But please read what I have to say before you purchase this Vacuum Cleaner and then make an honest decision. I am not saying that their opinions are wrong, I would just like to convey my own in a way by which you, as the consumer, can justify your decision without prejudice.
1. I am over 6" tall. I need something which can stretch out in the neck to handle so that I am not bending over to clean. See the metal attachment lower down in the connection to the hose? That's real metal and that pulls out to extend more than enough of a length to fit even my large build.
2. I have rugs, albeit nothing thick like shag...but if you have shag get yourself a steam vac or perhaps a vacuum with a rotating bristle. This Vacuum's suction power is so strong, EVERY rug in my house stays perfectly clean, and is cleaned by only this Vacuum.
3. Some people mentioned how the arm slides off the connected hose because there isn't a button or dimple to ensure the piece holds together when connected. Since we have used this product, there NEVER has been a time that the connection slid off it's true fit, and I doubt with the proper use it ever will.
Again, perhaps I have been blessed with the best version of this product, and others have found problems with the ones sent to them, mainly because of a manufacturing error. But for $95.00 or so dollars, this vacuum has just replaced the one I spent three times as much for in the past, and is doing even a better job than expected. I particularly love the filter system, the attachments and the swivel ability of the hose.
Once again Panasonic makes a quality item and I don't have to work for the competition or even Panasonic to know true representation when I see it.
This Panasonic was just the thing I needed, and for a decent price.
~ Not very loud (slightly quieter than my upright Hoover Windtunnel), which is great when vacuuming a room full of hard surfaces (a.k.a., an echo-box)
~ Great cleaning power (considering its size, weight, and purpose; it pulls up way more dust than a Swiffer sweeper, and with much less effort)
~ Retractable cord (could be a little longer, but I have a lot of outlets in my house, and luckily I only have to change the cord to a new outlet once because of their wall locations in relation to the rooms I need to clean)
~ Edge grabber attachment (I never thought I would care, but this is great! It vacuums vertically, so it dusts your trim right next to the floor, where dust tends to kick up against the baseboard - also helps clean low wall vents)
~ Easy to clean (the filter detaches from the canister, and has a great little slider on it that you can use to dislodge the dust - and it includes a little brush to get the last bits the slider doesn't dislodge)
~ Transfers easily from hard surfaces to rugs (just keep on vacuuming, and change surfaces as many times as you like - no changing attachments)
~ Won't scratch hard surfaces (the vacuum head has padding on it, and a tiny roller-piece to help it move around easily)
~ Easily change attachments (it comes with a crevice tool, which I've used for my couch - quick to change out while the vacuum is still on)
~ Attractive, for a household appliance
~ Easy to carry up and down stairs for stair cleaning; easy to lift if you want to vacuum ceiling corners or tops of cabinets
~ If the cord were 20 feet instead of 16 feet, I'd be overjoyed - but honestly, it's not really a problem, just a feature of my upright that spoiled me.
~ Emptying the canister can be kind of annoying - it's awkward to open it without spilling the contents, but once you get used to its quirky styling, it's really no big deal.
~ Like some other reviewers mentioned, it does have a strange static attraction - I find myself vacuuming the vacuum on occasion when I notice my dog's hair clinging to it. But it obviously doesn't interfere with function, and it's not THAT much static (it doesn't shock you when you touch it, for instance) - so, not a major deficiency.
~ This thing has a considerable amount of power, but it's definitely better at hard surfaces (tile, laminate, hardwood, vinyl, etc) than carpeted ones. I clean my cat's "tree" (which has shag and low-pile carpet on it) and our flatwoven rugs with little trouble - but I imagine I'll bring the upright back upstairs at least a few times each year to really suck the dirt out.
Nothing to report here - I can't speak to longevity (yet), but it's been going strong for over a month now, and I see no signs of defects, loss of power, breakage, etc.
Overall, this is a great vacuum, and one I think will last me a long time - though, honestly, even if it only lasts five years, I'll be happy to fork out another benjamin to have this light, maneuverable, hard-surface cleaner back in my house.
UPDATE: I have to say, after several months of use, I am still very pleased with this vacuum's performance; however, as is the way of things, the "bugs" have come out of the woodwork with the passage of time. I can't say that any of my discoveries would classify as "bad" - most likely still in the "meh" category from above.
~ Its performance on carpets is really much lesser than on hard surfaces. I find that it can't pull pet hair and lodged debris out of flatwoven or shag-type carpeting. However, it does well enough that the carpet looks clean - I just know that I have to wash the rugs or bring up the upright vacuum to do a true deep cleaning on carpeted surfaces.
~ The container where all of the debris end up has some nooks and crannies that fill up with dust and hair, which does NOT impact the functionality - it just looks gross (it might be possible to clean these areas with some disassembly, but I'm not that brave).
~ The little rolling wheel that allows the floor attachment to roll over all types of surfaces is getting scratched from rolling over debris - so it's not a perfectly smooth piece of plastic anymore. I do not feel that it is damaging my floors, but there may come a time when it actually does do damage with its roughened texture.
~ The vacuum blows hot air out of the back of the machine while you vacuum (it has to go somewhere, I know), but that can mean that it blows dust, hair, etc around while you're cleaning, which obviously doesn't then produce the cleanest of environments when you're done. It's not enough to come close to creating the same mess that I'm trying to clean up, but it can be noticeable when things are particularly dusty.
I am still very satisfied with this vacuum for the purposes I originally outlined, and would recommend it for similar tasks without pause.
Now, with this new vacuum, I am excited about cleaning because first, it does the job wonderfully and secondly, light enough to lift on your one hand and third it works both on the floors and carpets, and forth, this vacuum can reach and clean under the bed, shelf, any corners with no problem.
My carpets are Persian and not deep carpet.
This is more than what I had expected of. I am thankful for the two reviews above I trusted before purchasing it. They are also correct!!
Anyone who is considering to buy a heavy-duty one, no need.
This is the only one you need in one household.

Only bad thing is small pieces on the dust filter that allow it to swivel out tend to break off.Read more
