I think Bissell was much better a few years ago then now. Because seems like we have become such a replaceable society. That companies are charging from the arm to the leg for products. But they only last a few years at best. SO sad. But I had the cheapest bissell you could find one of the first bagless ones. Paid 40 bucks for it. I regret the day I let my brother use it. He never brought it back. It was the best vac Ive ever owned!
No joke, I've been using and abusing my Bissell lift off since before Thanksgiving in the high hopes I could break it and get a Dyson for Christmas. I can't justify spending the money for a Dyson when I have a good working vacuum (HAHAHA!). I've been vacuuming my carpet on "bare floor" setting, I've been maxing out the dust bin, not cleaning filters, abusing it. I still can't get the darn thing to break.
I do want the dc33. I think it's better than the ball Dysons. It has a longer cord, it has a bigger motor, and it has a bigger dust bin. We're in a big house, with 4 dogs and 3 kids and 3 birds. I vacuum every other day and my Bissell is still working like day one.
I just think a lot of people get them thinking they will be some type of miracle vacuum, and when their expectations aren't matched they return them, hence so many refurbs.
