Comment:
This model was less than a year old and the connection between the hose extension and the power became loose and would cause intermittent power outages. Since it was under warranty, Panasonic instructed us to take it to a repair center, which we did. However, the repair center cannot get the part because Panasonic claims the part doesn't exist. Now, Panasonic is further stating that this was due to us plugging the parts in incorrectly! Funny thing: there is only one way to plug the parts into each other! We are now stuck with a vacuum that's a year old and doesn't work!

Comment:
i've owned this vacuum for a year. The carpet brush portion will not stand up on its own due to weight imbalance. The base is not heavy enough to hold up the wand, and after a few seconds it tips over. Watch your walls and anything valuable on a table! Very frustrating to have to lay it on the floor just to protect things in the house. Also, beginning at about six months every time we use it, it (apparently) overheats and shuts off. It takes four attempts to finish our small upstairs carpet area. Hardwood is fine, though. It seems to only occur on carpet, regardless of how small the pile is. I've tried cleaning all filters and putting the brush at a higher level in case the brush was working too hard against the carpet. No go. This cost too much money to be so useless. Otherwise the design is very nice with regard to attachments, and the ease with which the brush head comes off the wand.

Comment:
I purchased this in October 2013 due to CR BEST BUT vacuum of the year. This is a terrible machine. The dust bags and filters leak all over the inside of the machine. It loses function due to this and is the worst vacuum I've ever purchased. If you already have this, try to return while in warranty and don't always believe what you read here. It may have tested good initially, but does CONSUMERS REPORTS test after 2 months of use? I wish I had not even consulted CR on this purchase. Be warned.
