see above in quality. Overall I like it. I would buy it again.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. When I first used the Bissell, I didn't like it as compared to my Hoover Windtunnel. However, after using it several times I have come to appreciate how lightweight and quiet it is as compared to the Hoover. I read another's review that it doesn't transition well from bare floor to carpet. I agree in that you cannot pop it up to go to carpet. However, it does lie flat to go under beds and furniture, which the Hoover did not do. Another review said that the beater bar keeps running even when the vacuum is in the upright position--my beater bar stops when in the upright position. The dirt cup is large enough to vacuum up quite a bit of dog hair without emptying. I am not sure it has the suction of my Hoover, but it does seem to pick up a lot of dust, dirt and hair. It is easier for me to use than my Hoover because it is lightweight, narrower and fits in more places, lies flat to go under the bed. So, I give it a thumb's up and I would buy it again.
