Silvercrest is good cheap German brand. Got few different things and all works fine. Plus 3 years warranty .Hot for me.
Edited by: "jerryzalem" 30th Aug 2018
Got this, nowhere near as powerful as my cordless vax but cheap. Think of it as a floor sweeper with a bit of vacuum. For the price it's good. German brand? Suppose so but of course made in china.
Bought and returned when it was on offer last. Didn't think it did a good job. Better off paying more for a better model.
The spec looks great for £50 but it only mention cyclonic not dual cyclonic or multi-cyclonic so the filters may need constant cleaning. The cyclonic chamber is inline with the body so makes it better for floor use but worse for handheld which I should think is better overall unless you are planing on using it for mainly handheld use with a short tool (because you are slightly working against gravity it will be on it's side). There is no telescopic action to the main tube as it has a powered motor head so it may not be ideal for reaching up to the ceiling on stairs etc. The whole plastic chamber comes off so it is more likely dust and waste will fall out to the side or on your hand but you benefit from not having a latch on the chamber that could break. Obviously its generic Chinese cheap cordless vacuum with a restyle for Lidl's Silvercrest brand but the 3 year guarantee is pretty good and lets face it there is a strong chance this will fail within 3 years and you'll get your money back. The one issue is batteries are seen as sundry items that have a limited life so perhaps after 2 years if the batteries have very little capacity there isn't much you can do about it. The motor or charger might need to fail to actually successfully return it. Voted hot as great value but I think people need to be realistic about their expectations this is a cheap Chinese cordless vacuum that benefits from a powered brush head and more powerful motor than some models but it's also got a few budget more inferior parts of its specification. These would have a factory door price of about $25-30 so by the time you factor in importation, VAT etc its a competitive price. If a more famous brand (that had been reduced to slapping their brand on Chinese imports) was selling this through stores it would probably sell at £80-100 I would guess.

So, in summary, it's just like a Dyson then!
i'll go and take a look at it when it's in, don't expect it to be any different from an £80 vax but if it gets surface dust and kitchen bits off the floor it's good enough for me.

i have no idea what 130w in description means, would be nice to know how powerful the motor is as last 11v cordless i had can be compared to using a straw (granted motor power isn't everything, but it's an indication of suction)
I've been very impressed by this one over the last few months. Unfortunately it's gone up in price to £79.99 since I posted it (though still good value):

Sadly nothing like a Dyson those things are state of the art especially the V10 which is pretty amazing but I wouldn't spend £450 plus on one of those unless I had a very large disposable income. The sensible money normally goes not at the bottom or top money. This is near bottom end but does look very good value. Just my opinion of course but I've seen some V10 videos and what that can extract from carpet is pretty amazing especially for a cordless.

It's a 130W motor unless they are including the smaller motor for the brush bar as well then it could be something like 120W + 10W. Some larger cordless vacuums can be as low as 40W, maybe 90W is an average, higher end maybe 140-200W. It will be a generic chinese motor though, they tend to start off strong and then reduce a bit in power shortly into life in my experience which admittedly may not be accurate just my personal experience. At this sort of price you'll get basic motors and battery cells. Fit for purpose most of the time but very costed designs. Again for £50 you are getting a lot for your money and a long warranty as already pointed out someone had already returned a similar or same one due to weak performance which they weren't happy with. You can pick up stick corded vacuum cleaners with 600-700W motors for around £20-30 those clearly have much more power but are tied to mains sockets. Battery power means the motors are only operating on 10-20% of the power of similar mains vacuums.

At £50 its got to be worth a go and then return it if its not fit for purpose. With these weekly offers you don't get much time to decide if you want it and stock may be limited.

This is Made in Germany. Not in China.[Image]


Firstly that is a contact grill and secondly there is nothing there that say it's made in Germany just the address of the company that has imported it from wherever it came from. If you think this vacuum will be made in Germany I think you are incredibly naive to be honest even if it had 'made in Germany' it would likely be just assembled in Germany from Chinese parts but these sort of products are normally wholly made in China. I still can't get my head around why people think discount German supermarkets are somehow selling German made appliances and electronics there is no basis in logic for that and many German products are poor quality nowadays anyway. They tend to be the least reliable cars with the highest maintenance costs as an average. If you want high quality engineering of such products you'd want it made in Japan or maybe Taiwan or Korea. It's almost as expensive to manufacture in Germany as the UK and if this cordless vacuum was made in Germany it would probably be pretty terrible and run off AA batteries.

That was just example who make Silvercrest . Where is made? Maybe you right. Maybe in China. But what today is not made in China , Malaysia or Singapore? Dyson, Ninja blenders, Adidas etc. Even iPhone. That’s not means so is bad quality. Everything’s depends how company care about own reputation. Peace ✌🏻

I think Dyson's are made in Malaysia with much better conditions for staff and improved waste management for the environment over China but sadly not made in the UK and a rare example not made in China. Dyson do spend a huge amount of R&D money is spent in the UK and they pay a huge amount of tax in the UK. This is a Chinese product though both designed and manufactured in China merely badge slapped with Silvercrest. Silvercrest is a brand owned by Lidl.

Don't work for them or own a Dyson but remember an interview I think regarding the move to Malaysia. I've got a few vacuum cleaners but the main one I use is a Panasonic cyclonic cleaner which was made in Mexico strangely. Definitely wouldn't mind a V10 though but its just too much money.

Silvercrest, as far as I'm aware is a Lidl own brand, as is Parkside and many of of the brands they sell.


EDIT: euipo.europa.eu/eSe…ch/

Unfortunately, this means various manufacturers/importers could have supplied Silvercrest branded products, so you can't assume the quality of one product will be as good as another.

This one appears to have been supplied by hoyerhandel.com/pro…en/

I have a couple of Lidl's parkside branded tools that were made by Grizzly (and to be fair are pretty good), I believe Einhill also used to make some parkside products.

Not a huge amount of suck. But, of course easy to get to car unlike corded.
Has anyone bought one today? Views?
I got one today with the view that I will return it if it's not up to the job. I charged it and vacuumed my not too dirty house. It's got no where near the amount of suction as my corded vax, but that was expected. When I first turned it on I checked the suction against my hand and found it disappointing, it didn't seem like enough.....but it actually did a good job, picking up dust, fluff and light grit/sand. I have wood floors with a few rugs and for light cleaning it is effective and a joy to use. The quoted 20 minute run time is accurate. I used it for about 20 mins with no loss of power, but when plugged back into the charger it indicated the lowest battery level. My conclusion.... I will be keeping both this for regular use, and my corded for "big" cleans.
