The Hoover Elite Cyclonic is a canister vacuum, which is actually quite stylish. Currently it’s priced around $200, so it’s not super cheap. In my review of the Hoover Elite Cyclonic, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s a good buy. As I just mentioned, I think they did a wonderful job on the exterior – it looks very stylish and the colors are great. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this unit: motorized brush roll, headlight, retractable power cord, stretch hose, telescoping wand with multiple attachment tools, 12 amp motor, 25 ft power cord, HEPA filter, fingertip controls, and an easy-empty dirt container. What I really like about this vacuum is that it has a fairly long power cord, as well as a decent stretch hose. This gives a lot of breathing room, instead of having to re-plug the cord in every 20 ft.
OK, onto the negative aspects of the Hoover Elite Cyclonic vacuum. Unfortunately, there are a good number of owners of this model out there who’ve had problems with it breaking down. The break down issues range from the cyclonic action no longer works properly, to the stretch hose clogging up. If these incidents were more random, I wouldn’t have a problem. However, there are many owners of this model that have had these types of issues. Also, when it does break down, customer support hasn’t been top-notch. Maybe the manufacturer is working to fix the problems on the Hoover Elite Cyclonic vacuum cleaner – however, I can’t give this model a very good recommendation as is. Overall, I’m giving it a 3.2 / 5 star rating.
