Rated 5 out of 5 by keynangelmommy Great Vacuum, Strong Suction .
This is a great vacuum to have on hand especially with a three and a twelve year old. The suction on this vacuum is very strong without damaging the carpet. I took one pass over the carpet and it picks the trash right up (some of my kids toys went in it ). Easy cleanup and the using of the attachment tools. It actually cut my cleaning time in half because how it picks up without me going over it more than once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blebo Best Vacuum We've Ever Owned
I just used my CleanView vacuum for the first time today and can't believe how much it picked up. It easily picked up things that our previous vacuums had problems with and took less time. It was also quiet and easy to clean. Even though I haven't used it yet, I like that the TurboBrush Tool was included. I't definitely the best vacuum we have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by me Awesome vacuum
Assembly was easy. This vacuum has superb maneuverability, it has powerful suction as it glides effortlessly and quietly over carpet. The filters are conveniently located and are easily checked, cleaned and changed.The large collection canister is a B I G plus in our household of 3 large, long haired dogs and it empties so easily. I highly recommend the CleanView Vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AuntyAnn Awesome vacuum cleaner especially if you have pets.
I purchased this item after I had read reviews comparing different cleaners and this one got the highest rating for suction, value, lightweight but still powerful, etc. I have a disability which limits the amount of weight I can handle. It was quite a shock seeing all the dog hair that was picked up on its first use. This is a great machine. I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Searcher 37 Works great but:
I rarely write reviews and frankly I don't rely on them too much, but I felt I needed to write this one in hopes the manufacturer would see it and become aware of some problems.
This vacuum does by far the best job of any I have ever had before.
Amazing pick up and leaves carpets not only clean, but fluffed and soft to walk on.
But: Keeping it clean is very difficult. Reason being that the latches will not open easily. And I mean all of them. The top part where the washable filter hides is the worst. I have to get my husband to open it and he can do it only because he is not afraid of breaking it. I am afraid, and I suspect it will break at some point.
The so called "easy clean from open bottom" is not too hard to open, but it is very awkward. The bottom lid is in the way and does not come off so you can shake out and clean the container.
The center filter piece is another problem. It is hard to find just the right place to put it and if you do it wrong, it is even harder to get it out again.
I'm not sure how long I can put up with these real inconveniences. And it is such a shame, because when it is clean and put together correctly it does a fantastic job.
It is not too heavy, it is easy to push around, it is not very noisy and the machine is colorful and very sturdy.
Many complained about the switch being too low. It could be better, but that would not stop me from buying this vacuum. Some complained about the cord being too short. Go buy a good, grounded extension cord for heaven's sake.
This may be too long, but it is as honest and detailed as I can make it and I hope it helps to make this really great machine better and keep it on the market.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ELKunkel Purchased less than a year ago and complete loss of suction
We purchased this vacuum less than a year ago and have used it a couple of times, no more than 6 (we have an older Bissell this vacuum is supposed to replace) and it's completely lost suction. We've checked the hoses, the belts, and emptied the cup (of nothing) and it still doesn't work. It's rather disappointing that we got this product and now it won't work. When it worked we loved it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by draco Broke within 2 weeks
I bought a Bissell 1816 vacuum about 2.5 months ago. It worked fine for about 2 weeks. Then, one day, I saw smoke coming out from the bottom end. I took it to the local service center recommended by Bissell. The service rep. found that the drive belt had snapped and the agitator was melted. He said Bissell would replace the vacuum and filled out the paperwork. I got a call from him later that day saying that Bissell had started processing my claim.
It's been 2 months since then. I am yet to receive the new vacuum and the local service center tells me that there is nothing they can do apart from waiting for Bissell to respond.
In short, it's terrible customer service.

This vacuum was easy to assemble and is light weight even when full. Super easy to empty container without getting hands dirty. Semi-quiet and picks up dog hair better than any other vacuum I have owned. Great vacuum for the price! Would recommend to all.
