6 Reasons Against

Not Robust

Some customers wrote in their reviews that the product was not strong and durable. Peccavi mentioned in their review of the VAX Astrata C90-AS-B-AS “Deduct one star for lack of overall robustness”. Steve Fuller wrote in his review of this vacuum cleaner “The foot switches dont look rugged, i really cannot moan as i only paid £25 for this refurbished model which was brand new, now the good points”.

Not Good in Terms of Size

One customer who reviewed the VAX Astrata C90-AS-B-AS considered that it was not heavy and bulky. George said in his VAX Astrata C90-AS-B-AS review “It is heavy and noisy”.

Very Low Suction Power

Across all the vacuum cleaners of this age and spec the suction power range from 170W to 2,200W. With a suction power of only 240 Watts, the Astrata C90-AS-B-AS has a quite low suction power compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as the Astrata C90-AS-B-AS.

If you would prefer a vacuum with a higher suction power then you might want to consider the Rowenta RH7921WF[plb_3822768_price] (750W), or the Polti VAPORETTO PURE[plb_3345045_price] (1,500W) which is also higher rated.

Not Cordless

The Astrata C90-AS-B-AS is not cordless, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec vacuums that have been around for more than two years are also not cordless.

If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner that is cordless then you might also want to consider the Air Force Extreme 24V[pl_1715949_price], or the RH8758[pl_1795615_price] both from Rowenta or the Electrolux T8[plb_1810491_price] which also has a higher rating.

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many high maximum input power vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative Dry vacuum cleaners currently available including because of it's better review score, the Princess Royal Jet Vac[plb_635712_price], the Electrolux ZUPG3801[plb_2440215_price], or the Samsung SC15F50[plb_2359193_price].

If you would prefer a vacuum with a better cleaning type then you might also want to look at the 20570-56[pl_2361036_price] (Wet), or the 21180-56[pl_2361037_price] (Wet) both from Russell Hobbs or the Polti Vaporetto Action[plb_1718656_price] (Wet) which also has a higher rating.
