"A mobile and energy efficient vacuum with a fantastic price" - That from ExpertReviews.com - priced at £160. More than half that price at B&M!

Priced on Amazon at £117, and £150 from TowerDirect and SonicDirect, this seems a brilliant price!

Used it tonight in place of a 10 year old Henry, and the dust/dirt it's collected is unbelievable. Looks pretty good too as far as vacuums go!

COMES WITH A PROMOTIONAL PARTS AND LABOUR 6 YEAR WARRANTY

Does this have a warranty?

It comes with Panasonic's promotional 6 year parts and labour warranty (if bought before 31/03/2014) - you just visit the below website and upload a photo of your receipt!

these things suck!

Mediocre review at £160, http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/gadgets/1305367/panasonic-mc-ul426-eco-max

So likely very good at this price. Wonder how it compares to the ~£100 dyson refurbs that have been about!

I've been very impressed with mine. I have no experience of Dyson's to be fair. At £70 it's certainly a good deal.

Sounds good, need a new vacuum so seems a great deal! Only issue could be the T&Cs for the warranty say it had to be a Panasonic Authorised dealer - however it is advertised on the B&M site for the 6-year warranty too, so some comeback if Panasonic had some issue with the claim.

I've submitted my claim for the warranty, so wait and see. I hadn't read about the "authorised dealer" condition, but as you say, B&M are advertising the 6 year warranty, so I'll be taking a screenshot of that on their website..

The Furbys seem a good buy too at £29.99.

I've got this hoover. It's incredible and definitely worth this price and more.

But it's definitely not a hoover.

Got mine today. Thanks Vandutch!

Got it out of the box but yet to try it out. The build quality certainly seems on par with any Dyson I've seen.

I've also registered for the warranty, hope it goes through!

Oh dear. So are you going to return it then?

We have had one of these for a couple of years.

Its very good at its job, maybe a little heavy BUT so far we have had 2 new motors in it. Both times they have simply burned out.

There is no problem getting it repaired, you simply take or send it to an authorised repairer and it takes 2 / 3 to repair

They appear to be the specs for the lesser MC-UL424 model.
I might pop out and see if can pick one of these up. I've got a 10 year old Panasonic at the moment but there's a problem with the brush inside which is supposed to be blown around constantly clearing one of the filters. One of its 'sails' has broken off though so I don't think it gets pushed with enough force to push all the dust off if you pick up a lot at once. Other than that it's been a good machine.

Yeah, the B&M listing is for the inferior model, I saw a comment on another thread from a user whose B&M had both vacuums for sale, so make sure you get the ul426 if it's there.

My store had both models. I didn't realise the white one was 1200w and slightly lighter until I looked at the box. I plumped for the black one anyway.

I tried it this morning, couldn't believe how much it picked up. The suction was that powerful it was lifting an old carpet up! Very impressed for the money. I just hope the 6 year warranty applies still!

Just been and bought one to replace my Dyson. I had always been happy with them but for the price and warranty this was a no brainer. It's fab! Lighter and powerful - I just need to get to grips with all the parts now :-)

They only had the MC-UL424 at Team Valley.

got one from B&M Chadwell heat, there were 3 left.

I hope that the 6 yr warranty is accepted.

I´ve tried it and works good

But it's definitely not a hoover.

there's always one......

Thanks, bought one from Northfield branch this afternoon, have printed website so if any issues with warranty have some come back with B&M.

bought 1 from liscard branch quite a few left, mum is very pleased with it.

How people find these deals, I will never know......

Just in case anyone is unclear, the model listed on the B&M website, and quoted as having a 6 year warranty is the lesser model. B&M have no information about the guarantee for this model on their website, and as Panasonic make a reference to 'authorised dealers', there is certainly no guarantee regarding the guarantee, so to speak!
However, as the guarantee for the lesser model implies they could be an authorised dealer, making the claim seems a good punt!

Even if the 6 year guarantee doesn't apply it's still a decent purchase :-)

Awesome! Head added thanks :-)
