonic vacuum is suitable for multi-level carpeting and above-floor tasks. Like the MC-V9644, its more souped-up cousin, this model has a chrome wand, adjusts for four carpet heights, and includes a 14-inch-wide cleaning path with a dual brush roll for agitating dirt out of carpet fibers. Suction is also adjustable, so you can use the vacuum on stiff welcome mats as well as on delicate draperies. A large rocker switch on the canister body controls power, while a toe-tap pedal on the nozzle cycles through the height options. The hose swivels a generous 270 degrees for easy maneuverability, and the canister can rest in the upright or horizontal position.

Dust collects in a bag on this model with triple micron filtration to keep tiny particles and allergens from returning to the home. Changing the bag is straightforward, thanks to the hatch's wide opening, and an additional filter outside the bag is washable and reusable. The vacuum also includes four cleaning attachments for specific jobs--a dusting brush, a fabric brush, a floor brush, and a crevice tool. All four store in a compact hatch onboard and clip onto the machine's wand in a few seconds. Other helpful extras include automatic cord rewind, a carrying handle, and a bright headlight. The power cord is 20 feet long, and Panasonic includes a one-year warranty.--Emily Bedard ... Read more
