This vaccum has a very good suction, but it's almost too much. It needs a low-high setting for suction control. Attachments are nice but because it sucks too hard, it is very hard to use those attachments. The hose is too long and sagging from the unit way too much. It dosen't stay on the unit while vaccuming. On the other hand, it dosen't extend to the full length when the power is on because it is sucked too hard and contracted to the shortest position...so there is no benefit of having a long hose. You can't reach far anyway. You are holding the vacum cleaner and trying hard to pull the hose away from it. I wouldn't use this to clean draperies even it comes with a brush attachment. It will probably suck hard and rip them. This is not the all-in-one vaccum cleaner but it's a good one for cleaning floors.

Who ever designed this vacume never tried to use the atachments and the same can be said for the company that sold it to me. You can't move more than a step away and the thing falls over I have another vacume of a different manufacture and the hose comes off the lower part of the machinre not the middle.The panasonic is so poorley designed I don't know how it ever got on the market!!!!!! As an upright machine we found it to be satisfactory,no better or worse than any othe upright.

    Comments:

    Love the suction power, and retractable cord. Very easy to use to clean floors. I don't like using the hose and attachments much, but that kind of gets into the canister vac vs upright debate. This vacuum is a very convenient upright.

                My Panasonic I had for 25 yrs started to have some minor problems so I deceided it was time for a new one. This model was the closest to the one I had. It works great and has lots of power, I still have my old one can't seem to part with it.

                    Love Panasonic products and clean my house daily, because of O.C.D. and believe me, this is the best. I have used or owned every brand and every price, and this one is surprisingly a great product at a great price. I have a 4 year old boy and 5 cats, and have used this vacuum to clean daily and it still works great after two years. The attachments are awesome too, you will love this vacuum.

                      Comments:

                      About 30 years ago I needed a vacuum and Panasonic Vacuums were just hitting the market with dealers. They were light, easy to open, and clean. The beater bar lifts up so the brushes don't dig into the rug when you use the tools. My only problem is that I wish there was a complete set of tools that I could use for it. Anyway, that vacuum is still in use, not in my home, but we use it with our cleaning company for offices and public places. 30 YEARS OF SERVICE AND STILL GOING. LOOKING FOR A NEW ONE FOR INSIDE MY HOME.

                          Been using this vacuum for a couple years. Have no problem with how it works. Just have to change the bags when needed. But having that cord reel, it is the greatest option ever on this tool. Let's face it, nobody ever wants to spool up the cord when they are done. Some members of my family used to come up with some very creative ways to put away the old vacuum. Usually that meant taking the cord and wrapping it around in some strange ways. They no longer do that.

                              I have had this vacuum for two weeks now and use it 5 mornings for 1 hour each at the church I work at and this is an excellent vacuum cleaner for the price and the quality. I am thinking about ordering one for my house. It looks really good and has a good solid feel to it when you push it.

Just make sure EVERYTHING you would like to keep is nowhere in sight when using this vaccuum! I love the self reeling cord! All in all a great purchase!

                                        I bought this to use on both carpet and hard floors. I was told my old U Panasonic bags would fit this but I can't make them work. The switch on the front to change to carpet vs. bare floors is really hard to switch and feels like it is going to break easily. My switch is kind of crooked. I love retractable cord. I hope it holds up.

                                            This vaccum has a very good suction, but it's almost too much. It needs a low-high setting for suction control. Attachments are nice but because it sucks too hard, it is very hard to use those attachments. The hose is too long and sagging from the unit way too much. It dosen't stay on the unit while vaccuming. On the other hand, it dosen't extend to the full length when the power is on because it is sucked too hard and contracted to the shortest position...so there is no benefit of having a long hose. You can't reach far anyway. You are holding the vacum cleaner and trying hard to pull the hose away from it. I wouldn't use this to clean draperies even it comes with a brush attachment. It will probably suck hard and rip them. This is not the all-in-one vaccum cleaner but it's a good one for cleaning floors.

                                                I've only had these Panasonic vacuums and won't buy another brand soley for the QuickDraw feature. This is my third one. The price was great and overall this one is as expected except for the body casing. It is the cheapest looking flimsy plastic, I was actually shocked when I opened the box. My other two had much harder thicker plastic bodies. Besides that disappointment, all the other features work good and the suction is as good as my other vacuums, so overall I'm happy with this purchase.

                                                    This is my third Panasonic. Used about 25 times on one area rug and an entry mat. 7 out of 10 times the bag breaks mid use and the dust goes all over. Have used after market and Panasonic bags both U-6 and U-12 hoping for extra strength. No cloth bags available. I like the suction and the convenience of the wand and attachments. I like the weight and maneuverability. I liked the price. But I cannot continue to use a vacuum that leaves the house dirtier than when I started. Discard or repair, both involve an expense that should be unnecessary for a new cleaner.

                                                        Who ever designed this vacume never tried to use the atachments and the same can be said for the company that sold it to me. You can't move more than a step away and the thing falls over I have another vacume of a different manufacture and the hose comes off the lower part of the machinre not the middle.The panasonic is so poorley designed I don't know how it ever got on the market!!!!!! As an upright machine we found it to be satisfactory,no better or worse than any othe upright.
