7 Reasons Against

Poor User Reviews

On average, Dual V Advance W87-DV-B owners rated this vacuum 64 out of 100. Owners aren't convinced by this high maximum input power vacuum.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The VAX Dual V Advance W87-DV-B does not have a brush tool, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec vacuums that have been around for more than two years also do not have a brush tool.

Other vacuums which also have a brush tool that you might want to consider include the VAX Astrata C90-AS-B-AS[plb_2925234_price], the AEG Vampyr T10[plb_2496720_price], or the Samsung SC8830[plb_1412758_price] which is also higher rated.

Not Robust

Some VAX Dual V Advance W87-DV-B reviewers considered that it was not well made. Sean5302 mentioned “Gimcrack build, unreliable, fire risk” in their review of this vacuum cleaner.

Not Good in Terms of Size

Four VAX Dual V Advance W87-DV-B reviewers said that the VAX Dual V Advance W87-DV-B was not heavy and bulky. Alexander Bryce mentioned “Fairly heavy to handle when loaded.” in his review of the VAX Dual V Advance W87-DV-B. Littleowl wrote “It is a large and heavy machine, made from a brittle plastic so if you aren't careful with it I imagine it would break easily” in their review. Two years ago Marand mentioned in their review “Bulky & powerful”.

Unacceptable Noise Level

One customer who reviewed it mentioned that it was not noisy. Mr. Guy Mcevoy said in his review of the VAX Dual V Advance W87-DV-B on Amazon “Also, be aware it is a noisy beast”.

Heavy

Comparable spec vacuum cleaners that came out more than two years ago have weights of between 1.2kg and 110kg, and the average weight is 7.8kg. The VAX Dual V Advance W87-DV-B is quite heavy (10.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

Most similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been available for more than two years are not cordless. The VAX Dual V Advance W87-DV-B is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.

Vacuum cleaners which are cordless that might be worth considering include the Electrolux T8[plb_1810491_price], or the Grundig VCC 7070[plb_1886681_price] which is also higher rated.
