I bought this item from the HSN but then found it cheaper here on amazon.com (of course, DOH!). This is a perfect tool for cleaning up light spots on the carpet but does not do the same job as a more heavy-duty carpet steam cleaner. The pluses are that you can store it with the soapy water in the canister, and it is light and easy to manuever. I use it mostly to do spot cleaning; for example, cleaning up after my cat's furballs. It is always an event to have to break out the large steam cleaner, but this is an easy tool to grab, use, and return to the closet. The brushes on the bottom of the cleaner do not move (they aren't agitated), which is the norm with the heavy duty steam cleaners; however, I like this feature better for regular use as it will not have as much wear and tear on the carpet. I give this appliance 4 stars out of 5. It is a good supplementary cleaning tool but not a must-have.

As the mom of twin toddlers you can not imagine the things that end up on the carpet: juice, milk, ground in crackers/cheese, flung food, vomit, pee, and poo. No matter how much I cleaned the carpet by hand after an accident I knew I wasn't getting a thorough clean.
The vacuum is supremely light and small compared to other carpet cleaners I've tried and I wanted a vacuum I wouldn't dread having to pull out.
I just recently used it and it was simple and easy to use...is it strange, I get a thrill at seeing how dirty the water gets?

Just to point out, I recvd a defective vacuum the 1st time and Amazon's great customer service promptly sent me a new one. I returned the defective item which was simple and easy....that's my theme: simple, easy.

This is the answer to most home owner's ongoing 'clean-up' needs.
Whether it's pet accidents or everyday spills...this light weight shampooer
hits the mark. You're much more likely to zip this thing out of the hallway
closet and catch those oops' before they become permanent 'I forgot to's'.
I've had more heavy duty shampooers but found them way to cumbersome
to bother with. And it doesn't leak!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Note: While the product box does NOT say SteamVac, the listing on this site calls it that. This is NOT a SteamVac! You add hot water to the unit, there is no heating or steaming functionality.

I'll cut to the chase and say that I'm no big fan of the Hoover Quick and Light Carpet Cleaner. I do have an expensive heavyweight steam cleaner that I rarely use due to the fact that it's a chore and I'm lazy! So I thought the Quick and Light might make my life a bit easier. At best, this unit might help pick up fresh spills that have not set in. But it comes nowhere close to fulfilling the other promises that its packaging indicates. You would not want to utilize this product for a full room, and it simply doesn't have the ability to handle established high traffic stains. Trust me, I realize that for convenient products, it is best to have reasonable expectations. In no way did I anticipate that this would be a full fledged cleaning alternative. But even with lowered expectations, the machine frustrated me more than I thought possible.

Perhaps the biggest disappointment is in the promise of "5 Scrubbing Rows of Brushes." This is rather misleading as there is no scrubbing action at all as the brushes don't rotate or do much of anything. The only scrubbing action is provided by the user. With limited suction, I basically just got my carpet wet as I tried to power up enough physical force to get the brushes into my carpet. It didn't affect set-in stains or traffic areas one bit. Just made the carpet wet and matted.

Plus:
The unit is lightweight and reasonably portable.
Easy to assemble.

Cons:
Brushes don't scrub.
Minimal Suction.
Not A SteamVac, no matter what the product title says.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was anxious to test out the carpet cleaner so my hope was that any required assembly would be minimal. First glance at this section of the instructions and it was clear there wasn't sufficient detail provided. For example, it would have been nice if somewhere it was written to remove the clean water tank before attaching the midsection to the base unit since the bolt holes are located behind it. Yeah, I admit that I wasted time looking for the bolt holes - some help from the instructions would have been appreciated.

The directions also appear to indicate all of the bolts are the same size, which may cause the user to install them in the wrong places. There are three bolt sizes, the smallest goes in the middle behind the clean water tank, with the two medium sized bolts going on either side of it. The longest bolt is used to attach the upper handle to the midsection. All of the nuts fit into six-sided receptacles so it is easy to determine which way they need to be inserted. A large Phillips screwdriver is required to tighten the bolts. Once I located the bolt holes, total assembly took less than 10 minutes.

This is my first home carpet cleaner. Usually I rent the units at the grocery stores or have a professional company do the job. The convenience of having a machine readily available at home is appealing, but I was skeptical of how well such a small lightweight unit like this would work. The carpeted area in my home is about 1200 square feet plus a set of fifteen stairs. Because of its size, the Hoover looks like perhaps it would best serve for light clean-up - spills and for use in between a commercial carpet cleaning, but the result was surprisingly good.

I vacuumed the carpet before beginning the cleaning process and realized I need a new vacuum cleaner.
