Tip: if it is too hard to push, just turn the height adjustment dial, as it may be too low (especially with higher carpet).

Yet, the wand extensions do not want to stay together or attached to the hose falling apart during use.

I put together a video review of the Bissell Prolite. Here's what you'll see in the video...

1. A review of how easy it is to put the thing together.
2. Basic features.
3. Included attachments and the use of the hand-wand.
4. A demo of the cleaner in-action.
5. How to clean the chamber with 2 clicks.

It really is a great cleaner, because it's quiet, powerful, has a variety of attachments and cleaning options, and more importantly it is SUPER easy to clean.

I hope you enjoy your new Bissell Prolite!

I currently own an Oreck XL and I've just compared this Bissell to the Oreck side-by-side. Here are my overall impressions of the Bissell 17G5, as well as a comparison to the Oreck XL Classic.

Assembly: Putting the Bissell together is a piece of cake and doesn't really even require instructions. Simply slide the top half into the bottom half, secure with two Phillips screws, and you're pretty much ready to go. You do need to plug the hose into the base, but that's quite simple. The total assembly time was less than 5 minutes.

Quality: The Bissell seems to be well-built. I sense that with a little care, it will last for a long time. Comparing it to the Oreck, it's my view that the Oreck's build quality is probably superior. However, Bissell did a nice job with this vacuum and I would expect it to last.

Performance: The Bissell outperforms my Oreck, although the Oreck is also quite good. This Bissell has a 12 amp motor versus my Oreck's 4 amp motor. Don't get me wrong, the Oreck XL is a quality, efficient product, but it's my sense that the Bissell picked up more stuff from the carpet. The Bissell seems to handle non-carpeted floors better due to the self-adjusting feature. The Bissell also offers a hose and attachments that allow you to get into crevices and difficult-to-reach areas that would be tough or impossible for the Oreck to get to.

Value: The Bissell vacuum is considerably cheaper than the Oreck, so I'd consider it the better value.

Weight: The Oreck is the clear winner here. It only weighs about 8 pounds and I'd say that the Bissell 17G5 is roughly 17 pounds or so. The Bissell isn't difficult to use, but the lightweight nature of the Oreck XL is very attractive.

Over the last couple of months, our family has had the opportunity to try out several vacuum cleaners side-by-side in our house and we're starting to get a good feel for what makes a good vac. The main vacs that we've been using are the Bissell 17G5, the Bissell 16N5, and the Dyson DC15.

As far as the Bissell 17G5 vacuum goes, I'd have to say that it is an excellent machine if you are willing to live within its limitations. It actually beats out the larger, more expensive 16N5 in several categories - and really excels in small areas.

Here are the main advantages that we found in the 17G5:
1) The 17G5 is far more maneuverable than the 16N5, which feels clunkier. Actually, the 17G5 is more on the level of the Dyson in this area; although the Dyson is a more powerful vac.
2) The 17G5 has an automatic height adjust for carpet, which the 16N5 is lacking. That actually seems like a surprising omission in the larger vac since it really is a nice feature.
3) For us, the 17G5 is just the perfect size to stash away in a bathroom closet; but the larger 16N5 is just too big for that.

The 17G5 is smaller than either the Dyson or the 16N5, and there is a price for that compact size. Here are the disadvantages that we ran into:
1) The 17G5 has a 12 amp motor like the other vacs, but it doesn't really seem to have the same amount of suction on carpet. For example, we vacuumed our upstairs rooms completely with the 17G5 and then followed immediately over the same area with the 16N5 - the larger 16N5 actually picked up more dirt than the smaller unit had on the first run. (In our previous tests, we couldn't really detect any significant difference in suction between the Dyson and 16N5 vacs.

I recently reviewed the Bissell 16N5 Healthy Home 12 Amp Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner, so my expectations of a vacuum cleaner are now much higher! In that review, I highly recommended the 16N5 with the only caveat being that it was a bit heavy and perhaps not a good choice for Grandma. Tip: if it is too hard to push, just turn the height adjustment dial, as it may be too low (especially with higher carpet).

The Bissell 17G5 PROlite Multi-Cyclonic Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner is also very nice and significantly lighter (and easier to push) than the 16N5, but I prefer the 16N5 over the 17G5 (I will explain why below).

The first thing you will need to do with the 17G5 is about 5 minutes of very easy assembly. You'll need a Phillips screwdriver. You basically slide the handle onto the unit, and then screw in two Phillips screws to secure the handle in place. The instructions discuss assembling other pieces, but these steps were already done on the unit I received. This actually created a moment of confusion for me, when I was looking everywhere for the hose to install, per the assembly directions. I finally noticed that this hose unit (which is very different from other vacuums) was already in place. If you buy this unit, you'll see what I mean how the hose is a bit different, as it is very stretchy and flexible.

I have one major complaint that causes me to ding this vacuum one star. There is a large marketing sticker on the base of the vacuum, and they used some glue that apparently cannot be removed. I ended up having to leave the sticker on in order to avoid the unit being covered with glue. This is very irritating, and I don't recall the Bissell 16N5 having this problem.
