This vacuum has great suction power. It gets even the small particles of dirt. The cord retraction is more of a convenience than I thought it would be. One touch and it is done. The lights that show if the carpet is clean is an added bonus. I didn't think much of the lights at first, it really does indicate that the carpet is clean and to move on. Best vacuum I owned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bob999 Everything I wanted was good except where the Hepa filter goes.
I usually don't do reviews but I couldn't help myself on this one. The engineers on this placement of the filter blew it, no pun intended. I was exited to get my new vacuum, put it together and fired it up. It probably wasn't 2 minutes and boom the cover and filter blew off. I called Bissell and was told that maybe it was dirty. I said but mam I just put it together, I then tried electrical tape and it lasted about 15 minutes. Today I bought gorilla tape and it worked for most of the cleaning. They sent a 7 filter when it says on the machine a 9. They are sending a 9 and hopefully that will work. Otherwise they can have it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kyle This vacuum does a good job
The automatic cord rewind makes it easy to not have to wind a cord up after every use. The filters get dirty easy with a one pet household. Regularly cleaning the filters and vacuum has made it last a few years now. For the price this vacuum does a good job, better than the average vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maryndovey An excellent product
I like everything about this product, the filtration system, washable filters, lightweight, powerful motor. So why did I see this at Tuesday Morning? With such an excellent product, I sure hope it's not being discontinued.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeff 61 I love this vacuum- but the stupid HEPA filter won't stay on!
My wife and I placed this vacuum on our wedding registry, and we were very excited when we received it. We also have an older, smaller model Bissell that we like so much, we still have it.
We love this vacuum because it works really well at cleaning the floor- and that's why we asked for it! The suction is excellent and the retractable cord is a really cool feature. Despite our satisfaction with these 2 features, there are 2 complaints that we have.
1. The HEPA Media Filter and filter cover just started randomly blowing off of the machine last week! It's the weirdest thing- every time we turn the machine on, it flies off. We taped it down, but the force from the air was powerful enough to blow through the tape. Annoying!
2. The attachments are also pretty disappointing. Once you attach them to the hose, the suction is absolutely awful. We use our older model Bissell to handle couches curtains, and blinds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TS Overheated and singed the carpet
I bought my unit about 3 years ago. It has worked great until yesterday when after cleaning the steps I noticed a single "dark" mark on a few steps. Upon further review the carpet has been singed. No smell, just carpet marked up. It is not through the carpet though, possibly because it was moved from step to step.
The carpet was scheduled to be replaced this Spring and I guess I will be looking to do so sooner now.
Other than that a very good machine. My daughter has one too and I am warning her to watch out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eddie55 Impressed
I just picked up a used/rebuilt unit and so far, I'm impressed. I got it from my local vac repair shop as I just wanted something easy, simple and inexpensive for my lower-level basement/office (where my wife prefers I NOT use her expensive Simplicity vac.#. After trying it out, she now wants the Bissell upstairs! I had just vacuumed with the Dirt Devil that quit on me, and the Bissell picked up so much more. The little Turbo Brush tool hits the stairs like nothing else can. I've learned a lot about 'bagless' when I was shopping for more expensive brands, and I know that bagless vacs are not as well sealed, so I get that, but it is easy to see how you're doing and its easy to keep emply/clean all the time without a dirt-bag hanging out in your closet between changes. I love the retractable cord and another reviewer said they didn't like the location of it #too low#, which he has a point. However, I just loop it over the hose hook toward the top. No big deal. I do have to get my hands on the little 'multi-tool' brush though, as it was missing from my used one, which is otherwise immaculate.
