The main purpose of a vacuum is to suck, and this one DOES NOT. I had to go over and over things that are the easiest to pick up, like fuzz from my slipper socks. My old Bissell sucked it up immediately, this one takes 3 passes. I love so many other things about it. I love the length of the hose, the attachments, the length of the power cord, the carry handle, the light weight, and the width which fits in between furniture. But the horrible thing is, and the reason this will be returned, is Bissell thought they would be clever and let us see the dirt we're picking up before it goes into the bag. Therefore, the dirt goes into the see-through area, but has to be sucked yet again, from that area to the bag. I think this is why it loses so much suction. I've got all the dirt in the see-through bin, and none in the bag. Another thing that is REALLY bad, is the size of the bags. I'm guessing the bag is about 1/3 the size of a size 7 bissell bag (which I had with my last vacuum,) so you can expect to go through the bags quickly, which is not only a hassle, but expensive. The 3rd thing I don't like, is it is pretty darn hard to push. You would think if it's hard to push, it would be getting good suction, but not so. This makes me sad. A stupid gimmick to make it look bagless, takes the purpose of a vacuum away, which is SUCTION.
