Rated 5 out of 5 by renae Works well
Glad I bought this vacuum. It picks up well and is very compact. It is also easy to empty the container when it gets fulll. The only negative is that it can get kind of loud, but it's worth it because my carpet has never looked better.

I purchased this appliance when my other vacuum cleaner broke. To say the least, it is a waste of money. The hose does not work, PERIOD, and the belt broke the first time I used it. I have cleaned the vacuum and checked for clogs and everything is all good. It being lightweight must have come with a price because this vacuum cleaner is completely useless. More time should have been spent on developing an appliance that actually works as it is advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CollieGirl This product works amazingly!
I thought for the price I paid for my new PowerForce Compact Vacuum I would get something that barely worked, but this little guy is awesome! I have two pets, a cat and a dog, and it cleaned my carpets spotlessly, and worked very well on my upholstery. I must say, I am pleasantly surprised and extremely pleased with this purchase. Highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cassieella Just what I needed !
I have a small two bedroom town house with stairs and this is the perfect vacuum for it. It picks up the dirt messes my son makes and even then some. I love the hose and tools that come attached, just wish the hose was a little bit longer. Its also light enough that I can vacuum my stairs and not have to lug a HUGE vacuum up them. Also I love the color, I found it on sale at walmart and it was the last HOT PINK one there !

Just picked this up today. I have a small studio with only half carpet so i wasn't looking for some billion dollar device. Within five minutes of turning it on, it was already full!! It did an amazing job at cleaning my carpet and it makes me wonder if the apartment complex ever vacuumed before i moved in.....

My wife and I have joint pain,I have a very bad back,that makes this machine a dream! Our house is 950 square feet, single story.This vac is well made and you can tell it came from a qulity concerned factory. The clear bowl lets, you see when it is full. This is important because if you let it over fill you will lose power.That is other good thing,the fillters are easy to change,so you can maintain full power. The fillter below the collector bowl, must be kept clean or the vac will loose power. The easy thing is the foam wrap comes with the fillter and the fillter is easy to change. I would recomend this machine for any lite house work. I wouldn't be afraid to do a heavy carpet cleaning though the collection bowl may fill more than once. I was also impressed with the suction on the hose.I hadn't cleaned behind the refrigerator for 2yrs and the dust bunnys were huge and sticky.This vac pulled the out with no proplem,even the crevice tool worked!
Anyone that needs a lite vac that will work this machine is it! Small apartment to small house(a big house perhaps)This vac is just the trick if you don't want to have sore back from hauling a heavy Vac around or up stairs.Esay to work with and on if the need arises,you won't go wrong with this vac!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eva2013 So handy
I first borrowed the Spot Bot from a friend and decided I had to have one of my own, it is so convenient and I am able to use it in my car too! The steam and cleaning product makes your cleaned area smell so nice. This is one of my favorite product purchases!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Flyinirish Lost suction within 30 min of FIRST use!
I simply can't believe it but it's true! Just bought this vacuum cleaner today for my 1,400 sq. ft. house which is only about 900 sf of carpet of carpet. So the first 15-20 min. was great and I'm thinking "WOW - nice suction and NO mess to dump the cup" unlike my Eureka which had cyclone filter inside dirt canister that was AWFUL to clean every time I had to dump the cup!. I have a *very* short shag cut carpet throughout and cream-colored berber in bedroom. I get to the berber and notice that vacuum cleaner is just pushing the debris around on the carpet. Pulled the hose off to feel suction and NOTHING. Turned it over and brush was spinning, nothing stuck, clogged, etc. Just no suction. And that's all it's doing now so it's BACK to the store to dump it off and get a Dirt Devil, which has always been a great product for me!. This is an AWFUL, CHEAPLY-MADE product!!! Unbelievable!!!

I personally enjoy shopping for the best deals on a strong vacuum cleaning any day.
I also vacuum 3 times a week, so a strong vacuum cleaning with all the attachments that comes with it seems to last much longer than any other vacuum I had!
Which includes the dirt devil vacuum cleaners. Last year I had to relied on a dirt devil cause at that time it was in my price range... But when you are trying to budged your saving when you think you are getting the deal.

I've owned Bissell products my entire life and generally stick to the brand for their consistent quality. I was recently at Wal-Mart shopping around for a light-weight vacuum and saw this one being advertised for fairly cheap. I took it home and was astounded by its power- it gets suction comparable to much heavier duty machines. It's a breeze to clean and use and has worked its way into my favorite vacuum cleaner.

Rated 2 out of 5 by chrissy Very unhappy
At first I was very happy b/c it picked up well, However at this point im very frustrated and Im very upset about the product. I dont have many rooms with carpet and wanted something light and easy. I thought this was goin to be a great vacuum for my home. HOwever i had for about a month and the belt broke already. I tried replacing and it keeps overheating and breaking the belt everytime i fix and turn on to use. I lost my receipt and cant take it back to walmart and Im willing to use if this can be fixed immediately some how. But As for now , im completely unhappy and NOT satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by duck it was good for the carpets while i had it
I bought this three weeks ago but could not fit the dirt holder back on. I put it on a work bench to get it at eye level and as I picked it up it slipped out of my hands, it hit the garage floor and the shaft of the handle and wheels etc all broke. It was not the fault of the vacumn and I went straight out and bought the next grade up. power force helix. I always buy Bissell products, they are very good value

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tangled Need longer electrical cord
The suction is great! However the electrical needs to be about 3 feet longer. I can't even vacuum my whole bedroom withouth replugging into another outlet. I will probably not get another one of these for that very reason.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Customer1234 The Vaccum was Great, BUT..
The Vacuum was great until my wife mistakenly vacuum a tiny piece of bone the dog left on the floor. All of sudden the noise change and then followed my smoked/burnt smell and it lost its suction power. This happened a week after we bought it from Wall-mart. We change it for something stronger but not a Bissell product.
i will recommend it but don't try to vacuum a tiny bone or object if you lost your receipt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Joey Carpets Belt issue
This vacuum picks up well and is maneuverable. The major problem is that the belt is always over-heating and breaking. The metal rod that the belt connects to is metal and it heats up very quickly.

i am truly impressed with this vacuum i have an all white american bull dog who sheds like crazy. This vacuum has more than exceeded my expectations. I use it once a day for at least 20 minutes and it picks up every bit of fur. I do recommend this to anyone, it may be small but cleans like a full size vacuum. Thank you bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolea Powerful and light
I am elderly and have a very hard time using the normal vacuum cleaner. This one is just right for me. Very light-weight and a lot of suction. The only problem that I have had with this product is that I didn't get the hose put firmly in place after using the tools and the filter got really dirty, but I have purchased a new one and am perfectly happy again.
I had a great experience when inquiring about my problem on the website.

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.

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.

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.
