Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vacuum cleaner This is a typical European style vacuum that is quiet, light, and powerful. It comes with all the attachments neatly hidden inside the body of the main unit. It also come with a carpet brush that uses the same hose and all the floor attachments. The power cord for the carpet brush is inside the hose and the electrical connections are sturdy and easy to use. I only wish the hose was longer, as sometimes the main vacuum is too close to your feet. The electrical cord is in the body of the vacuum and retracts automatically - it could also be a little longer, as my rooms are large. The filters are HEPA certified and are inexpensive to replace. I really like the vacuum and it does a great job on both, hardwood and tile floors, as well as carpeted floors (the brush has height adjustments, making it effective on various thicknesses of carpets). Great price too! September 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Professional House Cleaner review So I clean houses for a living. I bought this vacuum for my own home to try out before I recommended for my clients to buy. My clients usually buy the things I recommend for them, I only recommend what I would use because I'm the one cleaning in their home. After trying it out here are the pros and cons (I'm pretty particular so I hope this helps) Pros: Suction is awesome Great on hard woods and on carpets Easy to use and great storage for the attachments Cons: The hose (not the electrical cord) is too short, I have to pull the vacuum along every time I take a step. (I have used other canisters that have longer hoses and they are amazing). When using just the wand, it is too short. You have to bend over or squat down to get corners, behind toilets etc. I have used others where the wand detaches closer to the floor brush so you can get corners while standing up. That feature is a must for me. The floor brush is kinda buiky making it harder to get near edges and into corners. The electrical cord isn't super long, but I don't really mind having to use several outlets. I'd rather the other things be fixed. I would love to help them design a better version, I love canister vacuums and am sad to have to send this one back. September 24, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by New model features I have had Panasonic vacuum cleaners for years, but this one has new features that I like - such as on-off switch on handle and easy storage of parts. September 4, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 it was not brand new Unfortunately it was not brand new. The bag was half full with kind of some dirt. How it could be i have recieved not absolutely new vacuum cleaner August 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 great service I got this vacuum with in a week, which is phenominal for this area..It works great, does everything I was hoping..It almost seems too easy to use, I keep checking to make sure it is really running after struggling with my old machine...time will tell! July 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Replacement for 35 yr old Panasonic VC My old canister vac, well used, just died and I replaced it with this model. Works great! July 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 Great vacuum for the price! Relatively light-weight, powerful suction, and lots of great features and attachments. It would be nice if there were a lower power switch, since the only two settings, "floor" and "carpet", are both too strong for vacuuming draperies and bed skirts, even with the adjustable suction feature in the completely open position. Bags are pretty expensive, too. Otherwise, it's a great vacuum, at least so far. We've always been satisfied with other Panasonic products, so we expect reliability to be good. May 11, 2015
