11 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The Philips FC872 has a brush tool, which is unusual. Most of the other vacuum cleaners that were launched more than two years ago do not have a brush tool.

There are a number of alternative vacuums with a brush tool currently available that you might want to consider including the Miele Compact C2 Allergy[plb_2538534_price], or the Siemens VSQ8SIL66A[plb_2769339_price] which has better reviews.

Quite Big Operating Radius

With an operating radius of 11 meters, the Philips FC872 has a fairly big operating radius compared to most of the other vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the FC872. The average operating radius of low maximum input power vacuums that have been around for around the same time as the FC872 is 10m, and the operating radii range from 1.1m to 27m.

Alternative 11m operating radius vacuum cleaners currently available that you might also want to consider include the Philips FC9197[plb_2283588_price] which is cheaper.

Vacuums with a bigger operating radius that might also be worth looking at include the Siemens VSQ8SIL66A[plb_2769339_price] (12m) which also has a higher rating.

The vacuum suctions of vacuum cleaners of a comparable spec and age to the FC872 range from 11kPa to 17kPa, and the average vacuum suction is 13kPa.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Dust Capacity

At 5 liters, the Philips FC872 has a quite large dust capacity compared to most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been available for more than two years. Across all the low maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago the dust capacities range from 0.1L to 100L.

3 Reasons Against

Only Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on similar spec vacuums that have been around for around the same time as it.

We compared this vacuum to all the other Dry vacuums and we think the Philips FC9197[plb_2283588_price], and the Bosch BGS5ALL1[plb_2663105_price] which is cheaper; or the Miele Compact C2 Allergy[plb_2538534_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Not Cheap

The price range of vacuums of this age and spec is from £51 to £611. We think that this vacuum cleaner looks expensive compared to other vacuums of this age and spec.

Not Cordless

Most vacuums of a similar type and age to the FC872 are not cordless. The Philips FC872 is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

If you would prefer a vacuum cleaner that is cordless then you might also want to consider the Bissell MultiReach 18V Cordless[plb_2981477_price].

Average Noise Level

The Philips FC872 has a relatively typical noise level (78 decibels) compared to most of the other vacuums that have been available for around the same time as the FC872.

Vacuum cleaners with a louder noise level that might be worth considering include the Philips FC9197[plb_2283588_price] (75dB and cheaper).

Average Weight

At 5 kilograms, the Philips FC872 has a relatively standard weight compared to most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that came out around the same time as the FC872.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 5kg heavy vacuums currently available including cheaper vacuums such as the Philips FC9197[plb_2283588_price].
