Good vacuum but not durable!

Michael N Hajiro, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Have had this vacuum for 3+ years and use it 2-3 times a week. Works great- good suction, easy to clean and convenient. Unfortunately durability is an issue- the plastic stops that prevent the vacuum from laying flat broke- they were molded in very weakly with thin plastic and the vacuum now hangs whenever its carried. Also the handle cracked recently and will eventually break off rendering the unit useless. I expect a vacuum cleaner to last a little longer...

Light, Compact, Easy

Patricia J. Page, Amazon

  • Summary: This compact vacuum is easy to maneuver, and gets in smaller places than the average upright. It does a good job of picking up dirt and is reliable. It is great for efficiency apartments. I liked using it, and so did my mother.

The perfect light bagless vacuum!

Maria Rodas "M. Rodas", Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: Dont be fooled by this lightweight, bagless vacuum. It's all you'll need to clean your house regardless of the size (thought we only use it on carpets and not wood floor). The only backdraw is that the attachments have to be carried on a bag (included with the vacuum), not a big deal as its not heave nor big. I just bought a second one for my brother and I'm sure his wife will love it as much as I do. Great value, good quality and the best FIVE years guarantee.

Not worth it.. and does not even come with the flex wand included..!!!!

  • Summary: This one is going back.. I vacuum almost every day.. and must say my Bissel pet sm vac works better than this one and is far more agile and easy to use. And was only $60. This one is a clunker.. not as light as it states 17 # unless, is 24# or scale and is very top heavy. It sends to make odd sqeeking noises like plastic cracking when you move it around the floor. Its suction is not good at all. The sound is as much as any other vacuum I have used.

I would not purchase this vacuum again.

Amazon Customer "KingDingbat", Amazon
24 April 2012
  • Summary: I've had this vacuum for 2 years, and I would not purchase it again. It gets the job done, but there are several areas which are a disappointment, and I would not recommend it. The first, was shortly after I got the vacuum, the rubber coating on the handle started peeling off. Not a big deal, but it's annoying. The joints, where all the accessories join together with the hose are plastic and split easily.

Poor piece of engineering and design

Ray_O_Le'gist, Amazon
7 August 2011
  • Summary: The machince has good vacuum strength and is lightweight as advertised but that is about all the good I can say about it. Nobody won any prizes for this this design and if they did they should give them back. Not having the tools on board is one mildly frustrating feature of the design. The machine does not handle changes in surface well requiring a good deal of push n pull when you go from floor to carpet.

Super vacuum for the price

docgobbler, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • Summary: Our old Hoover broke so, after much internet searching, we decided on this Bissell. We're pleasantly surprised at how much better it does in picking up dirt from the carpet. Much stronger suction and it doesn't seem as loud. The stair attachment is great, as is the auto leveling and the ability to shut off the brushes when we're on our hardwood floors.We have no problem with the attachments being in the bag as we don't use them that often and it's no problem to grab the...

Great Vacuum!

Liz, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: The Bissell Prolite is exactly what I wanted in a vacuum for my small condo. It is light weight but has really powerful suction. I use it on my hard floors and carpet and it performs equally well on both. Plenty of great attachments for cleaning any area of your home. I don't mind the attachments in a separate bag, just keep them in the closet and grab whatever one you need. Awesome vacuum for the price.

Awesome! however...

HockeyNutt, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great vaccumm its so light weight and easily manuverable. It picks up great! We live in a small space so I would not recommend it for big house's or lots of rooms. I do not mind the attachments in the bag. The hose however gets a little getting used to. It emptys really easily. And pick up on the hardwood is very nice.

  • Summary: powerful, light, sturdy, easy functions, QUIET, i have been using it daily since i recieved it, and i am addicted!! i dont mind the attachments being in a separate bag at all. Steps attachment is awesome. This vacuum has pulled up so much dirt from my carpet, pulled a ton of spilled kitty litter out of berber carpet. auto leveling is awesome, works great on hard surface with brushes turned off.
