Purchased my Bissell about 1 month ago and have had a pleasant experience so far. Sure it requires cleaning after each use but after a few times now it is simple.
Accessing the lower filter was a tug- of - war but with the help of someone it is now easy for me to do alone.
So far so good.

First time purchaser of a cyclone vacuum cleaner, but needed to replace my 1995 upright bag vacuum. Assembly was easy and when completed was amazed how light weight it was and ease of maneuverability before even plugging it in tho the rear plastic wheels seem cheap and squeak. But once I turned on the switch I was amazed how quiet this vacuum is and the dirt it was picking up. My home is mostly carpet and I had just cleaned the carpets last year with a Bissell carpet cleaner. I couldn't believe the dirt, lint and stuff that was collected. And without the burnt rubber smell of the drive belt or the odors that the Hepa filter picks up that I experienced from my old upright. Dumping the dirt from the canister is straight forward if you follow the directions along with the additional clean up you might need. The attachment hose could be made to be more forgiving to allow more reach when using attachments. Overall I'm quite pleased with my purchase and better yet the replacement filters won't cost you an arm and leg compared to the competition.

We recent bought the new silk carpeting from Mohawk. This carpet is very plush and thick. We were having a hard time finding a sweeper that would sweep without getting stuck. We went to a specialize sweeper store and he wanted us to buy a 600 dollars sweeper. I wrote Mohawk and asked them what they suggested to use, the Bissell was one listed. Thank goodness it worked. It does a great job, however I am seeing a little dust coming out of the bottom, not enough to take it back. Very pleased with it overall.

I read a lot of reviews before I bought this vacuum. It is definitely powerful and picks up a lot of stuff you can't imagine is there. Unfortunately, it also puts back fine dust as you vacuum. The plastic "tank" is not sealed on the bottom, so fine dust blows out all over the outside of the tank and the unit. There are also many MANY small crevices where the dust gets stuck and cleaning it is quite a nuisance. It would need to be cleaned thoroughly every time it is used.
In addition, although I was forewarned of a short hose that doesn't reach all ceilings, I was used to that with my previous vacuum. I was surprised to find out, however, that even if you are of average height, you have to bend over for the hose to reach the floor to get into the corners. Not good.
I took the vacuum back after one use.

when I saw it at the store I thought it looked high quality and at a great price. but when I got it home and put it together and felt how light it was, I thought that it would not do a good job. my previous vacuum weighed three times what this one does. I am simply amazed at the great job it does with it being so light.. I also love canister and how it empties so easily. the power cord winder is perfect instead of wrapping the cord. I love everything about this machine. my wife does not vacuum so I do it all and this machine has made my life easier. thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by momof3wahs Awesome product at an awesome price!!!!
I just bought this vac 6 days ago, and what a great job it does! My favorite part is the smartbrush attachment. It really spins and has a great power brush!
you can also carry this buy the handle on the dirt chamber tank and it is secure. I guess I even would say the very best part is the retractable electric cord!!! I have waited a long time for a reasonably priced vac that had a retractable cord! Thank you Bissell!
it is able to clean well and I have 2 dogs and a cat and kids!
I actually used it on my comforted that is a fur magnet when the dogs get on the bed, when they are not supposed to and that hand attachment picked up ALL the fur and it was a lot.
just love it!
