The Panasonic 458 was bought approx. 2 years ago, and has been value for money. It does clean up to the edge of the carpet, and picks up dirt superbly, and for the price is definitely a good buy. It is a resonable weight, and looks good too.Panasonic is not the first name people equate with a vacuum cleaner, however they have got things right first time. We use air fresheners with ours, although to be fair the Panasonic does not leave an unpleasant smell like some cleaners do. There is not a huge range of additional gizmo's with the cleaner, but enough of the basics to use.
