Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynnie Stopped Working
I bought this vac about 3-4 mo. ago. Worked beautifully until one day it started blowing out the dirt instead of picking it up. I hunted for my receipt for days but couldn't find it. I was going to give it a bad review until I noticed on the right side of the Bissell computer screen it said " contact us if you have issues requiring immediate attention". So I called and explained the situation to the customer rep. Well, she procedded to spend about 20 minutes with me troubleshooting the problem and lo & behold, we fixed it! I am so pleased with the help I got and now my little vac is working just fine. Moral of the story, try customer service first, then complain if you have to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joea78 Bissell Powerforce Compact
This product is great little vacuum. It does pick up a lot of dirt and the suction is great. The only thing I would suggest, is to put a height adjuster, because it is hard to push across the rug. Otherwise great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dot29 Worst Vacuum Ever!
I bought this vacuum back in November, because I needed something to get by with temporarily until I get rid of my carpet. My previous vacuum that was broken and billowing smoke picked up more dirt and cheerios than this vacuum. I vacuum my living room and have barely anything in the cup afterwards, because it didn't pick it up off the floor. Save your money! Find a different vacuum! I wish I could get my money back, because I ended up with a lemon.

Although, I like the lightness of the vacuum and it works pretty good, I was suprised at how hard it was to push.

Rated 4 out of 5 by suzieqstlouismi good at picking up cat hair!
love it but the cord could be a little longer. I also like how easy it is to dump the dust catcher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ahy Becoming a Fan...
I've purchaed cheap vaccums in the past and normally it would last me a few weeks before something breaks down. However, when I bought my Bisell Powerforce for $39 bucks at Wal-Mart, it was just to cover the time being and wait upon me purchasing another good vaccum. Man, was I wrong. I've become an instant fan of this little vaccum the first week. It has great suction power, cleans up thoroughly, easil cleans, and just easy to carry around my home. I was like, oh man, I've just fallen in love with this little vaccum. Now I'm going to test the expensive Bissell vaccums and see how they hold up, but definitely I'm a big fan of Bissell because of my first experience. So far, it's the best value for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Patch55 More power than I expected
Great little vacuum,It picked up dirt I thought I would have to shampoo out.I have been getting by with a Bissell
stick vac(for cat hair)but this sweeper really gets the stuff
the stick vac left behind.The hose could be a little longer
as well as the electric plug,but those are minor as to what
this sweeper cost.I would recommend this sweeper to others.

Love my vacuum. It is so easy to handle. Picks up dirt and pet hair from the hardest to clean rugs. Also took less time with little effort.

My last vacuum was your EasyVac. The PowerForce Compact has a great improvement in suction and is still light weight. The hepa filtration is a good selling point. I think the electric cord should be longer, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cherylann Great vacuum at a great price
This vacuum is great! Lightweight, but has a lot of suction. Love the onboard tools. Love the crevice tool, and the brush is perfect for furniture and drapes. Does a great cleaning job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike Cleans well, is light and efficient.
This machine was easy to assemble, light and also very easy to use. We mostly use use on carpet and it cleans very well. Much lighter than our original upright vacuum, makes this one easier to use with the crevice tools when vacuuming stairs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tam600 Strange white dust
This vacuum picks up well. However, after owning it for a few months the vacuum produces a very large amount of white/gray dust. It has produced so much dust (even after emptying the bin) that I think I will have to replace the vacuum because I am not sure this dust is safe.

My mother in law bought me and my husband this vacume as a house warming gift and i thought for it being so cheap it was gonna be a piece. But i was wrong this vacume works alot better then the one i used to have from kmart. I love it and i love how when i use carpet deoderizer it holds the smell in. Its easy to clean and very Light.

Replaced old sweeper with bags with the power force compact sweeper for my 82 year old mother in law and she loves the light weight and how it picks up dog and cat hair. She also likes that it is bagless and is easy to empty.

I bought this because my old vacuum wore out and it had decent reviews. The first time I tried to clean the filter (the first day, because it wasn't picking anything up), the tabs that hold it in broke. It simply does not pick anything up. It makes a lot of noise and pushes things around the floor, leaving everything behind. Nothing gets past the hose, but it does manage to throw lots of dust in to the air and give my wife asthma attacks. I will be replacing it very soon.

I purchased it 4 months back. So far I've changed the belt 5 times. Finally realized the brush is also not working.
I ended by buying different one

Rated 5 out of 5 by lusty My bissell
I will have to say that this is a very good vaccum. I love bissell. That is the only carpet vaccum I would use. I like this one because my boys can use it and it is easy for them to use. And you can clean it out right after you use it. Love it.

My husband got this little vaccum for me for xmas after i told him months before i didn't want one. Any way i have used it because we gave away my other one. This vaccuum is to small, it doesn't have good suction and the canister keeps falling out, it won't lock in place. I love Bissell products, but this one is their worse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary Ann Mary Ann
This is a great little machine, and it has such a powerful suction. I have a Hoover canister, and this little vac runs circles around the Hoover. I just wish it didn't blow air back out of it when it's running, which sends dust flying in the air. I wish they'd find some way to stop this problem. Other than that, I wouldn't trade it for any sweeper out there. It sure makes the chore of sweeping not a chore anymore. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a deep cleaning machine that don't put you in the poor house to buy it. I also bought my son one for Christmas and he loves it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachel Great Inexpensive Vacuum!
I love this vacuum. I have a small one bedroom apartment and needed a compact vacuum for the carpeted areas and found this while shopping one day a few months ago. It picks up everything! The hose is not very long, but does the job! It's bagless, which is a nice addition. I needed a replacement drive belt, because I vacuumed over my carpeted bath mat and the belt couldn't handle it (I should've known better), but none the less this is an extraodinary little vacuum. I would recommend it to anyone who has a small living space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lia Awesome little vac!!
I own a cleaning business and have used many different vacs over the past 6 years... this little vacuum is durable, easy to clean, and doesn't break my back carrying from house to house. Usually I can only get 3 to 5 months out of a vacuum then the motor burns up. This little vac is 7 months old & still going strong! I have customers that have Dyson's & have taken my little vac to their houses & picked up twice the amount of hair & dirt than the Dyson did!! The ONLY thing that would make this vac close to perfect is a flat stair cleaner!! Thank You Bissell !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ann Best Money Spent
This product cost me approximately $35.00 at local Walmart and is the best investment of money I have made in a long time. Age 78 and most vacums are too 'heavy' for me to use. This one is pretty easy and it REALLY gets up dirt, especially small 'dusty' type fine particles. Love It!!!! I have had it approx 5 months and it is good. I don't use it a lot, live alone, small apt., but for my needs -Wonderful !!!!
