Summary: I have been thrilled with this vacuum cleaner. It is less expensive but has all the benefits that my Kenmore had. It is lighter, more user friendly and I am extremely satisfied. I was pleasantly surprised. Thank you Panasonic for making a quality product without gouging the consumer.
Summary: I had the older model of this vacuum (mc-cg902). The newer model has some nice improvements like a telescoping wand and the air turbine. It has great pick up and is fairly quiet. The only thing I don't like is the redesigned handle which doesn't feel as comfortable as the older model.
Summary: I dreaded replacing that old work horse because I figured the new models would not be made as well. This is quieter and works just as well. In fact, it looks like the same machine. I will say that the black color gets covered with dust from static, but not too badly.
Summary: Pros: Suction is good, extra attachments are conveniently located on back of canister, cord is sufficiently long, adequate filter. Cons: Feels very cheaply made and concerned that the plastic cover that keeps the extra attachments can break any minute.
