Summary: I got this vacuum to replace a previous Bissell.... this one seems very weak in comparison. Although it will pick up debris from the surface of the carpet, I'm not convinced it's getting anything deeper down. Even with filters and containers clean, the suction seems very weak. The hose doesn't seem to be fully integrated to the rest of the vacuum.... debris in the hose tends to stay there at the bottom or falls out when you try to hook the end back in the holder.
Same quality as the old bissell's :) Works great :)

Summary: As I always start my reviews, watch who you purchase from!!! some sellers are scams, I personally purchase only sold by amazon items. Look at the details to be happy with your purchase, this vacuum has the handle on the extension wand, it has a light, the handle is made of good plastic and contoured. The quality is in the details, with out these you are getting a "walmart" vacuum that is low quality and will break in a year. The quality continues In the motor, etc.
Summary: I've had this vacuum for a year now and it's been a nightmare. No suction whatsoever. Constantly emptying debris canister and cleaning filter trying to improve suction. Dust flying everywhere. Try to vacuum my floors and it takes at least 5 passes to pick up dirt THEN spits it back out behind me as I'm vacuuming. Attachments are useless. Turbo brush doesn't work. I don't even have pets but this is the worst vacuum I have ever owned.
Summary: Works great and I have not had any issues with it. I've had it for about a year now. Definitely recommend for smaller locations/places. I have a one bedroom apartment and I have to empty and clean the filters after pretty much every vacuum. Granted I only vacuum every couple of weeks. I also have a cat and it has no trouble picking up the cat hair that I couldn't even see prior to using it. I haven't really used the attachments but they all seem functional.
Summary: I have had this vacuum for several years now. It was purchased as a replacement for a Bravo bagging vacuum. Having several pets in the home it takes no time for the collection container to fill with cat hair and dirt. Overall the cleaning ability is impressive. What I failed to realize until after purchasing is that you have to completely take all components of the collection and filtering system off of the vacuum in a location outside the house so you can pull any...
Excerpt: I received this vacuum when I got married almost 5 years ago. I am an avid vacuumer and vaccum atleast once a day. My house has a variety of carpet lengths and this vacuum does great. I love that you can adjust the height for the carpet. I even use it on my hardwood floors just to pick up the big stuff. This vacuum is very easy to empty and the filters are very easy to clean.
Summary: its not the best top of the line...but it works great and the filters are not expensive here online. I get like 2 for $8 and they last a while. We have 2 small rooms , one big room and living room that are carpeted only, and this works just fine. Clean it, change out the filter when needed and you won't be dissapointed.... oh and the cord is super long!
Excerpt: I purchased this vacuum approximately 2 years ago and it is still working great today. I have three young children who continuously are making messes with cereal, snacks, ripped paper, etc. This vacuum has managed to pick up every mess without trouble. I use it on my low rugs, tiled kitchen and bathroom floors, as well as a shaggy rug without any problems. It has never "eaten" any of my rugs like some other vacuums I have had in the past either.
