Don't hold your breath.

Bosch.

Or anything else.



You need a special sort of mind to spot that X) Sadly I missed it

Oh, I've sussed it all now Looks a bit like an insult to me now X)

Edited by: "deeky" 21st Feb

Depends if I'm paying for it!

My new Beko fridge freezer is very pretty, but I feel it is a tad flimsy. Bosch is very functional (read: ugly unless you got to the top of the range), but I suspect it will last longer.

Edit: actually saying that I had a Bosch washing machine leak once upon a time. Was in an upstairs flat, cost me several hundred pounds to get downstairs electrics repaired to there is that. But it was fairly old.

Enough cool stories for one day.

Yes, there's definitely a hidden message in there. Dave missed it so it doesn't really matter I suppose.

Take your issue up with, Rom, dave'. This is a thread about the relative merits of the Beko and Bosch brands. I'll let others judge our respective humour.

Our Bosch washing machine is coming up for 20 years old, never had a problem with it. My wife loves it at full spinning cycle, can't get her off it .

Thank you, shadey. Yes, just Beko or Bosch will suffice.

In seriousness though some brands make better types of product than others, I think Beko have a pretty good rep generally but as you pointed out in that other thread a lot of incidents with dryers was it? Worth a bit of research.

Which one's cheaper Beko or Bosch?
Removing the cost in your question really removes the marketing costs but not their impact, I'll go for Miele instead or Beko.

I can understand the attraction of the Beko brand for the financially-disadvantaged, dave'. Hopefully it is clear to others that this is about quality, not ability to pay.

Bosch although Beko are best of the budget brands imo.

Well the guy who came to fix my dishwasher said that the way Bosch machines are made means that the closed units which are more common in Bosch than Beko makes them more expensive to repair so recommended Beko. Guess he's the expert eh?

Don't worry, dave'. I have your vote for Beko logged. Unfortunately I cannot include your local handyman, unless he registers his own vote as a HUKD member.

They have been offered to you, no mention of paying for them. Just interested in views on brand quality, Bosch or Beko if you had the choice?
