This Panasonic canister does not disappoint. It has excellent suction, is light weight, and moves around easily. With the Hepa filter, it is very clean and noise level is moderate. My grandson loves playing in the box. This is very good value for the price.
With our new home, we went with a a high pile carpet. Great carpet, but the powerhead that came with our Miele had no adjustable height and couldn't suction the carpet and make the piles stand up. With the adjustable height, I can now vacuum with ease and run the Miele at the highest suction level. Carpet looks great.
