Customer Reviews:
  • Better with a bag
    I bought this vacuum for my son who lives 10 hours away. He has turned into a neat freak (yes!!!!) and cleans his apartment regularly. I have a bagless vac at home and hate it when it is time to empty it out. It seems I get as much dust out into the house as I do picking it up. This new Hoover vacuum is air tight. When it is time to change bags, it is simple and efficient (no stray dust particles). He changes the bags regularly and buys the hypoallergenic type. Since he has allergies, this vacuum has worked much better for him than the bagless one I had. How do I know? After I would vacuum my house he would always sneeze. He does not sneeze after he uses his....more info
  • A Powerful Genie
    We've owned Kirby's, Oreck's, others and, for the money, this one wins hands down. It's lightweight, easy to manuveur, and almost drives itself. We have a medium nap carpet and have our unit set on the highest setting. It's great on pet hair (we have a yellow lab) and does a good job along walls and corners. The bag check port is a nice feature. The cord could be six feet longer and the on/off switch should be foot-operated or on the handle rather than the bag housing. The accessories are o.k., but difficult to use on stairs. Overall, for general cleaning, the unit performs magnificently considering a price under $100....more info
  • Clean up
    This vacuum works great. My only complaint is that the front cover that houses the vacuum bag falls off all the time......poorly put together I guess. Anyway, I taped it shut because I don't need to impress anyone and everything is fine now....more info
  • Holds the dog hair!
    I bought these bags as replacement bags and so far so good. They hold in my two dogs hair with no problem, helping to keep the carpet nice and clean. ...more info
  • Good product, price on Amazon is the best
    I've owned my Hoover Windtunnel for about 3 years now. Type Y bags are between difficult and impossible to find replacement for....especially at WalMart. Amazon has, no doubt, the best price. The product is described quite well in the other Customer Reviews.... the bags work great.....they are a bit expensive..... they do tend to fill up quickly, but I own 3 dogs, Golden Retrievers, and I expect with their shedding I would look for the bag to fill quicker than usual..... When I replace the bag, I've found that if I place the machine on a low table, and lower the handle as low as it will go... almost flat, then the bag is horizontal, I can remove the bag quite easily with a minimum of dust spillage. I had some generic bags which came with a small wide piece of clear Scotch tape which one would use to seal the full bag. This feature is great when I am vacuuming for fleas........... but the Hoover Genuine product doesn't have this tape so I use a small piece of Scotch shipping tape to seal things up. I miss this feature. 5 Star Review is appropriate....more info
  • great price for OEM bags
    I purchased two packages of bags and the price was the best I could find for the ones I needed for my Hoover. The bags look Hoover OEM and with the allergen filtrate which is great. ...more info
  • Pretty standard, easy to use
    I use these for my Hoover U5140-900 Tempo Widepath Bagged Upright Vacuum. They're pretty standard/easy to replace. I've been told they're a little small for vacuum cleaner bag, but I've had no problems....more info

    The product was received in short response time and was exactly as offered. We got what we wanted....more info
  • five starts for filtration, zero for ease of use
    First the complaint - these bags are awfully pricey considering that they fill up so fast. The bag is too big for the compartment, so you have to fold it over at the top and bottom to get it to fit into the allotted space. Despite having owned this model vacuum for seven years, I still need three hands to get the corners of the over-sized bag tucked into place before slamming the compartment shut.

    Changing the bag is a dirty bit of business, because when you pull the old bag off, all that super-fine dust at the top goes *POOF* and escapes from the bag's opening . We've taken to putting the vacuum on the back porch before opening up the bag compartment to keep dust out of our home.

    I see a name brand competitor has come up with a solution to this by putting a little trap door thingie by the bag's opening, so when you pull the bag off the vacuum, all the dust doesn't fly out of the bag and go *POOF*.

    Okay - the positive - these Hoover paper bags do a decent job of trapping fine dust particles, but I do wish they'd figure out how to make bag removal and installation easier. Or just make the bag a different shape so you're not contorting it to get it into the allotted space.

    More recently, I've started using Filtrete (3M) bags. Made of cloth, they're lined with an electrostatically charged media which captures dust and dirt down to .3 microns. Because they're cloth (instead of stiff paper, like these bags), they're much easier to install into the Hoover vacuum. The Filtrete bags are more expensive than the paper bags, but I think they're worth the extra money. ...more info

  • What I needed, delivered quickly
    They don't sell vacuum bags in stores as much as they used to because there are so many different types of vacuums/bags. I was so frustrated looking for these, that it was a great relief when I got them by ordering on-line....more info
  • no problems
    They're just vacuum bags, nothing special about them. But they're pretty durable, although they do fill up rather quick. No complaints otherwise....more info
  • So...where can these be purchased in a b&m?
    I've had no success in finding the "Y" bags in stores. Anyone know where they are? Please share. Thanks....more info
  • Good Dust Eliminator
    I find these bags to be very good in getting the tiny dust particles. Yes, I do find the bags in general to be on the pricy side especially since I have had several rip. At any rate, I have not had a problem with putting the bags on or taking them off. I vaccuumed up something accidentally and needed to remove the bag to get it out. As I attempted to carefully remove the bag (one I had just changed), it ripped right off of the cardboard ring and I had to replace the entire bag. As for the big "Poof" when changing bags, I try to be careful and haven't really had a problem. ...more info
  • You Get What You Pay For
    This is the first Amazon review I have written but after reading some of the negative reviews on this item, I had to add my 2 cents worth. Although expensive, the price here is still $3 less than I found anywhere else (stores and the internet). This is the lowest price I have found these bags selling for (you get 3 bags in the pac). If you have allergies, you will appreciate spending a little more for a bag that really does trap the fine dust particles, etc. I do not have a problem installing or removing the bag. No dust escapes when I remove the bag.

    I would also rather pay the shipping charges to have items delivered to my front door than driving around town, especially when you add in the time it takes you to shop, the cost of gasoline these days, and the risk of an accident when you drive....more info
  • WAY OVERPRICED ITEM
    Absolutely RIDICULOUSLY OVERPRICED ... get a grip! Whoever would buy this item at this price and the extraordinary OVERPRICED SHIPPING doesn't know how to shop!...more info
  • A little pricey but convenient
    The reviewer who complained so about the price could find these at her local ... chain store. These are standard bags available everywhere. Amazon is nice because you don't have to leave the house. For some an extra [bit of money] is worth the convenience....more info
  • Highway robbery for a simple product
    After shipping, this pack of 3 is right around the cost of buying it locally.P>There's nothing here worth 4 stars. The vacuum cleaner perhaps, but not the bags. It's a simple paper bag like any other; it's not rocket science. It's worth about $0.50 to manufacture, and they could make a profit at ($$$)/bag. This type of pricing is nothing other than highway robbery since they have us latched already. My next vacuum might be one of those bagless models.

    If somebody wants to post something helpful, please let us know where if anywhere we can find these bags (inexpensive) from a third party....more info

  • Just what the doctor ordered.
    Well, if you have allergies and need to cut down the ambient dust, these bags are purported to do just that. As a part of a total house hypoallergenic program, they seem to help. The price here is a bit cheaper than at my local retailer....more info
  • Reasonable
    Ok, the bag fills up fast, but then that's because the system does such a terrific job. One bag lasted two weeks, but then the cleaner itself gives an indication when the area is still dirty, so you tend to be more careful in vacuuming.Bag replacement is a bit clumsy but no more so than most machines. I had no trouble removing the bag and not spilling its contents. Yes, you have to fold the top and bottom over when you install it but that's because it unfolds when it fills up. Expense? Most vacuum cleaner bags are too expensive....more info
  • Hoover does better with their vacuums than their bags
    First the complaint - these bags are awfully pricey considering that they fill up so fast. The bag is too big for the compartment it's supposed to fit into, so you have to fold it over at the top and bottom to get it to fit into the allotted space.

    Changing the bag is a big hassle because when you pull the old bag off, it's full of all that fine dust you were trying to keep out of the house and it all goes *POOF* when you try to delicately remove the bag from the vacuum.

    I see a name brand competitor has come up with a solution to this by putting a little trap door thingie by the bag's opening, so when you pull the bag off the vacuum, all the dust doesn't fly out of the bag and go *POOF*.

    Okay - the positive - The Hoover bags do a superior job of trapping fine and itty-bitty dust particles. But I do wish they'd figure out how to make bag removal and installation easier. Or just make the bag a different shape so you're not contorting it to get it into the allotted space....more info
