5 Reasons For

Bosch Has Good Vacuum Cleaner Reviews

On average Bosch vacuum cleaners have good ratings as do all vacuum cleaners manufactured by Bosch.


One Bosch BGS5POWER1 owner who reviewed the Bosch BGS5POWER1 said that it was well made. Amazon Customer wrote on Amazon “Its built in "Sensor Control" logic is totally illogical of what a vacuum should do” in their review of the Bosch BGS5POWER1 but despite that they rated it 1 stars.

Easy to Use

One customer thought the Bosch BGS5POWER1 was easy to use.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 71 decibels, the BGS5POWER1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for around the same time as the BGS5POWER1. Vacuum cleaners that were released around the same time as the BGS5POWER1 have noise levels of between 71dB and 89dB, and the average noise level is 80dB.

If you would consider a vacuum with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Bosch BGS5ZOOO3[plb_3119520_price] (75dB) which is also higher rated.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Like most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been available for more than a year, the Bosch BGS5POWER1 does not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit


The cheapeast similar spec vacuums that were launched more than a year ago that we found costs £54 and the most expensive costs £814. We think that this Bosch vacuum looks expensive for a vacuum cleaner of a similar type and age.

Very Heavy

When compared to other vacuums of this type and age that we have assessed the weight of, the BGS5POWER1's weight of 8.6 kilograms is one of the heaviest. Across all the vacuums that are a similar age to the BGS5POWER1 the weights range from 4.7g to 9.4kg.

We compared all the other 8.6kg heavy vacuum cleaners to this vacuum cleaner and we think the Bosch BGS5ZOOO3[plb_3119520_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Not Cordless

The BGS5POWER1 is not cordless, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that have been available for a similar time to the BGS5POWER1 are also not cordless.
