Customer Reviews of Hoover BH50010 Linx Platinum Cordless Stick Vac
I now love to vacuum3/18/2014
We have 5 cats and the hair on our large area rug was unsightly every day. We now take the little Hoover out daily or even bi-daily to take care of it. No cables to unwind and drag around. It takes all but 2 minutes. Emptying it is easy and very gratifying when you see all that came up. I always hated vacuuming before. Now me and my husband compete over who gets to do it next.
Best stick vac6/18/2012
After trying serveral stick vacuums, this one is the best one I found. Quick, light, and does an all around great job.
Power and Convenience6/10/2012
Best stick vac for carpet, long battery life, 11-inch-wide nozzle, edge-cleaning bristles. The plastic dust bin is extremely easy to empty, push a button and dump in the trashcan.
Best Cordless Vacuum on the market5/24/2012
I bought this vacuum 3 years ago and haven't had an issue since. With regular maintenance I have only had to replace one filter. It isn't intended as a replacement for a full sized vacuum, however for a quick session on carpet and hard surfaces it is incredible and the WindTunnel technology means less frequent vacuuming with the full size. The battery life is good, especially considering the power doesn't fade until the last few seconds of life. It does require regular cleaning to maintain the great suction, but that is true of any vacuum. I have been very satisfied and would undoubtedly buy again.
Hoover Platinum Linx Stick Vacuum10/3/2011
Much better than Shark Broom. GREAT for arthritic hands. Not quite as good as a regular canister vac, but close. Light and easy to maneuver, holds charge well.
Just What We Were Looking For9/21/2010
We have a Dyson Animal vacuum that we just love, but with two Rat Terriers and a lot of wood floor, we needed a vacuum that was powerful AND cordless. The Hoover Linx fits the bill perfectly. It picks up dog hair and dirt with no problem, and the edge cleaning is very good. The battery lasts just long enough for me to clean the entire house--about 1600 square feet; however, I only have two small rugs and no carpet. I use the Dyson once a week for major cleaning and the Hoover Linx every day for touching up. Please don't buy this vacuum to replace a powerful, corded vacuum, as you may be disappointed. Buy it for what it was intended for and you will be happy. The service from Buy.com was very good, as always. We did extensive comparison shopping and found Buy.com to also have the very best price. The vacuum arrived in about three days and in great shape. What more can you ask?
should come with spare battery8/17/2010
Everything about this unit is great & I would'nt even mind the short battery life if it came with a spare battery. Hoover ya just gotta make this part of yr package & it won't be beat!!!
