Panasonic is a well known company that mostly specializes in consumer electronics, however it is also well known for its line of Panasonic vacuum cleaners. The same expertise that allows the company to produce excellent consumer electronics has helped it build an excellent line of upright and canister vacuums that will clean any surface in your home or office. In addition they also produce a line of commercial vacuum cleaners at a very reasonable price. Many people feel that Panasonic vacuum cleaners are some of the best vacuums on the market today.
Panasonic vacuum cleaners are know for being light weight and yet have strong suction power. One owner commented that he would love to have an Oreck but considering the price and its lightweight he chose a Panasonic instead to save money. He was totally happy with his decision. Panasonic vacuum cleaners feature many high tech features that are found on many more expensive vacuum cleaners. These include automated adjustments to meet any kind of floor covering. In addition to its dirt sensors which control suction levels Panasonic vacuum cleaners also have nice touches like an automated cord retrieval system.
Panasonic vacuum cleaners upright models feature both bag less and the more traditional bag models. All models have excellent filtration technology that includes micron and HEPA technology. This allows you to not only have a clean house but a healthy one as well. Panasonics canister vacuum cleaners add the versatility of being able to clean under beds, in corners and furniture as well a cleaning common floor surfaces. Panasonic vacuum cleaners are not considered heavy duty cleaners but are designed for light to medium cleaning best suited for an apartment or small house. None the less Panasonic vacuum cleaners are designed to do an excellent job of floor cleaning.
On the downside Panasonic vacuum cleaners are not considered to be very durable. Many of their plastic parts are fairly fragile and break easily. Many consumer reviews speak poorly of parts not fitting together correctly on new models. Probably the most troubling of all is the very poor customer service provided when things do go wrong. The one year warranty apparently does not cover many of the plastic parts. Many consumers complain that they cannot get any parts to fix their vacuums. However there are locations on the Internet that do handle Panasonic vacuum cleaner Parts.
In summary we would only recommend Panasonic vacuum cleaners to people who use them for light cleaning. They are lightweight vacuum cleaners that are easy to use. However due to the customer service problems they must be considered a throw away piece of cleaning equipment. That being when it breaks your best bet is throw it away and look for another vacuum cleaner rather than deal with Panasonics customer service. As a result we can only give Panasonic vacuum cleaners a two star rating.
