Good points:
Really silent and the cleaning performance is fabulous.
Bad points:
The half load program's time about the same than the normal cycle. It's not economical.
It is used too much rinse aid. The rinse aid light comes on every week.

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
It's quiet, looks good from the outside - no other redeeming features
Bad points:
I bought this dishwasher just before Christmas 2011, so have waited a good while to post my review.
I would describe myself as a loyal Bosch customer, I have a twelve year old Bosch washing machine, a Bosch tumble dryer, several bosch power tools, gosh, even my cars have Bosch components.
This was purchased to replace a seven year old Bosch dishwasher that was fantastic, everything you would expect a quality product to be..this replacement is proving to be a huge disappointment.
The build quality is inferior to the previous product, I can accept that, most things seem to be these days, I suspect to supposedly help the environment.
My BIG problem is the quality of washing. IT FAILS TO WASH THE DISHES.
We use premium tablets, thoroughly clean the washer on a regular basis, top up salt, rinse aid etc, do not put excessively dirty dishes into the washer, do not overfill the washer, it just doesn't clean.
Quick wash or economy are useless, the hot wash occasionally cleans everything but generally the washer fails to do its job.
I would ask for a replacement but since there is nothing mechanically wrong with this one, I don't see that I can demand a replacement.

I cannot recommend this product, I can't imagine that another washer could be worse than this one !!
PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS MACHINE
