Panasonic Upright Vacuum Cleaner Pros and Cons
MSRP$269 This vacuum is more expensive than average and is priced in the top 29% of upright vacuums.
Premium Features7 This vacuum cleaner has an average number of premium features when compared to other upright vacuums.
Variable Suction ControlNo Power and suction levels cannot be adjusted when vacuuming diffferent surfaces such as delicate rugs, deep soiled carpets, or bare floors.
Detachable CanisterNo Detachable canisters are not a common feature, but they are handy for using your attachments on furniture, stairways, or narrow areas.
Noise Reduction Noise reduction features are designed into this vacuum which help make it quieter than standard vacuums and contribute to a more pleasant vacuuming experience.
Enhanced SteeringNo Uses standard steering which is generally constrained to pushing the vacuum back and forth across the flooring.
HEPA Filter True or absolute HEPA filters are best. They can capture 97.99% of particles down to 0.3 microns including dust, pet dander, and allergens.
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.
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.
Headlight Headlights are optional features, but they are nice for vacuuming in the evening, or trying to see in narrow areas or corners.
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.
Brushroll On / Off Having the option to turn off the brushroll as you transition from carpet to bare floors helps keep the dirt from being pushed away from the vacuum.
Automatic Height Adjustment The vacuum height is automatically adjusted as you transition between different carpet piles, or to rugs and bare floors.
Turbo Brush Includes a turbo brush attachment that helps remove pet hair, dust, and dirt from furniture, stairways, and window coverings.
