Good Brand

On average Bosch vacuums have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all vacuums produced by Bosch.

The cleaning type of the this vacuum is Dry, which is the most frequently supported cleaning type on vacuums that were released more than a year ago.

The BGS5SILM2 has increased in price by £19.42 in the last 40 days.

Expensive for a Vacuum of This Age and Type

We think this vacuum cleaner looks expensive compared to other vacuums of this type and age. We checked 50 vacuums of this type and age and they range in price from £50 to £814.

Not Cordless

The Bosch BGS5SILM2 is not cordless, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been available for around the same time as the BGS5SILM2 are also not cordless.

Vacuums which are cordless that might be worth looking at include the Hoover BH52120 which is also cheaper.
