Rated 1 out of 5 by Abbie Don't even bother
I purchased this vacuum two years ago upon moving into my current studio apartment, and from the start this thing was awful. Even when it was new I could smell the motor burning up. It barely had any suction to begin with and would ocassionally and randomly reverse direction and blow what was in the vacuum all over my apartment. I live alone with no pets, so there is not a ton of strain on the motor. Now it doesn't suck at all, it just blows air out the top. HUGE waste of money, I'm going back to my parent's 20 year old Dyson. Don't waste your time, it's more frustrating than anything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Selk A good little vac for the price
I received this vacuum as a gift upon moving into my first apartment several years ago. It has lasted longer than I honestly expected it to (I was afraid I would break it first thing, as it's so lightweight).
It's a little slower to do the job than most vacuums I've had experience with, but it gets the job done, and I love not having to fuss with bags.
On the downside, it really has problems with long hair getting caught on the brush, and because of the plastic guards, it's hard to clean it thoroughly without unscrewing the bottom piece and taking the brush out completely. I have pretty long hair and I find I have to do this every two or three uses. Not a huge problem as I have only a few area rugs that I vacuum once every few weeks, but I really wouldn't recommend this vac for use on a large area in a household with a lot of long-haired people...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fran would not recommend
bought this for my mother because of it being lightweight. I do not recommend this product if your are using it on carpet. It is too lightweight and "jumps" as you are trying to push it across the carpet.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tenn27 Nice for first few months
Vacuum lasted ten months before the belt and floor brush broke. Came to this website to order new parts and found out it was going to cost more than half the price of the vacuum!!! My last vacuum, which was a hoover, lasted six years before I had to replace the belt. Therefore I cannot recommend this product and will not be buying another bissell product

This vacuum was good for about 6 months. Its not sucking up any dirt anymore. Im not sure if I need a new filter or what. I've looked on line and at walmart and I cant find a replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mame Light, but it has great suction.
This little vac is great as it is so easy to use and it has great suction. I had one like this before and it lasted about 9 years that is why I bought a second one. I would recommed this to any one who wants a lightweight vacumn

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jasmin Still satisfied :)
I was looking for a light weight "powerful" vacuum for reasonable price. I live in an apartment & currently have 2 cats i was concerned about clogging but i've had this product for over a year 1/2 now and still going. Just as long as the filter is replaced (avail online when not avail in stores-just ordered one) the suction remains powerful. Just recommended it to someone & would do it again :)
