I bought this for little touch-ups in between vacuuming. I was skeptical about whether or not it would satisfy me, but it does a remarkably good job even in picking up our Westie's hair. It transitions from our area rugs to the wood floors without a problem, though it tends not to grab things that get hung up right at carpet's edge. But my ridiculously expensive Bosch canister vac doesn't do very well there either, so not a real issue at all. It gets full enough pretty quickly, and since it works best with empty canisters I found it's worth taking the 5 extra seconds to dump out the crumbs when done. I'm glad I decided to give it a try -- it works better on rugs than my incredibly noisy Shark stick vac, works just as well on floors, and doesn't need to be plugged in...and it's practically silent!
I bought this for spot cleanups since we have two cats and area rugs that show every cat hair and every speck of dirt.I didn't buy it to replace the vacuum, but to keep things decent between cleanings. It works VERY well for that. I clean the rugs, then the wood floors. The brushes pick things up very well (I do have to go over the cat hair a few times). It hangs flat on a broom rack in the garage, empties easily, and the price was right. I can't believe it took me so long to buy this!
The sweeper picks up well and moves easily from floor to carpet. I returned it because it was very difficult to clean the sweeper itself. There are 2 small dust receptacles that cannot be removed from the sweeper. When I tried to empty them, the dust got everywhere. The brushes are nice, but they also can't be removed and so they aren't easily cleaned, either.

I have owned one of these since the 70's and was only replacing it because it looked terrible from all the years of use. It was Harvest Gold and looked like it had been in the war! But, it stilll worked as well as the day I bought it. I hung on to it just in case the new one didn't work as well. Well, it does! I am just thrilled with my new one. Now I'm not embarassed to pull it out in front of company! Oh, and I love OVERSTOCK. They always get me just the right thing at an incredible price and the shipping blows away everyone else with price and speed.
I'm a little obsessive of the floors being clean. Tired of going out to garage and tracking in more dust just to get broom and pan to sweep up little messes each day. Got this and really like it. No cords to wrap and work around. No stooping over for a dust pan and very easy to dump out all the stuff it's picking up! Surprising how much IS being picked up. I dumped the pans on both sides after only a couple of days usage thinking nothing would be in there, only to see a bunch of stuff fall out! :)
This is my second Bissel Natural Sweeper. I loved the first one because it does not need a charger, it stores easily in a small space, it picks up the dirt on 2 different height carpets in my entry hall, and it is easy to dump out into a large wastebasket. But, the first one had a problem at the connection between the long handle and the bottom housing unit. It was a push in attachment that never stayed attached. I called the company and followed their advice, but I could not get it to stay together permanently. So after several years, I read reviews again and saw that the attachment is now "screw in". It works great. It is used almost exclusively in the entrance area; I do not use it for major cleaning.
I wanted the sweeper just to keep my light colored rug,, free of the things the drop in bedroom. I am slightly disabled so It does the job, It is light and I can use it sitting down, just push back and forth easily. It is light which was the main reason I wanted it. Pleased.
I did a lot a research before buying. I checked out other brands, hundreds of reviews, the You Tube videos. I am very happy with this product. It keeps my floors and carpet clean in between serious cleaning with the vacuum. For the price and the convenience its definitely worth it. No batteries, no cords. Easy to empty. Glad I made the purchase.
I used this product at a timeshare recently. It worked so good that I decided to purchase one. I checked Overstock and the exact brand and model were available so I ordered it. I use it often (as does my husband) since we have a cat. The sweeper picks up cat hair off of the area rug as well as working well on our tile floor. It is a great option to dragging the vacuum out everyday. It arrived quickly after ordering. I have always had great service and products from Overstock.

Not really worth the small amount of money. It may work OK on carpets for small pick er uppers, but not hardwood, which is what I wanted.
