Rated 4 out of 5 by Diabeticdoode I love it, but it has it's faults.
This is a really excellent machine, and I definitely recommend it. For an upright cleaner it is flawless. I have a few area rugs that I use it on, and it literally lifts the carpet up when you get to the edges. It really feels like it's giving you a deep down clean. I also like the fact that it's not that noisy. A vacuum is only good if you can actually use it without ear protection! The dirt container is also perfection, I love the bottom empty cup, the exposed cup on my older Bissell was a pitfall with that dust flying everywhere when you're finished. With the bottom empty cup, the dust cloud is kept to a minimum. For what it's worth, I also really like the way it looks. It looks futuristic, and the colors go together well.
As for the faults, because the suction is SO fantastic, the hose is next to useless when you use the turbo tool. Literally useless. The suction pulls the hose so taught that you literally are not able to use the tool easily. I have no idea how this could be adverted, but as of now I just stay away from the turbo tool. (which is a shame because it works perfectly, but like I said, it's next to impossible to maneuver that hose with that attachment on there.) The power switch. Now, I'm one of the few (? I've seen some people complain about it) that actually like the power switch style that most Bissell vacuums use. I like the little rocker switch on the side of the vacuum. You always know if it's on or off, and it's wonderful. HOWEVER. On this model it is almost all the way at the bottom of the machine! I'm nearly 6 ft tall and I have to literally bend over and feel around for the switch. It's not intuitive at all. Move it up Bissell! The extension wand. I complained earlier in the review about the hose and the turbo tool, but when you use the brush on the hose, just the hose, or the hose with an extension it's perfect. The suction is incredible. BUT the extension wand provided is A JOKE. It's not worth putting on the machine! When it's attached to the hose there is barely any extension. Maybe an extra 12 inches? If that? Luckily I have 2 Bissell extension wands from a previous vacuum that I can use. Put a full size extension wand! Or even 2! They always come in handy. Lastly for faults, the pre-motor filter. Now, I realize it's supposed to catch dust, but I got the machine new, used it 3 times, and that little yellow filter was PACKED with dust, dirt, and hair. So following the directions I washed it out, let it dry, and put it back in. Used the vacuum 2 more times, PACKED AGAIN! So, idk if maybe the machine is just designed that way, or if it's a fault in my machine, but that seems waayyy too frequent for filter rinsing. Just my 2 cents. (not really a fault, but worth mentioning, the cord is way short. My old Powergroom had a 35 ft cord which was heaven, and very usable. 25 ft just doesn't cut it in my book.)
Overall like I said in the beginning of this review it's an excellent machine, with a few faults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by candymanpit great technology!
Hi. I have had a fair chance to use and review this vacuum system. It meets and exceeds all the expectations. The one swipe really does work well. I really like the hand vacuum attachment and it works great on furniture and stairs and completely air powered. The hose is a flexable rubber style hose and flexes and stretches well. Not stiff feeling at all. The heights are great. Work well even on bare floors. Canister really collects well. And easy to empty. Filters are easily removed and can be cleaned. Color is ok too overall. Only thing i did notice was it has a little weight to it. The power button is set low on vacuum. And it can run a little loud. But its performance during use out weighs a few small issues in my opinion. I like it. It makes my house look nice. Would recommend to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary28 So far so good
I've owned a lot of very pricy vacuums over the last 10 years. I also have owned many Bissell products throughout the years and have been impressed as well, the products last I vacuum twice a day so I normally keep 2 in my big home. I have a german shepherd and he sheds non stop.
This vacuum the cord is short but check out the new ones that they didn't feature. I saw them after it was too late. The healthy home Bissell products are all great too by the way my father wanted me to add that. I've also read they are going to be having new ones this year with the power switch on the top. That's the only thing competitors have against you guys and not much longer! Can't wait.

I was amazed at how light-weight the vacuum is. Easy to put together and operate. It does do well on one pass, but I did 2 and still got a little residue. It has good features. The only thing I would want done different is separate suction from the base and the tools. Great for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by House Husband Outstanding Value
+outstanding suction results in excellent dirt pick up at the edges and excellent hand tool performance
+very light weight
+long handle is great for tall people
+high quality hose seems very durable
+easy to empty dirt bin
+high quality plastics
-the machine's light weight means it will tip over when stretching the hose
-on/off switch is situated very low on the machine
This is the best vacuum I have ever owned. I also own a Bissell Momentum Cyclonic and a Liftoff which are still used as a car and shop vacuum. The one pass technology of the CleanView does as advertised. I am impressed with the build quality of this inexpensive machine and I don't see any flimsy plastic parts that could suddenly break off due to my twice a week use of the vacuum. Thanks Bissell!

Does this vacuum have the option for a bare floor setting? To turn the brushes off?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dell Bissell #3
replaced a 3 year old vac due to excessive noise. I replaced the brush and that helped for a while and then it got loud again so off to shop again. The CleanView was within our budget.
My wish would be for a longer and more flexible hose and additional wands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DavidW Works like a pet hair magnet!
Really like seeing how much more dog and cat hair the CleanView Vacuum picks up from our carpets than our other machine. The strong suction also makes a difference on our hardwood and tile floors. It doesn't have a sensor light to indicate when a spot or area is cleaned to the fullest, but you can get a good idea because of the see-through dirt tank, which is easy to empty and wash. Sure like not having to purchase vacuum bags! Filters seem easy to reach and clean. The CleanView is also a bit narrower so we can get into tighter spots for more thorough vacuuming. The design makes it pretty easy and comfortable to use. The portion of the power cord nearest the vacuum can be clipped to the back of the handle at the top to help keep the cord out of the way while vacuuming, but the clip doesn't always hold it that well. And while an extension wand is supplied for reaching heights and hard-to-access places, we'd like to see a longer vacuum hose that detaches for such spot vacuuming -- or, perhaps an extra extension hose that could be coupled for a longer reach. The power switch could be located a bit higher on the machine for convenience, but overall, this is a good vacuum for quickly and thoroughly cleaning the variety of floor surfaces in our home. And it makes a great companion to our Bissell SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner, which allows us to quickly clean up pet messes and spills.

I love this vacuum. My floor has never been so clean. I like the attachments especially the little roller attachment. Its nice to be able to see when its time to empty the canister and not have to buy bags. Its just been really great discovering all its uses. I reccommend it highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mandy1 Great vacuum for the price!
This bagless vacuum amazed me the first time I ever used it with all the disgusting fine dirt and debris it removed from my floor! I was stunned! It is not too heavy, but for the price, it is definitely NOT a lightweight, cheaply made vacuum. The power cord is nice and long. The on-board tools are easy to access and even though I wish the suction was a little stronger with the on-board tools, it does a good job of cleaning furniture, window blinds, etc. The filter and canister both clean up nicely and easily. I also like being able to raise and lower the beater bar to accommodate a range of floor types. The suction of the unit is incredible when vacuuming bare floors, low-pile rugs and carpet! Overall, I am very happy with this vacuum and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to purchase a new one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Claudlrc Great lightweight vacuum!
Great for regular vacuuming. Great on my bad back! However, not enough power w/ the tools for me, Power switch could be a little higher for my bad back. Also, when using the hose, the vacuum keeps falling on me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by deb77 Bissel Cleanview Vacuum
I received my vacuum and at the time was staying at my fathers house. We both tried it on his berber carpet and found it was very easy to use. Both of us have lower back problems and are wary of heavy vacuums. It was easy to push across the carpet and maneuver in different directions. I like the ease of emptying the chamber, how it really seems to pick up the finest dog hairs in all types of carpets. I am not crazy about the placement of the on/off switch. I also like that it is lightweight and easy to pick up and move when not running. My father liked it so much he is thinking about buying one for himself. All in all I am very pleased with Bissel Cleanview Vacuum and have already recommended it to others and on facebook! Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris94 The Cleanview Vacuum has great features!!
I bought this vacuum looking for something to pick up pet hair and cat litter better. This vacuum does both. The power behind this vacuum is great. It picks up pet stuff better then my Shark vacuum. On bare floors, it was excellent on. It is hard to find a vacuum with great suction on bare floors and this vacuum was excellent at picking up cat food, cat litter and other debris.
Pros: Pick up great, easy release on dirt tank, long cord, TurboBrush tool works great but vacuum is a little heavy when doing stairs. Extension wand works great adds a little length to using the tools, tools in a very convenient location on the back of machine.
Cons: Little heavy when carrying upstairs, due to the length of cord knots easy and watch out so you don't trip over it, the Quick Release cord wrap was not quick release didn't work, pay attention to height adjustment when doing very low pile carpet. Needs to be on 2nd adjustment to pick up cat food or anything that is not small. Area rugs need to be stepped on to hold down with this vacuum. The power of the suction puts it up very easily which can be annoying. Need to have medium to high furniture for this vacuum to clean under.
Over all this vacuum is worth the money I paid for it. You will not regret buying it. Love this machine. Finally found a vacuum that picks up pet stuff. Hurray!!!

Living in a retirement community where housekeeping is provided twice monthly, I didn't think I needed a separate vacuum until I used the new Bissell One Pass - it is one great cleaning machine! One hour after my apartment was cleaned I used the new Bissell and the amount of additional dirt picked up was incredible. The clear view container was almost full. The full suction with the One Pass Technology made for a quick and thorough job. I really like how all the attachments are stored on the machine. I am recommending the Bissell machine to our housekeeping staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barbara This product has good features
I have 2 Pomeranians, and one long haired black cat, they all shed a lot. It usually take me 2, 3 passes before my carpet seems clean, even though I know it's not. This Clean View really does a great job of picking up on the first try, I can see and feel a difference. I vacuumed again to see if did as it says, I did get a little bit more off my carpet, but that was to be expected since my old vac was not doing a good job. It is nice to vacuum and know your carpet is clean without wearing your self out. My husband used to vacuum for me, he still vacuums once in awhile, but now I vacuum.
It's also nice to just push a button to dump the dirt and hair. But to clean out the inside (it gets really dirty) I suggest a person ware gloves to take it apart. Even with that I think this is a great vacuum, it's a step in the right direction.
I have been using it now for about a month and I love it.

Wow! I am impressed with this inexpensive Cleanview Vacuum. I give it 10 stars. Before using this I did all my carpet with my old OTHER brand vacuum then I immediately vacuumed all over again with my new Cleanview and thought, it won't get anything up being that I already vacummed, uh uh, the canister was filled with all that my old vaccum did not get up and there isn't any "blowback" from the Bissell!! BISSELL is BEST!!! LOVE IT!!!!!

I have carpet as well as bare floor. I also have 5 animals in the house and coming and going. I used to have to broom the bare floors, then vacuum. Not any more! Now I vacuum on the bare floor setting. it does a great job. At first I went behind with the broom to 'prove' it to myself. Wahoo! Bissell, you saved me a step in my cleaning process. Then change the setting, get the rugs and carpets. I emptied the cannister for the first time after a week. It was very easy! After that, I use my Power Fresh Mop and my floors have never looked better with this less work! :)

The CleanView Vacuum is fantastic. This light weight vacuum has a very strong suction. It picks up dirt with just one pass. I had to make several passes with my other sweeper. The large dirt tank is also very easy to empty and clean. The attachments are also very handy and easy to use especially for picking up dog hair off the couch. I would highly recommend this wonderful vacuum to anyone who is in need of a new vacuum. Thank you Bissell for such a wonderful invention.

I just received my CleanView Vacuum and used it for the first time, after the EASY assembly, (and I have arthritis), and THIS vacuum picked up everything my OLD vacuum missed and THEN some! I couldn't believe the difference! I CAN'T believe the difference! My old vacuum was useless and this one made my carpet look NEW! I am SO happy! Thank you, Bissell!! Also, the little Turbo brush WORKS REALLY WELL!! I had one of those on the old vacuum too and it would just bog down and there was no suction to it. This one works like a mini vacuum cleaner! Really POWERFUL!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by candymanpit Very Comparable to Dyson Vacuums, But BETTER!!
hello. i have had the chance to use this vacuum cleaner. upon my personal use this is what i see from it overall. first, it has pretty cool coloring to it. mine is black with the purple. this vacuum has a very good size cord on it. it has very good reach on it. the shape of this vacuum is unique. its kinda curved throughout the handle and helps keep me from bending over so much with it. it has very good power to it and the brush spins very well. the one pass technology seems to work very well. i took an older bissel and vacuumed my living room. took this model right after i got done and ran it. i picked up a ton more i couldnt even see on it. and it picked up even sand. i had no idea of that one. so i was surprised. has terrific suction power. the attachments. i like the hand vacuum thats with it. you hook it to the hose and it spins very fast. i used it on my furniture after the cats layed on them. it took all the animal hairs and stuff off. leaves perfect vacuum lines. also works very well on carpeted stairs. i also used it on the bare floor settings. it picked up right away. i didnt see no real issues there. the hose is a rubbery flexable hose. not the solid plastic type, so the stretch and flex easier. with the extender wands attached its a typical size and not to short or long. the filters are completely washable. very nice and cost efficient. the canister for collection does hold alot. but this was my only issue with the vacuum. the canister shows an empty line 3/4,s the way up it. i fou b.s. d that you really dont want to wait that long to empty it. it seems to struggle when its half full or more. you can hear the motor running slightly at a higher rate. but this is an easy issue. i used to work for a company that used dyson vacuums, bagless. by the way the bissel,s have better suction. but even with the other brand, the canisters should realisticly be emtyed every room or two wether its full or not. this will keep this vacuum running at peak performance. other than that i find that for a bagless vacuum, this is a very good model. thank you and hope this review helps others.

I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of suction power this vacuum has and how much dirt it pulled out of my carpet.The vacuum is also very lightweight and easy to maneuver. I love that it is bagless and the container empties very easily. I am 6' tall and found the handle to be a sufficient height as well which is a nice feature. Another well designed product from bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin J Surprised at the value and quality!!!
After being notified that the machine was being shipped, my wife vacuumed the carpets with our old very reliable machine. The new Bissell arrived in three days and I began the assembly process, which surprisingly took only about ten minutes. We then revacuumed the den and livingroom and was shocked at what had been left behind by old reliable. We have a small young puppy who seems to be shedding her winter coat, mostly on our den sofa. Using the hand held attachment the sofa was cleared of puppy hair in short order. Storage for all attachments is conveinient. I have always been impressed with Bissells' products and am extremely surprised at the quality of this machine based on its cost. I highly recommend...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Evelyn Fantastic vacuum!!
I received the vacuum, followed the easy instructions to assemble it, and vacuumed my living room. I looked down at the cannister and saw a huge wad of stuff in it and thought I had done something wrong and not attached a filter. I opened the cannister and was shocked to find that it was dust and pet hair out of my carpet. I have a central vac system and thought my carpet was clean until I used the CleanView. Of course, I vacuumed the rest of my house and filled the cannister half full before I finished. I have not had a chance to use it a second time but am anxious to see how much more it pulls out on the second vacuum. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a great vacuum at a very reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Esta A. Clean View, One Pass wonder!
This vacuum arrived and I was so excited. I started by adjusting it to my carpet height with the easy to use dial, turned it on and off I went. With one pass I could feel my carpet getting clean, it stood up and I could see the dirt and dog hair going around in the dirt tank. I was very impressed with the suction in this vacuum and that the motor was very quiet compared to my old machine. As I traveled to the tile in my kitchen I noticed that the motor didn't blow the dirt away from the vacuum like my other machine did. When I decided to empty the tank I just pushed the handle and the whole unit came off, I tapped it before I emptied it and all the dirt just fell right in the garbage. I used the included tools to clean corners and small places, I even used the brush to clean my lampshades.
I think the handle could be a bit longer, as I vacuumed I noticed the ball at the end of the handle pushed into the palm of my hand and it was uncomfortable but overall I do like the grip. The plastic design of this unit feels like top quality , no sharp edges and it feels very sturdy.
Over all I think this is a great , very affordable vacuum with power to clean all surfaces.
I recommend this One Pass vacuum, another quality product from Bissell.

At first I wasn't sure about another vacuum like this with the see through bagless variety. I have never liked them. This one has such a nice size canister, I don't have to worry about cleaning my hallway and having to empty it! I can clean and clean and clean now before I have to empty it and it continues to clean! And the power!!!! WOW.....So far...I love everything about it.
