Rated 1 out of 5 by Mike1250 Not worth the money
I bought this PowerGlide Pet Vacuum 1044 four months ago and I am very disappointed. I had a Bissell before and it did okay and lasted me a few years. Since I couldn't afford a more expensive brand, I thought that another Bissell would be worth the money. You would think that Bissell would improve their products as years go by, but that is not the case with this one. First, it is poorly designed. When you put the handle in the fully reclined position to vacuum under furniture, that bracket on the back of the machine that holds the extension wand catches on the carpet. An unbelievable design flaw! Second, the hose is too short. If you stretch it too far, the vacuum falls over. Third, there is only one extension wand and it's also too short making this a poor machine for vacuuming curtains. Fourth, whenever the left side of the machine bumps against furniture, the HEPA filter and cover fall off and I have to shut off the machine and replace them. Overall, a very, very poorly designed machine and not worth the money.

When the sweeper I inherited from my mother-in-law finally died I purchased this BISSELL and am very satisfied. I love the bagless feature and the Fabreeze filter! I can't believe how much dirt I am getting out of my carpets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aml2121 OUT PERFORMED THE SHARK!!! GREAT VACUUM
When I moved into my house I spent over 3,000 for a high quality high plush carpet. Within 8 months it started to look matted and dirty. I was using the Shark vacuum and vacuuming at least 4-5 times a week because I have two dogs. I actually had the guy who installed the carpet come look at it because I truly thought it was the quality of the carpet. He suggested I buy a height adjustment vacuum. After reading reviews bought this one and after the FIRST TIME using it my carpet looked refreshed. This vacuum is great and I am going to sell my Shark!

Well, I didn't know how terribly my vacuum cleaner worked until I tried this! Easy to put together, easy to push, not too loud...all the features work! The only con is that the Febreeze filter is a little too stinky for me. Going to look into a non-scent or at least something not so raspberry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaiSeto22 SIMPLY THE BEST
This is simply the best vacuum I have ever used and I am now a senior citizen with two dogs and raising my grandson,so you can just imagine all the dirt and dog hair...plus I have 5 finches who's seeds and feathers add even more challenges in keeping a house clean!! It is not too heavy,strong suction, long cord, excellent functioning tools, easy to empty dirt cup, and I love the Fabreze filter which makes everyting smell so fresh and pleasant. Last but not least, the "Price is Right"!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dandy Handy I'd buy it again...
Great value for the money. I'm hard on vacuums and my kids are worse. I think I'm coming up on a year with NOT one issue. I have two long hair cats and the machine does a great job. No bags to worry about and I'm just now coming online to get a new filter. I'd would most definitely buy it again!

I love Bissell vacuums. I started with the 3 in one vacuum that was great for small space. I recently bought the PowerGlide what was not my first choice but the one I wanted from Bissell was no longer available at the store my fiance and I registered at. So I did not have a lot of time to research what one to get. When we decided that Bissell was the way to go I could not wait to get home and test it out. I recently vacuumed with the 3 in one and was not expecting the results I got. Wow the dirt, hair, and dust this vacuum picked up was mind blowing. Easy to use and not very loud. I am very satisfied with the vacuum and even though it was not the original Bissell I wanted I would not change it. It is a must household item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mr. Mom Great Value!
We purchased this vacuum after comparing it to similar ones at our local warehouse stores. This vacuum had better features, as well as higher reviews on other sites.
We've been using it for several weeks and we're very happy with it. The onboard tools stay in place and are easily accessible when needed. The suction seems very good...much better than our previous "high-end" vacuum usually sold door-to-door.
Although we enjoy the Febreeze filter attached to the unit, I've read reviews elsewhere that people with an over-sensitive sense of smell found the smell to be overwhelming.
Overall, we're very please with the vacuum and would recommend it!
