FC6823/01 SpeedPro Max video review


The rod vacuum cleaner Philips - FC6823/61 SpeedPro Max comes in a simple but functionally illustrated package and is ready to use as soon as it is removed from the box. The operating instructions describe in 25 languages how to handle the device. The manual is enclosed in an envelope with the warranty card.


The device is black and metallic red on the main device and also the foot has these colors.


The vacuum cleaner can be easily assembled. The suction arm has integrated furniture, upholstery and corner nozzle and thus avoids many loose accessories. The different feet help the vacuum cleaner to be equipped for all surfaces. Another small foot is suitable for furniture and removes lint or hair.

The dirt container can be removed, or a flap can be opened and the waste falls out directly. The container is easy to clean by hand and the filter can be replaced. The brushes on the vacuum cleaner feet can also be removed by moving a slider to the side.

To empty the dirt container you can completely remove the container or only open the bottom and the dirt falls out

At 2.7 kilograms, the device is quite handy and therefore easy to lift. The castors under the foot make it easier to use and the weight does not have a very negative effect.

The volume is about 72 dB and therefore slightly louder than a normal conversation volume.

Particularly practical are the LED lights at the front of the suction foot, which help to better spot the dust behind furniture or in darker areas and to vacuum more efficiently.

Both during the charging process and during use, a digital display shows the battery status in percent, so that you can easily orientate yourself.

With the wall mount, the vacuum cleaner has a fixed place and can charge there at the same time. This means that the vacuum cleaner is immediately ready for use when you want to use it. The appliance is charged via a magnetic point and no plug has to be plugged in.

Cleaning result

The cleaning result is good and, above all, smooth floors are cleaned in no time by the vacuum cleaner. Even on carpets, the vacuum cleaner only needs to be applied a few times to every spot, and the result is very satisfactory. Vacuumed edges are exceptionally clean and free of particles, just as larger surfaces.

In comparison, you can see that the vacuum cleaner works very cleanly, especially on the edges, and the surfaces are also well-vacuumed

A slider on the handle allows you to manually adjust 2 suction strengths and the vacuum cleaner can clean the floor even faster.

In normal mode, the battery lasts about 65 minutes, which is enough for normal use in several rooms. The charging time is about 5 hours.

We have evaluated about 150 reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 75 percent of buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars).
