Highlights

Efficient Filtration System

Utilizing both washable filters and HEPA filtering, this vac truly has an excellent filtration system. The rinse-able filter is situated at the top part of the dirt cup, strategically located to be reached easily. The HEPA filter on the other hand, requires replacement every 2 years. It only needs to be tapped clean and not washed like the rinse-able filter.

Great dust capacity

Hoover is famous for their dirt cups having large capacities; most of the models do. This Hoover in particular has a capacity of approximately 2.5 liters (or 0.65 gallons), totally large enough to collect big volumes of dirt. Depending on the level of dirt, this dirt cup could fill all the dirt of a mere 400 square meter surface.

Convenience doesn’t end just yet; easily dispose the cup by a single press of the release lever situated right at the cup. Just hover the cup over the trash bin and release the bottom, thus disposing the dirt away.

Great Usability

Thanks to the congruence of several systems, this vacuum cleaner has great overall functionality and usability that lets you accomplish more. With the stretch hose, you can move around the device freely without the hassle of monitoring. Also, easy maneuverability is brought by the D-shaped handle.

You can enhance the comfort of using the vac by changing the working angle through the foot activated pedal release. A total of five predefined values allow you to adjust the brush roll’s height to accommodate different surfaces from rugs and carpets to floors.

Comes with special features

Brush view window contributes to the good user experience by letting you see hair residues or clogs from your brushroll, alerting you to get rid of them before they become a nuisance.

No scuff bumper is a simple yet very important special feature as it protects your furniture from getting damaged (e.g. scratches, marks, etc.) due to high-speed vacuuming.

  • Consistent suction brought by the WindTunnel Technology
  • 5-position height adjustment
  • Lightweight; only 16.5 lbs

Pros

  • Can reach into nooks & crannies quite well and can turn on a dime

Cons

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 heavy for some

While it’s advertised as lightweight, and it really is (at least in its category), some people may still find it a little hard to lift as it’s a little heavy (again, only for some). Well this con depends on your definition of “heavy” as some lightweight products are already heavy for some, while some heavy products are still lightweight for some. Nevertheless,this vac is considered lightweight by its manufacturer.

Stuck pet hair

A lot of consumers complain about stuck pet hair remaining inside the canister even in an attempt to empty the said bin. This scenario requires manual pulling of hairs using two of your fingers to reach all the stuck hair and to finally remove them away from the canister.

Thinking deeper comes with a realization; this is only a minor con, even if you think it’s gross to reach out for pet hair in the canister with your bare hands. Since it’s a bagless vacuum, and doesn’t rely on bags to store dirt, it’s inevitable for pet hair to come in contact with the material and get stuck in the process, like most hair would do when contacting with other materials such as combs, etc.

The fact alone that the vacuum managed to pull out a lot of hair from your carpets is something to be grateful for considering another fact that all you have to do is to dispose them, even if it entails using your fingers to completely get rid of them from your canister.

Retractable cord placement

I think a lot of users would agree when I say the retractable cord was supposed to be placed in a higher place within the vac so we don’t have to keep on bending to reach under the unit just to gain access to it. 

Short cord

Depending on your own preferences, some users say the cord is still short, well, for them. If your floor dimension is indeed lengthy, then you may join the club of users complaining the cord is short, but if your room is just big enough for the cord to reach the other side, then you won’t have any problems with the cord at all.

Brush roll can’t be turned off

Now this is something that really disappoints consumers; the brush roll has no on/off button, thus it perpetually rolls even on bare floors opening the possibility of scattered debris.

Suction power too powerful

Now, is there something as too powerful suction? This Hoover might answer it. The suction force pulls the hose, thus you have to resist the said force to operate properly, a user claimed.

Conclusion

Despite all cons which are actually minor and don’t pose much of a big deal, the Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Rewind Plus is a highly recommended vacuum for average consumers looking for the best buy in their below-the-middle-range budget. With a price of under $100, you get yourself a unit that performs at par with high-end vacuums costing around $400 or more. The Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Rewind Plus combines performance, convenience, and efficiency in one!
