  • Bissell Canister
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this because the upright vacuum cleaners are to heavy for me to work. I also wanted one that used bags. I've had bagless before and they are so messy. I did so much research on canister sets. I like the style and features with the cleaner. I wish it worked better on carpet. I like to "see lines" when I'm vacuum and this unit doesn't do that at all. It does have great suction with the little attachments to reach those tiny places. I'm not saying it doesn't pick up on carpet, I just don't see lines. I really like the adjustable nozzle. I'm tall and that makes it easy to use. I like the auto re-coil with just the touch of a foot. If I had to complain, and it's a big one in my book, it's the listing price. The comparable price was grossly misquoted if you ask me. It was listed with the compare price ***. I looked everywhere for that items from all types of merchants and nobody had it that high a price. It was listed almost every place around the same price as Overstock. I just feel like it was a little misleading. I thought I was "saving so big" and it was about the same as everyone else. I will buy from Overstock again but will do yet more research.

  • If You've Never Tried Bissell . . . You Should!
    Verified Purchase

    If you've never used a canister vac, you should give it a try. The suction is better & storage is easy. In my experience they last a lot longer than uprights. I've tried the other major brands (other than the expensive British brand) & Bissell is superior. You won't regret buying a Bissell. The price is right on this one. Would make a great gift.

  • Great vacuum for the price
    Verified Purchase

    I love this vacuum. It is so quiet I almost thought there was something wrong with it at first. It has good suction and I like the rubbery handle both at the top of the hose and on the handle on the vacuum canister and on the wheels. I would say it is more of a medium size vacuum. I bought it because I can't stand the current one I have that is bagless--yuck! The only downfall with this vacuum is that it is a bit on the heavy side. However, it's a very durable vacuum.

    Verified Purchase

    The product is what I was expected according with the price, I hope that will last for a long time, and that I do not have replace it with another one any time sooner. For now, so far so good.

  • Great vacuum cleaner. Small enough to drag around
    Verified Purchase

    We have a HUGE Dyson for an upright but it is to hard for me to tear down to use on hard wood floor and do upper wall or window blinds cleaning. I really like mine. It's the second one I've purchased.
