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...

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

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

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.

Great machine for the cost

By macaroo

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.!!

Lifesaver!

By HappilyRetired

from Oceanside, CA, United States

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.

Love this machine

By Beth3030

from CT, United States

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.

I LOVED this vacuum for the first 1-1/2 years. Then the battery life gradually became shorter & shorter. Now, I can run the vacuum for only 3-4 minutes before the battery dies. A new battery costs half the price of the entire vacuum. No thank you!

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.

LOVE this machine

By Frankster

from Valencia, CA

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

I have a Dyson that does a great job, only most of the time I will pick up this machine as it is much lighter and easy to move about. The low to the floor head lets me get under the dressers, tables, etc. It has great suction on both hard floors and my carpet so I don't worry about leaving dirt around after I am done, and it switches very easy from floor to carpet. The charge lasts long enough for me to get more vacuuming done that I may care to. It recharges from empty to full in two to three hrs. AND it is quiet and very easy to empty. What more could one ask for in a good looking, light, small, cordless ( no cord to find a plug for, or drag around), easy to empty, vacuum with great suction?? ENJOY !!

Stopped Sucking

from Nashville, TN, United States

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

Bought this four months ago, and it no longer sucks properly. Rolling over even small bits of paper yields nothing. I have checked all of the openings for clogs, etc, but there's no hope. After reading other's complaints about Hoover's warranty issues, I haven't even bothered to report this. I consider it a $200 mistake and am making it a point to post my experience as a warning around the web,

Don't puchase it. We are on our third battery. First we purchased a spare, so we could always have one available. Then one stopped charging completely, so we purchased a third. The third just died, too. So we are down to one battery, which doesn't hold a charge for long. We won't be investing in a fouth one! Too bad, because the base product is grea!

I've loved this vacuum since receiving it about a year ago. But today I'm not happy. The charger light comes on for a split second, then goes off, and I can't charge the battery. It does the same thing in different receptacles. And the frustrating part is that I came online to read troubleshooting instructions, and no help for charger problems is included.

beater brush no longer works

By Winni

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

I have had two (2) Linx vacuums and with both of them the beater brush stopped working.  We replaced the first one with a second because I really love everything about this vacuum and thought I had just worn it out. Since reading several of these reviews I realize that this must be a problem with the product .As much as I  want another I will not be buying one as I have already invested over $300 in these two purchases.
