Rated 2 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not as good as I thought I thought getting a more expensive panasonic vacuum was better.. its not what I found out.. This model has a very small compact area for the vacuum bag.. which doesn't use, all the room in the bag.. I"m now having trouble with the wand moving down ward, when I vacuum.. It doesn't stay up, where its supposed to.. not even sure, I can get it fixed... or replaced.... or what the cost will be to have that taken care of.. And the fact that it says.. its a floor vacuum without the floor attachment.. there is no way, a beater bar can pick up dirt off of the floor, even without the beater moving.. they just don't.. i've cleaned houses over 20 years.. and i've used alot of vacuums .. I would get the cheaper vacuum and not spend more money on a more expensive they are over rated for this Opti-flow tech.. What is that anyway? I haven't noticed anything different from any other vacuum i've used.. December 15, 2012
