Rated 5 out of 5 by Walrus Great so far
I've only used it once thus far....I'm lazy....but it has met with all my expectations. I particularly like the suction controll which enables me to vacuum the drapes without the machine swallowing them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mercedez shuck....
My sister in law bought one for me and I am surprised! I have lost a wheel and suction too. I had another vacuum for two years and it suddenly died on me so I figured it wast time to get another one but this one just crapped out on me after a few months. Problem is that she got it for me online so I have no idea what to.do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mrs. Riverrat This is a really good little machine
There are many things to like about this vacuum, however I do have a few suggestions. The telescoping extension wand is a GREAT feature. But the hose could stand to be about 8" or 10" inches longer to reach tall cabinets for dusting. The suction is very good. I do wish the wheels were a little more "friendly" to move around while working. It is better than some, though. Overall I like this vacuum and hope it will last as long as the workmanship implies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vaccuumsharing10 so good we are buying a second one
daughter moved to her own new place. told her I would go buy a vacuum like mine and much to my disappointment I could not get one immediately on the spot as they are not in the store I purchased mine previously. We have pets and hardwood floors and rugs. I haven't had any problems with replacing any parts just yet and have had it for about a year now. This vacuum is tough! It picks up all the pet hair etc. and we can pull it through the house and get in tough to reach spots. Love the retractable cord. I have tried a lot of vacuums in the past and this one does have so much power and works so well, I am afraid to try any other model or brand. I will be ordering the second one for my daughter online. In the meantime, we are sharing mine until her order arrives.

Rated 1 out of 5 by moudaddy poor suction
My girlfriend bought this unit a few months ago and used it a few times and complained everytime how it didnt work, i talked to her and said i would try it thinking she was doing something wrong, nope there was no suction, i tried adjusting the suction still nothing, she ended up using my vacuum (name withheld). She purchased her cleaner to clean her carpets now she has to purchase another cleaner, or continue to use mine. I hate to give a bad review but this one is warranted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by yoyo Should if not used for heavy dirt in carpets.
this works great for light picking up of dust,crumbs, short fiber carpets and bare floors, etc,,,but if you use on dirty carpet, it clogs with hair easy, and fine dirt really sets off and clogs all filters..not worth the trip and cost for filters. 4 of them..even after cleaning the washables is disgusting,, every time I use canister seeps fine dust particles around seams, I see dust come out the back like an exhaust often. Will not buy another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mary 68 This product is very loud with a high pitched sound when running
It's suction is okay but the noise is awful. It is like running an
old vacuum that has lost it's ability to run!
This machine picked up dirt but ran with such a high-pitched
sound it hurt my ears. It also did not pick up dirt well on

Rated 5 out of 5 by BISSELL FOR LIFE AWESOME LITTLE HELPER FOR A BUSY MOM
Do I need to say? I have kids. and I have mess in my house. I have tried all those premium-elite-king- cyclone-hurricane or what not standard bagged vacuums before! They are OK but heavy, messy, smelly ( due to bag storing all the dirt all day long in your own house), did I mentioned bulky? And you have to haul the whole thing back and fort. Well for my busy life and kitchen I need a quick picker upper- but not hand held small vacs -rather this versatile and strong canister. I clean my floors, if the dirt cup full, I take it off, shake it to trash, rinse it every once in a while. (the whole attachments, dirt cup, filters, hose everything can be washed and sterilized with a bit of bleach and ready brand new clean whenever you need it.) NEVER PAY for another bag again. It never failed me, I have banged, dropped, dragged this canister around for so long and NOTHING HAPPENS TO THIS THING. Ok. well until l I forgot my dirt cup and filters next to my heater to dry them after washing it off. I forgot them next to my electric heater and unfortunately the plastic dirt cup melt at one side ( MY fault). Rather than running to store and get a new vac NO sir, I just ordered the replacement part for my beloved little helper. Will continue using this for another 3 years or so with the new parts.
I have to add as well as carpets this one is MOST PERFECT for BARE FLOORS, I use it to vacuum my extra large giant bare floors in kitchen, living room and entrance. Since I vacuum those places very frequently I don't need to hassle with bag changing and the smell and inefficient bare floor function of regular bagged vacuums. Have you tried to vacuum a handful of sand of the floor with those? Sucks. it spits it right back to your face. But my Bissell canister doesn't leave a speck behind! Yes I am a regular real mom not paid survey taker. I love this vacuum. Thank you Bissell for making my life EASSSSY.
