13 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The Philips FC872 has a brush tool, unlike most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been on the market for around the same time as the FC872 which do not have a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other vacuum cleaners with a brush tool currently available including the Compact C2 Allergy, or the Complete C3 ($466.00) both from Miele or the Siemens VSQ8SIL66A which has better reviews.

Fairly Big Operating Radius

The Philips FC872 has one of the bigger operating radii (11 meters) amongst low maximum input power vacuums of this age. The operating radii of vacuum cleaners of this spec and age range from 1.1m to 27m.

There are a number of other 11m operating radius vacuums currently available which you might want to consider including the Miele Complete C3 ($466.00) which has better reviews; or the Philips FC9197 which is cheaper.

If this Philips vacuum operating radius is too small for you then you might want to look at the Siemens VSQ8SIL66A (12m and higher rated).

2 Reasons Against

Only Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on low maximum input power vacuums that are a similar age to it.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other Dry vacuum cleaners currently available including a cheaper vacuum such as the Philips FC9197 or you might consider a higher rated vacuum such as the Complete C3 ($466.00), or the Compact C2 Allergy both from Miele.

Not Cordless

If you are looking for a vacuum that is cordless then you might want to look at the Bissell MultiReach 18V Cordless, or the Black & Decker HVFE2150L which is also cheaper.
