nope nope nope

Elizabeth Dodd, Amazon

  • 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.

Don't waste your money

Phyllis, Amazon

  • 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. Also, it has floor setting, but beater bar does not stop so not sure if this is hard on my wood floors. We have a dog and the room smells like dirt/dog when you vacuum. Take a pass on this one.

One trick pony

  • Summary: Better for a small home with simple tasks. Probably not for home with kids and pets.
  • Pros: Cheap and can be found in nearly any store (including my local grocery store!)
  • Cons: Bush never stops spinning. Too many filters. Hose too short.

Good sucking but that's it.

Eca, Amazon
30 September 2010
  • 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. I have the receipt still as well as the packaging and am thinking of taking it back.

The honeymoon is over (or "my wife was right")

Craig Maloney, Amazon
3 July 2010
  • 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. My wife and I decided to replace our bagged vacuum cleaner with a new vacuum cleaner. I was hell-bent on replacing it with something bagless, since that seemed like a more efficient way to clean the house. Plus, I hated changing bags.

Was so hopeful...

K. T. CHI, Amazon
30 December 2009
  • 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. Here are some that fall under my complaint list: - Whenever I had to empty the dust bin, dust fell out all over the vacuum and back on to the floor -- even when I was very careful to try to slowly &...
