Rated 2 out of 5 by Mech Engineer in Maintenance Pretty good.....if it works.
I have had two of the ProHeat 2x models. One lasted a decent time, but needed constant maintenance. As designed there are a lot of vacuum leaks, so to get the best pick-up of water you have to "tweak" things a bit. I would highly recommended AVOIDING the Bissell or other name brand cleaning solutions at the stores. Go to a professional floor cleaning shop and get a dry slurry product and you will not have to worry about gumming up the nozzles or the heater. The second model I had was a no good. It would constantly stop spraying, and not for the usual reasons of nozzle or heater....although I have never had a heater problem. Incredibly frustrating. Obviously the frequent model changes for this cleaner have been to add "fixes", such as a second solenoid for the solution. Nevertheless, it is just a very poor design / execution of a decent concept. I like the vacuums, but I am done working on these things. My advice is to avoid. If you are still thinking about it, then search "pro-heat 2x repair". You will be inundated with videos and links. Not a good sign.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shari48 LOVE LOVE LOVE this floor cleaner!!!
We love this cleaner. We rented the Rug Doctor about every 2-3 months to clean dirt from our carpets that our dogs would track in. Also, have a new puppy, and we're still in the potty training stage, so she sometimes has a little accident. Takes care of all the dirt and odor just as well, and probably better than the Rug Doctor. Plus we OWN this cleaner!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bum cleaner Totally Disappointed
I purchased this one yr ago and had only used it twice, to find that it was not working. Took it to a licensed dealer/repair facility and told that the casing was warped and it is not repairable! What a waste of money. I can safely say that I'll never buy another Bissell again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terrynk Beats the "pros"! By a mile!!
In this area (Pacific Northwest) there is a company called "Zero Rez" which employs a truck mounted cleaning system that claims zero residue left behind in your carpet. Hence the name. Their prices are ok (during special pricing promotions) and the cleaning was ok as well. But(!) the zero residue concept seems to me just a sales gimick! Within weeks the old traffic patterns and pet stains re-appeared! We were sorely disappointed to say the least. Now it is important to mention here that the carped is only 1 year old.
We bought the ProHeat 2X and are astounded with the results! Cleaning exceeded the work by the pros by far! Now it bears mentioning that I had, and took, the time to carefully and fully clean the traffic pattern areas, and pretreat. The pros have a schedule to keep and can't spend the time. They have to get on to the next customer. I understand this but, inspite of religiously removing shoes before walking on the carpet, the old stains, including the pet stains, returned after the pro job.
it's weeks since using the ProHeat 2X and the carpet looks new still! And, the old stains are gone, gone, gone!
Commercial cleaners have been disappointing to me several times in the past but the ProHeat 2X beats 'em all, easily! I'm absolutely done with the "pros"!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Susie Improved over my previous Bissell Proheat
I can only take your word for it about the microban but that was one of the things that appealed to me. The improvements in this product over the previous one I had are wonderful. Easier to use the tools, easier to carry (although heavier it seems, much more easy to carry up and down the stairs). I am enjoying cleaning the carpets and am appalled at how awful the used water is, so it seems that my new cleaner does a good job. So much easier to clean after use a well. I am a satisfied customer so far

Rated 5 out of 5 by Darshy Ohh, So Clean and Fresh
Used the 2X Healthy home on my family room and two bedrooms downstairs and it was so easy to operate and quickly cleaned the carpets. I was surprised at how fast the carpet was dried and usable again. Every part was so clean and using the Bissell 2X Cleaner (no additional scent) made our carpets and area smell clean. Cleaning the 15 steps from the lower level to the upper level was a breeze. With a husband, 2 cats and lots of company at our lake home this machine is a livesaver for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BILL Cleans really well
This machine does a much better job than the Hoover that I had. The extra row of brushes and the heater really make a difference. It does a fine job.
