Rated 3 out of 5 by Dancer M Hose problems
I really do love my Zing vacuum but the hose fell apart after 1.5 years. The hose and nozzle separated. I've maybe used it about 35 times. Not happy! The replacement hose costs about a third of a new machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lflcreations Perfect for my sewing area!
I needed a small lightweight vacuum to clean my sewing area in between projects. This includes vacuuming my 3 ft high work table. The Zing is perfect!! Lightweight & portable but has a powerful suction. Love the retractable cord. Works wonderfully on hard surfaces. My only con is it doesn't glide smoothly over pile carpet even with the brush in the up position. But that is not really what this little guy was meant to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Collector16 Wonderfull small vacuum
First of all, I would like to explain that I am a collector of vintage vacuum cleaners, It's is a hobby however I typically use modern machines for actual household cleaning. I originally decided on this particular machine because I was looking for a small canister for quick daily cleaning, because although I own plenty of vacuums to chose from, most are rather bulky and a bit overkill for daily pickups. Almost all reviews on the product were positive and the few negative reviews seamed to be from the owner misusing the product. Once I recieved mine I was surprised with the size of the box, and after unpacking all of the parts, I was surprised with the weight and was happy with my choice. First thing that struck me when I turned it on was the noise, this is NOT a quiet vacuum by any means. But the second thing I noticed was the suction, it has plenty to spare which is a good thing again considering the noise level. I feel that the wands, main floorhead, and hose are well made enough, considering the purchace price of the machine. The design of the suction unit itself seams good and everything is easy to access. In use the machine is very stable and has not fallen over once since I have owned it, the floor head works well for both carpets and hard floors and the canister is small enough to be easily carried for cleaning dificult spaces. It easilly brings up most dirt and pet hair quickly and with less effort than most straight suction vacuums. It also gets under furniture well and is easy to maneuver. Once cleaning is done the machine is easy to store. As far as maintenance it is very simple, with no belts or brushes to worry about all there is to do is empty and clean the filters. The main dust bin filter is very solid feeling and is washable along with the screen around the filter, I find I only need to clean the dust bin filter about once a week. There is also a pre motor filter and post motor filter which need much less attention and again both are washable. As with all bagless vacuums, it is fairly messy to empty so keep that in mind if you have allergies. As for downsides, again the noise is very annoying but not the worst I have experienced. The cord is short but that has to be expected in a canister of this size, and I don't mind it. Now for the big one which for me, knocks off one star. Yes, this canister is cheep, I understand this but why no other small cleaning tools? All it comes with is a small crevice tool with a slide out brush the size of a toothbrush and although it works well for what it is, this machine needs another tool. After all aren't canisters used most with the small tools? That's the point of a canister!
Overall, it is a good vac for smaller spaces or as a secondary vac to complement a bigger vac, as long as you can overlook it's flaws. Since purchase I have ordered some extra small tools through a local vac shop from Bissell to use with this machine. I do really like it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PK617 Makes me crazy
The cord is far too short. I am unable to clean one room with out changing plug location at least once but more often twice. It is crazy-making! Also the suction is so powerful that it is difficult to maneuver on area carpets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by extrasharp I love this vacuum, bought a 2nd one for home
I bought my first one for my office and was so impressed that I went to Lowe's and bought another one.
I love it, I use it on the kitchen and dining room floor and around the litter boxes. The suction is amazing. Can't say enough nice things about it.
Easy to clean out also.

Rated 1 out of 5 by unhappyclean very unsatisfied customer
I'm not sure why no one has really posted ANYTHING about how the main attachment falls off constantly when you are vacuuming... carpet or tile.The compactness is great but the vacuum pieces should really lock together. I mean how hard is that to put in a simple design? I could already figure it out in my head in the 2 minutes I wrote this, Bissell... this vacuum and it's design was very poorly made.... It really made me angry the first time I used it. VERY unhappy with this product. I would NEVER recommend this product to anyone trying to get cleaning done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Clean2012 Powerful small vacuum
I love the color and the size of this vacuum. It's just perfect for my small studio. No need to change bag. That's what I'm looking for. Easy to clean. Just open the cup and empty it. It's powerful considering the small size. The only con is the hose is not long enough (I'm 5' 5") so I have to bend a little. Not convenience for someone who has back problem. Overall it's great ! I love it !

Rated 3 out of 5 by cleanfreakmomma too noisy
I have own this product for a year now and so far it is working. This little vacuum fills up fast and it is way too noisy. It is small and works like a toy. It is only good to pick up hair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by i-Gladiator Great vacumm for hard floor but looks low end material
Just bought it off Lowes. I have hardwood floor all over the house except one area rug. It works excellent and very light weight. Very pleased with the performance on hard floor. This is not carpet vacumm although it works as fine.
However, it definitely used low end material. Specially hoses are very thin plastic and don't think it will last. I have owned one from ShopVac and their hoses are much thicker and heavier than this, but they cracked after few years. What you see is what you get. There is no accessories such as a small brush.
I have returned it to Lowes and getting one size upgrade from OptiClean Canister Vacuum for $99 which has a metalic hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitty Sturdy & a great working~
We have had this vaccuum nearly 2 years & it is still going strong! We use it mostly on bare floors but it does fine on carpets too. Very strong motor, picks up allot of things. Filter needs to be changed about every few months ... we have kitties. I would recommend to others.

Very good suction. Quality/price is simply excellent. The only cons for me is a bit short wand (I'm 6'1").

Rated 4 out of 5 by PMK617 Great for the price! Cord is quite short!
Tried to find filters today...didn't know what it was except Zing Bagless! Not there! I really don't want to have to ship. Suction is too strong for carpets but good for tile which is what I wanted. All in all, I'm pretty satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SlimRedhead GREAT Vacuum Cleaner!
I was debating if I should get a canister vacuum cleaner instead of an upright and decided to get the Zing. I'm sure glad I did. I love the suction power, light weight, portability and ease of use. Emptying the filter cup is fast and easy, and I love the fact that I can control the suction power. This is one of the best vacuum cleaners I've had in a long time, and I'm sure glad I went with the Zing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alex Some good some bad
Its quite a powerfully little machine, suction is really good it's compact and very mobile however the wand is VERY flimsy and to short. All in all it's a pretty good little machine but not really good for large carpeted rooms. So ist just ok.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Julie its blue and plastic.
It has plastic everything...and it's very light weight! I love that. I bought this for one purpose only: carrying it up & down my three flights of stairs. I have a normal heavy upright beginning with a "D" but love the Zing's compact but functional way of "zinging" around the house. I get the same suction of this small Zing as I do my yellow upright. I just wish the dirt compartment was larger. I forget how much smaller it is and have to empty it a lot more than my other. BUT all in all great little "ZING"

Rated 5 out of 5 by cleaningfanatic Compact & Powerful
Wonderfully compact yet powerful as a full size vacuum. This vacuum has worked more than efficient for our country home needs. With road dust, winter shoe dirt and small chips from carrying in the wood for our woodstove, this vac' has pulled its weight way beyond the small small price; not to mention the dog hair, It is still going strong.
I love the ease of emptying, the retractable cord, and the choice to switch from bare floors to carpets.
This truly is one fantastic vacuum. When the day comes that this one needs replacing I will purchase the same one again.
Thank you Bissell for another great product.
