5 Reasons For

Easy to Use

Three Hoover SteamJet SSW1700 reviewers who reviewed the Hoover SteamJet SSW1700 wrote that it was easy to use. Naomi B. said in her review of the Hoover SteamJet SSW1700 “Great product, easy to use and clean out” and gave this vacuum cleaner a rating of 5 stars. P.b mentioned in their review of this vacuum cleaner “Is so easy to use, brings tilied”.

Reasonably Priced

One Hoover SteamJet SSW1700 reviewer mentioned in their reviews that this vacuum cleaner was good value for money. D. Shaw said on Amazon “Excellent value for money”.

Robust

One Hoover SteamJet SSW1700 reviewer who purchased it thought it was well made. Three years ago Susan Watson said on Amazon “This model is sturdy, well built and easy to use”.

Hoover Has Good Vacuum Reviews

We looked at average ratings for each vacuum cleaner manufacturer and found that whilst Hoover has good average reviews across all vacuum cleaners, Hoover has unexceptional reviews specifically for its high maximum input power vacuums.

Light

Across all the high maximum input power vacuums that are a similar age to the SteamJet SSW1700 the weights range from 5.7g to 110kg, and the average weight is 7.1kg. At only 3.7 kilograms, the SteamJet SSW1700 is fairly light compared to most of the other similar spec vacuums that were released more than two years ago.

6 Reasons Against

Poor User Reviews

On average, SteamJet SSW1700 owners rated this vacuum cleaner 62%. This means that users really don't rate this high maximum input power vacuum cleaner very highly.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most comparable spec vacuum cleaners that were launched around the same time as the SteamJet SSW1700 do not have a brush tool. The SteamJet SSW1700 is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

Other vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool that you might want to look at include the Grundig VCC 7070[plb_1886681_price], or the Miele Complete C3 PowerLine[plb_2476480_price] which is also higher rated.

Poor Design

One person said in their reviews that the Hoover SteamJet SSW1700 was not good looking. Three years ago Susan Watson said on Amazon “As the sweeper mode is pretty ineffectual, I have to hoover before using the steam cleaner” in her review of the Hoover SteamJet SSW1700 but in spite of that she rated it 80 out of 100.

Quite Small Dust Capacity

The SteamJet SSW1700 has a very small dust capacity (only 0.7 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that came out around the same time as the SteamJet SSW1700. Across all the high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for a comparable time to the SteamJet SSW1700 the dust capacities range from 0.3L to 83L.

Chart Edit

Very Small Water Tank Capacity

The water tank capacity of similar spec vacuums that were released more than two years ago range from 0.45L to 30L. At only 0.7 liters, the SteamJet SSW1700 has a fairly small water tank capacity compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Like most of the other comparable spec vacuums that were launched more than two years ago, the SteamJet SSW1700 is not cordless.

If you would prefer a vacuum cleaner that is cordless then you might also want to consider the Grundig VCC 7070[plb_1886681_price] which also has a higher rating.
