Panasonic Vacuum Reviews

Panasonic Corporation is based in Osaka, Japan but it has a large presence in the US through the Panasonic Corporation of North America. The company has been in business for almost 100 years and is now one of the world’s largest electronics groups. With respect to vacuum cleaners, Panasonic presently sells both upright and canister residential units and upright commercial units. They don’t seem as popular as some of the other brands but one upright made the cut in our best vacuums under $200 list.

Panasonic OptiFlow Canister Vacuum Cleaner, MC-CG917


Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

This is the next generation of the OptiFlow vacuum from Panasonic and most consumers like it.  This unit gets better consumer ratings than the previous model.  Owners report that the new OptiFlow has good suction, attachments that work well, and that it is very easy to switch from bare floors to carpet mode.  Some folks feel that it is a little heavy however and that the edge cleaning ability is limited.



Panasonic MC-CG902 Canister Vacuum Cleaner


Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The consumer ratings and comments for the Panasonic MC-CG902 Canister Vacuum Cleaner indicate a fairly high level of consumer satisfaction.  This vacuum was also recently given a best buy rating from a popular consumer magazine.  Folks that use this machine like the quality attachments, retractable power cord and the fact that it is good on hard surfaces however some lament that it does not come with a handheld turbine attachment for cleaning pet hair from stairs or upholstery.

Panasonic MC-UL915 Vacuum Review


Avg. consumer rating = 78/100 

The Panasonic MC-UL915 is quite recent, having been introduced in April 2010.  This is a bagless upright with a long power cord and HEPA filtration. Consumers generally like the machine but ratings are not as high as some other uprights. The MC-UL915 is a feature-rich machine that is usually available for just over 200USD.

Panasonic MC UG471 Upright Vacuum Cleaner Review


Avg. consumer rating = 87/100 

The Panasonic MC UG471 is a fairly basic machine that is not too expensive - between $100 and $160 at most stores.  But it does have most of what counts:  strong suction, HEPA filter, and a range of tools.  It is also noted to be reasonably quiet and very good on carpet (less-so on bare floors).  Consumers are giving it very good grades.

Avg. consumer rating = 76/100
