Rated 4 out of 5 by Ky28 good for price
This vacuum does exactly what I purchased it for at a reasonable price. I use it to vacuum my tile and laminate floors. The suction power is sufficient. I did not give it 5 stars because the attatchments are useless. I use the attatchments from my old vacuum. The cord is also on the short side. I knew the drawbacks before purchasing thanks to others online reviews. I ended up buying what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin/Kim84 Zing Bagless Canister 6489
This vacuum works wonderfully. We bought it for light cleaning including stairs, car, furnature etc. The only 2 things I would change on it, (1) Put on a longer cord. (2) Put the release button for the caister somewhere other than on the handle. The first time of use I accidently touched the button and it came apart it rolled down the stairs. Put it back together and it works fine. Just be careful where you put your hand on the handle. This is a tuff little vacuum with a lot of suction!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike Great suction
The cord could be a bit longer. Love the lightweight style and the cleaning head swivels so it gets the corners. Easy to clean and store. Would like it if the vacuum would have a place to store the brush. By the way, do not purchase the additional brush that is reccomended at check out. It comes with one.
I have a Bissell upright which is equally as good. Both vacuums were great value at a great price. Don't buy a expensive vacuum. The Bissell is just as good for much less money. .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheri15 Great vacuum!
This vacuum does look like a kids toy but has as good suction as my mother in laws Dyson I had been borrowing. Great for hard wood and tile and also for area rugs. Light weight, cord retracts easily, easy to empty.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Heather this vacuum is lightwieght
The vacuum does not pick up the cat hair off the carpet. I have to go over the hair a few times before it picks up. The extension keeps coming apart and I push it one as tight as I can that I'm affraid I might break the nozzel. I do like it that it is lightweight but should have a bigger nozzel or better suction. It takes a lot longer to vacuum where as before with the dirt devil upright it took me 2 minutes to vacuum my small apartment. The price and size were right for the Bizzell but now I wish I bought another dirt Devil.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JohnnysGirl Terrible
Bought this vacuum less than a year ago. The only good thing about it is that it's small and convenient to store. The filter on the back won't stay on, it has a second filter that can only be cleaned by tearing the machine apart. It leaves dirt behind. The wands conveniently come apart for storage, but they often fall apart in the middle of vacuuming. I would not recommend this product.

A woman that cleans houses recommended it to me. I bought it and liked it so much I bought another for my daughter who is pregnant with her third son!! Small but powerful. I love the retractible cord. Canister empties easily too. Great for bathrooms steps and small jobs. Highly recommend it!

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJRN Perfect for multiple surfaces
This is the best small vac I have ever had. It is light weight but has incredible suction. Super easy to use on the stairs and for the car. Cleans like a much larger, bulkier machine. Beats my neighbor's Dyson...she listed it on Craigs List and bought this one after borrowing mine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mom072301 hate the brush
this machine has great suction but, I have a very hard time to using the brush on the rugs. I really have to push the brush very hard to get the dirt up. The wheels don't roll very well on the brush. I say I feel like I am rolling around a shopping cart with a bad wheel... Other than that it works great.

Love this vacuum! Use it weekly and I'm surprised at how much it actually sucks up. And I don't have to worry about finding bags for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deenie55 Vacuum has superior suction
I bought this appliance to replace an old 1970's canister that finally went kaput which I used for my tile floors. Because of the superior suction I can also use it on carpets. I also like the small size and am happy I won't have to buy bags. I would have liked a longer hose because I am tall and need to bend down a bit. Also a longer cord would be great as I have to unplug and replug in some rooms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Loudog Affordable and powerful
I decided to buy this vacuum because it was small enough to take on the bus, also I was very pleased with the price point. It has exceptional suction power and I like the retractable cord.my only complaint would be the carpet/floor attach. It trends to swivel 360 degrees when you don't want out to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Small Pint Not quite what I had in mind
The product itself is cute..it could be better. The floor/carpet attachment needs more looking into by Bissell. The actually size of the attachment does not work well in carpet flooring staircase..to wide, does not move easily on either side of flooring. I bought it because of its size and thought that maybe I would be working smarter instead of harder. No carpet elsewhere in the house, except for the staircase. I do sadly regret buying it - its not something I look forward to taking out every week. I should of gone with my instinct and bought the battery volt hand-held vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamela47 I love the size and the convenience of the "cord away"
This small machine has the power of a much larger model. It is easy to use. The suction is great! We have two Maine Coon cats, long hair, and two dogs so daily clean up is a routine.
I do wish the cord was a little longer and the motor a little quieter. I would recommend this canister to anyone.

I purchased this vacuum for our RV. It is possible the best value for the price anywhere. The vacuum is powerful and never loses suction. It stores away nicely and has every attachment you can use. I have tried several vacuums in the RV and this one beats them all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adoptedby5 Good product for the price
This is a good product for the price. I originally bought it because I needed a small, light weight vacuum to clean my planter shelves & ceiling fans. I needed something with a big, sturdy handle that I could hold easily while going up & down a very tall ladder.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that it had a floor/carpet attachment. Works well on tile floors, base boards and cobwebs in the corners, but I would not use this on a regular basis on my carpets. Even though they are a very short nap, the cat hair needs a vac with a beater brush.
Like others have mentioned, the cord seemed a bit short - but really, if you want a longer cord - get a cordless. Also, as others have mentioned, it is quite loud - but . . . . the suction on this is fantastic! I used it on my Tiffany style lamps & they look marvelous. They have not been that clean since I got them! I also, used them on my blinds and the little flip out brush is the perfect size. Speaking of the suction, I really appreciate the air flow regulator. At times when I use this vac, I find it necessary to decrease the suction since it is so strong.
True, this vac does not have a lot of attachments, but I have a couple of attachments that were still around from a prior had held vac & these attachments fit great.
Last, but not least - terrific for getting under the beds & couches, although it would be helpful if the handle/hose had a little bit of a swivel capability.
In my opinion: this is a good vac for the price. It is terrific for small jobs. If you are looking for a lightweight vac to do carpets - choose another that is made specifically for carpets.
I would definitely recommend this vacuum. Thank you Bissell for a good product!

This product is truly a waste of money. Poor suction does not pick up much. I subsequently bought a competitor's vacuum, and threw the Bissell away.
