    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...

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 !!

    I have had my Platinum LiNX Cordless stick vacuum since November 2008. Its now the end of 2014, and its still going strong! I did just order a new belt and brush roll end caps sine they are normal wear items. I love the convenience of this powerful little vac and I hope it continues to clean for years to come.

    Stopped Sucking

    By jaredlobster

    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,

    By BudandLiz

    from Newtown, PA, United States

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

    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.

    from New Bern, NC

    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.

    I am amazed to read some of the negative reviews for a vacuum that I absolutely love.  I am 76 years old and have owned almost every kind of vacuum you can name, but this tops them all in quality and overall performance.  Of course it's light weight is a huge plus for me too.  I received it from my daughter who also has one and loves it.  I could go on and on.  I have recommended it many times.  Thank you.

    I absolutely love the LiNX cordless stick vac. With 4 Great Danes and 2 cats, I use it everyday. It picks up dog hair from the carpet easily and transitions to the hardwood and tile floors with a click of the button. I am always amazed at all the dirt collected. It is by far the best of any stick vacs I've tried and I've tried many. Also love the ease of recharging the battery. Love it. Love it.

    I've had this little thing for over 3 years now. It is fantastic. There is absolutely nothing to complain about. Notice I've had it over 3 years. Not only is it lightweight with good suction and enough battery duration to get the job done, it has longevity! I am just now ordering a new battery and I have used it everyday since I got it. You can feel secure when you order this that you will not be sorry!
