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: 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
17 October 2014
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: Cool! This is a product good enough to rate a review. Our old Hoover canister croaked after about 15 years. We have 1700 feet of Pergo laminate flooring with low pile area rugs and no carpet. Have had the unit a month here in 2014. Cons: The power cord plug does not have a flat spot on the rim so you have to look at the plug to see which is the fat prong. That's a biggie!
