Poor Technical Guidance

Two people reckoned that the product did not have good technical guidance. Tailor said on Amazon two years ago “It has memory.* It doesn't have a vent in the handle for when it does get stuck.* Instructions confusing as they cover a range of vacuums all with different filters” in their Bosch BSGL5AL2GB review.

Average Noise Level

At 75 decibels, the BSGL5AL2GB has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuums that came out around the same time as this vacuum cleaner.

We compared all the other 75dB noise level vacuum cleaners to this vacuum and we think the Numatic Harry Hoover HHR200-A2 (£129) which has better reviews; or the Zelmer ZVC545AP (£131.84) which is cheaper are also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Electrolux ESGREEN ErgoSpace (75dB).
