Rated 1 out of 5 by JoeTaxPayer VERY DISAPOINTING! makes a horrible horrible high pitched sound when turned on
The vacuum worked great for about the first month, than shortly after that it developed a real high pitched nails on a chalk board ear piercing noise which is unbearable. I make sure I keep up with all the maintenance on this vacuum *cleaning filters etc* and nothing helps which is a real shame because other than a few little problems it is a real nice product. This is the first time I have been disappointed with a Bissell product.

I was disappointed when I found it has no extension piece to help me reach up high to vacuum so I have to get on a ladder to reach up high

Rated 1 out of 5 by T C897 Not for a Pet owner with real Dogs!!!!
Maybe this vacuum is great for people with little dogs, but not for someone like me who has 3 Siberian Huskys and a cat!!!
I like to vacuum everyday, and was a little apprehensive about buying a vacuum without a bag, but I have had these dogs for 9 years tried one when they were puppies and didn't like it but, figured maybe the technology had changed and would give it a shot again. Well, it can't hold up to my household, The febreze filter smells great but after 5 to 10 minutes of vacuuming the door and the filter come flying off! I have had a replacement door sent and that's not the problem, (It's Over Heating)!!! And I can't understand why since I haven't even had the vacuum a month and I empty the cup before it's full and after every time I vacuum I take the cup and the cone and rinse them with soap and water so the vacuum itself is super clean!
In my opinion it just can't stand up to the job of dogs with long hair with out over heating and that's a problem!!!!
Back to a Vacuum with a bag! Never have a problem with them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Summa More bang for your buck
This vacuum has exceeded my expectations for the amount of money we spent on it! We have a German Shepard and a lab/pit mix who are indoor dogs and shed a lot! I bought this vacuum expecting that it would just pick up the dog hair and make cleaning a little quicker for me. I was incredibly suprised at the amount of fine dust and dander that was sucked up from the area rug when I emptied the canister. What's more, when the carpet looked clean, the vacuum had the power to keep sucking more grime out if it that you'd never think was there! The febreeze filter smells amazing and really fills the air. I actually really enjoy vacuuming now. Love love love this vacuum and would deffinatly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MegH I LOVE my Bissell
We had "borrowed" my parents old rug that had lots of dog hair on it (2 labs)... We even made a video lol, any way my Bissell cleaned it right up. However, recently, since we didn't not read ALL of the info provided when we purchased our Bissell we discovered another filter that was EXTREMELY full (completely our fault).... And we're probably going to have to send it off to be fixed ): I'm going to miss my Bissell

picks up okay but the noise is terrible! I would never buy this again. To many hassle, cleaning filters etc. Prefer Hoover and will go back to it.
