1 Reason For

Fairly Large Dust Capacity

The dust capacities of vacuum cleaners of a comparable type and age to the K 278 range from 0.3L to 83L, and the average dust capacity is 5.8L. With a dust capacity of 4.5 liters, the King K 278 has one of the larger dust capacities amongst high maximum input power vacuums of this age.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago do not have a brush tool. The King K 278 is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Very Low Vacuum Suction

The King K 278 has a fairly low vacuum suction (only 23 kilopascals) compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that are a similar age to the K 278. Across all the vacuum cleaners of this age and type the vacuum suctions range from 16kPa to 250kPa.

If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner with a higher vacuum suction then you might want to look at the NT 35-1 Tact (£302.81) (25.4kPa), the NT 35-1 (£289.00) (25.4kPa), or the NT 65-2 AP (£828.59) (25.4kPa) all from Kärcher.

Not Cordless

The King K 278 is not cordless, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago are also not cordless.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Cord Length

With a cord length of only 5 meters, the King K 278 has a fairly short cord length compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this type and age. The cord lengths of vacuums of this type and age range from 2.1m to 15m.

3 Other reasons to consider the King K 278

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many vacuums that were released around the same time as it.

If the cleaning type of this King vacuum is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Polti Vaporetto Action (£59.00) (Wet).

Average Suction Power

At 300 Watts, the King K 278 has a fairly standard suction power compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and spec to the K 278.

If you want a vacuum with a higher suction power then you might want to look at the VCDC15 (£92.74) (340W), or the VC15 (340W) both from Samsung.
