Summary: $205 for this vacuum is a fair price. However, the vacuum is more difficult to maneuver than I expected. The vacuum head which sweeps the floor is bigger than I like. I also feel like the suction is not as good as my old vacuum (which was a dyson). But, like I said, for the price I paid, it's a good value.
Summary: I had spent $1,000 on my Miele vacuum and it only lasted several years before the cord went out. I bought this one and I LOVE IT! It seems to have more pick up power than the Miele and it is easier to maneuver. The carpet attachment is lower and goes under more furniture and the pet accessory is wonderful. The bag is also much larger. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.

Summary: I have only used this sweeper a few times, but have not had any problems with the mechanics of it. The suction is great and I love having the on/off switch on the handle. It is also nice to be able to attach the upholstery brush to the handle and have it available at all times. My concerns are: The bags are very expensive, it is extremely difficult to disconnect the floor brush from the wand, and the door to the accessories compartment seems flimsy and sticks a little.
Summary: If I could give this vacuum 20 stars, I would. The suction is unbelievable. The ease of use is unbelievable. The fact that it cleaned my teenage boys' bedroom is a MIRACLE. Long cord? Check. Telescoping wand? Check. Onboard tools so that you don't lose the attachments? Check. Works equally well on bare floors as it does on carpets. If you need a deep clean, this is your vacuum. If you have a lot of rugs, I recommend picking them up before using.
I AM SO GLAD TO HAVE TAKEN THE CHANCE TO TRY THIS PANASONIC

Summary: I HAVE OWNED ONLY KENMORE CANISTERS OVER THE LAST 30 YEARS. I AM SO GLAD TO HAVE TAKEN THE CHANCE TO TRY THIS PANASONIC. IT IS OUTSTANDING. THE EXTENSION WAND IS WONDERFUL FOR TALLER OR BACK ISSUE USERS. THE SUCTION IS POWERFUL. JUST MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE BAG AS IT FILLS QUICKLY DO TO THE GREAT PERFORMANCE IT GIVES.
Summary: Its a nice vacuum, but the bag fills up too quickly. There is a lot of bag that is squished to one side when you install it and isn't filled when sweeping. That is poorly designed. It doesn't hold too much when you are picking up after 2 long haired dogs. For just general vacuuming, it is fine. I was upset with the retractable power chord. After 2 uses, it stopped retracting The price is good for what you get though. I liked all the attachments hidden inside.
Summary: I had a Kemore canister vac (made by Panasonic) and only the fact that I could not order a new hose, forced me to buy a new one. The Kenmore was probably 25 years old! Anyway, the quality of the new one is slightly below the old Kenmore, but it is a very handy and capable vac. You won't go wrong with the Panasonic MC-CG917!
Summary: we've only used it a few times but it is much easier to manuever than the upright we had. It floats over carpets with little coaxing and has that turning flexibility that gets into tight spaces. It is much quieter than any we have had so far. One thing I am not happy about is the hose connection between the wand and the main body. It is very sensitive and when I pull on it it will cut out.
