Product Description

The Turbo Cyclonic has multiple cyclones that separate dirt at a high velocity, meaning long-lasting suction power, and less cleaning and changing of the filter. With a bottom empty, clean release dirt cup, you'll never have to get your hands dirty. The HEPA filtration system traps 100% of dust and allergens, and releases clean, fresh air back into your home. Also, the handle converts to a long-reaching extension wand for above-floor cleaning and hard-to-reach areas.

This is just a terrible vacuum. I've had it for about a year and every time I use it I want to chuck it out the window. I don't want to pony up for a new one but I just can't stand this piece of crap anymore. It leaves just as much dirt and dust laying around as it sucks up. Dirt and carpet fibres get stuck in the hose over time and it's impossible to clean because you can't take the main hose coming from the base off. Believe me I've tried to clean this thing, you can't get it clean enough to avoid the clogs. The more clogs, the stinkier it gets as well.

The design is awful, the gap inside the chamber where the dirt enters isn't big enough, and dirt/carpet fibers just get stuck. You have to empty the thing every 5-10 minutes and you actually have to reach inside the container to pull out the gunk that's stuck. I just cannot believe how crappy the design is. Do they even test this crap before trying to sell it? I wouldn't pay $1 for this garbage vacuum.

The suction power is probably the worst thing about this vacuum. It can take 4-5 runs over one piece of lint/string/dirt before it picks it up. Not only that but when you detach the hose from the base to try and do edges/corners by hand, you need to drag the base around with you as the length is only a couple feet. The suction power is so weak even putting the hose over a piece of kleenex/paper doesn't work, you have to pick up the dirt and feed it into the hose! Pathetic!

Absolutely my last Hoover. I thought products and technology were supposed to get better over the years? Seems Hoover has gotten much, much worse.

HASH(0xa1996e40) out of 5 stars Heavy and Stinky Feb. 23 2010
By Sashamellow - Published on
This vacuum is the heavy and awkward to push around--I have owned other vacuums, and never had any trouble pushing one before. It sucks up dust and dog hair okay, but leaves the room in a terrible dusty smell (i.e. you cannot vacuum without having the windows open for a day--not practical in winter or summer). It smells like it shoots out as much dust as it sucks in. We have only had this machine for 6-7 months--it was smelling bad almost after 1 month--even with trying to clean it out between uses. I am not happy with this purchase.

HASH(0xa5413c00) out of 5 stars Hoover vac Feb. 19 2011
By Awarebuyer - Published on
I always do my homework before a purchase. I knew Hoover's are loud so no complaints. They really aren't way out of line there. That's the price of a strong suction. I too disagree with the negative reviews. This is a powerful vacuum cleaner that does a thorough job picking up pet hair and everything else it is designed for. I don't notice any dust blowing around or any obnoxious odor if I put all the filters back after cleaning and properly seating the removeable debris holder. If those components aren't installed correctly then dust blowing can occur. It isn't hard to push around and my wife and I are in our mid 70's (yes, I am a male vacuumer). Homework also reveals the weight so no problem there either. Other than normal wear the belts last as long as comparable vacuums. Of course if I mis-use it then they won't. By that I mean running over rug tassles, toys, etc. It is not designed to accomodate those items. I recommend this and I only paid $79. I knew what I was buying! Can't beat the value/price.

HASH(0xa082a168) out of 5 stars last Hoover for me March 11 2011
By Kristina R - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa0d3eba0) out of 5 stars Don't buy!!!! Dec 29 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
This vacuum is horrible. It overheats during a routine vacuuming and shuts off. It sucks up dog hair, but the hair gets trapped in the hose. I've had it for a little over a year and it's stopped working.

HASH(0xa16a5a44) out of 5 stars Stopped working after using for only 5 months Aug. 27 2010
By fairReview - Published on
The vacuum cleaner stopped working within 5 months of purchase because the belt was torn. When I called Hover customer service, they told me the belt was not covered in the 1-yr warranty (surprise!). I used the vacuum cleaner only 7-8 time since I bought it, and the usage was pretty light for which the belt should not tear. Would not recommend anyone this product because its poor in quality.
