Rated 4 out of 5 by Larry3442 Very Good Vacuum
This unit picked up twice as much as my old vacuum. I had to empty the tub and brush clean the foam filter half way through my vacuuming. The one problem I do have with it is the pleated filter, under the foam filter, takes a couple of days to dry after rinsing clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MRSSTAX Super powerful
Got aggravated with my super-expensive piece of junk Kirby and went out and bought the first vacuum I could find... it was this one.... we are SO pleased. It is very powerful and clean-up is a snap. Would purchase again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Delberta This product is easy to use
I like this product because of the easy empty canister and the on/off button is where I can get to it. It is light and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by larry superior product for the price
had another vacumn for 18 years, bought a bissell and didnt realize the good cleaning I have missed all those years. paid twice as much for the other model than the bissell, worth the money and a great product. Thank you bissell for making me a believer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Larry8777 The best vac we've ever owned
We bought our place in 1994 and a new Hoover as well. Maint. was not a problem with the Hoover, just bought bags over the time frame of 1994 to 2012 when we bought our Bissell. We didn't know what we were missing by not getting the Bissell much sooner. The cleaning power from the Hoover to the Bissell does not compare in any manner. The power of the Bissell is truly amazing. $56 is a bargan, Compare that to $134 for the Hoover in 1994. Thank you Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobbo outstanding
WE Recently purchased this vaccum to replace our Royal Vaccum of some 15 + years.....This is the best clean we have had on our rugs in a very long time....The maintenance on it is a little more than the Royal but the power this vac has compare to the Royal is unbelieveable. So the extra time to keep the cups clean and the filters is well worth the amount of dust and fur we pick up....We have a Golden Retreiver and she does have alot of hair.....Thanks Bissell...P.S. We also own a steam cleaner and it is also great...Thanks Bissell.....R. Lewis & Wife

Rated 5 out of 5 by mark25 superb suction,affordability and versatile features
i recently purchased this new upright to replace my other lightwieght bagged upright. It was a sinch to put together, only 2 screws for the handle and the rest just snapped together effortlessly. i gave it a little test run on this one tiny section of my carpet and i was astonished at what my other vacuum was missing. Very powerful and very easy to push around, i very much love the stretch hose and on board tools. Overall i am pleased with this vacuum, i certainly beats my bagged lightweight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pam55 higher expectation than this
I have purchased Powerforce bagless cleaners for the last 15 years. I wanted a new vacuum to put the older one downstairs. Paid more for this one than the blue Powerforce thinking it would be better. WRONG! the hose that you pull off to use attachments does not have a handle like the old one--very difficult to grab and then put back on so it doesn't come off while vacuuming. The hose is also stiffer to use with attachments, too. I also prefer the on/off button up higher to turn on with hand rather than foot. Also, this one didn't have headlight like older less expensive model. It was lacking the extra extender bar for reaching higher places with wand. Overall, I would not buy this again. I know the less expensive blue Powerforce is much better. It can't be returned because I used it and it looks dirty, so too bad for me.
