There is a lot to this product and this leads to high buyer expectations so this Hoover Corded Stick Vacuum SH20030 Review aims to see if lives up to them?
What are the good points about this Hoover Hardwood Floor Vacuum?
One of the key selling points with this product is the idea of maneuverability and adaptability and this is certainly seen by many buyers in the way that it moves around the room and furniture with relative ease. The specification talks about swivel steering, which is highlighted in a number of reviews, but users also offer praise for light weight, the smooth movement of the rubberized wheels and the ability to switch from hoovering on hardfloors to carpets with the flick of one single button. Unfortunately, while many reviewers also talk positively about the great suction and clean results on this hardfloor mode, there are some that say the results and power of the suction on carpeting and rugs is not so good. The promise is that it “transitions from hard flooring to area rugs and low pile carpeting easily” but perhaps it could go even further in its attempts to be a multi-purpose model.
What problems have some users experienced with this Hoover Corded Stick Vacuum?
Putting this issue of the suction, power and multi-functionality to one side, there are some other criticisms of the design that prospective buyers should keep in mind before buying. Luckily, most of these are small issues with the design features rather than anything substantial with the performance but there are still enough of them to cause a little concern. Firstly, some have mentioned that this “simple” button for changing the function is actually in a very awkward place. This, and the complaint over the design of the screw in the handle, suggest that attention to detail is lacking with this model slightly. The other issue is that the small size of this portable hoover comes with some drawbacks, notably the the small canister size and the short cord. The latter is manageable but does impact upon the maneuverability slightly.
What is the final verdict of this Hoover Corded Stick Vacuum SH20030?
Perhaps this is one of those specialist vacuums for certain problems and areas of the house than a model to rely upon for all household hoovering tasks because while there are plenty of users that really appreciate the power and performance of the vacuum on hardfloors, many would not replace their trusted favorite with it. Having said this, if you are looking for something to really make an impact on hardwood surfaces with a compact design and relative ease of use, this Hoover Stick Vacuum SH20030 could be a great choice.
