4 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The VAX U88-W1 has a brush tool, unlike most of the other vacuum cleaners of a similar age and spec to the U88-W1 which do not have a brush tool.

Chart Edit

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is typical of many vacuum cleaners of this spec and age.

Other Dry vacuum cleaners currently available which you might want to look at include the Hoover SP81BL11001[plb_2979798_price] which is cheaper; or the Miele Classic C1 Junior PowerLine[plb_3185521_price] which has better reviews.

Good Brand

We checked 4,882 owner and expert reviews for VAX vacuums and found that on average VAX has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. However we also found that VAX has poor reviews specifically for its high maximum input power vacuum cleaners.

Light

At only 4.7 kilograms, the VAX U88-W1 is quite light compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners that were released more than a year ago. The average weight of high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that have been around for around the same time as the U88-W1 is 7.7kg, and the weights range from 6.7g to 30kg.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might also want to consider the Zanussi ZAN7802EL[plb_2824251_price] (5.7kg).

2 Reasons Against

Very Low Suction Power

The average suction power of vacuum cleaners of a comparable spec and age to the U88-W1 is 560W, and the suction powers range from 200W to 1,300W. The VAX U88-W1 has a quite low suction power (only 210 Watts) compared to most of the other high maximum input power vacuum cleaners that are a similar age to the U88-W1.

Chart Edit

Not Cordless

The VAX U88-W1 is not cordless. Most of the other comparable spec vacuums that have been around for a similar time to the U88-W1 are also not cordless.
