Rated 1 out of 5 by msujbird Not Good. Lacks Power and Suction Purchased this vac to replace my Hoover Whisper Cyclonic. The Hoover is great... we just repurposed it to the cottage after a few years. The panasonic looked great on paper, but that is where it ends. I wanted a vac that could be half canister, half regular and this made those claims. I just returned it to my local Walmart after a week of use. The Whisper Cyclonic was very, very quiet, but this Panasonic has a shrill, high pitched whine to it when on. It has no height adjustment for different carpets. It has terrible suction at the brushroll. When you are using the wand, it is decent, but for carpets it is not good. It is heavy and cumbersome to move and it pushes like a tank. I don't usually write reviews, but this vac is not good.Purchased the Shark Upright for 170.00 after returning this one and whereas I can't review that one yet, the Shark has suction to burn compared to this Panasonic. We vacuumed with the Panasonic minutes before putting it in the box to return, and when we re-vacuumed upon return home with the Shark, it picked up a good amount, especially very, very fine dust, that the Panasonic left behind. Enough to let me know for sure that the Panasonic was not doing the job. The Shark feels a bit plasticy and is smaller, but it has well more power and suction. Going to try it for a week or so and see. Wish they still sold my Whisper Cyclonic! Do yourself a favor and skip this vacuum. Hope this helps. 09/01/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by HWid Great Value for the money Was considering Dyson, but they are way too expensive and the plastic on the Dyson looks Cheap.In the past always use Panasonic vacuum, so even though this Panasonic were not available for sale at the store, and online can be bought online,I trust enough to buy it without ever seeing it in person before I buy.Turn out, I made a good choice.The Plastic casing of the Panasonic Vacuum were much better than Dyson,and the Vacuum power is very very powerful.This Vacuum also came with many included accessories to help reach certain hard to reach place.The Dirty / Clean Sensor also help to make sure we do not left the carpet still dirty.I am glad I bought this Vacuum !!! 12/14/2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by petluvver Nice Vacuum Cleaner This is a great machine, but I have very bad hands, and the weight causes a lot of pain. Other than that.......it does a great job cleaning and the first time I used it my carpet looked many times better than it had in months. I have two cats, so you can imagine how much hair is deposited on my royal blue carpeting. The vacuum cleaner is a great machine, and if you have bad hands you can get your hubby or significant other to do it for you. ;-) 08/19/2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tigina This vacuum stands on the step higher then others. GOOD: Quality built materials. Loaded with features. Very quiet. Strong in suction.Nice filtration system.BAD: Bad maneuverability (Rubber wheels make it hard to turn on the carpet).Little heavy (because of high quality material used).I got mine little defective (handle is...), so i am going to return back. But I will order another one! One little defect in the handle cannot make me to stop enjoy using it.Overall I can say in one word - this is the PANASONIC. With this brand you can't go wrong. I am a big fan of Panasonic (please DON'T think that I am working for them), because it is one of the most reliable brand on the market. 02/06/2013
