Summary: A real neat innovative little canister vacuum, great design. This compact little guy has incredibly strong suction, real user friendly with a neat cord reel. I use this vacuum for my hardwood, laminate and tile flooring, maneuvers easy, has a nice carry handle. I like the fact that is has a disposable bag plus it has a bag full indicator to take the guess work out of changing the bag. Also works as a blower.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Convenient
Summary: Great suction, lightweight and easy to use. Would have given a 5 if it had a brush attachment for blinds or upholstery. I bought it because I have a bad back and need something that is light and easy to use. The crevice tool works great but sometimes you need that little brush. I called the service dept. to see if they have one. They researched it, called me back and said they do. I ordered 2 since they are very inexpensive. That will make this the perfect vacuum.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: I love this little canister vac. I'm going today to buy an extra floor brush and a dusting brush. The dusting brush does not come with the vac. The bags are a little pricy but it's wonderful not to clean dirty filters. I purchased this vac for hard surface floor cleaning. It is not made for carpet vacuuming. I have 5 dogs (rescue dogs) and I need to vac everyday. It is light easy to maneuver and not too loud. The bag type is C-13.
Summary: Have only used it once ,so far, but am very happy with it. It is definitely quieter than my old canister and rolls around really easily. Lightweight. Has no storage for crevice nozzle but not a big problem . Metal tubing just slides together, no buttons or latches. It stays together . Most of my floors are bare, does a great job on those. Carpet takes a little more time to get well. I will update later after used it more.
Summary: I had a small blue Kenmore for years. loved it- wouldn't give it up even when I couldn't replace hoses and such...finely had to toss it....saw this small canister- thought I try it- OMG it is the SAME vacuum...even the parts are exactly the same as...anyway...Panasonic must have bought the Kenmore? It's modified a tid bit but every bit as good as my old little blue Kenmore. (Could have a longer cord but I can live w that!)For the value u can't beat it (hard to anyway!
