Well I said I wouldn't buy another Hoover after the last one (self-propelled Wind Tunnel - no suction and belt broke after 1 month) but I took a chance and got the Turbo Cyclonic. I won't complain about the suction, it's good enough and better than the last light weight Dirt Devil I bought, and I won't complain about the noise - I could care less how noisy it is, I want it to clean. What I will complain about is two things - one, the "carpet level adjuster" just spins without adjusting anything. I turned it upside down and examined it and it just doesn't come anywhere close to the wheel assembly - poorly manufactured. Second, I thought the handle would remove easily to use the tools but you have to remove the hose at the bottom and attach it to the handle tube anyway so what's the difference? With my $40 DD I had to remove the hose to attach it to the tools, I'm no better off. In fact I'm worse off because with the bagged vacuums, you only change the bag once every two months or so, with the bagels vacuums, you have to clean it out after every use. What's the commotion over bagless vacuums??! When I took my last Hoover in to be fixed after one month I was told (by a Hoover rep no less) "Don't buy expensive vacuums, they're all garbage - buy a cheap one and use it till it breaks." That's when I bought the $40 DD which lasted these 2 years so I guess I got my money's worth. No more Hoovers for me.
