I was very excited about this product, as we have a very spacious apartment, and the cordless feature meant I wouldn't have to worry about the limitations of a too-short cord. With two hairy, shedding cats, the vacuum is used on a daily basis. The generous six-year warranty (plus two years for the battery), combined with all the positive reviews on Amazon made me confident it would be a great product.

We are on our second Hoover Linx cordless vacuum. The first one was exchanged after four months (at the store from which we purchased it) because the red plastic suction tube inside the canister chipped and broke.

Our second Hoover Linx has been a disaster. Less than a year later, the battery life is only about 2/3 of the short 20 minutes it was when the product was brand new. This, despite the fact that we have been very diligent in following the proper lithium-ion battery recharge protocol. I used to be able to vacuum our entire apartment, including using the roller brushes for the carpeted bedrooms. Now, I have to do the job in two phases, and it takes about two hours for the battery to recharge in between.

The same piece that broke on our first vacuum is already showing a hairline crack, so I know that's going to give any day now.

This morning, the motor started causing a burning smell whenever I turned on the roller brushes.

I have been trying to contact Hoover for warranty service all day, to no avail. Because we are past one year since the original purchase, I cannot return it to the store we bought the first one from. Now I can tell that I'm going to be in for a lengthy and inconvenient warranty repair/replace process.

Best cordless stick vacuum (with motorised brush) available. Lightweight, easy to assemble (1 screw) , 15 minutes operating time, no bags or hard to handle filters. Two thumbs up!

This is a mixed review. Purely as a vacuum, I give it 4 stars. Reliability... 2 stars.

I used it for 2 years in a 900 sq ft apartment, carpet and hardwood, with a fuzzy cat. It has great suction power, is very easy to maneuver, lightweight, and being bagless, cost-free maintenance. It made me enjoy vacuuming. Now in a small house for a year, I realize it doesn't have enough range due to battery life, but I can't complain - that's not what it was designed for.

My biggest gripe is with its reliability:
1. The small bearings in the power brush overheat and melt the plastic spindles they rub against. Through many melt/cool cycles, the head will eventually stop turning or the belt will burn up. I've had to disassemble the head on 3 occasions to reshape the bearing housings.
2. The electrical wires for the power head snake through the swivel joint. Over time, the wires will eventually shred. The first time, I re-insulated and soldered the wires back together. When it happened a second time, it was clearly a design fault. I've drilled holes and routed the wiring on the outside to bypass the swivel joint. No chance of failure now =)
3. Not so much an issue of reliability, but more of inconvenience, the cyclone doesn't deal well with my wife's long hair - its regular maintenance to go through the red canister piece with a pair of scissors.
4. The above holds true for my parents - they received a free replacement while it was under warranty, but I do the repairs now. My sister should have consulted me before buying.

Apart from the above woes, this piece of hardware has made vacuuming enjoyable for me. I do it more frequently and feel good about having a clean house. I still plan to use the stick vacuum to gather up kitty litter, but with new needs and hours of reading reviews, I'm on my to pick up a Miele S4 this afternoon. Happy vacuuming!

It's a great little vacuum with lots of power. It gets terribly abused but keeps on working. If the battery lasted longer it would be used constantly. I've used it so much the rubber has worn off the handle.

I very rarely give reviews for products but I've been so impressed with the Hoover Linx that I had to talk about it. Lightweight, good suction, 15 minute battery, and easy to clean out'. It's really a great vacuum. I have a Golden Retriever. He shed like crazy and this little vacuum works magic. I've tried other vacuums (Dirt Devil etc.) but nothing has come close to doing the job. I recently had back surgery so I needed something lightweight, especially on the stairs. This vacuum does everything I need it to. Not only does it work well on floors (hardwood and ceramic) but it also does a very good job on carpet. I hope the battery holds up. It might seem expensive, but it's not worth spending less money on a vacuum that won't do what it needs to do', or break down and lose it's suction in a month (it happened to me). If you need a small vacuum like this one', I'd truly recommend it. The only thing I would have liked; 'I wish the battery lasted about 5 more minutes. Also, make sure that you take out the battery to recharge it after every use. I've run into situations where I've run out of battery after only a few minutes because I didn't recharge it after a previous use. Now I use it until it runs out of battery and then recharge it every time. No problems.
