This Bissell Vacuum is a pretty good vacuum. I had this vacuum for about four years before we needed another one. Eventually the vacuum stopped working and died. During the time that we had it we liked it though. This is pretty strong and durable but at the same time it was pretty light for carrying up and down stairs. It comes with different attachments and settings for easy use. The suction on this vacuum was better than I thought it would be. I could go over the floor once and be good with it. It was pretty easy to move and go around furniture. All in all I liked this vacuum a lot. I was hoping it would last a bit longer before dying, but while we had it I liked it a lot. We ended up switching to a dirt devil after this one. I think that they both work about equally. I would use this again. Maneuverability I thought that this was easy to move around. Ease of Maintenance There really isn't a lot of maintenance to it, which was nice. Suction Performance The suction on this vacuum was good for basic jobs around the house. It worked the best on carpet. Design It was a good basic vacuum design. Durability This is a pretty strong and sturdy vacuum.
