Rated 1 out of 5 by SC67 Back breaking
I just bought this Bissell Steam and Vac thinking it would be a lot better than the Shark steam and vac I use to have. This thing would break your back trying to push it across a hardwood floor.
The good part was it kept steaming far longer than the Shark did, but the the heavier weight and difficulty in maneuvering it outweighs the good. I hope I can find another Shark.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MimiZ Very bad odor??
I just bought a Bissell Symphony on sale at Target a few weeks ago. The pros are that I love the ease of handling and the way I can vacuum and steam clean at the same time, especially valuable to me because we have a 3400 SF home that is all ceramic tile! However, I am EXTREMELY disappointed with the very bad odor that it keeps giving off. It should NOT be the water filter, since it is a brand new machine. I have used only filtered water in the tank and I have changed the pads frequently and washed them according to directions. The smell seems to be in the plastic pad holder? What in the world, short of returning the machine, can I do? I did try washing the attachment in dishwashing soap and drying it. No help. This will ruin my experience with this otherwise great machine. One of the main reasons I wanted a steam cleaner was for the fresh smell they leave. Please help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ronda21 Love Bissell Symphony
Love my Bissell Symphony steam mop! It is so easy to keep my laminate floors clean and the fresh discs make my home smell like I just cleaned even if I just used it to steam my husband's sneaker marks from the foyer. The steamer is not heavy and cumbersome to use. Highly recommend this product for anyone with laminate or hardwood flooring in their home.

This sounded perfect for moving to a house at the beach with tile floors and pets. What could be better than vacuuming and mopping at once? I have found the Symphony to be very disappointing. No matter how often I change the pads, the floors streak. The vacuum hardly sucks up pet hair or dirt. It mostly blows it around. I have one area rug and have tried to use only the vacuum feature. It requires herculean strength to push it across the rug-with or without the attachment. I continue to use it hoping it will get better, but sadly it doesn't perform as I had hoped.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Littemissmuffin Great at first then stopped working
I had high hopes for this bissell after reading all the reviews but on my third try using it the steam stopped and all it did was click all the time. Returning it to store. I should have known better to get a steam vac as I have always just bought steam cleaners who do fine. Too much equipment on this and heavy to push around as well. I wish it would have worked, but now I am back to buying just a steam cleaner. It really cleans the floor well and dries instantly as it cleans. A big plus if it works. Never even got to register it for the warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liz50 Awesome product
We already have the shampoo carpet Bissell. Saw the ad on TV and realize we are very satisfied with it so why not try the Symphony. I am so happy we did. I use to vacuum my floors then use a wet mop. So much time consuming especially with two Shepherds. I love it so far and hope to get a lot out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jewls62 Bissell vac & clean
Now you come out with one that does both. I own BISSELL VACUUM, the best in suction, light weight, (great for neck/shoulder medical problems) easy canister removal for easy under cleaning.
The 2nd best suck vacuumed owned; leave name out; but to heavy n loud..BISSELL #1 all the way.
