Summary: Very pleased with with this purchase! Not sure why this got bad reviews, but it worked good for me. Got this at Big Lots. It was a remanufactured model but worked well. The only thing I didn't like was the attachments don't fit well onto the vacuum (when you're not using them) but other than worked...
Summary: An interesting machine. The brush picks up debris and redistributes it behind the unit. If you go over it three or four times, it might accidentally kick it up into the bag-less chamber, but that would be sheer luck.
Summary: I don't know why this vac has gotten so many 1 star reviews. Frankly for it's going price now days, which is around $35, it's hard to beat. Sure, it's built kind of cheaply, but it does what it's supposed to do (vacuum) quite well. My only criticisms are.. the cord length.
You don't even get what you paid for with this cheap vacuum

Summary: Purchased this particular vacuum because I have had Bissells in the past and was always pleased with their performance. And since I have a small apartment I thought a compact size would be appropriate. Well "compact" is the only accurate part of the description Extremely noisy.

Summary: I bought this vacuum for my college apartment at the beginning of the school year and it worked great. I cleaned it out at least once a week to make sure it would stay in good working condition. At the beginning of second semester, it just stopped working.

Summary: I have never written a review but this time I MUST! We have been been on a cross country trip in a 35' motor home for almost two months and we have tried various vacuums on the carpeting and floors and then returned them mainly for lack of suction or being too hard to maneuver in tight spaces, etc.
Summary: This vacuum is lightweight, like one of those push popper toys, and just about as effective at cleaning. I should have trusted my instincts and returned it immediately to the store as soon as my husband put it together.
Summary: Love the compact size. It cleans my rugs just as good as my old larger size Bissel. Has a hose for hard to reach places but the attachment is very short. Belts can be replaced, brush does spin though at times it feels hard to push.
Summary: The motor went bad after only two months of use. I called their customer service number and the patient gentleman guided me through the steps of looking at the belts and testing the brush roller. I powered up the Bissell and the brush roller was moving.
Summary: I was a little surprised by some reviewers that couldn't find one good thing to say about this. I wouldn't give it 5 stars, but it certainly deserves more than one or two. First off, we were looking for something that was very light and inexpensive to occasionally clean a RV that we use 3 months out...
