    Wow. Hoover is on their A-game with the BH50140. I usually consider Hoover vacuums to be workhorse models, but nothing special. In this case they compete favorably with Dyson cordless vacuums costing twice as much! We have a DC59 model and like it, but in some ways this Hoover is superior. Granted they have different form factors, but both being cordless vacuums, the comparison can be made.

    The Hoover and Dyson models both have excellent suction and work well on multiple surfaces. The Hoover has a neat feature where you can either just use just the suction or both the suction and the spinning cleaning brushes. Both hold a charge for nearly the same amount of time, though the Hoover lasts a bit longer. Factor in that a second easily switchable extra battery pack is included with the Hoover, and you can be up and running for a lot longer with the BH50140. It also re-charges more quickly. The BH50140 is larger and isn’t quite as versatile as the svelte Dyson, but it does come with cleaning brush attachments and the pivoting head is far better than those on any other Hoover model I’ve used before now. It sports a larger waste container than the DC59 as well, so it can be run for a longer time before needing to empty it. Said canister could be bigger, but I suspect the size contributes to the effectiveness of the vacuum’s suction. I like the “headlight” at the base of the unit as well for seeing more clearly in darker, hard to reach places. Let me take moment to note that the Hoover will shut down if it rolls over a cord or gets jammed up with some object or fabric. This is a great “self-preservation” feature the Dyson does not have.

    I think Hoover is right on-track with this cordless series. It does the job of a regular vacuum while minimizing the inconvenience of using rechargeable batteries. Get used to using this beauty, and it will be hard to be tied down to a “corded” standard vacuum ever again.

    Close Your Eyes—-Think About No Cord On Your Vacuum!, March 26, 2014

    First about the vacuum. It comes packaged so that as you unpack the batteries and accessories an explanation of what to do and the sequence is printed right there!—and assembly is not cumbersome, but rather simple and straight forward. Took just a couple of minutes for us. It comes with what I would think are the most useful attachments and then more. A two in one dusting and crevice tool (two separate tools that fit together for storage), a pivoting dusting tool, the head pivots so you could actually dust the top of a ceiling fan, an extra roller for dusting hard floors, it is soft and works great on hardwood floors, you also get an extra washable filter. There is storage for a tool on the side, I keep the pivoting dusting tool there. The batteries come pre-charged, plenty to get up and running. I did the whole house and still had charge left, with an indicator light showing the remaining charge. Two switches, one for power on and off and the other for brush on and off. The brush will stop as soon as the handle is in the upright position for like using the attachments. The pivoting head makes navigating very easy. The head is low profile. I can get further under the bed and dressers than any other machine I’ve used, it’s also a bit narrower—–can get between nightstand and wall. Light weight, I think it’s about ten lbs.. easy to pack around by the handle. The headlight (led) is very bright and quite a help in darker rooms; The dirt canister is a one button push to empty. The extension wand comes out of the handle—-always there! The soft-grip handle is comfortable and works well with the pivoting head. Batteries are 20 v Li-ion the perfect match for this use—–and will hold their charge for our entire house (1700 sq. ft.) with plenty of power left.

    Hoover did a great job, top to bottom and deserve five stars for innovation, packaging and producing a quality product! But, none of that matters if it didn’t do a great job on the floors. I can tell you it does, right now my wife is taking a few laps around the house, claiming to get what I missed, really!!!

    The best of all features–No Cord!—–I just hate that bit of dragging a cord behind, not running over it, trying to find just the right plug so you can get to the greatest area with out looking for the next plug! That is the one thing that pushes this way over the top. It’s a regular vacuum, not a flimsy thing designed for dust bunnies, and small accidents. It holds plenty of dirt in the canister……Pushing a regular vacuum around the house with no cord—that’s for me!

    Just for fun I compared this to the Dyson DC44

    Dyson DC44 ———– Hoover Cordless

    This review is from: Hoover Air Cordless Series 3.0 Bagless Upright Vacuum, BH50140 (Misc.)
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

    A couple of years ago, I purchased a Hoover Vacuum and it was awesome. I then became slightly dismayed by the brand when I saw and had an opportunity to experience some of the vacuum options that were being released…until this product. The Hoover Air Cordless is not perfect, but it certainly is a great concept and would work well for many households as a supplemental vacuum or the primary vacuum in an average-sized apartment.

    What it is really cool:

    No cord (the obvious perk): First, I want you to just think about the concept of a cordless vacuum. One of the biggest pains of a traditional vacuum is unraveling the cord and then tidying the cord at the end of a cleaning job. While sweeping, the cord gets stuck on things or people trip over the cord. There you are, nearing completion of a vacuum job, when you see the dog run across the cord and unplug the vacuum. You have to go back down the hall or up the steps to replug the vacuum and then return to your task that should have been done three minutes before. So, here you have this vacuum that is without a cord and it is awesome.

    It’s light!: This vacuum doesn’t have a million bells and whistles and cleaning tools hanging off the edge. It is easy to carry up and down the stairs and flip over if something gets caught in the cleaning head.

    Small cleaning head: This can go in the pro and con category. Small cleaning heads permit the user to easily maneuver around objects. The small heads are great for cleaning steps as well. (The obvious negative is that when there are smaller passes, it takes longer to cover a surface)

    Two batteries: Hoover thought about this and realized that people who are cleaning don’t want to leave a pile of crumbs on the floor or a pile of cat hair on the rug when the battery dies and the President or some other VIP is coming over in five minutes for apple pie. There needs to be a back-up when the battery dies so the cleaning job can be finished. The batteries have a fairly long life of 45-50 minutes and once the battery dies, it dies. The vacuum just stops and you immediately and clearly know it is time to use the second battery that is easily popped in.

    Canister is easy to pop out: I don’t love canisters because I think they can be messy, but this is one of the neater canisters I have used when it comes to emptying the garbage that is in it. You press a button and the bottom of the canister opens. As long as you have the end of the canister sufficiently in the garbage can, little dust flies about. I don’t have to do much banging to get stuck particles out of the canister.

    Small size: This vacuum has a fairly small footprint and can fit easily into small closets. I keep it in a mudroom closet and pull it out to vacuum the carpet in that high-traffic mudroom, as it has to be swept at least twice a day.

    Picks up pretty well: I was very happy with how this picked up cat litter, pebbles, dust, and hair. I didn’t think it would produce enough power to pick up small objects but it has impressed me.

    The not so good (and where you can see this product is not great for all home):

    This vacuum is really intended for smaller areas: If you have pets or a home that is over 1400 square feet (my arbitrary number and not the opinion of the manufacturer), you really need to think about how you would strategically use this vacuum. Our house is well over 1400 square feet and I usually have to dump the canister three times over the course of a regular sweeping endeavor. This is largely due to the amount of pet hair that is collected by the vacuum. If your home is all carpet, and over the 1400 square feet mark, I think that emptying of this canister might drive you insane. Do I think you should still consider it? YES! However, think about where it could best be deployed and as a supplemental vacuum. It would be great to store it in a closet that is close to a high traffic area that has to be vacuumed more frequently than other portions of a house. Do you have cats? It is great for sweeping up wayward cat litter quickly. I would not consider this to be the best choice for a primary vacuum if your house is medium or large in size or you have pets/children/other messy individuals. I think this vacuum would be awesome for a small apartment.

    Neat freaks will need supplemental tools: If corner dust drives you crazy, you are going to need to invest in another device for detailing purposes.

    Small cleaning head: While this aspect can be a pro in terms of maneuvering around furniture, it can lead to increased cleaning time because the cleaning passes are not very wide.

    All in all, I love the concept of a cordless vacuum. I think this particular vacuum would work great as a supplemental vacuum for many households. I think Hoover is on the right track here and I am hopeful the next…
