Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by none Good replacement for Kenmore canister
I have owned 2 Kenmore canister vacuums - they lasted for years. When it was time to replace my old one they had changed, what was a user friendly vacuum, to difficult and not user friendly. The "upgrades" were awful. I found this vacuum and it is almost identical to my kenmore. I can tell it is a bit lighter in weight and I have not used it long enough to know if it will last as long as my old kenmores. They keep making parts cheaper so I do not know what is in the inside. It does have excellent power and is user friendly like I wanted. I would not order this vacuum from Amazon or any other online company just in case it had a defect and needed to be exchanged. Home Depot is in town and if I needed to return it for any reason I felt safe buying it there. The price was excellent!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthernLady Love so many things about this vacuum!
The top 3 things I love about this vacuum: #1 - it has a dedicated bare floor brush attachment. That is hard to find in most vacuums these days. #2 - The carpet "beater" has a sweeper action on the side that gets the edges of the carpet next to the baseboards as you vacuum. #3 The on/off control is on the top part of the nozzle so you don't constantly have to bend down to power it off and on. It's also lightweight, and I love that it uses disposable bags, as I personally hate to have to handle the dirt I just vacuumed up.

After a couple bag less Vacuums, this is the best one ever! I wish I would have purchased this 10 yrs. ago. Works great, and no mess whatsoever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jageludo Best Vacuum value for the money
This vacuum cleaner is comparable to the best vacuums on the market for a fraction of the price.
I’m familiar with most of the high-end, expensive brands and they have no big advantage over this product. Reasons: Huge amount of suction for deep cleaning; Chevron-designed motor-driven wooden brush-roll for great carpet and floor cleaning; excellent motor filter plus a genuine HEPA air filter. Good quality construction (including hose) and variety of tools. Use in conjunction with a high-quality dust bag and you have a first-rate cleaner. Can take some rugged handling, but don’t go and beat it to death. Headlight and cord-reel are big bonuses.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LouLou Good canister vac
The vacuum was a little hard to assemble, and it is very difficult to detach near the handle. It has a plug that runs up the length of the pipe and plugs into the handle. Everything is so tight, that I am unable to unplug it there, so if I want to use something like the upholstery brush, I have to put it on the very end of the pipe. It is unwieldy to use that way. Otherwise, the vacuum works great. It has really good suction and is very light weight, which is important to me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CheBella Excellent Product --
Decision to purchase was based on research and reviews by folks that actually used this vacuum cleaner -- In replacing my older Kenmore canister I find that this Panasonic canister meets all of the requirements for home cleaning -- the power head has excellent suction and the noise level is acceptable -- and -- the other important choice for myself was the color -- RED -- and a beautiful dark blue-red it is -- I love it and it makes cleaning a bit more pleasurable - if ya know what I mean --
The absolute only drawback for myself is that the hose is a bit short (18" less than the old Kenmore) but am sure I will get used to it -- Hope it works well for many years to come...
