7 Reasons For

Has a Brush Tool

The Philips FC99 has a brush tool, unlike most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that have been available for a similar time to the FC99 which do not have a brush tool.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative vacuum cleaners with a brush tool currently available including the Dyson DC52 Extra Allergy[plb_1731086_price] which is cheaper; or the AEG UOALLFLOOR[plb_2144141_price] which has better reviews.

There are a number of alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool that you might also want to look at including the Sebo Airbelt K3 Premium[plb_1724682_price].

Quite Big Operating Radius

At 11 meters, the Philips FC99 has a fairly big operating radius compared to most of the other vacuums that have been around for more than two years. Vacuums of this type and age have operating radiuss of between 2.5m and 27m.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other 11m operating radius vacuums and we think the Sebo Automatic X4 Pet[plb_1963126_price] which is cheaper; or the Thomas Aqua+ Pet & Family[plb_1718337_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a vacuum with a bigger operating radius then you might also want to consider the ASR 25 L SC[pl_2694701_price] (11.2m), or the ASR 35 M[pl_2694874_price] (11.2m) both from Metabo.

3 Reasons Against

Quite Low Vacuum

With a vacuum of only 17 kilopascals, the Philips FC99 has a very low vacuum compared to most of the other similar spec vacuum cleaners that are a comparable age to the FC99. The lowest vacuum of vacuums that were released more than two years ago is 16kPa and the highest is 250kPa.

If this vacuum vacuum is too low for you then you might want to look at the ASR 25 L SC[pl_2694701_price] (248kPa), or the ASR 35 M[pl_2694874_price] (248kPa) both from Metabo or the Kärcher NT 35-1[plb_2472823_price] (25.4kPa).

Not Cordless

Chart Edit

Only C Hard Floor Cleaning Performance Class

The Philips FC99 has a better hard floor cleaning performance class than most vacuums of a similar spec and age to it. This vacuum has a C hard floor cleaning performance class, whereas most vacuums that are a comparable age to it have an A hard floor cleaning performance class.

A C hard floor cleaning performance class is actually the worst hard floor cleaning performance class across all vacuums of a similar spec and age to the FC99.

An A hard floor cleaning performance class is the best hard floor cleaning performance class amongst comparable types of vacuum.
