Rated 4 out of 5 by schmoeville good features.
Works well. I just do not like the sponge-like filter...it is a hassle to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cowboy This vacuum is "AWESOME"!
After carefully checking out all vacuums on display at store, I found that this vacuum had great features and was not very heavy at all! And the price was great as well! My wife and I have been using this vacuum for about 3 weeks now, and we have 2 dogs and a son. It is VERY powerful, light and easy to use and cleans the carpet and hardwood floors very well. It really can pick up the dirt and ALL the dog hairs very well! My wife loves it as well, and it is very easy to clean the filters and to empty the dirt!! My wife says I made a "GREAT" choice!! And she loves the automatic cord rewind with a touch of a button! I would highly recomend this product to anyone!! Thank you for an "AWESOME" vacuum!!.......P.S. The only thing I was wondering, why it doesn't have a light on the powerhead? A light on it would be nice, but we can do without it! It's still an "AWESOME" vacuum!! I noticed that alot of all the other brands didn't have a light as well? Just wondering why they are all making them mostly without lights on them anymore???

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hudson65 Had Bissell before
Had an older model, something broke something like a shaft. motor ran but no suction. Bought Eureka but was not enough suction to even to get dirt off the floor. Put in closet for yard sale maybe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doc4552 I have both the Proheat pet shampooer & the powergroom
I first purchase the shampooer and was so pleased with its performance that when it came time to purchase a new vacuum there was no need to consider any other products than another Bissell. And as thought my new Bissell vacuum is perfect !! The weight, the power, and it's manuring ability. Yes I'm very pleased with both of my Bissells please keep the excellent performance up!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alan Does the job for me
I've only used it twice so I can't comment on how it holds up with time, but it's exactly what I was looking for - powerful, don't need a bag, attachments that let me clean furniture, stairs, and hard-to-reach places, and a long cord so I can do a whole room without having to unplug and replug. And all that for a great price! Assuming it lasts, you'll be happy with this one too.

The smell of the febreze filter as you are vaccuming is great. Easy to empty. Love the clear tubing so you can see if there is a clog and where it is.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by J21 Awesome Power!
I purchased this vacuum after our other Bissell vacuum finally went. I loved our other vacuum and was hesitant on purchasing a new one. I found this one and LOVE IT! I just used it for the first time today and not only was the price VERY reasonable but it has great suction power. The Febreze filter scent feature is super nice while you are vacuuming and I love the cord rewind feature. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced, very efficient vacuum. Thank you Bissell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Buylamb Plastic parts just cant take heavy use
I guess given whats out there this machine is good. I have found however, that the plastic parts are not able to stand up to any real dirt and grit that animals may bring into the house. The more sandy the grit the easier the plastic parts fail. Metal parts had no such issues. Great hair collector and very easy to clean. I expect this will last about 2 years due to the plastic parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jmo727 Great Vacuum!
I bought this vacuum to replace my old Bissell that I've had for many, many years. I find the suction power to be unlike any vacuum I've had before. It sucked up pet hair out of the carpet that wasn't even visible. I like how the febreeze scent filter fills up the room. It's lighter than my old one. I also like the handle as it has a better feel to it. The cord is shorter than my old one but it is managable.

This is a great vacuum. I like that the cord rewinds into its own compartment and it is the perfect lenght for my applications. It has great suction and I prefer to dump the container versus struggling changing bags. All around great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleased User Good Replacement for Eureka
We bought this vacum to replace a 15 year old Eureka. The dirt pickup was super as compared to the old Eureka. The cord could be longer, but we like the auto rewind function. So far we like the vacum, it works well and provides great suction. I don't mind dumping the dirt container, as I don't have to replace the bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dustbunny Fresh Aroma - Sour Cord!
The suction is great, Fabreeze filter Love it! Short cord! I agree w/other reviews - empting cup is too messy; removing dirt container lets the dust clumps from the top filter fall out and after reloading cup you must vac that area again and "dust/wet wipe your vac"! It's a high maintenance vac after each use. Overall it DOES its job - but it makes me have to do a little extra non-sense cleaning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Big T My 2nd Bissell Vacuum!
Bought this machine because my last vacuum was a similar Bissell Clean View II and with 5 children + my wife and I using it from time to time, it still lasted 7 years. WOW! So my next choice was obvious when it came time to purchase a new one. As others have stated also, the automatic cord rewind and the small power brush for getting pet hair off the furniture are great features. The suction is great and the canisters with easy access filters are wonderful. I am amazed how much dirt and hair is removed from my floors with this machine. However, the 3 negatives are; the power switch is no longer at the top of the handle with quick access, it is now on the lower section which is too low and causes me to have to bend over alot with my bad back. Also, the power cord comes out at the bottom of the handle instead of the top which makes it easier to get tangled up or ran over when vacuuming. Third, the power cord is a little too short. Overall, a great price for what you get.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BaltoJim OK, overall, but could be better.
The suction is nice, and it's easy to empty the dirt container. The container also comes in handy if something was caught up in the vacuum by accident, and needs to be retrieved. The one really bad part that is basically wrong with all vacuum cleaners with a roller bar is that hair gets caught up and tangled on the roller with every vacuum job. Removing all that hair is a job in itself, after the vacuuming is finished. Not long after I purchased this model, I saw an advertisement for a different brand of vacuum that had a very different design which caught long hair in a wide loop, like a skein of yarn. The gathered hair was extremely easy to remove from the rollers. I wish all models had that feature.
