Pros and Highlights
Fabulous filtration system
Hoover is proud of their marvelous HEPA filtration technology that removes fine dust and pollen, even the most microscopic ones down to almost zero microns.
High-quality HEPA filter guarantees a cleaner home not just on its surfaces but also in its atmosphere as it blocks out most dust, pollen, and allergens from coming out into the air and into your nostrils. This prevents allergic reactions; good news to people who are allergy-sensitive, thus you and your family can now live in a much cleaner and healthier home.
The filter is also rinse-able so you can reuse it again and again for life – no added cost for purchasing new filters. Since it’s rinse-able, all you have to do is to rinse it with running water after using, install again in place, and voila, the vac is now ready for another go.
This vac comes with included accessories that greatly assists you in accomplishing more tasks in more places. The crevice tool for instance, helps you clean those nooks& crannies that you could not ever reach without the help of the said accessory.
5 Position Carpet Height adjustment
The idea alone that a vac could adjust for you to accommodate your own specific needs is already an awesome picture to imagine in mind. How much more if the unit could adjust into 5 different positions just to suit you? For a more efficient and easier floor clean-up, just manually adjust the selector and point to the type of floor you need to clean and the vac will do the rest.
System Check Indicator
This is something that a lot of vacuums doesn’t have – the Hoover boasts a system check indicator that lets you know whether or not you already need to clean or check the filter. In other vacuums, you still have to physically check the filter and determine, all by yourself, whether it’s time to clean it or not. The thing is, not everybody have the fundamental knowledge to determine the current status of their filter.
With the system check indicator, the machine itself displays the filter status, thus you’re able to know at the right time, consequently preserving the life of the filter.
Upholstery / Dusting Brush
This Hoover is not just good in cleaning carpets but is also great in cleaning your furniture covered with upholstery. The upholstery / dusting brush assists you in turning your furniture back to their tip-top shape.
Now this is something that I really appreciate about; recommended to all people who don’t want to get their hands dirty. Otherwise, why would one purchase a vacuum at the first place? The bottom-release cup is a convenient way to dispose the collected dirt in the bin; just hover the cup over the trash can and a single press of a button releases the bottom, accordingly releases all dirt inside in a one, swift move.

Here are some downsides of this model that most users would agree to; however, take note that user experience may vary depending on some factors which means that you may or may not encounter one or more of these listed cons.
A little noise
Inevitably, there are a lot of people susceptible to noise pollution. Some are even sensitive enough to hear a little crack. This Hoover puts disappointment to some users because of the noise it produces while in operation. And it’s not just associated with a single noise but rather a series of nuisance.
When using it for the first time, there’s a tendency to hear a strange chirping sound that could disturb you for about 5 minutes. The particular noise, however, ceased to exist after the said initial use. Note: It may literally be just the wheels making a squeaky sound while doing its first movements. But it doesn’t end there; when you capture a debris larger than dust like a piece of gravel for instance, you will hear it whirl around and around, making a noise.
Note – this con is just a minor issue and should NOT keep you from purchasing the unit.
Belt is easily broken
The belt broke within the first month of usage, a user claimed. Hoover sent a new belt, temporarily putting a solution to the problem because the belt broke again just after a few weeks of usage. This feedback came with a one star rating; so underrated that it doesn’t put much validity to the alleged awful experience due to the undervalued feedback. Should this be true or not, at least you’ve been warned; however, I’ve read a lot more positive reviews that basically outweighs all the negative ones.
The Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Bagless Upright is a recommended vacuum for households with a lot of carpeted floors. Patented WindTunnel technology, no suction-loss feature, rinse-able filter, powerful Hand Tool, on-board tools, and HEPA filtration technology all make up to the reasons why this vacuum is a must-have for people with a mid-range budget.
