Easy to Use

One person who purchased it thought it was easy to use.

Fairly Large Dust Capacity

The VC2512L has one of the larger dust capacities (25 liters) amongst comparable spec vacuum cleaners of this age. Vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for a similar time to the VC2512L have dust capacities of between 0.25L and 70L.

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The VC2512L does not have a brush tool. Most of the other vacuum cleaners of this age and spec also do not have a brush tool.

We compared all the other vacuums which also have a brush tool to this vacuum and we think the Miele Comp[plb_2938537_price] which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Not Cordless

Chart Edit

Very Small Dry Dust Capacity

Across all the vacuums that have been available for more than a year the dry dust capacity range from 11L to 34L. The VC2512L has a fairly small dry dust capacity (only 11.5 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuums that came out around the same time as the VC2512L.
