Summary: This is an unwieldy, heavy vacuum that is difficult to manoever as a result. There is one tool that has no holder which is inconvenient. The rocker button for the carpet/bare floor option kept switching to bare floor even though I was vacuuming carpet.
Panasonic MC-UL915 "Jet Force" Bagles Vacuum Cleaner, Metallic Red

Summary: Overall a decent vacuum cleaner with a few pros and cons to take note of before purchasing. Have used this vacuum for six months about one time per week. Purchased based on reviews and brand name. Pros: 1. On the quiet side. 2. Long cord. 3. Has a quality and well built feel about it. 4.
Pros: At first, great suction. Love the dirt detector.
Cons: Lasted about a year, now it has almost no suction. It's bad enough that its showing tracks in the carpet. We have cleaned all the hoses, plugs, brushes, etc but it hasn't made a bit of difference. Even cleaned inside the machine and pulled everything apart. Nope, no difference. Glad I didn't pay ...
Summary: I bought this bagless vacuum cleaner several months ago and have liked using it very much. You have to empty the canister every time you use it and you fail to clean filters at your peril--which I faithfully did. Nevertheless it just stopped working.
Summary: Over the past few years, I've owned a basic bagless Hoover, midline bagless Eureka, and a basic commercial Oreck (which requires bags). They are all very different and different still from this Panasonic vacuum cleaner.
Summary: This vacuum has some really nice features, a little technology over the competition, but it is a major pain to empty. May 3, 2013 Update: The dirt detector (the reason I liked using this vacuum cleaner) died. It no longer works. I've tried cleaning it out with no luck.
Summary: This vacuum has pretty good suction and cleans carpets well. The dirt indicator is a nice function and will save you time from playing the guessing game. I was not as satisfied with the hard floor cleaning, but it is good enough.
Summary: This vacuum was easy to set up straight out of the box. There are plenty of attachments that fit every cleaning method desired. It did a good job overall. The Panasonic makes it easy to switch between vacuum head and attachments.
