Don’t let the small, thin design fool you—the Hoover Linx is more than capable of being the best vacuum for tile floors. Its upright performance doesn’t discriminate, providing consistent results whether you’re vacuuming carpets of hard flooring, like tiling. Its low profile design even allows it to reach under most low overpass furniture.

Why We Like It – Hoover Linx

Lightweight, strong, and thin, the Hoover Linx lives up to its name with its narrow design and low profile vacuum head that allows you to vacuum under furniture with low overhead.

Pros
  • Rinsable filter
  • Low profile design reaches under furniture
  • Only 8 lbs!
Cons
  • 0.5 liter dirt cup

Power

Unlike its brother, the Hoover Linx SH20030 isn’t powered by fade free lithium ion battery power—it’s corded electric, so you’re always getting powerful, consistent suction power. This becomes especially helpful, not just for carpet and bare floor cleaning but also lifting pet hair from said carpets and upholstery. The only other vacuum that comes close is the Dyson V11 Vacuum.

Speed & Efficiency

The Hoover Linx SH20030 is most at home when vacuuming debris from bare floors and low pile carpeting. Shag carpeting, on the other hand, is possible—just not as good. These Hoover stick vacuums have cyclonic technology, which provides a seamless transition when moving from carpet to bare flooring and vice versa. Its brush roll certainly helps, too!

Bin Capacity & Maintenance

Surprising no one, but the Hoover Linx SH20030 doesn’t carry a whole lot; in fact, this cordless vacuum only handles 0.5 liters. To be fair, if you’re vacuuming frequently, this won’t be an issue. Also, no need to use dust bags—it’s a bagless design. To maintain the SH20030, occasionally clean the dust cup and the rinsable, reusable filter.

Durability

Soft rubber wheels ensure no scratching of your delicate surfaces, which is a huge plus in our eyes. Of course, most of the Hoover Linx SH20030 is made of mostly plastic. It keeps it lightweight at just 8 lbs, but looks cheap. On the bright side, there’s very few pieces sticking out, so you won’t have to worry about breaking something.

Value

The Hoover Linx SH20030 might be small, but it packs a serious punch. But would we recommend it? Only if you have a smaller home. Considering its cleaning path is a bit smaller than normal, it’s most efficient when you have less to vacuum. Go figure! In return you’ll never have to buy dust bags again. Sounds like a good deal to us. If budget isn’t a concern, considering upgrading to a Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute Vacuum or perhaps a Miele Blizzard CX1.

Hoover Linx Wrap Up

Thankfully, the price was not an indictment on the Hoover Linx’s performance; nor was its smaller stature. Its bagless design and rinsable filter means you save a tonne of money in the long run. Who doesn’t want that? And at 8 lbs, it’s an excellent choice for the elderly too!
