Rated 4 out of 5 by Kimber565 Quiet and lightweight vac
This vacuum cleaner is lightweight and easy to convert with the hose attachment. It is also nice and quiet and easy to empty the dirt container. I also really like the longer cord.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DD312 DO NOT BUY THIS VACUUM!
I purchased this vacuum due to it being on sale a a price of $69.99 which was $100. off the normal price. It had good reviews and seemed a great deal. After using this cheap piece of junk I would NOT purchase another. Its made of cheap plastic and you cannot adjust the floor/carpet roller. It sucks very well, as a matter of fact because it sucks so hard you cannot maneuver it on carpet. IF it had a height adjustment for carpet it would be much better. Its made VERY CHEAP and I urge you to STAY AWAY from this unit. I've learned my lesson......when you buy cheap, you get cheap!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Latera Very Disappointed
Very disappointed! It did not perform like HSN showed in there segment. It was bogus!! Then 6 months after i purchased it the main hose broke, with normal usage. The warrenty refused to repair it. Even thiu is was a 2 years warrenty. And HSN would not take it back. I feel i was scammed. I expected better from Hoover.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TJudd Makes an AWESOME modern art conversation piece if you don't need to clean !!
Yup - this baby works great if you want to sit it in the corner and use for a coat rack, or draw a smiley face on the canister while you contemplate the good old days a year ago when it used to work, or even use it as a reminder that it's time to stop buying things with limited warranty because you'll just find yourself here trying to figure out how to fix it.
She was happy when she first got it because she's my super freak - cleaning freak that is, and oddly enough loves to clean - and that works for us because admittedly I'm kind of a slob. Hey, I'm working on it and remembered to take off my shoes before writing this review - so there's progress =)
Who could have know that it would require more time trying to figure out issues than actually using it? Sometimes, limited suction as I gave it a pep talk and said " Come on baby - you can pick up that feather " and with motor over matter and focused concentration, humming along " I think I can, I think I can " - it often did like the little vacuum that could.
Then the brushes stopped turning, but being a glass half full kind of guy, I searched the net to find this great site with videos to try that did nothing to solve the problem but at least I met you, so there's that!
It looks like I'm now part of the growing Windtunnel regret club. Was I supposed to bring a dish to pass?
What happened to Hoover from our younger days when the name itself was synonymous with quality and what we thought of when someone said vacuum, like we do now with facial tissues and just say Kleenex for any kind? (Note to self - my UK friends still say "Hoover it" instead of vacuum it, even if it's a Dyson - but then again they weigh things in stones and are obsessed with tea time - so we should just let that go, don't ya think?)
Well, back on topic as I sometimes have the attention span of fruit fly, I tried all the suggestions, checking for obstructions, making sure the brushes moved freely, and even - while feeling like it might be a Hoover practical joke like hunting snipe, unplugged it and held down the brush button to see if it reset. Then tried it again, and again.
Nothing, zero, ziltch, nada, the poor brush motor must have given up the ghost and is now in a better place in brush motor heaven, but still sad to lose him in his youth as the vacuum was not very old.
Can we have a moment of silence for all the Windtunnel vacuums and parts that had their lives cut short while still young? And maybe another for those that really loved the Hoover brand but found they are now out of luck.
No canned reply needed from customer service as I've already tried to give it VPR, a version of CPR for the poor Windtunnel, live no where near a service center, and don't keep receipts for things I have confidence will last. May it rest in peace.

Good luck ever finding filters for it. Can't use the thing because we can't find filters anywhere!
