My review and perspective on model: LINX Cordless Stick Vac vacuum cleanerThis is the Hoover LINX Cordless Stick Vacuum Review please check the reviews page for a comparison of other vacuum cleaners.
Stick vacuum's in general don't make any sense to me. There are legitimate uses for them, say in an RV, but for a home they are worthless, and I will never lose that sentiment. For home use I always suggest the Oreck XL 2000 instead, especially with how expensive this Hoover is. The Hoover LINX is truly the top of the line, best you can get in stick vacuum cleaners. If you absolutely need a stick vacuum I still often refer people to the Electrolux ErgoRapido, or Black & Decker Pivoting Floor Vacuum Cleaner. Why would I refer those vacuum's if the Hoover LINX is the top of the line? Well it comes down to cost, the Hoover is insanely expensive for what it is, you can get a complete upright vacuum cleaning system for this price. The Electrolux or Black & Decker get the job done just the same for HALF the cost. With that said there are some distinct advantages of the Hoover LINX that should be illustrated. First off is the battery, it is a removable battery, so you can keep a few on hand charged up and get a longer running time (though this still baffles me why is a cord such a problem? Even in most RV's you can plug in your vacuum so an Oreck still makes more sense since at $70 each for the batteries to have a couple on hand you're tossing out a lot of money for less than an hour of running time). The suction and cleaning power of this Hoover LINX is distinctly above the cut for other stick vacuums. And the build quality is much better. When most stick vacuums batteries die the whole unit is dead, so that is one more reason to go with the Hoover Linx over other stick vacuums. I still have some troubles actually recommending this as a great product with the extremely high price that is comparable to an Oreck that will do the job much better. You also get better dust filtration with an Oreck.

Amazon.com Product Description
Equipped with Hoover's patented WindTunnel technology, this cordless and bagless stick vacuum cleaner uses the power of rotating brushes and three suction tunnels to lift and trap dirt. The unit's motorized power brush picks up even deep-down dirt in the thickest plush carpeting, while the one-touch switch on the handle turns off the brushroll, making it easy to transition from carpets to hard-floor surfaces. Move effortlessly throughout the house thanks to the cleaner's cordless design--no more having to stop to re-plug the power cord when moving from room to room. The machine runs on an interchangeable 18-volt Lithium Ion battery, which ensures maximum "fade-free" power right up until the battery is completely drained. Its battery-fuel gauge clearly indicates the amount of battery life remaining, and the included Energy Star battery charger quickly and efficiently powers it back up to a full charge.
Other details include an 11-inch-wide nozzle with a wide-mouth opening, automatic height adjustment, edge cleaning bristles for closer access along baseboards and corners, soft non-marring rear wheels, and a low-profile base and reclining handle for access under furniture, as well as a comfort-grip handle and the ability to stand upright on its own without needing to lean against a wall for convenience and storage. Lightweight at just over 7-1/4 pounds, this cordless stick vac measures approximately 11 by 8 by 42 inches and carries a six-year limited warranty on the vacuum and a two-year limited warranty on the battery and charger. To maximize the life of your battery, do not store it on your charger unless the charging unit is unplugged.

The included battery charger features a blue LED indicator strip so you can monitor the charging process, which is usually fully complete in less than four hours.

The LINX Cordless Stick Vac is a Residential vacuum designed for use in the Residential environment. I have reviewed it accordingly, the price point of the LINX Cordless Stick Vac is set for the Residential industry which should be taken into consideration when purchasing or thinking about purchasing this vacuum. Commercial vacuum cleaners may be built to last longer and endure more abuse, but are more expensive and may be lacking some of the luxuries (such as light weight, or low noise) that you are accustomed to. On the contrary Residential vacuums are made at lower price points, lower quality, but are often lighter and quieter to use.
