Rated 5 out of 5 by Dubh Excellent, for the price.
This is a small, lightweight, plastic vacuum. It's not a premium model, doesn't hold a 55-gallon drum's worth of dirt, doesn't have a motorized carpet head, or a mile-long cord, and it isn't whisper-quiet. If you're looking for those features, you'll need to look at more expensive vacuums.
It does, however, do quite well what it's designed to do. It has remarkable suction -- so much so that I actually have to use the control on the hose to back it off, at times. It's lightweight. It's great for hard-surfaced floors, and works well on rugs and carpets. The dirt-cup is well-designed, and easy to use and to clean. The cord is retractable, and its retractor is easy to operate.
In short, it's a great vacuum for light cleaning of small areas or small apartments. It's not a good choice as the sole vacuum for a large house or a home where the dirt gets ground-into its rugs and carpeting. I recommend it, highly, for what it's been designed to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GT21 Very powerful
This unit has powerful suction. I did not like the attacment it came with so I rigged it for other attachments I had from other unit. I liked retractable cord and wheels. I also like that power button is easily accessible.

I just had hardwood floors installed in my house and my family room is pretty big and the stick vac I was using wasn't picking up the dirt, dog hair, etc. So I was looking everywhere for a small canister vac that had the PROPER brush for hardwoods and I found it!! Could not ask for a better vac. Please Bissell DO NOT EVER DISCONTINUE this vac if and when this one ever dies I will be purchasing another one> I already told a few people also:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by CounTess LOVE LOVE LOVE this machine!
I am a professional cleaner in high end vacation homes in Hawaii and this is the only vacuum I use on tile and hardwood floors.
Amazing suction power and light weight. We use these machines 6 - 8 hours a day and other heavier machines kill us. This one is loved by my staff.
I started with one in February of this year and have since bought 2 more! All three are going strong with lots of wear and tear. Finally getting around to buying new filters and I am please with the price of replacements. I just wish my local Lowe's stocked the filters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by J and M Loved it so much bought two of them for our two houses
Bought one for our 'vacation home' and was so impressed with how easy it was to use and light weight decided to get rid of the 'old' heavy, bulky and not very good vacuums we had in our permanent home. Love both of them equally.

I love love love my Zing! It is lightweight and easy to use and clean. I especially love the little hose attachment that is PERFECT for mini blinds, vents, and crevices!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric astounding -- the best vac ever
I have used many dozens of vacuum cleaners, but this one blows away all competition, regardless of price.
What I want in a vacuum cleaner is the easy ability to clean all surfaces (carpets, floors, furniture-tops, rugs, etc.) without needing to lift the machine or reach for and change cleaner-heads, and without excessive machine-noise; ideally, the machine will be light, and its suction will be powerful but also easily adjustable (so as for the vacuum-head not to cling to floormats, etc.); and the machine will be bagless but also easy to empty the dirt; and it must be durable. Finally, the machine must provide outstanding dollar-value. This machine is stellar on all counts. If it were $500+, then I would not buy it, because I would compromise and get one of its competitors; but this machine was only $50, and so, once I bought one and took it home and learned how to empty the dirt and replace the dirt-canister back into the machine, and satisfied myself that this machine actually is the most exceptional bargain I have ever encountered, I returned to the store and bought another for back-up, because if this perfect vacuum cleaner were ever to become unavailable, I'd be depressed unless I had at least one in storage.
This is the vacuum cleaner I have hoped all my life to find. Thank you, Bissell Zing engineers and company -- you have produced a masterpiece, and at a dirt-cheap price. All I can say in summation is: Wow! There is no rational argument for buying any other.
