Good bagless vacuum cleaner with room for improvement

Philips PowerPro Compact FC8477 / 91 vacuum cleaner (without bag, EEK B, EPA10) gray (household goods)

Customer Review

The Philips PowerPro Compact Canister is my second attempt with a bagless vacuum cleaner. The first model from Progress was a let down and the unit cost me a lot of nerves. It has now moved to the trash. After a trip back to a device with bag now a new test with this unit without bag. And to get to the point already: this device was able to convince me, although there are a few minor flaws.

I welcome:

- Easy assembly
Stow light weight of 4.5 kg, and good because not too clunky -
- Sufficiently long cable of 6 m
- Good workmanship
- Sufficiently long telescopic tube, well adjusted for tall people
- Easy emptying of the collecting container
- Powerful suction
- Separation of dust and air and exhaust air cleaning by PowerCyclone Technology
- Accessories: crevice nozzle and Polterdüse, more nozzles but have to be purchased
- Storage of the accessories to the telescope tube
- Already corresponds to the new EU directive with energy efficiency category B, and thus savings in electricity costs
- Wheels turn slightly
- Filter must be changed approximately every 2 years, therefore manageable follow-up costs
- Volume bearable

Needs improvement:

- Not a real handle to touch, you have to hold the handle of the collecting vessel
- Suction regulation only by closing and opening of the Louvre on the handle possible when the slot is open, it sucks also like my clothes on when you get too close to the tube body
- The toggle switch for changing the carpet cleaning is very tight and I have already been pinched a finger
- The rounded edges on the floor nozzle to get into corners is not good
- Carpet Cleaning little stiff
- The benefits of blue plastic bristles at the corners has not been revealed to me

My overall assessment is positive. I find that one. For the price a decent vacuum cleaner with good suction power Certainly a good entry-level model for a bagless vacuum cleaner. And can be seen in the collecting vessel and the result of the cleaning. I am satisfied and can recommend with a few limitations, the device further.
