Rated 1 out of 5 by jjroller Belts break
I received the vacuum as a gift and while I love the cord and appearance overall, with regards to functionality it is a bitter disappointment. 2nd day - belt broke. Purchased new belts - 4th day another belt broke. Ughh!
Plan to return it - embarrassed to request receipt and threw away box already. Annoyed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by K-Ren Good Product for the Price
I find this vacuum to be great. I have had other brands that cost double the price of this one. They do not compare to the Bissell power groom helix. It has very good suction and light weight. I have told all my friends about this vacuum. LOVE IT

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sarobbi It's ok
I love the Febreeze filter. But I hate the suction tube that clogs up EVERYTIME I use this vacuum. I have to clean it out to get it to pick up everytime I use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jc Stronger suction,and retractable power cord
We have had a few different Bissell bagless vaccums. This one has better suction and I like the retractable cord.
In our previous vacs when winding up the cord it didn't always have enough space to clip the end of the cord,so it stays in place.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dana Sprite Difficult cleaning process after use.
I found cleaning the total system after use to be difficult. When I removed the dirt container and filter cups, dust and dirt fell all over the vacuum and surrounding floor. A big mess. The cups were not particularly full. The upper tank was completely covered with debris (I have cats) and I had to use my hand to remove the collection before I could remove the piece for cleaning. Another big mess, my hands and arms, the vacuum and the surrounding floor. The cleaning process took as much time as I spent vacuuming five rooms and now I have to wait for everything to dry before I can reassemble. I was pleased with the performance of the vacuum but question if I will keep the product because of the cumbersome and sloppy cleaning procedures. I also found it awkward reaching for the electric cord so it would not tangle in the wheels. It would help to have a "hook" to secure the cord when the unit was in use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by johnny2002 MY SECOND BISSELL VAC....
I bought this one to replace my last bissell that lasted me for 12 years! My old one was as every bit a great machine as my new one. I love all the NEW features on my new Bissell Vac. I brag about it to all my friends that have other brands and replace them year after year :-}
I rate my new Bissell KING of the Vacs. Hope this one lasts me another 12 years...ha, ha, ha!

Rated 4 out of 5 by faithclean5112 Great Machine!
We are a church and our senior Pastor came in one morning to find the Bissell Power Groom Helix sitting in front of the door, package unopened. The young woman who does our cleaning uses a Bissell that is similar and was excited to try this one out. I'm not sure what she liked best - the power and suction, the ease of use, the sweet Febreeze smell that is left after use or just the total package. My next new vacuum will be a Bissell based on the quality and workmanship of our new machine here at church.
