Summary: My previous Raindow vacuum finally died on me after 27+ years. I was completely confused as to even where to start other than I knew I did not want to purchase a bagless vacuum. The Panasonic has been great on carpet and floors.
Summary: I love my old Kenmore...found online bags on Amazon that are very inexpensive. I tried an upright cannister, but donated it because it couldn't get under furniture, and was a major pain to clean...yuk. This Panasonic works like a champ, and no cleaning.
Summary: This vacuum is absolutely great! It has all of the features I needed and wanted, it's very powerful and easy to use. The wand is adjustable and is a great feature. I would absolutely recommend this vacuum to everyone who prefers a canister over an upright.
Summary: My wife and I cleaned houses and business , so this gave us the opportunity to try many vacuums. Our testing consisted of Kirby, Dyson, Rainbow, Electrolux; etc. Our favorite hands down was the Panasonic which is the same as the Kenmore that we used.
Pros: The vacuum does a very good job. I had no problems with Newegg whatsoever.

Once i did speak to a person the nearest repair center was 70 miles away in Philadelphia.That was not an option, so the...
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.
