Pros:Powerful suction, easy maintenance, never clogs, cord winds itself!

Cons:Short cord.
Can't turn off brush for hard floor cleaning.

The Bottom Line: If you need a cheap, smart, competent vacuum? Buy it.


We bought this vacuum about 8 months ago. We paid $130, but shortly thereafter Target dropped the price to $99. They gave us a price adjustment via cash.

This vacuum is very smartly featured for the price range. I'm not going to compare it to a Dyson, because you can't have one for $100. I will compare it to my previous vacuum, a blue Dirt Devil that cost around $75.

Cleaning: This Hoover lifts a large amount of debris out of the carpets. It picks up larger debris like cheerios, but may require several passes. I can't comment on short hair, but it does a thorough job of picking up long collie fur. It is also more than competent at picking up the little bits of fabric and thread that are in a well-used carpeted sewing area. We see lots of dust gather in the tank and filter as well. I would say the cleaning is comparable to/better than the Dirt Devil.

Smart features: The Hoover Rewind Bagless Upright is loaded with handy features. It has a clear window so one can see if the belt has snapped. It has a suction indicator that lets you know if you need to empty the tank or clean the filter, or if there is a clog. Best of all, you don't have to wind up the cord around those silly pegs like on other vacuums! Just step on a button and it sucks the cord right in like someone eating spaghetti!
NOTE: The vacuum vents through the cord rewinder so when vacuuming a person should pull the cord ALL the way out, otherwise it gets hot. Also, the cord is shorter than other vacuums (about 25 feet I estimate) but it's worth it to never have to wind! If you vacuum too far and pull the cord out of the outlet, simply step on the rewinder. It will suck the plug into your current room where you can plug it back in!

Doodads: It comes with a hose extender, and a crevice tool, and a brushy tool, and one of those upholstery tools with the little suction-powered spinny brush inside. The upholstery tool disassembles easily with clips (NO SCREWDRIVER NEEDED~!!!!) so when it gets clogged up with collie fur, you can easily set it right again.

Hard floors: OK, its downfall. I think it sucks on hard floors... but not in a good way. The strong brush just flings debris behind the vacuum. On this model there's no way to use suction only. Buy a different model if you want hard floor cleaning without the brush.

Clogging: The Hoover is much less prone to clogging than other vacuums in this price range. The Dirt Devil had a silly, windy debris path with tight corners that always clogged, and after clogging had to be disassembled with a screwdriver (5 screws to remove on the front and back of the vacuum, what a pain!). This Hoover has not yet been disassembled due to a clog. One time I vacuumed with the tank full, and some debris accumulated in the hose. I emptied the tank, turned on the vacuum, and it immediately sucked the debris free from the hose. Nice!

Changing belts: Like other maintenance functions on this vacuum, no screwdriver! Just some easy clips. I have yet to find a place where I needed a screwdriver to maintain the vacuum.

The Filter: My other favorite thing on this vacuum - the HEPA filter can be rinsed clean in the sink! The Dirt Devil required a new $20 filter every other month. With the Hoover you never need to buy any filters. Ever. The suction is strong unless the filter is REALLY full, too.
