This review is from: Hoover Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum with Canister, Bagged, UH30010COM (Kitchen)So far this vacuum is great. It has plenty of suction to pick stuff up off of the floor. It knows when its going from carpet to bare floors and adjusts automatically. I like the 35 foot cord, so your not changing the plug as much around the house. Also, when you want to vacuum under a coffee table, you don't need to step on a release so it can go lower, it's already released. I like the fact that the canister is separate. I hated all the hoses and attachments that were constantly falling off when you would vacuum with the old cleaner. The shoulder strap on the canister, allows you to get on a step stool or ladder and vacuum those high spots in your house that usually get neglected. You can also carry it to the garage and do the car real easy. The bags are a bit expensive, but really nice. They seal up when you remove them. That way your not getting a dust blow back in your face when you change the bag. They are a bit expensive, but in searching the internet for the bags, you can find them for a whole lot less than what Hoover is charging. Hoover is now a Chinese owned company out of Hong Kong. However, all vacs seem to be made in China now a days. The only American made vac is Riccar. Also, this Chinese company makes Dirt Devil, Milwaukee Tools, and Ryobi Tools as well. They've been manufacturing products like this for years.
The Platinum series comes with a good warranty and there are plenty of service centers in the Orange County, California area.
