I LOVE THIS VACUUM! My mother and brother own different Dyson vacuums and have tried to convince me to buy one. I was reluctant to spend $450+ for a vacuum, but after my Eureka burned up and stopped sucking I nearly purchased a Dyson.

After much research, I decided to try the Bissell Velocity. It has similar features as the Dyson (dual cyclonic action, hepa, on-board tools, etc) but was on sale for $119 - and at that price, I could give it to a friend and replace with a Dyson if I didn't like it.

I thought my house was clean BEFORE I bought this vacuum - boy was I wrong! I had to empty the dirt canister 4 times and my house is only ~1800 square feet. My carpet feels 'fluffier' to my bare feet! I haven't tried it on my bare tile floors yet, but I am extremely satisfied with it's performance on carpet. Will recommend this to everyone I know!

I bought the Bissell Velocity 3950 when my last Bissell's motor blew up (I had had that one for four years). I really like the air filter light that lets you know if you need to change the filter. I'm not very good at doing that (which is why my last one blew up) and this has a nice warning light to remind me.

I LOVE what it does for my carpets. My husband says they have not this good since we moved in. I like in Oklahoma and we have that nasty red clay that gets everywhere. With two kids, my husband and my dog we put good wear on the carpet and this brings it back to life.

I cannot, however, give it a 5 star because it IS NOT A HARD FLOOR CLEANER. If you want something that can do both, this is not the machine to buy. The brush does not turn off when you put it on the "bare floor setting." So it kicks more of the dirt up on your feet than it does suck it in.

Hands down this is a great vacuum for carpet, but I am now in the market for something for my bare floor areas.

I purchased this vacuum at Target for $129.00 after reading reviews on many different vacuums. I have a smaller apartment and a cat who sheds likes crazy! My old vacuum just stopped picking up all the dirt, hair, and cat mess. The first time I used this vacuum after 2-3 days of not vacuuming at all I had to empty the filter 3 times because it picked up so much. My carpets looked great and the extra hose attachments did a great job vacuuming cat hair off my couches. The cord is long and for me thats a plus because I don't have to stop vacuuming and unplug to go into a different room. For me it was easy to assemble and it is on the lighter side. It is top heavy and tips over if you aren't careful but otherwise, I have found no other problems with it.

This is a great vacuum with some serious suction. I only have two minor issues with it.

First, it falls over backwards VERY easily, especially when using the hose. It gets kind of annoying.

Secondly, it doesn't do too great of a job cleaning up dog hair when going parallel to a wall. It leaves a streak of it that could be a problem to clean up if you're vacuuming a narrow path. Not a big deal, just takes some maneuvering and a little more time.

We absolutely love our new Bissell. We had gotten a much cheaper vacuum and it barely did the job, and spit stuff back at us. Within the first day we have already gotten two dumps of the vacuum up off the floor, and haven't even started detailing edges. The assembly was very straight forward, and the vacuum itself is not loud at all. We love the height adjustment for multi-surface cleaning. The carpet is fun to walk on after you clean on the pet-hair setting, it feels like brand new. The cord is a great length, as well as the hose. The vacuum is a little heavy, but it doesn't fall over easily. Great buy!

--- Update 2011 ---
We are not heavy users on the vacuum, maybe once a month or less. After 2 years, it started making funny sounds and smells. We cleaned the belts, replaced the filter and did all trouble-shooting steps. And then it lost its suction. I suppose I shouldn't expect vacuums to be as well made as they used to be, but for the price, I do expect it to last longer than 2 years. We could get it to kind of work, sometimes, but what we need is to know it will work every time it is plugged in. Decided to go for the Dyson, since it has 5 year warranty that they actually cover. Overall, disappointed.

I read a lot of reviews before deciding on this cleaner. I think it was a great choice!

Bought this vacuum at Target. Never had a bagless before and will never go to a bag model again. I have a chow chow and this thing does an excellent job of picking up dog hair. I had a very clean house before I got this vacuum. The first time I used it I was ASTOUNDED by the amount of debris it picked up from my carpet. I had no idea how bad my other vacuum was performing until I used this one. The hose attachment is very nice and long for my stairs but the vacuum tends to tip over when I use it. But that is bound to happen when the vacuum is light weight (I'll trade the light weight for the tipping.) Also, it looks great. I love the colors. VERY GOOD BUY! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I bought this recently (couple of weeks back). I was in total dilemma in deciding between Dyson and Bissel. I had some crazy model of dirt-devil which did nothing (instead of sucking the dirt, it threw the dirt all over the place. I would call this as dirt-friendly and not dirt-devil. The handle broke within 3 months of regular use).

Anyways, I thought of spending 500 bucks for a good vaccum. But after reading various reviews of Bissel, I ended up buying it. So far so good. Oh boy! The carpet looks clean now and everytime I vaccum, it sucks good amount of dirt hiding in the carpet. What a relief!.

However it has few drawbacks. I have used Dyson before. This Bissel is not as quite as it could be. Also, to clean this vaccum, you have to open the holder and dump it. I think by improving the cleaning mechanism, this vaccum would be really good.

As I live in 1100 sqft apartment, I feel this is really good using this vaccum every week.
