Summary: I'm a canister vacuum lover. I love the versatility and convenience of having everything with me as I move through the house. This vacuum does it all. I used to buy the Kenmore, but their quality has gone down hill. The Panasonic is virtually the same vacuum with some nice new features. I'm so glad I found it. Great quality.
Summary: I've had bagless vacuum cleaners for many years now. I had a couple upright bagless then went to a canister bagless and now back to the bagged because I didn't like how they lost suction over time and they lacked the options this Panasonic MC-CG902 has that I wanted such as: Pros: Great suction, has the best tool selection I've seen, the motorized power head real works well and lays flat so I can reach way under beds and sofas without it lifting up off the floor and...
Summary: I returned this vacuum because it was cheaply made: the plastic was light, the wheels seemed fragile, the connectors were not very positive, the hinge on the lid was sticky and difficult and light-weight, and the switch seemed cheap. This machine is exactly like my last Kenmore but even flimsier. This last vacuum I had fell completely apart: wheels, connectors, hose, cord reel, and the stop on the powerbar that holds the hose and tube upright.
Summary: Had to use a piece of radiator hose to adapt a Hoover bare floor tool in order angle access corners and stair levels. Had to tie knot in cord to prevent auto reel of cord when setting down the cleaner. Cleaner hose gets in the way while vacuuming unless the cleaner is held in reverse of design so that hose exits to your back instead of the side. Tool cover is difficult to open without discomfort.
Cons: Did not meet expectations, Difficult to use, untested features

Summary: Not yet anyway. So like many of you I was looking at replacing an well used Kenmore Progressive canister vac. I kept waiting for a sale or coupon, but the prices never seemed to drop to a reasonable level. So I thought "lets check amazon" and the listing for the Panny came up. Looked exactlly like my Kenmore, and had great reviews, and was less than half the cost. So I took a shot, and let me tell you this might be my 2nd best deal on amazon ever.
Summary: I ordered this product based upon the primarily good reviews I had read over the internet. Unfortunately, one of the reviews mentioned that the electrical relay system has provided problems and I believe that is what occurred with the product that I had. When I originally hooked up the machine, it ran like a dream for the 5 minutes that I had it plugged in (simply just checking it out!
Summary: It's very easy to set up and use. I like that is has several attachments - great for vacuuming your car. We have all tile in our house with a few rugs, so the different floor/carpet settings work very nicely for us!
Summary: I was looking to replace my old Kenmore vacuum, but the reviews for the newer models weren't that great, they had too many bells and whistles that I didn't want or need, and they were rather pricey (plus the colors were not of my liking). I found this Panasonic online which looks identical to another Kenmore I owned in the past (so clearly, Panasonic made certain Kenmore models). It works great!
