Panasonic MC-4620 Bagless Straight-Suction Canister Vacuum

I don’t typically spend my Sunday mornings writing vacuum reviews, I’m usually out walking my dogs or cleaning up the yard. To tell you the truth, I just couldn’t pass up Breakfast with the Beetles this morning. A local SoCal radio station plays nothing but Beetles songs and brings out obscure facts about the band and their songs, a great radio show for the Jeopardy enthusiast! Anyway, since I’m just surfing the net at my computer anyway, I figured I might as well put up a vacuum review. At least I’ll be somewhat productive. Today I bring you a review of the Panasonic MC-4620 Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaner.

Just so you all know, I generally don’t like canister vacuum cleaners. I’ll take a well made Dyson Upright over a Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaner any day; I just feel I had to make that disclaimer before my loyal readers made a decision based on review. That said, the Panasonic Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaner is so-so.

The Panasonic MC4620 Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaner has a couple great qualities. First, it’s an excellent vacuum cleaner for hard flooring. It glides smoothly along wood, tile, or cement flooring and picks up just about everything except for egregiously large particles. Some vacuum cleaner manufacturers force users to continually buy new filters; the Panasonic MC4620 filter is washable. That means you can remove the filter, shake out the dust and remove the rest with running water. Just be sure it’s dry before you use it again, wet filters can cause problems for your vacuum cleaner.

My main complaint with the Panasonic MC4620 is that there are no beater bar attachments. If the MC4620 had a cleaning head that enabled users to clean carpets, I would be a lot more enthusiastic about this vacuum cleaner. Your Sensei likes to versatility, the Panasonic MC4620 is definitely not.

Final Analysis
I’m not going to give the Panasonic MC4620 one of my traditional star ratings. It’s practically impossible. This thing is designed to do one thing, and it does it extremely well, cleaning hard flooring and I highly recommend this vacuum cleaner. If you have carpets, I suggest checking out some of my other vacuum cleaner reviews. The Hoover Tempo Widpeath is an excellent vacuum cleaner in the same price range.
