5 Reasons For

Excellent Expert Reviews

Expert review website tweakers.net scored this high maximum input power vacuum cleaner 100 out of 100. If all the vacuum cleaners that have been around for more than two years are ranked by average expert review score then this vacuum cleaner is in the top 4%.

Has a Brush Tool

The Philips FC847 has a brush tool, which is unusual. Most of the other vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the FC847 do not have a brush tool.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other vacuums with a brush tool currently available including cheaper vacuum cleaners such as the Dyson DC52[plb_1731086_price].

Light

At only 4.5 kilograms, the Philips FC847 is fairly light compared to most of the other vacuums that have been around for more than two years.

Very Short

Vacuums of a similar age and type to the FC847 have heights of between 110mm and 1,300mm, and the average height is 430mm.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Very Short Cable Length

At only 5 meters, the Philips FC847 has a fairly short cable length compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that are a similar age to the FC847. The shortest cable length of high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago is 5m and the longest is 10m.

Chart Edit

Fairly Loud Noise Level

It may also be worth considering one of the other 83dB noise level vacuum cleaners currently available including cheaper vacuum cleaners such as the Dyson DC52[plb_1731086_price].

Not Cordless

The Philips FC847 is not cordless, although this is within the context that most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago are also not cordless.

Chart Edit

Only HEPA 10 HEPA Class

The Philips FC847 has a better HEPA class than most high maximum input power vacuums that were released around the same time as it. This Philips vacuum has a HEPA 10 HEPA class, whereas most high maximum input power vacuums that have been available for a comparable time to it have a HEPA 13 HEPA class.

5 Other reasons to consider the Philips FC847

Average Vacuum Suction

With a vacuum suction of 25 kilopascals, the Philips FC847 has a fairly standard vacuum suction compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many high maximum input power vacuums that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other Dry vacuums and we think the Dyson DC52[plb_1731086_price], and the Miele S8320 Total Care[plb_1823731_price] which is cheaper; or the Dyson DC19[plb_2011092_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Average Operating Radius

With an operating radius of 9 meters, the Philips FC847 has a relatively standard operating radius compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that have been around for around the same time as the FC847.

If this vacuum cleaner operating radius is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Dyson DC19[plb_2011092_price] (10m and higher rated); or the DC52[pl_1731086_price] (10m and cheaper), or the DC29[pl_2287595_price] (10m and cheaper) both from Dyson.

Average Suction Power

At 350 Watts, the Philips FC847 has a fairly typical suction power compared to most of the other similar spec vacuums that were released around the same time as the FC847.
