4 Reasons For

Bosch Has Good Vacuum Cleaner Reviews

Bosch vacuums have an average rating of 87 out of 100, which is in the top 35% of all vacuum manufacturers that we have analysed.

Very Quiet Noise Level

At only 66 decibels, the BGS5SIL66A has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec vacuums that came out more than two years ago. The noise levels of vacuums of this type and age range from 57dB to 87dB, and the average noise level is 75dB.

Other vacuums with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Numatic PPH320A (£231.39) (67.1dB), or the Sebo Airbelt K3 Premium (£333.99) (65dB).

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Bosch BGS5SIL66A does not have a brush tool, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for around the same time as the BGS5SIL66A also do not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit


The weights of high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been available for more than two years range from 1.2kg to 17kg, and the average weight is 6.8kg. The BGS5SIL66A is quite heavy (8.6 kilograms) compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuums that have been around for a similar time to the BGS5SIL66A.

Vacuum cleaners with a heavier weight that might be worth looking at include the Sebo BS 46 Comfort (£359.00) (8.5kg).

Very Heavy Weight Without Accessories

3 Other reasons to consider the Bosch BGS5SIL66A

Average Operating Radius

With an operating radius of 11 meters, the BGS5SIL66A has a relatively typical operating radius compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and spec.

We compared all the other 11m operating radius vacuums to this vacuum cleaner and we think because of it's better review score, the Thomas Aqua+ Pet & Family (£249.00) is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a vacuum with a bigger operating radius then you might want to consider the Metabo ASR 25 L SC (£244.00) (11.2m), the Nilfisk Power Cleaner (11.2m), or the Electrolux UltraSilencer (12m).
