4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Brush Tool
Like most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that are a similar age to the FC8769, the Philips FC8769 does not have a brush tool.
We compared all the other vacuum cleaners which also have a brush tool to this vacuum cleaner and we think the Siemens VSZ5337 or the Complete C3 Silence, or the Complete C2 ($314.59) both from Miele are also worth considering.
Very Low Vacuum Suction
At only 16.8 kilopascals, the Philips FC8769 has a quite low vacuum suction compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and type to the FC8769. Similar spec vacuum cleaners that have been around for a comparable time to the FC8769 have vacuum suctions of between 16kPa and 18kPa.
Most vacuum cleaners of a comparable age and spec to the FC8769 are not cordless. The Philips FC8769 is no exception to this as it too is not cordless.
Very Small Dust Capacity
The Philips FC8769 has one of the smaller dust capacities (only 2 liters) amongst vacuums of this age. Vacuum cleaners of a similar age and type to the FC8769 have dust capacities of between 0.24L and 25L.
