Rated 1 out of 5 by Senior59 Bissell perfect sweep turbo
Hello Bissell consumers!
I went to Walmart on January 2nd, 2015 to purchase a Bissell carpet sweeper (non-electrical) just the sweeper, they didn't have any in the store. They had the Bissell (re-chargeable) sweeper for about twice as much as the regular sweeper. I decided to give the Bissell Perfect Sweep turbo a try. It worked fantastic (from January 2nd until January 5th then I notice it wasn't moving along the carpet as easy as it was at first and I couldn't figure out what the problem was until I turned it upside down and rotated the rear wheels and the left rear wheel wasn't rotating any more. It works in union with the front left rotating small sweeper. So I took it back to Walmart today (January 6th, 2015) and since I like it, I just got an exchange. Brought it home, plugged it up and let it charge for about 4 hours; it's 5:45pm PST as I type this
(I exchanged it about 1:45 PST.) About 5:50 PST, I took it from the charger and started to see if this one was okay until after about 5 minutes of sweeping (my carpet was clean; I just wanted to check it out and it's not a thick carpet); this time the right side went out only this time it was the same day.
I will be taking back to Walmart but this time for cash exchange. This product is no good. Keep in mind that I've had two in less than 7 days and they were both defective. Rating 0. Buy something else. BTW, I even put a 3 year warranty on the second one just in case it went out because Walmart only covers it for 30 days then after that you have to send back to the manufacturer. Thumbs down on this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephanie84 The best!!
This is the 3rd one I've purchased over the years. I use this everyday and it works so good. The battery runs for several uses with out charging. I showed this to my mom she has 2 of them now. My sister, brother, grandma, aunt and cousin all bought one after she showed them hers. We love them!!

Purhased this sweeper over a year ago and it is still going great. My grandkids all take turns running it to sweep up crumbs they drop when they are at Grandma's house.

I've had a Bissell Turbo Cordless for 15 years I bought to clean the carpet in our travel trailer and then began using between trips in our home. It got tired, so I bought a new one this month. We were always pleased with the Bissell, but this one is amazing. I now use it daily to do all the downstairs floors. It won't replace deep vacuuming, but it does a great job. I only wish the container were a bit larger so I didn't have to stop to empty it so often on windy days when junk blows into the house. It is twice as powerful as our 15-year-old one that will now stay in the travel trailer. I've tried a number of light floor sweepers over the years, and this one is the absolute best!

This is excellent. Outstanding. Purchased many brooms and sweepers but nothing and I mean nothing does the job like this sweeper. Rxeclent for rugs and sweeping the patio porch kitchen. Very powerful. This product makes my day

Rated 5 out of 5 by J&B We use it daily!
The Perfect Sweep Turbo is just what we needed for picking up crumbs and other 'lil messes our two year old creates throughout the day. We were so happy with its performance we gave one to my parents too.

This is our 2nd Perfect Sweep Turbo sweeper. The first lasted 7 years and worked perfectly during its lifetime.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Centauri61032 The 3-brush system is deceiving
I was torn between this unit and a competitive model. But got this for the Bissell name, and the '3-brush system'. Was disappointed to find the corner brushes aren't powered. They are connected to the rear wheels, and turn when you push the unit. And they turn backwards when pulling the unit. They are pretty ineffective. The sweeper works well in all other respects. But if 'edge/corner cleaning' is a priority for you, you may want to look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosebud Exceedingly Pleased with my Bissell
The Bissell Turbo Cordless Rechargeable Sweeper far exceeds my expectations. It is lightweight, handles easily, is very powerful and cleans up on tiled floors as well as carpeted and rugs, it runs very quietly, and most of all, I appreciate the long battery power. I have another brand cordless sweeper and this Bissell far exceeds the performance of the other one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LiveLoveLaugh Charge wont hold
We had a terrible house fire and lost everything- we didnt have renters insurance so our friends had a "replacement" party for us Since this was a gift I am now too embarrassed to ask who gave this to us- anyway the charge wont hold, I actually charged this for almost 4 days before I remembered I needed to use this- it worked for 1/2 a carpet room, you can see the roller slowing down and hear it lose its' energy- thought maybe It wasn't charged enough- 3 days later same problem- think I'm a bit frustrated by now! Wish I kept the box it came in but we moved to a small apt and have no room otherwise I would return it!

This is a great sweeper to keep things tidy in between regular vacuuming! I have 4 kids and 2 dogs and couldn't be happier with the quick and easy, lightweight Bissell sweeper. It's quiet enough to use when the twins are napping and powerful enough to tackle pet hair with success. Can't find a better product in this price range! I'd be lost without mine :) I use it daily! And reccomend to everyone!

Rated 2 out of 5 by BummedConsumer Worked well, while it lasted
Overall, Im disappointed with this Bissell product. After about 3 days, one of the belts broke. Didnt expect such a poorly made product from Bissell! Really wished it didnt break, as it picked up kitty litter and cat hair with ease during the first days of its life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kakai This product has outstanding features.
I really enjoyed using this product because it was economical and compact. It did an outstanding job and the battery life is fantastic. I recommend it to anyone that has a small area to vacuum.

I bought my first Bissel sweeper after moving into my new home 3 years ago. I love it. It is easy to use. My son loves it too. He likes helping around the house with it. I just bought a second on. It is a housewarming gift. Thanks Bissel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mattman Good sweeper with a poor design
I bought this same model sweeper about 3 years ago and it broke in about 2 months. It had in addition to a roller brush, 2 corner brushes which rotated when the sweeper was pushed back and forth. These brushes are powered by 2 belts which had actually come off. Bissell replaced the first sweeper. Anyway, the replacement stopped working and after purchasing some cheaper models from other manufacturers my wife bought the same model sweeper AGAIN and again the belt came off making it impossible to push. Bissell is making good on this one too but I doubt if the replacement will fare much better. I would NOT recommend this sweeper. Leaving off the 2 rotating brushes would make this product last longer and do a better job. I must add that Bissell stands behind its products!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cat Owner in TN My hair dryer has more power :(
This is my very 1st sweeper, and I wouldn't complain if I had only paid $9.99 or even $19.99 for this sweeper, because that's all it's worth. You have to, seriously, have to clean all 4 wheels and the rotating brushes after EVERY use; I see why they stop rolling after a few months.
I admit it picks up loose cat hair (woohoo!); however, I need something that can also pick up cat litter outside the litter box. This only picked up half the litter crumbs. Albeit, it will work for a quick pickier-upper if I have company suddenly on their way, but I will not replace it with another one, once it stops working.
It barely cleaned my flat throw rug by the back door. Plus, I have "floating" hard wood floors in my non-wet rooms; sadly, it could not suck up all the dirt in between the cracks where the boards have slipped apart and have spaces. This is something I hoped this machine could do.
Oh well, trial and error. I confess, I was happier with a heavy bulky vacuum cleaner with more suction power, but I gave it a whirl!

My sister in law had this sweeper and it worked great so I bought one also. I used it for a few months and then it wouldn't push anymore. The wheels stuck or something. I contacted Bissell and they immediately sent me a new one. Thank goodness. I have COPD and can not use a broom anymore but can use the sweeper. I love it and love the customer service with Bissell.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frances Stopped Dead After 5 Weeks
I bought in on August 19, 2014 at Wal Mart. It stopped dead on September 26, 2014. Charged it. Press the button. Nothing.
While it was working it cleaned very well but they have to make it last more than 5 weeks. Very disappointed.

Loved this cordless but the last three I bought had problems. The wheel stops spinning and had to have someone take it apart to fix it. Don't understand how the same thing could happen three time???

Rated 3 out of 5 by katypete Love the sweeper when it works!
Ok I love this sweeper BUT It needs to be re-engineered. I get 6 months approximately and then the wheels stop and it makes an awful loud noise. Bissell did replace it. But then 6 months later same thing. I tossed in the corner and said forget it. BUT it was a tool I loved to use daily to just sweep up quickly daily in between busting out my big vacuum. It's been 3 weeks and I hate not having one. The broom doesn't cut it! So I thought I'd call Bissell and see if the problem has been fixed. Of course I'm out of warranty so they offered 10% off and free shipping. I was told this model is newer and hopefully won't have same issues. I loved using mine and miss having something cordless that I'll take a chance. If it fails I'll get another under warranty so I'll have a year to try again and hope it works and hopefully were good or I'll have to find another brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bud Great for quick clean up
This works great for quick clean ups and easy to use, but as others have mentioned the wheel belts tend to get bound up and wheel won't turn, They did send a replacement, and I took the other one apart and removed both belts that turn the little side sweepers. Not a easy job, but will work.

The best money I have spent in a long time. This is excellent on low pile carpet and throw rugs. It saves me from carrying my vacuum from downstairs to upstairs. Does a great job. Even picks up cat hair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Coonie Left Wheel
After only using this sweeper about 4 times, the left wheel stop working. You can't push the darn thing across the floor for nothing. I'm thinking it's the belt--after reading so many other bad reviews stating the same thing. I bought both my girls one too, so it's just a matter of time before their sweepers stop working too. So we have three of these LEMONS. I will be calling Bissell tomorrow and I sure hope they don't give me a hard time about it, because I'm ready for them. DO NOT BUY THIS SWEEPER. FAULTY WHEELS AND BELTS. CERTAINLY NOT WORTH YOUR TIME AD MONEY.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sterphone Product failed after a month
I don't understand. Why can't a company make a product that last for years any more? I think companies only give a 1 year warranty because they don't expect the product to last longer than that. After one month of using the Perfect Sweep Turbo the left wheel is now stuck. What a huge disappointment. This is my first Bissell product I purchased and I am not sure if I will purchase any more. Maybe they should spend less money on their commercials and spend it in product longevity and testing.

Glad I ordered this sweeper. Very quiet and picks up like a champ. My dog is short haired and doesn't shed (yet), but it picks up lots of unseen hair, my wife's. Most of the house is tile with area rugs, works great on both.
