Hoover has done it again with the creation of The Hoover Platinum Collection Lightweight Bagged Upright vacuum.
Hoover has been around for many, many years creating and innovating vacuums, so it’s no surprise that each and every one of their vacuums is made and performs well.
The real question is, does it have the features, design and quality that is needed for cleaning? To determine this it’s important to list the best and least attractive features available on this bagged upright vacuum.
WindTunnel Technology and HEPA bag
This vacuum cleaner features Hoover’s patented Windtunnel technology. Combined with direct air-flow technology, dirt is extracted from your carpet in less time than other vacuums on the market. More debris is collected with each pass of the vacuum, so you will ultimately spend less time cleaning.
The Hoover Platinum also offers HEPA bags that trap 99.97% of dirt, dust and pollens down to 0.3 microns. Essentially, this means that the air quality is much better than products that use standard paper bags.
The HEPA bags are self-sealing, so there is no chance of any puffs of dust escaping out of the sides. The check bag indicator illuminates when it is time to empty the bag, which is handy as it prevents the bag from becoming too full.
A real plus point of this Hoover vacuum cleaner is the fact that you are actually purchasing two vacuums for the price of one. As well as the upright, you also get a lightweight but powerful canister vacuum.
The canister includes several attachments including a crevice tool, dusting brush, and hard floor attachment for cleaning stairs and hard to reach areas. The canister has a shoulder strap for easy carrying, and all the attachments are carried on the canister which means switching between them is easy.
The telescopic wand is also extendable, so there really is nowhere that can’t be cleaned!

Customer Reviews and Scores
The Hoover Bagged Upright vacuum has received over 2000 reviews on Amazon to date. It has an impressive 4.2 stars out of a possible 5.
Most of the reviews say the vacuum is easy to use because it is so lightweight, with one user saying ” Light weight and great suction; nicely put together and quiet as vacuums go!” and another saying “Lightweight, powerful, goes from floor to carpet with no adjustment.”
A couple of the reviews mention the fact that the canister vacuum is not well made and breaks easy. When I tested this model, I have to say I was actually impressed with how sturdy the vacuum was. Perhaps there was a faulty batch of the models made, in any case you get a five year warranty with this vacuum so if there any problems you will be able to get it repaired or get a replacement.
The amount of positive reviews combined with the low number of complaints means that I have no hesitations in also recommending the Platinum Collection vacuum by Hoover.
The Hoover Platinum Collection Lightweight Bagged Upright vacuum is an excellent mid-range priced vacuum. Hoover is a well-known and trusted company in the world of vacuums, and the list of positives combined with the low price compared to other vacuums on the market make this a product well worth considering.
