Summary: Swivel head is hard to control, hose is too short, won't move over high carpet/shag rugs. Otherwise, good suction (so far) and looks nice. Afraid detract able cord is going to get warm out and frayed. Time will tell.
Summary: I purchased one of these vacuum cleaners about 4 months ago and it only runs for about 5 minutes and shuts off. I tried calling the customer service line on the Panasonic website and all they could do was refer me to a Panasonic repair shop that is 250 mile away. (he did ask if I had a different zip code.. I guess he was hoping I would move closer to the repair shop) The online support gives no suggestions for repair.. very frustrating.
Summary: This is a powerful vacuum cleaner and the price is affordable. It collected so much dust first time I used it. I was amazed. I was looking for a versatile machine and this Panasonic vac has all I need. Works well for me.
Summary: Face plate has broken off. Attachments never stayed on properly. Damage is ready for the garbage after barely owning a year. Can't believe this had the Good Housekeeping recommendation. Expected better quality from a Panasonic.
Summary: I purchased this item directly from Amazon. I studied all kinds of web sites including the Panasonic web site before purchasing this item and read all kinds of reviews.I hate this vacuum cleaner and I am very sorry I purchased it. There is no attachment that allows me to reach the dust on the top of my curtains, or the dust that forms on my fans in all my rooms.
Summary: Ya get what ya pay for. This vacuum was rated pretty good, but I dont like it. It does a great job as an upright, better than my dyson. However the attachment hose is worthless. It blows dust back into the room and the stupid vacuum falls over if you stretch it just a few feet. Poor design and hose not long enough.
Summary: Very powerfull, picks up everything on bare floor, easy to empty canister....love it. Only drawback is the extension hose is a little short, but I can live with that. Also the retractable cord is nice, but I wonder how long before it doesn't retract.
