The Hoover Windtunnel Supreme Bagged Upright Vacuum is an AWESOME vacuum! It cleans VERY well at a fraction of the price of a good quality vacuum on the market these days. The DEFINITE pluses include the embedded dirt finder and the onboard attachments. Though I am in love with this vacuum because of its cleaning capabilities and the convenience of the onboard attachments, it certainly has its flaws. The vacuum is heavy, a tad on the noisy side, and sometimes trips the circuit breaker. When I have the hose stretched out while using the attachments, the heaviness of the vacuum causes it to tip over. When the vacuum tips, it usually either hits me or nearby furniture. Ouch! While I appreciate the GREAT suction/cleaning power of this vacuum, caution must be exercised so that nearby cords, fabric, etc. don't get accidently 'sucked' underneath/into the vacuum. Regarding issues not related to the vacuum itself, I sadly can no longer find original Hoover parts anywhere! Also, all the local Hoover stores have been closed. Years ago when I entered the Hoover store on a whim, I was not even in the market for a vacuum. But, was sold on this particular model because of the Hoover salesperson's one-on-one thorough and knowledgeable presentation and demo. Unfortunately, access to such service is a thing of the past regarding the Hoover line of vacuums.
