Rated 5 out of 5 by Cleveland Pet Lover Awesome
We were looking for a vacuum that was light-weight and quick to grab and clean up the house due to our pets. We have two dogs a Husky and a Rottweiler and anyone who has had a Husky knows they shed bad. We also have three cats. That being said we own a Kirby....best vacuum you could buy ten years ago and should last a lifetime. Well obviously the Kirby wasn't doing it's job. When we purchased the Rewind Clean View Pet Vacuum and used it for the first time, I was amazed how much hair was in our carpets, two days later and I am still getting ton's of hair out of my carpets. Yes the dirt cup is small and it requires frequent dumping but we clean all cups and filters that we can after each use to prolong the life of this unit. I can't say more...if you own pets, BUY THIS VACUUM you will not be sorry and for the price you can't beat it. I only wish I had bought it sooner. This unit is great for cleaning up litter also. I also love the bagless feature and it doesn't leave that pet odor that you get when you have bagged units, that alone is refreshing. Thank you Bissell for creating this great vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lauren The vacuum itself is great...
But the pet hair attachment broke on me the second time I used it. The plastic frame snapped when I wasn't using it vigorously at all. I tried gluing it back together, but the superglue wouldn't hold.
The vacuum is wonderful, though. I was absolutely amazed at the amount of dirt it got out of my carpet. Made me realize how bad my old Hoover was.
Now I can't use the attachment anymore, so that's a bummer. I really liked using that on my couches.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tim design flaw
there is a design flaw with this as i go to the wands part while it picks up everything the tube it sits in when you vac blows it back out and the hose is not long enough,

I have had this vacuum for a couple of years now and I love it! My floors get so clean, even with four pets and a boyfriend who likes to track as much (or more) dirt in as the dog.
I like that almost every part is washable, it is nice to not have to constantly replace disposable pieces.
I only have two negatives with this, otherwise it would have been a 5 star instead of 4 (or 4.5). First, the belt went out after only about 6 months, sooner than any other vacuum I have had. However, this is easily and inexpensively fixed so not that big of a deal. The second thing that I am not a super big fan of is the bagless canister. This is the first bagless vacuum I have had and I do not like that I seem to get dust/dirt everywhere when emptying it which aggravates my dust allergies. I will get a bagged vacuum in future, but if you want a bagless, get this machine!

I have osteoarthritis and when my husband asked me what I thought about this model, I was instantly sold.
1. Retractable power cord
2. Lightness of the unit
3. Ease of use
4. Elimination of bag (and being able to see how full the unit is becoming)
5. Although I don't have pets, I like the pet attachment to use on my furniture.
I've seen a few negative reviews, which I'm sure with all products things can go wrong with ANY brand. I'd just say that one can replace it with a new one, perhaps they just got one bad apple (which doesn't speak for the product as a whole).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lee1126 So far not so good ...
I just recently purchased my first Bissell, and I am not quite sure what my first impression is as well. During my first week of use, my belt just like the one person below here, broke as well. I used it maybe tops 3 times. So I called the 800 number and she says "no problem it's covered, we'll ship you one out today", it's been 9 days #being shipped by Fed X#, and it's yet to arrive. I loved the first 2 times I used it, but that's about it .... the one post said, that this person should take it to a Bissell dealer to be serviced. Why should we take it to a service dealer, why not send us a brand new one, it's what we paid for isn't it, not one that we can use a few times, and then have to send it to a dealer to be serviced. My time and money is valuable .... would I recommend this one to someone else, first use - yes, 3 time, not quite so sure. Please prove me wrong and better the service, as well as the shipping. Seriously a week ?
