What experts liked
Since it also costs significantly less than comparable performers, its value is tough to ignore.
- CNET
Because the Hoover Linx scored well on carpet-cleaning abilities, its ideal user would have more rugs than hardwood or tile.
- Nerd Wallet

Its seat has a backrest, and it has a space-saving folding design
- Top Ten Reviews
Just like a powerful common upright, only it’s cordless. I love it! …15 mins is enough for me to clean 3 rooms.

It has a decent battery life.

It is ultra Light at just over 7 pounds.
- Vacuum Wizard
This cordless stick vacuum from Hoover was impressive at carpet-surface and bare floor cleaning and even better at picking up pet hair and getting into edges. The 18-volt lithium-ion battery ran for 18 minutes in our tests and took 3 hours to recharge
- Consumer Reports
Battery life is extremely good.
- BestReviews
It has a decent battery life.
- New York Times Wirecutter
The Hoover received excellent performance scores on the bare floor test and very good scores on our test for picking up pet hair from carpet.

What experts didn't like
This model doesn't come with brush attachments or any other special features -- it's just a stick vacuum.
- CNET
Didn’t work on pet hair
- Nerd Wallet
January 27, 2016 | Full review
It doesn’t have preprogrammed workouts, and its weight limit is only 225 pounds.
- Top Ten Reviews
The battery last too little for me to vacuum all the house.

It is harder to use.
- Tech Gear Lab
August 16, 2017 | Full review
Emptying the dirt cup is messy.
- Vacuum Wizard
On bare floors the powerful brush can scatter some debris, there are no tools and it cannot convert to a hand vac.
- Consumer Reports
Skimpy on accessories.
- BestReviews
It doesn’t convert into a handheld. We just think a two-in-one design is so useful and necessary for couch and other above-floor cleanups.
- New York Times Wirecutter
Its bottom-release dust cup is easy to remove for emptying, but some of our consumer testers found it slightly difficult to put back.
