Vacuum Cleaners Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of vacuum cleaner would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
The vacuum is good takes a while to fill up, and having a house with 2 dogs it’s perfect for cleaning up there hair and mess!
Would definitely recommend to others who have pets or dogs
But wouldn’t pay over 200$ as you can get pet one in Godfrey’s for 100$
Got this vac for a bargain ($99) from Godfreys and it hasn’t missed a beat. Suction is still strong 4 months on after daily use and is easy to clean. Love that you have the option to lower the suction especially when vacuuming my couch. Wish the cord was a little longer but nothing an extension cord can’t fix

LOVE THIS vacuum cleaner
It's been a good Vacuum cleaner over the past 5 months - haven't had any issues with it and it came with that hand turbo brush which I absolutely love.
Overall: It's very quiet and convenient, it's small and affordable. I managed to get it on discount and haven't regretted it.
Okay vacc for a temp time
Vacc is very very loud which I dont like. Suction is what to expect. I find that the cord for the vac isnt that long so takes a while to do the whole house. Defintely suitable for a small house. Will do a short amount of time. Expected more as it being a hoover
Performs well has great suction, sucks up all the very fine dust particles that normally get left behind and stuck in your carpet. Great for removing pet hair from your clothes or furniture. Power Cord could be longer. I love how you can turn the suction up and down. Brilliant
suction is just part of the deal
Very short handle and hose. Even my wife has to stoop to use the machine. The cord is NOT particularly long....I added an extension...but, of course, that doesn't go into the machine when you are finished. Lightweight and easy to pull around. Suction is fine....with a 2200 W cyclonic motor. If you want to do carpets they recommend an additional attachment, although we use the one that came with it. (additional attachment costs extra) overall. ....... the stooping makes me NOT want to do the vacuuming. ...which is something I normally don't mind...doing. So unless you are a dwarf I wouldn't recommend it. Otherwise, if you are really short...then maybe this is for you. We got it to suck in pet hair....which it is supposed to be good at (So far so good in that department. )....and because it was in our budget.
Noisy But Good
We have a Newfoundland, which are double coat dogs so as you can imagine - hair everywhere. This does a reasonable job with Barron's hair but it is a bit plasticky feeling and noisy as anything when its running. It does have powerful suction and its pretty easy to empty but I still use a few paper towels to clean the inside off a bit and tipping it never gets it all out. Its OK, it could be improved in some ways but OK
It’s ok now
The suction was so strong I couldn’t push the vacuum across the floor and it was lifting my carpet up.
After a while it’s got better still hard to push but it does a great job of lifting dirt from the floors!!
Easy to empty and put back together.
Watch your fingers when trying to clean the fluff from the brush on the head it’s very sharp I cut my finger so deeply it’s scared.
Excellent for picking up alll the cat hairs.
The performance of tne pet vacuum is extremely good, i have onr for upstairs and one downstairs in my unit,as my two cats generate a lot of hair on the floors,easy to manage being bagless, empting made easy, and excellent suction on both of my vacuums. I would highly recommend tnis product.
Got sucked into the cheap promo at Godfreys for this thing. I did not want to hang around to listen to his sales pitch on them all, so grabbed the second cheapest bagless vacuum & figured i could not go wrong being a well know brand that's been around for ages... but i was wrong. Unless you want to wear a pair of earmuffs every time you clean, don't buy this piece of crap. You'll get industrial deafness. Don't think i'll buy that brand again. The suction isn't that bad but nothing impressive.
The cord is far too short to get any sort of distance from the power point too.

Excellent, only one con..
What a great little vacuum at an amazing price. Paid under $100 and received a free $99 steam mop! True to it's Hoover pedigree, it does the job, easily picking my pet hairs from the carpet and furniture. Sure, you can get machines with stronger suction, but at this price, it does more than you would expect from a vacuum at this price. Easily cleans pet hair off my carpet AND furniture. Got one for my mother who is 80 loves how light and easy to maneuver, it comes with extra accessories and is bagless...so easy to clean. You can even wash the f...ilters, so no extra expense for disposal environmentally unfriendly filters and bags. My only negative point is the shortness of the cord. I would not use this as my main vacuum for my large house, but it was not made for that purpose. For times you need something in between a main vacuum, you just can't go past this for the price (remember the free steam mop), convenience, low maintenance and environmentally friendliness.
Kmart vacuum does a better job
Terrible vacuum. I've only used it 4 time and it's lost suction, I've cleaned the filters and still nothing.
The cord is ridiculously short! It doesn't reach down my hall and it's not a long hall way.
Glad I only paid $99 and not $300! It's to worth $300 what so ever.
My Kmart vacuum does a better job.
I ve got this one too!!! massive yes after ALDIs one
I Absolutely love it it is so strong. better than 500dyson one that used at my friends. I use wind powered spinning brush attachment that i bought separately for my thick carpets and the brushing is so strong on these carpets. I also use diverter so that the rubbish doesnt go into the bagless area so I dont have to clean it as often. The mini spinner brush that comes with it is super efficient on my thick and long carpet but I already use bigger version of it and recommend everyone to get it as well as this vacuum cleaner manages to spin it wit...h power during full contact with carpets. I think I am Hoover's girl as I also bought their HOOVER PRO carpet cleaner and cant stop loving it. This vacuum cleaner is A YES YES YES. Of course I am a little crazy and look after my appliances. I clean and dry thouroughly after few uses and some after each use. So they all work and look like new after a years even. October 25th 2019 Update: I am in love, my shaggy rugs live new life This is my second purchase from Hoover range. I have thick expensive rugs with indented pattern, and 3 shaggy rugs each have different thread hair type and style. Suction is strong and I am making full use of the large rotary brush attachment that I purchased a while ago. The motor is aerial meaning the stronger the suction the better the brush does it's job. I am glad and recommend this over D+++N worth 500$ that I used to borrow when working as a cleaner.
For a very cheap product , it is great !
I was very Amazed at the suction on this vac seeing that i got it with a steam mop as well for $100 , which is insane really. The suction is very good and it is easy to empty. If you are on a budget and need a Hoover , go buy it but don't pay more than 100 bucks .
Good for the price
Purchased recently on sale at Godfreys. Upgrade after cheaper K mart one died. So far so good, seems strong, rolls well on carpet. I ahvent had an issue with length of chord, fine for an apartment. It is small so stores easy, I plan on emptying it each time which is fairly non fuss.
When I first used this vacuum cleaner, there were quite a few things I noticed that I wasn't happy about.
1: Very short cord
2: Filter is in cylinder, which leaves no space for dirt.
3: Awkward to empty cylinder to remove dirt because of the big filter inside.
4: Attached turbo head accessory was useless - would not pick up cat fur off rug or lounge.
5: Very noisy
Within the twelve months I owned it, a wheel broke off, the filter clip broke off, and the clip on the extendable rod also broke off.
Overall, the suction was not the best as even on hard floors, I found myself going over the same spot to pick up the smallest and lightest bits of dirt.
As good as you would expect for the price
It's light and okay on hard floors but tougher to use on carpet. Not particularly powerful, but does the job. Gets quite hot when used for a long period of time and could do with better attachments. The narrow attachment has a brush that can't be removed so not great for hoovering between things.
Great, does the job, excellent price
Suction is great, it’s much lighter than the Dyson we had and easier to manoeuvre. I vac both tiles and carpet in a 2 bedroom townhouse and can get this one up and down the stairs pretty easily. It’s also slender enough to sit on each step as I go up with it.
Great vac for the price.
I purchased this vac last year and I still am loving it.
Size/shape of the vac is nice and small - easy to stow away
Handle attachments are great to get hair off of carpets and cloth furniture
Can be pretty loud
Runs kind of hot at times ...
Hoover once upon a time was a great product!
I recently purchased the pet bagless vacuum from Godfreys. When first used it thought wow what a great vacuum sucks well then second time great again. Well on the third time nothing but drama lost suction thought must of sucked something up but NOPE NOTHING. the grill lid kept coming off so taped it down then it was extremely hot, hottest vacuum i have ever used. thought this can't be right. finished using it so took it back under warranty got it back but this time not a red grill a bright orange told me shouldn't come off anymore'' LOW AND BEH...OLD AND COMES OFF'' still get very hot a minute after using it dust is all over the vacuum. Verdict made in China rubbish i give it -00000000 out of 10 stars. So Hoover from the great brand you use to be you should be ashamed at the junk you are now selling. I am so disappointed and angry at this rubbish. HOOVER UP YOUR GAME AGAIN TO WHAT YOU USE TO BE LIKE. From not a happy customer Melanie
