6 Reasons For

Fairly Big Operating Radius

At 11 meters, the BGS5230S has a quite big operating radius compared to most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that have been on the market for more than two years. The smallest operating radius of vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago is 1.1m, the biggest is 32m, and the average operating radius is 11m.

We compared all the other 11m operating radius vacuums to this vacuum cleaner and we think the Miele S8 Silence Plus (£49.99) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

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

Bosch Has Good Vacuum Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Bosch vacuums and also specifically for Bosch low maximum input power vacuums and found that in both cases Bosch had good ratings.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Bosch BGS5230S has a fairly quiet noise level (only 66 decibels) compared to most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that are a comparable age to the BGS5230S. The average noise level of similar spec vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago is 77dB.

Vacuums with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Thorne Electric U-40 (63.3dB), or the Numatic RSB140 (£662.28) (65dB).

A Hard Floor Cleaning Performance Class

The BGS5230S has a better hard floor cleaning performance class than most low maximum input power vacuums that have been around for around the same time as it. This vacuum has an A hard floor cleaning performance class, whereas most vacuums that are a comparable age to it have a C hard floor cleaning performance class.

This vacuum cleaner's hard floor cleaning performance class (A) is actually the best hard floor cleaning performance class amongst all vacuum cleaners that are a similar age to the BGS5230S.

A D hard floor cleaning performance class is the worst hard floor cleaning performance class amongst similar types of vacuum cleaner.

Chart Edit

Quite Long Cord Length

With a cord length of 8 meters, the Bosch BGS5230S has one of the longer cord lengths amongst low maximum input power vacuums of this age. Low maximum input power vacuums that were launched more than two years ago have cord lengths of between 2.5m and 13m.

5 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Chart Edit

Only Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is typical of many vacuum cleaners of this age and type.

If the cleaning type of this vacuum is too bad for you then you might also want to look at the Hoover CleanJet CJ625 (£75.99) (Wet) which also has a higher rating.
