It was not all good news with the Hoover uh30010com Platinum Lightweight Upright Vacuum. Most off the complaints focused around the bonus canister vacuum. People said it is very loud, the bag fills quickly and it can be awkward to carry around. The upright vacuum doesn’t have any on board tools and its not very good for hard flooring surfaces because there is no on/off switch for the brush roller so you have to use the canister vacuum. A couple of people had some issues with the upright vacuum turning on and off by itself and it turned out to need a replacement electrical board which can be difficult to get. The upright vacuum can be difficult to move of long pile carpet as you can’t adjust the brush height making it more suitable for short carpet.

If you are looking for a light weight, easily maneuverable vacuum cleaner for wall to wall short pile carpet this would be a good choice. On the other hand if you have lots of hard surface floors or need to use attachment tools frequently for furniture or drapes the Hoover uh30010com Platinum Vacuum may not be the best choice as you will be using the canister vacuum most of the time.
