Ho hum...


I turned this baby on and it was so loud I turned it off very quickly. The plastic it is made from was vibrating harmonically with the beater bar. When I got the courage to turn it back on again, I pressed the button with my toe to unlock the ...

Many attachments, fair suction power, no bag, and good filter system.

Too loud, can't turn off the beater bar, flimsy and the attachments fall off.

Good Suction, Terrible Design for Emptying Dirt Cup


I'm a true blue Hoover fan. I wanted to replace my 18 year old Hoover upright bagged vacuum (which is still going and never had any problems!) with a new Hoover model that would be good at picking up cat hair from carpet and upholstered ...

Great suction power really lifts dirt out of carpet. Easy to push. Nice looking. Compact.

You wear the dirt when emptying the dirtcup and cleaning the filter.

Clumsy, cheap plastic that breaks easily, messy to empty

Great vacuum for the money

Filter clogs too easily, tools don't star attached to vacuum

This review is for the U5173-900. First, I will say that this is an excellent vacuum cleaner. I continue to be impressed with it's cleaning ability, even after owning it for a year. When I moved into my apartment the carpets were cleaned with a ...

Awesome cleaning power on carpets.
