Comment:
Before I detail some of my entries...Have purchased Panasonic Vacuums for nearly 3 decades. Low Clearance entry pertains to power head accessibility under furniture, etc. I have a Panasonic canister purchased in 1992 (still performs well) and this current model is a few inches less. Height Settings entry has to do with detailed, but important height adjustments. In my case, the X-Low and Low settings are key. For cut pile, X-Low is key. But on occasion, some that are on carpet, will get pushed, instead of suctioned. Switching to Low is a quick fix. Also, I have some foreign very tight weave are carpets. Since the density is so stringent. I need to use Low, rather than X-Low. What occurs is a hopping scenario, due to not enough air flow. However, using the higher setting does not affect pet hair (I have a cat) removal. Bags, Belts, etc. refers to easy access and better price availability. Also, I saw an entry in the reviews concerning the pricey cloth bag (sometimes called diapers) that are available. The standard C-5 bag (that comes with this vacuum) are a standard 2-ply vacuum bag. They're good bags. However, if you have severe allergy and/or asthma issues. The cloth bags are a big plus, even though they are pricey in comparison.Attachment Option refers to Panasonic's flexibility when looking for additional or replacement of attachments. There are many various generic or name brand parts that are compatible with Panasonic vacuums. This presents many options in connection with finding better price and access. I entered Emissions as my only Cons entry. But, with a solution to a few of these emission issues. There are two locations, that I've discovered. But, also easily corrected. I noticed after a few vacuuming sessions that dust was accumulating on the power head. The cause is a gap in the plastic clear diffuser that covers the location of the light bulb. Solution: I use a cut to length clear 2-1/2 to 3 inch wide piece of packing tape to cover the breech. No more dust, no more air leakage. This takes care of the unwanted emissions on the power head location and puts the air flow where it's supposed to be, in the vacuuming performance.... The HEPA Filter could be better as well. But, by just adding a few cut to size pieces of fiber like filters used in registers on forced air heat/air con type home systems. They're inexpensive, and are available at the DIY home stores in the heating/plumbing location of the stores. In my experience, the ones purchased have come in 4x12 inch pieces, with 10-12 in a package. These quick fixes do NOT cause performance loss and/or motor overheating. The two identical models that are in my home, were bought in January 2012. Sorry for the long read. But, I always endeavor to help (detailed, as you have seen in this entry) others with actual experiences. It's nice to find solutions to problematic issues with a simple and/or inexpensive method... Thanks for reading

Comment:
This vacuum is so small, yet so powerful. It's swivel action makes it highly maneuverable around my small house. I use it primarily on my hardwood and vinyl flooring, but do the rugs as well. NEVER SWEEP AGAIN. It's very light, I'm 8 months pregnant and have no problems using this vacuum. I've had it for over 4 years and it has worked perfect the entire time. Also, the retractable cord still works like the day it was purchased. The various nozzles that come with it all work great, and fit in the vacuum space so neatly. THIS IS A GREAT PURCHASE.

Comment:
Panasonic builds all of the Kenmore models, and they sell for less than Kenmore. I've had no reliability problems. The replacement HEPA bags are expensive, but a far better choice than paper.
