Avg. consumer rating = 78/100 

The Panasonic MC-CG467 Multi-Surface Lightweight Canister Vacuum Cleaner is a bagged vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter, and it is not too expensive.  It is also quite maneuverable and good on bare floors.  However ratings are only average and the power cord is a bit short.

The MC-CG467 does not use a dirt-container like many of the bagless machines today, but instead uses a disposable bag (according to Panasonic it uses a high-efficiency dust bag that collects and protects leakage of dust). There is a long-standing debate about whether bagged or bagless vacuum cleaners are better – bagged tend to make it easier to dispose of the collected dirt and it is cleaner to throw away the bag and put a new one in.  Bagless do not require purchasing and throwing away bags but it should be noted that they often have filters that need to be maintained or replaced and they rely on seals to prevent the dirt-container from leaking.

The Panasonic MC-CG467 has a three stage HEPA filtration system.  HEPA filtration is particularly popular with allergy sufferers.  HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Air and is a filter that removes 99.97% of all airborne particulates of 0.3 microns or larger that pass through it.  When considering a HEPA vacuum cleaner it is important that the unit passes ALL intake air through the HEPA filter prior to exhausting it – otherwise particulate matter is bypassing the filter and being introduced back into the surrounding environment. 

This Panasonic vacuum cleaner is a canister vacuum cleaner.  Canister vacuum cleaners are portable and easy to use and are well suited to cleaning hard surfaces.  They are typically less popular with those who have a lot of carpeting (uprights tend to be better for carpeting). Canisters often use a revolving brush system to help pickup dirt and dust from a carpet -– some models don’t have the brush and rely entirely on suction.  Many canister vacuum cleaners are bagged (like this one) but some are bagless.

The Panasonic MC-CG467 has a number of features.  It is equipped with an 11 amp motor (we do note that quite a few of the other vacuum cleaners these days opt for a more powerful 12 amp motor), recessed tool attachments on top of the canister for easy access during cleaning, a telescoping wand, full furniture guard, a 12-inch nozzle, three-position height adjustment, soft wheels for floor protection and two carry handles.  The cord is 17-feet which is touted as a feature, however several other vacuums we have reviewed have cords in excess of 30 feet.   It is lightweight (a popular feature with many consumers) and fairly compact measuring about 18”x14”x13”.  It carries a one-year limited warranty.
