Summary: This is the best vacuum I've ever used. I have two cats and hardwood floors and there is no litter scatter when I use the floor attachment. My last vacuum just sprayed litter instead of picking it up. The cord is plenty long enough to reach everywhere in my small house. The attachments are easy to put on and I like the handle on/off switch. I feel like I got a great value for the price.
Summary: I think the vacuum is great. I'm not used to a canister at all. AND,,, quite frankly , I still don't care for a canister,, BUT you can reach places you can't with an upright. the vacuum part , I don't know what to call it,,, is quite wide. I could have been happier with it not so wide so that I could get it into narrower places. But it appears to do a great job. I'm happy it haves a bag. I can't stand emptying those bagless vacuums.
Summary: Have only used it twice but it is comparable to the Kenmore that I bought this to replace. Kenmore lasted about 15 years and I see this as comparable. Like the on/off switch in the handle, more convenient. Good suction, easy to move from room to room, this is the 3rd of this style I have had and finds it easy to use.
Summary: We needed a vacuum to care for just a small amount of carpet but a lot of hardwood floors. We have a shedding dog that is allowed on the furniture so one of the prime reasons for this purchase was to keep the upholstered chairs free of white dog hair. This vacuum seems to do the job. We have had it only a few weeks so long term, I do not know how this will be but I am very happy with the performance so far.
Summary: We've only used it a few times but so far it meets all expectations. This is a replacement for the vacuum that's "just as good as a Dyson.". That one was very noisy, had no roller height adjustment so tore fibers out of our high-pile carpet and didn't do really well on bare floors. The Panasonic is easy to maneuver, cleans edges really well and is pretty quiet. As others have mentioned, it's very much like our old Kenmore which served us well for many years.
Summary: I had high hopes for this vacuum but unfortunately it arrived with a defect in that the hose could not be made to engage with the carpet attachment. The little button that supposed to pop out and hold it in wouldn't come out through the hole. I could've exchanged it for another identical vacuum but I also noticed that some of the parts on that carpet attachment were very flimsy plastic and would be sure to break in a short time. Keep looking for another model.
Summary: I like this vacuum because of the dusting brush. Returned a Kenmore because the brush was so large and the bristles were very short. It vacuums well. It's a basic unit with nothing fancy. Doesn't have a dust bag full indicator which I will miss but I will be able to tell by the suction. It has a large dust bag compared to my old vacuum. The hose could be a little longer. I like the fact that it doesn't have all kinds of parts. It has the Good House Keeping seal.
