3 Reasons For


At only 4.9 kilograms, the CVSH20V is fairly light compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuums that have been on the market for a similar time to the CVSH20V. The lightest vacuum of a comparable age and type to the CVSH20V is 1.2kg heavy and the heaviest is 17kg.

Chart Edit


The shallowest comparable spec vacuum that is a similar age to the CVSH20V is 140mm deep and the deepest is 570mm. At only 282 millimeters, the CVSH20V is quite shallow compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and type.

Chart Edit


With a height of only 226 millimeters, the Hitachi CVSH20V is one of the shorter vacuum cleaners of this spec and age amongst similar spec vacuums of this age. Across all the similar spec vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago the heights range from 110mm to 1,200mm, and the average height is 450mm.

5 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

This Hitachi vacuum received an expert rating of 60 out of 100 from gadgetguy.com.au. The expert review sites don't rate this vacuum that highly.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Hitachi CVSH20V does not have a brush tool, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other vacuums of a comparable spec and age to the CVSH20V also do not have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum to all the other vacuums with a brush tool and we think the Electrolux UltraSilencer, the Thomas Home Clean & Parquet (£460.34), or the Sebo Airbelt K3 Premium (£333.99) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Expensive Compared to Other Similar Spec Vacuums That Have Been On the Market for More Than Two Years

We thought that this Hitachi vacuum cleaner looks expensive for a vacuum cleaner of a similar age and spec. The price range of similar spec vacuums that have been on the market for more than two years is from £50 to £1,018.

Not Cordless

The CVSH20V is not cordless. Most of the other vacuum cleaners that were launched more than two years ago are also not cordless.

Chart Edit

Very Small Dust Capacity

The Hitachi CVSH20V has one of the smaller dust capacities (only 1.6 liters) amongst vacuum cleaners of this age. The dust capacities of high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that came out more than two years ago range from 0.3L to 55L, and the average dust capacity is 7.4L.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hitachi CVSH20V

Average Vacuum Suction

With a vacuum suction of 24.5 kilopascals, the Hitachi CVSH20V has a fairly average vacuum suction compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and type to the CVSH20V.

If you are looking for a higher vacuum suction then you might want to consider the Hitachi RNT1225 (£411.53) (24.8kPa), the Electrolux UltraSilencer (29kPa), or the Nilfisk Elite Superior (35kPa) which also has a higher rating.

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of the this vacuum is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on comparable spec vacuums that are a similar age to it.

It may also be worth considering one of the other Dry vacuums currently available including the GAS35 L SFC+ (£379.96), or the BGS5ZOODE both from Bosch or the Nilfisk GM80 Blow (£405.62) which has a better Rating.
