The Good Part About Hoover Linx Cordless Vacuum
Here are what we really love about the Hoover Linx Cordless Vacuum
The Hoover Linx cordless vacuum weighs only about 7.3 pounds. Its light weight and portable structure allow us to drive the vacuum easily around the house when doing our cleaning tasks.
As any cordless vacuums, the Hoover Linx is powered by Lithium-Ion battery system. It allows roughly 15-20 minutes of operating suction. What we really love is the ability to switch to an extra battery if your current one runs out of juice in the middle of your cleaning tasks. Do bear in mind though, the extra batteries does not come with it (at the time of this review) but is available for purchase separately.
The Hoover Linx cordless vacuum also sports a battery power gauge which displays the remaining battery life so you could know when to change and recharge the batteries.
The Power Control buttons are very conveniently positioned at the handle. It is very easy to access and control during the cleaning tasks.
The Hoover Linx vacuum’s cleaner mouth is wide enough to cover the cleaning surfaces. This does really help to cut down cleaning time and capture more surface dust.
The Bad Part About Hoover Linx Cordless Vacuum
The part we didn’t like about the Hoover Linx Vacuum.
While its light weight and portable structure do allow us to maneuver easily around the house, the Hoover Linx cordless vacuum is not really well designed for stairs cleaning job. It was slightly hard for stairs cleaning.
The Powered Brush-roll with Hoover’s patented WindTunnel Technology was intended to make cleaning on carpeted surface much efficiently but it does not work as well as it claims to be. Hairs are stuck on the carpet after a few rounds of back and forth suction.
The roller wheels beneath its cleaner head tends to get clogged easily with hair and furs. On top of that, it might be due to the small dirt collection cup, sometimes furs and hairs may get clogged up from the tube to the dirt cup. It does take some efforts to unclog them.
The Hoover Linx cordless does not clean up so well at the edges. It would be even harder if we’re talking about cleaning the edges on the stairs.
Our Verdict on Hoover Linx Cordless Vacuum
Do we recommend you to buy the Hoover Linx Cordless vacuum?
Yes and No.
We would recommend this cordless vacuum as an add-on if you already have a main vacuum cleaner at home and wanted to use this Hoover Linx as a supplement cordless vacuum cleaner for small touch up cleaning tasks.
For its low price and the ability to interchange extra batteries, the Hoover Linx cordless vacuum does pack some advantages as a supplementary cordless vacuum for your quick cleaning needs.
Although the Hoover Linx cordless vacuum does provide a decent performance and has the ability to have interchangeable batteries, it is not good enough as your single household cleaning vacuum.
It does clean well on hard floor surfaces, but that would mean a half done cleaning job at certain parts like the edges and stairs.
