Slim and speedy, the 6-amp Hoover Flair stick cleaner is a handy cleaning tool for bare floors and low carpets. It has a 10-inch floor nozzle for efficient coverage and collects dirt and debris in a bagless dust cup for easy upkeep. The cup is clear for monitoring and pops off quickly to empty in the trash bin. A washable cloth filter is included inside, and an additional side-mounted filter helps keep smaller particles from returning to the atmosphere of your home. In operation, the handle drops to horizontal for maneuvering under furniture, though the oval body may not fit under especially low-slung tables and chairs.
Simple to use, the Flair includes a swivel nozzle design and oversized casters for easy turning. A rocker switch on the handle controls power and a foot-pedal toggle changes the nozzle from "bare floors" to "carpets." Outfitted with a 20-foot power cord, the vacuum comes with quick-release cord hooks and a hole in the handle for hanging storage. Hoover includes a one-year warranty. --Emily Bedard

- good but cheaply make
The first impressions of the vacuum was very good but the brushing mechanism is cheaply made and did not last long. If you only use it for floors that are NOT carpeted you will be satisfied. ...more info
- handy vac for quick pickups
Fairly good stick vac. We use it mostly for cleaning our tiled kitchen area. Has adjustment for bare floor vs carpet. Good suction and light weight for easy handling. Only critiques are the base floor piece does not have a locking attachment to the body, though its unlikely to come off easily. Also the flaired, oblong shape can make maneuvering a bit funny at times....more info
- Great until it fell apart
With new low pile carpeting (berber) and tile floors elsewhere in my home, this seemed to be the perfect solution and alternative to my trusty Kenmore. The Hoover was easy to handle, descent suction, fairly easy to empty the canister (albeit slightly messy as the dust/dirt tended to "fly" a bit), long electrical cord and an overall lightweight appliance easy enough to manage under tables and chairs and such. However, the third use resulted in a crack in the foot that attaches to the body - this resulted merely from preparing to turn off the machine - too much pressure when placed upright? One crack lead to another, then chunks flew off to the point that the bottom no longer stayed attached to the unit, no way to replace the part without replacing the entire base/foot - not cost effective and of course, past the 30 day return. If the hard plastic connection from foot to base were reinforced or if a preventive measure of duct tape or such around the connection were made I believe this minor adjustment would resolve this unfortunate complication. A call to Hoover netted "ah, sorry to hear of that, never heard of a problem like that before". I didn't know the one I bought for my sister had done the same thing until after I shared the details of my call to Hoover with her. She agrees it's a good concept, but plagued by an otherwise minor flaw....more info
- Hoover S2200 stick vac
An exellent product.I would have given it a 5,but I find the cord hangs down too low from the unit,making it a bit awkward....more info
- Great product
This is the third Flair I have purchased, we have a dog who loves to shed, so our Hoover gets used every morning. The first one broke at the neck because I did not make a hook to hang it from. The second one overheated after three years of service. The third is doing just fine. I have searched for a comparable vacuum for the price.. none out there that I could find. I will say it is more suited for floors than rugs. Not that noisy. Great manuverabiltiy, ie. under bed, around furniture legs, in corners. ...more info

- Good for a dorm room.
This vacuum works very well for a stick vac. My daughter says it works really good in her dorm room at college. We have an older model and it works great too. These are very good stick vacs. Would buy another one....more info
- Older reviews are not accurate now.
Hoover S2200 Flair Bagless Stick Cleaner. This stick vacuum cleaner was given a great review by Consumer Reports,(2009). In reading the reviews here I was skeptical but wanted a new stick cleaner so I bought it. The problems of short cord and not standing upright against wall have been taken care of and I can say for dog hair it is so far the best vac cleaner I have had. It is light weight and easy to empty and does a good job picking up. Some people who have had trouble with these light weight vacs, as far as not working, might do well to understand that they have to be emptied much more often than those with bags, especially when there is dog hair involved....more info
- this was a retunr
We returned it. I thought it was cordless, but it was not. Appreciate the quick refund to our credit card. You guys are good!...more info
- It sucks
This is the coolest looking vac and it works great so far. (only one week).I got a dirt devil stick but it had no suction power. This thing can be used for a whole wood floor room. I have full size vacuum cleaners for the bigger jobs. This one works when you don't want to schlep the big guns. I think the design is decent (cleaning takes a minute or two---not bad). Eventually, I'll have to buy more filter bags but that's expected. Very few stores carry this so take my word on it. For the weight and price, I couldn't find a better product. ...more info
- People...do your homework!
People, people, people...Please DO NOT buy a stick vac for carpet!!!! They don't do well! If you have a house full of carpet, this product, (or any other stick vac), is going to frustrate you! If you bought a stick vac for carpeting, your review should immediately be stricken from this forum! That said...
I love this little cleaner. I have 2 big dogs, (pergo and tile floors), and I have no problem grabbing this vac and spinning around the house. Suction is great. I make beaded earrings and this even sucks up the run-a-way beads on the floor, (small ones).
The way the head pivots and being able to lay the body flat to the floor enables you to get WAY under furniture and around their legs.
Down sides? The cord could be a little longer, not being able to stand it up takes a little getting used to and I wish it had a bag, (I think all bagless vacs are disgusting to empty!).
If you want the PERFECT cleaning solution...grab this stick vac for your hardwood/pergo/tile and a Hoover Tempo Widepath for your carpeting. I replaced my mega-buck O---k with the $40 Flair and the $54 Tempo and I've never been happier! Tempo is Consumer Reports Best Buy and even though it isn't sold as a "self propelled", it IS! Great suction too. (Make sure you select the correct carpet height, too low and it heats up!) Happy cleaning!...more info
- Perfect for wood, tile and marble floors! Great for pet hair, too!
With a large, furry dog who sheds and a house full of hardwood floors, I am always looking for a light and easy-to-use vacuum. After several failures with other products, I found the Hoover Flair. It is so lightweight, and the swiveling head lets me get in tight spaces like corners, around chair legs, and even under the sofa with no problem. A vast improvement over my full-size cyclonic vacuum. It works beautifully on wood, tile, marble and other hard surfaces. The Flair can be used on low-pile carpet and rugs, but I would use it for those only in a pinch.
Pet hair is particularly tricky, because most vacuums have brushes and/or a beater bar, in which my dog's hair gets caught. Pulling out hair that's wrapped around brushes and rollers is a huge pain. This Flair model (NOT the more expensive one with the Power Nozzle, which has a brush) doesn't have a brush. It's an open hole so the hair goes right into the chamber. The Flair has good suction and picks up just about everything.
The only con I can think of is I wish it had a longer cord, but this is minor. I can get around a normal sized room without changing outlets.
I highly recommend this vacuum and would have gladly paid more for it....more info
- Buyer Beware
My Hoover Flair Stick broke the 5th time I used it, snapped right off at the neck. Apparently this appears to be a common problem, and I wish I had read these reviews more closely before purchasing.
To add insult to injury, because it was past 30 days (but less than 60), Amazon will only refund a portion of the price. What a ripoff! I understand it is not their fault, but they should honor products they sell.
If you still insist on purchasing one, do so at a retail outlet that will refund the full purchase price when it breaks off.
Good luck....more info
- Great little vacuum
I read all the other reviews and decided to try this cleaner. I have all wood floors with area rugs. This cleaner does not have a motorized head so it doesn't suck up the area rugs. I can clean both the hardwood floors and area rugs. The filter cup does need to be cleaned just about every time you clean, but does a good job. Has quite a lot of power for the size. Put the head on the hardwood floor setting for the rugs too, or the rugs will get sucked up. The head pivots and has wheels, so manuvers very well and with ease. Does not stand on its own so I am careful to put it down when not using. All in all, a very good cleaner for hardwood and area rugs....more info
- Hoover S2200 Flair Works Well
Got the S2200 Flair Bagless Stick Vac for Christmas. Have been using it for a month and am very satisfied. Have a small apartment with wood floors but I do have a cat. It really does a good job of picking up dirt and cat hair and it does pick up kitty litter! Emptying the removable cup and filter can be messy. It also does not stand upright on its own but overall I am happy with it....more info
- Hoover s2200 Cleaner
This is a very quiet and powerful stick cleaner. I have gone through many of these stick cleaners, they all seem to be either very loud or not very powerful. I also wanted a corded model. The Hoover has been very good at picking-up dirt on bare floors. ...more info
- Very happy
Even though my dog has short hair its white and my wood floors are darker , this product is v easy to hld and powerfull !! gets all the pups hair and more right up , buy one ...more info
- You get what you pay for
I had this vacuum for 2 years until it died. I'm actually surprised it made it that long. I can't say that it was great. It didn't pick up everything on the carpets or floors. And when I would pick it up to move it into the next room, it liked to drop half the dirt is just sucked up. The filter was a pain to clean. Not recommended....more info
- Flair is not so Fair
One thing I must say is this s2200 is very low on suction and I was very disappointed. The easy disconnect of the dirt cannister is a plus, but just doesn't make it as a very good dirt picker-upper. Please make your decision to buy a different model, this doesn't work very well....more info
- Hoover Electric Broom
I found that many cordless stick cleaners run out of power in a short time and have weak suction.This is a corded cleaner that never runs out of power and the suction is strong. Cordless products are not always better. ...more info
- Great deal
Good value. It works just fine on our travertine floors as well as the oriental rugs. Nice swivel action on the head which allows us to vacuum under most of our furniture. It looks like you have to be careful with neck, so we hang it from the wall using the hole in the handle and a 1/4" lag screw. It's perfect for our requirements....more info
