good

 

I got this vacuum as a gift and was a little skeptical at first. I have used it on laminate and vinyl as well as carpet and have been pleased with its performance. I have had it almost a year and have not had any major problems with it. One thing I do ...

Good Vac, Great Price

 

This vac is awesome at picking up whatever is on the floor. Pet hair, cat litter, even the occasional penny dime nickel! My carpet feels so clean and fresh after we're done vacuuming. Adding a touch of carpet powder makes my carpet feel like it was ...

Price, durability, onboard attachments

Canister is a bit small-has to be emptied frequently

Design flaw keeps if from being really great

 

As of the writing of this review, my wife and I have been in our new house for about 10 months. The house we had previously had very little carpet so we didn't need a great vacuum. The house we have now has almost 3200 square feet of carpet. That much ...

Great suction, long cord, low price, no bags to empty

Gets clogged way to easy and requires partial disassembly to clean it.

Kind of iffy about this vac

 

My vacuum just died and I was in the market for a new one, I've heard good things about Bissell and this vac was on sale. It was easy to assemble, is very powerful, has great suction (better than my recently deceased Kirby), handy on board tools and a ...

Very powerful, great suction. Pre-motor & Hepa filter. Nice on-board tools. Long power cord.

Brush doesn't stop, blows dust when using hose. Tippy. Exhausts downward which blows dust around.

Bissell Velocity Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

 

About 6 months ago, coinciding with the slow and torturous death of my Hoover vacuum, I read a Consumer Reports article that gave a glowing account of the Bissell Velocity, saying that it could suck up a million pounds of pet hair per minute. ...

inexpensive, great suction, picks up cat hair, lots of tools, ergonomic, no bags

tips over easily, need to empty canister often

A Great Vacuum At A Great Price!!!

 

I have to admit that I wasn't expecting on doing research for a new vacuum. Our old one was a Dirt Devil bagless vacuum, and worked pretty well. We had it for 3 years, but my wife mentioned the fact that she hated how heavy it was. Of course, me being ...

Lightweight, Cute (to some), Powerful Suction, Easy to Use.

Tips over too easily and power chord can be cumbersome.

Consumer review by:

Great vacuum with excellent suction power

 

This is a great vacuum that gets the job done. I have tile floors and rugs, and the suction power is simply excellent. The cord is long which is great, since I do not have to keep changing from the cord from outlet to outlet, as I clean around the...

Excellent suction power, gets the job done, bag less.

No retractable cord, very noisy and it takes in everything on its way.

To Keep or Not to Keep?

 

Update: It doesn't tip as badly as I thought it did: I previously wrote that the machine would tip over easily when used with attachments. I have since discovered that if the hose is hooked under the lower hose clip, it will allow me to pull out the ...

Cleans carpets well ; edge clean is effective ; turbo brush is powerful ; great for stairs

Spits sand on bare floors ; handle is heavy ; the cup is messy to empty

Wavering on the Bissell Velocity

 

Great suction that only requires going over an area once.

Not all pieces could be attached to the vacuum. High-pitched noise.
