Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sucker I Chose Wrong With This
I have had this vacuum for over a year now. It replaced my old Fantom upright that just got worn out. I disliked the dusty job of emptying the canister of the Fantom so I went to this Panasonic bag type. After a year, I sure miss my Fantom, and I mostly hate this thing I have now. It is well-made, can't complain there. The main problem is that the hose is just too short! The hose makes it really difficult to move around a room, and it is always yanking the vacuum body around and crashing into my walls and furniture.
I thought it would be easier in a bigger, more open room, but when I had an empty room I was changing carpet in, I found out this thing is still awkward and annoying to move around. I would not recommend this vacuum to anyone. I will be replacing it soon, and looking for an upright with a bag.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GardenGal Good Vacuum Cleaner
Vacuum cleaner is very similar to my previous vacuum. The canister moves easily across the carpet. Cleans well. One feature that I miss on my old vacuum cleaner is the lengthening or shortening of the wand as needed; a nice feature for taller folks & for cleaning varying areas. The only reason I rated it good was the wand, otherwise, an excellent product.

All I ever bought was Panasonic. I bought one 25 years ago and it's still working. My daughter bought a Hoover and not too long after the wheel fell off and not as powerful as the Panasonic. Very pleased with this purchase.

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.

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.
