Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from PAST ATTACHMENTS DO NOT FIT! This little vac is perfect in suction, size, etc. for me. THE BIG PROBLEM IS, they have made it not standard sized for using your favorite existing attachments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Perfect UpstairsVcuum We have a large, two story house. We have 2 large, heavy canister vacs and 2 upright cyclone vacs. We needed something to reach the dust bunnies under the beds upstairs that wouldn't break my wife's back and could store unobtrusively. There is no carpeting upstairs. The regular canister vac will not fit under our bed for storage and is clumsy. The Panasonic with its small size and fully swiveling head fits under all tables, dressers and beds. The suction is extraordinary for such a small unit. And when its packed away, you don't know its there. Good job!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from Inexpensive vacuum with good suction; best on hard floors. No useful attachments are included or available as accessories and the non-standard size of the hose will not fit attachments you may have for other vacuums.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good compact vac that lacks one thing A compact vac like this is ideal for use in hard-to-reach places like high shelves. For floors, I use an upright. But this vac comes with no small brush, which used to be standard in the "old days." Fortunately I have old brushes that sort of fit. This vac should come with a small brush, even if it adds a couple of bucks to the price! Also this vac comes with a hose made of thin plastic, typical of today's units. Bring back those wire-reinforced hoses made of UV-resistant material! Otherwise this seems to be a good vac for the reasons I checked off.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Good suction Powerful little vacuum. Only downfall is bag is too small and fills up quickly. Cord is also kind of short, had to buy extension cord

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from The little vacuum that could This is little nice vacuum. The first thing my wife said when she saw it: "It is so pretty!" :-) It is perfect for small and medium size house or apartment. Very easy to use. Thanks to retractable power cable it is very compact to store it away. It is the best vacuum in it's class you can buy in USA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Nice small vacuum This vacuum is not for a large house. This little vacuum works well in my motor home. I don't have room for a large vacuum in my small spaces and this one fits perfectly. It does a very good job picking up dust etc. I would recommend it for anyone with a small space to keep clean. The bag is very small so it doesn't take long to fill it up if you have a Lab dog in the motor home. I don't have steps in my house but I would expect it to do a good job on steps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Compact Vacuum A real neat innovative little canister vacuum, great design. This compact little guy has incredibly strong suction, real user friendly with a neat cord reel. I use this vacuum for my hardwood, laminate and tile flooring, maneuvers easy, has a nice carry handle. I like the fact that is has a disposable bag plus it has a bag full indicator to take the guess work out of changing the bag. Also works as a blower. Only comes with one small crevice tool which does not store on the vacuum. I used a brush attachment from another vacuum, fit just fine. I like the way the Vacuum stores upright with a nice attachment point for the hose.

Why is there no more suction from my vacuum?Check the following:
- Ensure that the dust bin is not clogged or full. If so clear the clogged area or empty the bin.
- Check the hose for damage or holes. Replace the hose if needed.
- Ensure that the hose is inserted fully.
- Ensure that the filters are clean.
Why did my agitator brush stop spinning in my vacuum?Ensure that the belt is not broken. If the belt is broken, replace it. If the belt is not broken and is installed correctly, the vacuum would require servicing. You can locate the closest service center by clicking here.
Why does the vacuum become extremely hot and shut off after five minutes?1. Ensure that there are no clogged areas
2. Change the filter
3. Check the hose.
