We bought this to replace our Dyson, and I was hopeful based on the reviews I read. While the vacuum is certainly powerful, I actually find it difficult to push on our low pile rugs. I also think it is noisy, and the extension tube is not easy to maneuver and is not particularly long. On the positive side, the on board tools are very good, and it is easy to put together and empty the canister. For the money, I would rate it as good.
I bought this vac for my son and daughter in law. In my experience, you can pay a lot of money for a vacuum that really under performs it's price and reputation. This vac is well priced and has gotten rave reviews from my son, who I is generally a snob in theses matters. I would definitely recommend it.
The vacuum is light and easy to move around. The way the belt is set up on the brush bar enables the machine to get close to the wall from either side. It does such a good job that you really should empty the container after doing a room or two, but that is easy. Do wish it had a light.
I bought this because Consumer Reports gave it high marks for suction and pet hair. I have 2 staircases plus rugs rather than wall to wall, so am particular about being able to carry the vacuum up and down, and going from carpet to floor and back without chewing up carpet fringes. So far so good. I do like the easy release bin for emptying. My only reluctance in buying and now using is the length of the extension I can get on the wand: would have preferred one that telescopes much further for top corners, ceiling fans, etc. This is generally a shortcoming with vacuums so this one isn't worse than others. Quick delivery as always.
I wanted a small, relatively inexpensive vacuum for my studio apartment. I always like to buy products well reviewed on Consumer Reports and this one wasn't listed, but they had excellent reviews of similar Bissell CleanView model vacuums so I thought I'd give this model a shot. It's a great value. It digs much deeper and as a result picks up way more dirt and dust than my old vacuum. I'm very happy with this purchase.
