2 Reasons For

Light

Across all the medium maximum input power vacuums that were launched around the same time as the FC8120 the weights range from 660g to 11kg, and the average weight is 6.3kg. The Philips FC8120 is one of the lighter vacuums of this age and spec (only 4 kilograms) amongst medium maximum input power vacuums of this age.

We compared all the other 4kg heavy vacuums to this vacuum cleaner and we think the Dyson DC36 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

8 Reasons Against

Quite Small Operating Radius
