cheap is the word thank goodness. The leaver that holds the handle upright always breaks. The hose on top of handle always falls off. There the hose end connects to the tank turns loose. The five floor levels do not work that great. They last about a good year than I buy another one. I usually buy the power force helix model 12b1

I bought this vacuum and thought it was great!! One of the best vacuums I've ever used. But now 6 months later, and constant servicing and cleaning it, I realize I got what I paid for. Very inexpensive, but it works like it! I've been a Bissell girl for a long time, but I think I'm going to have to try a different brand.

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!

This vacuum has suited my 1-bedroom apartment fine. It has good suction, the filter is easy to clean, and the attachment has been great. Overall it's a great vacuum for a great price.

This is a good unit...but the one we bought is only 6 months old and now it's not working. I take it apart and clean it after every use. There is a service center in town, which I didn't think I would need after 6 months of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cleanfreak65 Great product, great price
We have 2 children, 4 cats, a dog and a bird so there is no shortage of hair, dust and feathers in our home. We have had a central vac system but the suction is not great and the power head seems to move the dirt and hair around instead of into the canister. When our oldest daughter moved to an apartment, she bought a Bissell upright vacuum. We were so impressed with the cleaning results, we bought the same model for our home. It is amazing how much deep-down dust it pulls from the carpets and pet hair is no longer a problem. I highly recommend this vacuum.

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!
