Rated 1 out of 5 by from Several unacceptable featuresReview for Argos of the Bosch Athlet cleaner BCH65MGKGB/02 I bought this vacuum cleaner as a replacement for an elderly Dyson as I was impressed by the reviews I read and by the fact that it claims to have a long run time and a short charging time. Despite being reassured by a Bosch service engineer that it meets specifications : Invoice Number: FS880903 Invoice Date 31/03/2017 D.O.R. 27/03/2017, I am not at all impressed with this machine. It does not pick up all the normal household dirt on the carpet and on switching it off, promptly deposits much of the dirt it has collected back onto the carpet -- I then have to get out the dustpan and brush to sweep it up. I find that much of the dirt it does pick up doesn't get as far as the dust collecting box, but remains below it in the tube, where it compacts, meaning that I have to disassemble the machine to remove it using tweezers and a knitting needle. As I have mild arthritis in my hands and wrists, I find it is extremely difficult to do this and often have to ask for help; anyone with more severe arthritis would find it well-nigh impossible. Also, removing the lower section to connect the hose in order to use the attachments is equally difficult as is reassembling it all afterwards. Once I have struggled to attach the hose, I find the whole machine very clumsy and ungainly to use: the shoulder strap provided is not long enough to be able to carry the body comfortably and I find myself having to drag it along behind me. I find that, when I use the attachments, there is insufficient suction, even when the dust box is completely empty, for them to be at all effective. I feel that I am being generous in awarding this machine one star. Susan Sylvester

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get's the thumbs up from meSubmitted as part of a review panel. I am very impressed with this machine. It's cordless, which is a huge bonus in my opinion and this does't affect its suction power in the slightest. It worked just as well on my thick carpet as it did on my tiled floor. As long as you remember to select the correct floor setting, it will be a breeze. I did find manoeuvring it a little tricky at first but once I was used to how it moved I found it very easy. The machine vacuumed my entire 3 bed house, 4 times over before it needed to be charged. Charge time is fairly reasonable when you consider how powerful the suction is. Best to leave it until fully charged to reap the impressive battery life. Another notable feature is that it is a bagless machine, which is very simple to empty and clean. It also has various attachments and a shoulder strap to help tackle the stairs. I found the attachments a little fiddly, however I feel this is down to the product being new and I'm sure with more use, this will become much easier over time. It was a little heavier than I expected but this doesn't affect how happy I am with it. Overall, this is a great vacuum and well worth the investment. It looks good, performs effortlessly, sturdy and easy to use. No more searching for plugs and lugging around big bulky uprights!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great VacI have been using this vac for some time now and can happily state that it is still wonderful. Unfortunately, I have had to remove two stars due to the attachment system! When attaching the hose to do the stairs the long arm of the vac remains in use for the on/off switch, once you have connected the strap and hooked over yourself the on/off switch is behind your back! which means the vacuum is too long and awkward to manage with attachments! As this is such a good vac I find this is real shame to mention. But I am now vacuuming the stairs using the vac rather than the attachments (don't ask how!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upright BOCH AlrightFinally got the product. Straight out of the box one notices the beautiful design and solid construction. After the initial 6 hr full charge, we started testing. First impression, the suction power is amazing. Indeed far better than most corded vacuums I've used before. One simple floor attachment, no adjustment need on surface change. It slides from corridor carpet into bathroom and kitchen tiles with no need for changes or adjustments. It simply glides sucking all the dust and particles in its path. Full marks for performance. Beautifully balanced, with only 3 kilos weight, it moves effortlessly along and around corners with the easiest of operation. Then the extras, accessories. A quick unclip of the bottom piece, attach the good size hose in its place, and choose the one end tool to use. A smaller softer base for bedding, curtains and all upholstery. Also very useful for car vacuum cleaning. Or the pointed flat hose for edges and crevices. Here one point one needs to get aquainted with. With the attachments on, the vacuum cleaner will have to be worn over the shoulder. No need to get nervous. With only 3 kilos, it's easy and light work with the shoulder strap provided. Just get used to it. And so ends the road test of this marvellous machine. Solidly built, even beautiful to look at, this superb cleaner is a top performer. I never knew I had so much fine dust accumulated over the years in my carpet. The BOCH got rid of it. The bagless dirt compartment is a joy to use. Just needs a shake, but rinsing the tube and washing the sponge filter is also advisable. In all, a beautiful efficient machine, may even become enjoyable to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Submitted as part of a selected review panelSubmitted as part of a selected review panel: so my first impression was how great the suction was, as a cordless I was expecting it to be less powerful but not at all, in fact I think it is better than most corded. The battery time is excellent too, I could do my whole house and still have run time. I would hoover more often because of the ease of using it, no bulky hoover to get out of the cupboard, plug in and drag around, so easy to just go from room to room with this cordless vac. After just one week of using this product my carpets looked like new again, the dust goblet was full after each use and the amount of debris it picked up was so impressive, my not very old previous {corded} hoover was put to shame ! I have two cats and it picks up their shed fur with no problem. Overall super impressed. Now for the not so good points, there is no supplied bag for the attachments, which was a nuisance but I got around this by putting them into a small bag for life. Also the way the strap attaches to the hoover when you are doing the stairs could be thought out better, maybe a ring attachment and a clip, the second time I used it on my stairs the Velcro attachment came undone, it was my lightening reaction that saved it from falling down the stairs. I did the rest of the stairs by just holding the vac, not ideal, but having said that, it was so much better for doing the stairs. My old cylinder hoover was too wide for the steps so I would balance it and hold it on the stair with my knee whilst trying to hoover the stairs, so awkward ! this way of slinging it over your shoulder and hoovering with the attachment so much easier And quicker too. Lastly I would like to say how stylish it looks, some stick type cordless are just plain ugly, this is beautifully designed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and easy to move around the houseI have been using the Bosch BCH65MGKGB marron glacé cordless vacuum cleaner for just over a month now and I have been very impressed with its performance. It was very easy to assemble into its floor cleaning mode and was very sturdy despite its lightweight appearance. Since its arrival, I have put it through its paces daily, and it was more than capable of cleaning my carpets efficiently which is no mean feat in a household with children and six cats. I was very impressed with how clean it made the rug in my lounge. Being a busy room, the rug gets lots of action and is usually covered with a combination of pet hair and food crumbs from my youngest. Before it arrived, I had cleaned the rug with my popular brand no bag cleaner and so I was very surprised with the additional dirt which was collected. I was even more impressed by how it managed to raise the pile back to good as new. It felt very liberating to be able to vacuum without trailing wire getting in the way. This also makes it much faster to put away after use without having to wind a cird away. Much better for a quick tidy up when time is of the essence. Obviously, due to the machine parts all being brand new, it was quite stiff to disassemble to use in stair cleaning mode with the sling and hose attachment but I would imagine this will ease over time with use. It was fairly easy to fit the hose and I set about cleaning the stairs. This is where the design lets itself down a little as it is a little cumbersome to carry that way, plush the powerful button isn't in the most convenient position as it is below the main handle so it is awkward to turn off and on when being carried over the shoulder. It didn't seem as powerful in that setup either but still did a very good job. One of the fantastic features of the cleaner is it's weight. I struggled with my other cleaner to move it between floors in my house but this is so lightweight and easy to move I have been able to clean my house easily. We live in an average sized 3 bedroomed house and from full charge and after cleaning stairs, landing and all the bedrooms, the charge only ran out after just over an hour. I was very impressed by that as I really giving the house a thorough cleaning. The cleaner has a very small footprint when standing to charge and I have been able to leave it on charge at the foot of our stairs and it hasn't been in the way at all. Another consideration is storage of the hose and attachments as they don't attach onto the cleaner for storage. In all, I would recommend this cleaner to anybody who wants a very powerful lightweight cleaner but doesn't have the space to store a larger machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vacuum Cleaner - Very PowerfulSubmitted as part of a selected review panel. I liked the look of this vacuum in the picture, but when I took it out of the box I realised that the pictures do not do it justice in my opinion. It is a very smart looking, sleek upright vacuum that does not look out of place wherever it is stored, on the landing, dining room, etc., far too good looking to be kept in a cupboard! It is easy to charge, just plug it in overnight and you are ready to go. Power wise it is brilliant. It has three power settings. I vacuumed the whole downstairs of a largish three bedroom house and the battery did not die on me. Bear in mind I have a hairy Spaniel who likes to get dirty and three cats and this still coped brilliantly well. I started using it on the high power as I thought I needed it with the job it had to do, but then found that the second power level was more than adequate the majority of the time, so I also managed to do upstairs! It did well on corded carpet, pile carpet and tiled floors, not to mention vinyl, all without having to change or push any buttons! Love the fact you can see the battery level so you know it won't die half way through a room. Nothing more annoying than a cordless vacuum that dies halfway through a room and having to get the heavy corded one out to finish the job! It also has accessories, which are useful, but I did find these a bit of awkward to use. However, at least it does have them should you need them and the other benefits outweigh this niggle. Maintenance wise it is very easy to remove and empty the dust canister. Another brilliant favourite feature is just how easy it is to remove the brush from the floor head to remove hairs etc - as I said I have animals! All in all this is an excellent vacuum that would rival many corded vacuums. It has long battery life, is easy to maintain, good looking and does the job well. This is not a cordless vacuum that is only good for the odd spill, it really is able to do the job of a corded vacuum without the weight and without the hassle of the cord. I will be buying one for my static caravan - this one is too handy here to take there! I have used it for the past few weeks and have had no issues with it - it is as good now as when I first used it. Excellent performance, easy to maintain and good looking. I would definitely recommend this machine!
