4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The FC6408/01 does not have a brush tool. Most of the other latest similar spec vacuum cleaners also do not have a brush tool.

We compared all the other vacuums which also have a brush tool to this vacuum cleaner and we think the Electrolux ZB3015SW[plb_3804601_price], or the Bosch BGS5SMRT66[plb_3830502_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

A Bit Expensive

A few people wrote that the Philips PowerPro Aqua was not cheap. Amazon Customer wrote in their Philips PowerPro Aqua review on Amazon this month “It's ridiculously overpriced for the amount of power you get from it”. L. Wilson wrote in their Philips PowerPro Aqua review “It is the most expensive cordless I have had” yet they still gave it a rating of 80 out of 100. L. Wilson also said “Lucky I have a spare Price - quite expensive”.

Several Philips PowerPro Aqua owners reckoned that it was not good value for money. Rachel mentioned this year “Considerably cheaper so that alone isn't worth the price” in her review of the Philips PowerPro Aqua. Rob S wrote in his review of this vacuum cleaner on Amazon “Can’t justify the price, this is going to replace the Dyson, much easier to handle, so light, I can take it from room to room” but in spite of that he still gave it a score of 80 out of 100.

One Philips PowerPro Aqua reviewer who purchased it thought it was not a bargain for the price. In December H. Ashford wrote in their review of this vacuum cleaner on Amazon “It is not cheap” although they still rated the product 4 stars.

Poor Support

A number of Philips PowerPro Aqua reviewers said in their reviews that it did not have good technical guidance. This month Bookinda said in their review of the Philips PowerPro Aqua “It is a little difficult to understand the instruction to set up”. Chinatown Blue wrote in the same month “Plus, many of the instructions are not clear at all” in their Philips PowerPro Aqua review. Chinatown Blue also said “That isn't shown in the pictorial instructions and I have poor eyesight”.

Not Cordless

Like most of the other vacuums that were launched in the last year, the FC6408/01 is not cordless.

If you would prefer a vacuum that is cordless then you might also want to look at the Electrolux ZB3014G[plb_3289372_price], the Rowenta RH8870WO[plb_3400566_price], or the Bosch BBHMOVE1N[plb_3582146_price].
