    Solid performer but not lossless suction. Read on for Dyson side-by-side comparison: Hoover, Eureka, Oreck, Dirt Devil, & Shark, September 23, 2012

    This review is from: BISSELL CleanView Helix Bagless Upright Vacuum, Black, 95P1 (Misc.)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    We tested *most* of the top-selling vacuums on Amazon, in side-by-side tests. First, two observations:

    (1) Dyson is not the “best” vacuum ever made, but they do have the best marketing. If you’re looking for the “best” vacuum, let’s reframe the question a little bit – perhaps what’s the best vacuum under $500 or under $1000? If you’re looking for the “best”, be prepared to spend a minimum of $2,000-$3,000 for a commercial upright or whole-house system.

    (2) About rating sytems – only side-by-side comparisons make sense to us. I have a neighbor who has a Ferrari, and complains all the time about expensive tune-ups. He would give his Ferrari 3 stars on a bad day, 4 stars on a good day. My dad really likes his Hyundai, and would give it 5 stars. Does that make Hyundai better than Ferrari? We believe only in comparing apples to apples.

    Different Models Reviewed:


    The Bissell Helix Cleanview is a step up from the previous Helix models (such as the Power Helix – this model is updated, just a few more amenities), but the suction performs the same. The suction is quite impressive at first, maybe 90-95% as strong as the Dyson.

    The difference is, the “Helix” sorts out the large debris, but the small debris still ends up in the filter and WILL eventually clog it. Not a big deal – replace the filter (they run about $7 for 2-packs here on Amazon), and I suggest taking apart the canister and rinsing it out, or running it through the dishwasher (top shelf, cold or luke-warm water, air dry, not heat dry).

    The stair/pet attachment is almost identical to other models. The styling and handling is updated and great. Easy assembly. We really had no complaints.

    The problem is, if your budget for a vacuum is $100, this may not be the best bang for your buck. Don’t get me wrong – this is a great vacuum, especially if you’re a dedicated Bissell fan. However, over the past 2 weeks I’ve seen the Amazon price fluctuate from $89 to $116 (with free shipping)… and for that price, you can get Dyson-quality suction with the Eureka Airspeed or Hoover WindTunnel. Read on…


    The least expensive Dyson is the (Dyson DC33 Multi-Floor Upright) currently selling on Amazon for $299. If you absolutely need a Dyson to impress the neighbors, this is the best bang for your buck.

    However, after testing over a dozen different models, we discovered you don’t have to spend $300 to get a top-of-the-line vacuum, that there are several brands offering models right around $100 that perform just as well. Does the Dyson live up to its marketing claims? YES it does in our opinion, fantastic quality and lossless suction.

    But here’s an interesting experiment – look for Dyson on craigslist from just about any major city. You’ll find dozens of people with buyer’s remorse, who paid full price for a Dyson, realized that much less expensive models perform just as well, and are trying to sell their barely used Dysons in an attempt to recoup their investment. (We checked this morning, and found about 30 such listings in our city).


    These are fantastic vacuums, nearly on par with the Dyson, and currently the #1 selling upright vacuum on Amazon. They have near-lossless suction, lots of attachments, & bagless. We would put them as almost exactly on par with the Bissell Helix, but currently the (Hoover WindTunnel) is only $99 on Amazon.

    The auto-rewind cord is a commonly reported malfunction (the one we tested started to lose its spring after about 20 minutes, like an old set of window shades) and both the brush & belts tend to fail early as well. But all vacuums have drawbacks and design quirks. A huge perk is that the WindTunnel has a rinsable filter. Based on bang-for-your-buck, this is our top recommendation along with the Eureka Airspeed. You can’t go wrong with it.


    There are several different Airspeed models – Amazon currently sells the (Eureka AirSpeed Gold) for $110. There are three different models at Walmart ranging from $98 to $135, with slightly different features – bagged vs. bagless, see-through brushroll, etc.

    In our tests, all of these models performed on par with the Dyson. The Airspeed had slightly better sustained suction than the Hoover WindTunnel, with only a few…

    Good values with powerful suction, August 27, 2012
    Gadgetman (Saratoga, CA USA) –

    This review is from: BISSELL CleanView Helix Bagless Upright Vacuum, Black, 95P1 (Misc.)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    The Bissell Cleanview Bagless Vacuum cleaner provides good values for the price. Some of the key features I like are its powerful suction, easy to remove / empty dirt cup, HEPA filter, washer-able internal filter and long power-cord.

    The unit is pretty easy to assemble. All we need is to screw the top handle on the vacuum body, attach the vacuum hose and accessories on the vacuum unit. It does a very good job by sucking up a lot of dirt when I tested it on my carpeted and hard wood floors. This would probably be the most important considering factor for purchasing a vacuum cleaner and this unit does it quite well with its 12 Amp motor.

    A few areas which I believe could be better :

    – the power brush attachment is flat in design and does not have an angle adjustment which makes it a bit harder to use in some areas
    – this unit does not have a lamp attachment for vacuuming in low-lighted areas
    – no automatic cord rewind feature

    This product would be a good choice for those who are budget conscious and want an unit which does a good powerful cleaning job.

    Update 1/4/2013

    – the belt for the front brush broke by accidentally sucking in a towel on the floor. Luckily amazon has the spare parts Bissell 7/9/10 Belt 3031120 available which costs less than three dollars for two belts
