Rated 5 out of 5 by bob123456 Very good suction, intuitive design.
Excellent suction. The Brush is smaller than on some other vacs but the suction hole is centered, so you get a lot of concentrated power. The Lift off is neat, of course.
When my Dyson (which wasn't picking up anything even after a thorough dis-assembly and cleaning of the unit) broke when I stepped on the vacuum to recline it, I got this vacuum. I was wary of the low price but was surprised that it blew the Dyson(I had one of the older models, but still) out of the water. Some CONS though: the lid on the dust bin is rather flimsy, so be careful with it and make sure that the center peace is inserted property before slamming it shut. The dust bin is tiny! So if you let your place go and have multiple pets, you'll be emptying it A LOT. Other than that, very impressed with the suction. It picked up a ton of cat hair my old expensive Dyson couldn't.

You will be disgusted with how much dirt it pulls up from your copy on your first use. This vacuum cleaner is definitely worth the money spent, just keep your filters clean and you will be good to go. I've had this vacuum for 3 months and it has not yet lost any suction!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jean Love this vacuum !!!!
I love everything about this vacuum; the ease it which it moves, the width is perfect for getting into smaller places, emptying the dirt cup is a snap, the swivel feature is a plus, the suction is fabulous AND just today I decided to get my manual out and read about cleaning it...I was amazed at how easy it is to take it apart and clean the filters and canister. I have two cats so between the dust from the litter and the cat hair I am always running the vacuum so it is imperative that I be able to clean the filters regularly. This is without a doubt the best vacuum I have ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JT Best Vacuum we have ever had
I don't write product reviews and this is my first. We love this vacuum. We have two dogs and two cats with a lot of fur all over our house. This vacuum is amazing as it picks up everything from the hardwood floors, tile and area rugs. We also use it on our furniture and I have been know to vacuum our duvet cover while it is on the bed. No damage and it picked up all the hair. The power cord is longer than most which allows me to vacuum an entire room and other areas without having to stop. We have three flights of stairs so the lift off aspect of the vacuum is excellent as I can get up and down the stairs with no issue using the hose and nozzle to suck up all the hair. This is very convenient and easy to use. The canister is easy to empty and clean as well as the filters.
We like this product so much that I have bought 4. Two for us and two as gifts.

I was very surprised with the power of this vacuum! It is MUCH more powerful than our 10 year old Kirby. I used the Kirby and double vacuumed an area of carpet four feet by eight feet. Then I went over the same section with the Bissell. The much lighter and far less expensive Bissell picked up more dirt and hair! The Bissell can go from thick rug to tile floors without changing attachments. On thick carpet, the Bissell is very hard to push since it doesn't have a drive, but on short carpet, wood, or tile floors it is easy to use. One problem I did have was when I went to dump the dirt and hair, the drop-down door fell off. I was able to reinstall is, but it took 10 minutes to force it back on. Overall, this is a great vacuum. I'm going to use is MUCH more than the Kirby!!

I am happy with it over all, just wish the wheels rolled smoother. But it does what I wanted it to do!

Wish I had tried it out before I bought it. It has great suction but that is it. I am in a wheelchair it is hard with the hose being so short the vacuum is continually falling on my legs. Really wish it had a brush attachment. Doubt that I will be buying another.
