    There are many features this vacuum has that I just love - being bagged is the best of them. I hate cleaning the canister vacuums - I'd always end up dirty and my allergies would flare. Now I don't have that problem at all - the bag is easy to remove and throw away. While some say the bag is small - it is the same size as the one my mother had back in the day. I love the way it doesn't hurt my back to vacuum now - the uprights were killing me. I would have to say the only two things that bother me about this vacuum is there is no power head attachment which would be great for my carpet, and it would have been nice if it was a little higher amp. But overall, I love this vacuum.

    Excellent Vacuum

    This is my third Bissell product. I ordered this on line, feeling quite confident, because of my previous experience with Bissell that I would like it. In my opinion, & I have many years of experience with vacuums since I am 81 is that it is an excellent value, & will give great service. That it has the variable speed ability, making it more versatile to clean different areas was an unexpected surprise. The design was well thought out & executed for ease of use & storage feature. The curved rod mentioned as a drawback in the previous review is very important, for without that you would have a rod sticking straight out like a stick & forcing you to use your hand in a very unnatural way to be able to vacuum . All in all, while it is a new product, I have tested the various features, comparing them to previous canister type products I have owned, & it far excedes the others. I was truly surprised to be able to have so much for such a relatively small amount. Blue ribbon to the Bissell designers.

    As an independent housecleaner, I have been looking for a vacuum just for the sole purpose of cleaning non-carpeted flooring. I use an Oreck for the carpets. While no product is perfect, I did weigh the pros and cons of the reviews and decided to purchase it. I knew that the hose way too short, which I do hope Bissell will pay attention to customer feedback and improve. I have a sturdy, long hose from another vacuum which fits perfect at the end of the curvy black wand. Pros: Excellent suction! 10 stars (if there were!) The quietest vacuum I've ever owned or have heard. Amazing!! 10 stars Price was the cheapest anywhere. 10 stars Happy to see that it came with 5 bags. 10 stars Cons: Please Bissell, this is a great vacuum except for that short hose. Weighing 21 pounds for a bagged canister, I was a little skeptical. It does weigh more than I would like, but then I'm not planning on carrying it a lot. In summary, while no product is perfect, I am very pleased with my purchase as I believe the pros far out weigh the cons.

    I like the portability, the variable suction, the cord retraction, and the bag mount. I prefer bagged vacuums as they are much cleaner, but they are hard to find these days. The only thing that seems awkward is the knob to telescope the rod. It seems like it should go the other way. Happy customer.

    I've had this machine for a while now and I am impressed. So far it's sturdy, powerful, and quiet, worth what I paid. Vacuums should clean dirt and this machine does and goes further to keep the dirt from get back out. Sometimes less is better, in regards to suction that is, the power level can be decreased when necessary. Over the years I've used other Bissell products both for commercial and home use and the quality hasn't changed. The most important thing for me is replacement parts and bissell.com has the covered too. I'm Impressed

    For the money, this is a very nice little vacuum for bare floors but not carpeting. I've only had it for a week, but I've used it enough to know that I like everything about it except for three minor issues. The hose is too short, the crevice tool is way too short, and the curved handle is awkward when trying to use the narrow, triangular dusting/upholstery brush. But these are all common complaints with most inexpensive vacuums. And it is quieter than most vacs, but not as quiet as one of those expensive German vacs.

    This is the best vacuum cleaner I have ever had. The storage compartment for the tools is so convenient. It is easy to maneuver around and the swivel action of the floor attachment makes cleaning a snap. The telescoping wand is a life saver for someone on the shorter side. I can reach higher objects with ease. Changing attachements is very easy. I dont mind vacuuming now. My house is so clean. It is fantactic for cleaning up pet hair (2 dogs an 1 cat). I highly recommend this machine.

    I'd looked for a bagged vacuum -- not easy to locate. Opticlean is a good looking vacuum with relatively good suction. However, because of black on black print in the user's guide, I had to phone for assistance as I couldn't discern the location of the parts as shown. After four times of use, the power cord doesn't completely retract. Not a good track record! Also, separating the wand from the handle can be trying.

    Thank you for your feedback; we're sorry for the trouble. Your comments will be forwarded for possible future changes.

    Purchased the Momentum vacuum a few years ago & I have nothing but praise for its workmanship, price & performance. It's pretty quiet, very powerful, small & easy to get maneuver. I have had other much more expensive vacuums & have never been as satisfied with them as I am with this one. Thanks for this product!

    We replaced the wall to wall carpeting with tile in part of our condo, about 650 square ft. We needed a canister vacuum for cleaning the tile. This unit does a nice job, is quiet, light weight, and very easy to use. The set up was easy and quick. The replacement bags and filters are easy to get from Bissell's web site. Have use it for about 30 days and love it.
