    Pros: Extracts water well, fairly priced, simple and neat, cleans well
    Cons: Heavy - A "Beast" to lug up and down stairs

    Summary: We purchased the Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 with Clean Surge as a bit of an impulse buy well over a year ago. We were considering cleaning our carpets but I had long ago decided I would never rent one of those impossible to use store rentals ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use. Effective. Great Extraction
    Cons: No rinse feature. Could be built a little better

    Summary: This is one of Hoover's Staples. Its design hasn't changed much in quite a few years. Personally, I think this is the BEST of all the Hoover models! The price range makes it worth it and it does a GREAT job "IF" you use it correctly. Perhaps there are ... read more

    Pros: Cleans very well, rotating brushes, good extraction power
    Cons: Mediocre stair cleaning, unknown how long unit will last

    Update 12/2012: Lack of durability.
