Summary: Don't buy it if there is a female in the home since the brush gets jammed with hair ,resulting in belt breakage which happened with me. I replaced it ,now the whole brush assembly is damaged and I have to buy a new vacuum since I can't spend more on replacement parts
Summary: I bought this at Walmart for $40 when my old (and I mean OLD) vacuum died. Note: This is a really cheap vacuum, it is small, it is clunky, it feels cheap and does not look promising out of the box. The cord is a little shorter than normal, and it is loud. However, it does an excellent job getting dirt and grime out of the carpet. Each time I use it I fill the canister. It's not a fabulous, shiny vacuum, but it does the job.
Yes, it's a cheap, little vacuum. It does it's job (so far)

Summary: Basic, little vacuum. No adjustments, it is kind of loud, so far that is the worst part for me. The cord is a bit shorter than my last compact vac, maybe 20ft vs 25ft. It does the job of sucking up dust and dirt (and in my case cat hair) in 1200 square foot mostly hard surface floors with a few area rugs. It has simple attachments to use, hose is stationary at one end, you unhook the hose from the other in and use it alone or with the 2 attachments.
... vacuum is too hard to push across the carpet--feels like it has the wheels locked

Summary: This 'compact vacuum is too hard to push across the carpet--feels like it has the wheels locked! and it has no floor adjustment setting for height! the belt broke after being used for only two weeks since new! and of course WalMart doesn't stock replacement belts! what a hassle. Going to buy another -better one soon!
Summary: For some reason, this vacuum seems to get awful reviews on here. I'm a college student who just moved into his own apartment, and I needed something that was costeffective and simple, and this fits the bill. I'm not a terribly dirty person, and I don't spend much time in my apartment, but this thing does a nice job cleaning carpet (and it even does the thing with the lines to give you the look of a freshly vacuumed carpet!).

Summary: Based on reviews only a few of these machines are not duds. Used on about four rooms, cleaned filter when it stopped sucking and now it wont suck at all. Seems to sound right, I checked all hoses for blockage and appears to be sealed right. It's actually blowing the dirt around. To make sure rotating roller wasn't just trapping dirt I held a feather up to the bottom to check for suction and it actually blew it out. Returning it today.
Summary: I just spent an hour trying to fix this horrible product because I couldn't believe after just 2 months I could not vacuum my 8 x 10 rug. What a waste of money and time. And now my apartment is dirty and gross and I have guests coming over. I want my money back, and I am going to direct the Bissel rep's attention to all of the other terrible comments written. I thought Bissel was a trusted name, but I will never buy their products again.
Summary: This is just terrible! It worked for 2 months and then suddenly stopped suctioning. When I turn it on, the engine works but does not suction at all. Even when it worked, it blow out a lot of dust.
