Rated 1 out of 5 by Shan54 Do not like this product
I just finished using this vaccuum again and am finally writing my criticism. The product is incredibly frustrating to use. The hose is way too short and causes the main body to fall over regularly. For example, even though I thought I had the vaccuum close enough to me, it toppled and almost cracked a glass coffee table. This design feature could have been easily solved.
I also find that when I clean my large throw rugs, I have to use the vaccuum accessories (hose, brush) because the main vaccuum does not clean adequately.
I'm incredibly frustrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ken M This vacuum is very good.
I have no problems with the Bissell vacuum 22C1-2 that I have owned for about 6 months. I saved it from the landfill as someone was throwing it out (probably because it was not maintained and needed to be cleaned, which I did and it looks brand new and operates as new too). It performs as well as much more expensive vacuums at a mere fraction of the cost I see them for in the store. I like that it is bagless and as long as it is emptied regularly and the filters and receptacles are cleaned properly it is wonderful. It does require that regular maintenance that the bagged models don't but it really has very good suction every time I have used it, which is several times a week.

I really like this vacuum, especially for the price. Has all the attachments I like, including the turbo brush, which is great! I like the cord, and this one of the few lower-priced models that have one this long. I like the 15" path, the headlight...all of it. I have two cats and sweep at least every two days, including two couches, and it really does the job well. Thanks, Bissell!
I can only choose one option in the drop-down menu, but I would actually recommend this for carpets, upholstery, stairs, bare floors, and pet clean-up -- it works for me on all this.

I purchased a Bissell clean view vacuum I am disappointed with my purchase. I bought this hopping, to be able to use the upholstery attachments, to clean my stairs and furniture the suction is so poor it won’t even clean up a piece of lint! This was purchased in April of this year, I may use this vacuum about 2 times a week, I have checked all the filter and they are fine, I have even looked through the owner manual hopping find some info on poor suction, have not found anything, hopping you may have some suggestions for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by R2Dtoo An Outstanding Vacuum!
I am the Maintenance Director of an Assisted Living facility here in Utah and purchased the 22C1 Bissell to replace a Dyson model 25 that has given us problems from the day we bought it. This Bissell is AWESOME!!!! Very easy to use, quiet, convenient tool storage, powerful, and it really sucks (a very good thing!) There is no loss of suction as it fills, and it is super-simple to maintain! We use the vacuum four times a day, 7 days a week, and it has ran perfectly since the day we bought it! Plus, the price was about one-forth of what we paid for the Dyson. I highly recommend the Bissell 22C1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kayAnn Great vacuum for the price!
I've waited a couple of weeks since receiving this to post a review...and I sweep at least every other day, so have used it enough now. We have two cats and I probably should get an actual "pet vacuum" but this one was so much cheaper. Plus I researched online and compared this one to the last two vacuums I've had - which were Bissell CleanView II Plus. I loved them, and they both still run and pick up, but just wanted a new one.
This Helix was the closest I could find - wide path, headlight, dual edge cleaning, on-board tools, same type of hose and length of cord, etc. And I love this Helix as much as I did the two CleanViews (which are like 7 and 9 years old, I believe). It picks up great, and I'm already used to the size of it and how it maneuvers. The only thing I miss is that this one doesn't have the stair-handle on the front, but I'm getting used to using the actual carry-handle on the back. My favorite part is the Turbo brush!
Thank you, Bissell, for making such great vacuums at affordable prices!!

Just put it together and used it for the first time. I just love the features of this light weight Sweeper. Attachments are easy to use, and I love the Febreeze Vacuum Filter. Pleased so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bissellstinks. the Worst!
This is the first and last Bissell I will purchase. The dust and dirt comes flying out all over every time I vacuum even if it is not full. The worst money I ever spent. I will go back to using my old hoover!
