Rated 5 out of 5 by Val95605 Great little vacuum
Just got the PowerForce vacuum and I am very pleased. We only have area rugs in our house that need vacuuming, but this gets them clean and removed all the cat hair. It was amazing how much this little vacuum cleaned up in such a small area.

This is the best little vacuum that I have ever owned.
I love the attachments, I love how light it is and best of all I love to finally be able to get my throw rugs cleaned and looking great. I've had battery operated little vacuums and other brands of electric and did not like the job they did. This little vacuum is powerful, easy to clean and a joy to use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by OK It was going so well...
well...I got 1 yr of use out of this. It was good while it lasted. I purchased the belts to replace them and then I noticed that the brush doesn't rotate anymore...that's not right. I put the belt in the right way and when I turned it on it was the sound of burnt rubber (there goes the $2.99 belt). I don't know if I care enough to even take this to someone to fix it...It would probably be cheaper to buy something that will last at least 2 years...

Rated 4 out of 5 by listrib Great vacuum for the price
Moved into my first apartment, and needed a good but cheaper vacuum. This one was great. It's small (which is the point of compact), so it does take a few extra swipes to vacuum one room and I do have to empty it usually a couple times before the whole apartment is cleaned (we have a lot of pet hair), but otherwise I love it. It's strong, it fits perfectly in our small closet, and it's easy to clean and use. Perfect for my apartment's needs. But if I move into a house, i'd probably buy a bigger vacuum.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tiredofit47 Buyer Beware
I bought this vacuum cleaner only 10 months ago from Walmart. The belt broke after only six months and since Walmart didn't carry the belt anymore, I had to special order it directly from Bissell. I bought two of them to save a little on shipping and handling (it still cost almost twice as much than buying it from the store). I just now tried to use it and smoke was coming out of the bottom. Surprise! The belt broke AGAIN! Now, I am down to the last belt. I can say this much, when this belt breaks, I am tossing the vacuum cleaner in the nearest dumpster and going with a different brand!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris A poor purchase
We have an art gallery, so there's not a lot of vacuuming to be done. We assumed this little vacuum would suit our needs. After the first use, we cleaned the filter and hoses only to find that the vacuum had lost all suction. We had followed all of the tips very carefully to make sure the filters and hoses were clean, that the brush was turning and that everything was in place properly. We used this vacuum ONE time before it became useless. We wasted our money. We are extremely disappointed, and just threw it away. It's very frustrating.

Rated 2 out of 5 by VJ Noisy vacuum after a year
Mine worked just fine until a year then it started making lot of noise with less suction. Tried cleaning filters etc without gain. Throwed this and got a new one. Just works fine upto warranty period - no guarantee of working after a year .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe Can't be beat for the price
I moved into a small apartment and needed a vacuum. I only have carpet in the living room and 2 rugs in the bedroom, about 140 sq feet of carpet to vacuum Be aware that the cleaning path on the 23T7-V is only about 11 inches. It is perfect for someone who does not have a lot of carpeted area in their home. If you have a large home with, say, 1200 square feet of carpet, you may want to look at a bigger unit. Also, make sure to clean/wash the filters at the recommended intervals. This unit traps a lot of very fine dust and the foam filter and associated parts must be kept clean to continue to work properly, a job that is quick and simple to do on this model.
