If you're familiar with "air hockey," you can imagine how the Constellation moves. It glides on a cushion of air, and therefore moves around very easily. However, this wonderful feature has a drawback you have to get used to; if you set the Constellation down in a pile of dust, the dust in the immediate area gets blown around. The way to avoid this is to vacuum from a clean area, toward a dusty area, always keeping the vacuum behind you, in a clean area. This may sound like a pain, but I find it easy to do, and the ease with which the Constellation moves makes up for having to adopt a new cleaning method.

In 1970 I was given a 1950's vintage Constellation that had been in continuous use. I used it happily until 2004, when it finally broke down. That makes about 50 years of service. In all those years, the only maintenance was a new cord.

When I started shopping for a replacement, I was sadly disappointed. I looked at everything on the market, and found shoddy materials and hard-to-use products. I finally settled on an expensive Ghibli designed for industrial use. It has a long cord, large bags, good suction, and is sturdy. But it doesn't follow me around like the Constellation did.

So, when I saw that Hoover was once again making the Constellation, I bought myself a brand new one. I was afraid Hoover might have made negative improvements, but most features match the original, and all materials are sturdy. The one disappointment is the heaviness of the tube (wand). Luckily I had saved the attachments from my old Constellation, and was able to use my old, light-weight alluminum wands. I have only wood and tile floors, with a few throw rugs, so when I vacuum, I use only the crevice tool.

We have a Dyson for the carpets, but it's actually heavy and not easily used on stairs. The Constellation actually fulfills quite a niche. It's quiet, has very good power, well made components; and floats easily from Pergo/Wooden floors to carpet.

The Constellation is well made and is not like most cheap plastic models on sale in large box stores.

I highly recommend it!

I am SO happy with my purchase. I have exclusively hardwood floors and this vacuum is a dream. The motor is much, much quieter than my just retired 10 year old Hoover, and it glides across the floor effortlessly - a gentle tug by the user and it glides (seems to float) in the direction you tugged. HEPA filtered bags! (I have allergies, hence no carpets). It is sturdy and well made, and though made of metal is much lighter than my previous plastic hoover. I think it will be easier to keep IT clean as well, my previous hoover had many crevices on the surface into which dust/dirt eventually settled that was impossible to remove. If you have all/mostly/lots of hard floors, you can't go wrong here.

Amended 8/27: I have discovered one frustrating feature to this vacuum. There is no easy way to wind the power cord for storage. It has a place where it belongs, at the base of the ball-shaped canister, but actually winding it is a real pain. I needed to detach the vacuum head, and somehow manage the tubing over my shoulder since I need two hands to wind (it's hard to explain!). I wrapped it around my neck (like a big snake in a tourist photo) and kept it there while clumsily winding. It's awkward, to say the least. That being said, I still love my vacuum.

We purchased the Constellation because we have always had reliable service from our Hoover appliances and wanted to try the Constellation's novel "floating" feature, but this did not make up for its heavy weight and awkward shape. It is especially difficult to rewind the long cord around the base for storage; a retractable cord is almost a necessity with this design. The machine does have good suction and the metal parts will probably last forever, but if the floating capacity ever gives out it will be like dragging around a canon ball. We had to return it. We finally settled on a Panasonic MC-3920 which is tiny and lightweight and does a good job on our hard-finish floors. For carpets we use a Eureka upright.

We bought the constellation and then returned it for a refund. We have all laminate flooring thoughout the house and at first were very satisfied with the strong suction of the vacuum. However, I soon grew tired of the thing slamming into furniture and even into ME. It floats almost too effortlessly! If you work too fast with it the canister sails quickly towards you or anything else in its path and WHAM. It does not leave marks on furniture, but it's rather a pain (literally) when it bumps into your ankles. Another thing I did not like was the fact that it will blow pet hair and dust bunnies into the air that are hiding under furniture. I keep a pretty clean house, but underneath things pet hair and dust collect in between vacuumings. When I begin vacuuming and get near a dresser or couch with the canister stuff from underneath these items starts blowing into the air. The third thing I did not like about it, and probably the thing that most annoyed me, was it has no retractable cord. There really is no easy or convenient way to store the cord once you're done vacuuming. We returned it for a refund and plan to buy something else.
