The Hoover LiNX Signature (MSRP $149) is the storied company's latest attempt at a cordless upright. When we first tested the vanilla LiNX, we were disappointed by its weak dirt pickup and hefty body. It was especially confusing since Hoover also makes the excellent Air 2-in-1, a better vacuum for the price.
This time around, the Signature greatly increased its dirt pickup. During testing, it suctioned up 63% of the dirt we left out for it– three times as much as the old LiNX.
