Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner BH50010 Review

Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner BH50010 Review

If you are looking for a cordless, stick hardwood floor vacuum with a straightforward design, then the Hoover Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner BH50010 is a model I highly recommend. Sure, the Hoover Linx may not have a trendy, cool looking design like some higher end Dyson vacuums and it does not come with many brush attachments, but what you will get is outstanding performance at a very affordable price.

What I Like About The Hoover Linx Cordless Stick

Simple, Straightforward Design : The Hoover Linx may look like a stripped version of an upright vacuum, in terms of design. When compared to upright vacuums, the Hoover Linx weighs merely 7.3 pounds, which means that it is relatively lighter. Even for a stick vacuum, it is not too heavy. As far as features are concerned, the Linx is certainly very simple. A lithium-ion battery powers this vacuum cleaner that can be charged using the separate charger that comes with it Apart from turning off this vacuum, it can also be switched between two different cleaning modes, namely the suction only mode for hardwood and the suction and brush roll mode for carpets.

Outstanding Usability : Apart from being more compact and lighter than conventional upright vacuums, you will not have to search for an outlet or trip over a cord since it is battery-powered. Unlike other stick vacuum models, you will not find it a chore using the Hoover Linx, the reason behind which is its simple design. The power switch can be easily reached since it present at the top of the handle. Whether the suction-only or suction-and-brush-roll is being currently used can be seen by taking a look at the light indicator. The front of this vacuum cleaner also has an LED status bar that indicates when the battery needs to be charged. Moreover, there are no accessories, so you will not need extra storage space and it can be conveniently stored in a closet. You will not need a dock to charge the entire vacuum since it comes with its own battery charger and the battery itself will last between 15 and 20 minutes after being fully charged for 3 hours.

Impressive Performance : Many vacuum cleaners find it challenging to pick up spilled edibles like Cheerios & Goldfish. The Hoover Linx will pick them up completely from various flooring surfaces, including hardwood, low-pile carpets and mid-pile carpets. The Hoover Linx effectively collects such larger particles every time you use it Some vacuum cleaners also find it tough to handle pet hair, but the Hoover Linx will not because it will again pick up all pet hair from the same flooring surfaces mentioned above. As for smaller particles, the Hoover Linx may come up short but will still effectively pick up such particles in one or two passes.

Features & Specifications

  • As a stick hardwood floor vacuum cleaner, powerful performance will be delivered thanks to its cordless design.
  • The dust cup is bagless so it can be emptied easily without coming into contact with the dirt.
  • Air in your home will remain clean and dirt deep within your carpet will be effectively removed thanks to the Cyclonic filtration and WindTunnel technology.
  • A wide range of flooring can be covered with each pass since its clearing path measures 11 inches and its mouth is quite wide.
  • You can easily and quickly switch between cleaning carpets and hardwood floors with the flip of a switch.

You may discover that the Hoover Linx is slightly less maneuverable because its floor nozzle may not pivot enough. Perhaps the only major drawback is that you may have to invest in a backup battery if you spend more than 20 minutes on vacuuming.

Here’s a few of the things I don’t care for with this Dyson DC35:

Every good thing cannot be maximally perfect. This vacuum cleaner is expensive and not pocket-friendly compared to other vacuum cleaners in the market. With its short usage time of about 15min it might not be effective in terms of saving time. There is need to press the handle at all time for the suction to work and this is very uncomfortable and also painful.

The Verdict

Apart from the few disadvantages, the Dyson DC35 Digital Slim Multi Floor Cordless Vacuum Cleaner is an otherwise very good machine that would work well in any home, specifically those with hard floors. The benefits out weight the disadvantages. Although it is fairly expensive, you cannot go wrong with this model. It has been tested and tried, you are guaranteed 2-year warranty. When looking for a vacuum cleaner for hardwood this is definitely one of the best options . Dyson has outdone itself as this is one of the very best machines they have ever created.

I have two messy children, and I’m not exactly the cleanest of cooks, and let me just say, this floor steam cleaner can handle anything I throw at it! I really like how well it is able to maneuver as well cleaning in some of the hardest places to reach. I wasn’t sure I wanted a floor steam cleaner at first, but now I am so glad that I made the purchase to get the Bissell 1867 Steam Mop Bare Floor Steam Cleaner. I do suggest pulling it backwards, which they don’t specifically say in the manual. Doing so made the floor steam cleaner direct the steam directly to the floor, making for the best results. Believe or not, I actually can breathe better after using the floor steam cleaner. It truly is amazing! The Bissell 1867 Steam Mop Bare Floor Steam Cleaner is cost efficient since I don’t have to keep buying cleaner or pads. I do recommend using distilled water though!

However, with the Bissell 1867 Steam Mop Bare Floor Steam Cleaner, cleaning the kitchen floor is a breeze, and I don’t have to worry about my baby breathing in all those chemicals.

We have a marble floor at home, which is what I generally use it on, and man oh man, it heats up so quickly. I am able to clean the bathroom, hallways, and kitchen in less than 15 minutes, believe it or not. I never thought a floor steam cleaner would work so well. The price has come down on the Bissell 1867 Steam Mop Bare Floor Steam Cleaner since I first bought it, so its definitely worth purchasing if you haven’t already. I really love that it doesn’t use chemicals, and I’d recommend it to anybody who wants a floor steam cleaner for their home.

Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 Vacuum Review

The Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 vacuum is an upright, bagless model, that is made with pets in mind. This is one of the most popular models because it comes with a number of tools and features that make cleaning after pets easier.

Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 Upright Vacuum

With a weight of only 17.8 pounds, dual cyclonic air system and 12 amp motor, it makes vacuuming easy and fast. The Hoover patented WindTunnel technology traps and channels dirt into the dirt cup and minimizes scatter. These two systems ensure you get good suction and keep the dirt and particles from coming right back out after they’ve been picked up.

When you finish vacuuming, putting the machine away is quick and easy. The UH70210 comes with a 27-foot, auto rewind cord that works with just a tap of the pedal and the handle folds down for easy storage. All the hand tools are fit squarely onto different cabins on the device itself.

A foot pedal lets you turn off the spinning brush without having to bend. This feature makes the device able to work on both carpeted areas as well as hardwood and bare floors.

This model is particularly good for dealing with pet hair. It comes with an easy to clean air-powered pet hand tool. This tool features washable rubber blades and full suction to ensure that even the most stubborn pet hair is removed.

The Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 vacuum comes with three filters: a filter that can be rinsed and re-used, a high-quality HEPA filter, and a carbon filter that absorbs musty pet odors. In addition, the UH 70210 has a five-position height adjustment and controls that are right at your fingertips.

This model also features an eight-foot stretch hose, a 12-foot extension wand, as well as a number of onboard tools. These include a crevice tool, a dusting brush, and a powered hand tool, as well as the air-powered pet hand tool mentioned earlier.

The onboard tools, 8 foot hose and included attachments allow you to clean non-conventional areas like stairs, curtains and furniture

Taken together, these features allow you to move from carpets to bare floors to upholstery with ease and finally win the pet hair battle.

In order to keep this machine in tip top cleaning condition, you will need to do some maintenance. Hoover actually includes filter indicators where the sensor turns from green to red when the filter needs cleaning. The filter is reusable, so all it needs it rinsing through faucet water then dried off, saving you money over time.

The Hoover WindTunnel UH70210 vacuum has pros and cons, like any other product.


The UH70210 has many advantages, including:an easy to empty cup, rather than messy bags that rip and spill,powerful, WindTunnel action that picks up even the smallest particles,easy to clean air-powered pet hand tool with rubber blades, to get rid of pet hair once and for all,a suction-only option, to clean hard floors without damaging them,five surface height settings and a variety of tools that make cleaning along baseboards and furniture, and in tight corners easy and convenient,a 27-foot, auto-rewind cord that lets you clean large areas from a single plug,a headlight that illuminates dark corners and under furniture for thorough cleaning,a handle that folds down for easy storage in smaller spaces,a carbon filter that eliminates musty pet odors and leaves your home smelling fresh,a system check indicator that lets you know when the filters need to be changed,a bumper to protect furniture and walls, and a two-year limited warranty.


The UH70210 also has a number of drawbacks, including:insufficient reach with a stretch hose of only eight feet, which tends to try to retract,auto shutoff activates after 20 minutes of cleaning, and frustrating delays waiting for the auto shutoff to reset before you can restart the machine.

Dirt Devil FeatherLite Canister Vacuum Review

Dirt Devil FeatherLite Canister Vacuum Review

Dirt Devil FeatherLite CanisterDirt Devil is a company that was founded in 1905 and has been creating floor care products for a while now. Their line of products range from a variety of vacuum cleaners from upright to handheld, and they also have some steam cleaners.

Dirt Devil FeatherLite Cyclonic Canister Vacuum

For most homeowners, their products are work well for apartments and homes with small to average square footage. Most of their products come in the color red which has become their trademark. Though every now and then they’ll switch it up in some of their items.

Another common feature found in their items is the overall affordability in cost, making them a good value option for the budget conscious.

Works Well with Bare and Hard Floor Surfaces

This particular model, the Dirt Devil FeatherLite Canister Vacuum is light in weight and made to be compact. It is made to be used on both hard floors as well as carpets.

Weighing less than 10 pounds, and equipped with large round wheels makes this machine suitable for the more scratch susceptible hardwood floors. Tugging it around with you as you cover the different areas of your home won’t harm your bare flooring, whether they are made of wood or laminate wood materials.

It comes with a specially designed bare floor nozzle that has a retractable brush. You want to have that brush on there when vacuuming carpets because that’s the only way it’ll be able to push aside the fabric in order to jar the particles loose.

However, these bristles become an enemy to hard floors like wood and other wooden composite materials because of their ability to scrape and damage their finish. Which is why the retractable feature is important.

The bare floor nozzle with retractable brush lets you vacuum tiles and hardwood floors without damaging them

For the tough corners, using the crevice tool or even just the hose without any attachment often works best in plucking out the dirt that was pushed there.

Most of the controls are convenient located right at your fingertips on the upper part of the extension wand or at the nozzle area in the form of foot pedals.

With a 10 AMP motor and a 7.5 foot wand length, it is able to handle not just the floor care needs but also those that require long reach like ceilings and top of cabinet shelves. The handle is adjustable so you can set it to the best height for each job.

Some of the tools that come with this vacuum is the dusting brush and the crevice tool. This is a two in one combination piece which allows you to not only dust your house and high reach places like fans, but also aids in cleaning tight corners and spaces that normally don’t get cleaned often.

One of the more versatile attachments included is its upholstery cleaning tool. It gives the right tools to attach to the vacuum to clean couches, chairs, beds or anything of the sort. It also has a cyclonic filtration system. This means that it will filter the dirt more efficiently and properly.


Good Vacuum for your Money

As a whole, this canister vacuum offers excellent value. Though it does have some drawbacks. Because of the compact size, the motor can only be so big. Because of this, the vacuum can only be so powerful. While this works well in pretty much most areas of the home, it can be liability if you have thick carpeting, which requires strong suction power to get through the long strands of fabric.

Another issue it has is dealing with pet hair. While the FeatherLite is able to collect thick rounds of dog or cat hair, it isn’t always able to do it in the first pass. You’ll need one or a couple more passes to ensure that all the fur is lifted off the ground. So for people who care for animals, be it dogs or cats it may not be the ideal choice, though it can get the job done.

All in all, the Dirt Devil FeatherLite Cyclonic Canister is a very nice and efficient vacuum that will save time, and money for any family.
