Rated 3 out of 5 by nitwit OK vacuum
Pros: good suction, Style, quiet, metal base on hard floor carpet tools adds to duality, multi suction levels to suit your cleaning needs.
Cons: dust bags are not hepa. Handle is cheap and uses friction to hold attachment. Does not offer a power nozzle-air or motor driven.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nitwit Ok Vacuum for the price
I purchased from my local Lowes store on clearance for $30. I use it to vacuum out my cars. I'd use it in my home but it doesn't have a power nozzle or offer a power nozzle for carpeting. They should offer HEPA dirt bags. I don't like how the hand nozzle attaches to the metal wand. It slips in and out. Nothing to hold it in place but friction. The canister unit is of sound design and quality of materials are good. I like the multi suction levels as well as suction control on the handle. Overall its a good vacuum for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Clarry Glad I have a bagged vacuum
I'd looked for a bagged vacuum -- not easy to locate. Opticlean is a good looking vacuum with relatively good suction. However, because of black on black print in the user's guide, I had to phone for assistance as I couldn't discern the location of the parts as shown.
After four times of use, the power cord doesn't completely retract. Not a good track record! Also, separating the wand from the handle can be trying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gma I love this machine
This is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever had. The storage compartment for the tools is so convenient. It is easy to maneuver around and the swivel action of the floor attachment makes cleaning a snap. The telescoping wand is a life saver for someone on the shorter side. I can reach higher objects with ease. Changing attachements is very easy. I dont mind vacuuming now. My house is so clean. It is fantactic for cleaning up pet hair (2 dogs an 1 cat). I highly recommend this machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fran Decent machine but pricey bags
Vacuum bag looks small and costs $4 each no matter how or where you buy them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Howard 12 very pleased with this product
This is my first tank vacuum and it is taking some time to get used to how to best pull it around. It is very quiet and the suction is very good. I like the ease of getting to the attachments and all the filters. My only complain is that I have a cat and the vacuum only balls the hair up, I have to remove the head and use the bare tube.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sally14 Electrical Cord Retraction
The electrical cord will not retract back into the canister. The handle and cleaning part of the vacuum are very heavy and difficult to maneuver around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clamp Very Good
We replaced the wall to wall carpeting with tile in part of our condo, about 650 square ft. We needed a canister vacuum for cleaning the tile. This unit does a nice job, is quiet, light weight, and very easy to use. The set up was easy and quick. The replacement bags and filters are easy to get from Bissell's web site. Have use it for about 30 days and love it.
