Never again


The vacuum does a very good job. I had no problems with Newegg whatsoever.

After 30 days the swivel assembly broke, after spending an hour trying to speak with a HUMAN!!! I finally gave up and got the number from a non panasonic website...imagine that. Once i did speak to a person the nearest repair center was 70 miles away...

Panasonic MC-CG917


As much as I love my new vacuum, had I known that I would have to order all the supplies for this vacuum, than I would have made a different choice. Also, dealing with the company itself has been absolutely crazy. No return calls after being told they...

The vacuum is awesome. It works better than any vacuum I have owned.

The problem is that all the local stores do not carry the vacuum bags, belts or filters for this vacuum. Plan to have to order everything that you will need. Oh and by the way, Panasonic doesn't even list the motor filter as an item at their website...

awesome vacuum


Brought it base on 4 1/2 star review on a popular website(newegg won't allow competitor's name posted... A__zon) , but they were out of stock and would take 2-3 weeks to ship. Newegg was only few dollar more after tax and shipping. It is quieter than...

quite motor, great suction, easy to use

dragging the canister can be a pain sometimes. It doesn't always go where you like it to go. Just have to get use to it.

Poor bag installaion


" I purchased this vacuum in Dec 2015 at a great price, to be used primarily in my family room where I have a pellet stove. (My primary vacuum is a Rainbow and it doesn't do well with ash and wood dust). I was impressed with the silence of the...

Inexpensive , Easy to use , very strong suction and airflow , quiet opeation

Did not meet expectations , very poor dust sealing. , definitely not a "hepa" machine

Great vacuum for the price


" I bought this a couple years ago, and haven't had any problems with it. It does a great job cleaning and even the spinning brush attachment works as expected whereas it doesn't on other vacuums I've tried. My only wish is that the power head would...

Durable , Exceeded expectations

Great vacuum for the money


" I would have given this vacuum five stars except for the fact that the floor brush is cumbersome. It has very little flexibility and the few number of bristles on the bottom make it necessary to use it at an angle. It has plenty of suction and is...

Compact , Convenient , Easy to use

not enough bristles on the floor brush.

Good Vacuum but needs some product updates


" Purchased this vacuum for a new house. Read reviews from various sites and this product was well received. I got lucky with a sale over Christmas and ordered. Vacuum is easy to assemble out of the box. Used it very hard the first few days to clean...

Durable , Convenient , Easy to use

too short crevice tool , too short vacuum hose.

Optiflow 360° Swivel Canister Vacuum MC-CG917


" Overall excellent product, just wish the upholstery cleaning attachment had a bit more power. Brush driven by suction alone. Would prefer it to be powered. But still very satisfied with the vacuum. "

Much better than I expected


" I needed to replace my old Panasonic canister vacuum with something that would remove pet fur from my carpets and furniture. I love this vacuum because it does just that. The dust bag holder has a handle on it so you can remove the basket with the...
