MC-CG885 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Suction Power I am surprised at the reviewer who stated that it does not work. Mine, which I have had for over 6 months, has great suction power. The nozzle has 4 adjustable heights that you set depending on the type of floor being vacuumed. I have used it on carpet and hardwood floors. It picks up my dog's hair who sheds quite a bit thoughout the year. The HEPA filter works great. Because I am allergic to dust, I used to vacuum with a dust mask. My old Hoover which did not come with a filter used to spread fine dust out its exhaust vent. With this Panasonic, I no longer have to do that. Now I can breathe better while I am vacuuming. I bought 4 packs of extra bags and am now looking for a spare HEPA filter. My only complain about this vacuum cleaner is that it's a bit heavy to pick up, but once on the floor it rolls very smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic MC CG885 I have only had this vacumn for a couple of weeks, but so far I have had no problems and it cleans very good. I would definitely recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I purchased about a month ago and the online retailer has already removed them/no longer available. It works okay on carpet, but the suction on floors is horrible. The attachements which are only 2 are not made correctly and don't fit into alot of areas. The canister portion does not move freely & is difficult to pull around. I was looking for another vacumm and was told at Sears that Panasonic makes Kenmore, so I have marked Kenmore off my list.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't Use It I can't get bags for my new vacuum. No one has them including Panasonic. I used the one bag that came with it in the first two weeks. Now I can't use the vacuum.
