VAX Has Good Reviews for Its Vacuums

We looked at average ratings for each vacuum manufacturer and found that whilst VAX has good average reviews across all vacuums, VAX has poor reviews specifically within its high maximum input power vacuum cleaners range.

Chart

Fairly Long Cord Length

The Power 7 Pet has one of the longer cord lengths (8 meters) amongst vacuum cleaners of this age. Across all the vacuum cleaners of a comparable spec and age to the Power 7 Pet the cord lengths range from 2.1m to 16m.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

User Reviews Are Poor

On average, based on 100 user reviews this vacuum has an overall user rating of 63 out of 100. If all the vacuum cleaners of a similar type and age are ranked by average user review score then this high maximum input power vacuum is in the bottom 11%.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Like most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that were released around the same time as the Power 7 Pet, the VAX Power 7 Pet does not have a brush tool.

We compared this vacuum to all the other vacuum cleaners with a brush tool and we think 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 also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
