This product sucks, but how?

byrjbeaulieu Dec 18, 2010
Helpful? 1 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Easy to Use, Easy to Empty
Cons Poor Quality, Ineffective
Recommended it? No

After about a year, the hose developed a short, so would go off whenever I tilted it in a particlar way.  I couldn't find the basis for this problem.  Then, the power nozel wouldn't work consistently.  Finally, the extension piece (the metal piping that connects between the machine...

Cons Some plastic elements seem a little vulnerable and fragile
Recommended it? Yes

I have only had it the new vacuum for a few weeks and so far I am pretty satisfied. Mind you I am comparing this vacuum against a pretty old hoover canister (10yrs+ maybe even 20) and a 6 year old hoover upright (that died).

First thing I like: it's quieter than I am used to for a vacuum... Read full review »


Fabulous vacuum but pain in the booty to maintain!

Pros Super strong suction. Really gets down to the nitty gritty dirt in your carpets.
Cons Too many problems with the mechanics. Warranty doesn't cover long enough.
Recommended it? No

I have had this vacuum for over a year and a half. I love that it is so thorough and really sucks up the dirt in my deepest pile carpets. This was my first cannister vacuum. I am sorry to say that I now hate it and want to move back to an upright. That's just a preference to maneuvering about my... Read full review »

Pros none whatsoever
Cons too many to list

This vacuum is awful!!!  After my Dyson died we got the Hoover 12 amp Wind Tunnel Bagless thinking we didn't want to pay another $600 for a vacuum.  Well, you get what you pay for.  At half the price of a Dyson it does less than half the work my Dyson did.  There is absolutely no suction so if you...

Hoover Wind Tunnel Vacuum Worked Great Until My Husband "Fixed It"!

Pros Powerful, Headlight, HEPA Filter, Pivoting Hose
Cons Allergic to dust be ware!  Airborne dust when dumping the dirt cup.
Recommended it? Yes

I got the Hoover Wind Tunnel canister vacuum between 5 and 6 years ago.  It worked great until my husband tried to fix it!  Of course, maybe I should have looked under the sofa before I sucked up a baby sock....but don't tell him I said that!

Now we use the Hoover Wind Tunnel Vacuum as a... Read full review »


Defective Design - RUDE customer svc

Pros None
Cons Defective product, rude customer service, product design is flawed.
Recommended it? No

I purchased a Hoover Wind tunnel because of the good reviews and it worked great for 4 months.  After that, the belt started to fly off so I took it in for a replacement.  The same problem kept occurring after the repair and Hoover has one of the rudest customer service departments I have ever...

Buyer beware

1 Helpfuls 2 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Great suction; love the HEPA filtration; bagless and easy to empty
Cons Poor durability; expensive to replace parts
Recommended it? No

The hose is extremely expensive-almost half the price of the entire vacuum and the durability of the hose is poor as I have only had this for barely three years and the hose is almost completely broken off from the plastic that inserts into the vacuum itself. I'm tempted to buy a brand new vacuum... Read full review »

Let me first say that I have had this vac for 17 months.  It really has been a great vac till now.  Works great on bare floors the best around and I have tried them all.  stores in a relatively small area and really picks up a lot of dirt.  that having been said after only 17 months of use the ...

Pros Quiet, versatile, collapsible, HEPA. Powerful as an Airbus.

Recommended it? Yes

Remember “The Potent Green Hornet?” Well last week I finally sent her on a permanent vacation to El Landfill Grande after accidentally cracking her wheels off. That…and she was a piece of rubbish. The replacement – a shiny Hoover Bagless Windtunnel (model S3765-050) ubervac.

I can hardly contain myself as I write this. I read reviews prior to purchasing this Windtunnel Bagless Canister Cleaner and thought negative reviewers might have been exaggerating or in bad moods. Well I've joined them.  After 1 year of owning this - I'm putting it on the curb. The tremendous... Read full review »

Pros Nice concept and great suction, at first.
Cons Poor plastic parts that break, needs to be emptied too often. Engine fails.
Recommended it? No

Bought first one, LOVED IT, ordered two more for a rather large home with three floors.  Two months into it the plastic is so brittle the wands all start breaking at the connections so they wont stay connected.  Hoover sends me parts...SIX MONTHS LATER BECAUSE THEY ARE BACKORDERED.  Two years later...

I bought my Hoover S3765-40 several months ago.  I have used it a couple of times a week so I think I have a fair view of it's good/bad points.

It is powerful.  I had cleaned my carpet shortly before purchasing this vacuum and was amazed to see how much dirt it got.

Pros Great for a few months; powerful suction.
Cons Cleaning the filter and emptying the receptacle is gross and messy!
Recommended it? No

I bought this vacuum because my mother has the same one. Unfortunately, I have more carpeting in my home than hers and I have a fluffy cat to clean up after. The vac worked great for a few months and then it died. Had it repaired a number of times and still the problem was never fixed and the... Read full review »

Pros No bag, easy to clean, price
Cons Piece of junk
Recommended it? No

I read the reviews here and went out and bought this vacuum. It was easy to put together and seemed like it was going to be a great vacuum. It was easy to dump out the dirt collection container and easy to wipe off the filter. The wand was easy to pull out and use for the close up to wall cleaning... Read full review »

Pros I liked the extending wand, floor and carpet features and size
Cons Really messy to empty the canister. Fails after a short time.
Recommended it? No

Liked it at first, the vacuum was very powerful and the turning brush in the head really cleaned well but after about 3 months the brush stopped turning for the carpet feature. We can hardly use it now and have to work to get it to vacuum up hardly anything. We have mostly hardwood floors so the... Read full review »

Pros Great suction, small size
Cons Small dirt cup, short hose.
Recommended it? Yes

So far, so good. Had to replace my older Hoover and was reluctant to buy this model based on some poor reviews, but decided to buy it anyway. So far so good, but I do agree that the dirt cup is far too small as well as the hose being a little too short. However, the suction is GREAT! I think this... Read full review »

I've loved almost everything about this vacuum. The suction is as good or better than even the most expensive vacuums I've tried. The tools are also very easy to use. It comes with a crevice tool, dusting brush, furniture nozzle, powered hand tool (which my daughter loves to use to clean the... Read full review »

Pros Length of the cord, the suction is amazing, and the bagless feature is great.
Cons Dirt cup is small

Being the research freak that I am, I found this machine to have the best features and reviews. I ordered the Hoover Windtunnel S3765 canister on Amazon.com for $240.00 (again, best price after researching)...then I waited for my order to arrive. I received notification that it was on backorder... Read full review »

Pros Very good suction and great for getting underneath low objects
Cons Poorly designed, small dust collector, hard to clean the filer.
Recommended it? No

I would not recommend this vacuum to anyone who is does not have a lot of muscles. While the vacuum does have a lot of suction and is great for getting under beds and other low places, it does a terrible job on carpeting. The wheels on the head unit are so small that when you put the vacuum on a... Read full review »

Ugg, I am just not impressed with this machine. I bought it on the recommendation of a friend. We needed a new machine as we stored our old one in our garage & ran over it a few times). Anyhow, she said she used this unit and found that it was the best vacuum she has used. I could not disagree... Read full review »
