Rated 5 out of 5 by LtRipleyLastSurvivorOfTheNostromo Wasn't expecting what I got with how much I paid.
So here we are. I honestly never thought I would be writing a review about a vacuum. But this vacuum... this vacuum is too good not to.
We needed a new vacuum because our old one finally bit the dust *cough* dirt devil *cough cough*. We are moving into a home with no carpet in 3 months so we didn't really want to spend a lot on a vacuum. We purchased this thinking it would just be "OK" but boy were we wrong. You should have seen how much dust and dirt was in our carpet! And our carpet looked clean beforehand! super gross right? AND this vacuum is so light. Crazy light. It just zooms around the house. But seriously, this vacuum is great. I will never purchase another brand besides Bissell from here on out. Thanks for helping keep my house clean Bissell :') Truly yours xoxo

Rated 5 out of 5 by Browlan LOVING THIS MACHINE!!
I've only owned my PowerForce Helix Bagless 12B1 for a few weeks now and have used it three times, but for the price, you just can't beat it! I have hardwood floors, area rugs, and tile in my kitchen and bath. This baby does it all! I use this machine when I do my weekly, entire house vacuuming/cleaning. I have a Bissell PetEdge for small areas of non-carpeted flooring where our dog and cat leave their hair and I use it as needed in between my weekly whole-house vacuuming. I highly recommend both machines....I love, love, love the PetEdge and have owned it for about two years now.....never had any problems with it! I really like using both machines because they're light weight, easy to use and easy to maintain. The only improvement I would make on my PowerForce Helix Bagless machine would be a longer hose for reaching behind and above cleaning needs. But as I said for such a reasonable price you just can't beat these machines....they do everything the much more expensive machines do!

Rated 2 out of 5 by eancloud Too loud fake hose short cord
Yes it has good suction & it's lightweight. However, its very loud, the cord is very short and the hose is fake, it does NOT stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joann 130 Best ever!
The first time I used this vacuum I could not believe the dirt, dust & debris it picked up. I was just trying it out, had already vacuumed the previous day. I though my carpet was clean when I started out, it was not. It is an amazing machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Prowriter Excellent!
I have to admit that this vacuum is fabulous! House cleaning is boring, but this little machine makes you look forward to cleaning. The suction is very strong, the machine is light, and you will be amazed at how much dirt gets sucked out of your carpet. I LOVE the corner tool. I almost wish I had a bigger version of it, but then it would be too heavy for me. My only critique is that the cord and hose are too short. Oh well, that's what extension cords are for. Great work Bissell! P.S. And the price is right!

We had Kirby salesmen at our house a couple weeks ago and this vacuum works just as good as their top product. More than adequate for the price. Love that its bagless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by D56 Great product!
I just purchased and used for the first time. I have a dog who sheds occasionally and it picks up her hair just beautifully along with all the other stuff. Very lightweight. I could use just two fingers to push it.I would highly recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigBadJohn69 Best vacuum for the money
This is one of the best vacuum cleaners that I've owned so far. It replaced another brand of vacuum which I only had for a month and that one was literally a piece of junk. The Bissell PowerForce Helix Bagless 12B1 vacuum has great cleaning power and I love how easy it is to empty the dust cup. I don't end up with dust all over my clothes like I did my other brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by moonstar Can't Believe It...
I purchased the PowerForce Helix Bagless vacuum in July. I couldn't wait to use it. I thought, 'Well I didn't pay much, so I'm not expecting much'. MUCH to my surprise...it's great!!! I really do enjoy this vacuum. It's great on carpets, bare floors, rugs, even upholstery. Believe me, if you don't want to invest a lot of money, or perhaps, with most of America having a rough time, and you really want a great great clean, my advise...GO FOR IT!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by rls1041 works well
I bought this because my very old eureka finally bit the dust. my granddaughter helps with vacing and the Bissell healthy home unit I have is way too bulky and heavy for her to maneuver, it is for me as well. I use the healthy home one once a month because it sucks well but this also does just not quite as good though. this one does well with pet hair too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doe B. Best vaccum for the money!!!
I have been cleaning houses for over 7 years now and I have used many of my customers vacuums, some cheap and some very expensive ones (that tout that they never lose suction! but you can't lose something you never really had in the first place...lol) yet none compare to my Bissell Power Force. It is the only vacuum I ever buy, it will pick up the dirt left behind after using those expensive others and it is a fraction of the cost. I have even sold a lot of the people I work for on them and they have bought themselves one. I will not buy any other vacuum than this EVER! This vacuum lasts a long time under daily use by this housekeeper, and the fact you can wash all the filters keeps it smelling clean for each of my customers as well. When asked about vacuums...I will only ever recommend this Bissell Power Force to anyone for ease of use, cost, suction, ease of use of it hose and attachments, its light weight, ease to clean etc...This is my testimonial from a housekeeper of over 7 years who uses this vacuum daily! It is worth every penny of it's low cost!

Love it. I was using my Rainbow, but it is too bulky to use all the time. I like my Bissel to use as often as I want then use the rainbow once every two or three months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jazzy13 I Love it !
It's so light weight and easy to assemble., I had one before this on same brand but it was so heavy that half way through my cleaning I had to take a break, But the price was reasonable and being light weight is a plus. Thank you Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gene Would recommend to anyone!!!
I am very happy with the Bissell PowerForce I just purchased. It was very easy to put together and once I used it on my rugs - well the job was great. It really does the job superbly. Oh and lets not forget the "no filters feature." This is a huge plus - all you have to do is just pour the 'dirt' out and screw back on and go on your way. How convenient is that! All in all, I am very happy. Bissell has done it again! This model is very efficient, convenient and best of all affordable. Hats off to Bissell.

I have had my vacuum for a couple of months and love it. However I can't get it to turn on. I have cleaned everything out including the undercarriage and nothing. Glad I bought the warranty

Rated 1 out of 5 by mb Very disgusted
I bought this vacuum on 6/27/12 and now it is completely burnt up. I thought a vacuum should last more than 1 year.
Maybe I expected too much. Will never buy your brand again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dotty So far so good.
Haven't had trouble with the brush yet. That is the best news. It does pick up pet hairs, etc. I have been very happy with the results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jellylevimom broke twice
The roller brush seized up twice and burnt out the bearings. Bissell replaced the roller brush the first time but told me I would have to pay the second time. It would have cost more than a new vacuum. I just trashed it. I will not buy a Bissell again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kim Its Ok
I love Bissell and will only by Bissell vacuums for my home, but this one just doesnt make the cut. I used it one time and boxed it up. It does ok on carpet but only scatters the dirt on my wood and tile floors. I will say that I exchanged it for another Bissell that is absolutely amazing. It costs a little more but was well worth the extra cash.
