Summary: I am so happy I made this purchase! I received my item quickly! It was very easy to assemble! It is lightweight yet, very powerful! I love how it just sucks up everything along the baseboards without have to use an attachment! I am very pleased with my purchase!
Summary: I have this one for our home and just ordered one as a gift for our son. It's lightweight enough for easy manageability but very powerful. It has a retractable cord which makes vacuuming quick and easy. We got rid of a bagless upright (our son has one now and hates it, too).
Pros: Has worked well for over 4 years. I now have two of them. One upstairs one downstairs. The only grip is no telescoping tube. Other than that this vacuum works great. Easy to use, light weight, powerful.
Summary: I purchased 2 of these in early 2012. Great price, couldn't pass it by. For a canister vacuum in this price bracket, you can't go wrong. My only reason for checking "features" with 4 stars, was due to the Hepa Filter. It could have better filtration.
Summary: Got this Panasonic to replace my 15-year old Kenmore of the exact same design. Good suction and with HEPA and at a good price. But parts look cheap, particularly the crevice tool and dust brush.
Summary: I researched this vacuum prior to purchasing it, unfortunately I could not find a store in Canada to buy it from and the price was good at Walmart.com $199. First time I used it, the hose did not have a secure connection to the canister and it would lose power.
A very good canister vacuum cleaner for the money.

Summary: I purchased my Panasonic canister vacuum cleaner after my 38 year old green Eureka canister finally quit. I really like this vacuum, really does a good job on my carpets, and the attachments do a nice job on furniture, pillows and dusting and isn't as loud and seems to have a lot of horsepower.
