Lightweight, easy to move around. You need to follow the instructions to pull the cord out entirely as it gets very hot. I purchased this to replace an older (well made) Panasonic. This is a much more cheaply made version (no metal, very thin plastic). But, for the price, it does a fine job and I would recommend. Easy to assemble.
We have a Border Collie with LOTS of fur! Over the years I have gone through many vacuum cleaners. I normally spend about *** on a cleaner because I know that the life of it will be fairly short with the hair that I am constantly picking up with my dog. I also do not like bagless cleaners because the canister fills up too quickly and I do not like having to SEE what's coming up out of my carpet. I also understand that a BAG vacuum cleaner is healthier with regard to allergens, dander, etc. A little early to tell if this cleaner will last a year or more (I hope longer), but for the price it is great. Very happy with it. The vacuum cleaner was delivered in record time and despite what they say about women not getting excited about something such as a vacuum cleaner, in this case I was ecstatic! It makes my life that much easier and I like that.
I have dogs, live in West Texas (the dust bowl) and have allergies year round. My last vacuum cleaner was a Panasonic and it lasted for over 25 years and I wanted something reliable so naturally I chose another Panasonic. It has good suction, is lightweight and easy to manage and the onboard tools are handy. The automatic cord retrieval is an extra bonus. I got the vacuum bags also which are the same size I used in my old model and the double filtration is just what I needed for my allergies. By the way, the reason I bought my old Panasonic was because it was rated by Consumer Reports as one of the best models rated. I agree.
Great Vacuum especially for the $$$$. Would recommend this highly. Does a good job

I was am very happy with the new vacuum. I do like the handle on my older vacuum better, but this one will work fine. It does a good job of cleaning the carpet , I love the on board tools and the quick draw cord that is almost self winding. Just a touch of the pedal and the cord disappears into the vacuum. No more wresting with cords.

I previously owned a 12 amp upright Eureka Boss & a small Kenmore Canister Vacuum. The Eureka was noisy and broke quickly. The canister was not powerful and was messy to empty. I love the Panasonic MC-UG471 Upright Bagged Vacuum. I read other reviews and it seemed like a good fit for me. I love the color and it is quiet. It has a light on the front and the cord winds up into the machine which makes it easy to store. It works great. I have allergies and I read that bagged vacuums are the best for allergy sufferers. Thanks Overstock for the fast shipping and excellent condition of the item.
