Casa Beta: Versus Bare Floor Vacuum Cleaner

The folks over at Bissell sent me the new Versus Bare Floor Vacuum Cleaner ($79.99) to review, and of course I obliged, seeing as my floors can always use a good cleaning and I can always use a little motivation to clean them. After thorough vacuuming and consideration, I've come to a few conclusions about the new Versus.
Here are its pros:

  • With 12 amps of power, it's got great suction, and works wonders on — you guessed it — bare floors.
  • The canister is a cinch to empty.
  • The cord wraps up conveniently around two spokes to prevent a tangling mess.
  • It's compact and stores easily.
  • Its v-shaped head rakes large debris into the center suction path as it cleans.

To hear the cons,


Here are the cons:

  • While the unusual head shape may be great at collecting large debris, it makes it difficult to get into small spaces and corners, which is more important to me.
  • The vacuum sucks too hard on area rugs and carpet, making it difficult to roll.
  • Hair seems to clog easily in the brush, but that may just be the nature of all vacuums.
  • It's not super easy to maneuver — it's certainly no Dyson Ball.

Overall, I'd say it's a quite a powerful vacuum for the price, a good option if you have bare floors and can manage small corners with a dust buster or mop. We'll see how the power holds up in a few months, though; vacuums have a knack for reversing first impressions.
