Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackie's mom I love the HEPA filter.
I have allergies and this a great vacuum! I like it so much I got a second one for upstairs. No bags required. No hassel to assemble. Just dump the catcher cup and go. I will occasionally also blow the entire vacuum out with my husbands air compressor.
Mrs. Clean is very happy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mary40 Disappointed
I purchased this vaccum several years ago. I automatically felt that it was cheaply made. It's hard to push on the carpet and almost impossible on my thick area rug. I can only walk backwards, pulling the vaccum towards me, on the area rug. The suction is near non-existant now. I'm going to change the filters and check for clogs, but I would honestly prefer to just throw the thing away. I'm also not a fan of the canister. It makes a dusty mess when you empty it. I'd rather just pull a bag off and throw it in the trash.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ISM Mom awkward emptying
not my favorite vacuum. The canister gets stuck when I need to empty it, and to empty you need to manually unlock it. (fingers get all dusty)
I have other Bissell products (deep cleaner) that I am happy with. This one, not so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Montana_Man Excellent Vacuum!
I bought this one month after moving in to my apartment. My carpets had been professionally cleaned right before I moved in. I used my old vacuum several times before I got the Bissell, I even used the old vacuum 24 hours before I tried this one.
On the very first use, the Bissell Healthy Home picked up enough dirt to almost fill the cup! I am very impressed with the performance of this vacuum. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sweep62 Great Vacuum
We purchased this vacuum to replace a Hoover Dimension and we are thoroughly pleased with this vacuum so far in the first 5 weeks of owning it. We have used it 3 times now and are almost embarassed by how much dirt it is picking up that our old vacumm had left behind. The first time we used it we actually had to dump the canister and continue to sweep. It has numerous floor height settings. The only negatives is the hand held power unit is somewhat weak and as other reviewers have said the crevice brush keeps falling out of its holder, there needs to be a design change here. A postive note also for their service, a part (the tube holder) was broken at arrival, however one quick call to the service center and the part arrived the same week with no questions asked. We would purchase this same unit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennifer33 Highly recommended vacuum
This vacuum is wonderfully easy to assemble and even better to use!! This is my second purchase of a Bissell vacuum. I gave my first vacuum to my mother because she was so impressed with it's performance. My brother now owns one too. It amazes me how clean my carpets may look to start, but Bissell will definitely pick up the unseen dirt, dust, pet hair, etc. This is a fantastic vacuum!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TAR25 MY NEW BEST BUDDY
I have had a Kirby vacuum for over 30 years and it finally gave out. I looked and read reviews for a long time before choosing this one. I definitely made the right decision. The suction is amazing, I like the wide sweeping path, the easy to empty dirt canister, attachments are easy to access, and the safety shut off feature if the motor gets to hot. I just experienced my vacuum shutting off automatically, because some paper got lodged in the suction tub causing it to get to hot. Just had to remove the clog, wait 30 minutes for it to cool down, and ready to go again.
I just love this vacuum!!! A great replacement for my Kirby.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KathyANN super powerful, and no more bags !
After 10 years and 2 long haired dogs in the house , my Oreck finally gave up. Had researched Bissell , and when I found this one on sale at a retail store I purchased immediately and am THRILLED with it. After putting it together I immediately vacuumed a 4X6 area rug and the canister FILLED UP with dog hair lint dirt etc. I was amazed and still am . Yes , it is heavy to carry up the stairs but so worth it. I also suffer from allergies, and am not waking up congested , itchy eyes etc since I vacuumed my bedroom. LOVE IT
