Performance

Average Vacuum

The Philips FC847 has a relatively standard vacuum (25 kilopascals) compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuums that have been around for around the same time as this vacuum.

We compared this vacuum to all the other 25kPa suction vacuum cleaners and we think because of its better review score, the Philips FC8472 is also worth considering.

Vacuums with a higher vacuum that might be worth looking at include the Kärcher NT 35-1 (£289) (25.4kPa), or the Rowenta RO7834 (£227.96) (26kPa).

Quite Loud Noise Level

The Philips FC847 has one of the louder noise levels (84 decibels) amongst vacuums of this age. The noise levels of high maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago range from 57dB to 87dB, and the average noise level is 76dB.

We compared this vacuum to all the other 84dB noise level vacuum cleaners and we think because of their better review scores, the Dyson DC19T2, and the Philips FC8472 are also worth considering.

Weight & Dimensions

Light

The weights of vacuums of this age and spec range from 5g to 110kg. At only 4.5 kilograms, the Philips FC847 is quite light compared to most of the other vacuums of a similar age and type to this vacuum cleaner.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other 4.5kg heavy vacuums and we think the Philips FC8472 which has better reviews is also worth considering.
