Rated 5 out of 5 by Tina Wonderful product!
This is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever owned! It will pick up the smallest amount of dust and dirt. You can vacuum with one of the competitors and then go over the exact same area, and the Bissell will pick up the dirt that the competitors left behind! I love my Bissell Powerforce Helix turbo!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by katlea81 Extremely Impressed!
I just bought and used this vacuum today. I had owned a Dyson for 7 years and it quit so I took a chance on the Power Force Helix. My oh my! This Vacuum has more suction and it even picked up cat litter without spitting it out the back. I couldn't believe how easy it was to use and the power this vacuum has. This is a great buy especially of you have pets. I was so happy to see all of the dirt in the canister after my first cleaning! This is my first Bissell product and I am in love!!!!

It is the worst vacuum I ever owned and I have had many. The wheels are plastic so they don't roll like a vacuum made with quality parts.. It picks up dirt just fine, but try cleaning out all the canister and filter parts and you could have vacuumed your house all over again. It is a mess. I do not have kids so there isn't much dirt to pick up but after I vacuum I have to take the whole vacuum outside so dirt doesn't fall all over the clean floor.
I wish I had been warned but that' s life. If you didn't buy this yet don't do it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Home Maker 7273 Wow!!!
I bought this vacuum so I didn't have to carry my heavy Dyson down stairs to vacuum my area rugs. It was just a supplement.....but I took it up upstairs to test it out on my white carpet (like a kid with a new toy). I am amazed at what it pulled up that my Dyson left behind! First time use and I had to pull it apart to clean the filter. So people, I own 5 vacuums from Rainbow, Dyson, Miele....which I spent thousands combined and they don't compare to this and I service my vacuums yearly. So with the cost of this vacuum I could say....go ahead- you'll be impressed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by shpn_girl Worst vacuum EVER
I normally do not write reviews but this one had to be done. This vacuum was purchased for my small business and I have had it for approximately two months. The hardest thing this vacuum needed to pick up was a little sand or small gravel pieces from getting tracked in from the parking lot. I have low pile carpet, commercial grade floor mats and tile, and it did not matter what setting it was on it still worked the same, terribly. Starting with the blow out wind where it would sort of pick up and then spit it out all over is just a waste of time. Even though each time the canister would be emptied and the filters checked for anything causing it not to work correctly. There is nothing positive I can say about this vacuum. It's so bad that I would drag my home vacuum down about once a week to clean up.
I can't believe anyone would give this vacuum anything more than one star, if I could have gone into the negative stars I would have. So disappointed in the Bissel Powerforce Helix

Rated 1 out of 5 by RileysMom I have loved every Bissell I've owned until this one...this one is like" that other brand" (Terrible!)
I have owned several vacuums over the years, and most of them have been Bissells. I have loved every one of them until this one. The last two I had were similar models, similar price and worked GREAT. Granted they only lasted a year or two, but at the time I had a German Shepherd so nothing would have lasted longer than that. I no longer have the GSD so have less hair and dirt to pick up. I expected this vac to work great considering....WRONG! The first time I used it it was spitting dirt out the back! It also blows so much air out the front that it sends papers etc. flying off tables and counters! I am not a "returner" so I kept it and thought maybe something was connected wrong or loose or something...I have since been through the whole vac and not found anything wrong with the set-up. I guess I am stuck with it now until I get a new one. I am just so upset that I can't trust the Bissell name anymore. I didn't even think about what brand to get when I was buying it because, like I said, I have always had good luck with Bissell. I won't make that mistake again. Back to reading reviews before I get a new one.
Bissell, Please consider taking this model off the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kaci Love this Vacuum!!
I have bought several vacuums after doing a lot of research on reviews, specs, etc, and have always been disappointed. This Bissell vacuum, I purchased because my previous vacuum had broken (like all the others,) and I bought it without any prior research because it was a great price. WOW! I am amazed by how well this vacuum works, and what an amazing price!! I wish I had bought this vacuum a long time ago. Does great with cat hair and cat litter, which has been a huge issue with all my prior vacuums. Love it!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by mscott sucks the dirt up and then shoots it out the back.
I would vacuum my wood floor and the dirt I just went over would be sucked up and then shot out the back. It was if I never used the machine. The roller is always turning whether it is for bare floors or carpet and I found that the suction was minimal, did not even suck up my hand.
