Electrolux has unveiled a new range of bagged canister vacuum cleaners called Pure D8, of which the Pure D8.2 Silence tested here is one. This series aims to be environmentally friendly, with the devices being made from 55% recycled materials.
It’s almost faultless for the Pure D8 Silence canister vacuum cleaner, the first in the D8 series to enter our comparison. Good suction performance, maneuverability and low noise level, the Electrolux D8 Silence has it all. We also appreciate its electronic variator on the handle which avoids having to bend down to change the suction power.
- Quality finishes.
- Excellent suction on thick carpet.
- Useful and functional “Smart” mode.
- Very quiet vacuum cleaner.
- Perfect filtration.
- No LED ramp on the main brush.
- Bag capacity a little limited.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude the prices of stores whose the VAT policy is not clear (so-called “gray” stores, typically in the case of imports from China).
If the technical sheet of the Philips 3000 Series XD3112/09 is not the most extravagant, the manufacturer’s promises are almost all kept. Not only is the suction performance quite good on different surfaces, but this vacuum cleaner is also very practical and comfortable to use. Handy and efficient, the Philips 3000 Series XD3112/09 therefore offers good value for money. However, we regret that it does not have a special parquet brush, which would have been a plus for vacuuming all hard floors.
