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.
Summary: This vacuum seemed great at first. After a while it lost suction and the filters, several foam type which get dirty and need to be cleaned frequently, are not easy to remove without getting your hands and vacuum itself dirty. This is a dirty job and suction still isn't too good.
Excerpt: We purchased this vacuum cleaner about 2 years ago and the motor is about ready to die on us. We've made sure to keep the filters clean and empty the caniseter regularly but it just isn't holding up as well as we expected.
Summary: The suction is great but moving it is a pain in the butt when it is on and you're actually vaccuming. Pushing it forward is probably the worst. I've had it for a few weeks now and today I almost got so frustrated with it not wanting to move properly that I wanted to just break it in half.
Summary: Let me start by saying that this vacuum starts off like a champ. It's efficient, cleans well, has a plethora of tools, and is the most amazing vacuum cleaner at an amazing price. Unfortunately, the honeymoon is now over.
Summary: I spent a lot of time researching vacuums and decided that we would buy this. I purchased it about 4 months ago. I realize that if I had purchased a $400 vacuum I probably wouldn't have these issue, but we can't afford that.
Summary: After reading a few reviews, I decided to pull the trigger on this model. Like most of the reviewers have stated it was an easy and straight forward setup/assembly process. However, after the first couple of uses, which were great, the vacuum began to show some issues.
