4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Like most of the other vacuums that have been on the market for more than a year, the BGS5331 does not have a brush tool.

There are a number of other vacuums which also have a brush tool that you might also want to consider including the Philips FC9725[plb_2403570_price], the Hoover RU70_RU31[plb_2999882_price], or the Numatic Harry Hoover HDH201-12[plb_3799719_price] which also has a higher rating.

Heavy

The weights of vacuum cleaners of a similar type and age to the BGS5331 range from 5.2g to 13kg. The Bosch BGS5331 is very heavy (8.6 kilograms) compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and type.

If you are not worried about having a heavier weight then you might want to consider the Hoover Dust Manager DM71DM02[plb_2911171_price] (8.3kg), or the Numatic Henry Hoover HVR200-12[plb_2901788_price] (8.4kg) which also has a higher rating.

Not Cordless

The BGS5331 is not cordless, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that came out more than a year ago are also not cordless.

If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner that is cordless then you might want to look at the VWR514SA[pl_3093198_price], or the VR94070NCAQ[pl_3109240_price] both from LG or the Miele Swing H1 EcoLine - SAAJ1[plb_3099816_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Heavy Weight Without Accessories

The weights without accessories of vacuums that have been available for a comparable time to the BGS5331 range from 3kg to 6.7kg. At 6.7 kilograms, the BGS5331 has a very heavy weight without accessories compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that came out around the same time as the BGS5331.

4 Other reasons to consider the Bosch BGS5331

Average Operating Radius

At 11 meters, the BGS5331 has a pretty standard operating radius compared to most of the other vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the BGS5331.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other 11m operating radius vacuums and we think because of it's better review score, the Hoover AT70 ATSG011[plb_3057688_price], and the Miele Complete C3 Silence[plb_2437121_price] is also worth considering.

If this low maximum input power vacuum operating radius is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Siemens VSZ7330[plb_3250434_price] (12m and higher rated), the Bosch BGL8334[plb_3287119_price] (12m and higher rated), or the AEG AUS8230[plb_3288865_price] (12m and higher rated).

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many vacuum cleaners that have been around for more than a year.

Alternative Dry vacuums currently available which you might also want to look at include the Philips FC9725[plb_2403570_price], the Thomas Crooser Parquet Plus[plb_3018510_price], or the Siemens VS06B120[plb_3106570_price] which has better reviews.

If the cleaning type of this vacuum is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Powermax VRS17W[pl_2928149_price] (Wet), or the Powermax VRS18W[pl_2928150_price] (Wet) both from VAX or the Hoover SE71SZ04001[plb_3179031_price] (Wet) which is also higher rated.

Average Noise Level

At 74 decibels, the Bosch BGS5331 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 74dB noise level vacuums to this vacuum cleaner and we think because of it's better review score, the Samsung F600[plb_2848957_price] is also worth considering.
