Rated 2 out of 5 by shotgunmomma Not what I was expecting or hoping for!
I bought this about 4 months ago. It had the features I was looking for, and the price was great. I have a Bissell floor cleaner that is great, so I figured it would be too. That is not what it was, far from it. I spent more time cleaning the vacuum filters, cups, and hoses out than I spent vacuuming my floors. The pet hair and dirt get tangled up inside the top part, and inside the filter area more then it gets inside the actual cup itself. The cord does not always want to wind up, and I had to keep pulling it out and pushing the button until it would wind all the way up. The suction on this vacuum, even with brand new filters, is no where near good enough for picking up after pets, and kids. My last vacuum lasted 8 years and was purchased from a second had store. It was not a Bissell, and was great for pet hair, and kids. I went out and purchased one of those brand new models of another brand, and I gave this to my Grandfather who has mostly hardwood floors, and no pets. He finds it useful. Even at the price I paid for this, it was not worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ktlee Absolutely the worst!
This is my first review ever. This product has made me so frustrated that I felt a review was necessary. I would not recommend this vacuum cleaner to my worst enemy. First, the bag-less feature sounded great, but I did not realize that this vacuum has three different areas that collect dirt. I can vacuum one bedroom and a hallway and two of the three collection areas are full. Emptying these bins leads only to dust and dirt everywhere since you have to pull the dirt out of one area by pulling in a downward direction. After one vacuuming, one of the filters is full and can only be cleaned by washing it, then waiting for it to dry to use the vacuum again. Secondly, I've had to replace the belt at least four times within the last year. Thirdly, unless the collection areas are empty, dust and dirt flies out as you are vacuuming.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bear Works great except
The exhaust grille cover keeps blowing off when turned on. This is the second unit I got ,the first did the same thing the first time I turned it on so I returned it and got another. This second unit same thing only the grille stayed on about a week. Other than that it works fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kennijopaksi Was hoping for better results
This is the second bissell I bought even bought the same one this time, but unfortunately it doesn't deposit the dirt in the bag less container it never leaves the pleated filter area so I am constantly emptying the little tiny reservoir of all the cat hair and dirt that is on my floor. Very disappointed.
