How I wished I found this site before I bought the Hoover DM4490 Hepa! Totally useless - can't even suck up a cobweb! I'm not exaggerating. (read more)

The Hoover DM4490 vacuum cleaner is the worst appliance I have ever purchased in 50 years of married life. Mine is a little over 15 months old, and it has already had one new motor, but it still cuts out after 15 minutes usage. Parts drop off it on a weekly basis. The dust container has to be washed and dried each time it is used.
A complete waste of time and money. (read more)

Who designed this cleaner?

The Hoover DM4490 Hepa is a complete waste of money. I wouldn't buy another vacuum cleaner made by Hoover. The aftercare sales just harp on about the receipt!
We have had two of these now, and both have ended up with the same problem! Deafening noise! (read more)

This now sits in the garage waiting for ther tip after only 6 weeks (read more)
