Panasonic Bagless Pros and Cons
MSRP$139 This vacuum is less expensive than average and is priced in the bottom 20% of canister vacuums.
Premium Features3 This vacuum cleaner has a below average number of premium features and ranks in the bottom 12% of canister vacuums.
Variable Suction Control Variable suction control allows you to increase power as needed on deep, dirty carpets, or lower the suction when vacuuming delicate rugs and bare floors.
Finger-Tip ControlsNo Vacuum controls are a little less convenient to operate since they're not located at the top of the vacuuming wand within finger-tip reach.
Noise ReductionNo Special noise reduction features have not been incorporated and noise levels are typical of your standard vacuum cleaner.
HEPA FilterNo Standard filters do a satisfactory job for many people, but they can't trap allergens and pet dander that often bother allergy sufferers.
Absorb OdorsNo Charcoal filters are not common, but if you're a cat or dog owner, they do help absorb odors out of the carpet.
Auto Cord Rewind Auto-rewind is a convenient feature that allows you to rewind the cord with just the press of a button. It saves time and keeps your vacuum neat and organized.
Wand StorageNo Without onboard wand storage it takes a little additional effort to keep the vacuum organized and securely stored when not using it.
Special FeaturesNo Like most vacuums, this vacuum cleaner does not have any special features that are unique to this brand.
Indicator LightsNo Does not have indicator lights to alert you when required maintenance operations need attention such as filter or bag changing.
Edge CleaningNo Without edge cleaners, greater care must be taken to ensure room edges are vacuumed along the baseboard. Crevice tools in particular can help keep the edges dirt-free.
Longer Cord LengthNo Cord length is less than 25 feet and may require more frequent outlet changing depending on the size and layout of the rooms in your home.
HeadlightNo It's not a must-have feature, but if you vacuum in the evenings, or have a darker home interior, consider other models that come with a headlight.
Longer WarrantyNo This vacuum is backed by a one-year warranty. Two or more years is desirable, but one-year is standard for the industry.
Motorized Brush-Roll A motorized brush-roll helps agitate the carpet and loosen dirt so that the vacuum can suction up the debris more effectively.
Turbo BrushNo Does not include a turbo brush attachment that helps vacuum pet hair, dirt, and dust from furniture, stairways, or window coverings.
Weight (lbs)10.1 This vacuum cleaner is lighter than average and ranks in the bottom 9% of canister vacuums.
User Reviews3.5 Panasonic Bagless - Based on user reviews, this vacuum is rated lower than average by 10 users and ranks in the bottom 18% of canister vacuums.
