I didn't think this would suck so good!!

What a wonderful product. The Hoover Air Cordless 3.0 vacuum is just what i was looking for. Battery powered products are the wave of the future. From leaf blowers to vacuums, everyone is getting rid of their cords. I did a lot of research when looking for a vacuum that could meet all of my needs and finally settled on the Hoover Air Cordless.
The two lithium ion batteries it comes with are wonderful which gives you awesome flexibility with each battery having a good 50 minutes of run time. I have carpet and tile and the vacuum transitions onto both surfaces nicely. It also has a feature to stop the brush from spinning if you have soft floors that might be damaged, just by the push of a button. i can get up in the morning, pull out the vacuum and go over the living room, kitchen, and hallways in 10 minutes, walking from room to room without turning it off or moving a cord. Vacuuming the stairs is also simple given its light weight design and, you guessed it, NO CORDS! The only thing i don't really care for is removing the handle for the extension attachment. It doesn't work that well on furniture but i guess it would be ok for blinds or lights. The issues are that it significantly reduces suck power and also can leave the handle dirty. The handle of the vacuum detaches and plugs into an extension hose on the unit. But the opening on the handle where the hose attaches is exposed when it is its normal position on the cleaner. If you used it all the time i would imagine it would get kind of gross and need to be cleaned, as it will be right by your hand and visible while cleaning. still, its an amazing device, even without using that feature.
My wife and i purchased a Rainbow vacuum a few years ago and for those of you who have one or have seen one, know you can't just go vacuum something up in 2 minutes. I payed over $1500 for that vacuum and now purchased the Hoover air as a more practical cleaning tool for my home for quick clean ups, and i have the Rainbow for deeper cleanings. I do not believe the Hoover Air should be the primary vacuum i your home, especially if you are a crazy vacuumer type. I vacuum a few times a week, not 5 times a day as some of the other reviewers do. I believe with that much use then there is a good chance the Hoover will not last. It feels of good quality but doesn't feel any better than a normal bag less or stick vacuum. As much as i love it, i would not be surprised if i am repairing or pursuing a new one in a year or two. I'll do it though. Dyson reviews (at three times the cost) don't offer any more confidence in their product. Get the Hoover Air!
