Rosie, London Occasional user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The Speed Perfect button is fabulous. It reduces the cycle time often by half if you don't have a full load. It is fractionally smaller yet with a much larger drum than my old Bosch. Holds a superking size duvet cover, 2 sheets and 4 pillowcases easily. It has all the functions you need including hand wash and woolens. It is very quiet in wash cycle. It is AAA in eco terms and not expensive.
Bad points:
None except the spin is a bit noisier than I expected (but I need to balance it properly so this may not be true for long) though the wash cycle is virtually silent.

Good points:
easy to use and washes really well most of the time.
filter is easy to take out and clean.
Bad points:
just a year old and the bearings are going already.
sometimes have to spin the washing a second time because there is still a lot of water left in the washing.

Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
If you gently lean against the machine while it is running, the on/off button is so sensitive, it turns off the machine without realising, and the instructions for getting it started is quite difficult to understand

V, Frequent user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The programmes are great - and speed perfect is brilliant as is the 15 min quick wash. Really easy to use and a suprisingly large drum
Bad points:
I thought it was going to be really quiet - but it's not that much different to my previous - not at all bad though

Fi, Bristol Busy mum or dad

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Washes well . Quick cycle if you need. Some of standard cycles are long, due to Eco type programming for less resources. Good top spin of 1400.
Bad points:
Does not last. Bearings went within 2 years. It was used a lot, but it should be able to cope. It was replaced under warranty , but it should last longer than this. On exchange the courier said they are picking a lot of Bosch washers up currently. Spend a little more and get something with a 5 yr warranty- or pay for the extended one to 4 years. Currently about £120. May be worth it....
