Alright, I'm going to tell you right now. If you have animals that are constantly shedding this is not the vacuum for you. I have a German Shepherd and a Boxer. I swear it seems like my GSD leaves a trail of hair behind her when she is walking. I don't have any carpet in my house aside from some area rugs. It has its good and bad features.
Pros: It's very lightweight, and easy to maneuver. It does a great job sucking up hair and dirt. The detachable hand vac is nice. I like that the top portion of the handle can be flipped down so that it's not taking up tons of space wherever you store it. The washable filter is great. It's convenient for quick cleanups.
Cons: The cordless factor. I don't know what I was thinking. I feel like I have to race through my house with it before it loses charge. And I have a small house. I'm sure some cordless vacs hold a charge longer, this one does not. The charge lasts longer if you switch it to the first setting without the rotating bristles going, but I stopped even bothering with that because it starts scattering stuff everywhere, doesn't pick up the hair after like 10 seconds, and when you lift the vacuum up (turned off) it barfs dirt and hair all over the floor. It just doesn't have much suction without the bristle setting. It's nice for zipping around as a daily thing, but there's no way I could vacuum thoroughly without it dying. IF YOU HAVE CARPET do not buy this!!! It will murder the battery charge in 30 seconds, I'm serious. It does that with my area rugs. Also, when it's charging, the light glows red, but it never changes to green or whatever, you just have to guess if its done charging. Because of all the hair my dogs shed, I have to stop and empty the vacuum out like 5 times.
I guess to sum it up, it's not a bad vacuum, it just doesn't work very well for what I need it to. I like it, but I'm going to buy a sturdier one with a cord for deeper cleanups.

After charging the vacuum as instructed I went to use it and it lasted a whole ten minutes. It had great pick up in those ten minutes but not worth the money for only 10 minutes of battery. Very disappointed. I'm going to have to return or see if Bissell can send a new battery and give it another try.

I really liked this when I first bought it .When the charger wouldn't work anymore I ordered another one . I just got it last week and now the handle broke off the bottom piece. I tried to glue it ,but that didn't work.

Love the light weigh unit and ability to use as a hand vac.
Perfect for our hard wood floors.

When the vacuum was new a few months ago it was a perfect fit for use in my new house. Now, the battery won't charge and it is a stick of plastic taking up room in my closet. I would not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Scott3344 Handle snapped off
The handle of this 8 month old product snapped off at the on off switch as I was doing a normal vacuum. I would not recommend this to anyone for any reason.
