Cons: collection bin not airtight. Cord management
Other Thoughts: I bought this vacuum at after seeing this vacuum at Lowe's Home Improvement, and reading last years consumer reports test of leading vacuum brands. The Bissel Cleanview Helix scored higher in the overall category than vacuums costing 5 times as much, including the Dyson animal, dyson dc33 multifloor, and both Rainbow, and kirby vacuums.
This vacuum is powerful, lightweight, and most importantly, is a steal when compared with other vacuums performance versus cost.
I have only a few complaints about this model and have used it extensively in the past few months that I have owned it. The first complaint is the lack of an auto cord retractor. Including that feature on this model and charging a bit more would have made it almost flawless. The second complaint, and its really a personal opinion type of thing, is that the collection bin doesn't seal airtight against the upper lip of the vacuum's body when the locking lever is fully engaged. I would have prefered some type of gasket material to make the seam as airtight as possible to prevent any leakage whatsoever. So far, I have seen no issue with dust and debris escaping, but I can only assume that after a few hundred rotations of the locking lever, the tightness will have degraded. Again, this is sheer speculation at this point, but again for another 10 USD on the cost both a cord reel and gasket could have been added to this model and it still would beat the socks off it's nearest competitors.
I would highly recommend Bissel Helix vacuums to anyone looking for a great upright bagless vacuum.
