We have 3 indoor dogs, 2 are long hair golden retrievers. We've put up with hair and debris on the carpets because we couldn't find a vacuum with enough suction. Even our $1,200 Kirby couldn't get the job done. But, when I borrowed my neighbor's Hoover Platinum I knew my prayers were answered! Mine was on back order, but well worth the wait. My carpets look like new again and we've added another golden to the mix! THANKS ABT for great service and the best price [$] devlivered!!!

I lke the way it cleans carpets, but only so-so on bare floors. Only two attachments, and light weight ones at that. No wand extention availble so if you have drapes or spider webs on the ceiling you can't reach them. Also unit is too large to fit under and around furniture, so the lack of an extension for the hose, and a smaller power brush is a very large negative. Apparently the accountants who cut manufacturing costs on this unit never consulted the engineering department about its lack of standard cleaning applications that every home owners uses. For the price and the name I expected a premium Hoover vacumn cleaner, but my older $100.00 Hoover out performed this model, and is built out of more heavy duty and metal parts, with more cleaning tools and a longer hose. I don't advise this unit for anyone who wishes to clean their home. Its like a car with no doors, seats, window glass, or hood or trunk lid. The basis rug cleaning works, but nothing else works properly because of lack of good design.

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum:
This is the worst quality of Hoover I have EVER owned. Where to Start: - Cord retractor did not work all the time from the start, also very weak - Sounds like a jet engine at half power, hurts your ears to use it for more than a few minutes at a time - The wand does not stay extended when you twist it and is always falling off the machine - Cheaply manufactured of light weight plastic - Tips over frequently when standing up. - The height adjustment does not change and sometimes it does. I set it on high shag and it could not be pushed through the carpet, it was set so low. I stopped it and tried to see if it was broken. I turned it over and then the adjustment worked. I gave it two stars only because it does actually clean the carpet when it does work.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So far it's been good. I hVe purchased others and they ended up being terrible. Hope this one does not turn out to be a lemon
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Piece of expensive junk (cord, cord retract, clips, brushroll off, upright stability)
I have only had this vacuum a few years, but already have so many issues with it that it probably isn't worth me trying to fix it (and I HATE throwing anything away). The main requirement for me when I was looking for a vacuum was a retractable cord. This vacuum did that, but the cord is a bit on the short side even though I have a very small, 1960-built house. Also, I have been using the wand from my old vacuum because I hate the type included with this machine -- you extend it and then twist to lock in place, but the lock usually doesn't hold and the wand collapses back in on itself. Plus, the powered hand tool/upholstery attachment is fairly useless. Finally, the brushroll on/off feature to turn off the brush (for hardwood) doesn't always turn off the brush. It is hit or miss. Issues with breakage include: -Electrical cord: The black covering has pulled out of the plug, exposing the insulation (and no, I do not pull from the cord, only by grasping the actual plug) -Brush clip: Broken, so you cannot store the brush on the vacuum body -Cord retraction: Sometimes it retracts on its own -Upright stability: NO LONGER STAYS UPRIGHT! I could possibly live with the rest of the issues, but this makes it impossible. It is a major pain to lift it over every threshold (since you canâ€™t just tip the vacuum back to go over, rolling on the back wheels). It is a pain to store it. And if my kids bump into it, it comes crashing down! Dangerous. I am disgusted. A vacuum should last longer than this. I guess it is time to get out my grandmotherâ€™s vacuum from the 1950s. It still works!

Words can not describe this vacuum! It truly the Best I have every owned. The cleaning job it does is amazing. Suction & manuverable is outstanding. Never knew I had a dirty carpet, picks up a lot of dirt & hair, etc. My carpet looks almost new again. Thanks Hoover for making a great machine.

I am so happy with this Hoover sweeper. Is the best one I ever had. Very strong suction that picks up the smallest dirt to lint. It is a sturdy sweeper that will handle a lot of abuse. Recommend you all buy this great deal .
So far so good

Like the title says. So far so good. Easy to assemble and cleans great.
Best vacuum ever
from Santa Maria, CA, United States
I bought this about a month ago and just love it. I had a Bissell ... it was ok but this one is 3 xs the machine of the Bissell. Have I mentioned how much I love it ... and the cord rewind is awesome.

I bought this from Freds a while back. It worked great for a while until the drop door on the can broke. The hinges cracked. I can't find a new cyclonic can to replace it. I would still like to use this vaccuum.
Strong suction power

Replaces an older Hoover and does a much better job on pet hair and sand in carpet without belts coming off on lower settings. Con: A bit heavy

I was disappointed that it is not a self propelled; I just assumed it would be. Also the cord is not as long as my older hoover. I like it, but I think if I had known it was not a self propelled I would have shopped further and upgraded to the next level of Hoover. And yes, I would recommend with the caveats above!
