Rated 5 out of 5 by Lorraine57 Love, love love this vac
This is probably one of the best purchases I've made. I've owned mine a little over 2yrs now & I'm about to buy one for my daughter. Great suction, lightweight, easily maneuvered. I do empty it & clean the filter often. Unfortunately, I have to drag out my large, cumbersome vacuum once in a while for my rugs and carpeted areas but this little gem is awesome for quick cleanup & I love it for my hardwood & tile floors.
In my opinion, the only thing that would make this better is a longer cord but I just use an extension cord.

I love this vacuum! We have wood floors throughout the house. I have been using the Swiffer Vac and it's started not keeping it charge after 8 months. I will never purchase a rechargable vacuum ever again. I purchased the Bissell 3-in-1 Vac and have never looked back. I love it. It actually picks up the dust and pet hair.

I love my 3 in 1. I have 3 dogs and it is so light weight and picks up all the dog hair. Does a great job on my furniture too. I vacuum everyday when I get home now. Only have 1 suggestion, a cordless version.

Had a demo of a Kirby. Had just used the 3-in-one on my bare floor (I have no carpet..allergies ) before he arrived. He went to work and was surprised at how little dirt showed up on the pad. He asked what I use So I pulled out the Bissell. Hope is jaw is better. It hit the floor pretty hard when he viewed my fantastic vac. And the best news, one small payment and it was paid for, without jeopardizing my budget. Good job Bissell.

This has got to be the best-kept secret around. An outstanding product for a give-away price. I didn't know you could buy anything that plugs into the wall for so little money, much less a vacuum cleaner as lightweight, powerful, easy-to-maintain and easy to get under furniture as this little jewel. They're cheap enough to buy one for every room. Easy to store; we hang ours on the wall! We've had ours for several months and it's so good we bought a spare. Wouldn't want to be without it. Order a couple of extra dirt cups from this web site so you'll always have a dry one handy. Just take the filter outside and hose it down, then let it air dry. No complaints about this product and no, I'm not on their payroll.

I love my Featherweight 38b1l 3-IN-1 VACUUM. It's made my daily cleaning a breeze. I have a white tile floor, so I need to take it out maybe 2 or 3 times a day, and it is very efficient!
Thank you Bissell!!!

I purchased my second stick vac and find I prefer the old stick vac instead of the new one. The old one had a gasket around the filter cup which seems to contain the dust better, also the floor attachment will not stay in the new one no matter how tight we try to insert it into the unit. Bring back the older model.

I wanted something small to do quick clean ups with my two labs. Hair and other particles get sucked up into it nicely. The filter needs cleaned out after each time with my hairy dogs. I did add an extention cord to it to give me the distance for the area I needed to do a quick once over. You can take off the floor piece and do crevices on couches or wherever. It comes with a crevice tool. I like the long handle that allows you to stand upright when doing floors. Works nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redds89 Replaced a shop vac
I lost my one vacuum and had to borrow a shop vac to use. And when we saw this low calorie at vacuum and its features we jumped on it. I love it. It took me 45 minutes to vacuum compared to an hour to an hour and a half

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lorena Linda Very pleased with this little vac!!
I needed a new lightweight vac, this one looked good, was on sale and I brought it home. I was very pleasantly surprised. Lightweight, easy to handle, goes almost any where and really cleans. No more wrestling around with a heavy one. I really like my vac.

I bought this for our travel trailer. It does such a great job getting up grass and whatever else gets tracked in. I have some carpeting and it works like a charm. That little vacuum has quite the suction! Very pleased.

My wife bought it for cleaning her car, At first, I thought that it is only good for the car cleaning job (it real is) but to my surprise it is so good in vacuum my entire house (1st floor tile and 2nd floor laminate). It also is lightweight, I love it. Now I consider to buy the Bissell 2949 as gift for my wife too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lanee23 this product is aweful
I have laminate floors through out my whole apartment with one larger area rug. I had to go over the same spot over and over again and it barely vacuumed the dirt on my laminate. I would not recommend this or buy another one. If there was a rollar in the attachment to help suck up the dirt it might be better.

I used my vac as soon as I got it out of the box and put it together. I vacuum my drapes, couch, chairs, in the kitchen, and the bathrooms. It does a wonderful job around the toilets. I tell all my friends and family to buy one, if my mom doesn't buy her one then I'll buy one for her.

I use my 3in1 practically every day. It's perfect for my hardwood floors. I have a larger vac for big jobs but due to back problems, I only use it on carpeted floors weekly. I also like the wheels on the new version

I purchased a larger vacuum to send with my daughter to graduate school last fall. The 38B1-L came free with the larger vacuum as an incentive. When I moved her home last month I noticed that canister was virtually pristine. My daughter said the 38B1 only worked the first time she turned it on. I checked it out and the motor was dead.

This is my fifth 3-in-1 vac. I use it almost daily to clean up dog hair and whatever else they drag onto my tile floors. I also use it to vacuum off furniture. I have 2 3-in-1 Vacs - one in each area of the house to clean up the hair from my 5 dogs. It was also great that when I bought my last 3-in-1 that is was on sale at Wal Mart for almost $5 off the original price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Louise Love Love Love this little machine
I love this little 3-in-1 so much I have ordered 2 more. One to put up for when mine breaks and one to give to a friend who has opened a restaurant.
This machine picks up all the fur from my 2 dogs. It is light weight and goes under furniture easily where the fur likes to drift. Have used it on linoleum, hard wood, and low pile carpet. Works great on all three and could not believe how much it picked up.
The only negative I have is that I thought a crevice tool came with it. Some reviews say they had it and some did not. Wish that it had one---was in picture and write up about it but not in carton so guess it is not included.
Anyone with animals that shed will not regret buying this little wonder.

Works great on low-pile carpets and hard floors.
Excellent price, plus as an added bonus the day I purchased the 3-in-1 it was on sale !
Great deal !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Crazy Dog Lady Love it!!
I absolutely LOVE my stick vac! I originally bought it on black friday at walmart for my dorm room. It worked great for the tiny space and tile floors. Now I'm renting a house that contains three women, five dogs, and one cat and I have to vacuum at least once a day. Sure I may have to empty it two to three times, but it gets all that pet hair and dirt! I also love using it for my side job of cleaning houses, has unbelievable suction for such a little vacuum!
The only downfalls I have found is that it would be better if it had a slightly larger canister and a longer cord. Also, I find it doesn't work well for getting pet hair off carpet, low pile or not, so it is quite annoying that I have to pull out 'the big one' for the one rug in my entire house.
For the price and for hard floors it is wonderful though! Now if only I hadn't lost my crevice tool...

Rated 3 out of 5 by onewomanink Hoping it's Better Second Time Around
I purchased the 3 in 1 vacuum a few months ago and all was good for about two months. However, by about the third month, an annoying little problem occurred; the latch that holds the handle stem secure to the canister, kept popping off causing the vacuum to split in two. Being disabled and having a hard time vacuuming or sweeping anyway, the constant bending forward to reach the bottom half of the machine was very painful.
All that being said, the vacuum works like a charm, has a lot of strength for such a small thing, and helps me keep my floors dog hair and dust free. I love it.
Because of the latch problem, I contacted customer service for assistance. I was pleased that their first response was to ship a replacement out right away. Good stuff!

We have hardwood floor throughout our home, four children our own ages 1 to 11 years, we babysit two others ages 2 and 6, plus we have two cats and one messy large dog. They all make a lot of mess and this stick vac does exactly what I need of it. It is perfect for the stairs, floor, even the baby's highchair! I love that the floor part detaches and attaches so easily. The kids even enjoy using it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by msbende So far it is a great little machine
After reading all of the good reviews I decided on the 3-in-1 vac. I am very pleased with it so far. It works great to clean up around my kitty litter box, and other quick pickups. I would have given it 5 stars if I didn't have to empty it so often :)
I have tried them all, Orick, all the other name brands. If this will last longer than 1 year I will be very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pattycake Super great for all small jobs
I purchased this vacuum strictly for my kitchen floor. The first time I used it I was absolutely amazed at the suction it had and how easy it made cleaning the floor. I have since used it in my bathrooms and on my carpet. It is really good at cleaning corners and those little spaces in the doorways. I remove the handle and wheels and vacuum my furniture. This was nearly 3 years ago and now I'm buying them as gifts. I love this baby.
