In Love


I heard raves about this from someone I know with a carpet and wood floor home and knew I had to get it since I have carpet and tile and very messy 5 year olds. It\'s so light and powerful, much better than my Riccar Supra Lite which costs 3 times as...

Lightweight but heavy duty!


Great little vac, but the short battery life prevents me giving it my highest recommendation. But definitely the way of the future - great suction, easy on the wrists, eyes, ears, and easy to store. A child can use this - hmmmm.....

Finally a Good Cordless Hardwood/Area Rug Vacuum


We got this because we wanted a vacuum to go over our hardwood floors and area rugs without having to connect to a wall outlet. This picks up cat hair, dirt, food particles, dry cat food -- all the things that the other cordless vacuums missed. The...

Cordless, bagless, larger dirt container; picks up heavy dirt

Consumer review by:

fast, easy, and efficient


have finally solved the problem of having to switch out different tools on my main vacuum. With this Hoover I can do the small area rugs and bare floors and use the big vacuum for the larger carpeted areas. One of our best buys from Best Buy. The...

does great on small rugs

small waste storage

Consumer review by:

This is the best cordless vacuum cleaner


I have a huge house, wooden and carpet flooring. I really use this in my kitchen a lot, picks up dirt so fast. I just love the cordless, just lets me go where ever I want. This is so light. Better than a broom. This vacuum replaces my central vac and...

No cord, very very light, does carpet and wood floors, easy to clean

I don't know

Consumer review by:

It works well, but has some design flaws


I thought that this would be a good replacement for my electrolux that died, but really did not like it and returned it for a Dyson. Very stiff and hard on the wrist. If you tilt it the head remains up off the floor and you have to push it down with...

Good suction

No removable unit for tight areas, head has no swivel, will not fit under dressers, etc

Consumer review by:

Great for quick pick ups


I needed something to pick up dog food crumbs since I did not want to pull out my regular vacum for this, and it works well. It not only picks up the crumbs, it gets alot of dog hair that I did not even realize was there. Since I have 4 dogs, there is...

Easy to use, switches from floor to carpet with a flick of a switch

battery does not last as long as I like

Consumer review by:

Works well, does it's job


The Linx vacuum does just what we wanted - works well on hard surfaces, adequately on carpet. We use it on the steps where a light, cordless vacuum with both suction and brush cleaning make it more effective than a simple suction unit. Battery life...

Light, easy to operate

More expensive than other vacuums
