Summary: The vacuum has no pile height adjustment, and is so hard to push that my husband has to vacuum. Bummer! Also, the vacuum is too heavy. I like a lighter one. Sorry I ordered it. On a positive note, it does a heck of a job!
Summary: I was replacing a more expensive but similar model Panasonic vacuum so I read other reviews and this one was pretty much all positive. It was simple to assemble and I noted that it had an extra feature (the turbo brush) that my old one didn't. It is powerful! That's what I was looking for!
Summary: I bought this vacuum for my wife, but when it arrived and I was showing her the features we both were impressed with its power and how quietness. Drats.....now I'm doing all the vacuuming and don't mind it a bit.
Summary: After researching upright vacuums, I decided on this due to its set of features, simplicity, and powerful vacuum as reviewed by others. Compared to more expensive Panasonic uprights, I think this is a better option. Compared to other brands, it's give and take.
Summary: Love Panasonic products and clean my house daily, because of O.C.D. and believe me, this is the best. I have used or owned every brand and every price, and this one is surprisingly a great product at a great price.
Summary: About 30 years ago I needed a vacuum and Panasonic Vacuums were just hitting the market with dealers. They were light, easy to open, and clean. The beater bar lifts up so the brushes don't dig into the rug when you use the tools.
