This little jewel is one of those rare finds that you can enjoy each time you use it, even after years. I HATE dragging around cords as my cats try to make a dancing game out of it, and most vacuums--even the ones marketed as light--seem like an anchor in comparison to the Linx. The feather weight is unbelieable, it's almost like there isn't a motor in it. I'm in a place with hardwoods, tile bathrooms and short and long pile rugs so this vacuum gets a workout on all surfaces. I have been totally pleased with the performance vs. price and have to say, from an enginnering standpoint, this model has just about nailed it as well as I can imagine a cordless vac can do. I usually am able to just about finish up with one charge but it would be nice if the battery lasted a bit longer. But since I am using it on longer pile rugs, I know it must use a higher level of charge on that surface. I love this model so much I am just about **that far** from ditching my 'primary' vac because I hardly ever use it. I will probably buy a second Linx and just rotate use. I've had zero reliabilty problems with it and the cannister empty process is just about the cleanest, least fussy way to do it that I've ever seen. Just love this vac. I hope you guys keep it in your lineup forever!

I have a very big house and I clean my husband's office with my Linx. I have now had 3 of them. Our home is older and we have few places to plug things in so this is perfect for not having to find a place to plug it in. The suction good but not the greatest but it's great for a quick cleaning. The problem is in the design. The neck of the vaccuum cuts the wires controlling the belt and running the beater bar. It's done this in all 3 of my units. The first one I eventually threw away because I got tired of taking it apart and trying to splice it back together. I am to that point now with the other 2, I would guess I have taken them apart 10 times in the last 3 months and one of them is a year old and the other is 6 months old. I will not purchase another one even though if the design were fixed I would LOVE to own another one. It's almost perfect but then a flop...

Broken Handle!

By MrsLindaO

from North Haven, CT, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

Thought I loved this product until the handle snapped at the seam. I can no longer use it! I wasn't rough on it or anything and mid-vaccuum it snapped! Called in to customer service only to be told I'd have to pay $45 for a new piece. Doesn't seem right.

Great stick vac

By bk1j

from KY, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

This is an awesome stick vac! I use this little machine almost daily. It does a fantastic job of picking up lint and small particles off of my area rug. It is also great on my hardwood floors. No need for my broom and dustpan anymore. It does a great job keeping my floors clean between weekly vacuuming. So quick and easy to use. Charges fast and lasts at least 25 minutes per charge. LOVE it!!

Hoover does it again with a winner!

By miaclockman

from Florida

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I have always bought Hoover vacuums because of their quality products. We have had a self-propelled Wind Tunnel upright for years and it is an amazing product. It doesn't lose suction like most bagless models. We also wanted battery operated stick vacuums and unfortunately a couple of years ago, found Electrolux at our local BJs. After a year, they wouldn't hold a charge anymore and the batteries weren't replaceable. So I did some research and found the Linx. I ordered two (one for each floor of our home). I was NOT disappointed. I love the fact that they have a separate rechargeable battery and you can buy extra batteries so that you never have to stop in the middle of cleaning. The vacuums have unbelievable suction despite their small size! As a test, I ran the Linx in the living and dining rooms. It picked up a considerable amount of pet hair and dirt normally dragged in by our puppy. The dust cup was full. Then, I took out the Wind Tunnel upright which has a dirt-finder light that shows red if there is still debris in the carpet and green if everything is clean. Amazingly, there were only two small areas where the red light came on! I was truly impressed. The Linx is lightweight, easy to use, has two settings (one for suction only and a second switch position to turn on the beater bar). There is also a battery charge indicator so you will always know how much of a charge is left. I can't comment on the length of time the battery provides on one charge because I always remove it and put it on the convenient charger. I CAN say that I am able to vacuum for about 1/2 hour and don't even put a dent in the charge! The dust cup is very easy to empty. Simply press one button to remove it from the vacuum, and another one to open it over a trash can. No fuss, no touching of anything. I highly recommend this vacuum to anyone looking for a quality stick vacuum. It has the power to deliver, is sturdy and well designed. If I had to give ANY negative, I wish that the head wasn't quite as wide because it can't get between the cabinet and toilet in the bathroom - but I understand that Hoover made it that wide to make cleaning go faster in large areas. Not a big deal - it manages to go around and under all of the furniture with ease. Thank you, Hoover..... you've done it again!

Top Vacuum Cleaner

By martinsoto

from Wisconsin, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

The line Cordless stick vacuum is definitely one of the top vacuums in the market. You are getting an amazing value for your money. The Noozle for it is large so this greatly reduces your vacuuming time. Removing the dirt cup is also pretty easy. This website also gives you a pretty good review on it. http://welovevacuums.com/hoover-linx-cordless-stick-vacuum-cleaner-review/

My husband purchased this for me when I injured my elbow. It is very lightweight and easy to use. It has great suction, easy to store and my 5 year old can work it as well. The battery has a great life and charges rather quickly.

on our third unit - the same problem, one of the wheels keeps falling off. The wheel is insert with a simple friction pin. The pin keeps coming out and the wheels falls off. Otherwise this unit would be great.

My son bought me a cordless vacuum 2 years ago and the battery died before the year was up. I research and read a lot of reviews. I decided on the Hoover. After receiving it I knew it was a good little vacuum. I have been very pleased and am about to purchase one for my daughter.

I loved this product and recommended it to numerous people until the beater brush stopped working. My husband fixed it 3 times - and again the beater brush only works when you turn the handle to the right. He wants to throw it away and buy another brand!

Terrific - with one Flaw

By Daily Vacuumer

from Baltimore, MD, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

for the price and weight, this is a terrific vacuum. Enough power to pick up most dirt, the carpet sweeper function is useful, battery life is decent, and ease of use is good. But the engineer who designed the latch that secures the waste bin/filter assembly should be shot....even my 12 year-old commented on how flimsy and tiny the latch is. Given the need to empty the waste compartment frequently,why would Hoover have a cheap, flimsy latch? Just the slightest knock on the vacuum, or bump into furniture, will often dislodge the entire waste cannister.

Will not buy again

By Suhas

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

After about 9 months of use, the powered brush roll has stopped working for me so I cannot vacuum my carpets anymore. I can only do my hardwood floors which also don't seem to be cleaned as well as it used to. I'm most disappointed in the powered brush roll not working anymore. It does sometimes star working when I swivel the vacuum all the way to the right or the left, and you can hear it starting to work again but this only lasts for a couple seconds as I can't vacuum my rug with it angled to the left or right the whole time.

Excellent Follow-Up Service to Previous Problem!

By mlmchicago

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I reported about a month ago that the roller stopped 'rolling' on our just out of warranty rechargeable Lynx stick vacuum. We weren't able to find a satisfactory third-party repair solution so Hoover stepped in and sent a replacement nozzle. Took just seconds to swap out and it works great once again. It's my wife's favorite vacuum and gets used daily on all different surfaces in the house. Thanks, Giselle!

BEST CORDLESS VAC

By Friend

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I bought the Hoover LINK Cordless Stick Vac on 03/05/15. I really like this vac. It is lightweight**very attractive**and has good suction on carpet. I previously had an Electrolux 2 in 1. It worked good on bare floors but was awful on carpet. I like that you can purchase a separate battery for the Hoover (could not with the Electrolux). I like the battery gauge on the Hoover. The Hoover is not noisy. I just like it. I didn't give 5 stars because unit didn't come with any attachments.

Best Yet

By HankB

from Huntington Station, NY

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

My house looks like a vacuum museum! My wife is obsessed with vacuuming, (as long as I do it). We've gone through several Sears Kenmore canister models over our 45 years of marriage. They don't make them like they used to! Plus they are big, heavy and unwieldy. We have had several small dustbusters, they suck (or maybe the problem is, they don't suck) We have a Roomba, that only turns in circles. And when it "worked" you had to stop and clean the brushes every 10 minutes. We've had a couple of, what I call, a "dust buster on a stick" type machines, and, couple of small light-weight stand up vacs. We now have a Hoover Linx Cordless. So far, it works great, seems powerful, the charge lasts a long time and it even looks nice! Time will tell. I hope we can use it for a long time before it has to be added to the Vaccuum Museum in the spare bedroom!

Great cordless vaccum

By eunie

from Edgewater, FL, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I have had mine for a year and love it! I have five cats and I am vaccuming daily. It picks up cat litter and I am always amazed how much cat hair I empty out of the container after each use. I purchased an extra battery so I always have one charged & ready to put in when the one I am using has run out. I have one of Hoover's other cordless stick vaccums that has a removable had vac but it doesn't do near the job that this one does. This one goes in our RV when we are on trips and back into the house when we are home. Just love it.

Great, until roller stopped after 13 months!

By tmchicago

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

Wife loved the vacuum, especially the ability to turn the roller brush on and off, until the roller stopped working after 13 months. It still vacuums, but roller won't spin. Found out this is a very common problem (wiring issue) and the repair costs almost as much as a new unit on sale. Not pleased at all.

Super convenient!

By Kate11

from St Peters, MO, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

Been using now for about 6 months and I love this small, lightweight but powerful and thorough vac. I used it initially as my main, whole house vac. I love it because it lifts matted carpet in high traffic areas, and removes cat hair easily. It's lightweight enough that I can even lift it onto the bed to vac away cat hair from my matelasse spread where the cat sleeps. Switches perfectly from carpet to area rugs to hardwood and tile/linoleum. We live in a two-story so it's easy to carry from floor to floor. The battery charge lasts just long enough to do one whole floor thoroughly at a time. Great for very small areas, and in spaces that must be swept, it picks up the sweepings (with the brushroll turned off) without throwing them. I would recommend this great little vac to anyone...it's actually FUN to use!

Works well enough, but has a design flaw.

By chris42

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

You get what you pay for - there probably is a reason a Dyson costs so much more than this Hoover. It cleans well enough, I like the way the battery can be removed to charge, much like a power tool, but the canister falls out at the slightest provocation. If you're very careful with it and don't bump it into anything or pick it up too quickly you'll probably be ok. I have to say I'm kinda disappointed, I thought it would be better.

Hoover Stick Vacuum

By Revdavis

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

We have entered into our older years now and needed something a little lighter weight to do light vacuuming around our house. My wife is absolutely amazed at this little stick vac, it picks up as well or better than the big one that seems to be like pushing a garden tiller around the house. Easy to use, easy to store, extremely easy to empty and the battery seems to last forever. We used it for sure over a solid hour and the battery still has some juice left in it. I can see anybody not being pleased with the purchase of this model Hoover Stick Vac. HAPPY IN KENTUCKY, "AND STILL PLAYING BASKETBALL"

Not the best engineering

By 44DavidC

from San Francisco, CA, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

Pluses: very handy, kinda fun to use, battery is going just fine after two years. Minuses: poor engineering (you stick the top part of the handle onto the bottom assembly and bolt it into place, but where it attaches breaks easily because it takes a lot of stress). You have to handle it very gingerly, or this part fails. I use duct tape to keep it togetherâ€"rather rickety (see where I'm pointing in the picture). Also, the brush assembly failed, tooâ€"it no longer turns. Tried doing everything in the instructions, no joy. Unfortunately, I'm out of the two year warranty, so I'm out of luck (unless one of the kind Hoover reps who monitor this site take pity on me.

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I bought this vacuum based on outstanding reviews on amazon.com after looking at a Dyson unit ( too expensive). I was pleasantly surprise by this unit after I charged the battery, I was able to clean both levels of my home and had some charge left on the battery. Clever design. I needed a light weight model as I have both knee problems and a back problem.

Best Cordless Vacuum I've owned

By DMATmedicc

from Ohio, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I'll start this with I don't usually write a review, but felt my opinion would be helpful to others. I have owned my vacuum for approx. 8 years and have put very little maintenance/upkeep into it. I have owned other cordless vacuums that have failed me repeatedly. Whether the battery was of poor quality or the overall performance was just not up to standard to me. So, I decided to spend the little bit of extra money to purchase to Hoover Linx. Boy am I glad I did. With a six year warranty (not including the battery) I figured I really couldn't go wrong. Within the first six months my first one died. No reason, just died. I returned it to the place of purchase and they gladly replaced it with a new one. Since that time, (8 years later) I have only had to replace the filter (normal maintenance), the battery (original one lasted 7 years) and the small little red filter that goes into the dirt cup (I broke it by being negligent). I use my vacuum at least once, usually twice daily. It has picked up large bird seed, gravel, dog hair, and food crumbs amongst many other things. I use it on throw rugs, hardwood floors, tile and laminate. The beater bars are always on and I have never had it damage any of my flooring or trim. I have even used it to sweep my leather couch and leather ottoman when my dog decided to sleep on it while I was away for the day. No damage or scratches from the beater bars. I have suggested to several of my friends and family to purchase one for their own home. (Several did, buy my sister decided to spend over twice the amount to buy a competitor brand that is over priced and usually only purchased for "the name".) I have owned a model of the competitor and was less than impressed with its cheaply made parts and lack of performance. It didn't even last me a year and I was out SEVERAL hundred dollars. Hoover stands by it's warranty and has been a good little machine in my opinion. If my vac. was to quit working tomorrow, I would without a doubt purchase another one. For the $250.00 or so that I have spent over the last 8 years (original purchase price $179.00, little red filter $4.00, and replacement battery $70.00 ?) I have really gotten my monies worth out if it. I was spending $60.00 every 6 months buying competitor cordless vacuums! Very happy with Hoover this time, they got this one right.!!

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I didn't think I could ever love a vacuum cleaner but this one is so outstanding. I have a Black Lab that appears to shed constantly all over my hardwood floors. This vacuum easily picks up the dog hair on all surfaces, the hardwood floors, the area rugs (picks up the hair and debris without sucking the rug into the vacuum), even easy to vacuum the dog bed and the futon that he lays on when I'm working in my home office. I have about 1,000 sq ft and never have a problem running out of battery.

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I love the Hoover Linx Cordless. So easy to use. Light-weight. Good dirt pick-up. I am on my second one. The only negative I have to say is the last one I had a little over two years and the roller stopped working. We followed the trouble-shooting directions and it was none of those problems. The warranty had expired. I did like it so I bought another since I had a 30% off coupon at Kohl's.

Battery just stopped charging. Warranty?

By hendrickb11

from Alexandria, VA, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

My mother-in-law graciously purchased this stick vacuum after raving about hers for months. We used it almost daily, and it certainly helped our household duties. I awoke the other weekend to find the battery drained after attempting to charge it overnight. I even asked my mother-in-law to take it to her house to see if her Linx charger would give the battery some juice. For $180, I expect the machine and its battery to last a bit longer. I cannot justify spending $70 on a battery that is not that old. Let's hope that Hoover comes through with its warranty.

Vacuuming with my LYNX is like a walk in the park!

By Sheepdogma

from Ocala, FL, United States

Comments about Hoover Platinum Collection Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum (BH50010):

I've had my LYNX about two years and usually use it several times a week. Compared to a big old corded machine, vacuuming with the LYNX is like a walk in the park! The LYNX does a fine job on hardwoods, tile and rug/carpet with relatively low pile. I use it on our higher pile carpet if I'm in a hurry and company is coming--it cleans up the top of the carpet and makes it look just vacuumed--but it probably doesn't get all the FL sand our two Old English Sheepdogs drag in.
