MC-UG583 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SImply the best This is a no nonsense, extreme carpet cleaning machine. With the tri-force metal agitator embedded dirt, sand and dog hair will not escape this machine. The on board tools are designed for doing quick touch up cleaning. I bought the optional attachment set that comes with a longer hose, 2 wands, bare floor tool, crevice tool busting brush and fabric brush. If you don't have a canister and want the flexibility to deep clean above the floor and bare floors the attachment set is a requirement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product / Great Value I've owned two exact brand Panasonic vacuums over the past two decades. These vacuums are used on a daily basis to clean Funeral Homes that I own and have outperformed other vacuums with a much higher price tag. I became concerned when I was looking for a replacement. The vacuum is harder to find in local retail stores and ma and pa retail vacuum and sewing shops, so I went ahead and ordered it through Panasonic direct. Like I said, the vacuum is very reliable and does a fine job, outperforming by far any other vacuum cleaner I've ever used. Keep up the great work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great simple vacuum This is a good, basic vacuum. Lightweight and simple to use. Seems to have some automatic acceleration so it goes forward with less effort than my previous vacuum. It has excellent suction. Only cons are that it does not vacuum floors well, it's rather loud and it does not come with an upholstery nozzle attachment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from what a waste of money inadequate on rugs. Note that the directions don't tell you where it will clean (only rugs). A useless tool, I'm donating mine to the good will. Feel sorry for whoever gets it. The directions are inadequate as well and it should be marked that it is only for carpets. All in all, will never buy another thing from Panasonic

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great deal I just purchased this model, and am very happy with it so far. It is lightweight, has great suction, is quieter than others I've used, and the price was very reasonable for the quality. I would recommend this vacuum to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the Best Built Vacuum Around! I have had this vacuum for some time now, and I have to say it is simply excellent. It really is everything you would expect from a well built machine. Suction is outstanding, on rug as well as attachments. The fact that you get a 2 year parts and labor warranty as well as a 5 yr warranty on the motor says it all for me. I just couldn't be happier. Unless you need buttons in certain places, or useless turbo brush attachments, this vacuum will do everthing you need,
