Rated 2 out of 5 by mel87 Disappointed
I have had a few Bissell vacuums and have always been pleased. This one disappointed. For being a pet vacuum like my previous Bissell, it does not preform like I hoped. It clogs up constantly and spits dust out the bottom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Like clean floors Great suction but belt fell off 1st use
The suction is great, had a Hoover for 1 week, broke on the 2nd time we turned it on, tried this tonight and worked great other than the belt came off after 25 minutes of using it. My husband and to take 7 or 8 screws off to get to the belt, took him another 4 minutes to get the belt attached again, if it continues to come off I will take it back to the store for my money back. I'm not strong enough to replace the belt myself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Not worth the time to buy DISAPPOINTED...DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME
Brand new sweeper and after 10 minutes use, the belt on the comes off. Don't waste your time on this machine. Others have had the same issue with the belt coming off. One person wrote it takes an hour to put back on and it's come of 3 times within a 2 week period. It's brand new...shouldn't be happening. POOR workmanship.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kate Did not last long
My husband and I received this vacuum for our wedding. When it worked it did well, however after 7 months of use (1-2 times a week) the brush bearing melted down and the vacuum is no longer usable. We cleaned the brush out after every use and are extremely disappointed. This piece is not covered by warranty so we have to pay to have it replaced. I'd recommend a different product so you do not have to replace parts twice a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdf35114 great cleaning and power for price
We had a Dyson for last few years and it had literally fallen apart- great suction but hose cracked, so many plastic parts broke off - very disappointed we spent so much money and couldn't rationalize spending that much again. We own other Bissell items so bought this model based on reviews. So glad we did! Great power and love the removable canister for stairs. This was a 3rd of the price of a Dyson and so far this is such a better value overall. We will never stray from the Bissell brand again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MBrazeal FANTASTIC VACUUM
had owned 2 Bissell's before, wore the first one out and the second was good except it had an open dump container and with pet hair it would let it fly out when dumping...so I wanted a sealed container that would hold the pet hair till I opened the bottom dump latch. So it was between this PowerGlide or a Shark Navigator vacuum.. and I had the Shark in my hands after about 2hrs studying the features... but I knew how our last Bissell's performed and went back and picked this PowerGlide up instead.. besides (Bissell... We mean Clean!)... and got it home and wow what a fantastic vac.. and watched some youtube video's and saw just how well it did against the very Shark vacuum I was looking at... this Bissell beat it hands down. Keep up the great work on the vacuums.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 54Marie Strap falls off first time used
I am so dissapointed. This is an expensive vacuum and after using it for 30 minutes the strap fell off, on very short carpet. Then again after 3 minutes of use. My husband has to reposition the strap. I am not strong enough to do it. How can I return this horrible machine? Or is there a way to prevent this. For the price, I should not need to be patient!

Rated 3 out of 5 by annemarie Not bad
I purchased this product because I have two cats that stay at home, and I needed a good vacuum to help get rid of the hair.
The suction is good, quite powerful but the vacuum itself is a bit hard to use. The hose is very rigid, and I actually have to lift the lift off part of the vacuum very high to reach higher places.
Also, after using this product since June 2014, I just put the lift off part back in it's socket, and now it won't suck from the bottom anymore. I'm stuck with only the hose sucking in air.
Is there something I can do about this?
And finally, I do have to clean up the brushes at the bottom after pretty much every use otherwise it all gets tangled. (mostly because of my long hair that ends up on the floor somehow)
It's not a bad product, but it's not as good as I had expected.
