Rated 2 out of 5 by Rewot27 Sounds like a common problem
It works really good but ONLY for the 9 minutes and maybe 30 seconds that the battery lasts. I followed all the instructions, some of them I tried twice but still only get maybe at best a total of 10 minutes of battery life. It says 60 minutes of continuous cleaning, I'd be happy with 30 minutes not the meager 10 minutes I get now. Looks like Bissell has some improvements to make

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stacey Does not charge
I purchased this product yesterday to have something small and quick to use around my wood floors with my two cats. I had it plugged in and when the light turned green indicating it was charged, I tried to use even thought it was under the suggested 24 hours. The roller spun slowly for a couple seconds and stopped. I have since had it plugged for over 24 hours even though the indicator light has been green. I just tried to use and it is still not working even close to full power. I am upset with myself that I already threw away the packaging and doubt I can return. I have not even been able to use this product for it's desired purpose and I am already supremely disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SueB Love my sweeper!
I hate to vacuum but once I got my German Shepherd 9 weeks ago, I use my sweeper every day to pick up his shedding on the carpet in the living room. Every time he shakes really good, which is at least once a day, I have my sweeper going over the entire carpet. I have graduated to the kitchen and the carpet downstairs. I even carried it with me to VA to pick up the nap, dust or what ever you call the first vacuum of a new carpet I had installed in a house I own up there. I have been really pleased with how long it holds a charge, the amount of fur and grit it collects, the light weight to transport up and down stairs, and the ease with which I can empty the canister. I love this baby almost as much as I love my new dog!

Rated 1 out of 5 by auntesugar battery life stinks
I bought this about 3 weeks ago and after letting it charge for 2 full days it finally worked, but after sweeping for 5 minutes the battery was dying and I had to re-charge. I use it everyday and I cant get more than 7 minutes out of it before it has to be re-charged. The first couple times I used it, it picked up everything, but now it picks it up and spits most of it out. It also slows down when on carpet. I am planning on returning it this weekend. Sorry Bissell!

Rated 2 out of 5 by KTuck14 Disappointing
I'm giving this a fair rating because it did pick up pet hair and dirt until after a few uses the brush stopped spinning and made an awful noise like the motor was stuck. Smelled like the motor was burning.

I just purchased this today and after one use it stopped working. It just makes a loud noise like the motor is spinning, but the actual brush part doesn't spin!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Wordetls Just what I was looking for...
I hate to clean! I only do deep cleaning once every month or two & my husband has a big, heavy, clunky Riccar vacuum that I am not allowed to touch. I was looking for a quick easy way to replace my daily broom sweeping after my four dogs & dusty desert mess on my tile floor. I didn't have high expectations when I bought it, but...This works perfect for that for me! Granted, it doesn't get into deep corners & it doesn't pick up large pieces, but for quick pick up of pet hair & light dirt/dust, it works great! I can even get the surface hair off of my carpet. Amazed at how full the container gets each time. I think I've owned this for about three months now and have only had to charge it twice since the initial charge. I use it until it dies and then recharge it. I'll leave the corners & heavy unit with attachments to my husband!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Linds Highly disappointed
I have purchased a number of Bissell products in the past, and currently own several others. However, this sweeper is incredibly disappointing when it comes to performance. I was looking for an electric sweeper that I could pull out for quick mid-week hair/crumb/dirt clean ups. With 2 dogs, 1 toddler and a husband, I need something that is easy to use and works well. This is not it! This sweeper does actually picks up larger things like crumbs or dirt far better than it picks up hair. It does not get very close to the baseboards (especially on the sides) and does not have very good suction. If I hadn't gotten rid of the box already, I would return it. Disappointed I wasted this much money.
