Jen, Cheshire Pet owner

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent suction - adaptable for all types of floor
Easy to empty
Extremely quiet I can vacuum while baby is asleep & late at night if I need to without disturbing anyone
Bad points:
Is a little heavy
Attachments always fall off so I take them off before I start hoovering
Occasionally the lead (which retracts automatically) does so while hoovering which can be a bit of a pain

Brian, Harpenden Busy mum or dad

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
• Quiet motor
• Solid construction
• Easy to clean filter
• Very good at pulling dust out of carpets
• Brush attachment is very soft and unlikely to scratch woodwork, plastics etc
• Upholstery attachment is very good – once you find it – the soft brush unclips from it.
Bad points:
• Cumbersome to use because:
o Hose is not sufficiently flexible
o Hose does not rotate easily at either end
o Machine does not move very easily
• Difficult to remove main head from solid tube and tube from hose
• Clip that holds nozzle and upholstery attachment on to tube kept falling off (cured using 2 black cable ties!).
• Attachments fall out of clip very easily when using main head
• Not very good at picking up ‘bits’ from carpet probably because there is too little air flow through the head ( at higher speeds, the head ‘sucks’ the carpet so tightly it is hard to move and no air gets in, at lower speeds, there is just isn’t enough air flow) – have to take off head (not easy!) and collect bits with open tube
• Cable rewinds when you least want it to (needs a hook to wrap extended cable around)

Penny, Taunton Frequent user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very quiet & very powerful. Really nice vacuum cleaner to use after purchasing the turbo floor brush (cost an extra £45.00)
Bad points:

Very difficult to vacuum carpets due to high suction power, however much better with the turbo floor brush (purchased at extra cost). The tool holder falls off for a pastime, and I have had to use double sided tape to keep it where it should be.

Manufacturer's Description

Bosch recognise that the loud noise of a vacuum cleaner is something customers have had to deal with for too long, but no longer. The GS-50 power silence ensures excellent dust pick up and performance but with a fraction of the noise at just 66dB. The sound insulation, compressor motor, wide tube opening and purpose built adjustable all floor head all contribute to this machine being whisper quiet.

SensorBagless means that airflow through the machine is constantly monitored. Should airflow decrease below 95%, a red light flashes, indicating to the user either that the filter needs cleaning or the dustbox needs emptying – simple!

The GS-50 benefits from an energy saving Bosch compressor motor using only 1200W whilst giving a performance comparable to 2400W. With energy consumption being such a prominent part of the Bosch philosophy, the compressor motor adds to an ever increasing portfolio of Bosch innovations.

At just 66dB the Power Silence gives a brilliant pick up, utilising our compressor motor technology using only 1200W of power but producing a huge 2400W.

Also included is double HEPA 13 filtration and as with all our bagless models the Sensor bagless technology ensures air flow is running through the machine consistently.
