Rated 3 out of 5 by jpalmer08 Works well, when it works
We've had this unit for about 1 1/2 years now and it works great. Well, it worked great. For some reason, the unit will turn itself on and off during use. We've tried cleaning the contacts, cleaning out the unit completely, making sure it's not defective; however, it still turns itself on and off during use. We've kind of found a way around it by holding down the button the entire time, but that was the reason we bought this over the Dyson Shark...you have to hold the silly button down the entire time. Sounds simple, but it's actually quite annoying and your thumb begins to hurt after a while. Either way, we love the product. It's suction is great, workability is awesome and it's a quick clean. Our only issue, which we're not sure is defective is the fact that the power works intermittently.

We purchased this for quick pick-ups in between weekly cleanings, mainly because of our pets. We love it. It easy to use, quite and easy to clean and picks up well. We would recommend this.

I purchased this machine after tripping myself up one too many times on my staircase with my regular vacuum. Purchased this to quickly vacuum my hardwood floors in kitchen, living and dining rooms and those pesky stairs. And, I should add, I have four dogs. A year later, and I have not yet taken out my "big" vacuum.
I had read a hint about putting a single square of toilet paper over the first foam filter and changing that every time I emptied the cup, as well as making sure to keep both filters clean. I did that from day one and am amazed at how well this stick vacuum functions. I have no complaints. In fact, the dogs' seasonal spring shed has been incredible this year and yet this stick vac keeps up. We are thinking of investing in the lithium version so one is upstairs and one downstairs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by George13 Better than the Shark
Great for our small home. It is not as noisy as the Shark we used to have and the handheld cleaner is easy to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TB357 Good product but no parts available
Works quite well on our rugs and hardwood floors. However, the foot nozzle assembly stopped working, and Bissell discontinued this and other replacement parts which renders our unit basically useless. Third party vendors don't have the part, either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angie6685 Best stick vac
Pleasantly surprised by how well this stick vac holds up compared to others I've owned. Light and easy to handle, holds charge well and very versatile.

Have had this sweeper one year. It is used every day. It does a great job picking up dirt, hair, etc. It works well on carpet and hardflooring. I have a lot of back problems and am able to use this sweeper with ease. It isn't too heavy for me to pick up or push. I had to stop using the big upright sweeper as it was too heavy for me to pick up and too heavy for me to push. I am very pleased with this sweeper and highly recommend it.
