Hoover WindTunnel II Complete Bagless Upright VacuumVacuum

There are few purchases I regret more than this vacuum cleaner. From the very first (I think we've had it for about 3 years) it sucked up and tore into it's own power cord, broke in multiple places so that if literally falls over if you don't rest it...

Kenmore 11 Amp Upright Vacuum Cleaner Tan & Brown (3701)

When my Kenmore vacuum broke after a little more than 6 months of use - complete with a bit of smoke and a burning smell - I opened it up to see what was wrong.  I expected the belt to be broken - but no, instead it was the beater bar.  The *wooden*...

Hoover TC1212

I agree with Henn, I use this for the cars where it is ultra portable and the handhelds don't hold enough charge for more than one car. It is quiet and efficient, the only downside is that the crevace tool is too wide for narrow gaps so I now use one...

Bissell Healthy Home Steam Mop Max

Ditto. Absolute rubbish. I initially purchased it to clean really ground in grime from unsurfaced linoleum. Of course it didn't work but was great in our new tiled home.... initially. After the first 15 months it now leaks like a sieve. Takes a lot of...

Vax X5 Bagless Upright Vacuum

I got a fabulous price on this vac - $99 from Menards. I returned it after 3 weeks. I have a 1500 sq ft home with multi surface floors. We do not live like pigs - every single time we vacuumed the floor (i/e daily) we nearly lost all suction by the...

Eureka 2971BVZ Altima Bagless Upright Vacuum

Ordered the 3rd brush for our 2996 model today. It barely gets used and it'll still smoke the brush bearings and belts, on average, one belt a month. Never had one that s****y before. Thankfully I didn't buy it, we got it as a wedding gift. Saving up...

Hoover Savvy U8181-900 Bagged/Bagless Combo Upright Vacuum

After only a few mins of use my eyes startede watering and I had a sneezing spell. Even when I went outside to empty the dirt cup the dust cloud stayed in the air then settled on the lawn and the walk way....YUCK!!!!

Electrolux Oxygen 3 Upright

After 40 years of cleaning, I thought I had seen the best and worst of vacuums. For what is charged, this is the worst vacuum I have ever seen! If this were a new car purchase, I would have no problem returning it under the Florida "Lemon Law". Wheels...

Eureka SurfaceMax Upright Vaccuum

This vacuum worked great at first, but broke within a couple months. I've cleaned this thing so many times, replace belts and filters, and its still a lousy vacuum. I've had it professionally serviced twice already and now it's broken again. I'm going...

Russell Hobbs Hepa Cyclonic 1800W / 2200W

I purchased this as an upgrade to the Chinese own brand made for Tesco that I usually get. I thought as I had a little extra cash I should get a branded machine. What a mistake! The cleaner has more design faults than anything I have had over the last...

Russell Hobbs 13759 - Vacuum cleaner

It seems to do the job with dust hair and small particles of food etc but doesn't like going into corners or close to the skirting. Also very noisy ( a bit like standing next to a harrier jump jet) I've also found the two handles to be ambiguously...

Kenmore Upright Vacuum Cleaner Green Suede (3702)

I wish I had read everybody else's reviews before I bought it. This is a terrible vacuum. The handle release fell off and I can't get it back on. The on/off button is in an akward place. The attachments never stay on and I have lost one of them. It...

Hoover U8351-900 Windtunnel 2 Extra Reach Bagless Upright Vacuum

This vacuum actually worked for several months of very light use. Then when tasked with some heavy cleaning, the hose clogged, and so did the HEPA filter - it clogged so badly that the suction dropped to almost nothing. The HEPA filter is a "lifetime"...

Dirt Devil Envision Bagless Vacuum M086715

I did not realize that this vacuum was discontinued, but I am glad that it is! My roommates owned this vacuum and let me have it when they moved out, so I am glad that I did not actually pay for it myself because I would be very upset if I had! The...

Kambrook KHV200 / KHV250 Captiv12V

I bought this secondhand from a garage sale and it is definitely not worth the $5 I paid for it let alone the normal RRP price. Sucks dirt up then just spits it out of the vents. Umm what happened Kambrook? Didn't do any testing before releasing it on...

Hoover VC322 Helix

I have the Hover Helix VC322 and it is the worst vaccum i have ever had, it cuts out after a few mins and i have to wait 2 hours before i can use it again, and the suction dies after just a short while. It is not caused by the filter being full, as it...

Russell Hobbs 13760 - Vacuum cleaner

This vaccuum cleaner is a bag of crap. You need to manually pick up the hairs or anything visible to the eye. Best use for this is as a reverse hair dryer or a skip hire bulker.

Kärcher DS 5.800

I just completed the first hoovering of the flat and I can say I'm blown off. The most important thing it is filtering all the dust through water – differently from Dyson – and if you think about it, filtering through water will beat dry filtering...
