Okay. I've bought just about every hardwood floor cleaner out there. I have 2,000 sq. ft. of hardwood and tile floors and I'm sick and tired of cleaning them. Guess I'm looking for a unit that will clean up without me getting involved. Not gonna happen. I won't bore you with all the stuff I've tried, but Swiffer, Bona, Hoover, and various iterations of Bissell [including the new gadget that's supposed to mop and then steam all in one unit (doesn't deliver - had the original steam mop - loved it)] are sitting in my closet (oh yeah, can't forget the sharks - several of those including steamers - no go.) Anyway, as a last ditch effort I tried this Poweredge thing. Guess what - it seems to really do the job. The suction is great. LOVE IT!!! Trust me - I've tried them all. ... but this thing really sucks up the stuff on the floor and I can walk barefoot and not feel grit. I give it 5 stars! I'm tossing the junk in the closet and keeping the Poweredge. Well, at least until something new and more exciting comes along...

An update...Almost a year later and I still love this vac! Haven't had problems with scratching hardwood or whining noises. I mentioned a Bona in my review. I reviewed a Bona mop and that is definitely my go to wet mop product. This Bissell PowerEdge is a standout dry floor cleaner. It picks up everything - so when I use the Bona to wash the floors there are no tracks of dirt left behind. For the price this is a great little picker-upper!

Another update - May 2012 - Bad news...evidently Bissell no longer makes the Poweredge! It figures - finally a product that does the job and they take it off the market. I sure hope mine keeps going. It still is the best little hardwood floor vac out there.

i have come back to say i returned the vacuum and changed my rating from 5 stars to three. here is my first 5 star review-
"well, first i must say, this has alot of power for a stick vac. it literally has suction to the floor unlike most stick vacs. considering its strength, it is still very light and takes up very little space. the cup is very easy to empty. its has a nice handle area making it a snap to move around. the cord is average for most stick vacs. the base is def something you need to get used to when up against the wall, but so far its been good. i do wonder how it would do if i were to spill something by the baseboard though. the vacuum manuevers very well, but at times, its almost too much. it literally can move all different directions, which sometimes can get move more than you wanted. but i am being picky, the power on this stick vacuum makes up for any little criticisms one may have."

since using the vacuum, i still stand by my above, but after using it a few times, i noticed these really fine, thin scratches in the floor. you couldnt see them in certain lights and im sure no one visiting would notice but they were there. i finally realized that when i vacuumed the hardwood, especially when going against the grain, the bristles actually left these thin surface scratches. it almost seems like the new bristles are very hard, combined with such strong suction, leave the marks.

i must though admit, we have shiny floors so the scratches are only in the coating over the floors. i imagine if you had more matte type floors, this wouldnt be an issue. i dont believe its scratching the wood at all, just the sealer on top. i would have only taken away one star since it still is such a great stick vac, but the fact that its name even contains "hard floor", i didnt expect scatching no matter what, so i took 2 stars off.

Starting this review off, I want to say this is a must have for hard wood floors (linoleum, kitchen, tile etc). Think having a vacuum in the house is a necessary appliance? This vacuum is a must have addition that is limited to only hard floors. Oh yea, this does rugs too. With this, there is no need for a broom.

Usually when you think of using a regular house vacuum in , say, the kitchen, you picture hauling a 15 pound machine as it bulldozes its way around corners and tables, just to get those little pieces of crumbs and dirt off the floor. What is different with the 4 pound PowerEdge is there is no 'hauling', there is only 'lifting'--which can be done with one finger.

With lightweight vacuums (trust me I had a 100$ one that doubled as a dustbuster), you think low suction, and a device that sits more than it gets put to use. Not an issue with the PowerEdge. It seems to have the power of a heavy duty vacuum without the size (the suction actually pulls the objects in before you run over it), and it is probably the easiest vacuum to maneuver. On a typical vacuum the handle is mainly used for the force to 'push' the vacuum. However, with the PowerEdge the handle also pivots and turns so that you can get extremely precise motion that only goes, in any direciton, that you wish. I found this to be extremely helpful when going around refrigerators, tables, or underneath chairs.

Also with this vacuum, you get a bagless operation that always helps in that you never have to pay extra whenever the vacuum gets full. Simply lift the container out and dump the fluff in the garbage.

Using this vacuum for several months, and watching the broom and dust pan collect lots of dust, I can say this is the most useful, and easiest to operate, vacuum I have ever used. Many family members will now be receiving these as gifts. Add another space in your house for the PowerEdge, it will be one of your best appliance purchases.
