  1. You can easily transition your cleaning with ease from one type of floor to another with the vacuum’s unique height adjustment. The tools also make cleaning easier and done in almost half the time.
  2. The HEPA filter is rinsable which means you will never have to buy expensive HEPA filters time and again. And just the thought that this vacuum is bagless makes it a real value for your money; you will never have to purchase expensive vacuum bags anymore!
  3. The Hoover S3865 Platinum Cyclonic also has the steadiest and consistent suction that you can ever find in a vacuum. The WindTunnel technology also makes it possible for room air to be clean even when you have dusted and remove dirt and dust all over. This is ideal for homes with kids with allergies and asthma.
  4. Cleaning is faster and will never be a chore even when you are finished with the cord wind-up function you will never break your back putting the cord back into place.
  5. The controls are all in your hands to minimize stopping and reaching for them in the vacuum unit.


  1. The process of emptying the Hoover S3865 Platinum Cyclonic is still a huge chore. You will eventually be covered in dirt and grime if you are not careful. Be sure to empty the dirt canister out of the house to prevent dust and dirt from flying back.
  2. The vacuum is heavier than most upright vacuums but you can otherwise drag it to where you want to clean with its efficient vacuum wheels.


Overall, this vacuum is a practical way to clean. No HEPA filters or vacuum bags to purchase means you will never have to pay for more. The suction power is strong and consistent which is what most homeowners are looking for in an upright vacuum.

  1. I would like to find a lightweight, very compact (won’t take much space when storing) and economic vacuum that helps me clean dust and window screens. Which one that may be? I don’t have carpets but I would like to clean my sofa and bed also with that vacuum.
