Hoover EmPower Bagless Upright Vacuum by
from Seattle, WA
It is easy to use, great to have while my lab is shedding and the furniture attachment works wonders. Over all I'm glad I picked this one.
Pretty Good for the Money
from Mill Creek, Washington
The Hoover EmPower Bagless Upright Vacuum is a good value for the money. It does an excellent job of cleaning the carpet and works fairly well on tile and hardwood floors too. Its cord is longer than most uprights, which is a big plus, and the fold-down handle makes it very convenient to store it in the hall closet with the winter coats. The downside: it is obviously built rather cheaply. The height adjustment is clunky and made of thin plastic. It feels like it could break easily if used too often. I leave mine at the same height all the time, so that's not an issue with me, but it could be with others.The wand system is weirdly designed, and the spinning wand brush attachment gets clogged with hair rather quickly and quits working until you clean it out. A normal brush attachment works just as good and doesn't take anywhere near as much time to clean. The canister fills up rather fast because it holds about half the volume of the more expensive bagless vacuums, so you have to empty it more often. Like ALL bagless vacuums, you shouldn't empty the canister in the house, as that causes a lot of fine dust to puff up into the air, and the filter needs to be cleaned rather often too - in fact, you need another vacuum to properly clean it. The filters are expensive, so when it needs to be replaced, I could have bought a lot of normal vacuum bags for the same price.The bagless design does exactly as it is supposed to do, but after using this design for awhile now, I understand why bag vacuums are still being made. -- The bag system is much more convenient; you go and go until the bag finally fills up, then pull the bag out and discard it without having the dust-cloud problem that emptying bagless vacuums cause. As I said though, this vacuum does a very good job of cleaning the carpet - especially with getting cat hair up. But its downsides, which all bagless systems share, make me really wonder why anyone would pay upwards to $600 for a bagless vacuum. This one is a good value for [$], but that's the top price limit anyone should pay for this design. Bagless vacuums have a ways to go to being perfected.

The only small problem is that the hose is a little short. Otherwise, the empower is a great machine. We have six adults and four children so it gets lots of use.

My 6 year old with eczema was just diagnosed with every outdoor and indoor allergy under the sun. It's hard to believe that a vacuum cleaner can make such a huge difference, but it really has. I was embarassed and amazed at how much dirt/dust I picked up just from her room!
