Rated 5 out of 5 by Patty Dream Machine
We have never owned a Bissell product before, but we bought this product to replace my wind tunnel after looking at everything on the market. I'm so happy with it. It's light weight and easy to transport between home and RV and car. One thing I particularly like about it is it's ability to clean floors and area rugs without adjustment or without pulling the rugs up. Because of it's light weight I expected it to have trouble with the rugs, but it glided right over them. Watching the machine fill with dirt, dust and pet hair is actually kind of fun too, and emptying the cylinder is simple. Thanks Bissell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RetiredGuns Very good vacuum
Needed to replace a 10 year old Hoover, but having only a couple area rugs did not want to spend a fortune. The reviews for this Bissell were go so we took a chance. We really like the vacuum as it cleans well and is very quiet,

I have owned other Bissell vacuums and have been happy with them. This one is the best! I recently downsized to an apartment with both carpet and wood floors. This vacuum does a great job on both. Plus, I love the fact that all the parts can be easily removed for cleaning and rinsing. I have two cats which generate a lot of fur and dander. This vacuum is great at getting it up. I also appreciate the retractable cord. Great vacuum, especially for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kumar309 Best Vaccuum Cleaner
I used this Vaccuum cleaner on both- bare wooden flooring as well as carpet. It has a very good suction power and cleans dirt from everywhere. It also has different attachments which can be used for corners or under the bed.
Very easy to assemble, store and use. Very reasonable pricing from Bissell and easy to use. Before this i owned a Hoover, but now I'm a fan of Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by peeps real suction
so far I have been happy with the vac I purchased. clean sweep actually has good suction and does many jobs better than most. It has needed accessory's and is fairly easy to move about. I got more vac than what I expected for the price and that is nice for a change.

It really does the job. I have lived in my apartment for about 10 years and just bought this vac. It removed stuff on the floor I didn't know was there. Already a big help with my dust allergies..love the HEPA filter feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alt BEST VACUUM EVER!!!
Let me start off by saying that I own a Dyson but once I bought this vacuum it blew it completely away. It's so much quieter, it picks up everything...and I mean everything, and it comes with all attachments whereas my Dyson didn't come with all of that. It's so good that I purchased one for my grandfather, oh btw if you need something that's not heavy then you're looking for the perfect vacuum. I'm trying to give the best review for others seeking something good and inexpensive and this is it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lori6364 great vacuum for price.
I researched this vacuum and seen that it has high ratings. I love the easy way to take it apart to clean it. No tools needed which is very convenient. I have 2 dogs and I like the way it sucks up their dog hair. The only negative thing is the hose has a short adapter which connects to the vacuum. So if u want to vacuum a corner or a lil object u have to put the longer attachment. on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by noiseson Confused
When I first got this vacuum it worked fine on the rugs and carpet at the beginning but now it only works on hard floors. The hose still sucks with extreme force, so if I want to vacuum the carpet I have to use the attachment which takes a lot longer and the vacuum keeps falling over and hitting me because the hose is so short. I'm really confused as to why I can't use it normally on the carpet any more, it can't even suck up a piece of fuzz that I placed there, it just moves it around. I have cleaned the whole thing and inspected it for any clogs. I can't afford to buy another vacuum, so I either have to live with dirty carpet or take 30 minutes to do one room and end up in a lot of pain by the end.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NitaG Power clean One Pass
I have paid less for a vacuum cleaner and been more satisfied. This model cleans the carpet well enought but its awful to dump out the dirt. The hose won't stay in the receptor. It's hard to open the area where the filter is and even more difficult to clean. The only really good feature is the retractable cord.

I have had my Bissell vacuum for 1 year now and it has just stopped working completely! As suppose to dirt going in the bagless compartment, it goes back in the air and redirties my carpet. I have checked both filters, hoses, and brushes. All are clean but NADA!!!!! Maybe it was only to last 1 year???????

I need to tell everybody about my True comparisons between the "BALL" and the Bissell ClearView! I have used the Ball for the last two years and the only thing the "Ball" has over the ClearView is Mobility! The ClearView is a Much Better Vacuum all around. The Bissell made the Carpet look new!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Linda Lou not sealed enough
I purchased this vacuum a couple of weeks ago knowing from the price it was a lower end model. The suction is awesome on it, but it seemed the more I emptied the clear-view canister and cleaned the filter, the worse the dust escape got. The vacuum is entirely covered in dust and you can see and smell it in the air. Also, it is really difficult to open the canister to get to the foam filter. I am going to return it to the store. I will upgrade to a better Bissel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Brandon3989 Worst vacuum ever!
I bought this vacuum a year and a half ago and I've had nothing but trouble. I get half a room done and then I have to empty it because all the hair goes to the funel and then it no longer sucks. I found myself emptying it more than I do getting the job done. I will NOT own another Bissell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sam the man up-right vac
The price was right and the sale person said it was well worth the money. The hose is to short. The filter and bottom unit will
not release now. Have to take a screw driver to help release.
I'm not a happy camper with this vac. So please look at some
reviews before you buy.

The first year worked wonderfully now everything comes out of the back and no suction at all from the hose. Have tried everything. Complete waste of money.

I wanted this or help with hair and the cord rewind. It cleaned really well until while using my handle broke very disapointing. I liked the product but can not use now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by llrat01 belt problems
This product works well initially but after about a year the belt seems to always move along the spinning brush causing it to get auctioned itself and burn rubber literally. We have replaced the belt numerous times and still have this problem. We have a dog the filter does need to be cleaned more often than it said in the manual.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Frosty23 Good, lightweight vacuum
Just purchased this vacuum. Have used one time, so don't have much input on durability. However, it really picks up dust and dirt. The dirt cup is easily removable and easy to open. However, if you have to clean the filter part, as one reviewer mentioned, you have to stick your hand up into the tube and get dirty. I would suggest doing this part outside, if possible. The main drawback, for me, is the electric cord is at the bottom of the unit. So, when you let go of the electric cord and then have to pick it back up again to move the vacuum cleaner around, you have to bend almost all the way to the floor to do this, and the older I get, the more difficult this becomes. I'm trying to remember to lay the cord over the top of the machine when I'm not holding it, but it would have been nice to have it come out near the top of the base instead of the bottom. Four out of five stars for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Farm Wife Cheap to Own and Easy to Keep Clean
This vacuum has not needed any repairs and is not falling apart and really picks up on all my floors. I do have to clean the filter each time I use it and let it dry before I can put it back in, but that works for me each day. If I don't clean the filter it will be spitting out the back on the vacuum because it must be cleaned between uses, but that is because it really picks up. I also think that using it on bare floors is not good with this vacuum, but that is alright with me because I just sweep those floors and mop them with the steam vac, now. I am so happy to have this vacuum. It has out performed any vacuum I have used previously and that says more than you could know. It has saved me tons of money in replacements and I love it better than the expensive one I had. I never thought I would say that about any other vacuum. I will buy only Bissell from now on. I like having a good brush on it for the carpets. I live on a farm and cleaning the carpets often is necessary. I am looking now for a heated water shampooer to own, next, in Bissell. Love Bissell. I could not believe how it is bag-less and other than my own electricity it is costing me nothing to own. Every time I vacuum it picks up everything and I could not live without it. For me it is about Bissell products for my floors. Which Bissell product do I want and prefer is what I look for now. Thanks Bissell! Great Product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by WBNY Very disappointed
Have had this vacuum ~1.25 years. I should have returned it right away, but we aren't very close to the store, and I needed a vacuum immediately. So now I'm stuck with it until it gives out (which might not be much longer). I have hardwood floors with some area rugs. Here are some of the issues I have had with it:
1) The vacuum is supposed to be better-suited for carpets, but because it has a bare floor setting, I thought it would work reasonably well on the hardwood. It doesn't. Even on the bare floor setting, the brush turns, spitting debris out the back of the vacuum. Not only are your floors not clean after you vacuum, but it also feels like you're getting sand-blasted if you're in bare feet. So I rarely use it on hard floors any more.
2) When you're using the wand, the brush still spins (even on bare floor setting). So you have to be careful that the constantly spinning brush doesn't damage the surface the vacuum is sitting on. There is also a section of cord that was chewed up by the vacuum.
3) When using the wand, the vacuum tips over easily, because the hose is not long enough. You have to be quick, to get out of the way.
4) The filter clogs almost immediately. I do have a dog, but it clogs even before I get done with one area rug. When the filter clogs, a lot of debris gets stuck up at the top of the canister. This happened the first time I used the vacuum, so I really think it's a design flaw. As mentioned in other reviews, you get filthy cleaning out the canister. You push the button to neatly empty the canister, but if you want to get the trapped debris out (and maintain suction), you have to stick your arm up in there to remove the center portion.
5) The suction was initially pretty good, but after a while, it started to become less effective, even with regular cleaning of the filter. Now I often run it on the bare floor setting for my (low-pile) area rugs, or it won't clean very well. This makes it really hard to push and as a result (I think), the handle has started to come apart.
I was really disappointed when my last vacuum lasted only 5 years. I will be surprised if this one makes it to 2 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Diane Great suction
I've owned this vacuum for over a year now and the suction is just as fabulous as it was on the first use. Its lightweight and easy to maneuver.
My only complaint is when using the tools the hose doesn't stretch well and the vacuum always falls over....I've lost many household glass items because of this. Also the turbo brush tool hit the floor and fell completely apart on first use and I was not able to repair it. You also need to be careful of the cord as it is on the bottom of the cleaner and the little indentation at the top of the cleaner, which is made to hold the cord, is much to big so the cord does not stay in the holder.
Otherwise it is a great vacuum if you are looking for something that takes care of pet hair easily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Erica26 Better off sweeping the carpet...
I have had this vacuum for 14 months. It worked awesome the first 2 months, then it started clogging. Then the belt kept falling off. I replaced the belt and it STILL keeps falling off (yes, I put it in correctly). This is just a horrible home appliance and I can't wait until I can replace it with something that actually works. Even when the belt stays on the suction is poor. This vacuum throws more dust around my apartment than there was to begin with! It is literally useless.
