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.

After using this vacuum for awhile I really like it. The best part for me is that you can unhook it from its base and carry it up the stairs, clean the windows of all the lady bugs,stinkbugs and flies that are attracted to that side of the house. It is two vacuums in one - full size and mini-vacuum for those small jobs where you do not need to lug the full size around. the swivel head is also great. The dog and cat do not like it but who cares.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cummicm LEFT HANDERS BEWARE
This vacuum is very awkward to use for a left hander. I don't think I've ever used a product that I couldn't make work until now. Not only is the on/off switch on the wrong side, but the base tilt is in a hard to reach area. On future models, I would like to see it moved to a central location, making it easy to use for both left/right hand users. One last feature I do not care for is the hose. It only comes with one crevice tool, which does not give it the length it needs to perform simple tasks.
This vacuum does have good suction and the swivel base is a plus but I have a hard time recommending it based on the above comments.
