Rated 1 out of 5 by Rebekah Not a good vacuum for arthritis and fibromyalgia
While this vacuum does have good suction it is very heavy and cumbersome to use. With my arthritis, fibromyalgia and back problems I am worn out after one room. The cord rewind while being a handy feature is located at base of handle and the cord is forever getting under the wheels and beater bar. This is the worst vacuum I've ever had as far as it's bulkyness and the sheer weight of it. The turbo brush attachment keeps stopping when trying to use on stairs or furniture. If your young and have stamina this is your vacuum if not don't purchase it you'll regret it as I do every time I have to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cassandra Perfect for my hardwood and carpeted floors
I purchased this after great dissatisfaction with my "name brand competitor" vacuum which never really cleaned my hardwood floors very well. I was shocked at how much this picked up! The suction is great and it gets everything from the dog hair to the sand from the kids play box. The cleaning wand is great, I can reach everything from behind the couch to the cobwebs at the ceiling. I love the rewind cord, saves so much time. I would buy this again in a heartbeat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Belleview I and II Not all bad
I do like how the motor power pick up the dirt. The sides of a room need to use the hose attachment, so that is a bit time consuming. My concern is that in three months, will this still have the same power as when it was out of the box. I have found with most vacuums this type, they lose their power fast and have to work harder to clean. This is with regular cleaning of the vacuum. I do not feel it is that light weight but does get the job done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Debbie72 Great product
This is a very good cleaner, lightweight, powerfull suction pickup, and versatile. Nice convenience of auto rewind for cord. Only negative and complaint is that the cord is waaaay too short! Just not comparable to previous cleaners I have had. Will take some getting used too. Still like the cleaner so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean OCD This Vacuum is Quiet, has a headlight, LOVE IT!!!
This Vacuum is the best of all the vacuums, and different manufactures I purchased from over decades. The features, performance, ease in use, quality, the PRICE! I spent over $200 on my last vacuum, that I was led to believe was worth the money. The Rewind PowerHelix has more features, and the quality of this vacuum, and 3 year warranty, I promise, you will be in agreement with me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cele73 This vacuum is great.
We purchased this vacuum a couple of weeks ago. It has great suction. We had a Hoover and this one has 10 times more suction then the Hoover. The first time we used it, we had to empty the cannister 5 times. We couldn't belive all the fuzz and dirt we got out of the carpet. We have a 1500 sq. ft. home.

I purchased this vacuum for my mother last christmas and we have had no problems with it whatsoever. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a vacuum. The attachment makes it easy to clean the steps and hard to reach corners. We just love it thank you Bissel.

My last vacuum was very heavy. I was ready for lightweight and bagless. And the Bissell is but they don't tell you that one of the the filters is replaceable, until you read the book. The handle needs a hook on the upper handle to keep the cord out the way while sweeping. And although the cord is long, you still need to carry the sweeper down the stairs or it will tip over. It has good suction.
