2 Reasons For

Light

The lightest vacuum cleaner of this spec and age is 660g heavy and the heaviest is 11kg. At only 4.2 kilograms, the Philips FC832 is fairly light compared to most of the other vacuums of this spec and age.

If you are not worried about having a heavier weight then you might also want to consider the Siemens VSQ4GP1264 (4.7kg).

Philips Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuums

On average vacuums from Philips are rated 71%, which is in the top 96% of all vacuum manufacturers that we have looked at.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Philips FC832 does not have a brush tool, although keep in mind that most of the other vacuums that were released more than two years ago also do not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Very Low Vacuum

The Philips FC832 has a fairly low vacuum (only 19.5 kilopascals) compared to most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for more than two years. Vacuums of this spec and age have vacuums of between 14kPa and 210kPa.

Vacuum cleaners with a higher vacuum that might be worth considering include the AquaVac Excell 30 (£113.12) (20kPa) which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Operating Radius

If you are looking for a vacuum cleaner with a bigger operating radius then you might want to consider the Hoover CJ925 (£88.94) (8.5m).

At 84 decibels, the Philips FC832 has a fairly loud noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuums that have been around for around the same time as the FC832.

Alternative vacuums with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Rowenta RO52 (£99.99) (84dB).

Not Cordless

Chart Edit

Quite Low Airflow

Across all the vacuums of this spec and age the airflows range from 42l/min to 4,100l/min, and the average airflow is 2,500l/min. With an airflow of only 1,764 liter per minute, the Philips FC832 has one of the lower airflows amongst medium maximum input power vacuums of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Cord Length

Chart Edit

Only E Dust Re-Emission Class

The Philips FC832 has an E dust re-emission class which is better than the A dust re-emission class found on most medium maximum input power vacuums that came out around the same time as it. The worst dust re-emission class of all vacuums of this type and age is G and the best is A.

Chart Edit

Only D Hard Floor Cleaning Performance Class

The Philips FC832 has a better hard floor cleaning performance class than most medium maximum input power vacuums that came out more than two years ago. This vacuum has a D hard floor cleaning performance class, whereas most medium maximum input power vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as it have an A hard floor cleaning performance class.
